See you in a few weeks with our regular month-end status update. Until then, smooth sailing!

September 2019 Update
27 days ago – Fri, Sep 27, 2019 at 01:47:09 AM

Avast, me hearties!

I'm trying to keep to a regular monthly schedule, sending out an update near the end of the month to let you know where Onyx Path is regarding the production of each book and Stretch Goal, as well as maintaining a list of what's delivered to backers and what's still pending so that we're all on the same page. But, more fun than my blathering, it's also a great time to check in with Eddy and the Realms of Pugmire to see what's going on with the property overall...

It's James, your Post-Campaign Concierge, Posting Updates.

Realms of Pugmire Update (September 2019)
Hey there, dogs and cats! It's been an exciting couple of months, so let's catch everyone up!

PIRATES STRETCH GOAL
The Pirates of Pugmire additional adventure is in final drafts! That means I've had a chance to redline it, giving the writer some suggestions and directions to make the adventure the best it can be. As I mentioned last month, the adventure is based in Dalmation Cove, slotting between the second and third adventures in Pirates of Pugmire. It's a totally optional adventure, but if players are looking for more to do, this will be a great option!

TRANSLATIONS
As was announced in Warlock Magazine, there will be a Japanese translation of Pugmire! It's being handled by our friends at Group SNE. Their main translator, Yuli Bethe, has been posting about it as well, and it looks really exciting! Another one of our translation partners might have some news to share soon as well...

But in the meantime, here's the status update for the announced Pugmire products from Onyx Path!

PROJECT STATUS
First Draft
Creating in the Realms of Pugmire (Realms of Pugmire)

August 2019 Update
about 2 months ago – Wed, Aug 28, 2019 at 04:02:56 PM

Avast, me hearties!

We're starting our regular routine for real! Now that surveys are in and a few of the initial digital rewards have been delivered, this will pretty much be the template going forward. A brief hello from me, maybe a message from Eddy, and then my summary for the campaign and reward delivery. Plus I'll sneak in a preview of what else is going on at the bottom.

So, let's dig in!

This is Post Campaign James, running the Pledge Manager.

Realms of Pugmire August 2019 Update by Eddy Webb
Hey there, dogs and cats! It's been an exciting couple of months, so let's catch everyone up!

PIRATES OFF TO LAYOUT
Big thanks to everyone who sent in playtest comments! I was able to wrap those up and get it to editing. A couple of weeks ago it came back from editing, I made a handful of additional changes, and now it's off to layout! It's going to dock in the harbor for a bit while the rest of the art rolls in, but we're ahead of schedule, so that isn't a concern right now.

STRETCH GOAL SAILING AHEAD
Meanwhile, I just got back the first draft of the stretch goal adventure! It's going to focus on Dalmation Cove, slotting between the second and third adventures in Pirates of Pugmire. It's a totally optional adventure, but if players are looking for more to do, this is a great option! It's being written by Josh Heath, who worked on "Adventures for Curious Cats," so this ship is in safe hands!

THE FUTURE OF PUGMIRE
As I mentioned back in the June update, I'm mulling over the next steps for Pugmire. To be clear, there are already a few projects in progress. One of them is the tentatively titled "Creating in the Realms of Pugmire." It's a combination of my thoughts about writing for Pugmire, some design advice, a little errata, and details on how Pugmire relates to the D&D 5e system. For folks who are thinking of contributing to Canis Minor, or Guides who just want their games of Pugmire and Mau to feel more "authentic," this will be a cool little resource to help out.

Further, I've been working with some eager companies on Pugmire translations! I'll hold off on details until the respective companies are ready to launch, but I'm excited to see how Pugmire looks in different languages.

Beyond that? I've pitched some more projects to Onyx Path, and I'm chatting with some other business partners as well. Keep a weather eye on the horizon for more news!

Realms of Pugmire Digital Reward Distribution
3 months ago – Wed, Jul 24, 2019 at 08:57:22 PM

Avast, me hearties!

I combined our regular month end update in last week's note about the Survey's going out,  but I didn't want to wait until next month to share this - a big digital reward from our list.

So, topics for today:

1. Digital Reward Distribution
2. Backerkit reminders

 
DIGITAL REWARD DISTRIBUTION 

Many of the rewards for our kickstarter projects take a lot of time and effort to complete. Usually, the kickstarter is a means of moving the project from an idea (even when it's a mostly-fully-written idea) into the actual channel that turns it into a project/product. It'll be a while before we're ready to talk about delivery on Pirates of Pugmire, and even longer for the project generated via Stretch Goals (the Interstitial Adventure).

