Chops all Frog God hard copies come with PDF, is that what you mean?

Now I'm wondering about adding for another hard cover, to have it in my playing fifth edition but also the original PF.... Hmm

I've cast a binding and impossible to ignore summons on Vaughan, so hopefully he'll come along and answer that Mythraine. I'm not sure right now what the guide will exactly have from what I've provided.

Thanks Rich,

Were you able to get an answer from Greg? I'd love to get the system-neutral info as well but not sure if it's included in the Blight Player's Handbook.

I've chased him again Mythraine, thanks for your patience, I'll get you an answer today as soon as I can....

Oh no. There's a possibility that Richard's signature will be inserted in these books.

You know what that looks like?

Today I prepared explosive runes.

Hey Mythraine, I helped as a developer on this...the Blight Player's Handbook does not contain all the material in the Blight Player's Guide. One is a rules book and one is a flavor book (ie. a gazetteer type of thing).

Can someone tell me, if my pledge has two versions of the book (like leatherbound + regular or steel book + regular) can I get each copy for a different game system?

Yes this is correct. What you can't do now is mix and match Print and PDF. When 5E was PDF only they were happy for you to get print PF (for ex) and PDF 5E. Not so anymore, so if you want differin PDF to your print either add the money or buy another print ;)

My final revised order ... is probably going to be delivered to my house in a box the size of a large microwave oven. I already feel sorry for the delivery person who has to schlep it up to my doorstep.

So, congratulations are in order, I'd say. To Mr. Pett and the FGG crew for sure for yet another successful kickstarter. And naturally to all of us for getting our hands at another unholy piece of work from Mr. Pett's genius (and may I say slightly deranged?) mind.

Can't wait to get my hands on this thing.

I'm really glad you got that one in Mythraine, I was mithered that I couldn't get you an answer and glad we did, so huzzah and welcome.

Contributor

and thank you everyone for your wonderful encouragement and support, I'm overwhelmed with the total.

Plus, we'll be back, heh heh.

Chuck, how did you get hold of my signature, that's troubling, people might think...nah, never mind.

My most heartfelt congratulations to Mr Pett, FGG crew and all the Backers that worked so hard to make this a reality. It could not have happened without your support and consistent posting of comments on the various forums.*

Congratulations to ol' Blighty... and heartfelt commiserations to all of us as we'll play witness to her birthing.

Now that the funding is done, now begins the long cold night before dawning twilight throws light upon her beauty... can't wait!

Nice one! I'm sure the efforts that you put in on here and others sites (esp) made a big difference. Hopefully there is some new FGG supporters birthed in the KS, along with the horror that will crawl forth soon!

Steve. Yes.

cycnet, I had to drop back to the HC book and no add-ons yet. I will add in the rest of the add-ons once the Backerkit survey comes out.

Here's a suggestion, just add the add-ons that are exclusive to the KS and add the ones that show a retail cost either when the Backerkit surveys come out or as you can afford them. That's pretty much what I have done in the past.

I did add some extra for add ons, mostly to support stretch goals also figuring that I have the cash now... and if it is tight later I can redirect that money to shipping so it gives me options.

At the current time I am pretty stoked to go for the deluxe card set I think that they will come in handy for sure.

I am also going to hopefully get a gulf of Akados poster map since it's just too silly to buy that alone with the shipping.

TBH if I can fit a bunch of books in the Blight box without substantially upping my shipping I am going to try my hardest to find the cash for them because paying 60-100 in shipping (with exchange rate) every time makes expensive books even crazier...

My credit card randomly decided the exchange rate is .50 on the dollar rather than .70 so that made me cry... oh well too late now lol... next time I'll do it through my virtual visa debit card instead... I don't think they make up absurd exchange rates.


I figured what I would need for the add-ons and have it set aside. O was disappointed that I had to reduce my pledge, but am glad the stretch goals got made.

As for the exchange rate how else is the credit card company going to make bunches of money unless they short change you on the exchange rate?


Not entirely sure how long it will stay up, but under the "Campaign" part of this Kickstarter, if you were to go under the "Lost Lore Series" heading, there seems to be a free Town of Glory there. ;)

On March 1, 2005 Greg Vaughan wrote on the Paizo messageboards:

"As to "The Styes", maybe a Backdrop article with lots of descriptions, NPCs, and adventure hooks. There's a whole lot to be developed about just exactly what is lurking down among the pilings?"


