Standard Action http://standardaction.zombieorpheus.com A fantasy-comedy webseries for geeks of all kinds Sun, 04 Oct 2015 04:12:51 +0000 en-US hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.0.8 Kickstarter Perks and Merch Update! http://standardaction.zombieorpheus.com/2015/10/03/kickstarter-perks-and-merch-update/ http://standardaction.zombieorpheus.com/2015/10/03/kickstarter-perks-and-merch-update/#comments Sun, 04 Oct 2015 03:55:34 +0000 http://standardaction.zombieorpheus.com/?p=3564 These days, we at the Standard Action Skull Fortress are spending a LOT of time at the post office.

These days, we at the Standard Action Skull Fortress are spending a LOT of time at the post office. Why? Because we’re finally mailing the physical packages of Kickstarter perks to our glorious backers, that’s why! That means that now is the time for you to update your mailing address with us, if it needs doing. Drop us a message at watchstandardaction@gmail.com if you’re a backer who has recently moved, and we’ll update our records.

As we’re still polishing up the Edda feature film backstory, the first packs that are currently being mailed are the ones that contain only DVDs and Button Men, and after those are out the door we’ll be starting on the packs with Card Games, and finally the big boxes with all the goodies for our higher-level backers.

Shortly after everything is sent, we’ll be closing the Standard Action Season 3 pre-order over at fansupported.net (we’ll give you some warning when it’s going to happen) and then we’ll ship those as well. These are available for anyone who wants a copy of Season 3 with different art and packaging, and anyone who just missed the Season 3 Kickstarter altogether!

Other reasons we’ve been at the post office so much? Well, our Standard Auctions, of course! We’ve been making Season 1, 2 and 3 props and costumes available to our fans over on our Standard Auctions page, and we’ve ended up sending bits and pieces of our little world as far away as Australia, Germany and Texas!

We also made a couple of great discoveries while going through a variety of merch boxes, namely a selection of our very special d21 “That’s How I Roll” t-shirts, and a beautiful assortment of handmade perfume oils, specifically designed and mixed for Standard Action, and named after our four leads – Edda, Martin, Fernando and Gwenevere. You can also find them on our Auctions page – check ‘em out before they’re gone; these are the last of their kind, and are out of production!

Also, as an odd piece of trivia, our barbarian producer Joanna loves the post office. She thinks mail is magic.

Game on!

So, quite a few people have expressed to us here at Standard Action that they found us after our Season 3 Kickstarter was completed, and therefore they had no way of getting their hands on a Season 3 DVD. It’s true! We had our hands full with Kickstarter fulfillment (and still do) and had no immediate plans to put our DVD up for sale after the season was complete. Also, every last penny of our budget was going towards completing the rewards we had already promised to our backers, and so we didn’t feel we had the budget to print a stock of Season 3 DVDs and hold them until they could be sold.

We’ve come up with a solution! We will be creating DVD files for our Kickstarter backers anyway, so we’ve decided to hold a pre-sale for Season 3 DVDs for those fans who didn’t get a chance to back our campaign. That way we can understand the demand, and print only the amount we need, rather than holding stock.

This does mean, however, that this pre-sale may be the only run of Season 3 DVDs we do for the foreseeable future – there’s no promises that we will be putting them up for regular sale. If you want one, we recommend that get in on this!

It’s also important to note that the packaging and art will be slightly different on this pre-order copy than on the Kickstarter copy, but the content will be the same. We’ll be printing and shipping these directly from Canada – our friends at Fan Supported have been amazing in that they will be handling the orders; however we will be doing the fulfillment ourselves. This is why we’ve included shipping cost in the price – it just makes it a whole lot easier for them to handle if a customer decides to order a bunch of products from Fan Supported.

Here’s the link: http://fansupported.net/collections/movies/products/pre-order-standard-action-season-three.

Thank you for your support, and enjoy the rest of Season 3!

VANCOUVER – It looks like famous actor Juju Bentspear has taken finding a new adventuring party into his own hands! The handsome kobold, currently looking for companionship in our newest set of auctions, has been spotted on popular dating website “Tinder.” Bentspear, star of Season 2 and Season 3 of Standard Action, is “just looking for a lady to enjoy the finer things in life with,” in his own words.

With interests ranging from music and working out to “trapping and ambushing adventurers,” how could media darling Juju fail to find a companion for those cold, dark afternoons underground in his den full of shiny things?

The appearance of high-profile celebrities like Bentspear on sites like Tinder does beg for an examination of the current challenges single creatures are finding in today’s modern dating world. How is it that a kobold of this obviously great physical condition, evident sensitivity and huge talent is not able to find companionship through the “usual” kobold channels? What has happened to LFG boards, meeting someone in a tavern, or the romance of falling for your fellow trap-maker? Is it time to take a sober look at the reptilian dating scene, and break down the social boundaries? Who’s to say that adorable Juju’s lady love couldn’t be mammalian? Avian? How about both? Owlbear, anyone?

For those interested in knowing more about Juju Bentspear, visit his auction listing here, or learn more about him on his Facebook page. And if you see this handsome face on Twitter, be sure to swipe left. Err, right. Whatever.

(Also, thanks Greg.)

One of our Kickstarter rewards for Standard Action Season 3 backers was extra audio files – up to 30 seconds of extra audio, of your choice, recorded by one of our lead actors – Tara, Joanna, Edwin or Daniel.

When we sent out our surveys, we received a lot of fantastic requests for audio, and we will be sending out the first batch of files today! There are a few straggler files that are taking a bit of extra work, but they should be sent out by tomorrow at the latest.

If you are a “Bard’s Tale” backer or higher, and you want to claim your extra audio, but you did not specify the audio you wanted on your Kickstarter survey, you won’t receive a file in this batch. Send us an email at watchstandardaction@gmail.com, or update your survey to tell us the details of your order. We have voicemail messages going out, game introductions… even songs!

Enjoy!
