They have all gone I'm afraid.... there was some discussion on the issue on this thread, about 5 pages ago or so.

thanks for the info Mike! I knew it was a long shot! I still like being in the green dragon club anyway besides it looks like the $20 donation is going to a good cause so I'm still satisfied! :)

It is much cooler having your name on a module.

OK.

I have shipped all sponsor copies and tommorow I start packaging and shipping all those that came in after the sponsorship ended.

That's about 35 copies, mostly single orders.

Everything then (as of today) should be shipped by Monday and Tuesday.

I'd like to gently remind everyone of our valued customers that this is not a selective process.  Sponsors orders are always fulfilled first.

I also suggest if you wish to receive your copies of future limited releases faster, that you preorder during the sponsor drive.  This usually lasts 60 days after being initally announced.

Sponsors are the ones who help fund the print run and costs for the products, providing PPP with instant operating captal through the pre-order proccess and I cannot thank them enough.  Essentially anyone who orders CotSK after the preorder/Sponsor phase should also note the sponsors on the title page and thank them when possible, as it is they who fuel bringing the product to us all, myself included.

I'd also like to note that PPP has started the preorder phase for Tower of Blood, that the MS is finished and in the editing phase, that the lillustration list for it is finished and that the Front Cover for it is nearly finished by James Holloway.

The Team members for Tower of Blood Are:

Rob Kuntz--Co-Author
Lance Hawvermale--Co-Author
Allan Grohe--Editor/Production Manager
James Holloway-- Art/Illustration
Jason Braun--Illustration/Layout/Cover Design
Lorne Marshall--Cartography.


Thanks for supporting PPP and Cairn of the Skeleton King.  :)
That's one for all supporters of Old School and Classic Gaming.  :)

Got mine in the mail yesterday.  It looks great at first glance.  Can't wait until I have a little more time to look at it.

The only disappointing thing is that my name is spelled wrong on the sponsors list.  I know I had sent PPP an email pointing this out shortly after the sponsorship was posted on their website, though I received no reply.  I guess I should not have assumed it would be corrected.  It should be noted also that they did spell my name correctly on mailing label.  While I know very little about what's involved in a project of this scope, I would think the least that could be done is make sure your sponsors (investors) are acknowledged correctly.  I know I wasn't the only one this happenned to and it's not like they had hundreds or thousands of names to print.  It's my hope that what ever process is used to acknowledge sponsors is done better when Tower of Blood is printed.  I shall see as I have signed on for this one also.

Yeah don't feel bad, even when I got mine corrected on the site it still got mispelled a little in print and mailing envelope. :)

I have made my apologies for this elsewhere and in personal emails to those who wrote me, I slipped with a few, very sorry.  I have fine-tuned the process so that this cannot happen again, as most of these were mistkes I made in the transferring from order to ledger.

They will all be corrected in the reprint if there is a 2nd printing and I am on it for the next project.

My humble apologies again.

Rob

I am curious, but finally, how many Cairns were numbered, and how many Cairns were printed?

I am very curious, and don't blame me if I am too curious, but how many exemplaries do you have to sell to cover the financial equilibrium?

I wish you good luck Rob!

If the copies ordered fall below 300 total then PPP must rethink its publishing stance, perhaps I will sell hamburgers then... ;)
