Lack of communication is the death of any retail project.

At this point I'll take my 400$+ back as a refund.

Anyone received the AD&D Cataclysm set? I've emailed Bill twice now but still had no reply.

Have not received it either.


Available now from Die Cast Games: Night of the Black Swords by Allen Hammack (Author of C2-The Ghost Tower of Inverness) with artwork by Jeff Easley and Diesel.

Apparently they're all almost shipped.

Not convinced and with his continued silence here and on the KS website, I think Bill has killed PGS himself unfortunately

When I helped him out with artwork way back in the early days of PGS he was a real decent guy. Products were great. But 6 years into this KS cash cow disaster and he's still silent and not supplying the final goods which is a real shame. I thought better of him.

To where, Siberia?  Many attempts to contact, zero response.  At least Palladium sent me a Robotech boxed set before folding with the rest of my pledge.

It has to be obvious by now that they are never going to be sent to the people who paid for them. How much was the project funded for?

I do not know how much the project was funded for.  However, I'm out $200.

Isn't there some method of getting your money back if a project like this isn't followed through?

Over $18k

Luckily I was refunded, but took an age.

Bill states most US parcels have shipped.

Sorry I have not update here in awhile. I am working through the shipping and a little more than half way through. I am slowly digging through international orders and those with add-ons to make sure they are accurate.

I'll be out of action this weekend moving my daughter away for college but back at it again on Monday. I expect to have nearly all base rewards and rewards that included the Black Stone out by the ending next weekend.

Thanks
Bill


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

Bill has contacted me and asked for verification of my address which I gave.  I have received an email (today) from him stating the package is in the mail.  I will update here when I receive the package.

Not that we deserve preferred treatment or anything, but given that this site is the project's namesake, it might be a good idea to send a couple of the first sets out to members.  Bet that would generate some positive posts in this thread.


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

Based on the number of items that he claims to have shipped, it would seem there are several thousand packages floating around in the USPS aether. Definitely a case of "I'll believe it when I see it".

I'm sure they'll all arrive, but like you say, the numbers don't add up on how many he says have been shipped as it keeps changing

I can confirm that after all this time (6 years I think) I received my box sets yesterday.  But all is not well!  I leafed thru the booklets and did not find the subscriber contributions.  There was an option in funding ($100 extra I think) that allowed you to submit an adventure to be published with this project.  I know many of us funded at that level.  However, I did not see any of the adventures published. I could have missed them, but I do not think I did.   After 6 years I'm happy to get anything at this point, so "no big deal" but would have liked to see the adventure I worked hard on published.

The box the set comes in is gorgeous.  It opens sidways with tabs that tuck into the side.  Coloring of the box is fantastic.  Limited artwork in the booklets with individual pieces of artwork used multiple times.  This is just a quick "eyes on" review.  I did not have a chance to read any of it.

Martin, this is the latest post on the KS from Bill, which explains the lack of contributor items, dated Aug 23rd

"FYI, Collaborator book is nearly wrapped up. I have a couple pieces of art coming in and a few more maps to wrap up.
Probably another couple weeks five or take."

As per the box sets, I don't doubt it'll arrive, but expect you'll see it maybe 2019
