Monthly Update: December
over 1 year ago – Tue, Dec 28, 2021 at 03:20:08 PM

Hello everyone! 

We hope that you had wonderful holidays despite everything that is happening in the world (if you don't celebrate, we still hope you are doing well)!

We are still well on the way to finish the text (at least the first pass) of text for January. January update will also include the first look on the GM screen stretch goal, and we are quite excited about it! We think it's going to be a useful piece for game masters and players alike to quickly refer rules and other important piece of information.

The solo mode in the book is also coming together quite well! As it is an addition to the base book, we try to make it concise to keep our initial goal of a maximum of 600 pages, but making it feel complete on it's own with interesting table and story ideas!

Some Other News

While Kickstarter is a default website for crowdfunding, as it brings a lot of exposure to projects, we must speak about the future of Arkelon Chronicles and our other projects following the recent Kickstarter announcement: As a company that values environment friendly practices, this announcement doesn't sit well with us. While the announcement states that their provider is carbon-negative, there's still not enough information to know how efficient their carbon reduction actually is. In the light of this announcement, Wendigo Workshopwill no longer use Kickstarter for future crowdfunding projects. As we continue working on Arkelon and other IPs, we will keep you updated as to where our next projects will be through our newsletter and Backerkit mail.

Monthly Update: November
over 1 year ago – Mon, Nov 22, 2021 at 08:55:49 PM


It's that time of the month again!

We don't have much updates to showcase, but a reminder for everyone with a custom character art in their order: We have sent the e-mail regarding your design, if you haven't received it, check your spam folder or contact us through Kickstarter or Backerkit! Those with their designs already layed out, you can ignore the message!

We also sent a reminder for those who haven't answered yet, you can check your spam folder if you haven't seen it in your inbox. Take note that until we charge and lock orders (approximately 1 month before shipping -> around July 2022) you can always add bonus items, change your address or payment method. 

For the game in itself, art is still coming through, all races now have their lore's first pass written, more monster stats are coming in for the field guide, and we are fairly confident that everything left in the writing department will be finished in January. Our first pass for correction and French translation will also be started at that time.

Monthly Update: October
over 1 year ago – Wed, Oct 27, 2021 at 07:02:14 PM

Hello everyone!

A small monthly update on the progress and other small things.

We are still monitoring the paper/cardboard shortage, which for now is not problematic versus the date that we plan to print, which is encouraging! We'll still update you on the situation with each updates, and stay open with the situation, so you'll be aware of any delays that might befall the Kickstarter release.

(Nous surveillons l'évolution de la pénurie papier/carton, qui n'est pour l'instant pas problématique par rapport à la date d'impression prévue, ce qui est encourageant ! Nous vous tiendrons toujours au courant de la situation à chaque mise à jour et resterons transparents, afin que vous soyez au courant de tout retard pouvant survenir.)

People with customized characters will soon see them come to life, as a new batch of illustrations will be started in early-mid November, so we'll be contacting you to be sure that your concept is layed out so we can send them to production!

(Les personnes avec des personnages personnalisés les verront bientôt prendre vie, car un nouveau lot d'illustrations sera lancé début-mi-novembre, nous vous contacterons donc pour nous assurer que votre concept est mis en place afin que nous puissions les envoyer en production!)

We are also starting to have enough artwork to start laying out what the Artbook's interior will look like, so we'll soon be showing that off too!

(Nous commençons également à avoir suffisamment d'illlustrations pour commencer à travailler sur l'intérieur de l'Artbook, nous allons donc bientôt pouvoir le montrer!)

A new artist from Québec will be joining us for the GM screen's illustrations, so we'll soon be able to unveil some more about that! Her work ->

(Une nouvelle artiste Québécoise se joindra à nous pour les illustrations de l'écran de MJ, nous pourrons donc bientôt vous en dévoiler plus!)

Monthly Update: September
over 1 year ago – Thu, Sep 23, 2021 at 03:30:52 PM

Hello everyone!

I hope you are doing good and that you had a good summer.

(J'espère que vous avez passé un bel été.)

We had a couple of questions regarding the current paper shortage of the pandemic, and if this would affect the production of Arkelon. So far, we are STILL targeting the August 2022 (or earlier) release, though we are keeping a VERY close eye on how this shortage evolves during the next months, and if it should affect or delay production, we will keep you all updated (this is also valid for the GM screen, as it cardboard, the shortage may also affect production). Digital version of the game should, however, not suffer from any delay!

