Scroll through the list, its a long one.
Backerkit is a followup to the Kickstarter.
The kickstarter determines funding and project details but some things like shipping have to be handled separately. That is where BackerKit comes in and you should get a notice on it in the next week or two.

What happens next is we wait. Once they have things sorted out, we'll get contacted for delivery info, email address for the PDF, etc. We'll also get information about the BackerKit (the "backer thingy"), which is where you will pay for shipping, and have the option to purchase add-ons ala carte if you so choose. Basically what happens is the money you already paid gets applied to the BackerKit account, and you are just responsible for the difference (i.e., shipping).

You can see what's in the "I want it all" under the campaign details(the top graphic)

It's 122 days 'til Christmas, so we get to be patient.

For the original idea behind Kickstarter, this is the point where the idea is funded and the project would start. SJG would get to work cranking out the stuff they promised. Since SJG is an established, ongoing company, a lot of that work is probably already done or familiar to them. But I'm sure there's a lot of editing and formatting for modern publication systems and production details to contract for.

The "Estimated Delivery" on the KS page was March 2019, so an even longer wait than for Christmas. I'm sure Phil (or someone) will keep us up to date as the work progresses. So, 7-8 months until the shiny new dice can hit the shiny new playmats.

Isn't there supposed to be some sort of Kickstarter Survey coming out soon?

I'm curious if anyone knows the physical page size of the new books. I'm guessing 8.5x11 inches, since the maps are twice that size and thus fold nicely half-and-half-again to that same size. The box is likely to be a bit larger, since the pocket folders are 9x12 inches. Don't know the size of the GM screen either, would guess it probably folds down to 9x12 as well.

That will be a few more weeks. We have to wait at least two weeks for Kickstarter to process the credit cards.

Mid-September is the most likely time for Backerkit surveys to open.

Well, I'll be adding more pocketboxes to my order if backerkit lets me... They'll make excellent gifts.

The folders do not fit inside the Legacy Edition box. The Legacy Edition box is designed to hold the items included inside the box, not any of the extra items produced during the Kickstarter project. (Shipping a box to retail with empty spaces would be cruel.)

Basically, if it is not listed as a part of the Legacy Edition box, the box is not designed to hold the item.
