Hey there David aka Radovarl aka Go-Captain Suzdal aka 3rdmilleniumgames, is this your third ID you got going now?  You are a joke...

I still havent received mine yet.  Course when I picked up CotSK and ToB off of Ebay I experienced pretty much the same problem.  Either the modules got lost in the mail or they were never shipped.  I sent an email to deogolf and within a couple of weeks they had arrived.

From Strategic Review #3's lead editorial:

'...the good Mr. Hendrick "reviewed" CHAINMAIL in a highly uncomplimentary manner. I ignored what was written, for surely most hobbyists could be assumed to be able to read this "review" for what it was worth and in light of Mr. Hendrick's talents otherwise. As an example of the comments he made regarding CHAINMAIL, the most amusing was his assertion that heavy cavalry was rated too high, imagine! In a period where the armored horseman dominated the field of battle, heavy horse are too strong! Anyway, the learned Mr. Hendrick subsequently "reviewed" DUNGEONS & DRAGONS, again in a very uncomplimentary manner -- after all he had gone so far as to play a game of D&D as a Cleric, completely armed with such edged weapons as spear and arrows . . . Again, this so called "review" was so obviously inaccurate and biased that I ignored it completely, although numbers of letters and telephone calls from irate D&D fans who had read the comments and wished to let me know that the "review" outraged them assured me that Mr. Hendrick would not escape totally unscathed. Eventually the magazine which retains Mr. Hendrick as a "reviewer" did print a contrary opinion -- how could they ignore a counter-article written by Mr. James Oden, President of Heritage Models, Inc.? This brings me to the point of the editorial. The axe that Mr. Hendrick has been grinding so loudly and long has been exposed.

Gary Gygax'

So as you can see, the Acaeum's characteristic rants are part of a longstanding tradition, that of irritable constipated old men perhaps, but one nevertheless. In fact, Rob's current role is one of family tradition:

From Strategic Review #4's lead editorial:

'TERRY KUNTZ, currently hard at work on the final draft of the "Robin Hood" rules (which some readers viewed at GenCon), has assumed the position of Service Manager.. so get mad at him from now on.' [emphasis added]

Who is this jack-off?  I've heard the name Radovarl before, but not the others.


Let mirth prevail!

I think if you haven't received the module then post here, if you have and want to comment on it's contents then open another thread.  But since PPP isn't releasing anything new and all the problems have been documented in this thread, we should move on.

I am also still waiting on mine. I've already contacted PPP...so I don't really even know what to do at the moment.


Hmm, no, I don't have a gambling problem, I'm winning, and winning is not a problem. That's like saying Michael Jordan has a basketball problem, or Def Leppard has an awesomeness problem. So why don't y'all pour some sugar on that?

I haven't received my order yet, but I'm in Quebec so things often take longer to arrive.

I haven't rec'd my standard edition(s?) yet, mandalaymoon, just my limited editions (which I picked up at Gary's funeral).

I'm not at all sure that's the case, Shane.  I haven't spoken with Rob since last weekend, though, so I'll see if I can catch up this weekend, and get some sense of when then aforementioned-announcements will be announced.

In the meanwhile, if folks haven't received their packages by next weekend (for USA orders) or in two for international orders, please post here and we'll address them.  That'll allow time for whatever vagaries exist in the USPS to work themselves out, I imagine.

Thanks!

You'd think that multiple copies ordered at the same time would be shipped at the same time, but that's not my experience.

I received one of the two copies I ordered in the mail box today. Ordered both copies at the same time, on the same order, but only received one copy.

And of course, it was bent, since it seems that it was too much of a bother for RJK to stick a piece of card board in the mailer.  :?

Six months for half of my order, and damaged to boot. Way to go Pied Piper!