Any ideas as to what's going on with this? On January 30th, it was expressed by FGG that a backer kit would be out to the supporters within the week. It's now a month later, and there's been no backer kit or additional word by anyone official as to what's going on . . . I've posted on the kickstarter page, as well as on the FGG Forums kickstarer thread for this, and all has been ignored.

This was my first kickstarter backing, so I'm not as up-to-snuff on how these things usually go. Is this normal? Thus far, I'll admit to not being impressed at all with the process if it is, especially since it was stated repeatedly that FGG had a proven record when it came to handling kickstarters.

I got involved in this one because I'm a massive fan of Richard Pett's stuff. However, this is giving me serious doubts as to whether I wish to get involved with another one in the future. A month without word at all just doesn't strike me as decent customer service, especially when the money has already been deducted from my account.

But, I digress . . . or something . . .

My guess is that things have been busy with delivering the Borderlands and Northlands Kickstarters, plus Viking Frog recently finished his own Kickstarter. There really isn't a rush to get to the BackerKit as it isn't really delaying things.


At the same time FGG is working on getting the Backerkit out for The Blight the shipments from The Northlands Saga Complete and Borderlands Provinces KS have arrived and are being shipped out.

So I would guess they are a little bit swamped right now. And no this is an unusual situation. They rarely run three KS back-to-back.

Just my 2 cp.


When the backerkit goes out is not what's really important its when the books arrive on your doorstep that counts the backerkits usually take a month or two anyhow so no worries and I'm expecting my northlands saga and borderlands any day now and am not to worried about backerkit for the blight as long as they send it out before shipment day that's all that matters.

That may be but it doesn't preclude them from giving us updates. A Quick, "Hey guys, there has been a delay in getting out the BackerKits due to..." goes a long way. When you say "BackerKit will be out in 2 weeks", and a month later there has been zero communication, it doesn't inspire a lot of confidence.


Folks, the anticipated delivery date says "JULY". Why would a backer kit go out now? (Yes, I know they said there would be one, but why bother so early?)

There's no need for any communication until, you know, JULY!

What the hell is there to communicate before then?


DaveMage, when someone states they will do something in 2 weeks, I hold them accountable to that. Communication of "Hey, we're running a little long on that estimated 2 weeks" doesn't take much effort. Communication of progress on a project is vital. I'm a project manager. If I don't communicate with my clients and backers on a regular basis, I start getting phone calls in the middle of the night...

And please, there is no need for the hostility in your post.

I guess people are free to decide for themselves what will determine their confidence in this particular project. For me, it's the FGG track record of successful delivery for 8 projects with a 9th (Northlands) to finish shipping within the next 2 weeks. That, and the project mention that the Blight itself has already been written by Richard Pett before the campaign even started. This gives me full confidence in this campaign.

I have seen other KS campaigns rush out BackerKits to meet deadlines with missing items, items priced wrong, and other item description errors, which led to a big mess with people locking in and realizing that they forgot missing items, or underpaid for items, etc., and forcing the project team to unlock accounts, refund money, and so forth. I'd rather they take their time and make sure the BK is good to go, as there really isn't an urgency to have this open in early March.

Swords and Wizardry Lead Developer, Frog God Games

No worries, everyone. Programming the BackerKit is something that's easy to screw up, so we do it carefully -- and we have been too crazy busy with fulfilling the other Kickstarters to be comfortable with what we've got programmed into BackerKit for the Blight so far*. That said, we're behind our planned schedule on the BackerKit, I believe, so it's a valid point and we apologize if it causes a problem for anyone.

For those who are first-time backers of a Kickstarter, please be aware that delays with BackerKit are administrative, and don't have anything to do with actual production of the books, which is proceeding apace. As noted above, the books are already written, etc.

*BackerKit requires us to physically input what becomes an integrated system of products, postage, and discounts. It's like an interactive spreadsheet from the creation side. Just the typing and button-pushing takes a while, and then it requires us to troubleshoot each pledge level to make sure the backer sees all the appropriate add-ons with any applicable discounts. If we forget to include an add-on in the system, it can cause us to face larger postage costs, and we end up having to tell people to go back in and add the add-on into their orders. Some people obviously never get/read that message, which leads to people not getting the right combination of products. It's an extremely useful system, and works better than trying to do it by hand, but it's still vulnerable to human error, so we try to be very careful with it as a tool.


Thank you, Mr. Finch!

My apologies if I sounded cross earlier. It tends to make me nervous when I hear a report that says one thing, then don't hear anything else for a month after, if only because of the issues with other kickstarters I've seen reported on these forums alone (The Razor Coast by Logue and Underdark Kingmaker AP by the group I can't recall the name of now come to mind). Nothing but exemplary reports have come out about FGG, but for a first-timer like me all this is new, so silence becomes a concern.

