Proofs are coming
Quick update to say that paper proofs are coming in next week. They should've been here by now, but we received this message from the printers: 'we ran into a problem last week: the machine that prints colour proofs is broken and needs to be replaced. they said they would come yesterday, but it appears they've rescheduled for next week. we have all our clients waiting and we apologise for that'. As soon as we have the proofs we will share them with you all.
THAT SAID, if the proofs look good and no adjustments are needed (we don't think significant changes will be required, since we are printing with the same company that did Undying Sands 1e), we are still on time to have production wrapped up in June, as per the original ETA. Then, we will move on to fulfilment. if you have any questions, hit us up at firstname.lastname@example.org

Hey! BackerKit is live. Please fill in the survey when you see it, it should have arrived by e-mail by now. BackerKit will remain live for about eight weeks, until production comes to an end. Then, cards will be charged (we're aiming for end of May) and, some time after that, we will lock down addresses (aiming for end of June). We will let you know if we hit any delays. If you have any questions, concerns, issues, just let us know or send us a mail at email@example.com
Pre-order store for non-backers is also live and you can check it out HERE.

Quick update to say that we have submitted our BackerKit page and pre-order store for review, which should be cleared for launch on Monday. We will then run a smoke test to make sure everything is in place. Please keep an eye out for incoming e-mails. As mentioned before, we are using Exalted Funeral's BackerKit, so if you see Exalted's name in there for some reason, don't think it's weird. Also, when your cards are charged (probably in a month), the charge will most likely appear under "Exalted Funeral". Once again, this will be us.
PRODUCTION: we are going to the factory next week to initiate production procedures. All files are done and print-ready. If you have any questions, please do tell.

Thank you everyone!
What a memorable campaign this was. Thank you all for making it possible. We didn't reach the 35k euros mark, but we've ended up so close that... we've decided to include the last Stretch Goal regardless, as a token of gratitude! So, all Bottled Sea sets will come with a Die Drop Poster.
As explained in the campaign, the project is pretty much print-ready at the moment, barring a few minor details that can be easily taken care of in one week or two. That's also how long it usually takes for the KS funds to clear anyway. Here's a timeline of events for the project:
- Rest of February: clear funds + prepare print files + assemble BackerKit.
- Early March: open BackerKit + send everything off to production.
- March-May: production! factories/printers are taking a lot longer to produce these days, so we expect at least a two-month production timeline.
- June: shipping to Exalted Funeral + fulfillment.
Please note that we will be using Exalted Funeral's BackerKit - it's simply easier this way, considering they will be doing the bulk of fulfillment. If you see a charge in your banking cards from Exalted later on, this is most likely us. We will remind you again of this when BackerKit opens.
If you have any questions, just send as message.
Project moving towards production

Funds are in!
Quick progress update to share some good news. The funds have finally arrived, and have been successfully processed. This means that the project will now be moving towards production. We are going to sort out one or two minor details, then send everything off for production in the next couple of weeks. It is expected that production will take at least a couple of months, which means we are aiming for fulfilment in or around June. We will keep everyone informed on progress.
We intend to set up the campaign's BackerKit in the next two weeks. As mentioned before, we plan on using Exalted Funeral's BackerKit, because the bulk of fulfillment is theirs. Once BackerKit opens, you will be able to pay for shipping and add any extra items to your pledge (including the Tombs of Ancient Royalty pamphlet module, which many of you have requested). If you have any questions, please send us a message or mail.
