I'm still missing the Collaborator Book, but I feel for others that don't have any of this.

Personal opinion: Only book worth anything in this set is the one that expands upon the published material.

One could say NONE of the books are worth anything if you don't receive them..................

Would anyone who did receive their books or pdf be kind enough to help me out?

Despite being a backer I was cut off from the project due, it seems, to not letting up on Bills case.

If anyone received their pdf set as expected, would it be possible to obtain a copy myself, as I received a couple of the first items in pdf for years back, but then it all dried up. It’d be nice to get something from this shitstorm if anyone’s willing to share.

You have my word it won’t be released on the interweb

Odd ... I wasn't involved in the KickStarter, but I just PM'ed Bill on FaceBook in DEC 2019 and nicely asked if I could purchase a box set. Within hours he replied, and sent me a PayPal invoice. There was an issue with the PayPal payment, and Bill kindly offered to include all the KS extras to make up for the hassle.

The box (and the promised extras) arrived in short order, despite me living in Canada.

I'm terribly sorry so many people have had / are still having so many issues getting their KS rewards ...

Classy move after all the delays for original backers.
In the beginning I did rue my decision not to back this as the project itself sounded great. I did believe though that after KS Bill would probably release it to retail as a great money spinner. I thought that that ship had sailed but maybe not, perhaps Bill has a load left over after fulfilling all of the pledges - all of the pledges are fulfilled, right?

Nope, looking at the last comments, it’s still not completed


Kickstarter

That makes Bill a grade A schmuck

This has caused me so much frustration I’ve just given up on the books I’m owed.  Those KS comments really tell the tale. I’m sorry for everyone still dealing with their rewards.

It’s been over a year since Bill logged in on here, so that suggests he’s dropped the Acaeum as a place to come, having mugged off all of us who supported him get pacesetter games off the ground.

I’ve said it before but just to reiterate. If Bill hadn’t been such an Acaeum “name” he would have been absolutely crucified here, and rightly so. If truth be told he should have got a lot more grief from the members here because of the name on this disastrously run Kickstarter. (But even when this started Bill had a history of letting people down - there were threads here about failed ebay deals going way back.

Hey now, I've been nothing but relentlessly sarcastic and condescending from the start!
I have very few triggers, but people who take advantage of others and/or ignore commitments that THEY made do tend to piss me off.

Someone should scan in all of the contents of the books and throw them out there as freebies to put a dent in Bill's attempt to milk people for more money.
Utterly disgusting, accepting and fulfilling a new order when so many are unfulfilled. Has anyone thought about the possibility that he may be able to be hit with a class-action lawsuit? At the very least Kickstarter should be alerted, perhaps he can be banned from any more attempts to steal.

bbarsh wrote in Shady Dealers:First, I will go back and read through some of these later tonight to answer objectively and coherently. I will say that at this time, I know nearly all sets were shipped. As everyone clearly is aware, the massive length of time it took me to complete and deliver this project was certainly, well, horrible. That is in me and I have always taken responsibility for that. The problem with delivery of some sets is that KS has removed some
Buyers who are no longer on KS OR WE HAVE. BAD EMAIL ADDRESSES. I have noted this in updates.

So I will our this right out there, if you have not received your set, please email me:  [email protected]

Again, I have made plenty of mistakes on this and I am truly sorry. It doesn’t go a long way, but there it is.

I will read back through these and respond as I can. Especially to backers. Speculation by those who aren’t backers is fine. I’m a target-rich environment regarding this so it is what it is.

Respectfully
Bill


Bill posted that in the Shady Dealers topic on 06-MAR-20. Looks like he's trying to make things right ... can' hurt to reach out to him if you still haven't gotten your KS rewards.

Utter BS.
The "problem with delivery of some sets is simple": They were never shipped. No longer on KS? I wasn't aware you could quit. He would have had every backer's physical address right from the get-go, no? So it took SEVEN YEARS to tell people you needed their e-mail addresses?
He was able to sell a set to Metal-Demon in December pretty quickly. Either Metal's set was just sitting around (unshipped to a backer) or he is still producing them; either way, it is yet another lie.
The simplest explanation for this fiasco is that he blew part or all of the KS money, either by underestimating the cost of production or intentionally. If nothing else, he should have refunded everyone the money. Personally I can't even conceive of doing this to anyone, much less Acaeum members who by and large are a really great group and who backed him solely because he was a known figure.
There's not much that ticks me off more than a bad lie. To me, it is one of the worst insults you can give to someone. Basically, Barsh is saying "I think the backers are so stupid that they'll believe this".

Light reading for Barsh.

Unfortunately more BarshShit as he’s not been back to answer the critics here, he’s just caning everyone for what he got out the KS, which is a real shame
