Hi Folks,

I am currently looking for solutions to save the Behemoth. I've been renegotiating the pricing with the factory to get it back in to the ball park after we had the large exodus of backers leave. It's not working out.

The way factories work is pretty much on volume, and there are base costs involved. If I have an order for 100 units of something for $1 each (just sample numbers), and I change that order to 50 units, the price goes up to $1.80 each (or some variation of), and in fact, some factories won't even work with smaller quantities if you're already at the minimum.

Suffice it to say I just need to get more backers back.

I've had a lot of interest pop up for the Behemoth since the KickStarter ended, and I'm looking at some way to raise the number of Backers, the best way is to pre-sell - but, I will need a minimum number of pre-sales to get this to work.

I know you may be thinking, "Just do a refund now". Here's the thing, besides being emotionally invested in getting the Behemoth made, I've also spent a chunk of the funds on getting everything to this point (lost a percentage to KickStarter fees and full refunds, and was going to put in my own funds to help this along which would have been borrowed) so refunding everyone would be delayed anyways. At this stage in the game, I am not giving up, I am trying to salvage the project.

I'm asking for more time and faith on your part, I am dedicated to getting these beautiful figures to you any way I can!

So, over the last few months I've been working on a way to pre-sell the Behemoth without taking funds unless a specific goal is reached, and we're very close to launching it. If this method of saving our project doesn't work, I'll throw in the towel at that point and do refunds across the board (as I am able), and close down DCMs for good.

I do not have a hard date at this time, but will get this to you as soon as I can.

Best, Jey.

As with all digital projects, there's always something that comes up that you didn't consider. We are making progress, but have had a few set backs.

We should have something to show potential new backers by mid December.

Our thanks for your patience.

Hey Gentlefolk,

We're launching a "pre-order" setup to salvage the Behemoth. Its' a fund-raising system called Project-Fuel which will collect funds only once the goal is reached, GVN owns it. We built this because we want to use it for all of our designs that are sitting in our in-box, not just the Behemoth. Projects that will for sure launch on it: :sweet:

8x8 Behemoth
6x6 Walking Hut
3x3 Water Elemental Lord
2x2 Clawed Deviant
2x2 Riders (*we have 3)
1x1 Orc Shaman
1/2 Skwee

It's all about volumn, if we can't get enough interest DCM is pretty much not going to be able to exist either way. That's how it's always going to be, supply and demand. The more we can all share it, the better. :help:

I've set up an information page here http://www.dungeoncrawler.com/project-fuel.php once it launches, we'll drop that link as well.

This launches March 2nd!

I'm very excited about the Project-Fuel system; I don't have to fight against the wrong currency then fight with exchange rates, it uses Paypal, projects can last indefinitely until cancelled or funded - AND it's not collected until it funds. Once it starts collecting additional backers can continue to pledge and get in on the action before it closes for the order. :twitch:

Thanks to those of you that are holding on, I know this has been a very trying road so far. :ayyy:
