On June 3, 2020, the project gave an update on its status and announced that the physical format of the zine would be cancelled and that the zine would continue as an exclusively digital project so as to not lose funds in production expenses and shipments and have mroe to donate to their charity of choice[5].

  • Dragoon Bundle ($10 USD) - Digital Zine
  • Lindworm Bundle ($5 USD) - Emojis, Stickers, Social Media Headers, Icons, Coloring Pages, Wallpapers

The deadline for preorders was originally November 30, 2020, but was extended from December 1, 2020, to January 8, 2021[7]. The orders were mailed out on January 11, 2021[8].

At the end of the project on January 13, 2021, the mods announced that $165 USD was donated to the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation[9].
