Update 12 - Surveys on their way! STL distribution set for Monday!

Happy New Year! And to kick off 2020, we have gotten the final approvals for the Backerkit surveys, which will be arriving today and tomorrow!
This means all surveys will be in backer inboxes by this weekend! From there, I will give everyone a few days to respond, complete their pledge process, and begin locking in all the completed surveys. On Monday, January 6, after doing a final lock and review, I will launch the distribution core set, and the files will go out as a direct download!
NOTE: If you can't get to your survey in time this weekend, do not worry! I will continually lock in surveys as they arrive over the following days and weeks, and continue to distribute files on a regular basis if you are late getting your survey completed. I will also send out reminders each week through Backerkit.
All files are going to be in .rar format and will need to be unpacked either with WinRAR or WinZip software. Each pack will include all of the STLs needed for each terrain set.
In addition, Holy Knight pledges, please review the included link that will be in your survey. This is how voting will begin for unlocked stretch goals. If you do not see your exact idea, it means I have included it to the best of my ability in a general theme. I have a word document with everyone's individual ideas, in addition to the email responses, but in order to do the voting, I had to combine as many as I could.
For example, graveyards, catacombs and crypts are all very similar, so they have been combined. Other examples included an alchemist library and lost library, or house of knowledge, these were all very similar, so I combined them into a single idea. Other examples were jungle ruins, which were combined with Mesoamerican and Mayan and Aztec themed pieces.
For those who provided general design ideas, for example including basements, or working in multiple layers, or elevation on pieces, those are going to be taken into account for everything voted on.
I want to do my very best to make some beautiful pieces for the stretch goals, and I hope everyone feels their voice has been heard in this voting process. I am also open to discussion, ideas, photographic references and more, so if you have something for me, please shoot me an email or direct message!
Thank you so much for your support! Please let me know if you have any questions, and I will help you any way I can!

Update 10 - Late Pledge Open Preorder and Backer Surveys
12 months ago
– Fri, Dec 20, 2019 at 11:18:33 AM
I just have a brief update for everyone today. The Backerkit Service is now live for late pledges at https://forsakenlands.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders. In addition, surveys and Ranger's Pass options are in the system and will be ready to go once all backer emails are sent within the two week period.
I'll have more information on that upcoming process very soon, and will be available to help everyone from every pledge level complete their survey in order to get ready for the file distribution day!
As for the preliminary surveys sent to Holy Knights, I have already received more than 200 responses and a few emails with photos and sketches as of this morning! Thank you all for taking the time to get me started on stretch goal preparation. Currently, I am reading through each one and creating a list to be used for voting! Now is a perfect time to get to planning as we wait for distribution and surveys to go out.
There are some really exciting ideas, everything from graveyards and halfling houses to alchemist libraries and monolithic ruins! Thank you all for your patience ahead of distribution; I hope you have a wonderful holiday season and will have more to share very soon!
Update 9 - Thank you, backers! Forsaken Lands Campaign Close and Backerkit Launch

Your generous support has helped make this campaign an outstanding success, and words can not express the gratitude I have for each and every one of you! Three Backers' Roulette Stretch goals have been unlocked, and preliminary surveys for all Holy Knights are on their way! While the core set Kickstarter journey is coming to its close, there is still much more adventure ahead!
As a special thank you to everyone who backed, I have a surprise give away, a bonus item I am throwing in for fun, that I think everyone will enjoy! It will appear as part of your digital download set, but is not officially listed in this campaign!
The biggest thing to expect in the two week waiting period ahead of core set distribution will be the Backerkit service going live. If you are a Holy Knight pledge, you will receive a preliminary survey though Kickstarter if you want to start putting in suggestions!
A preorder page will launch for late backers, but for Kickstarter campaign backers, there will a future update with some more information to accompany the survey launch to get everything finalized for distribution.
NOTE: Pledges can be changed as well for those who were interested. Ranger's Pass Pledges will have access to all of the model sets on an individual basis, or an upgrade to Holy Knight and the Backers' Roulette stretch goals!
Thank you all so much for your support of my artistic pursuits! I am super excited to get these files out to everyone, and start work modeling your creative ideas with the Backers' Roulette!
Hope you all have a wonderful night; I will have more to share very soon!

A quick update today with some exciting news! As of right now there are less than 36 hours remaining in the campaign, and another stretch goal level has been unlocked for the Backers' Roulette!
This means a third, additional terrain set will be included for all Holy Knight pledges based on survey suggestions and votes!
Also, just a small note since the campaign is closing, if you have any very time sensitive, or important questions for me in the final hours of the campaign, please send me an email directly at ArchangelDesign3D at Gmail.com for the fastest response time! These go directly to my phone, so I can get back to you as soon as possible.
I have the preliminary surveys ready for all Holy Knight pledges for stretch goal suggestions, but feel free to share your ideas in the comments to discuss with other party members! Thank you all so much for your support!
