Printing has begun.

But I am kind of between a rock and a hard place right now. I cannot draw out enough funds from paypal to cover further printing for about another week. According to my investigation, Paypal only lets me with draw up to $500 per month, max. I assumed that was calender month, 1st to 1st. But such is not the case. I cannot access enough to cover printing and shipping until the 8th it appears.

But just hang in there, I am slowly working on it. I begged my wife into buying a printer cartridge for the maps, and it ran out of ink after 48 pages (the maps are in color!) So, I am about half finished on that.

Will continue doing as much as I can. Will update you as things proceed.

Okay - so I looked away and there was another module getting printed?

Is there still a copy available?

See FIRST post in this thread.
Looks like slot #20 of 20 is still open.

I'd like#20, if that is still true.

It is. It was. It's yours now.

I was totally stunned by your post. For some reason I thought you were already on the list.

Update

Was finally able to get paypal to cut me a check.
Will resume printing as soon as it arrives. I expect about 3-4 more days.
Otherwise, all is going as planned, albiet--slower than the previous modules.

I expect I might be able to mail all these out by this Friday. Will keep you posted.

This is great.  However, a side note to this.  It might matter to some folks, and not others.  If we print these out, it puts it on different paper stock than what you send the printouts on.  That creates a variance in each copy out there.

...Just a thought... <Gryn>

I think the MS is coming with the standards signed front sheet, and the inner cover is being offered in colour in case you want to download and print it. I don't think the cover is part of the original MS, but there if you want to provide a more finished product.

I'd prefer it ship with an inner cover (not just the signed sheey), but a B&W cover may be more in keeping with the range so far. I for one would prefer the BW cover.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . chicken and wild rice soup.

I now have my copy of D5.
Arrived this afternoon.

Contents of package:
Front signed sheet, numbered x of 20.
With 10 numbered pages of the module text.
Maps:
1 location map (Wilderness)
1 Underworld Tunnel Map Sheet with 9 long tunnels shown
3  Set Encounter Map sheets: 5.1; 5.2; 5.3
1 The Outer Bailey/Inner Bailey/Great Doors
1 Tower with City Wall and Inner Bailey w/ tunnel entrance to Outer Bailey
1 Inner/Outer Bailey Wall with Trap Door and Tunnel to the City and Dungeon Sewers entrances
1 General Map of the City of the Forgotten Dwarves
1 Detailed Map of the City of the Forgotten Dwarves
1 basically a blank sheet labeled "Sewer Dungeon" with square grid  

Is the last sheet listed above supposed to be blank with only the Title and square grid?

Oops,
Gnat--that sounds like one of my master maps(that I decided not to do!)got into the pile of OUTGOING!
No, no one should have a sewer dungeon square grid page.
Oh well, you truly have a unique copy, my friend.
Just keep it, it was mostly just squares anyway... wasn't it?

Everything else sounds right.

Yes, just the Title at the top with a square grid is all there is.

Thanks.
They are all unique without an extra sheet though... 8)
