Happy Holidays Backers!
We hope you got a chance to take a break yesterday, to enjoy sometime with friends and family. Maybe even sneaked in a game or two.
Pledge Manager Update
The team has been working hard behind the scenes getting the Pledge Manager all together. In order to have it all finished, we had to finalize boxes and work with our fulfillment centers to go over quantities in each shipping hub. The good news is we are all finished and we will be testing out the Pledge Manager internally next week to make sure there are no bugs.
The Pledge Manager will be officially open on December 3rd!
We will leave the Pledge Manager open into next year, through January.
On December 3rd you will receive an email with a link to the Pledge Manager on Backerkit. From there you will be able to log in and see the amount you pledged. You will then be able to pick exactly what you want and finalize shipping.
Rough Stone Floors Remastered
We are going through every piece before the metal molds are created, to make final tweaks to improve detail so they look amazing when injection molded. With the Rough Stone Floors we wanted to push the depth even more, and create more texture to the stone. Here is a photo the finalized Rough Stone E Floor texture, it almost paints its self now!

Building the Pledge Manager

Good evening everyone,
This week we started building the Pledge Manager. As you can imagine there is a lot involved in getting all the SKUs and weights for each pledge, add-on, and unlocked stretch goal. The team will be working on this the rest of the month, with the goal of sending out invites to the Pledge Manager mid November.
Once in the Pledge Manager, the amount you spent on the Kickstarter will be listed as credit to your account. From there you will be able to make changes to your pledge, select add-on's, calculate shipping, and finalize your order. We have not set an official close date for the Pledge Manager, but we will try and leave it open for a good amount of time so people can add in more as requested by many backers.
We will keep you up to date on the production of Rampage with photos as we get more into the molding and and injection process.
Have a great gaming weekend!

What an amazing month, and man, the last few days... Just wow!
We want to thank you all for helping us bring Rampage to life. Without all of you, all the hard work that was put into this project would be for nothing. It was great to see how helpful the community can be, by helping each other out with questions or building complete spreadsheets and sharing them for everyone to use. A Big Thank You!
Now that the craziness of the Kickstarter is finished, we move on to the next chapter of the Rampage Journey. The team will start building the Pledge Manager with every item that was unlocked. Each item be assigned a SKU, so that it will calculate shipping based on your order. Once we have the Pledge Manager complete, you will receive an email with an invite to log into the PM. When you log in, you will see credit for the amount you pledged. Its just like an online store, you will be able to use that credit to pick each pledge and item you want. You will also be able to add more items if you would like. Once you have it all picked out you can check out and it will calculate your shipping and charge for it and any other additional items you picked. We are estimating the Pledge Manager will be up mid November.
From a production stand point, we had already started making some of the molds before the Kickstarter launched. So we will continue that process and get all the molds completed. We will keep you up to date here as that process progresses.
We would like to say a special thank you to the following people:
Matt Rauscher aka @The_Pickled_Dragon, for your support from the beginning. You are an amazing writer and it has been great to work with you. Lord Longcloud chapter 2 anyone? hint hint
Dan Masucci aka @Inkdmage, for your enthusiasm in Rampage. You saw what Rampage could become right away, and helped spread the love. Donny in KS2?
@Nouralogical for you Kick ass unboxing and review of the prototype pieces! Very spontaneous and unexpected, but very grateful on our end.
Ed Pugh from Reaper Miniature for the sound advice and insight in this wild industry. Thank you for your time we know you are a busy man!
Jonas Faering from The Army Painter for supplying us with paint and spending your time to point us in the right direction with retail.
Lester Bursley for your amazing eye and painting skills, you are an inspiration.
Gary Ray from Black Diamond Games in Concord California, for your advice on the retail side of the business and use of the store.
I personally would like to thank the Printable Scenery team out of Wellington, New Zealand, Jo, Sam, Bruce, and Matt. For their tireless hours put into this before and during the Kickstarter. You guys designed an amazingly beautiful and large product line with Rampage! I hope this first Kickstarter did it justice for you, the next one will be even larger!
We will be on everyday at some point on this KS even thou it has ended. So feel free to ask question and they will get answered. We will also keep you updated on a regular basis with the progress of the Fulfillment. Our goal is to get this out to you ASAP, but without any compromise to quality.
Good night folks its time to get a little rest.
The future is bright!
