Shipping Costs & Info 📦
25 days ago – Sun, Nov 01, 2020 at 08:06:07 PM

Good morning!

Before we get into shipping, a quick update: we have hired an editor and they officially start work on the books tomorrow! 🎉

On to shipping...

Over the coming week, shipping costs will be added to accounts with physical items. The cost is based on the address provided when you filled out your BackerKit survey.

Addresses will not be locked until we get closer to shipping in Q1 2021. When that happens, a Final Shipping Address Reminder email will be sent to everyone to confirm or update their address.

Shipping costs and add-ons will not be charged until Q1 2021.

A few housekeeping items...

  • Several backers have credits remaining in their accounts. If you are unsure if you've used up all of your account's credits, please go into your BackerKit survey link to your account and double-check.
  • We still have a few backers who have not yet completed their surveys. We will be messaging you over the next day or two with your survey links so that you can confirm your order. 

We've Got DICE!!! *whispers* and they are glorious...
about 1 month ago – Fri, Oct 23, 2020 at 11:14:47 AM

They're finally here! The first official dice for The Nuadan Chronicles! If you haven't yet, you can add them to your pledge (if you are international, you will need to order a physical copy of one or both books).

Over on our YouTube channel, we've posted the unboxing and talk a little bit more about their features. 

Many thanks to Allie and Q Workshop! Allie designed all of our logos, national symbols, and the dice design. The Q Workshop crew did a great job and we had a good experience working with them to get all 150 dice sets made.

In the next several days, we'll be posting about shipping prices. So stay tuned!

BackerKit Closes October 31st, Plus More News 📰
about 2 months ago – Tue, Oct 06, 2020 at 02:32:29 AM

Happy October! 👻 We just realized it's been a year since our Kickstarter launch. Lots of things have happened since then with The Nuadan Chronicles and it's only going to get more intense from here.

  • First things first, we will be closing pre-orders on BackerKit on October 31st. As mentioned during the campaign, we will be placing shipping charges for each backer in their checkout list for physical items. More on that in the next update.
  • The lore book is finished and we'll be doing a final pass through our beta reader edits before handing it to an editor. The rulebook is in the final stages and we're in talks with an editor for it as well.
  • The custom dice are on their way here! We'll post pictures when they arrive. You can still add them to your pre-order, just make sure to do so by the end of the month (if you are outside the U.S. you'll need to order one or both books).

Thank you for everyone's patience. We know it's been a rough year. For us, we've missed going to cons and playing tabletop games in-person with friends. There's been a good deal of anxiety and depression in our own lives, but we're pushing through. 

We'll need to move the timeline back to early 2021. It's not what we want, but it will probably work out for the best considering how hectic the winter holiday season can get for many people. We will distribute digital items (books, art, music) as soon as the books go to print.

In the meantime, Jason and I want to keep you updated as much as possible. If you have any questions about the game, the world, or the development process, leave a question down in the comments. If we get enough, we might do a video response (our cats will probably make a special appearance 😺).

That's it for now. If you follow us on Twitter, we're doing Merathi vocabulary for #Inktober2020 and doing weekly character profiles.

Stay safe! ❤

Blood of the Sea - Outcomes
3 months ago – Sat, Sep 05, 2020 at 01:06:48 AM

Waaaay back last year when our Kickstarter released we featured a Quickstart Guide (if you consider 100 pages "quick" 😅). Part of that guide included a short mission called Blood of the Sea

One of the things we want to do with The Nuadan Chronicles is to allow players to influence the world of Nuada via mission outcomes. Many thanks to everyone who played through Blood of the Sea and submitted their results! 

Here is what happened after the mission ended and how it impacts the world going forward:

  • Merathi military intelligence is aware of the advanced submarine Uldris was trying to build but since it was destroyed they will be forced to pick through the wreckage to understand how it works. Uldrisi naval commanders can breathe a sigh of relief... for now.
  • The data and schematics from the naval base were successfully turned over to the wardens. These can be used to rebuild an improved version of the submarine elsewhere in Uldris.
  • However, the retired warden Ailis, who assisted in the retrieval of the plans,sent a copy to his Merathi contacts. He continues to spy for the enemy, building a network within the province of Oesanju.
  • Underwater techno-archaeologist Jaera survived the ordeal and insists on studying the jengu. To buy her silence, the wardens grant her strict permission under the agreement that she deliver all discoveries to them.
  • The jengu have the storm sphere that was locked in the vault. The loss of the sphere and news of the strange creatures is disquieting, but there is little that can be done about it. The matter is filed away and forgotten as the war rages on.
  • Enough proof is recovered regarding the existence of the jengu that Uldrisi wardens must take the news seriously. Unsure what to do with such a revelation, the wardens swear the guild members who fought them to secrecy. 

There will be a short story based on the mission as well. We've done this for previous playtest missions like The Tower in the Woods and The Haunted Forest. The former will be included in the rulebook and the latter will be posted on our website.

Beta Reading Frenzy 🤯
4 months ago – Thu, Jul 30, 2020 at 03:45:02 AM

Our beta readers are off to the races! We have several lovely people helping read through the lore right now to give feedback and proofread. We plan to do the same for the rulebook soon. 

Seuma continues to polish the chronicle and keep up-to-date on the state of Nuada via newspapers and mysterious telegrams.

Other game improvements include:

  • Expanded lore for the territory of Imakesh
  • Added more Magic and Tech Talents
  • Balanced Armor

If you have any questions about the game that you would like to know more about (fae, weapons, short stories, etc.), let us know in the comments and we can make that a future update topic!

Make sure to follow our social media: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram. We plan to do some of our iconic character's profiles to show their builds and background lore.
