yeah i am really excited man. its gonna rock big time though i am damn sure i wont feel that way while doing it. the MDS is at the end of march - my 3rd time in 3 years. the mongol rally is a car race - the student version if you like of the gumball rally. your car has to have an engine capacity of LESS than 1 litre, ie 1000cc. so you can imagine the fun you have choosing a car :)

gonna be an absolute scream, specially with the two guys who are doing it with me. a scot and a south african - 2 of the funniest guys i know.

RJK on PPP boards wrote:The first wave of 30 pre-orders for BC were shipped yesterday; probably 90 more orders to fulfill. My apologies, but I'm now just coming up to speed. John (Deogolf) drove me to the Post Office to do this as my uninsured vehicle was recently stolen (on the 7th of this month) and I have no immediate transportation because of that. Yep. When it rains it pours. John will be helping me mail the remaining orders over the next week, so everyone please thank JS for this when he gets back from the WinterDark Con in Lake Geneva (where he was heading after dropping me back at home).

So, now that a Bottle City has actually been delivered, are they still for sale?

LE includes a single-sheet poster version of the BC map (on nice quality paper, not the magazine paper they were using in the LGG and Dragon), as well as a reproduction of the original manuscript.  In addition to the module, and whatever signatures/certificates/etc. that Rob worked out for BC (he'd been experimenting on different ways to improve those).  

SE includes the poster as two 11x17 sheets, probably not on as nice a paper, but I don't recall for sure, and does not include the original ms. reproduction.  

Both versions include a URL to allow you to download my transcription of the original manuscript, broken out on a page-by-page basis with editorial/textual notes.  I don't think this was posted yet, though---will ping Rob on that again tonight.

Nice of you guys to mail out the LE's first....very good idea since those guys paid a lot.  Can't wait for my copy, I'm very happy to see everything is finally going on schedule.  John you and Allan get big gold stars for helping make this happen.

Thanks, Mike!  If I recall correctly, Rob mentioned to me that your order was in the batch that just went out! Should be getting it in the next couple of days!

Hi Deogolf -

Any idea on when the international orders will go out? Are they mixed in with the USA copies, or will they go out in one batch afterwards?

Regards

Mike

Someone in Germany (Sir Clarence, I believe) said that he'd received his. So, who knows?

A general PPP directional/future update from Rob:

RJK on PPP boards wrote:I am discussing this with several outside parties interested in PPP's future and will have a general announcement ready at the conclusion of these talks which could take upwards of 2-4 weeks.

During that time I will be releasing The Stalk, the Boreal Level and The Machine Level to keep the company product flow at least at a minimum; following that ERK's Arcane Treasury & Daemonic & Arcane are due to go into production. The Stalk is 1,000 words away from being finished and I have already begun writing The Boreal Level.

There is also a good chance that in 6-8 weeks time that we will be able to release PPP's first novel--The Twelve Labors of Drystaff, penned by me in 1988--but more on that later. The FC art is near finished for it (by Herman Lau) and we are looking at the edit done for it by our esteemed Gronan, this as of yesterday.

All other projections are on hold until the conclusion of the business talks, which are so far, I am happy to say, 100% positive.

Sounds like Rob is finally getting outside help/backing...great news.  An entity like PPP is just too much for one man to run, particularly if health issues pop up.  Hopefully Rob will end up being more of an idea man, adventure writer or creative force and others can handle the business aspects...I wish him luck.

So now that the module has been released, what do you think?  

A) Best module ever!  I'm not sure how I got along without it.
B) Pretty good module.  I'll incorporate into one of my existing campaigns!
C) Good module.  Has some interesting ideas and encounters. Will play.
D) OK module.  Ok to read.  Ambivalent about playing or DM'ing.
E) Bad module.  Problematic encounters and structure.
F) Pretty bad module.  Are you serious?  A V8-golem.  Will not play!
G) Worst module ever!  I wouldn't send this thing to C-tard in an M-bag!  

I'm looking to hear your feedback since I missed the pre-order for the limited edition and have not ordered the standard edition from PPP yet.

Thanks in advance.  :D  :D  :D
