Backerkit FAQ!
23 days ago – Fri, Nov 12, 2021 at 04:17:12 AM

Flameo, friends! We’re hard at work and have been getting a lot done on Avatar Legends: The RPG! It’s time to give you an update and let you know what’s been going on, clarify some popular questions, and talk about what’s happening next!

Backerkit Updates

You should have received an email by now from Backerkit inviting you to complete a survey. These surveys collect your shipping information, allow you to alter your order, and add any add-ons you want.

NOTE: In order to receive your rewards, you must fill out the Backerkit survey.

For folks who preordered (late pledged), you do not need to fill out another survey nor will you receive one. When you preorder, you filled out the survey at the same time. So you’re all set!

If your pledge failed, you will still receive an invitation. You can use the survey to pay for your failed pledge if you still want to pledge to the project!

If you want a refund, have an issue with your order, need to edit your order, haven’t received your email, or have any other concerns about your pledge or Backerkit, please email us at info@magpiegames.com. We’re happy to help!

Backerkit FAQ

Here are some answers to some of the most common questions we’ve been getting! Hopefully, these help you! But if you have a question you don’t find here, give us a shout via email!

When will Backerkit close?

The pledge manager will be open until December 1st! At that point, we won’t be accepting any more late pledges. You will still be able to fill out your survey after December 1st, but we won’t be able to guarantee on-time delivery for your rewards.

Why can’t I edit my order or pledge?

Once you complete the survey, Backerkit locks it and charges you. To make changes, you’ll need to email us at info@magpiegames.com.

Can I get a refund?

Yes! Email us at info@magpiegames.com. We will no longer offer refunds, however, after December 1st.

How can I change my shipping address?

You can change your shipping information any time by logging into Backerkit and updating it there! You DO NOT need to contact us to make address changes.

I have an Apple ID log in on Kickstarter so I haven’t gotten my survey. What do I do?

Please email us with your backer number and what email address you want us to use instead and we’ll manually change it for you!

Why isn’t the Expanded Play Booklet or Adventure Booklets listed in my rewards?

The Adventure Booklets and Expanded Play Booklet are in Wan Shi Tong's Adventure Guide. WSTAG is an upgraded hardcover version of the booklets that includes exclusive new content featuring Wan Shi Tong! If you want separate physical copies then they are available as the Booklet Bundle at a reduced price. Thanks!

What’s with the blue lotus tile?

The final version of the blue lotus tile is the final approved art based on the guidance from Avatar Studios!

The Work Continues

We have been writing up a storm and things are going great! We’re excited to say that a lot of things are in approvals right now, including most of the final text. Stay tuned here in the updates for previews of these exciting rewards!

A bit more on the process: As we finish the text of the book or prototypes of the accessories, we send them to ViacomCBS for approvals. Unfortunately, until they get all the way through the approvals process, we can’t talk about them or show them to you. But rest assured, that we’re working hard and submitting everything as quickly as we can so we can ensure you have a PDF in your hands! We can’t wait to get all of these rewards out to you as soon as possible!

We’ll also keep you informed of any delays caused by the volume of books—getting enough paper and cardboard to make so many books is a unique challenge right now! Stay tuned, Team Avatar!

Next Steps

As always, we’ll continue to update once a month on our progress, where we’re at

to answer your burning questions, and share what we’ve been up to over the month! We hope you’re having a great Fall, staying safe, and playing awesome games!

Don’t forget you can play the game right now by downloading the Quickstart. We are still refining and expanding these materials, but you and your friends don’t have to wait! Download the quickstart today!:

Thank you for your continued support, excitement, and enthusiasm! We can’t wait for you to see the game! Stay flamin’ and we’ll see you next month!

Backerkit is Live & Luxury Dice Update!
about 2 months ago – Thu, Oct 14, 2021 at 01:01:11 AM

Hello, Team Avatar! 

We’re back, refreshed, and eager to keep the journey going! After some nice tea on our time off, we’ve gotten back to the work of making this epic game happen! We hope you had a great September!

Here’s what’s been going in Magpie Games HQ for Avatar Legends!


Backerkit Fulfillment

We are excited to work with Backerkit for fulfillment! Backerkit is a third-party software designed for pledge management. We’ll be using Backerkit to get your shipping information, allow you to get more add-ons if you want them, deliver PDF rewards, and manage your pledges!

