The Earthly Sovereign - Nüwa
27 days ago – Fri, Nov 06, 2020 at 11:52:41 PM

Hello everyone! 

Hope you've all been well. I know I said this update would include items however we've pushed those back a few weeks to be included in a much larger update in December that will include a few new announcements as well! 

To hold you ever in the meantime I have another beautiful new piece of art to share with you, Nüwa! Though he was listed on the initial Kickstarter this is the first piece of Ren Tu's art that we've shared publicly, it's also the first of the included Chinese deities we've shared artwork for.

Also, we still have 6% of you outstanding on your Backerkit surveys, as stated previously we will be keeping the survey open for some time but please fill these out at your earliest convenience! 

Have a great weekend everyone, I'll be in touch soon.

Hello everyone!

I hope you've all been well. Just a quick update today. 

Things are still on track with the writing, Marcus is just putting the finishing touches on Parthia while I'm fleshing out the Illyrian section. 

I am also excited to announce we have another new artist working with us, Daniel Correia. Here's his first piece for Age of Antiquity: Athena, Goddess of Wisdom. 


In the next update we will showcase a pair of new magical items, one Egyptian and one Greek. 

Have a great weekend everyone!

Shipping Address Updates
3 months ago – Tue, Sep 08, 2020 at 11:27:41 PM

Hello everyone, 

We've had quite a few asking if it's possible to change the shipping address filled in on Backerkit and yes it is. Until the surveys are locked on our end, which won't be for a few more weeks, you should be able to use the original link to go back and make changes to your survey. After the surveys are locked any changes will need to be done manually on our end via email contact from you. 

Please send us a direct message or email if you have any trouble with this.

Next update I will have some more art to share with all of you!

Thanks everyone.

Hello everyone,

85% of you have now completed your Backerkit Surveys! Thank you all for the timely responses. A few people have asked and yes you can still upgrade your pledge through the survey. Before you start the first question there should be an option to adjust your pledge level at the bottom.

To our Pontif Maximus backers, as I'm sure many of you saw already I will be reaching out to you personally to get information on your characters, expect these emails to go out next Monday, a week from today. 

I'm also happy to announce a new artist we're working with, Francisco Ruiz Nuñez, who's first piece can be seen below, the Celtic Cailleach!

With the next update I'll a few new magic items and new artwork of the Kushite Queen to share with all of you. 

Sorry as well to anyone waiting on a reply to a message, I wasn't being alerted to them the past few days for some reason, I am working through the backlog now however!
