Paid for In Defense of Thuil.

I won't be at the NTX, would be it possible to reserve one copy each of The Great Minecart Race and Scavenge the Sands?

Thank you,
Jorge

Just paid for "In Defense of Thuil".  I too would be interested in copies of these other adventures (if possible) and will not be able to attend NTX.

Thanks, Dane

Sorry to have been a slacker!  Paid for In Defense of Thuil via paypal gift.  Will send you my address (as if you don't already have it!) via pm.  I would like a copy of whatever else i can get! Not going to NTRPG Con, sadly.

For those of you who wish to prepay for the NTX books, I'm charging $15 apiece.  If you are buying more than one of the same book, then it's $25 for the two (Thunderdave, cdenham, blackmoor).  misterspock, $35 for three of the same book.

I'll have a bunch with me in TX so you can wait until then to get one if you're not pre-ordering here.  You can also pay me for them at TX if I'm bringing you other books too.

Thanks,

Thom

Update...

6/9:  All international plus a few US packages mailed (roughly 1/3).
6/10:  another 1/3 packages mailed today.

Will finish mailing all by tomorrow.

Note:   We have a seriously disgruntled USPS staff in my little town.  Mailing all of them at once gets me major attitude.   :roll:

Frustrating when you get attitude for asking folks to do their job :)

Thanks for the update, looking forward!!!

Thom,
Invest in stamps.com. It has helped me tremendously. I have encountered same issue with the post office. An hour or more at the post office buying postage with a person just plain aggravated that I bring in a few dozen packages to pay them to ship. Then days later the stuff is still sitting at the post office (tracking notification).  
Now I do it myself and drop it off. No standing in line, just drop off and go.  

By the way, I read your latest and it's a fun adventure. Excellent little series!


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