The Tale of Ord is composed of four packages. They are interconnected, but they are intended to be played in order from 1 to 4, and each has a defined endpoint. The overall story of the game develops over the course of the four packages.
When ordering the game, all four packages will be shipped in a single shipment and they cannot be purchased individually.
Each package contained various papers and some form of physical components, including a wooden box in the fourth package, and a wooden amulet in third package.
The first 50 pre-orders received a free "handmade amulet" upgrade. There were an additional 75 handmade amulets made which could be purchased for an additional $15, until they were sold out in Dec 2018.