The update and explanation is greatly appreciated.

I have backed many, many kickstarters. All of the FGG ones, and many others. What I like about FGG is that they do not do the kickstarter and then start writing the project. FGG always have the project done, or mostly done and use the kickstarter to get money to have the books printed and shipped. They have been amazing with all of the kickstarters they have done.

Also, I have met and talked to Bill a few times, and Greg and Skeeter once. They are great people all of them with obvious integrity.

One of my first kickstarters (several years ago now) still has not been completed, and it has been so long I really don't care anymore. And the project was really a very small monster book. Another is at least a year or so behind with little communication from the company.

None of this is a problem with FGG. I trust them completely and do not worry about something running a bit late. They do very well with their kickstarters and of course their projects. They are my favorite company these days. The only campaign I am currently running is a lost lands campaign. I am very happy about that.

Just to confirm davrion is absolutely correct, all 550,000 or so words of the Blight, and the Crucible are already complete. Some of the very early passages of the text (not many I hasten to add) will need knocking into shape and Frog Gods have several folks going mad checking stuff now. It's a pretty big task as they also have to get used to Queen's English (huzzah!) I've absolute total trust of the company and the wonderful people who work for it and wouldn't have trusted them with my vile work if I had the merest doubt of anything going wrong. We're working on some of the stretch goals now so they can all come together at the right time and bring the Blight slithering and blinking into the twilight.

I've started working up some drafts for a potential adventure set and will be getting that over to them in time for the publishing of the Blight, which I'm desperate to see happen soon. My bloated baby needs time to be soothed out of the attic, but I can't wait to share her.

You are wonderful folks.

Huzzah!

Having read much of your work, I'm going to predict upwards of 400,000 are adjectives. <Grin>


I am kind of disappointed I missed this :( I'll just wait for it to be all finished.


There were postings about this KS here, on Enworld, and Facebook. I am not sure where else, but it seemed there was enough word spread.


Well I don't really use Facebook and I'll have to google Enworld - but I took a break from really doing much forum stuff to keep my sanity for a bit and well it is what it is.

I'm not accusing anyone really - just sad that I missed it is all - I can still look forward to it once it releases.

I do not read much of the forums anymore, but I always read the third party forum in case I miss something from the Frogs.


They have a mailing list that you can subscribe to via their website. You'll hear about any kickstarters of theirs and you also get the occassional 25 or 30% off 1 day sale voucher. Which is cool :) Plus deal-of-the-day offerings, which occur much more sporadically than of-the-day ;)

[edit]Actually on Black Friday they even did 40% off if I recall correctly. I got a lot of stuff that day![/edit]

I know it is difficult to wait, but the nightmares that Richard and the other contributors have designed will soon delightfully haunt your dreams. Any that are attending PaizoCon, I will be running an intro adventure to The Blight on Sat and Sun. Now, I must return to taking medication I need to deal with these disturbing visions I have now when I close my eyes at night.


I've got my backerkit invitation and it seems to be missing some add-ons. Everyone else?


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Maps, Pathfinder Accessories, Starfinder Accessories, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Maps, Starfinder Society Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Mine seems okay. Which addons are missing?

My problem is that I wanted to mix-and-match my two pledged copies (I wanted the leather for S&W and the regular version for 5E) which I was told would be allowed. However, it doesn't seem to give me that granularity.

Did I misunderstand?


I think you should be able to do that, but I can't remember. There were lots of discussions around that!

But I cannot see:
$80,000 Horror in the Sinks (add $10 softcover/$4 PDF) UNLOCKED
$82,000 The Blight Player's Handbook (add $16 softcover/$7 PDF) UNLOCKED - (available in PATHFINDER ONLY)
$84,000 The Crooked Nail (add $10 softcover/$4 PDF) UNLOCKED
$88,000 The Children of the Harvest (add $10 softcover/$4 PDF) UNLOCKED
$90,000 The Tome of Blighted Horrors (add $12 softcover/$5 PDF) UNLOCKED
or any of
$103,000 - The Blight: Pathologies (add $3 PDF each) - (available in Pathfinder, 5e, and Swords & Wizardry versions)

???


Yes it would appear none of the stretchgoals have appeared on the backerkit for some reason. There are a few comments so I'm sure they will fix it. I'm not doing anything until I here as I wanted the map folio and don't want to miss out.
