Did you get your minis yet? I received an email that Zo! was on his way but the package weight listed indicates that is the only mini even though I added my pledge list in the comments and as an additional email.

I got the same, your order has shipped, email too. I checked the assigned tracking number and it looks like it’s shipping from Poland. If ND was handling all USA shipments, what does that mean?
Actually based on the Game on Table Top page I think I only added the Blue Dragon which was not part of the Kickstarter.
I searched my past emails for the list of my pledge. Under an email from Game on Table Top dated 12/23/17, they sent me a list of everything I got in my pledge. Sad now to think that it’s been nearly two years just to get to this point.
I just ordered Zo! on the Archon Studios site. So the mini is $10 USD, not bad, however $13 shipping is not good. But, if as an All In Pledge, they ship me everything they have up to this point at no additional cost, then I'm ok with that.
This could all be true but I also meant it from the standpoint that it was a bold move by them since they had to assume several attendees who pledged these minis would stop and vent their spleen on them
So based on the timeline, it sounds like those of us who went all in will be waiting years for total fulfillment. The bonus minis are a nice deal but am I missing something? Also, the update said Archon would be fulfilling EU backers only. Does this mean those of us in the U.S. will be still dealing with ND?
So I looked at the Paizo online store and saw all of the Starfinder minis, available for sale like people are saying. My question is, and I don't know the intricacies of how all of the business end of it works, if ND was contracted by Paizo to make minis for them, and ND created this Kickstarter, where is the disconnect? Wouldn't Paizo have provided funding for ND to make their online minis, and wouldn't the money ND took for the Kickstarter have gone to what we ordered in our pledges?
Or, is it that ND is honoring the Paizo minis first and do not have the capability to produce for both groups...or is it that ND repurposed our Kickstarter money for other projects and blew us off? I am now confused and even more upset by the fact that it seems like most of the line is on sale online and we sit almost empty handed except for the few of us who received token minis?
I wish I knew the full outline of what was supposed to happen in the production and releases of both sets of minis. Not the gory details, but we are all owed an explanation however unpleasant it may be.
I'm not saying that they are Summersnow, however, it was a perceived perception that they did this too many times and it caught up to them, leaving us as well as Paizo victims of this practice. It will definitely give me pause now if I ever do another Kickstarter to do more research first. Spending the money is not too horrible if what I get in return has value, but this hurt and what makes it worse is not having answers, or at least answers that are acceptable. Of course, I may not want to know the answers which might make me more mad.
and that's the other victim because of ND, Starfinder itself. This turned a lot of people off of it because of what they did. I also heard that ND would take the money from one KS pledge to finish up the previous pledge like some gamer Ponzi scheme.

They were actually at Gencon this past year. I spoke to several people there about the Kickstarter and even met Scott, the guy handling it all. He seemed like he had a bad attitude and couldn't be bothered. I should have known something was up then, but I had backed several other KS projects, CMON, boardgametables, Munchkin, and all were successful.
I too went all in. I received two small packages, probably the 1st & 2nd waves. Now I am worried that $400 is bye bye. Paypal nor Kickstarter will even condsider refunds since it goes beyond their timelines to report violations. I am hopeful that Paizo can remedy this, it would be a shame to tarnish the work that went into Starfinder from Ninja Division.
Thanks Elcoderdude. I figured healing would be essential in WotR. I wish the Paladin deck would be out at Gencon so I could use that but they said that it wouldn't be out until after.
So I am signed up for Pathfinder Adventure Card Guild play at Gencon, this is my first time playing in the Guild. I signed up for Season 1, Adventure 1; Season 1, Adventure 2; Season 1, Adventure 3.
So I am new to the Adventure Card Game and I have questions that the rules didn't seem to answer and that I couldn't find watching youtube video demos.
1) When you are placing random monsters or barriers or other card types in locations during setup, can they be elite or should everything start out basic at 1st level?
2) During a combat where the monster card says must be defeated by magic, and you have none, does that mean that you automatically take damage, less your defense, if any?
3) I'm unclear of how to take damage when the monster or encountered card says take 2d4 damage. Is this in addition to the normal damage, can you reduce the damage with additional defensive cards you have in play? It seems like this extra damage could wipe out a 1st or low level character in one hit.
