Publishing Goblin's Oracle Dice, 2nd Edition

And we're done!! | What Happens Next?

We did it!!

$213,914 in funds!
3,321 backers!


For all my projects, I've always had a slowly growing trajectory.

449 backers on the original Normal Tarot campaign.
658 backers on the original Oracle Dice campaign.
1,674 backers on the Normal Tarot Silver and Gold campaign.
(19,275 on the Alleyman's)
and now 3,321 on this campaign.  The funds do something very similar!



The Alleyman's Tarot was a huge outlier, clearly, but my more typical projects have always had a lovely upward trajectory, and that's amazing. Thank you for joining me on this journey. I literally and matter of factly could not have done any of this without all of you, and I can't wait to show you all what I have planned for the Year of the Goblin next year. 

Pledge Manager Tomorrow

But first, we have to wrap this up and get dice in all of your amazing hands. For now though, sit pretty. Tomorrow, we'll make the move over to the pledge manager portion of this journey, where you'll all be able to grab up all the add-ons your hearts desire to add to your order. Please hang tight until I post a new update announcing the move to the pledge manager. 


Stretch Goals, Prints, and the Reading Journals!

During those two weeks, any add-ons people throw on, or pre-orders we get in, will count towards our stretch goals. Because of this, I am very confident we will unlock the reading journal and the rest of the art prints. Knowing that those items will also help bring money in themselves to reach those goals, I am unlocking those items now to go in the pledge manager! This means the Reading Journal is now officially 'unlocked', and the art print set will indeed feature all 22 Lords!

22 Lords?

You heard me right! There will be 22 dice, one way or another. If we're heading to the 300,000 goal once add-ons and pre-orders open, we will still design the final die as a community. But if we don't hit that goal, no sweat. I replaced the Fate die from the original edition in this set-- now it belongs to the Gambler and it's a proper die with themes and symbolism. But the original Fate Die, which used to do things like shift dice around, remove dice from readings, or force re-rolls, will return as the Chaos Die if we don't hit the last stretch goal, with a few small tweaks. There will be 22 dice no matter what!

Fulfillment Timeline

Looks to me like we're at the 200,000 timeline, so we are intending to ship in or by November. It takes 2 weeks to get funds on Kickstarter, so I'm assuming I have those two weeks to finish up final print files for manufacturers. Start of August, production begins, and lasts a good month to a month and a half. Mid September items are gathered with the fulfillment partner, packaged up, and by mid November items should be in some people's hands or at the very least, on the way before the end of the month.

This is a much smaller campaign so far with far fewer items and backers than the Alleymans Tarot. I see no reason we should have much in the way of delays due to amount being manufactured or anything like that. But as always, I'll keep you all posted as things change.

Talk again very soon! And congrats to us!

Question: My pledge didn’t go through because my CCV on my card changed. Am I still considered a first 24hr backer since I did pledge during the timeframe? I updated my card and the charge went through today. Hopefully I still get the Oracle deck. I’m so excited for these!

what counts is the time you pledged, not when your charge went through :)

Did I miss something? I got the email with this message two days ago but I’ve not gotten the follow up message that was supposed to come out the next day? So am I not able to do add ons?

There also hasn't been another update from Seven announcing it; I'm guessing the pledge manager isn't ready to go live yet, for whatever reason - maybe because Backerkit needs to process all the pledges first and whatnot and hasn't had time yet?

They mentioned in Discord that actually it might take longer for pledge manager (up to 2 weeks), sounds like since it's a brand new platform it was just a minor teething issue with knowing when it will be ready. They'll still post another update when it's ready so you can be sure not to miss it. Maybe another one prior too but my guess is they are waiting because they don't want to post one saying it's not ready then have Backerkit say it's ready the next day.

I didn't get an email about adding anything to my pledge. I wanted to add some things. I got an email saying that they charged my original pledge. Will we be getting something to add on if we want to?

Yes. Usually, about 2 weeks after a campaign, a survey will be sent to you where you pick your items etc.

TFW you remembered that you're wanting to add a deck onto your pledge a literal split-second before you see the mail that We're Done :-D -- welp, that's what the add-ons are all about I suppose. Congratulations Seven and allied creators!

Me too. I upped my pledge to get the stone dice but it’s not clear how to do that. I didn’t want to change my pledge bc I backed in the first 24 hours.

The survey hasn't gone out yet, don't worry! You'll see it soon and 7 will post a new update once its out so you know. Also there should be plenty of time to fill it in, make changes etc.

Woke up this morning and the charge has not gone through, hopefully there wasn't a glitch and I'm still on as a first 24 hour backer!! Also I'm excited to add on the reading journal and possibly the art prints, I had already upped my pledge to get the coin and the deck. So much yay!!

My charge finally went through, now just waiting for the pledge manager link to choose options.

Soooo, have we considered…..happy squirrel being the lord for the chaos die?! 😬😍 we get our chaotic buddy moving dice trying to be helpful, and they’re the perfect characterization for chaos 😂 a few people mentioned the happy squirrel die being our 22nd when the campaign started….I think fate (😬) is intervening

Please NO Happy Squirrel!!!! I don't like that idea and think it's terrible, it would totally ruin the set. Anything but THAT!!!

The only happy squirrel that I have really liked is the vampire squirrel in the SEAMS Tarot, so I would also prefer no squirrel. A cat or raccoon would be fine with me, however.

Yesssssss. I'm at least happy for the return of the "Chaos Dice" as a possibility. I still HOPE for a brand new 22nd dice, but there is still a gimmicky part of me that would love nothing more than to see the "Chaos" dice reforged into something more meaningful. Because yeah, it may seem gimmicky to 'take away' or remove die... But ultimately? That could also make for interesting facts of the readings too, I feel. Maybe not everyone sees it that way, but to me, I still see it -as- something worth keeping.

I am going to add on the reading journal in the pledge manager. Was really hoping for this one.

For those that got in within the first 24hrs, if we increase how many we got do we get the rewards for the first 24 hour bonus. Same question for vendors, if we were in do we get 1 set for each set we had ordered

I have this question too, I would like to shuffle my free set of lord cards into my alleyman deck and also get another one to use with the dice deck.
