Well, not to "defend" the MPC exactly, but this is sort of following up on a post Genii made on the Kickstarter page about improved customer service. I needed a replacement certificate of authenticity for Dragon Tooth as mine got damaged in transit. I emailed them, and not only did I get a response in a couple of hours asking for a picture and my shipping address, but when I emailed them back with that info, they responded in about ten minutes and confirmed that a replacement would be on the way soon. The difference in customer service, even from when I first discovered them and it was the original crew, is very striking and again a sign of an upward trend for them after three recent successful products in a row.

I bought the Vulcan Dragon Tooth, and a few days after it arrived (or a few weeks), they were offering it at a discount. I wrote to them and pointed out the inequity and received the discount. Amazing! It's been years since I've seen that type of customer service from the MPC.
The conflict between light and dark has taken many shapes, and many names. One specific battle has been especially difficult to trace or date. We know it takes place in cycles and depends on the alignment of celestial bodies.
There are a group of devotees who follow a dark King. For as far back as we know, they have been on a single-minded mission to usher Him in from His beyond to ours. They have been foiled at every cycle by an equally single-minded effort from anonymous watchmen.
Now, as we approach a new alignment, we pray these watchmen are standing guard and reinforcing their numbers. It is time to fight, and time for you to make a choice. Will you take a stand?
“An update of Great Urgency concerning you,” the headline states

For backers only
You click to expand the update and read more. The first few lines make no sense. You have no idea what any of this is about.
You recall previous updates warning you against a certain madness, one that roots in the mind and festers, then spreads. But what does that have to do with you?
Has someone finally learned your secret — the one you’ve been hiding for years?
You think of the poor souls who saw ‘The King in Yellow’. You think about how that play affected them — their eyes like two black stars, tears running down their cheeks like so much rain into the lake of Hali. You tell yourself this is different. You haven’t gone mad.
And yet. How many sleepless nights? How many masks do you wear to maintain your grasp on reality — or some facsimile thereof?
You think all these thoughts in quick succession, then shake them away. It’s probably just a campaign update, you think (you hope).
It’s not, though. It is a warning. And now there are only a few lines left. You read them quickly, your eyes half glancing at a word before moving on to the next, hoping to find meaning, perhaps even absolution…
But there is no such thing. It is almost over. The final sentences reveal nothing but the feeling of a mystery unsolved — thinking of that dark secret and the havoc it has wreaked on your mind.
You rest your eyes. It is then that you see him — moving toward you on the dark lake.
Yeah, they warned that shipping would likely be expensive (imagine if they'd hit some of their other stretch goals). It's hard to know, but they did say that the Artifacts would be quite heavy compared to their usual items (fifteen pounds for just the base experience and not counting the stretch goal Artifact that they hit).
I also found the way they did the Gallery Ticket cost very odd, with it initially costing $999.99 and then giving you a...$999.99 discount.
diggitydoodog: I've had dubious documents for 2 years now and finally went to work on it. Would anyone on here be willing to PM me the answer or post it in a spoiler so I can check the solution?
