Have a question?
I didn‘t receive print issue 1 or 2 yet.
Any news on delivery date?
@Cory Second issue is at the printer now! It'll be shipping as soon as we get it in hand. I believe you will get an official statement about that at Gen Con in just a few weeks.
@Andy I just sent you a direct message through Kickstarter about this. Thanks!
any news on the second print issue coming out to backers? any news on if there will be more?
i have been loving the fiction blogs on the goodman-games website, man i wish there was more sword and sworcery or even sword and planet offerings. Paizo had a great run of fiction but none of them are able to be bought digitally, i wish someone would pick up the rights to those print editions and put them up digitally. ah well, that is what abebooks is for, hahaha
I haven't received my digital copy. :-)
@Mick I've been trying to explain to the Skull about a web presence and he's starting to understand that it will further his reach and influence. The problem is that his minions are pretty busy with issue 2 right now. And a more regular web presence will require concentrated effort from additional minions, so we're still discussing how that would work.
@James McGlothlin Only the Skull and his minions have seen issue 2.Final art is in, layout is complete, and we're re-reading and proofing right now. In the campaign we promised middle of the year and we will hit it, for none of us minions wish to suffer the Skull's wrath!
I still haven't received issue #2. On the way?
Oh, Munificent Skull,
Is there any chance of this outstanding mag getting it's own standalone website? Where's the best place to receive the Skull's commands through the series of tubes that is the interwebz.
Mag is great btw; digesting it and savoring it and haven't even gotten into extras yet...
The Dreaded Skull hath arrived in Ohio. I scrape before its magnificence.
Rec'd in Arkansas today.
Arrived today bundled with my other GG KS goodies. Looks FANTASTIC! Thanks much!
Got my box of GG goodness today! Thanks!
@Vadim That would be my expectation, yes.
@Jason Any day now. Keep an eye on your mailbox.
Hi, I'm just wondering about if the shipments to Australia are on the way? I haven't really kept a close eye on this, but curious to know.
If your bundling stuff, might I get my order with my MCC box of goodies?
No rush, just wondering...
@John I understand your frustration. Trust me, we worked through a lot of options on this. The quickest one overall is the method we chose. The fact that so many projects came due at the same time created an odd situation. In a perfect world everything fell into place in due course, but with circumstances hitting the way they did this is actually the fastest way to get books to as many people as possible in as short a time as possible. As to HTWAMTDS...so sorry!
And it's not torment. It's anticipation! Right? ...right?
I hope you guys will consider doing something different for your fulfillment next time. Some backers got their stuff a month ago and some of us are still waiting. Do you always ship to people in Ohio last, or is it alphabetical by last name? :-)
I had a similar experience with your Kickstarter for "How To Write Adventure Modules That Don't Suck." On that one, I swear some people got their books a full two months before I got mine.
Also, I got an email from you last Monday (4/2) saying that you had shipped my copy of Into the Borderlands, but it has been nine days now, and it hasn't shown up. Why must you torment me this way?
@Stephen Do not panic! As others have stated, we aren't going by backer number. There's a lot of moving parts to this one (and the others, as Tony suggested--we're bundling where possible), so things are shipping at a steady pace.
Received this and Dungeon Alphabet today in the same box...constructive criticism on the packaging methods left in the DA project page...s far as the book, great work as always as one can expect from GG..
@Stephen, backer #84 here. I don't think they're going in order.
@Stephen they are coming... Goodman Games always follow through. No need to be worried, Man!
I'm backer #416... shouldn't I have gotten mine by now? Kinda worried...
@Ryan They, in fact, ARE still going out. I just got a new note about a batch going out yesterday, actually. So, yes, it still might be in the process of getting to you. So sorry about that, but we promise we're moving them as fast as possible. Thanks!
So are the USA order still going out? New York here and was just curious as to the shipping status. Thanks!
I got my Legion pledge a few days ago. Very nice! Thanks.
@Geraldo So sorry that the book hasn't shown up yet. The orders are being processed as fast as possible, so you should see it soon. (And the overseas orders are processed overseas, so they'll ship on their own schedule, btw.) Thanks!
@Raven and @David Bessenhoffer I'm so sorry for the delay! I sent messages to both of you today. Thanks!
Got my copy a little while ago, and it's absolutely gorgeous. The paper you used is fantastic. Loving the first story. Keep up the great work!
I sent a message about the damaged and bent membership card and never heard back from anyone. Has anyone else heard back about this?
My copy arrived in Hiroshima today and it looks great. I am looking forward to diving into it this week.
Guys, I'm wondering if there's an issue with my order? To this day, I still haven't received my printed copy and I'm in the US????
My copy arrived today in Italy. What can I say? Great job, looks awesome and in these days I'll read it. :)
...in case that wasn't clear, go to the top of THIS page, where it says Created by Goodman Games, click on Goodman Games and then when THAT page pops up, select the CONTACT ME button. That will get you to the people who can help.
I'm thrilled to hear that the copies are coming in and people are loving what they're seeing.
In those instances where something has gone wrong, please send a message to Goodman Games on Kickstarter! They’ll get back to you. I'd address any issues myself, but I'm on a secret assignment for the Skull, in an undisclosed location.
Mine came in today and it looks fantastic. Everything was in great shape and well protected by the hard envelope it was in!
Am enjoying both the mag, and the EXTRA stories for us Legion of the Skull members! Bwa ha ha ha ha!
Hey guys - got my copy and it looks absolutely fantastic, except the lower right corner got smushed in shipping, and the membership card came folded in half. Any chance of exchange for replacement?
Woo boy this book is nice!
Got mine! For some reason I was expecting a small pulp book, this is huge and chock full of goodness!
I got my package in the mail today, Everything looks awesome except for the cardboard Legion of the Skull Card, the opposite side of where you sign the card most of the writing has been torn off but not all the way through the card and the card is bent length wise.
@Paul Stay tuned for further information... >.>
For issue #2, is there going to be an option to buy it in ebook format?
@Seth Thank you for that! Goodreads is a huge part of the reader community, so your help promoting us there is very appreciated.
I started a Goodreads item/book entry for "Tales # 1" so backers can start leaving reviews, and adding it to their libraries. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/37832574.Tales_from_the_Magician_s_Skull__1
Oh my! It looks like my Chapter of the Skull has been listed under the Colorado chapters and not Delaware... oh well, I guess there wasn't enough space on the page.
And the art! I forgot to mention the art.
Yeah, it does look great. Quality layout and still retains that garage-rock-band-community-fanzine-badass-feel at the same time. Now I just need to read it.
WOW! The digital copy looks great!
I am not seeing the download digital content button.....
