    Ooo... Does this mean the return of the sketch artist (and more of his "horrible" sketches?) Even if doesn't, I greatly approve the selection of the keyst.. err.. cliffport cops.

    Yes, a subsequent meeting between her and Durkon could get interesting. Or with her and her former companions

    Wow. Fantastic drive, and great choices for the stories.

    Regarding credit cards:

    I have three kickstarter accounts for the same card. The first transaction was no problem, the second and third didn't work. So I contacted my bank and it turns out an automatic algorithm prevented the other payments on the basis that two transactions in a very short time to the same recipient may indicate some fraud. They fixed it, and I could then confirm the payments at kickstarter / amazon again. Phew.

    So if anyone else has a problem with multiple accounts where only the first one worked, talk to your bank, it may be the same issue.

    Another topic: in Germany we have to pay import tax on goods from the US. If there is no bill on the outside of the package, it will be delivered to a customs office, which is just some bother (especially if the packages don't arrive all at the same time). If there is no bill at all, we have to present our own to the customs officer. The only thing we have is the confirmation mails with the whole amount pledged, which could be significantly higher than what the goods are actually worth (some rewards are mainly delivered electronically, too).

    So, if possible, it would be nice if the people at Oookoodook who make the packages include a bill not about the amount pledged, but about the things delivered in the package. It would be extremely nice if that bill was on the outside of the package so it can be directly delivered to the recipient.

    Funny, I can remember seeing the reward for the first time and thinking, "Man, it would be awesome if someone chose the CPD Chief for that."

    Who's the mindreader who picked that?

    EDIT: No, if you chose it and see this, you don't actually have to tell me.

I do need to get proofs done for the coloring book, but that's going to the top of my list of work as a result.

    If there's any change in that expectation, I'll announce it via the Updates.

    I'm one of the people who created multiple kickstarter accounts in order to select multiple reward packages. One of my rewards is the deluxe game, and the other is more books than can fit in the same box with the game, so I figured this would be easier than messaging Rich about a custom package for the folks managing all this stuff and wouldn't cost me any extra shipping because it would have to go in two boxes anyway. Plus, I made the decision to actually go for it after the announced cut-off point for such messages.

    My question is this: My total pledge amount is $250, enough to qualify for a free art print, but neither individual pledge is high enough. If I mention this fact in the survey, with corroborating information, could I get a free art print because of my combined total? I figure I'd give identical physical addresses in my survey responses, and in one of them I'd mention the other email address and ask about the art print.

    I've had a confirmation email from Amazon telling me the payment succeeded, but no money has been taken from my bank account yet.

    Should I be worried or is that normal?

    Will be interesting to see how Rich angles this story as, to quote his preface in Origins: '... some characters demand a backstory to explain why they act the way they do, and others would be ruined by it. Do we really want to know why Belkar is so psychotic?'

    Excellent point. I second that, it would save a great deal of trouble (I don't even know where the nearest customs office is...)

    Never expected to have an entire response that would be spoilered, but...

    I'd imagine that it wouldn't explore why Belkar is psychotic, but rather just a little plotline where he has Belkarian fun. So slashies and bloodshed, maybe some slavers, and delightful evil (with a little e) all around.


    Of course, I'm not the author, and could be completely off-base on the direction of it, but that's what I'm expecting. A fun story by an awesome storyteller.

    It's normal for transactions not to show up instantly. The two Kickstarter transactions I had yesterday didn't post to my credit card until today.

    So how are the numerous PDFs going to work? Are we going to get them e-mailed to the email address we provided to Kickstarter, are they going to be printed out and sent with the rest of the package (unlikely)? Is someone who only pledged 35$ only going to get the O-chul one?

    Both of my transactions for both accounts have made it through fine on my bank account. I called them on Tuesday though to let them know the charges would be coming through because they were unusual and because I had to call them to get the payment for my laptop through since it wasn't a usual charge.

    I'm looking forward to the goodies throughout the year. It'll make it fun to suddenly receive them. I also already know what Order of the Stick character I want a crayon drawing of.

    Surely as 'Belkar will draw his last breath' this year his further adventures without the OotS will be as Belkar the loveable lich king or some other form of undead?

    And in saying this I really hope I haven't shot Rich's fox.

    They'll be sent by email, and it's all-or-nothing but not necessarily all at once. Any pledge of at least $10 gets EVERY pdf, but as per this post, Rich will be releasing each one individually when he finishes it.

    When I first noticed the drive, I saw it had around sixty thousand bucks in it; and I thought that was pretty awesome. Then a few days later, I checked the drive again, saw it had more then a four hundred-thousand dollars, and my mind was blown.
    Congrats Giant, this is proof you have the greatest webcomic in existence.

    Also, why do I have this suspicion the Cliffport Cops story will be a spoof of Dirty Harry? Because that would be really, really, awesome.

    Trust me, you're not going to bother me if you take your time! I may ask as early as next week, but if you don't answer right away, I'll just work on other people's drawings until you do.
    Thanks again for the drive Rich! I don't think I've had so much fun trying to spend money in a long time - and the drive closed the day before my birthday, which made the rewards more like a present :)

    One thing I was wondering about / hoping for regarding the crayon drawings: Is there any chance that you'd keep digital representations of them when they're done (scans or whatnot)? It might be extra work on your end (but hopefully not too much more), but it would be awesome to see them all collected in one place, whether here or in a future book.

    If there is any issue of permission, maybe people could be asked if they are willing to have their drawing included when the surveys are emailed out?

    Just a thought, but in any case thanks again and congratulations on the drive!

    Just so everyone knows: While I will try to check in and talk with you guys, this thread is not the best place to get direct answers to your order-specific questions, especially if they need my personal attention. For that, try using the KS messaging system. That is not only more likely to get my attention, it lets me look at your order at the same time that I'm reading, making it much easier for me to know what's going on.

    If you're asking general questions (like "Did anyone else get their survey yet?" or "Should I be worried yet about this or that?" then go ahead and ask away.

    Sounds good, although personally I would've liked a story about Horace Greenhilt and the green dragon of Reddragonsville.

    Also, for those of us that used multiple accounts to get several pledges, is there any way to have the survey sent to a different email? I can't use the same email for two accounts, and I never actually check the second one I used, so I'm afraid I might not find the survey for a while (as it's a patience package).

    No, that will be up to the people who receive them. I've gotten indication that some of them will involve private jokes or references (because they're being given as gifts or whatever), so it would be an invasion of their privacy for me to post them online.

    I'm guessing the Cliffport Cops will be fun for you - can we expect some sort of cop show parody?

    , and a pre-Order Belkar story.
    Looks like someone did in fact manage to corner you into writing the sort of story you'd really rather not have written (though not to the extent of, say, Right-Eye's daughter)...

    I'm just glad no one picked something like GwaH.

    Thumbs up Re: The Post-Kickstarter Discussion Thread: Bask in the Afterglow

    I just stumbled upon the ks drive by luck.

    From time to time I was looking to complete my oots book collection and now I am hit with books, stickers, badges, drawing books, games and much much more.

    And because everything is split on different accounts I will have this year numerous x-mas times.

    Thanks Rich

    This crazy ks drive made me really happy, hope you had as much fun as I did :)

    No, the survey is automatically generated by KS; I can't control what email it goes to. On the plus side, KS also notifies you when you log in if you have any surveys waiting for you, so you could just wait until you get the Update that says, "Hey, Patience surveys are going out," then log in to check.
