Canada Pledges Update and Outstanding Replacement Info

Hello, folks!

Only a small update for today, going over two very important topics...

Canada Pledges

Our current information from QML is that the ship left, but late. It's reached the states already (it's the OOCL Atlanta; hanging out in New York at the moment), but it's my understanding that it needs head south to Jacksonville, Florida. The pallets are scheduled to be released there on 8/5, with arrival in Canada at the end of August. QML apparently has a large project that will already be mid-fulfillment at that time (or, if we're lucky, finishing up). They are scheduled to be finished with that project on September 10th, so shipping from inside Canada to Canadian backers will begin on September 13th, at the latest, and likely finished shortly thereafter.

Replacements and Miscellaneous Other Pledges

Next week Archon Studio should send out the last of the replacements (minis, damaged boards, etc) as well as the 10 or so games that still need to go out. That will almost wrap up fulfillment; we'll need to wait to hear from folks in Canada/UK/etc to make sure their games arrived safely before we make it official. 

That's all we have for now! We'll be back at some point when we have more news to share. Until then, we'll see you in the Wilds!

Update #58

Minor Shipping Updates and Lavon Rising Campaign

Hello, folks!

It'€™s a busy day for us and we have a lot of ground to cover, so let'€™s get to it!

UK Shipping

QML has finally confirmed that Spiral will begin shipping next week (the week of July 5th). It'€™s later than we expected, but that'€™s well beyond par for the course at this point.

Canada Shipping

The shipping container with Canadian games was supposed to depart on a boat today. I'€™ve asked for confirmation from QML; we'€™ll let folks know as soon as we hear.

Replacements

 Archon is about halfway through sending out replacements for damaged/missing items (though as the last of the backers receive their pledges, I'€™m sure we'€™ll get a few more requests).

Lavon Rising Campaign Has Launched and Prior Backer Details

The Lavon Rising campaign has launched on Gamefound, you can check it out here: https://gamefound.com/projects/lazy-squire-games/wild-assent-lavon-rising#/

If you log into Gamefound using the same email address you had in CrowdOx, you should already see two '€œReturning Backer'€ pledges. If you are logged in with the same email and still don'€™t see the pledges, please reach out to support@lazysquire.gamesand we'€™ll get you sorted. We can also transfer your email if you already had a Gamefound account with a different email, etc. Also, you all should have a $1 credit (it was needed for the email upload), but I wasn'€™t able to confirm that with Gamefound before their workday was over.

Below is what you need to know about the two extra pledges, but first things first: Lavon Rising is an expansion to Wild Assent. It uses content from both the Wild Assent core game and the Shadow of the Silvestrem expansion. It is 100% not standalone (it doesn'€™t even have dice). That said, if you already have the core game and the Shadow of the Silvestrem expansion (Champion pledge), you can buy Lavon Rising by itself and have no issues, gameplay-wise (we'€™ll get to the scale issue below). These pledges (and everything they entail) will be available for previous backers until we close the pledge manager for Wave 1.



Returning Backers Pledge (All Original Content & Lavon Rising)

This pledge is good for both Gladiator (core game only) and Champion (Core and SotS expansion) backers who want the new miniatures and/or the fully printed translations. You will receive the core game, the Shadow of the Silvestrem expansion, the new Dangers of the Wilds box (see below), the Lavon Rising expansion, all stretch goals (Wave 1 & Wave 2) & daily unlocks and all freebies (see below).

Returning Backers Pledge (Lavon Rising Only)

This pledge should only be considered by Champion Pledge (Core and SotS expansion) owners who don'€™t care about miniature scale or translations. It includes the new Dangers of the Wilds box (see below), the Lavon Rising expansion, all stretch goals (Wave 1 & Wave 2) and all freebies (see below).

Dangers of the Wilds

We decided to sweeten the deal for the Shadow of the Silvestrem expansion and added a new box, Dangers of the Wilds, which includes duplicates of a lot of the original campaign creatures (and some new instinct cards) to be used in the new Nightmare mode. This is free with either returning backer pledge.

Freebies

The free '€œFollow us on Gamefound'€ mini from the pre-campaign (Dalkerta War-Rider) and the 72-hour Early Bird reward (Mist Terror) as well as any other freebies we offer during the campaign can be considered part of your pledge (no, you don'€™t get two if you followed or what-have-you), as long as you pledge before the pledge manager closes for Wave 1.

