The project definitely lived up to its name.

Yeah shame, because I've made a few points on the KS comments, but Bill has really got the jump about it. He seems to think that because he refunded me, I'm not allowed to comment or highlight flaws in his timeline.

I think he's personally (and he's admired it) screwed up big time. I know there were other circumstances which he shared in confidence with me, but ultimately, his promises of meeting deadlines isn't even close to be funny, and unfortunately I think that will impact PGS negatively. Which is a shame because the quality he produces is great.

And considering I gave free illustrations when he first started out all those years ago, he seems to think I've got a personal agenda against him.

But all I've said to him is, meet your deadlines, don't over promise, and either run PGS as a hobby (and therefore don't promise the earth and deliver nothing) or give up full time work and then concentrate on PGS as a business and he can meet the targets he promises.

However, that makes me overly critical apparently...

Or at the very least know when to throw in the towel and admit to funders that it went poorly. It has been my experience that the vast majority of people are very understanding as long as they are KEPT INFORMED.

For anyone waiting, Bills latest post on the Kickstarter states that 30-35 sets are left and everything will be completed by the end of this weekend

If form is anything to go by, it'll be down to 40 sets left to shift and finished by the end of the month :)

Or as he's "out of town" with "no laptop access" things are a bit delayed ....

Yep, me too sounds like the same story we've all heard since 2015 or 2016 or whatever.  Either way I'd sure like to see what I paid for.

I hate posting in this thread because it feels like piling on... assuming these boxes exist (we've seen pictures, right?), some strategic fulfillment would go a long way to easing the collective frustration.


I draw the line at collecting... Dallas Television Role Playing Game

Did we need: The Magic Dump

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

I have seen/held them in person. Bill had boxes at NTX in May, looked great, and once they arrive I know people will like them. Unfortunately, well, you know.

I think it's unfortunate the Acaeum members haven't received them, I would've thought they'd the first shipped.

I haven't received anything either - but I did add a bunch of stuff after the kickstarter ended - an additional boxed set, 5 notebooks, codex of arch-villans, black stone, and a tee-shirt.  My guess is I'll be last to get anything - if at all.

I don't doubt you'll get it, I just question the timing accuracy and apparent failures from one month to the next

I have no horse in this race, but after seeing this thing getting ready to hit its 6 year anniversary, perhaps some gallows humor is on order:

This thread should be titled: "The Cataclysm is not here".
