Shipping Begins Tomorrow!
15 days ago – Tue, Apr 20, 2021 at 10:21:13 PM

The time has come! Your rewards have landed safe and sound at Planet X headquarters and shipping will begin tomorrow morning. The book looks awesome and the full color map insert looks particularly groovy. We changed up a few small things with this module (including higher quality paper stock) so let us know how you like it!

Here's a few things to remember about the shipping process:

  • Shipping is going out in waves. Likely 50-75 books a day, maybe more. 
  • Shipping is via media mail.
  • Tracking numbers are available by request.
  • For those of you with multiple add-ons or extra product, your books are combined for cheaper shipping. All books are protected with a plastic sleeve and hardbacks have corner protectors and bubble wrap. We put multiple do not bend stickers on each package but we do not have control over your mailman's bad habits. If they have a history of shoving stuff in your mailbox, please talk to them in advance. We will do everything on our end - including stickers and stiff inserts to prevent this, but once it leaves here its officially out of our hands.
  • If you have a specific concern about your package, please email me at and I will do whatever I am able to help you.

Thanks again for backing this project and supporting Planet X. I appreciate each and every one of you and without you guys we wouldn't be here. You guys rule!


Addresses Locking, Cards Charging and More!
about 1 month ago – Sat, Apr 03, 2021 at 05:30:04 PM

Hello everyone! 

Addresses are locking, cards are charging on those shipping and add-on charges and with any luck Glimmering Crypt of the Ioun King will be on its way to us here at Planet X next week. 

We are locked in on schedule and should have your rewards to you this month. We’re ready and shipping will commence as soon as we recieve the modules. 

Until then, check out our latest project over on Kickstarter, The Phylactery 3! 

Thanks again for all the support guys - there’s alot of cool stuff in this module - foating brain tyrants, undying curse tornadoes, ioun stone madness and all sorts of tricks, traps and devious crap to be had at the hands of the denizens of the Ioun King’s crypt! 

See you soon!

Proofs + A Few Last Minute Bits Before Shipping Commences
about 1 month ago – Tue, Mar 30, 2021 at 07:24:31 PM

Hello everyone!

Before shipping commences for Glimmering Crypt of the Ioun King, I wanted to go over (and gratefully point out) a few things in advance.

  • The Backerkit shows 90% of you have completed your surveys which still means there are a handful of people who need to fill out those surveys. Remember, if you don't fill out your survey, I have no way to get your product to you since I don't have your address. Its crucial to fill out the surveys!
  • The Backerkit has been running almost the entire month and closes out TOMORROW. If you haven't filled out your survey, please make sure to get it in.
  • Proofs arrived and were approved last week. I didn't have an opportunity to post before now but they are looking great. We actually had to go through a few revisions to get the paper stock and gloss just right but thanks to our awesome boots-on-the-ground graphic designer Tracey Steele, we were able to do just that. After reviewing the final physical proof, I can say that they look fantastic!
  • All of our past products are available in Backerkit, but if you miss out on it and don't get to it by tomorrow, you can still get everything from our friends at Exalted Funeral. The link to their site is 
Planet X Gon' Give It To Ya'
  • Shipping should begin late in the first week of April or early mid-April, right on schedule. This will be the last Kickstarter that we ship in house and from now on everything will be done through (once again!) the good folks at Exalted Funeral. This is a big step up and ensures that your books get to you faster and with better quality control.

Thanks again to everyone who backed this project. You guys are amazing and the continual support that you show our little indie games company is very much appreciated. We've got a ton of cool stuff on the horizon this year and I can't wait to share it with you guys.

Oh, and here's those proofs!

Launching Tomorrow - Something New From Planet X!
about 2 months ago – Tue, Mar 16, 2021 at 11:20:14 PM

Hello everyone!

While we're all waiting on Glimmering Crypt of the Ioun King to finish up at the printer, I wanted to let everyone know that we're launching the 3rd issue of our flagship zine The Phylactery tomorrow. The Phylactery 3 is a 48-page fantasy zine that we have packed full of content with the same heart and feel of the old school heroic fantasy RPGs we grew up playing back in the day. This thing is chocked full of cool new adventures, quirky NPCs, wondrous magical items, marauding  monsters, fell locations, relics from beyond the mists of time and all sorts of heroic fantasy resources for your tabletop games.

You can get notified when we go live by clicking below and choosing "Notify Me on Launch". 

If you like this kind of stuff we've been doing over here at Planet X, this is another dose of the same. If you get a chance, check it out!
