April 2019 Update
about 2 months ago – Wed, Apr 24, 2019 at 06:14:03 PM

Hey Drylanders,

We're in the final week of April, so it's time for our regularly scheduled month end status report.

I'll post our list of delivered and pending rewards with each monthly update, so that we can track everything that's needed and keep on the same page. Also, feel free to check out Onyx Path's Monday Meeting Notes posts (linked here) which will give you a weekly status report on ALL of the projects Onyx Path has on the go (you may see spoilers for my monthly updates, or see what other kickstarter campaigns are currently running). 

Your regular BackerKit reminder. 92% have reviewed their pledges and filled out their surveys, so this is just for that remaining 8%, or those who need to update their information (which you'll be able to do right up until the book is ready to ship!)

If you need to review your information or pledge status, you can return to your survey by clicking the link in your survey email or requesting your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our BackerKit project page at https://they-came-from-beneath-the-sea.backerkit.com

If you have another email address that you prefer to use, please contact support at  https://they-came-from-beneath-the-sea.backerkit.com/faq 

If you have any other questions or concerns, you can post them to the comments for this update, the comment section, or contact the team via the Contact Creator link on the kickstarter page and Rich will forward it to me.

REWARD DELIVERY: KICKSTARTER T-SHIRT LINK

Think back... way back... to the time during the campaign we were smashing Stretch Goals and unlocking rewards? Remember that? Fun times! Well, thinking back to one reward in particular...

Yeah, we unlocked that one! And - TODAY is the day that reward gets fulfilled!

Brother and sister backers! What a family!
Brother and sister backers! What a family!

One of our Stretch Goals during the kickstarter campaign was a special discounted-for-a-limited-time Kickstarter Backer THEY CAME FROM BENEATH THE SEA! T-shirt.

If you click over to Onyx Path's REDBUBBLE T-shirt Shop you will see this THEY CAME FROM BENEATH THE SEA! T-shirt, which will be available at a discounted price for a LIMITED TIME ONLY! You have ONE WEEK to order this shirt if you'd like to face some squid-lovers in style! 

If you scroll down a bit, you'll see other options - including hoodies and other styles - you can change the style, color, and size to make sure it works for you! Changing the style and size may change the cost, so be aware. Make sure you review your selection before you process payment to ensure you've got the correct images, style, color, and size. 

One last time: This shirt will be available for a LIMITED TIME ONLY - please act quickly if you're interested!


And, just a reminder to confirm your rewards in your BackerKit survey, if you haven't done so already.

February 2019 Update
4 months ago – Thu, Feb 28, 2019 at 06:56:35 PM

Hello Drylanders,

We're about to start getting into the regular rhythm of month-end status updates. It's a pretty involved and dynamic process, creating these books, so I want to ensure that I have constant and consistent communication with all backers. Each month, I'll be providing a status update for our rewards (usually nothing more complicated than "delivered" or "pending"), as well as sharing information about this project and other Onyx Path projects where possible. 

Many of these updates will be similar - these projects take a fair amount of time to build, and some stages are multi-part processes, so a book in "Development"may not show incremental updates in our monthly summary, but there's always forward progress being made.

It's James, your point person for this kickstarter campaign.

 And, just a reminder to confirm your rewards in your BackerKit survey, if you haven't done so already.

Gentleman Sea Captain's Guides

This is also a great space to share the latest, super-informative guides from our Gentleman Sea Captain himself, Matthew Dawkins. Following on the guide to Aquatepillars and Brain-Eater Eels that were shared back in Update # 33 (check it out!), we've got some more important broadcasts...
