For the most up-to-date information about the status of our project, check our project updates on Kickstarter!

Will the tarot deck be an actual deck of tarot cards or tarot-themed cards with new titles and meanings for the RPG?

The Tarot Deck will be all the Major Arcana cards (22 of them) with illustrations that have meanings tied to the campaign’s story, characters and other things.

The titles will be tarot titles (the Major Arcana ones).

Will the book include expanded rules for ship-to-ship combat?

In Starlight Arcana, the focus is on exploration and discovery. The main point is on keeping things as simple and approachable as possible for both GMs and players, so we are creating something that people can easily pick up and play without too many advanced rules for spacefaring.

That being said, we do have plans for ship battles in the future, but when it comes to Starlight Arcana, the rules you will get for anything related to ship-to-ship combat would be more about boarding other ships for example, but not expanded or detailed rules on naval combat.

Will there be support for Roll20?

There will be, but not as part of the campaign. The book will be made into a Roll20 module but will be sold separately on the Roll20 marketplace once the book is ready.

Our main focus was making the module on FoundryVTT first as a premium module because we have so many amazing things that we want to add to the module and Foundry was the best platform to make the book really shine in VTT form!

What are the different maps included in the Galaxy tier? What is the difference from the ones that are in the Quickstart box?

The reason why we haven’t added the information for that is due to the fact that we weren’t sure which different maps we wanted to do for the Galaxy tier, so we left it unanswered.

We have come to a decision now though and the maps that will be included will most likely be:

  • Act 2 base map (most important one for Act 2)
  • Act 3 generic node map (it’s an important part of Act 3, no matter which planet you are on, I cannot spoil anymore information about this yet)
  • Some other beautiful map, most probably from one of the planets.

The idea was to include printed versions of the maps that you would use the most. The galaxy map which would be the most useful one for Act 3 is already in the Quickstart box, so we had to pick some other ones for the Galaxy tier.

Will the Tarot Cards be available in digital format? Maybe as a PDF?

The Tarot will not be available in digital form on their own because we felt that offering them at printing quality would make the physical version less special and we did not want that.

The illustrations will be inside the book to reference what each card does (for gameplay reasons) and they will also be visible in the Foundry VTT version of the book. So with that in mind, you won’t have to worry about use in VTTs since we will take care of that for you (to use as handouts and whatnot).

BackerKit FAQ

What is BackerKit?

BackerKit is a service that crowdfunded project creators use to keep track of hundreds to tens of thousands of backers—from shipping details, pledge levels, preferences and quantities, whether they have paid or had their card declined, special notes, and everything in between!

The BackerKit software and support team is independent from the campaign’s project team—BackerKit does not handle the actual reward shipping. For more information about the preparation or delivery status of your rewards, please check the project's updates page.

How does BackerKit work?

After the campaign ends, the project creator will send you an email with a unique link to your survey. You can check out a walkthrough of the process here.

I never received my invitation. How do I complete the survey?

The most common reasons for not receiving a survey email is that you may be checking an email inbox different from the email address you used to sign up with Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account, or it may be caught in your spam filter.

Confirm that the email address you are searching matches the email address tied to your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Tilt Pro account. If that doesn’t work, then try checking your spam, junk or promotions folders. You can also search for "backerkit” in your inbox.

To resend the survey to yourself, visit the project page and input the email address associated with your Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account.

How do I update my shipping address?

BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the shipping addresses are locked by the project creator. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.

When will my order be shipped, charged or locked?

That is handled directly by the project creator. BackerKit functions independently of the project itself, so we do not have control of their physical shipping timeline. If you want to check on the project’s status, we recommend reading over the project's updates page.

I completed the survey, but haven't received my rewards yet. When will they arrive?

As BackerKit does not actually handle any rewards or shipping, the best way to stay updated on the shipping timeline would be to check out the project's updates page.