That said, there are a few rewards that are available now, as they were mostly add-on bundles of existing products. And now, we can work on getting those out to you before the week ends.

 Realms of Pugmire Digital PDF Rewards Available :

    - Pugmire Core Rules PDF 

    - Monarchies of Mau Core Rules PDF 

   - "Treasure Chest" PDF Bundle, which includes: 

       1. Pan's Guide for New Pioneers PDF

       2. Roll of Good Dogs & Cats PDF 

       3. Secret of Vinsen's Tomb PDF

       4. Pugmire Guide Screen PDF

       5. Monarchies of Mau Guide Screen PDF

       6. Pugmire and Monarchies of Mau Digital Wallpapers

 

REWARD DISTRIBUTION  

Your link to claim these digital rewards will be sent out by our BackerKit pledge manager over the next day. Since we are using our partners at DriveThruRPG as the host for this, you will need to set up a DriveThru account if you don't have one already. If you encounter any problems with downloading your rewards, please contact DTRPG's customer service to resolve the matter, they've always been top-rated for customer service. http://www.drivethrurpg.com/contact_us.ph

Again, you will receive an e-mail from BackerKit with links for these rewards over the next 24 hours if any of them are on your expected list of rewards. I'll be releasing them in waves, so don't panic if you only see a single link at first... the rest are coming. 

The easiest way to see if you've got digital downloads available is to login to your backerkit account: https://pirates-of-pugmire.backerkit.com/backer/digital_rewards and it'll show anything available. Your backerkit account should also confirm all rewards that you should expect from your reward tier selected.


If you need to review your information or pledge status, you can return to your survey by clicking the link in your survey email or requesting your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our BackerKit project page at https://pirates-of-pugmire.backerkit.com/

If you used your Facebook credentials to log in to your Kickstarter account, the BackerKit survey is sent to the email address you use for your Facebook account. If you have another email address that you prefer to use, please contact support at  https://pirates-of-pugmire.backerkit.com/faq 

If you had added on one of these existing Realms of Pugmire titles or bundles, but haven't yet completed your survey - remember to confirm your Add Ons in BackerKit. There's more info in our earlier Survey post <here>

If you have any other questions or concerns, you can post them to the comments for this update, the comment section, or contact the team via the Contact Creator link on the kickstarter page and Rich will forward it to me.

You'll hear from me again next month with our regular month-end status update.

Surveys Going Out This Week!
3 months ago – Wed, Jul 17, 2019 at 05:49:13 PM

Ahoy, me hearties!

It's been a bit quiet since the end of the campaign, but that was all about getting ready for the next leg of our journey ... and here we are! 

It's Cap'n James, your point person for this campaign.
It's Cap'n James, your point person for this campaign.

BACKER SURVEYS  

Over the next few days, you’ll receive an email from us with a special link to your BackerKit survey. It’s important to respond to your survey as quickly as you can since we need this information to fulfill your rewards.  


You don’t need to create a BackerKit account to fill out your survey. When you receive the email with the survey, click the survey link to respond. Answer the questions about your reward preferences, provide shipping information, and purchase add-on items if you like. You don’t have access to this survey link yet, but it will be available soon via email!  

After you respond to your survey, you can go back later and change your responses at any time before we close the surveys and get our final counts.

If you need to review your information or pledge status, you can return to your survey by clicking the link in your survey email or requesting your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our BackerKit project page at https://pirates-of-pugmire.backerkit.com/

If you used your Facebook credentials to log in to your Kickstarter account, the BackerKit survey is sent to the email address you use for your Facebook account. If you have another email address that you prefer to use, please contact support at  https://pirates-of-pugmire.backerkit.com/faq 

If you have any other questions or concerns, you can post them to the comments for this update, the comment section, or contact the team via the Contact Creator link on the kickstarter page and Rich will forward it to me.

Once we've got a fair response to our survey and collected a reasonable amount of info, I'll be working on fulfilling rewards that are available now - like the PDFs of the titles included in the Treasure Chest bundles, as well as the Pugmire and Mau core rulebook PDFs.  

MONTH END SUMMARY UPDATE

We're about to start getting into the regular rhythm of month-end status updates. It's a pretty involved and dynamic process, creating these books, so I want to ensure that I have constant and consistent communication with all backers. Each month, I'll be providing a status update for our rewards (usually nothing more complicated than "delivered" or "pending"), as well as sharing information about this project and other Onyx Path projects where possible. 

Many of these updates will be similar - these projects take a fair amount of time to build, and some stages are multi-part processes, so a book in "Development" may not show incremental updates in our monthly summary, but there's always forward progress being made.
