Leather Design Update
I'm super pleased with how these came out! I can't wait to put them in boxes for you all to use. I've got a bunch more leather to cut and deliver to my silk screener, but this finally is at a level of quality and readability that I'm happy with.
Colonial Maple boxes progress
I'm finished with the staining of the Colonial Maple boxes and am moving along with clear coating them. I'll have them done this week and will be starting up on the Sedona Red color next. The quantity for both is about the same, so I expect I'll have the Sedona Red finished just as fast as the Colonial Maples.
I have these coming by boat within a month and a half as a backup. It would take me longer than that to stain all the orders for this color anyways, so I plan on doing the rest of the manufacturing for the internals of everything before I start hand staining these so that when they arrive it will be a quick process to fill them with the requests and ship them.
Thanks for all of your confidence and trust in me and I appreciate your patience throughout this project. I'm really glad to have such supportive backers!

I was able to ship all the basic and starter potion kits out Monday. but...
I messed up the scrolls on the starter kits
When I had the artists create this design, the content wasn't what they were concerned with. Along the way, I've fixed the text and font styles many times on different pieces of artwork. I thought I had already fixed the text on this piece as all the fonts were already correct when I opened it up to get ready to print them. Well, long story short, I never double checked them for correctness, and merrily went my way printing, cutting, wrapping, and then shipping them. I only was made aware of my blunder yesterday when some of you started receiving them.
How I'm fixing it
First, I'm providing this PDF so anybody that doesn't want to wait can print off a fixed version right now.
Second, I'm going to mail off replacements to everybody as soon as I can, but it should be by the end of next week.

Starter Kits and Basic Kits Shipping Soon™
I've completed 167 of the Basic Kits now that I have the dice. I'm just some manual labor away from finishing the remaining basic kits and starter kits. I'm focusing the next two weeks on getting those out to people who order just those items.
I only received a partial shipment of dice and I'm awaiting the remaining shipment in a month. This gives me time to stain the boxes by hand and get things screen printed before the dice do show up. I'll keep you updated on my progress, but I expect my speed will be about 40 every two days once I get in the flow of doing this work.
