6 days ago – Tue, May 04, 2021 at 02:41:58 AM

Hi guys, I hope you’re all doing well! Just some quick updates before we show today’s release:

Personal Note: There’s a ton of things to track with this campaign and I’m working hard to make sure I don’t miss anything, and while I’m feeling much better after Covid, but I’m struggling with fatigue and my brain is, well, super mushy. If something is missing or if something isn’t clear, please let me know: FatesEndTowers@gmail.com. I’ll use the bi-monthly updates to help clarify things as well as announce released files.


Reminder: Please oh PLEASE check the Production Schedule for release dates and file update notes: https://www.fatesend.net/production-schedule This is a live document and I update it often.

The release info for Add-ons can be found on the right-side of the Production Schedule. All FE1 tower ornaments have been uploaded to their directory. I’ll be working on the FE1 Dice Jail versions over the next week.


IMPORTANT -- NEW MERCHANTS: If you did not receive your Merchant License, please send me an email (with your backer email address) and I’ll issue you one:  FatesEndTowers@gmail.com (***Backerkit does not send me any sort of notification when new backers purchase a Merchant License, so I need backers to contact me for their licenses.)

If you find a FatesEnd Listing that doesn’t include the Merchant License, please send me an email: FatesEndTowers@gmail.com (please don’t call them out in the FB groups or on Discord, I don’t want anyone to feel called out).

Merchant Page on FatesEnd.net: I am SO sorry, but I’ve decided to pull this page (for now) since potential buyers aren’t actually using it, and I haven’t found a simple solution for displaying/importing Merchant info that doesn’t cost a fortune. 😕 Everything I spend my time on has to be weighed against the HUGE constant list of to-dos, and I don't think the Merchant page been a positive return so far. I'm so sorry Merchants. We spent a few days looking over solutions, but we were unable to find a good one for now.
 

Print Testing Group (FE2 Backers only).  If you're a FE2 backer and you want to help print test, please join this FB Group (include your backer email address) https://www.facebook.com/groups/FatesEnd.PrintTesters then send me an email with your backer email address, then I'll send you the invite to the Print Test Google Drive. FatesEndTowers@gmail.com *Please do not release any photos of print tests until the files are officially released.

SURVEYS! ALL BACKERS - PLEASE READ!
23 days ago – Sat, Apr 17, 2021 at 03:39:53 AM

This is it! Your FatesEnd2 surveys are going out today! Please keep an eye out for the survey in your inbox. We’re going to release them in stages, so please be patient.

***IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING BackerKit: You can’t access any files until your survey is filled out and locked (I will lock them on my end). If you want to make changes later, please fill out your survey and submit it (soon/now) then contact me later (FatesEndTowers@Gmail.com) when you’re ready to add an upgrade or add-ons, and I’ll unlock your survey.

Please watch this video for a walkthrough on filling out surveys. Some things have changed (slightly) but the process is pretty much the same: 

 Changes not shown in the video: 

  •  Upgrades: The No Thanks option is at the top on pg1
  •  Personalize: You’ll be prompted to add your Personalize info here vs emailing to me
  •  Place My Order: I had this wrong. After you click on this button, you can go back and make changes until I lock your order. Since backers are not able to access their files until I lock their orders, I’ll be locking orders every few hours today, then three times/day for the next week or so, then once per day on the weekdays from there on out.
  •  Digital Downloads: Some of you may have duplicate links in your Digital Downloads section. I’m so sorry, I did try to fix this but I had no luck. Just ignore the duplicate links.

You can always access your survey OR files (*after completing your survey) here: https://fatesend.backerkit.com/Be sure to use the email address that you used when supporting this campaign in Kickstarter.

Also, look for Discord & FB links in the “Digital Downloads” section in Backerkit after you complete your survey. Please be sure to read the instructions before joining any of the groups.

A POX BE UPON THIS HOUSE! Wellp... after a full year of avoiding humans (like the plague), I have Covid. I’m ok aside from some difficulty breathing, a dry cough and some brain mushyness. If you need help, please be patient with me since I’m still pretty sick and we’re without childcare while we’re recovering AND trying to work still. Oh food… I miss tasting you! What a weird side effect!

Merchant License IDs: I’ve created all of the Merchant License IDs, but organizing/assigning/delivering them will take a little bit. Please be patient with me (and with each other) while I work on getting FE2 Merchants their Merchant License IDs. I will need you to finish your survey before I can assign you an ID.

Please review the Production Schedule for release dates: https://www.fatesend.net/production-schedule
During Production: I’ll provide an update every other week or so to remind backers to check their links for new files. Please make sure you’re following this project to receive Update notifications.

Thanks everyone!

And the Winners are...

The Gift of Play! 

Wow! We unlocked 16 games for the Gift of Gaming special stretch goal! Now is your chance to vote for your top 16 games for the kids at Primary Children’s Hospital! (Age range: Newborns -- 17 year olds!) Cast your Vote Here! (Survey will close on Thursday)! Thanks Mythos Games!    

Late Pledges

If you wanted to back this campaign but didn’t get a chance before the campaign ended, you can back it here! (IMPORTANT >>> Backers: DO NOT upgrade using this link, it won't include your initial pledge. Please wait for Surveys. We're aiming on releasing them next Friday.)

Coming up Next Week: After this campaign finishes funding, we'll be sending out the following to backers:

  • Surveys!
  • Discord link (Backers only!)
  • Facebook group links (you must include your backer email address and agree to the group rules.)
  • Crystal Tower
  • Cthulhu
  • Merchant-approved Concept art

Lastly, Merchant Licenses are coming, however, we need all of the Kickstarter data to finish transferring to BackerKit then we will need to match all FatesEnd1 Merchants with their pledge from this campaign, so it will take a bit to get those worked out before sending out new licenses. 

WE DID IT!!! Now, for some housekeeping...
about 1 month ago – Fri, Apr 02, 2021 at 04:33:28 PM

Phew! Man, I am TIRED, but we did it! Great job everyone!

I’m getting a billion questions from all the places, so I’ll try to answer the majority of them here as well:

1) My CC didn’t go through, what do I do? Click on the “Manage your pledge" button located at the top of the Project Page. On the next page, click “Update payment method” and from there, select “Add a new card” to update your payment information.

2) The campaign says that Unlocked Stretch Goals will be part of the next campaign, is that right? Nope, big typo on our part: LOCKED Stretch Goals will be included in the next campaign (after this one is delivered in full!) Sadly, it’s too late and once the campaign ended, we were locked out from editing the campaign.

3) What happens now? Kickstarter will give everyone 7 days to update their CC info, then 7 days after that, we fund! (around April 15th). After that point, I’ll start sending out Backer Surveys, Facebook Group links, Discord info, Merchant Licenses and Merchant-approved concept art. Merchants, until then, your license won’t be valid, so please, do not list anything for sale until then.

4) Can I still back this campaign? We will have a Late Pledge option after we fund, but until then, I don’t think you can, so just wait, you’ll be able to around April 15th! Be sure to follow the updates for more details!

5) Can I join the FB group now? I’m so sorry, we can’t add new backers to the Facebook groups until this campaign funds (usually 2 weeks after the campaign ends, around April 15th.) We will be sending out Facebook links to backers then.

6) What is the discord? We will send out the link after the campaign funds (around April 15th).

7) Who was the winner of Jellybean Contest? ZeroCool guessed $161,882! Holy Moly!! They were 46 Jelly Beans away!

Lastly, we unlocked a total of 16 games for our local Children’s Hospital! Thanks everyone! Giving the gift of fun to these kids is really the best thing! Thanks guys!
