Send $35 paypal to:  [email protected]

Distribution List:  screen named followed by number of copies  

PAID =  P after your quantity. If you paid, but do have it marked correctly, please pm asap. Include name, screen name and paypal name (in some cases all three seem to be different). This means everything is ok unless their is a note after the "P".

Send Address = I probably do not have a correct address for you. Or I am not sure it is good. Or I don't have anything. However, as I simply do not know everyone's screen name, it is possible it is mailed already. I not sure who you are.

Pay = Don't get stressed. You may have paid, but I can't match up your real name with your screen name. Or more likely, your paypal name is not a match for either. Yes, some people have paypal accounts that are not in their name. This makes things very confusing. Again, no real worries, but please let me know if you actually paid (trans number if possible).

International Buyers: Just add $8 unless you are from Canada (add $4).

Send payments to: [email protected] via paypal or let me know and we can work something out.  

Lastly, don't automatically assume your book has not been sent because there is note regarding payment or address. I mailed a bunch out to people who I simply do not know or remember their screen names. Also, just because I have mailed stuff to you before, don't assume I have your correct address. I am sure I can dig through my Pacesetter address book, but I don't want to make a mistake.
Also, if you see a name on here of someone who does not post that much, and you have any contact with them, let them know to look here! I already know there are several people who have not responded since we took reservations. I really don't want to cut anyone off. But at a certain point, it just has to be over. I would much rather just mail out all the copies than have to deal with extras.


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

I think it should be left up to the author to decide the type of print run. Either way, I would like to reserve a least one copy.

IMHO, since this was such a small print to begin with, it would stand to reason to keep it to "Reservation Only" status, but there could be a demand that exceeds 100 copies as well ... so, how about both?

In other words, with the author's permission, there would be a Reservation Only run that would be for Acaeum members that would be in its original form, then a 2nd run with the new art, layout, etc. could be run (100 copies) and see how those sell. If the demand is there, then 2nd printing ... how's that for a Solomon-like suggestion ... no babies need be cut in half  :wink:

I like PM's suggestion. I am up for both.

In any case, my vote is in as a Plan B.

I'd go for the limited edition, but I'd be happy either way.

(2 copies)

I can also go either way.

Edit: this has to do with my preference on whether to go with the limited edition or not....bbarsh!   8O

Limited, with two copies for me please!

I'd also buy two copies of the regular print run, so if both get done, that's great too :)

First and foremost,

THANK YOU

All of you have been fantastic, the guidance and positive feedback I have gotten in the past week has been insane. Ian, Mark, Bill ... I can not thank you enough for all your time and effort answering my plethora of questions.
I'm just an like little kid right now, pulling out my old books, mini's, maps and going nuts.

My thoughts on publication;

A: My priority is to protect the value of my first "run" and those that bought them. I am not a "collector" but I am well versed in the "print" value concept.
B: I love the idea of doing a "Acaeum Collectors Edition" for you guys / gals ONLY ..and yes, I will sign and number each one (buys stock in Ibuprofen).
C: When all is said and done I want to actually Finish the entire series RD1 > RD7 and make it atractive to the 21st century geek ..opps, I mean gamer  :lol:

I am leaving most of this up to the experts, I'm just a crazy, creative writer not a publisher or collector.  What was it that Carnegy said " I did not get rich by being smart, I got wealthy by surrounding myself with people smarter then me."

On a side note;
For years I have wanted to hang that RD5 poster in the house. My wife always argued ..this is not a bachelor pad anymore, we don't live in a gaming store.
This past weekend my wife said ..I think we need a better frame for that, if it's going to be hanging in the living room. hahahahaha  Thanks guys ..one small win for the gamer in me.  :mrgreen:
Hey been married a long time, I take all the small wins I can get !!!

Once again, Thank you all.

IMO, you should go for an exact reproduced facsimile of the original. This should (hopefully) get you around any latent IP issues with TSR's infringed IP. Or at least brush it away as an excuseable oversight, I'm sorry, won't do it again, Sir. Reservation only, signed, numbered etc.

Then I'd go for a colour cover, rewrite to comply with OGL, and bring it into the Pacesetter product range much akin to the revist of PotVQ etc.

I had suggested splitting the project and having the facsimile done as part of NTRPGCon's works, as I believe both products are viable, but having both under the one publishing house I suppose makes some form of commercial sense to which I am not aware.

Good luck folks. As a former owner of an original RD1, I don't feel the need for a limited edition reprint, but you can put me down for a standard edition rewrite, and good luck with these endeavors, Bill.