Backerkit surveys will be sent to everyone via the email address used on their Kickstarter account. These surveys will be sent in waves, so don’t panic if you don’t get it right away. We’ve submitted it to review with Backerkit yesterday, and we’ll do a smoke test with a small number of backers before it goes out to everyone. You should see it by the start of next week!

You MUST complete your Backerkit survey to get your rewards. The survey will allow you to enter your shipping address, add any add-ons, and upgrade your pledge. If you do not fill out your survey, we cannot ship your pledge next year.

If you haven’t received your survey by October 30th, or run into any issues navigating Backerkit, please email us at info@magpiegames.com and we’re happy to help you out. Do not DM us on the Kickstarter, please email us directly.


Failed Pledges

If you backed the Kickstarter, and your pledge failed, you will still get a Backerkit survey and the opportunity to fix your dropped pledge. If you have already late-pledged after your payment failed, you will have two orders, one for your late pledge and one for your failed pledge during the campaign. Please do not pay for both. If you need help because you have two orders, please email us at info@magpiegames.com.


Late Pledges

Late pledges will still be available until November 1st. We are keeping them open as long as we can to ensure those who missed out can get the game!

To join the campaign as a late pledge, follow the link here and fill out your order:

https://avatarrpg.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders

If you backed during this Kickstarter, you will fill out your surveys in Backerkit to receive your rewards! The late pledge option is only for people who want to make a late pledge because they missed the end of the campaign.


Luxury Dice Update

We’re so excited to show you some previews for the dice! But We also have an exciting update for everyone! We’ve just heard from Level Up Dice, and they’ve told us that we should receive enough dice to fulfill all the orders on the original timeline, meaning late shipping will not be needed!

And now, some previews!


Next Steps

Now that the team is back in the office, we’re working hard on sourcing the resources for printing so many books, playtesting mechanics, and finishing the book. It’s a busy time as we all work hard to get this amazing game to you!

We are still working with manufacturers on what delays might be caused by the sheer number of things needed to print. We should have an update on the shipping timeline in November!

Don’t forget you can start playing the game right now by downloading the Quickstart. We’ll be refining and expanding these materials as we go, so they won’t be the final product. You can download the quickstart here:

https://magpiegames.com/avatarrpg/

To ensure we keep you up to date without overwhelming you with updates, we’ll be posting one update a month. These updates will fill you in on our progress, show you what we’re currently working on, and give you new play materials as we go.


Thank you once again for your excitement and support. You’re the best Team Avatar there is and we’re so excited for you to see the game as we move forward! Yip yip!

Dante Basco Joins the Celebrity Actual Play

We just got word (today!) that Dante Basco (Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Legend of Korra) will be joining our all-star actual play event!

We’re really excited for these folks to play the game, both because we think it’s a lot of fun to watch a team of talented folks play the game and because it gives us a new way to show you all how to play. We’re always looking for new ways to convey the magic of roleplaying to new players, as well as show you new tricks for making the game work at your table.

We’ll have more info about this actual play event in early 2022. For now, we’re going to be completely focused on making sure we get you all everything you’ve pledged for as soon as we can.

Late Pledges

We know the pain of missing out on a Kickstarter campaign by just a few hours, so we’ve set up a late pledge preorder store through Backerkit that will stay open through at least October 1st.

To join the campaign as a late pledge, follow the link here and fill out your order:

https://avatarrpg.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders

Backerkit

Next Steps

Our team will be taking a quick break to renew and regroup after running such a thrilling Kickstarter! We’ll be taking a week or so off as we recover from this thrilling journey with you.

Final Stretch Goal Unlocked: All-Star Actual Play Video
3 months ago – Wed, Sep 01, 2021 at 05:45:31 AM

Wow, team Avatar! We really can’t believe it! This has been such an incredible journey, and we can’t thank you enough for all your ideas, insights, thoughts, and excitement as we’ve been on this journey together.

Our final stretch goal is unlocked! Let’s take a look!

Final Stretch Goal Unlocked: All-Star Actual Play One Shot -  $8,000,000

At $8 million, we’re producing an all-star actual play one shot featuring Satine Phoenix (Satine's Quest, Sirens: Battle of the Bards), Becca Scott (Good Time Society, South Park), and Jennie Kwan (California Dreams, Avatar: The Last Airbender)!

This single session adventure will feature new characters created for the event and portrayed by these amazing actors and streamers, taking on an adventure designed by the Magpie Games team just for this event. And who knows? There might be another special guest or two who drops by to join the fun…

The adventure they play will be made into an exclusive PDF adventure just for backers! Join in the fun by playing the same adventure at home with your own gaang! A PDF adventure will be created after the game and sent exclusively to our backers!

