An unbelievable finish!
over 1 year ago – Wed, Mar 31, 2021 at 07:36:10 PM

What a fantastic end! You guys are AMAZING!

We are so humbled by your support, suggestions, and dedication to our game and our efforts. Thank you all for being here and helping us through this campaign. We couldn't have done it without you. We are so thankful! 

It is hard to describe the feeling I have right now as I look at the Kickstarter page and see the number of backers that have come together to support this project. It is a mixture of approval, inspiration, and relief all combined. Sort of like this (my kids love the minions):

Thanks you all so much!

Missed the Kickstarter Campaign? We will continue to accept pre-orders here.

Kickstarter Stats

For those curious on how we did on Kickstarter.

  • Funded in 1.5 hours!
  • Total Funding reached 2,498% (over 3x the last project)
  • 5,249 Total Backers (almost 3x the last project)
  • 311 new Kickstarter members. Welcome to the platform. I hope you find other wonderful projects to support.

What's Next?

First, Kickstarter will collect your funds and transfer them over to us (this can take up to two weeks).

Second, we need to collect your information to know where to ship rewards to. For this we will use the BackerKit "pledge manage" to confirm your pledge, upgrade your tier, add additional loot, provide your shipping address, confirm your shipping charge, and distribute digital downloads. Our goal is to have it ready in about 2 weeks.  We’ll give you a heads-up before we send the survey so that you can watch for it.  Make sure that the email on your Kickstarter profile is accurate, and that you monitor your junk/promotions inboxes to be assured that you don't miss the email.  If you have AppleID, but haven't completely set up your Apple Pay account (linking your email address to your Apple Wallet), you will have issues receiving your emails from BackerKit. Please address this now. We will follow up in our next update.

In the meantime, continue to play the 2021 Quest Calendar and send us your suggestions for changes and improvements using this link.

Ongoing Updates

It is almost customary for project creators to take a break after a successful campaign. However, we have a lot of work to do. We will still celebrate tonight, but then we will jump right back into moving this project forward. 

We love sharing updates on the project and will happily be doing so over the course of the year. We will start the next one by letting you know our development timeline, naming the Ne'crow'mancer, and showing off any product samples we get.

Stay in the Loop

Remember, you didn't just buy a product, you joined a community of other adventurers.  Most communication from us will be through project updates here, but we are also available and monitor these other social media channels:

Cover Art, Title, Video, Markers
over 1 year ago – Thu, Mar 25, 2021 at 09:24:36 PM

The Gates of Terralon

Years of war and turmoil caused the Gods to separate their worlds from one another, but this did not stop the fighting. The demon's were dealt a devastating blow when their gate was destroyed. The consequences were unexpected. Now, demons pour forth and spill into other worlds, wrecking havoc across existence. 

Elsewhere in Terralon, the King's Festival approaches. Many come from afar to compete in the yearly tournament. The title of Lord, and the riches and land which accompany said title, can be won in this competition. Even the poorest commoners has a chance at glory.

Will you compete in the tournament at the King's Festival and earn the title of Lord? Can you stop the demon invasion and prevent the collapse of all worlds?

Cover Art

Here is the official cover art and title we will be using for the box of the 2022 Quest Calendar. It is a lot more colorful that "The Dragon Staff of Maladoria". What do you think?

Artist: Ellen

Here we see the World Watcher, symbolically protecting the gates that connect the different worlds of Terralon. I really loved this piece and how it encompasses the idea of traveling between the worlds. We might not get all the campaign images changed to feature this cover art before the Kickstarter ends. We will try to change the campaign images you see to include this cover art instead of the 2021 Art.

Cover Art Video

I personally enjoy getting to see art in the process of getting created. I don't know why I do, bit I find it soothing and inspirational. I enjoy it so much, that I wanted to share with you a video of how this piece was created. Thanks to Ellen, the artist, for supplying the intermediate steps that I was able to string together for the video. Check it out:

Markers

We have had some feedback and done testing that has revealed that dry-erase markers are not ideal for the Hero Book.

There is smearing on the Hero Books that doesn't wipe off easily when Dry-Erase markers are used. They wipe off easily when erased on the same day, but when you leave it for some time, it becomes harder to erase. The marks can be somewhat erased better with water. This led us to the idea of  wet-erase markers instead. The water does not harm the pages and leaves no mark as far as we have seen.

For better performance, and to prevent damaging the book with smears, we are considering switching to wet-erase markers. We understand it is not as convenient as having a built in eraser. And unfortunately it will cause you to need water and a napkin. However, we are confident that it will be a better experience overall.

What is your opinion? Are you ok with this change? If you have the 2021 Hero Book, have you experienced this issue?

Over 100k, Elementalist, Q&A
over 1 year ago – Tue, Mar 23, 2021 at 10:14:40 PM

According to Kickstarter statistics, we part of less than 4% of successful projects that raise over $100k. This is all because of you. Thank you so much for this success.

