I hoped to get the books all shipped out two weeks ago, then last week. There's a reason why it's taking so much longer than I'd hoped.

Personalizing books is time-consuming. 

The rest of the books are coming, and I apologize to those who still haven't gotten their books yet.

Dreamscarred Press Sends Spheres of Power Some Love

2 likes

Dreamscarred Press's upcoming book "Steelforge" includes a whole bunch of magic items, and the author contacted me last week to inform me that they'll be including some specific Spheres of Power items, including items specifically designed for SoP classes!

There's a thread discussing the book on Giant in the Playground's Forum, and you can find a playtest document here.

I know quite a few people who swear by a combination of Spheres of Power and Dreamscarred Press's Path of War, so it's awesome to see this kind of official cross-publisher support. Take a look and see what you think!

Hello everyone, just wanted to let you know that we're back from Gen Con, we're caught up on the business side of things, and shipping has resumed. If you haven't yet gotten your book, it should either be in the mail now or will get into the mail sometime next week!

Meta Feats and International Backers

4 likes

Whenever I hand-sign a book, I like to make each one individual. Some get a little bit longer of a thank you, some include personal references if I've had lengthy interactions with the backer, and some get one of my 'Meta-Feats', which provide a little tongue-in-cheek benefit, often with a once per session or once per campaign limit.

However, because of the venues we're using for international fulfillment, I've been informed I can't specify which book goes to which backer. This means that all members of the same geographic area will be forced to get the same message. Because of this, international backers will be getting slightly longer messages and a few more meta feats, as a way to make up for that.

We're in the middle of fulfilling Canadian orders now and, being a dual US/Canada citizen myself, I may have gone a little bit overboard with making fun of America's stereotypes about Canada.

So Canadian backers, I apologize you'll all be getting the same message from me. To make up for that, please enjoy being able to body check people on the ice, being masters of the frontier, and stopping combats through the power of being Canadian.

The Books Have Arrived

Spheres of Power and the shipping equipment all arrived today, and packing has begun. This is weeks before I was expecting, which makes me happy.

We'll be doing the shipping in waves, and I'll let you know when to expect your books. We'll be doing email tracking, so you should get an email from USPS when your book is ready to head out.

There are some of you who have not yet filled out your surveys. Know that we WILL NOT be shipping a book to an address that has not been confirmed via the survey; enough time has passed since the initial addresses were collected that we want to verify everything before sending packages out.
