Can Firelight be played with more than 4 players?
Yes - Though our in-box game is balanced for 2-4 players (including the Game Master), the in-box content allows for up to eight players. Our included instruction manual will provide adjustments to balance combat for more than 4 players. Remember, though, that Firelight is largely an improv-based game, and Game Masters of larger games should help make sure every player gets their chance to speak!

Is the GM Handbook Add-On necessary to play the game?
Definitely not! Firelight includes all of the instructions you need to play all 20 Quests in the basic box. The GM Handbook only serves to add more content on top of that. It includes helpful tips for new Game Masters, as well as alternate scenarios to add a little more variety to the included Quests.

How much value/playtime can I get from the in-box content?
To complete all 20 included Quests one time each, it would take approximately 30-40 hours. However, each Quest is designed to change based on player input and GM direction, plus our Personality and Treasure cards add near infinite wrinkles to that. You can keep playing Firelight forever!

What is included in the Eldritch Visions expansion?
The Eldritch Visions expansion should include approximately half of the content as the full game, including new Quests and Adventurers.

Is the Eldritch Visions expansion stand-alone, or do I need the full Firelight game to play it?
Eldritch Visions will be stand-alone. You will not need the full game to play, but we do encourage combining the two for the most complete experience.

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.
How do I update my shipping address?
BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the project is locked down for shipping. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.
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.
Why can’t I log into my account?
Request a login link to your survey by entering your email here:
BackerKit will send you an automated email with an invite link to whatever email you pledged with.
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.
When will my pledge will be shipped, charged or locked down?
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.
Can I upgrade or get multiple copies of my pledge?
This depends on the project creator’s decision. If you are unable to see the ‘Want to switch your pledge level?’ after clicking on your pledge amount under “Pledge Level” in your survey, then the project creator would prefer people not to switch pledge levels.
