Anyone know if the $100+ Free Shipping applied to Canada too?

I don't believe it does; a discount, perhaps, but shipping that sort of weight to Canada is pretty exorbitant... or, you could say "serleran said so" and see what happens? :)

I love this sale. :)
This gives me a chance to stock up on back issues of Crusader Magazine for a very nice price (Almost half) plus a few C&C adventures that I dont yet have.

Just awesome. 8)

If anyone in the Dallas area wants to stock up on some items also perhaps we can go in together and split the shipment up later.....
Perhaps we can reach that $100 amount and Save the shipping costs.

Although I have not yet decided on a couple of the $10 items, I am planning to spend about $60-70...

Hi All,

I have just posted a small list of New/Mint Castles & Crusades stuff in the classifieds, and offering a few bits not available through the Troll Lords sale.  This might be of particular interest to my fellow Canadians for shipping if you had thoughts of picking up any of this this stuff for collecting or reference.  You will probably receive it quicker too and in better condition. :)

Cheers!

Hi, I just placed my order - got some goodies coming soon (Crusaders & a whole stack of modules)... They kindly looked after the International shipping for me, too - so if you're on the fence, give them a call - there's some deals to be had on some quality books   :lol:

Well, a couple of members here and I placed an order last week.

With three of us ordering, the list was fairly long.
Too long to place in the message box in Paypal, so I called them and Stephen answered the phone and he was very helpful.
I sent the payment by Paypal and sent the list seperately by E-Mail.

I look forward to seeing the box on my doorstep soon.

I'm looking at the TLG sale pdf.  Can anyone tell me why Crusader #9 is listed as TLG1108 and #10 is TLG1109 but the first issues are #2 is TLG1102, etc.  Is this just a typo with an error since Crusader #8 is missing?

Probably. There are issues like that on the actual releases as well -- I know of at least one duplicate product code and another out of order. I always order by title.


Those who can, don't. Those who should not, do.

They are labeled correctly.
Issue 1 is TLG1100
Issue 2 is TLG1101
..............
Issue 8 is not missing... it is TLG1107......

I asked about the confused coding when I called to place my order and the above is what they told me.

I did not go into more detail as it was not a problem for me and it was thier business phone, but I assume that they revised it at issue 11 to help those of us not in the loop to keep track better.

1100 The Crusader Vol. 1, No. 1
1101 The Crusader Vol. 1, No. 2 (has 2 printings 2005 and 2008 that I am aware of)
1102 The Crusader Vol. 2, No. 3
1103 The Crusader Vol. 2, No. 4
1104 The Crusader Vol. 2, No. 5
1105 The Crusader Vol. 2, No. 6
1106 The Crusader Vol. 3, No. 7
1107 The Crusader Vol. 3, No. 8
1108 The Crusader Vol. 4, No. 9
1109 The Crusader Vol. 4, No. 10
1110 The Crusader Vol. 4, No. 11
1111 The Crusader Vol. 4, No. 12
1113 The Crusader Vol. 4, No. 13
1114 The Crusader Vol. 4, No. 14
1115 The Crusader Vol. 5, No. 15
etc.

They corrected the numbering with issue 13, so that the issues will now have a code of "11##" with "##" being the issue number.

I'd be curious to know if any issue past #2 has a 2nd printing.

Just curious if anyone else had trouble with receiving their order. I know some of you had trouble placing it, but have you all received your items yet?

I placed an order a month ago now (March 26) and even sent them an email last week regarding the status, but hadn't heard back. I thought I'd give them at least a couple weeks (if it were sent media mail?). Anyways, I'll try calling them on Monday, but was wondering if anyone was still waiting on their items, too.

Mike.

I've never had any problems ordering for TLG. Usually get my order within a week. I have heard about problems ordering from several people but for some reason I've always lucked out both in contacting them and getting my orders. Definitely give them a call though.

I seem to always have problems when I order from TLG.  I have not received my order from this sale yet either (order place March 29 or 30th).  Although I did get an email at the beginning of the week to say that they were going to ship it out.

Inside contents don't think so, advertisements on the covers yes.  Would have to dig it out to check over everything.

I do not know WHY, but TLG has re-numbered the Crusader Magazines again.

1100 The Crusader Vol. 1, No. 1
1101 The Crusader Vol. 1, No. 2
1102 The Crusader Vol. 2, No. 3
1103 The Crusader Vol. 2, No. 4
1104 The Crusader Vol. 2, No. 5
1105 The Crusader Vol. 2, No. 6
1106 The Crusader Vol. 3, No. 7
1107 The Crusader Vol. 3, No. 8
1108 The Crusader Vol. 4, No. 9
1109 The Crusader Vol. 4, No. 10
1110 The Crusader Vol. 4, No. 11
1111 The Crusader Vol. 4, No. 12
1112 The Crusader Vol. 4, No. 13
1113 The Crusader Vol. 4, No. 14
1114 The Crusader Vol. 5, No. 15
1115 The Crusader Vol. 5, No. 16
1116 The Crusader Vol. 5, No. 17

They took out the gap and all issues are now numbered consecutively starting with 1100 for Issue No. 1.

We received the order we placed a Month ago within two weeks time after ordering.

I recently placed another order (about ten days ago) and I spoke with Stephen Chenault (On the phone) a moment ago to ask about it.
He said he would call me back tomorrow after checking the most recent shipment of orders.
He stated that they had recently sent out a large number of outstanding orders last week from the previous period.
So, I suspect my second order is on the way here now. :)

Yes, I need to stand down from the yellow alert I started...

I got in touch with Steve today as well.  He's got everything worked out.

I must have been recovering from a Pon Farr experience or something, because my mind was not quite there.  When I sent the Paypal order last month, I typed in "[email protected]" (plural) instead of "[email protected]".

I'm admitting myself to sickbay now... :colors:  :shaking2:  :shaking:

My order arrived today and in typical TLG fashion (at least for me) its incomplete but they still listed the full value of the original order on customs and I got dinged with that.