Backers at the Fire Ferret level and above get early access to the actual play production in early 2022 via Backerkit’s digital downloads, and we’ll post the final version to our YouTube channel for anyone and everyone to enjoy when the core book is released in retail stores.They will also get an exclusive PDF of the adventure so they can play it themselves!

The Journey Continues… as the Campaign Comes to a Close

As we head into the final two days of the Kickstarter, we want to express our deepest gratitude for all your help over this campaign. It’s been an incredible journey, filled with surprises, mind blowing support, astronomical record smashing, and such love and kindness from you, Team Avatar!

Thanks to all of you we've raised nearly four times the previous record for a tabletop rpg on Kickstarter, funded more than thirty stretch goals, unlocked a full hardcover book worth of material, and shown the amazing power of the Avatar Legends fanbase. This campaign is incredibly special, not just because of the amount we've raised, but also because you all have shown how much joy and excitement there is for more stories in the Avatarverse!

We can’t wait to see where we’ll be at the end of this journey, but we know for certain you’ve been an integral part of it! So thank you, once again, for your kindness, excitement, and support. We really couldn’t have done this without you. We’re so proud that you all have helped us reach such amazing heights!

Until next time, Team Avatar! Yip yip!

Final Stretch Goal: All-Star Actual Play Video
3 months ago – Wed, Sep 01, 2021 at 05:39:17 AM

Holy Shu, Team Avatar…we’re still breaking records! We’ve raised nearly $8 million—with two days left to go—and we’re closing in on the top ten projects of all time thanks to your awesome support. That’s right. We’re currently #16! And if we can reach $9.2 million (maybe??), we’ll take our spot in the top ten ahead of some of the biggest tabletop games ever Kickstarted. Thank you so much for making this such an amazing campaign.

But that’s for the days ahead. For now, it’s time to tell you all about our FINAL stretch goal. Kickstarter update, do the thing!

Final Stretch Goal: All-Star Actual Play One Shot -  $8,000,000

At $8 million, we're going to produce an all-star actual play one shot featuring Satine Phoenix (Satine's Quest, Sirens: Battle of the Bards), Becca Scott (Good Time Society, South Park), and Jennie Kwan (California Dreams, Avatar: The Last Airbender)!

This single session adventure will feature new characters created for the event and portrayed by these amazing actors and streamers, taking on an adventure designed by the Magpie Games team just for this event. And who knows? There might be another special guest or two who drops by to join the fun…

Backers at the Fire Ferret level and above get early access to this actual play production in early 2022 via Backerkit’s digital downloads, and we’ll post the final version to our YouTube channel for anyone and everyone to enjoy when the core book is released in retail stores.

This is the last stretch goal for this campaign—but not the last cool thing we’re going to do for it! We’ve got another few fun things in for approvals with Avatar Studios and ViacomCBS, but you all have done such an amazing job breaking every single record that we don’t want to directly tie anything else to the funding for the campaign. We’ll announce more fun projects and cool opportunities as we get them approved, and rest assured, you’ll be the first to hear about them!

Global Supply Issues

On that note, we wanted to take a moment to let you know about some potential challenges on the horizon. In short, this campaign has now grown to a size that we are encountering limits on the global paper supply available for printing this many books—our printer is telling us that there may not be enough cardboard in the United States to print these books on our original schedule.

We’re ahead of this issue—and every other global supply/shipping issue—because we’ve been working since 2020 to make sure we had everything lined up to send everything to you all on time. But… the success of this campaign is so big, so monumental, so incredible, that you all are straining the capacity of every printer we’re talking to about the new order quantities.

What does this mean? Well… we’re not sure yet. We’re already talking to new printers who work at this scale about finding special sources of materials, and we’re still hopeful that we’ll ship everything to you in February as planned; we expect to have all of the PDFs and prototypes done right on time. But getting such a massive order through printing when there isn’t enough cardboard is tough! We wanted to make sure you all knew early, and we promise we’re going to keep working on the problem. Stay tuned!

The Journey Continues….

Our final stretch goal may be reached soon, but we’ve still got two more days left in the campaign. Let your friends (and rivals!) know all about the campaign—they don’t have much time! Thank you for being amazing backers and we can’t wait to wrap up the campaign!

Don’t forget, you can get the Quickstart here to start playing now: https://magpiegames.com/avatarrpg/
