You should have received our backer survey! Message me if you did not or email [email protected] (just be sure to check your spam first).
Also, if you saw that you should have the PDF for Anansi's Journal of Common Places in your pledge, and it wasn't there - that should be fixed now. We just had a minor SKU mix up. Thank you to the couple of folks who pointed it out!
Let us know if you have questions or if I can help in any way!
Backer survey smoke test sent, and what should we name the app?

Just sent surveys to 5% of backers from each pledge level.
This allows us to test out the surveys and pledge manager and ensure everything is clear and working smoothly! If you get the survey form Backerkit, please reply ASAP. We need a certain number of responses before we send out all of the survey.
We're trying out different names for the NPC Voices App
So it isn't Quite so generic (and in case we decide to add, i don't know... locations and magic items with VO descriptions?)
Here are some names we're toying around with:
It would be great to get your opinion! Comment below or head over to the Twitter poll.
So, if you have friends, family, enemies who missed the original campaign, let them know they now have another chance to back it! We'll have the pledge levels listed as purchasable items until February 28. Then we'll likely remove those. This will give us time to finalize numbers with the printers.
After February 28, new backers will still be able to purchase individual items at the add-on price, but the huge discounts of a backer pledge level will be gone for good!
Reach out with any questions! Thank you again!
Surveys on Track for December 20!

We've submitted everything to Backerkit for approval. Assuming there are no issues, surveys for Anansi's Tapestry of Lives should go out December 20 as planned!
Please note, we are not charging shipping in this round of surveys. We're waiting to finalize print production costs and ensure we have accurate shipping weights, so we can get you the lowest shipping possible!
Please reach out with any questions. I'm here to help!
Timeline! And other updates.

Hi, everyone! We've been hard at work wrangling writers and trying to get a chunk of the digital content ready for you all.
I initially thought we could get you early access in November. Unfortunately, our editor was (temporarily) pulled into another project and the individual who was building out everything in Backerkit has been dealing with some recurring health challenges.
Our editor is coming back on board next week, and I'm stepping in to finish up Backerkit, asap
I apologize for the delay. I'm confident this will only effect delivery of early access materials and not our overall product timeline.
Our updated timeline
Backerkit smoke test (make sure everything works) 12/13.
Backerkit messages go out delivering first phase of early access materials: 12/20
We expect the early access PDF will have over 200 pages.
We'll send updates in chunks.
Still targeting delivery of the complete project, including physical rewards in May.
NPC Voices App News
Several backers reached out, asking if they'd be able to include their own NPCs in the app. I can confidently say that you will be able to do that!
In addition we have two other companies that are interested in including NPCs form their properties into the app. To provide you the most value possible, we're building out the app so it will be a marketplace, where not only are NPCs will be available, but also high quality content form others.
Reach out here or at [email protected] with any questions, comments, or anything else!
We'll have some more art and other updates shortly!