We still have over a week to go and we are already almost double the funding from 2021 ($61,402). With your help, I believe we could see the number of backers double from the 2021 year (1,791). So please share this with your friends and family!


The Elementalist

Meet the Professor. He comes from a race of half-dragons which are normally driven by instinct to physical aggressiveness. This leads to many judgements based on his appearance alone. However, Trynnicus has pursued a life of knowledge acquisition and uses that for the betterment of his life and others.  That knowledge has also given him access to powerful magics that allow him to control the elements.  Trynnicus will use the destructive powers of fire and lightning to defend himself if necessary. The utility of wind and earth help him to shape the world, and the healing properties of water help lend aid when needed.

What's Next?

We have the art piece we will be using for the cover of the calendar.  We are a bit ahead of schedule here and I will reveal it with the next update. I want to get that cool progress video together that we did for the the 2021 Quest Calendar, as well.  

Q&A (AMA)

I would love to answer all your questions and connect with you better. So I am using this post as a place for an AMA (ask me anything) thread.
Please comment below with any questions you have about me, Sundial Games, other games, and anything else on your mind, especially non-Quest Calendar related.

I love hearing from you. Perhaps you want to know what running a Kickstarter is like? What games I play with my family and kids? Or if I would rather fight 100 duck sized horses or 1 horse sized duck.
If you still have Quest Calendar questions, please ask those on the main campaign thread for everyone to read.

Last Unlocks, The Cleric, Name the Hero
over 1 year ago – Fri, Mar 19, 2021 at 01:34:06 PM

Wow, just Wow! 

Happy St. Patrick's day everyone! I'm also going to celebrate all of you backers for everything you have helped us achieve! (from home of course) 

I might actually dance like this.

More unlocked

It is hard to keep up with stretch goals. You have unlocked the dice tower upgrade, and so we added the Dice Tray upgrade. I really think these two will compliment each other well. I can't wait to get production samples to share with you.

Also, this is likely our last stretch goal. As much as we want to do more for you, we have to be aware of our limitations. Our primary focus is on getting a great story and gameplay. We have been warned that many Kickstarter projects fail simply because they aim to do too much. And there is already so much to do in so little time. I hope you understand.


Meet the Cleric

Sir Gareth Stalworth may be a worthy hero.  He has a lot to prove and this journey will test him beyond his expectations. He will have high armor and decent combat abilities, but his true power rests in his connection to Thilos, the god of Life.  Though he may take many hits in battle, he will have access to divine magic, giving him the ability to heal and restore his own health and push himself to the limits. A big shield and sword help, too. However, he may lose the favor of Thilos if he becomes corrupt. 

Name the Hero

Last year when we unlocked the paladin character, we opened up the community to suggest names for him and then let everyone vote. It went really well and we had a great time. This year, we are doing the same with this Hero, our Avian Necromancer.

So, please begin with your suggestions by commenting below on this update. We will select our favorites and post a survey in the near future. This will be fun!

My wife didn't like my idea of MaCAWlay CAWlkin. What do you think?

Holidays, Swashbuckler, Character Sheet
over 1 year ago – Tue, Mar 16, 2021 at 04:40:41 PM

You did it again!, you unlocked another stretch goal. We will remake the 6 main heroes from 2021 (Bard, Druid, Barbarian, Sorceress, Paladin, Thief) into the new Character Sheets. However, these will only be available for download. We will not be printing them in another hero book. We don't believe the demand for them may be high enough.

We have also revealed the latest and the last stretch goal we had planned. We didn't expect so much success and are looking into other stretch goal ideas.

Holidays

A calendar's function is also to remind you about holidays. We never thought too much about holidays until we began producing this.  For the 2021 year, we looked at the traditional holidays for the US and other major countries we are shipping to. It didn't occur to use to consider other important dates that aren't typically listed. We would like to have you be part of this. 

Please feel free to submit to us the holidays you wish to be acknowledged in the 2022 Quest Calendar:

Meet Azmyra

 Another character to introduce. This one is my personal favorite.

Artist: Jay French

Azmyra (as-mir-a), a name meaning "lucky" is very fitting for her. She is a combination between a Bard and a Rogue/Thief. A bit reckless of course, but always with style. She won't have access to magic like a bard, but will still be ever as much influential with people. And, she know how to wield her rapier like no other, which will give her powerful combat abilities to take down her foes.

I could not be more proud of how she turned out.

The Character Sheets

Here is a better look at the character sheets designed by the artist, Giovanni Spadaro.  I wanted to give you a good look at what one will look like. This is not final for Azmyra, though. 

  • Each hero will have their own color scheme.
  • The Abilities are marked with a combat or non-Combat icon for reference.
  • The original stat #s which can be overwritten are off to the side
  • The icons will be lighter and more transparent for easier writing over top of them.
  • The icons for attack, damage, armor, health, will also be used in the combat summary.
