I have sent out a survey link for the BackerKit pledge manager site. When you receive the survey, click the link to respond. Pick your reward preferences, provide shipping information, and (of course) purchase as many add-ons as you like. 

One more Stretch Goal. The Kickstarter closed before we were able to reach the $17.5k Stretch Goal and unlock the leather-bound cover for War Mage Diary. If together we raise $2500 or more in add-ons, I will unlock this Stretch Goal! It looks like we are 20% of the way there already!

Surveys close on August 19. To review or change your information, click the link in your survey email. 

Don’t wait! Take care of your survey this weekend before you get distracted.

Thank you for bringing magic to Perdition!

Cory

P.S. Be sure to share the Preorder Store with your friends too. They all count toward the leather-bound Stretch Goal too!

LUCKY 13!

Last night we pushed past the $13k threshold! Backers of War Mage Diary have unlocked $24 in FREE rewards.

Mystic Dice. Unlocked.

Iron Golem. Unlocked.

And NOW, the Manticore. UNLOCKED!

Also SAVE on the Unreal Beasts set! This set includes the free Manticore so I’ve lowered the cost to $34 for the eight minis with a pledge for War Mage Diary. 

Sit your Elf astride the stag-like Peyton, mount raptors and gryphons, and don’t underestimate the feisty war pony! The mysterious Green Man heals, the coatl constricts, and the star of the set is the awesome Dragon Rider. Please, consider adding these on to your pledge to take advantage of this great deal!


The project funds in 13 hours…but we’re far from done!

Two key Stretch Goals are near. Consider adding those Unreal Beasts to your pledge because at $15k we unlock the PDF copy of War Mage Diary. And at $17.5k we make War Mage Diary leather-bound! Check in this evening and let’s see how how far we can go before 11 PM central time!

Closing In On The End. And the Next Stretch Goal!
over 1 year ago – Sat, May 11, 2019 at 11:39:05 AM

I can work endless hours on storytelling, art, and design without pause. But, running a Kickstarter is exhausting. It’s the actual marketing that comes harder to me. Yet, I’m still sad to see we’re down to the last 30 hours or so because it’s worth all the extra effort to share my work and connect with hundreds of new folks daily here.

We’re very near to another Stretch Goal! If we reach $13,000 in funding, War Mage Diary backers will add the $7 Manticore figure to their haul that already includes the $12 Mystic Dice and the $5 Iron Golem. This will also lower the price on the Unreal Beasts miniature set to just $34.


I’ll let you in on a secret. The Unreal Beasts section of War Mage Diary is still evolving! When I sit down to write, the vast background lore of Perdition goes to work. I think about the exotic creatures I want to add like manticores to command and dragons to ride. I balance these dreams with the cost, the power, and the fairness within the game system. And then as write, I also make connections to characters you’ve already met and improve on both existing and unreleased adventures. It’s almost magic how serendipitously the process works. And where I end up is always better than I originally imagined.

The marketing portion of our journey is wrapping up. And the best is yet to come for all of us!
