I see that you're going to get some other stone dice from the manufacturer to show us (non-Goblin) examples (yay!), but can you let us know generally what sort of stones they will be? Like, are we talking pretty quartzes and sandstone and the like? Or more, um... rockish stones? The overly enthusiastic magpie that is my soul is very impatient and wants to start imagining the possibilities ASAP.

A little bit of each! I promise I will share the stone selection in the very near future!

Hello! I backed in the first 24 hours, but I'm now contemplating upping my pledge. Will that mess up the "when" I backed aspect? Also if we unlock the 22nd die, will the fancy wood box have a slot for it?

Seven answered in the first update (I had the same question! ^^;) "You can update your pledge at any time, it won't change the date you pledged or cheat you of the free 21-Lord Oracle." And if you look at it, the dice box already has 22 slots. ^.^

Oh, thank you! I can't believe I missed that! This is what I get for backing without reading all the details first... :D

Hii! I pledged the 140 tier in the first 24hrs to get a set for me and a set for my friend. Will I get one Lords deck or two? :)

It's one free Lord's deck per Backer

Okay, first time backing a campaign using Backer Kit for the campaign phase, so not sure how things will go... though considering Backer Kit is the best pledge manager, I'm hopeful it'll go better than the one time I backed a campaign on GameFound(I don't like their pledge manager, and I dislike their campaigns more)... My first question is whether the transition to the pledge manager phase will work similarly to when a campaign is done on Kickstarter and only uses Backer Kit's pledge manager. My second is whether a $1 pledge on a Backer Kit campaign automatically grants access to the pledge manager or if creators retain the option to only send the pledge manager to Backers above a certain level... and my third is how Backer Kit handles a card being declined at campaign's end... Is it a 7-day grace period like with Kickstarter and then the pledge is dropped or is it like when Backer Kit charges for pledge manager add-ons and it retries weekly(or whenever the creator issues a charge attempt) until it either goes through or the creator decides to cancel the order(either due to non-payment or the backer requesting the cancellation)? Just trying to figure out how much wiggle room I have to work with regarding when things are charged under ideal circumstances versus when I actually get paid.

Also, anyone know how to set display names on Backer Kit? Since it clearly isn't using the screen name exported from Kickstarter like it does in Backer Kit invites... Also, anyone else find it harder to talk about the various phases of a crowdfunding project when the same service is being used for phases that are so often performed with different services?

Hello, you can go to your profile top right corner of the screen to edit your display name. :)

My good friend, always happy to see you on another project! Yes, the transition to pledge manager will be similar to normal except with less of a jump, since we're already on that site. Yes, a $1 pledge will go to the manager like everyone elses. I don't know how Backerkit would handle dropped cards, we can ask, but I'd imagine it's the same as they do otherwise, where it retries once a week.

Will the Etched In Stone tier have an unique guidebook with the stone choices and explanations included?

Hi Zigo! They will not have a unique guidebook, they will have the same guidebook as a normal set, though I may change this if it seems like recognizing the dice is too hard! I'll give it a think.

Did I mess up my order? I pledged for the dice within the first 24 hours, so I would have gotten the free oracle deck, but I just changed my order today and selected the Oracle Cards Tier, thinking that meant I would get the dice plus two oracle decks (one free). But now I'm not sure that's what I've actually pledged for. Can you please help? Thank you so much!

Hello! If you change your tier, you change your tier entirely. You can't add a tier to your pledge. So if you want the dice, I'd stay on the tier you had. Then, check the Add-Ons section of the campaign page. It will explain to you how to add the extra $$ to your pledge to then claim an oracle deck or two after the campaign ends. If you pledged in the first 24 hours, you'll get a 21-Lord Oracle added to your cart automatically after the campaign, so you don't need to select it right now. Thanks!

This is likely already answered but I cannot find it. How do people put add-ons to their pledge?

No worries! You can check the campaign story itself, and go down to the Add-Ons section. A small paragraph at the start of that explains it! : )

Will the stretch goal dice also be stone for those of us that chose that tier?

Correct!

My question is about when we make it to the stretch goal for the 22nd dice. Does this also add a card to the lords deck and the 6 dice faces to the other deck?

Absolutely! : )

Could you tell us the size of the dice and if they are printed or engraved? Thanks!

16mm and engraved! : )
