He's offering $22.00 shipping to US from Canada(Xpresspost USA with tracking and insurance).  Is there a cheaper way to ship something like this from Canada that's just as safe/good?  He may not be flexible, but I'd just like to know what options are out there if he's willing to discuss the matter.  Thanks! :)


I would suggest sucking it up. I don't know what it is about Canada Post, but my family and friends have lost so many packages from them, I stopped sending anything bigger than a mail envelope without insurance. And after being in the US, I have never had a problem with USPS. The $22 sounds almost like what it would cost to send a package to Canada from here (plus the usual eBay-seller-eye-gouge).

Yeah, I sucked up and paid.  :?   It wasn't going to be cheap no matter what.



Also, I e-mailed the seller for the DCC #35 below and the shipping to the US is $25.00.

So, does anyone know/remember when Noble Knight's supply of the 1E Rat King modules are supposed to go on sale?

No announcement yet. He usually sends out a mass email.

Were both the GenCon modules 1E or just Rat King?

Both the flip book and Rat King, but I believe the flip book was a "gencon only" release, whereas the Rat King compilation was also going to be released through Noble Knight.

Just had a look at the listing page and did not see anything showing quantity in stock, etc.
Out of sheer curiosity, where did you find that number?  :)

Edited for typo...

Supposedly got mine -- will only know when they actually arrive in the mail. Only want them for more low level adventures... there really aren't enough of those.

Interesting to note that the Saga of the Rat King will have a Noble Knight imprint, so I guess that would make it a distinct printing from the GenCon release.  The flip book did not mention any differences.

Rakeesh is correct....which makes one wonder A. How many copies they have available, and B. How many out there are going to hit the 36 copy max at once?  Also, which is going to be the more sought after "Rat King", the regular or Noble Knight version? Hey, DCC collectors actually worry about stuff like this.....!  :D

Anyway, got a few additional copies. Be interesting to see how soon this sells out, that could say a lot about how many there are out there.

Got mine. Given the short run at Gen Con, I'm betting there aren't more than a few hundred at Noble Knight, tops.

Dungeon Crawl Gazetteer #35 only a little over $10.00 with three hours to go.  Shipping to US is $25.00. :)
