Latest Updates from Our Project:

End of March Fulfillment Update
about 21 hours ago – Wed, Apr 01, 2020 at 11:35:21 PM

Hello, everyone. It's that time again - let's check in.

As we discussed in our last update, Wyrmwood, like virtually every other organization of people, has been impacted by COVID-19. If you missed that update, you can find it posted to our website. We'd encourage you to read it, if you haven't yet, so you're fully caught up.

Shipping Status of March
 

The vast majority of March pledges have been shipped, with a small number of orders still remaining that are being filled and shipped out in the coming days. We nearly made it to 100% fulfillment on time, but with our drastic staff reduction we did fall behind a bit. Nonetheless, in accordance with our policy, we'll be including $25 Gyft Certificates inside the remaining shipments that go out from today forward.

April Fulfillment
 

At this point, we don't want to be ambiguous: the vast majority of the April fulfillment tier is almost certainly going to be late. We do have some production left on the shelves from prior to shutting down, but it isn't nearly enough to fill the month's pledges, and we are not producing Hero Vaults right now.

Unfortunately, Hero Vaults are not yet ready to be slated into the production processes we're able to maintain - namely, the in-home production we're beginning to establish. Not only that, the mix of woods make production a lot more complicated, as well, and it just isn't feasible to make it work off-site in any kind of numbers- certainly not the numbers we need. We may be able to get some smaller runs going later this month, but it will not be enough to close out the tier on time, and we can't say for sure how many it will be. We should know more by the time of the next update, but for now, if you're in the April fulfillment tier - assume your pledge is going to arrive late.

Once we're back up and running, obviously we'll throw things into overdrive as much as possible - but we still don't know when that will be, and our most optimistic guess is sometime in May.

We realize you're probably disappointed to hear this - we sure are disappointed to be saying it - but when things return to normal, and we can all have game nights again, we'll get your Hero Vaults out - hopefully it makes getting back at the table that much sweeter for all of you. We've certainly missed it ourselves.

Again, as with the March backers, this means April backers are going to qualify for the $25 Gyft Certificate offer, as well. If it becomes clear that the tier as a whole will be late, we'll likely send these out digitally en masse, rather than including them with the packages. In the next update, a couple of weeks from now, we should be able to give a definitive answer on that, as well. Hopefully by then we'll know more about what the future looks like, as well.

Thank you all for bearing with us during this extremely challenging time. Stay safe and healthy out there!

Wyrm Lyfe & Twitch
 

Most of us are stuck at home with little we can do. We felt it was as good a time as any to expand Wyrm Lyfe to twice a week, both to cover the unprecedented situation we - and all of us - are in, as well as, frankly, to fill the time since there's a huge demand for content right now.

You can view the entire series on our channel. New episodes every Wednesday AND Sunday.

Our Twitch stream is also going strong, and you can catch that by clicking here.

We stream Monday-Thursday beginning at 7:00 PM Eastern time, and Fridays starting at noon. A Tuesday afternoon spot every week is coming soon, too.

And hey, speaking of Wyrm Lyfe, it's Wednesday today - and, that means a new episode!

Watch it right here:

Something Completely Different

If you watched the new episode just now, you no doubt noticed the segment concerning intubation boxes. To summarize:

Wyrmwood is working to create boxes for doctors, nurses, EMTs, firefighters and other healthcare professionals to safely intubate patients without risking pathogen exposure any more than necessary. These boxes, designed by a Chinese doctor, are available on request to any of the above individuals. The production and shipping of these boxes will be financed through the funds raised from sales of our Shield of Protection.

Important Notes Before Requesting A Box
 

  • We're beginning to make these immediately, but supplies will be extremely limited, at least at first.
     
  • This offer is intended for individual healthcare workers - NOT bulk orders from hospitals or other agencies. We can arrange those orders, but that is outside the scope of this offer. The first step is to get some of these out in the world and in the hands of first responders on the front lines. We can get feedback, refine if needed, and they can make sure this is something they want before we start trying to crank out large numbers.
     
  • We will be able to produce these in our shop. We will continue to observe the safest practices we can, but this is obviously an essential manufacturing project, and we'll do what we can to make as many as we can.
     
  • We'll make the plan for the box available, also free of charge, so anyone with access to the raw materials and a laser cutter - including other companies - could offer these.
     
  • Anyone requesting one needs to send us their name, profession, and mailing address via email. Please attach an image of a work ID verifying you are a trained healthcare professional - we need these to go where they're needed, in the hands of people that can make use of them properly.
     

With all that out of the way, to request a box, email us at COVID@WyrmwoodGaming.com.

And, the reason we're including this here: please pass these details on to anyone you know in the  healthcare field that may be interested.

Stay safe, everyone, thanks again for your support and understanding, and we'll be in touch soon.

