Presumably only you know the answer to this -

This item IS NOT available to the general public. It cannot be seen at my store/spotlight by chance. You have to use the link I gave to have access to it.
This will pretty much guarantee that the "print run" will be no higher than those interested  it(I'd top it at 30 given the current atmosphere).


or am I missing something

I posted a link for it.
The item IS NOT for the GP, IT IS for the acaeum members that wanted one.
I'm sure I didn't write it that cryptically

Reminder for all members wanting the 2nd print, just order it directly with this link:

See, I found it! and only 1 page back.

Dude, its only been a few days since you announced you were putting it up for purchase.  I dont know about most people here but when it comes to ordering from Lulu I like to get the most bang for my buck.  I usually try and buy several items at the same time and wait for a decent coupon code to pop up before pulling the trigger on a purchase.

I didn't think you were being cryptic, I just wondered what your expectation was. And as I said, presumably only you can tell what the take-up on this will be.
I'm sure it will sell well, over the coming days, and its handy to have the link re-posted.

I would be interested in knowing how many of these sell, is this information you would be willing to disclose further down the line?

I would be glad to post how many copies the members purchase. It's not a state secret or anything. And I apologize to everyone if I seem, "strange"...
I've always appreciated the support of the Members, and thought that was obvious.
Ergo, in the future I will strive to make that clear.

Yes. You make that perfectly clear.
And for some reason go out of your way to be rude when I haven't done or said a damn thing to you.
Please don't PM me any more.

Wow, you just made $125 on the "pre-pub" and now you're seemingly getting impatient that the members here aren't snapping up the 2nd print edition??

I'll go out on a limb and say that these past few days have seriously lowered you're professionalism in my eyes and I do not feel that I will be supporting your products any longer, as it appears to be; a) a money grabber by yourself & b) you appear to be very self-important, way beyond the quality of the products you write.

And, as an aside, as you have already given a few members here a PDF version of this, (which I appreciate isn't as collectible as a print copy) I think you should respect your customer base I little better.

You are not the only one he has been PMing.
He sent me a PM to correct my spelling.
I like to think that he simply wishes us all to better ourselves to help make us better people...  :idea:

Why are you guys continuing to hassle Robert on this?
He posted an apology on the last page.

If you do not like Roberts product then simply do not purchase it and move on; stop posting to this thread and stop sending Robert and those of us who do back this sort of work silly PMs.

Sheese... how bored must you guys be?
Maybe you could just give it a rest?

How long will it be available? I'd like to order but, like several of us, I am waiting to get several items in my cart to order (to avoid several shipping cost).

Who exactly are you referring to here besides MetamorphosisSigma and ashmire13?  I dont have a clue why MS feels the need to annoy people with his PM's.  Maybe he needs to lay off the herb.  As for ashmire....he obviously has an issue which he feels strongly about and is using the forum to voice that concern which is entirely within his right.  And at least he did it in a way which I thought was professional.

Gnat the Beggar wrote:He posted an apology on the last page.

While I dont necessarily feel that he needed to post an apology, I dont really understand why there was the need to post the query regarding why none of the Acaeum members had purchased the 2nd print yet.  If that was the reasoning for the apology I dont believe it was posted until later when he edited the post after 1 am.

Gnat the Beggar wrote:Sheese... how bored must you guys be?  Maybe you could just give it a rest?

You've been a member here long enough to know it doesnt usually work this way Gnat.  And I really dont mean to be a dick here but you could heed the same advice when it comes to posting about Noble Knight Games' Ebay pricing and descriptions.  We get it....you think they are idiots.  :wink:

I went ahead and purchased the Crystal Skull adventure along with Hell's Outpost last night after I found a coupon which basically paid for my shipping.  Unfortunately there is nothing else of note on Lulu that I want or need right now.  Seems like most of the other OSR publishers are putting their wares on RPGNOW instead.

Not that it matters now since you already posted your response, but I was not referring to you above.

EV1 here knows that NKGs e-Bay listings had been pretty bad for a very long time and they needed to be called on it.
Sorry if that bothers you, but it needed to be done; I was just the first to do so (but not the only one).

Ah, but you misunderstand my intent.  It doesnt bother me when someone calls a seller out for a ridiculous price or an incorrect or misleading description.  I've done it many times myself and even emailed Aaron Leeder directly regarding the Chainmail debacle.  But when someone repeatedly does it over and over again after they have already proven their point.....that is what I was referring to.
