Latest Updates from Our Project:

Midnight Library Digital Reward Distribution
about 1 year ago – Thu, Jun 13, 2019 at 07:57:27 PM

Hello Contagious!

We'll have our regularly scheduled month-end update in a few weeks, but I didn't want to wait to share this - a big digital reward from our list.

So, topics for today:

1. Digital Reward Distribution
2. Backerkit reminders
 

The Midnight Library Digital Collection

DIGITAL REWARD DISTRIBUTION

Many of the rewards for our kickstarter projects take a lot of time and effort to complete. Usually, the kickstarter is a means of moving the project from an idea (even when it's a mostly-fully-written idea) into the actual channel that turns it into a project/product. It'll be a while before we're ready to talk about delivery on the Contagion Chronicle, and even longer for the projects generated via Stretch Goals (Global Outbreaks, Player's Companion).

That said, there are a few rewards that are available now, as they were mostly add-on bundles of existing products. And now, we can work on getting those out to you before the week ends.

Midnight Library Digital PDF Rewards Available :

 - Chronicles of Darkness Core Rules PDF
 - Vampire: The Requiem 2nd Edition PDF
 - Werewolf: The Forsaken 2nd Edition PDF
 - Mage the Awakening 2nd Edition PDF
 - Changeling: The Lost Second Edition PDF
 - Promethean the Created 2nd Edition PDF
 - Chronicles of Darkness: Dark Eras PDF
 - Demon the Descent PDF
 - Beast: The Primordial PDF 

REWARD DISTRIBUTION  

Your link to claim these digital rewards will be sent out by our BackerKit pledge manager over the next day. Since we are using our partners at DriveThruRPG as the host for this, you will need to set up a DriveThru account if you don't have one already. If you encounter any problems with downloading your rewards, please contact DTRPG's customer service to resolve the matter, they've always been top-rated for customer service. http://www.drivethrurpg.com/contact_us.ph

Again, you will receive an e-mail from BackerKit with links for these rewards over the next 24 hours if any of them are on your expected list of rewards. I'll be releasing them in waves, so don't panic if you only see a handful of links at first... the rest are coming. 

The easiest way to see if you've got digital downloads available is to login to your backerkit account: https://contagion-chronicle.backerkit.com/backer/digital_rewards and it'll show anything available. Your backerkit account should also confirm all rewards that you should expect from your reward tier selected. 


If you need to review your information or pledge status, you can return to your survey by clicking the link in your survey email or requesting your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our BackerKit project page at https://contagion-chronicle.backerkit.com

If you used your Facebook credentials to log in to your Kickstarter account, the BackerKit survey is sent to the email address you use for your Facebook account. If you have another email address that you prefer to use, please contact support at  https://contagion-chronicle.backerkit.com/faq 

If you had added on one of the Midnight Library bundles, but haven't yet completed your survey - remember to select your titles in BackerKit. There's more info in our earlier Survey post <here>

If you have any other questions or concerns, you can post them to the comments for this update, the comment section, or contact the team via the Contact Creator link on the kickstarter page and Rich will forward it to me.

You'll hear from me in a few more weeks with our regular month-end status update.

May 2019 Update
about 1 year ago – Fri, May 31, 2019 at 03:02:11 AM

Hello Contagious,

Welcome to the first of what will be many regular month-end status updates.

It's James! I'm still your point person in our post-kickstarter campaign phase.
It's James! I'm still your point person in our post-kickstarter campaign phase.

We're about to start getting into the regular rhythm of month-end status updates. It's a pretty involved and dynamic process, creating these books, so I want to ensure that I have constant and consistent communication with all backers. Each month, I'll be providing a status update for our rewards (usually nothing more complicated than "delivered" or "pending"), as well as sharing information about this project and other Onyx Path projects where possible. 

Many of these updates will be similar - these projects take a fair amount of time to build, and some stages are multi-part processes, so a book in "Development"may not show incremental updates in our monthly summary, but there's always forward progress being made.

 And, just a reminder to confirm your rewards in your BackerKit survey, if you haven't done so already. After you respond to your survey, you can go back later and change your responses at any time before we close the surveys and get our final counts.

If you need to review your information or pledge status, you can return to your survey by clicking the link in your survey email or requesting your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our BackerKit project page at https://contagion-chronicle.backerkit.com

If you used your Facebook credentials to log in to your Kickstarter account, the BackerKit survey is sent to the email address you use for your Facebook account. If you have another email address that you prefer to use, please contact support at  https://contagion-chronicle.backerkit.com/faq 

If you have any other questions or concerns, you can post them to the comments for this update, the comment section, or contact the team via the Contact Creator link on the kickstarter page and Rich will forward it to me.

The Onyx Path team are gathering for the UK Game Expo! Eddy Webb, Matt McElroy, and Rich Thomas have traveled across the sea to join Matthew Dawkins, Steffie de Vaan, John Burke, Chris Allen, and Klara Herbol at the UK Games Expo this weeked, May 31st - June 2nd. If you're in the area, drop by and say hi!

BACKER SURVEYS  

Over the next few days, you’ll receive an email from us with a special link to your BackerKit survey. It’s important to respond to your survey as quickly as you can since we need this information to fulfill your rewards.


You don’t need to create a BackerKit account to fill out your survey. When you receive the email with the survey, click the survey link to respond. Answer the questions about your reward preferences, provide shipping information, and purchase add-on items if you like. You don’t have access to this survey link yet, but it will be available soon via email!  

After you respond to your survey, you can go back later and change your responses at any time before we close the surveys and get our final counts.

If you need to review your information or pledge status, you can return to your survey by clicking the link in your survey email or requesting your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our BackerKit project page at https://contagion-chronicle.backerkit.com

Once we've got a fair response to our survey and collected a reasonable amount of info, I'll be working on fulfilling rewards that are available now - like the PDFs of the titles included in the Midnight Library bundles. 

Midnight Library PDF Bundles

You'll be able to select the Midnight Library PDF Bundles in the Add On screen, which is a step in your overall survey process. When you select any of these PDF Bundles, you'll see additional follow-up questions asking you to select each specific title. Make sure you've completed your entire survey (you'll see the questions on the right as you work through them) and confirmed each title in your bundle.

Choose your title. Select NEXT QUESTION> to move through the questions on the right, and press NEXT when all choices have been made.

Backers Only - New Compiled Manuscript Link

Hello Contagious Kickstarter Backers,

It's James, your point person for this kickstarter campaign.
It's James, your point person for this kickstarter campaign.

Now that the campaign is over and we've shared the many preview sections of the manuscript, it's time to piece all the parts together and present the manuscript in one single download file. 

Complete Kickstarter Manuscript Preview

CLICK HERE to download the Complete Contagion Chronicle Kickstarter Manuscript Preview


There are no massive changes or re-written text pieces in this compiled manuscript; it's just the previews we've already shared mashed together in proper order, as well as adding the fiction pieces into the manuscript for a little flavor.

As I've noted with every update, please remember that this manuscript is not yet be in the final form -- there are still minor edits, maybe a few typos, and possibly some rough edges still to sand down on this preview, but you can consider it about 95% finished.  

Also note, if anything looks really weird, there may be a couple of odd artifacts that popped in when I was combining all of the sections and creating the PDF. I had a few issues... but it's all done now! :) 

In the next day, I'll be removing all of the previous files that were shared, and this will be the only link that remains active until the PDF is ready, so please use this one going forward. Enjoy!
