Will the Shadows Tarot Deck be available as an add-on for this Kickstarter campaign?

Not for this one, but for the Dearg Volume 2 one, planned for 2017. You will then be able to add one or more decks to your pledge.

I have pledged for the “Tri-Kazelian” tier, which includes all the Stretch Goals. Does that get me the printed version of the 20 game aids unlocked with the 60K Stretch Goal?

It actually doesn’t, and we’re sorry about the confusion. The 60K Stretch Goal unlocks the creation and production of 20 additional game aids. It’s a lot of work to design, write, translate, and lay out game aids (which can be a scenario’s summary, a chronology, or a cheat sheet of possible clues in the case of an investigation-based adventure). Depending on your reward tier, you will get either the digital or physical version of these game aids: Tri-Kazelians, High Tri-Kazelians, and Varigals get the PDF version, while Farl Collectors, High Farl Collectors, High Varigals, and Varigal Masters get the printed version.

If you are a Tri-Kazelian, High Tri-Kazelian, or Varigal, and want printed version of the 50 game aids, including those unlocked by the 60K Stretch goal, you can get all of them as an add-on for $25.

Will the RED BOX be available as an add-on?

Sorry, but this box is meant to be an exclusive that only comes with the Limited Edition of the book. However, we are considering including another brand new box as an add-on, similar to the FEARIL BLUE BOX, which will be available to all backers.

If I pay for the option to get Dearg Volume 2, what will I get exactly? Does this guarantee me the Stretch Goals unlocked in the course of the Kickstarter campaign for Volume 2?

You will get a copy of Dearg Volume 2, whose Edition will depend on your reward tier: Standard for Tri-Kazelian, Varigal, and High Varigal ; KS Special for High Tri-Kazelian and Varigal Master, and Limited for Farl Collector and High Farl Collector. And yes, if you preorder Volume 2 right now, you will indeed receive all the Stretch Goals unlocked during the associated Kickstarter campaign to come.

If I have pledged for Volumes 1 & 2 on the present Kickstarter, will I still be able to participate to the Kickstarter for Volume 2, in case I want to get add-ons, for example?

Yes, we will make it possible, for example by including a $1 tier specially for backers of the Volume 1 Kickstarter. This way, you will be able to see the updates and get add-ons.

If we pledge for a tier that includes physical copies of the core books (Varigal, High Varigal, and Varigal Master), will we have to wait until July to get them or will you send the available books right away?

We have indeed thought about including the possibility of you getting already-existing books as a sort of pre-delivery option. We are considering doing so through Backerkit, which should let us handle this double delivery easily. Extra shipping fees would apply. We will do whatever we can to make it possible, and let you know once the Kickstarter proper has ended.

Shipping Updates No shipping updates are provided.
BackerKit FAQ

What is BackerKit?

BackerKit is a service that crowdfunded project creators use to keep track of hundreds to tens of thousands of backers—from shipping details, pledge levels, preferences and quantities, whether they have paid or had their card declined, special notes, and everything in between!

The BackerKit software and support team is independent from the campaign’s project team—BackerKit does not handle the actual reward shipping. For more information about the preparation or delivery status of your rewards, please check the project's updates page.

How does BackerKit work?

After the campaign ends, the project creator will send you an email with a unique link to your survey. You can check out a walkthrough of the process here.

How do I update my shipping address?

BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the project is locked down for shipping. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.

I completed the survey, but haven't received my rewards yet. When will they arrive?

As BackerKit does not actually handle any rewards or shipping, the best way to stay updated on the shipping timeline would be to check out the project's updates page.

Why can’t I log into my account?

Request a login link to your survey by entering your email here:
https://shadows-of-esteren-dearg.backerkit.com/

BackerKit will send you an automated email with an invite link to whatever email you pledged with.

I never received my invitation. How do I complete the survey?

The most common reasons for not receiving a survey email is that you may be checking an email inbox different from the email address you used to sign up with Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account, or it may be caught in your spam filter.

Confirm that the email address you are searching matches the email address tied to your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Tilt Pro account. If that doesn’t work, then try checking your spam, junk or promotions folders. You can also search for "backerkit” in your inbox.

To resend the survey to yourself, visit the project page and input the email address associated with your Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account.

When will my pledge will be shipped, charged or locked down?

That is handled directly by the project creator. BackerKit functions independently of the project itself, so we do not have control of their physical shipping timeline. If you want to check on the project’s status, we recommend reading over the project's updates page.

Can I upgrade or get multiple copies of my pledge?

This depends on the project creator’s decision. If you are unable to see the ‘Want to switch your pledge level?’ after clicking on your pledge amount under “Pledge Level” in your survey, then the project creator would prefer people not to switch pledge levels.