Wyrmwood & COVID-19: A Statement for our Backers and Community
11 days ago – Sun, Mar 22, 2020 at 11:06:35 PM

To our valued clients, backers, customers, fans, and community:

As you’re all aware, the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic is spreading, and has had an effect on everyday life for nearly everyone. We at Wyrmwood are no exception, and have been working hard to chart a course through these uncertain times, both as a company, and as a family of passionate gamers that work and interact closely together.

As a company, we have a responsibility to ourselves, our employees and our community to take all the precautions we can to avoid spreading the disease ourselves. But at this time, many of us are turning to the gaming community for normalcy and comfort - even if we’re changing how we come together, we’re still coming together. Wyrmwood feels a responsibility to continue our role in this community as much as possible.

Key Objective

Wyrmwood will continue to operate as much as possible, for as long as possible, while prioritizing the safety of our team and community.

Immediate Actions

Wyrmwood will be operating with essential personnel only. This will consist of approximately 15 people, working at the main facility which usually houses our full team of 65. In addition, we will implement expanded safety measures which include social distancing within the workplace, a ban on shared work spaces and tools, and the shutdown of common areas like the breakroom.

Operations like shipping, new product development, work on furniture and some accessory production will take place at the shop.

We’re also implementing decentralized production techniques, which will include production for some accessories taking place away from the main facility, in employees’ homes. Batches of products will be delivered on a weekly basis, employees will advance them or complete them entirely, then they’ll be picked up and brought back to the shop for packaging and shipping - without physical interaction between the parties.

As stated above, development and planning continues for new projects, such as our upcoming Kickstarter campaign, and this work will move forward - albeit with possibly modified production deadlines given the current situation.

No matter what occurs, you can expect to hear a lot more about it through WYRM LYFE and our Twitch channel, both of which will continue full operation. Our community has never been more important than it is right now, and we hope you’ll continue to join us as we all navigate this situation together.

What Does This Mean for Me?

No doubt you’re wondering how all of this will impact you. Well, that depends on whether you’re a website customer, furniture client or Kickstarter backer.

Website Customers

Customers placing orders of in-stock items at WyrmwoodGaming.com will feel the least impact from these changes. Our website inventory reflects completed, ready-to-ship merchandise, and shipping will continue for these items. We will continue to produce items and keep the inventory up-to-date, and ship out orders daily.

Shipping and customer service will both continue, although some slight delays in both are possible, given our scaled back workforce, so please bear with us if it takes a little longer to get a response or a shipping notification than you’re used to - it will come. We promise.

Kickstarter Backers

Our current fulfillment is on track, and we are not expecting an issue shipping out the remainder of the March orders on time for both the Tabletop Tiles and Hero Vault 2.0 campaigns. We will continue to ship out completed items in April, as well.

That said, we do anticipate some delays with April fulfillment. These are not guaranteed, but we would say they are likely given the circumstances, so please be prepared for that if you’re in the April fulfillment wave for either currently fulfilling campaign.

The Corrupted Collection, which begins fulfillment this summer, should not be affected and we do not anticipate any delays in fulfillment for backers at this time.

We would like to again highlight our Kickstarter fulfillment policy, as outlined in campaign updates to all current campaigns:

Any backer with a Kickstarter order that is shipped out later than the target fulfillment month will receive a $25 digital Gyft Certificate good for use on any available item at WyrmwoodGaming.com.

Furniture Clients

Shipping of furniture is being suspended, effective immediately. The white glove delivery services we employ are becoming extremely limited, if available at all, and continuing to ship out furniture that causes delivery personnel to enter into homes and risk contracting and/or spreading the disease seems irresponsible at best. In addition, this option is no longer even available in many areas, either by carrier decision or government mandate. While we could explore alternatives, such as curbside delivery, that, too, may be unavailable. It’s also not practical in many cases, and we’d much rather see the job done right a bit later than risk a bad experience for our valued clients.

As we complete tables, we’ll be storing them at our facility until such time as shipping can resume. This will avoid them being warehoused in some other facility, or sitting in a truck that’s been shut down for reasons out of our control. However, shipping will resume as soon as possible, and we will notify everyone when this occurs.

Production is continuing on any table currently in progress - meaning for which construction has begun. We intend to keep working on all of these tables until they are 100% done, at which time we will issue final invoices for those pieces. We will not issue shipping invoices, of course, since we always obtain a quote just prior to shipping for accuracy.

We will not prompt any other tables for additional payment at this time. That is, we won’t issue any “time to decide” messages or move anyone to “on hold” for not paying according to the normal schedule. However, any client that wishes to place their finalization order is free to do so, and we are continuing to accept new deposits and maintain the queue so we can pick up where we left off as soon as full-scale production can resume.

Moving Forward

Part of what makes this situation so difficult is that it strikes at something important to all of us - our sense of community, our ability to get together around the table and share our lives, or celebrate together at a convention. We can’t do much of that right now, and it hurts.

A quote has been making the rounds a lot lately, and it’s one most of you probably know well:

“I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo. “So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”

We may not be able to gather in the same place right now, but we’re all going through the same things, and we are - all of us - in this together. So we hope you’ll continue to join us on Twitch, and continue to interact with us and with each other through our YouTube and social media channels. We’re all going to get through this, and we’ll come back, stronger than before. And we’ll do it together.