(Nous avons reçu quelques questions concernant la pénurie actuelle de papier causée par la pandémie, et si cela affecterait la production d'Arkelon. Jusqu'à présent, nous visons TOUJOURS une sortie en août 2022, bien que nous gardions un œil sur l'évolution de cette pénurie au cours des prochains mois. Si cela devait affecter ou retarder la production, nous vous tiendrons tous au courant (ceci est également valide pour l'écran de GM, puisqu'il est fait de carton, la pénurie peut aussi affecter la production). La version numérique du jeu ne devrait cependant souffrir d'aucun retard !)

We are also still planning on charging backerkit add-ons, preorders and shipping around April-May 2022, and will send an e-mail 2 weeks prior doing it so you can prepare, and lock orders for production around the same time.

(Nous avons prévus de charger les commandes Backerkit et les frais de port autour d'avril-mai 2022, et nous enverrons un mail 2 semaines avant. Nous allons aussi vérouiller les commandes autour des mêmes dates.)

We also got more art coming in!

As always, thank you for the amazing support, as we wouldn't be there without you! We are working really hard to bring to you the best of Arkelon Chronicles!

Montly Update: August
almost 2 years ago – Thu, Aug 19, 2021 at 11:25:37 PM

Hello everyone and welcome to this monthly update!

(Bonjour tout le monde et bienvenue à cet mise à jour mensuelle!)

We don't have much to cover on this update, but as it is going right now, we are still going forward and aiming for an August 2022 release. With everything going on in the world and having international artists, we must adapt to fires, COVID, extreme heat, floods, etc. This is one of the reason why we gave ourselves more than a year to complete the project, so we are able to deliver in time despite these hard times!

(Nous n'avons pas grand chose à couvrir dans cette mise à jour. Comment les choses vont présentement, nous allons garder notre date de sortie pour août 2022. Avec tout ce qui se passe dans le monde présentement, et ayant des artistes à l'international, nous devons nous adapter aux feux, à la COVID, aux chaleurs extrêmes, aux inondations, etc. C'est l'une des raisons pourquoi nous nous sommes donnés plus d'un an pour compléter le projet, ce qui nous donne le temps de livrer le projet à temps malgré tout celà!)

Two new illustrations are on their way! You can have an idea of what is coming below, with a special nod to a very popular legend from Quebec!

(Deux nouvelles illustrations complètes viendront s'ajouter bientôt à celles qui sont déjà terminées. Vous pouvez avoir une idée de ce qui s'en vient ci-dessous (avec une allusion spéciale à une légende Québécoise!))

We also have other race art in the work!

(Nous avons aussi d'autres illustrations de races en développement)

Finished Jaanvar-Kob Heritage

The text in itself is also being worked on, as well as monsters and creatures. We will soon be integrating the last rules for vehicles, crafting and support for playing disabled characters (for which we have consulted with sensibility readers and people having said disabilities).

(Le texte en soi est aussi travaillé, ainsi que des monstres et des créatures. Nous allons bientôt intégrer les dernières règles pour les véhicules, l'artisanat et le support pour jouer des personnages handicapés (nous avons consulté des personne ayant les handicaps que nous allons utiliser pour s'assurer d'offrir des règles qui sont adéquates et respectueuses).

For the custom artwork, most of the basic questions were asked and answered! We still have 3 official characters to be completed before we hop full time on those and really putting together the concepts to send them to the artists! We have really interesting and different concepts so it's really exciting!

(Pour les personnages personnalisés, la plupart des questions de base ont été posées et répondues! Nous avons encore 3 personnages officiels à terminer avant d'embarquer à temps plein se ces illustrations et d'envoyer les concepts aux artistes. Nous avons plusieurs concepts très différents et intéressants!)

We have a small Discord community that you can join if you want to speak with other people about the game or other subjects:

(Nous avons aussi un serveur Discord qu'il est possible de joindre, avec des salons en français et en anglais, and lequel il est possible de parler du jeu, ou de beaucoup d'autres choses)

People there are really nice, and it's cool to see our little community becoming bigger and bigger!

As always, thank you for supporting us, take care, and we'll be seeing you next month!
