Can I change my pledge level in the Pledge Manager?

You cannot change your pledge level, but you will be able to add any items you want from the campaign to your pledge. As long as you pledge for the Encounters tier or higher, you will have access to all unlocked stretch goals.

How do I pledge for an extra copy of Gloom of Kilforth?

Each backer is able to add up to one single extra copy of Gloom of Kilforth to their order for the same reduced Kickstarter price of £48, just add this total to your pledge either during the campaign or in the pledge manager.

Seeing that the rule book changed, did any rules change in GoK from the initial release?

No, the rulebook changes are just clarifications.

Last updated: September 29, 2017 12:25

Will there be a Print and Play option?

No. We learnt that less than 0.5% of backers actually took us up on our Print and Play option so we can't really justify investing resources in a PnP version.

Why is free worldwide shipping no longer included like in the original GoK campaign?

For our company to stay alive this is no longer a feasible option.

As soon as you guys will let me run it - what are you up to next month?? :P But seriously, probably this time next year.

Planning for card sleeves: what are the size of the cards, and how many of each size are there?

We use Swan Sleeves - 44mm x 68mm for the mini cards, and 64mm x 89mm for the regular sized cards. Pic here:

Sleeving is a very personal thing though, so your mileage may vary...

Will Ania still handle some of the artwork for this new expansion?

She already has.

Last updated: September 29, 2017 12:25

Can we see art samples from the new artist(s) please?

Keep your eyes peeled for our updates.

Last updated: September 29, 2017 12:25

Will Gloom of Kilforth be available at retail?

In limited quantities in the UK and the US yes, as well as foreign language versions in French and German. The RRP will be £57.

Last updated: September 29, 2017 12:25

What type of card stock will be used?

300gsm glossy.

Last updated: September 29, 2017 12:25

Will this Kickstarter affect production of 1066, Tears to Many Mothers?

No. For the reprint of the original game we just send the print-ready files to the manufacturers again and they do another print run, so we just need the numbers. The expansion content, which is already designed, really just needs the artwork and print-ready files to finish it up and we’ll have a separate team delivering this.

How do I make sure my credit card will process payment for foreign currency?

Speak to your credit card provider and advise them that there will be a single unusual transaction on your account at the end of this month.

What type of beer goes best with a game of GoK? ;)

A fresh-from-cask stein of Glook! Or failing that Tristan’s personal favourite - San Miguel 660ml bottle (330ml is unacceptable), straight from the bottle.

Last updated: September 29, 2017 12:25

Will there be a playmat?

No, there won't be a playmat in this Kickstarter, but we might have one in the next Kickstarter for the stand-alone sequel Touch of Death: A Fantasy Quest Game. Reason being we're already developing a playmat for our other game (1066, Tears to Many Mothers Official Chat Group) and want to make sure we get that absolutely perfect first. If all goes well, we'll maybe develop a Fantasy Quest Game playmat in the future too. But not just yet. :)

Can existing backers get a printed version of the updated rulebook?

We will do everything we can to make the new rulebook available to existing backers in the pledge manager, but remember the digital pdf version will be available to all too.

Last updated: October 01, 2017 08:44

Will the standees for the new unlocked Races come with the Pimp My Gloom expansion?

Yes - standees for the new unlocked Races will come with the Pimp My Gloom expansion. Note that you’ll already have the Class standees in the game if you don’t get Pimp My Gloom. :)

I'm a backer who already owns the game, can I name a Legend card?

Yes, if there are enough Legend pledges left you can increase your pledge by the difference (£62) then private message me and I will set this up for you.

Are all the Stretch Goals from the original GoK Campaign included in the base game here?

BackerKit FAQ

What is BackerKit?

BackerKit is a service that crowdfunded project creators use to keep track of hundreds to tens of thousands of backers—from shipping details, pledge levels, preferences and quantities, whether they have paid or had their card declined, special notes, and everything in between!

The BackerKit software and support team is independent from the campaign’s project team—BackerKit does not handle the actual reward shipping. For more information about the preparation or delivery status of your rewards, please check the project's updates page.

How does BackerKit work?

After the campaign ends, the project creator will send you an email with a unique link to your survey. You can check out a walkthrough of the process here.

How do I update my shipping address?

BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the project is locked down for shipping. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.

I completed the survey, but haven't received my rewards yet. When will they arrive?

As BackerKit does not actually handle any rewards or shipping, the best way to stay updated on the shipping timeline would be to check out the project's updates page.

Why can’t I log into my account?

Request a login link to your survey by entering your email here:
https://kilforth.backerkit.com/

BackerKit will send you an automated email with an invite link to whatever email you pledged with.

I never received my invitation. How do I complete the survey?

The most common reasons for not receiving a survey email is that you may be checking an email inbox different from the email address you used to sign up with Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account, or it may be caught in your spam filter.

Confirm that the email address you are searching matches the email address tied to your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Tilt Pro account. If that doesn’t work, then try checking your spam, junk or promotions folders. You can also search for "backerkit” in your inbox.

To resend the survey to yourself, visit the project page and input the email address associated with your Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account.

When will my pledge will be shipped, charged or locked down?

That is handled directly by the project creator. BackerKit functions independently of the project itself, so we do not have control of their physical shipping timeline. If you want to check on the project’s status, we recommend reading over the project's updates page.

Can I upgrade or get multiple copies of my pledge?

This depends on the project creator’s decision. If you are unable to see the ‘Want to switch your pledge level?’ after clicking on your pledge amount under “Pledge Level” in your survey, then the project creator would prefer people not to switch pledge levels.
