A RATHER SOMBER UPDATE

Hey everyone, it turns out I was wrong.
We are currently at 973 for the HOUSE OF RATH CULTEST EDITION upgrade. That means 27 more can be sold before we lock it down. If you want it, you better get it now, because it is sadly getting made.
Of course, it's getting made at the cost of my faith in our backers, but oh well. Jesse is happy and I clearly can't stop crying.
Congratulations on being more deplorable than I imagined!

HOUSE OF RATH PLEDGE MANAGER
25 days ago
– Sun, Oct 04, 2020 at 11:22:42 PM
BackerKit surveys are coming!
We are starting the pledge manager process today, so you’ll soon receive an email from us with a special link to your BackerKit survey. It’s important to respond to your survey as quickly as you can since we need this information to fulfill your rewards. We will send about 10% of the surveys this morning as a way to make sure there are no issues. After we get enough responses and no glaring mistakes are found, we'll send the rest, so you should all receive the survey by the end of day.
As a reminder, we did not collect any shipping fees during the campaign, so this is where those fees will be assessed once you submit your address. This is also where you'll make choices such as which add-ons you'd like or whether you'd like to upgrade to the Cultist version. We realize this is probably a terrible time for many of you financially, so even though you will be supplying your credit card information, no charges will be run until January 15, 2021. We are giving an option for PayPal as well, but these charges will immediately be assessed when you complete your survey. So be mindful if you want to delay the charge, PayPal may not be the best option. To restate this because I feel it's important:
Credit cards will be charged JANUARY15, 2021.
PAYPAL willbe charged IMMEDIATELY.
YOU ALREADY HAVE ITEMS IN YOUR CART!
Please keep in mind that your pledge already has the items that were associated with the varying tiers you pledged for during Kickstarter. For example, if you pledged for the MAJORING IN MINOR MURDER tier in Kickstarter, the HOUSE OF RATH game is already in your cart, so don't add another unless you actually want two.
For those of you that may be at the $1 level (or any level for that matter) and want to switch pledge levels, you can still do so at the beginning of the process. It's not as obvious as I would like it to be, but you can do so by clicking the SWITCH YOUR PLEDGE LEVEL link below the GET STARTED button. That said, you can still order anything you'd like from the $1 level as well.
HOUSE OF RATH: CULTIST VERSION
For those of you interested in the CULTIST VERSION with the mask, fate card and special box, this is being treated as an Add-On. You will need the original HOUSE OF RATH game PLUS this option in your cart. We will only be producing this if we get at least 500 orders, so don't get your hopes too high. If we do manage to get enough orders, your version of the game will be switched to include these items with the new box. You will NOT be getting the original box or a second game. If we fail to hit the 500 order mark, the $15 will be refunded and you'll get the original HOUSE OF RATH game.
You don’t need to create a BackerKit account to fill out your survey. When you receive the email with the survey, click the survey link to respond. Answer the questions about your reward preferences, provide shipping information, and purchase add-on items if you like. You don’t have access to this survey link yet, but it will be available soon via email! After you respond to your survey, you can go back later and change your responses at any time before we close the surveys and get our final counts.
In other gaming news...
ADVANCED D6 STARTER CLASS
For those of you that own D6 or are interested in D6, this is for you!
The ADVANCED D6 STARTER CLASS is now available for pre-order in the HOUSE OF RATH pledge manager (as well as other Certifiable games). If you are interested, make sure you scroll down in the Add-Ons to order. It will be manufactured alongside and delivered with this campaign.
We hope everyone is healthy and safe! Thanks for all the amazing support!

THE FINAL COUNT!
about 2 months ago
– Fri, Sep 11, 2020 at 12:40:40 AM
The campaign is over and Count Rath is very happy! Which, of course, means many orphans are not. Most importantly, you can count us in the happy column, because we have the best backers on Kickstarter! Now it's time to finalize everything and go into production.
We expect the pledge manager for you to make any changes, add items or simply pay for shipping to release around October 1st. For those of you interested in the Cultist upgrade, you'll have the chance to add it at that point. If your credit card didn't go through due to an error when Kickstarter charged for your pledge, don't fret. You'll still be able to update your information over the coming days.
In the meantime, feel free to waste more of your hard earned money with us by going to our Certifiable Studios web store. Jesse and Brent just got some swag in for themselves.
The poster issues have been addressed, so we are looking forward to getting the new ones in soon. Check out the store and you can see what else is available.

Hey everyone! We are well into our last 24 hours!
So...we are soon going to find out who the joke is on regarding this House of Rath Cultist Edition interest. Is Jesse right in thinking we'll have plenty of orders, or am I (this is Rick, btw) correct in thinking it won't be quite as coveted as the vocal minority suggests? I am not saying we aren't going to reach our minimum order (although that really wouldn't surprise me), but I will be shocked if we actually get a thousand orders. Once the campaign is wrapped tomorrow morning at 10am CDT, I will be providing a link on the page to allow for late pledges. The question has been whether it would be acceptable to put the Cultist upgrade as an option for those late orders, or would it create havoc for the six or seven of you that have been wanting it from the beginning and won't have a chance to claim it until October 1st (when the pledge manager will be released). To be clear, even by putting it on the late pledge store it won't sell more than a few, because it's really just for those that didn't get to their computer in time to commit. But in the event we actually have more than a thousand orders, our commitment will remain with the KS backers during the campaign. So no reason to panic or hate us. Well...not for that reason at least.
As mentioned in the video, we sadly lost all the pips on the die. Sorry. The new die will have the actual numbers etched in. Here is the video in case you missed it. WARNING: For those of you with pupaphobia, DO NOT WATCH. The image on the thumbnail says it all.
We'll go live on Twitch in a few hours for a live Q&A.Join us at 5pm CDT!!
Thanks for all your help in making this another great campaign!
