      Hi Greg, I just received back yesterday the first copy from the post office. I will make sure a new copy gets mailed out to the address you provided. This should go out on Monday. Sorry for the issues.

      Has this shipped to my address of 5332 Rimwood Dr, Fair Oaks, CA 95628?

      Paul - I apologize I didn't get back to you sooner. Here you go. I hope this answers the questions. Please let us know if you have more questions or find any more issues. This helps us out. As first time authors, we have learned a lot from this process.

      There are new blasphemy, soul entrapment, soul transfer and voodoo possession powers but neither Arcane Background lists them as available powers.
      We made an error in not adding those to the list. Thanks for pointing this out to us. We will need to get the .pdf updated.
      A number of edges and hindrances are marked with an asterisk but I don’t see an explanation of why.
      Those are the edges and hindrances we were given approval to use from Pirates of the Spanish Main.
      When talking about bar or chain shot, an above decks damage table is mentioned but isn’t in the book. There are 2 standard damage tables, though.
      We were made aware of this error after the book went to print. The .pdf has been updated. We apologize that this was not found beforehand.
      Ships Orders
      Am I right in thinking that there is little need for most characters to take the Boating skill as it will generally be replaced by the Ships Order skill? (Exception for the Captain as he needs Boating to Pursue another ship)
      The ship order skill is meant to be used during a ship to ship combat. There could be times when the Admiral could call for a boating skill roll outside of combat.
      In combat the number of guns that can be fired is limited by the number of PCs. NPCs can’t be ordered to fire?
      This is similar to the allied extra rule. You are actually rolling for the NPC’s.

      @Brett Weihig
      Any chance of an answer to my questions of 20th April?

    5. Brett Weihing Creator on

      Hi Greg, I will look into it as all books have shipped. Sorry for the inconvenience. - Brett

      I have not received my book. Was it shipped to my address?

      So when are you going to start releasing the stretch goals?

    11. Brett Weihing Creator on

      Hi Scott,
      We have gone to print so unfortunately no. Our last pdf was the final it was the one with the correct Spanish cross flag on pg 73. Thank you though.

      If we find errors in the PDF, where can we send them? I've got a few from my latest reading.

    13. Brett Weihing Creator on

      Hi Nick,
      There were a couple of errant characters and formatting issues we changed in the pdf. Also the wrong Spanish flag got past me on page 73. All of these have been fixed in the latest pdf.

    15. Brett Weihing Creator on

      Hi Timothy,
      We sent to you the second copy on Sunday. We will try again either tonight or tomorrow. Please check your spam filters as well. It should be coming from DriveThru RPG. If you do not have it by tomorrow afternoon please email me directly at highwater2017@gmail.com and include the DriveThru RPG email you use for the account.

      Hi I have not received any of my PDFs. How do I get them? (Second time asking.)

    17. Brett Weihing Creator on

      Hi Adam, the thinking behind this was that you would not have the powers from our book if you took AB(Miracles) from the core rules. The powers in our book are specific to the witch hunter and vodouisant. Hope that helps.

    18. Adam Loyd on

      @Brett: Thanks for the response but that wasn't what I was asking about. What's their Power List? Do they have access to all powers? Or should they be limited to keep them balanced with the other ABs?

    19. Ron

      Even though this appears in My Library, Drivethru says "We're sorry... This title is not available."

    20. Brett Weihing Creator on

      Hi Adam, Yes AB(Miracles) are available per core rules.

    21. Adam Loyd on

      Hey, I got one quick question. The two new arcane backgrounds list their power list, but we don't have one for Miracles. I assume the AB works like the core Miracles background, but what powers can it choose? All?

    22. Brett Weihing Creator on

      We look to fix these errors, thank you John.

      Did a quick pass on the PDF and saw some errors. 1) There are quite a few errant bookmarks in the PDF. 2) On page 127, Cannonball Pounds has two date entries rather than ranges.

      Thanks Guys,
      Rick Hershey did some good work with the layout and artwork.

      PDF is gorgeous all - well done! I foresee mining the material for various settings even if I don't get a Buccaneer game underway.

      PDF looks great! What's the expected date for the 1-sheets?

      Hi Travis,
      I can make the change manually to change the pledge level. I will do so, it will leave a 20 dollar balance and you will need to renter the survey. I will also resend that to you. Thanks Travis we appreciate the support.

      I was considering upgrading my pledge from digital to softcover physical, but didn't see an option for that on the pledge manager. Did I just miss it? I can add a book in Addons, but not upgrade. Thanks!

      Hi Martin, As of a short while ago we have reached all of our stretch goals. In regards to the decks this means in both cases (Cast of Cards, Playing Card Decks) you will receive a code for Drive Thru Cards that will print cards at our cost, but you will have to pay the shipping. In regards to the additional decks on the add ons, this refers to any extra decks you would like to purchase beyond the free ones. I hope this helps. Thanks for the Question.

      Sorry if this has been covered elsewhere.... I'm looking to finalise my pledge and I'm a little confused regarding add-ons. Mostly due to the word "additional" being used for the two card decks. As a swashbuckler backer, do I get any of these decks (noted that I'll pay for additional postage)? Or do I have to add them on?

    39. Brett Weihing Creator on

      Hi Nathaniel, Currently we are looking about 180-200 pages. This is just an estimate as we still having to go through layout and art. Thanks for the question.

      One single dollar left... that's mildly annoying.

      Thanks Steven this has been a fun project and we are so close to opening up our one sheet adventures. We have some great names on that list. Check out our prior updates. Thanks.

      Hey guys, I was just doing some catching up on backlogged podcasts, and heard you talking about this on The Wild Die. It sounds amazing, and I'm super happy that I was able to make it in on this before it ended!

      Love the sound of the sea battles and the treatment you have for ships!

      Thanks Pete, it was a fun interview. I am excited for everyone to see what we have.
