Latest Updates from Our Project:

Surveys Closed and Fulfillment Update
3 days ago – Wed, Apr 01, 2020 at 01:42:26 AM

Thank you, everyone, for your support! With the BackerKit surveys now closed, the Warehouse 23 team has started fulfilling the PDF rewards. Please be patient as they work through the delivery process. We will post another update once all PDF rewards have been sent out.

As for physical rewards, our office still closed and we are unable to start shipping packages. Once we can return to our offices, we will start packing and mailing the physical rewards. We appreciate your patience as all of us wait for things in the world to return to normal.

Two New Books!

Later today, on Kickstarter, we will open the latest campaign for The Fantasy Trip. We've got two books all set to go in a single project; click the green button on this page to receive email notification when the project goes live.

What are the two new books?

  • The Book of Unlife, a collection of undead monsters to use in your games.
  • Red Crypt, a new solitaire adventure!

Physical rewards in the new campaign will be limited to U.S. backers only. For those of you outside of the U.S., we will release both of these books on Amazon as print-on-demand titles just as soon as we ship out the printed books to U.S. backers.

Why? Using the Amazon print-on-demand tools makes it much cheaper for those outside of the U.S. to get the books without spending too much on shipping. In many cases, Amazon prints the books in the regions where they are ordered, and this means that you pay a lot less for postage than if we had to ship the books to you.

Please click the green button this page to receive email notification when the project launches later today.

BackerKit Surveys Now Open!
29 days ago – Thu, Mar 05, 2020 at 08:42:47 PM

The BackerKit stage has opened, and over 60% of you have already completed your surveys. Thank you! You have until March 30, 2020, to complete your surveys. After that date, any incomplete surveys will be refunded and you will be removed from the project. We do this so that we can properly close the campaign.

If you encounter issues with your survey, please email kickstart@sjgames.com for support.

NOTE: If you did not back this project and want to get in early, the preorder page is also open.

Decks of Destiny

For those of you who missed the Decks of Destiny campaign, you'll be happy to hear that the expansion -- and several of the add-ons -- is listed in the Hexagram #4 BackerKit survey. These are only available to U.S. backers; those of you outside of the United States will want to watch Warehouse 23 for a chance at these items in the future.

To learn more about Decks of Destiny, Steve has put together a new overview of the items created thanks to the success of the project; check it out here!

Woo Hoo! It's At Press!
about 2 months ago – Fri, Feb 14, 2020 at 10:29:55 PM

As soon as you hit the goal, we sent Hexagram #4 off to Mixam. The test print is expected on Monday. As soon as the campaign ends, we’ll place the print order. We are doing everything we can to get this Quickstarter into your hands as soon as possible!

Yes! Decks of Destiny and other TFT items will be available in the Hexagram #4 BackerKit survey.

In other TFT news:

The Fantasy Trip performed well enough in 2019 that Warehouse 23 has elevated the line to a front-page, top-level link. There were four TFT items in the 2019 Top 40, including #4 and #5. To see what they were, check out our annual Stakeholders’ Report.

• The Gaming Ballistic TFT adventures are now on Warehouse 23 in PDF.

More support is on the way, including a campaign background, a single-character solo, another book of adventures (4 out of 5 are already written and laid out, and a couple are illustrated) . . . and bestiaries. Plural. 2020 will be a good year for TFT.

I wrote you an update. I tried to send it. It vanished, and I can't get it back. This should teach me to write them offline.

I'll try again AFTER breakfast.
