I want to thank you as well, Bill.  Could not ask for a better, faster response.  Class act all the way.

Updates on several fronts. First, thanks for your patience on shipping. I have invested in some bomb-proof shipping materials, that should arrive shortly. I expect to ship all back orders Monday or Tuesday next week. Next, I have in my hands (literally) the layout proof of Fane of the fallen (PFRPG version) and Matt has completed the S&W conversion, which Chuck is laying out now. Tsar 5 is also in layout, and should be ready to be posted in a week or so. The Complete S&W Rulebook is in final editing. Rowena has maybe 5 more pieces of arta to complete and we will pass that book to Chuck.

Strange Bedfellows is next up, Matt will start the S&W conversion today, and the PFRPG version is ready to go thanks to Skeeter Greene! On the short book front, most of the planned ONS and SNS books are done in one version and awaiting translation into either S&W or PFRPG. Art has been ordered for all of them, and Robert has been cranking out maps. Splinters of Faith 1-4 are all done and edited, interiors done, and maps are done for 1-2. Rick will have the cover done very, very soon.

We are all on track for November releases for most of these as planned, but we have to make sure that Chuck gets some sleep too. We have picked up several writers (new and old), and I think may of you will be quite pleased when you see a few of the names. I will have many new book titles and announcements soon. One hint...does anyone like Viking adventures?

The boxes must be pretty impressive. I was on the phone with Bill when he first saw them, and he said, "Okay, let me just get these into the house." Then there's a pause, and "Holy crap, these things must weigh 75 pounds." Then there's another pause and I get, "Okay, hold on, I've got to put the phone down..."

My replacement copies arrived in perfect condition, swathed in bubble wrap inside a cardboard box.

Just wanted to say thanks for the great customer service

Glad it worked out. I bought 500 of those boxes last week--they seemed pretty nuke-proof.

Hi Bill,

Can you tell us when the cut-off date is for hitting the button for the full bells and whisrtles hardcopy with the 'bonus' material is? Is that the $125 Premium subscription? And do you get PDFs if you go for the Premium Hardback (to save you the wear and tear on reading the hardback)

Cheers,
Ian

I saw in the June 2010 news updates that subscriptions close in October of 2010, but no specific date mentioned.

probably another month or so--its only closing so I can plan printing. 2-3 people are still buying it every week; so i want to hold off as long as I can to support that; but soon (I'll give 30 days notice), I am going to have to cut it off just for cost logistics.

If someone hits the $125 button, does that get you the hardback with all the bells and whistles? And does it include the PDFs? Or is it better to buy the PDFs and then offset them against the hardback? I'm still a little confused about how this works.

I'd like a set of PDFs to read and I'd like the hardback with the extra stuff for my collection.

Gets you the hardcover and pdfs; not the softcover modules. I only added them because lots of people wanted them.

Shipping is separate.

That's just the ticket then. It's what I'm after. Now to put the funds aside.
Thanks, Bill.

I am also trying to figure out a "deal" on the other series--shipping is the hardest part

Its been tested!!! The postage cart now works, and should be up (allowing Tsar 1-4 to be ordered easily) by Friday. Thank you all for your patience (especially you Ryan). Books will ship Monday. In other news, Splinters, Fane and Tsar 5 are at the printer. Chuck is layout out the rulebook and Bedfellows. Ursined is next.

I am going to take pre-orders of Fane and Splinters next week, but will not ship until the rulebook ships. Hard to release a book when the rulebook is not out yet. Besides, I want a few surprises about the new rules to be secret for now. I am out of town until Friday, so email etc. will not be accessable until then.