Here at Wyrmwood, we’re going to keep moving forward, keep shipping orders, keep developing new ideas and products to make your game nights better - just like our upcoming custom dice Kickstarter, which we’ll be launching soon. Because there are a lot of game nights for all of us ahead, and soon enough, you’ll all be back at the table. And as always, Wyrmwood will be honored to be there with you.

Sincerely,

Douglas Costello, Ian Costello, Ed Maranville, Jason MacDonald, Bobby Downey, John Paquette, J Kenyon, Nick Trepanier, Christopher Gates & the entire Wyrmwood family

Mid-March Fulfillment Update
18 days ago – Sun, Mar 15, 2020 at 11:00:31 PM

Hi everyone!

We hope you're staying safe out there. For the time being, normal operations press on here at Wyrmwood, so read on for the latest info.

Fulfillment & Accessory Update

We're happy to report that we're still on track for this month's shipment, with more orders from the March fulfillment tier shipping daily. We don't anticipate a problem hitting the target and getting everything out over the remainder of the month, though we may have to ship some orders without some accessories, as we've mentioned in the past couple of updates, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and its continuing impact to supply chains around the world.



If you're affected by this, we won't hold up your entire order - we'll ship your pledge items - Hero Vaults - then follow up as soon as possible with your add-on accessories. We're going to do what we can to minimize the impact, but it's likely to affect at least some orders, beginning towards the end of March fulfillment and into April. We'll have more concrete information in the next update, once we've wrapped up everything we can in March. We apologize for the uncertainty, but don't worry - we're on top of things and will make sure you all get your items, even if a bit late!

End of February Fulfillment Update
about 1 month ago – Mon, Mar 02, 2020 at 12:07:06 AM

Hello everybody!

Well, February has wrapped up, and how did we do? Well, nearly all orders from the month are out! We got a late start fulfilling this month, due to an unexpected delay with the packaging, but once it came through, we hit the ground running and made up for lost time.

Now, there are a few exceptions - but those seem limited to a handful of surveys that were not fully completed in time, and that we got a late start on as a result. But barring those, we shipped the last of the February orders out on Friday, the 28th, so they may yet take a few days to arrive (or longer, for our international orders). If you don't have them by the end of this coming week, definitely let us know and we'll look into the situation and find out what's going on.

We're well into production for March, so shipping will continue beginning this coming week, and we anticipate no issues shipping out all March orders within the coming weeks.

One quick note: we don't have any recent photos for this update, unfortunately, so it'll be a little visually plain. With two conventions this weekend, the week was a bit hectic and our media resources were stretched a little thin. We'll have a new batch of pictures in the next update!


Accessory Status
 

In our last update, we mentioned some issues with suppliers due to the (now global) issues related to the Coronavirus impacting shipping and production. We were able to avoid any impact to February, and it looks like March should *mostly* be all set.

Most of our suppliers are back in operation, but we are very low on our resin dice sets, and we may not see a re-supply of these for 30-40 days. At this time, however, that's the only item we're facing that kind of delay on. Everything else we're beginning to get restocked.

If your March order is complete save for missing accessories (the aforementioned dice), we are not planning to hold up fulfillment if we do not expect to have them in within a week or so. As a result, we may need to ship some accessories after the fact when they arrive. If your order is affected by this, we will notify you, so please hold off on asking if your order will be complete or not until at least the mid-month fulfillment update, when we'll have a better view of how things will shake out. Again, though, we expect impact to fulfillment to be pretty mild.

Mid-February Fulfillment Update
about 2 months ago – Sun, Feb 16, 2020 at 02:22:15 AM

Hello everybody!

February is upon us, and fulfillment has begun. We're facing some headwinds, mostly owing to our final product boxes arriving a bit late. As a result, we're going to be funneling a small amount of extra labor to shipping in the next couple weeks, and we expect we can catch up and complete all of February's orders on time. Production, however, is proceeding well, and we're in a good place in terms of inventory, as evidenced by the below photos, which we hope you'll enjoy. :)

Unfortunately, though, we may run into some issues with accessories (to be clear, we solely refer to dice, meeples, etc., and not Hero Vaults themselves). We're working to avoid it as best we can, but we are facing supplier setbacks that we may not be able to work around, at least in the short term.

We'll know more in the coming weeks the scope of the problem, and hopefully we'll be able to work around it, but, as I'm sure many of you are aware, global supply chains are being heavily impacted by the Coronavirus outbreak, and unfortunately a number of our accessories fall into this category. When we know the scope of the issue, we'll determine a course of action, which may have to include shipping out orders without the aforementioned accessories and filling those once we're able to restock. Again, for now we're pushing ahead and this should not impact many February orders, if any. We'll give more details in the next update, so please hold off on asking about specific orders yet, if you'd be so kind.

Thanks for your understanding, and we look forward to completing fulfillment! And thank you, as always, for your support.
