Hello out there!
Back with a quick update as we edge closer to fulfillment on this project!
Lock Down & Outstanding Balances
We're checking in with a final reminder that BackerKit surveys for this project will be locking down at the end of this month, just about two weeks from today. A bit over 100 surveys remain unanswered, so please get your responses in soon, so we don't have to risk your order being delayed.
After lockdown, we'll move on to processing all outstanding charges on orders, which will take place on Monday, February 8th. So you should expect to see charges come through on that date, or slightly after if processing is delayed.
Wyrm Lyfe: Season 7
Our vlog, with new episodes out every Wednesday and Friday, is back after a brief, end-of-year hiatus. The first episode covered the wild roller-coaster that was 2020, and the first all-new episode of the season premiered Wednesday. A new episode is set to arrive later today, but you can watch Wednesday's episode below:
Thank you for your support!
BackerKit Locking Down January 31st!
18 days ago
– Wed, Jan 06, 2021 at 07:20:21 AM
We don't have much to report, so this update will be brief, but we did want to check in with everyone and wish you all a happy new year! Hard to believe 2020 is over... it seemed like it would be with us forever.
As a reminder, BackerKit surveys will be locked down at the end of this month, so be sure to fill it out completely as soon as possible, if you haven't already. While 94% of orders are in, a bit less than 200 people have yet to confirm. So, please, be sure to do so if you're in that group!
It's a relatively quiet time for us, and many of you, as well - the rush of the holidays is over, and there's a bit of a lull before things pick up for the new year. We hope you're taking some time to rest - it's certainly something we all need. In any event, we hope the holidays have treated you well, and we're grateful for your support, as always.
If you've got any questions leading up to lock down, now's the time, be sure to hit us up and we'll be happy to help. Otherwise, look out for a final reminder or two as we close in on the 31st, and then production can begin - fulfillment is slated for April, and it'll be here before we know it.
Countdown to Fulfillment

Well, we're officially in the quiet period for this campaign. We're gathering information and responses via BackerKit, where about 90% of you have filled out your survey! Thanks to everyone that's done so so far.
We'll continue to send reminders to the remaining 10%, and remember, up until the surveys are locked - slated for end of January - you can change and add to your order at any time.
It's always exciting to see surveys start to come in on a project. You never really know what the most popular items will be, and it often isn't necessarily what we expect. We thought we'd highlight some of the trends we're seeing with the Corrupted Collection this time around:
"Gotta Have It" Award: This one goes to the most popular add-on by far, Corrupted Prismatic Dice. Whether a full set or just a d20, over 1,000 backers have snagged these enchanting polyhedrals.
"Eye of the Beholder" Award: Our most popular Art Tray by a wide margin, Crystal Sully's Midnight Dragon design takes the prize, and it's easy to see why. Meanwhile, Frank Frazetta's classic Death Dealer was the most popular of his pieces in the campaign. It's no surprise - the painting remains one of his most iconic works. Also quite popular, Frazetta's Skull King and Crystal's Kraken Hunter, with approximately 7 in 10 of the Art Trays being one of these four designs.
"Captain Obvious" Award (or, the "I'm Not Coffin, You're Coffin!" Award): Among our Coffin Vaults and Trays, the Wenge with Turquoise has proven to be far and away the most popular, surprising no one. From the first time we tried it, we felt it was a great combination, especially for Halloween-themed pieces. Hundreds of you agree - and you all have excellent taste, if we don't say so, ourselves...
We look forward to the final numbers coming in. For those of you that have filled it out - thanks again! For those of you still waiting to get around to it - please get to it as soon as you can. You should have a reminder email soon. I know, you're thinking, "eh, I'll get to it later," but the thing is, it's very easy to forget to do it later. Later is when you're doing other stuff. Remember? But you haven't forgotten it yet, because we're still talking about it, right? So maybe you should, before you...
You're long gone, aren't you? Oh well. *sigh*
Seriously, we know you're busy. Just get to it when you can, and before January 31st, and you'll be good. :)
Halloween & Christmas & 2020, oh my?
When worlds collide! Here we are, after a long, long year, entering the home stretch of 2020. A lot has happened, and it's been tough on everyone. But we do hope as the holidays continue, you can take a little time to rest, breathe, and prepare for a new year. Reflect on the things that matter most to you, with the people that matter most to you - whether that's in person or remotely.
Our next update, barring anything coming up sooner, will be on the 1st day of a brand new year. And that's a nice thought. I mean, maybe it's me, but this one seems to have overstayed its welcome just a bit.
All the best, everybody - we'll be in touch soon.

BackerKit Survey Launch, Art Gallery & More

Well, here we are, about two weeks on from the close of the campaign. That means BackerKit is about to be launched, and you can finally fill out your surveys and officially choose your items!
The process is pretty simple, but read on for the details.
Monday or Tuesday of this week you should receive an email invitation to complete your survey. The subject will read something along the lines of, "Response Needed -- Get your reward for The Corrupted Collection II: Moon Rising" - this is your survey invitation.
The link inside leads to your personalized survey. Your pledge data has already been imported into BackerKit from Kickstarter, so you'll just need to confirm some details, answer a few brief survey questions, and then you'll get to choose your items.
It's important to note that while you had items in mind when you pledged, you are the only person that has this information. So, in order to convert that pledge into an actual order of items that we can fulfill, you'll need to select your items in the add-ons portion of the BackerKit survey.
After your survey, you'll reach an "add-ons" section - here, you must select any and all items in your pledge. You'll notice that your pledge amount on Kickstarter has been converted into credit which you can apply in this step. You're also free to add items beyond what you initially pledged for - if you do so, you can add funds right in BackerKit easily and check out just like you would on any e-commerce site. But whether or not you're adding new items beyond your initial pledge, you must select every item you want in this step, or we can't fulfill your order!
After that, you'll confirm your shipping and, if necessary, payment details, and then you're done! After that, it's all on us. :)
We've compiled all of the art pieces unlocked in the campaign, and added them to a gallery on our website. If you're having trouble deciding which art trays or prints you'd like, you can take a look at everything there.
Digital Art Downloads
The digital art stretch goal was reached, of course, which means all backers will be receiving downloads of all the art in the campaign! We're working with the artists to prepare approved files, after which they'll be uploaded and accessible to you through BackerKit.
We're barreling towards the end of 2020 with alarming speed. How does one year feel simultaneously like a decade and a month? Well, regardless, we'll keep documenting it with our twice-weekly vlog, Wyrm Lyfe. New episodes drop every Wednesday and Friday, and if you subscribe and join us to watch the premiere, you can view it first with no ads! This week, we check out some new machines and talk about the impending holidays. Check it out here:
Thank you all for your support, and we're on hand for any questions you may have, now, or especially in the coming days when BackerKit launches. Don't hesitate to reach out and we'll be happy to help.
