What a crazy, crazy month it has been!
We had no idea how the world would react to EMBERWIND, and words can’t even begin to describe how pleasantly surprised we were! We’ve been absolutely humbled by how quickly everyone blew through ALL of our social goals! Even more, the 775 Kickstarter backers helped us unlock 18 stretch goals and raise a whopping $61,525!!!
The Core Hero Manual: We released the Beta Edition of the Core Hero Manual during the Kickstarter. We’ve also already updated it once, and we’ll be continuing to update it with new content and improvements regularly. Please leave us your thoughts on our Forums, as we’ll be looking to incorporate your feedback to refine, polish, and improve the material as much as possible as we approach the fulfillment date.
Official Updates available on the Forums!
The Songweave Tapestry: While we can’t reveal too much yet, we thought we’d share a bit of our working process with everyone while we tinker away behind the scenes. Seen below is an image that illustrates how we spend time researching and refining our designs to ensure that each piece of Axia feels unique and alive, yet believable and grounded in history. This particular style of the architecture will be featured in The Songweave Tapestry for the first time (as well as some other locations that we can’t talk about yet).
The architectural style draws inspiration from Art Deco, Ancient Egyptian filigree, and some good-old imagination.
The Other Goodies: We secretly began production already midway during the Kickstarter campaign due to how contagious the community’s energy was and we’ve already completed the bookmarks. The enamel pins will begin production sometime this week and our remaining guests will be starting on their projects too. We’ll be posting updates to our webpage, Kickstarter, and social media feeds so that you can stay updated with our ongoing manufacturing.
Look how shiny they are!
Holiday Fun: We’d also like to introduce you to our Santasaur and his trusty Nomdeer.
And what’s this?! They delivered gifts to our backers already?!
