How do I get BOTH books?

With Kickstarter’s add-ons!

After you select your tier, you will be prompted to select add-ons to add to your pledge! Among these add-ons are the books on their own, and you can add whichever book you didn’t pledge for (and other fun goodies)!

If you’ve already pledged, to adjust your add-ons: * click “Manage your pledge” * click “Change your pledge” * select the tier you want by clicking “Pledge $___” * click “Add” for each add-on you want!

If you don’t see any physical add-ons, then the tier you picked lacks physical rewards and can not add physical add-ons.

I got the Chapter 1 & 2 hardcover from the Chapter 3 Kickstarter. Will you be releasing a Chapter 3 & 4 hardcover?

Unfortunately, due to the costs of printing, as well as what constitutes a “chunk” of story in Tamberlane, we are moving to a per-arc hardcover instead of every 2 chapters. That 1&2 hardcover was meant to be a special treat for that Kickstarter. It’s not ideal for those who backed that Kickstarter, we know! And I’m so sorry about that. But we’re doing our best to make the Arc 1 hardcover totally worth the money. If you opt to not back this Kickstarter because of that, I totally understand!

As for what the Omnibus includes, there is quite a bit of behind-the-scenes bonus content in the 1&2 Hardcover that will not be carried over to the Omnibus, so that printing will have some content that is unique to it! The Omnibus will include all of Chapters 1-4, as well as some old bonus content combined with (mostly) new content, such as exclusive annotations, a couple of bonus stories, etc!

From here on out, as far as we are aware, we will be printing only softbounds of each chapter, and Omnibuses (Omnibi?) every 4 Chapters, most likely!

Will the edited pages done for the omnibus edition ever be made available to the public?

Absolutely! When the page edits are complete, we will be releasing them on the website for free, replacing the old pages.

Will the omnibus and book 4 be available after the campaign?

Assuming the campaign is successful, yes! The amount of copies we can print in bulk will depend on the amount the campaign earns, but assuming it is successful we will be offering copies of the Arc 1 Omnibus and Book 4 (while supplies last) in the Tamberlane store. These will not be made available until Kickstarter supporters have received their copies!

You say the Arc 1 Omnibus has "annotations." What are "annotations"?

When we were planning the Arc 1 Omnibus, we wanted to include something celebratory to reflect on the development of the story from Books 1 through 4, and while we could have simply included some behind the scenes sketches and maybe an essay or two, we thought that having a more in depth discussion between the co-authors would provide more insightful and rewarding commentary. The annotations are, as a result, a rather lengthy back and forth between the authors discussing the development, writing, and artwork in the comic, as well as providing some funny stories and tidbits about the edits and challenges we faced compiling this version of the story! Keep in mind that the annotations are exclusive to the Arc 1 Omnibus!

BackerKit FAQ

What is BackerKit?

BackerKit is a service that crowdfunded project creators use to keep track of hundreds to tens of thousands of backers—from shipping details, pledge levels, preferences and quantities, whether they have paid or had their card declined, special notes, and everything in between!

The BackerKit software and support team is independent from the campaign’s project team—BackerKit does not handle the actual reward shipping. For more information about the preparation or delivery status of your rewards, please check the project's updates page.

How does BackerKit work?

After the campaign ends, the project creator will send you an email with a unique link to your survey. You can check out a walkthrough of the process here.

I never received my invitation. How do I complete the survey?

The most common reasons for not receiving a survey email is that you may be checking an email inbox different from the email address you used to sign up with Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account, or it may be caught in your spam filter.

Confirm that the email address you are searching matches the email address tied to your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Tilt Pro account. If that doesn’t work, then try checking your spam, junk or promotions folders. You can also search for "backerkit” in your inbox.

To resend the survey to yourself, visit the project page and input the email address associated with your Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account.

How do I update my shipping address?

BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the shipping addresses are locked by the project creator. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.

When will my order be shipped, charged or locked?

That is handled directly by the project creator. BackerKit functions independently of the project itself, so we do not have control of their physical shipping timeline. If you want to check on the project’s status, we recommend reading over the project's updates page.

I completed the survey, but haven't received my rewards yet. When will they arrive?

As BackerKit does not actually handle any rewards or shipping, the best way to stay updated on the shipping timeline would be to check out the project's updates page.
