Same here, although I ordered a second copy for a fellow acaeum member.

After reading the warning on using Firefox 3, I decided to try out Safari to make the purchase.  I had no problems whatsoever.  It's version 3.2.1.

It seems to be impossible to order to France... Website states "We are unable to obtain any USPS shipping methods at this time, please choose from one of the following shipping methods." :( And the only available method is for only downloaded products... so no shipping cost...

Recommend emailing directly to [email protected] and asking about shipping price to France.  I emailed them about my ordering problem and received an email reply from Eric Shook within an hour.

I just sent an email as you suggested. My order was already taken into account because I received an email for it but I didn't pay because of shipping problem. No one encountered the same problem?

Guess Order 97 is for 5 copies - we could place bids on who it is.


I'm Order 97, according to my confirmation e-mails. For the record, I ordered 1 of pack 1 (to actually use) and 1 of pack 2 (to sit on the shelf and look pretty).

My order is timestamped 11:02 Eastern. I was logged in, with the product pages in two separate browser tabs when the clock struck 11. Just had to hit shift-reload twice, then start adding things to the cart. (If you think that's overdoing it, you should see me registering for Gen Con events.) The only reason is took two minutes is that the shopping cart has too many intermediary screens.

No PayPal issues for me.

We have the same problem in the UK. I ordered and paid no shipping (like a download) just to secure my copy, and then I'll pay the shipping when they tell me what it is. That way I get my order confirmation number (#116) and I know my copy is secure.

Hi,

the ordering system didnt recognise my account, but I re-registered, and it all worked fine.

At 13:12 Eastern Time I was Order Number 129.

Cheers,

Does order no. 134 mean there are 66 copies of the numbered edition left? Or are they not related. Cos' if someone bought one limited numbered edition, and not the other, then there would no longer be 200 of each available. Unless everyone is buying superduper collectors' edition limited availability bonus pack 2, which I did, incidentally.

Just wondered if there is any correlation between order number and number of copies left.

I don't think there is any correlation.  I had order #96 but got copy/set #1.  I think the order number is the number of orders PPP has received on all of their products on the new website.  People buying multiple copies would also have the same order number.

If they are up to order #134, then they have had almost 40 orders today - but no idea how many copies this means were sold.

I think Mars indicated he was order #96 and got copy #1.  So if you are #134 and assuming most people purchased the deluxe set, then I would guess only 40 to 50 have have been purchased.  That's still a pretty good number for the first day. :)


Hello Mrs. Cleaver, Theodore.

Gee, Mrs. Cleaver ... That certainly is a lovely dress.

One would have assumed no.1 of Demonic Arcane should have gone to whoever was the first to preorder way back when? Presume that was Mars.

Kinda like the look of the artwork. Don't know about the dragon's nose of ERKAT. Looks a bit pants. I'm up for buying the whole lot again in PDF if anyone's gonna publish them that way.
