Howdy fellows,

The pre-order period for the Limited Edition of Bottle City is now ended. The pre-order period for the Standard Edition will start in approximately two weeks.

Both Tower of Blood and The Original Living Room are available for order. Tower of Blood will start shipping about a week after Living Room.

Thanks for your patience and your support! We expect to post a list of Bottle City supporters to the web site in a few days.

What was the final count on the Bottle City LEs to be printed?

I am pretty sure that the final total was 51.  :)  It would have been 52, if I had a bit more cash on hand....

It may have been 52 after all, I'm not sure -- someone else may have gotten in under the wire.

I have yet to do the final count but I'm pretty sure that it's fifty-one;
the record will be straight when we post the names and copies-issued data
on the website.

BC LE Update:

I have received the final copies of the Bottle City LE maps from the printer and they are tremendous!

80# coated paper like the old texaprint in a way (they did us a favor and upped the grade, woohoo!), 22"x27", excellent foldability (no creasing or cracking) and excellent readibility from the file as reproduced.

Jason Braun did the layout for this, so thank him for his excellent work when you finally see it.

Good start to a part of the project which at one point had me biting my nails. :)

Just wanted to let everyone know that these are shipping now, and Rob expects to get the last of them out the door in about a week.

I think Rob might want to take a bit of a breather after putting out Tower of Blood and Living Room at the same time. My guess is a week or so. But don't quote me on that!

I'll certainly post here, at DF, and at K&K when it's available for pre-order.

I got to see Falconer's ToB and LR last night when he and Marc Tizoc and I met to chat GH stuff (which we do on most of my trips to CA).  Both modules look good, I'm pleased to say, and I'm still hoping that my copies are back in KS when I arrive :D

oh yeah btw....

the packaging of the mods was excellent. the parcel didnt even have a scratch on, so much better.

mind you, the postman had already been warned that if he bent one more parcel, he would be walking away missing some teeth.

sure he was just being attentive tho...

Still waiting on my ToB to arrive.... they've got the the UK and France, surely Australia can't be far behind.

Two questions while I'm here for Robilar or one of his henchmen - when do you expect Bottle City to start shipping (rough estimate will do); and what is the latest with Merlynd's Castle?

Regards


Mike

BC should be able to ship within a month or so me completing the final edits.  I'll be chatting with Rob about that timeline soon (perhaps even tonight), as well as the next projects in the pipeline, since he's been mixing it up a bit here and there.  More details soon!
