[!] An Early October Update

Hello Realm Dwellers!
I have a couple of updates for everyone, and I know many of you have been waiting to hear back. I'm still working on responding to the rest of the folks in my messages, but here is some info that will apply to everyone!
The new factory is working out great for us! Michael is on site, overseeing the newly trained staff, and they are once again producing tables for our first shipment to the US. I'm waiting to hear back on whether we have a firm ship date, but it should be any day now!
US Tables On Display
This is some fun news, especially if you live in the PNW. We have a few tables that we've brought over from China (not using the planned freight method), and we're negotiating to have them in use at some local businesses! I'll have some locations in the next update.
The Refund Update
As I mentioned in the last update, we have had most of our cash moved to China for covering production costs. The extended delays and high likelihood of tariffs have eaten into profits, to the point where we need to focus on ensuring we have capital to pay for operations between now and our retail debut. NOTE! We still have enough money to fulfill our backer's pledges, and do some regular promotions, but we're at the stage where actual available cash is not readily at hand.
Therefore, I will ask for folks who have requested a refund to please wait until tables have begun shipping. In events of extreme hardship I can make exceptions, but I do ask for your patience while we get through our first production run. Note that this does not affect pre-orders.
New variations and products will appear in the store this week!
That's everything for now. Keep an eye on the @WoodedRealms Instagram for updates on when you'll be able to see Wooded Realms Tables in public, and for our shipping updates on the latest ones!

UPDATE on this UPDATE: Since I've recorded this video, the US has decided to postpone tariffs through the holidays. Our tables potentially stand to benefit from this change, but it won't be guaranteed. We will keep you posted on the tariff situation as it develops. ~N
