When can I get access to the Manifest Quickstart Guide?
Due to logistical reasons, we here at Waypoint Game Designs decided to follow Kickstarter’s advice and refrain from releasing any of the rewards before the campaign is complete & successful.
We realize that the end of the campaign seems like forever and a day away, which is why we’re encouraging everyone to comment and join the community on the Manifest Kickstarter page and on Manifest’s other social media.
This is why we plan on holding a few Kickstarter Live Q&A’s and demos during the campaign. Hopefully, these can help stave off the appetite for more Manifest info until the campaign ends and we’re a success!

How can I get a better feel for how Manifest and the Fistful of D20s system plays?
There are a bunch of resources at your disposal!
The easiest one is to watch the Kickstarter Live stream from March 6th. The Manifest Team plays a quick session of Manifest and then answers a bunch of questions during the Q&A session. https://youtu.be/O55bUsHKXeM
Also the Essential NPCs Podcast did 21 actual play episodes of Manifest. They also have a segment at the beginning of every episode where they talk about many of the gameplay mechanics of Manifest! https://soundcloud.com/essential-npcs/sets/series-9-manifest
You can also tune into our upcoming countdown livestream on April 1! There we’ll be taking your questions, playing some Manifest, and also going through a few tutorials of how to play the game! https://live.kickstarter.com/waypoint-game-designs/live/manifest-8-hour-countdown-livestream
At first glance the Fistful of D20s system may seem intimidating, however once the players have a grasp of the basic dice mechanics, it really does bolster the narrative RPG experience. Go check out all of these resources, they are a great way to get a feel for Manifest and also it’s game engine.

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.
