Perhaps you saw today's update?  1000 mods or so going out via a fulfillment company during August.

Maybe someone with more experience in publishing can correct me, but pdfs of some of these mods were released in December.  How long does it take to get from there to physical copies?

Similar experience with my Tarina kickstarter, the pdfs were distributed in March, no hard copies yet.


I draw the line at collecting... D&D Towels.

Did we need: Jade Magi Sewer Crawl

Shoulda been: ".. from Pangreenia to Floratopolis, from mystical Treeonia of spectral Forests to Schruborial dimensions."  - The Forests of Leng

The update was actually what got me thinking about this.  I doubt there is enough money to print everything plus the bonus level stuff (thousands of digest modules, basically, of which none has come out and every single one is late, at least a year for the early stuff).  Plus hiring a fufillment company is a disaster waiting to happen when people don't get their stuff, too many layers of people to deal with for most backers if something doesn't go right...

That is exactly what kept me away back then. Now I am extremely leery of kickstarters so that even if I didn't know the past history I wouldn't have backed it.

Thanks Martin, I can't remember getting it... was it a box set?  I'm going to have to look for it.

It came out, but there are many still waiting. Here is a relevant link with the latest. You may want to make some popcorn before reading :)

I received the box set.  White box with black ink.  I did not order anything else which might be why I have received mine and others go on waiting.  I will not bother to buy from BHP again.

Can't find it, I must have been confusing it with Xplorers which I did finally get...

Wow.  Ok I changed my mind after reading that, getting a 3rd party fufillment company is by far the best solution for John.  As is getting Lulu or a similar company to print any future endeavors.  It would remove a lot of the problems he seems to be having.

I pre-ordered and paid Delving Deeper two years ago (06/15/2011)...
and I just get a wrong tracking number several months ago.
:(

I have pledged for the Appendix N Adventures... and I sent extra-$$ for shipping.
:(

:?

Similar story here (minus the wrong tracking number...I was never given a tracking number)...still have my fingers crossed hoping I'll see something for my funds whether its Delving Deeper or Appendix N

Over the past six weeks, I have contacted Brave Halfling twice - very nicely - to ask about Delving Deeper and when I would get mine.

I don't think it exists.

Unfortunately this seems to be the end of what started out as a interesting game company (Brave Halfling Publishing).  I doubt anyone could look at the last two years and think BHP has any sort of future in the retro-game industry, nor kickstarting any sort of project from here forward.  The pitfalls of the publishing industry are legendary and BHP seems to have experienced every one of them in excruciating detail.  It makes you appreciate even more the individuals who are able to negotiate these waters.

I guess that makes my copy a rarity.   Still a shame how thing went over at BHP.

If Delving Deeper exists - as apparently it does if you have one - then the fault is simply not mailing it out.

There is probably a large pile of them in a closet or garage.

I am still hopeful on a few of the Kickstarters I have backed.

Metamorphosis Alpha may eventually produce.

The Shadow Realms - or whatever - kickstarter I pledged might happen.  (Pledged back when the concept was new.)

I also think there is a good chance that Center Stage Miniatures will eventually pan out with their Demons and Devils Kickstarter.

I would bet the problem there is instead they have none and would have to print up more to fill unfilled orders.  There are just too many people out there that have never gotten copies.