Lavon Rising Review & Gameplay

We sent a Lavon Rising demo to BoardGameCo and a wild Quackalope appeared. You can watch Alex and Jesse both play the game and talk about their experiences (they liked it a lot):

I think that just about covers it. I'll be around in the comments to answer any questions and we'll be back as soon as we have any more fulfilment news. Until then, we'll see you in the Wilds (it's about to get a lot more crowded).

Update #57

USA Shipping Complete; UK and Canada Updates Within

Hello, folks!

All shipping for everywhere except Canada and the UK is complete (USA shipping was the last; it was finished on June 11th). As before, this means your package has been sent, not that you have received it (though I imagine most of you have at this point). Next on the agenda will be replacements for missing/damaged items. If you do find any damage with your pledge (or if something is missing), please send pictures to support@lazysquire.games so we can add you to the list.

UK & Canada

We finally have news on the United Kingdom and Canada, here are the details:

UK - The pallets were picked up from Archon on Monday of this week (June 14th) and they are expected to arrive by tomorrow, with fulfillment to begin next week.

Canada - The boat with the Canadian pallets is scheduled to leave on June 29th, with about a month-ish for travel. We'll keep folks updated as more information comes in for Canada.

Wild Assent - Lavon Rising Updates

We've updated the Lavon Rising campaign page with box contents, etc, You can see them here. We've moved some things around and will now be charging $238 for the original content, but we've decided to keep the total at $109 for existing backers (Kickstarter or late pledge). 

Not much else to report. We'll back sometime in the near future when we have more details about UK/Canadian fulfillment or something else interesting to share. Until then, we'll see you in the Wilds (getting awfully crowded in here, now that I think about it).

Update #56

Fulfillment Update

Hello, folks!

We just wanted to give you a quick update concerning fulfillment of Wild Assent! All told, Archon'€™s portion of shipping (everything but Canada and the UK) is 67% complete.

Fulfillment Status

EU '€“ Shipping is still complete. If you haven'€™t received your pledge yet, please reach out via Kickstarter PM so we can see what the status is with FedEx.

UK - Pledges will be ready to pick up tomorrow; we'€™ll know more about the schedule once that happens (I don'€™t expect it to be a terribly long freight trip).

Canada '€“ The pallets are ready to be pickup up as of today. Once QML picks them up we'€™ll know more.

Rest of Europe '€“ There'€™s still a few packages left to be shipped (Norway and Switzerland, I think), but they should ship soon.

USA '€“ Shipping began last week and continues. Archon is a little under halfway finished and we'€™ve gotten reports of folks already receiving their pledges.

Australia '€“ Shipping is complete (meaning FedEx was given your pledge, not that it was delivered).

Rest of the World '€“ Shipping is complete (meaning FedEx was given your pledge, not that it was delivered).

Lazy Squire Games on Discord

We keep forgetting to tell you, but we recently switched the Stormsunder Discord to a Lazy Squire Games Discord. Wild Assent has its own channel, so feel free to stop by if you have any comments or questions or just want to chat. Here is the link: https://discord.gg/FJbKrCTT3W.

Wild Assent on BoardGameGeek

For the folks who have received their games (and had a chance to try them out), we'€™d really appreciate it if you could stop by and rate Wild Assent on BoardGameGeek. Here is a link (just tap the stars next to "My Rating").

Wild Assent Videos

Another update means another pile of videos, now in Spanish and German as well as English (I'm not even trying to caption all of this. Assume I mentioned Applebee's for no reason at all):

Update #55

EU Shipping Complete; Shipping for USA, Etc Begins Soon(er)

Hello, folks!

As the title states, EU shipping is complete. Archon Studio has also sent out all replacements for broken/missing minis as of a day or two ago (if you sent your request after that, just sit tight!). As for everyone else, we'€™ve met with both Quartermaster Logistics and Archon to see what we can do to get folks their games as quickly as possible. Archon was already packing pledges for QML (pick & pack), so we'€™ve convinced them to take the final step and ship those pledges to backers directly. This solution doesn'€™t work for Canadian or UK backers (because of customs/VAT, etc), so Archon will be packing those pledges first so QML can pick them up as soon as possible.

So, shipping will start next week! We'€™ll be back when we have a firm schedule from QML for Canada and the UK and if anything else comes up in the meantime.
