Putting it in Perspective


Because this is my favorite thing to do.
Day 1 of the Alleyman's Tarot, we hit just over $89,000. By the end of day yesterday, we hit $116,000! Now, the Alleyman's ramped up day 2 and then day 3 was the biggest, with a single day earning of $102,000 and $106,000 each. While this does make our day one on this project the most successful day ever on any Publishing Goblin project, it's also clear we're slowing our momentum quite a bit today. But honestly? I'm so okay with that! You all showed up day 1 like a whirlwind and swept this campaign off its feet. I am so thankful for all of your support, and we're making an indelible mark on this brand new platform! We will definitely be the divination campaign to beat on Backerkit for years to come! : P

But did you know? There's lots of hidden money on this project! Because many people are waiting until the post-campaign to get their add-ons instead of raising their pledges now, that means we beat the best 3 days of funding on the Alleyman's Tarot even while not having all the money counted in just yet! AND we did it with a lower average price point for pledges! And that's pretty awesome.

What Now?


Please, if you're so moved, keep sharing this project! If you use this link below, it will let me keep track of how many people are brought in on this campaign by all of you amazing people, and that's just a fun thing to know so I can share it later! : P

In the meantime, I am planning a series of updates over the life of the campaign to share things!
  • The art of the remaining Lords.
  • The stone selection for the etched in stone tier.
  • The redesigned faces of the original set's dice.
  • The Community Copies and Community Funds.
  • The 22nd Die.
            What else would you like me to cover in updates? Some lore on the Lords, perhaps? Where they come from? Let me know!

What You All Came For


And yes, frolicking across the fields comes the wild and free Youth of Spring! Flowers and life, dance and... a remarkable codpiece, the Youth of Spring embodies newness, fertility, and the chance of new beginnings, paired with the inevitable naivete that comes with it! czarfunkle really kicked it out of the park yet again. They do not miss with these illustrations!

Oh my goodness I'm so excited. I'm definitely a bigger fan of oracle divination over tarot (the Alleyman's tarot was my exception to my rule no more tarot even if the art is amazing) so as soon as I saw you doing this project I had to support! Can we select add-ons yet? (if we can I must be looking in the wrong spots, help a fan out)

Backerkit doesn't have an add-on mechanic (yet?), but you can manually add the money for the add-ons you want (all listed on the main campaign page) to your total pledge amount! Seven has said that any additional funds can be allocated to whatever add-ons you want in the pledge manager after the campaign ends.

Is there going to be a book that makes it so these can be read alongside the tarot set, and when it's available the oracle set?

There is a book for the dice, and in the dice set there will be a page on each lord, which will have clarity on what the cards mean as well! : )

Is there an option to purchase these beautiful cards that are posted? I just love them.

Yes, they're the $10 add on, the Lord's Oracle! :)

When I pledged, there wasn’t any option, except $1. Will I be able to change that to an actual selection?

Kat, take a look again if you can. There are many more options than that! : )

If we unlock the 22nd dice will a place be made for it in the wooden case? And if so where will it be?

My apologies, I discovered the answer ... for anyone else wondering, it already has 22 places shown!! Count them. So I guess if we *don't* make the goal then it would go one down but that part I don't know.

Currently my plan is to offer guidance for reading with a standard 6 sided die in the book, so people can fill that final slot in their box with a standard die from a game or one they use for other things already. I'd still like to make that goal for the 22nd die though, so I'll work with backerkit to figure out how to get more eyes here! : )

Have you thought about how to combine oracle dice and Alleyman's tarot in readings? Are there any parallels between the dice and the deck? Looking forward to the dice redesign details.

I've actually done readings with the original set with tarot before, and it works really well. It's super great and indepth, so there will be guidance in the book for how to work with tarot into the readings!

This is an incredible project. I'd love to see what the new cover art for the manual will look like! Is there any chance you'd offer the wooden dice box without any logo engraving on it?

Ahh, the new manual is another fun one that is coming. czarfunkle wants to get some more lords done first before we have a vote on what lords might be visiting the goblin on the cover! I think we could do blank dice boxes, at least the top. MY logo on the bottom is a little point of pride since I designed them haha, but a few people have not been in love with having it splatted on the top, so I'd consider blanks. Alternative designs though I think would raise production costs. I'll talk to my people about it! : )

Love the stained-glass aesthetic from czarfunkle...an updated and free-spirited jester that also slightly reminds me of the best parts of Tingle (The Legend of Zelda), but will the full beard/moustache. I concur, Seven...their art is amazing!!
