      I want to have everything finished and shipped by the end of the first quarter. The issue has been finishing book 7 of the series first (that and art-issues). I want to make sure the sourcebook isn't a step down in quality from the gamebook (in fact I want it to be better), but I certainly understand everyone's impatience.

      Thanks for the quick reply. Do you have a rough idea when they will ship? Been running off the PDF, really like the game, just looking forward to having a physical version.

    3. Marion G. Harmon Creator on January 9

      @Jim Sephton: Yes, due to the cost of shipping, all international backers who are receiving the physical edition of the sourcebook are still waiting to get everything shipped to them together. Sadly, this means that if you live in the UK, Canada, or Europe, and want EVERYTHING, you don't even have your printed gamebook yet.

      How do I find out where my books etc are? I'm in the UK and still haven't received any of my pledge.

      @Ben Carver,

      Go read the updates, starting with update #34. All has already been explained.

    6. Marion G. Harmon Creator on September 22

      The sketchbook will follow when completed. Glad you like the gamebook!

      I added on Barlow's Guide to Superhumans & the B-Files when I filled out the survey, but I only received the Wearing the Cape rule book. Are add-ons delayed or have Barlow's Guide to Superhumans & the B-Files not been shipped yet? Book looks great btw.

    8. Marion G. Harmon Creator on September 19

      @Jeremy: there is no soft-cover edition of the gamebook, and you added on a single hardcopy of the novel special edition through Backerkit. No idea why you got two. I've added some details in your personal Kickstarter message box.

      I just received my second signed hardcopy of WtC, the novel. I was under the impression that I'd bought a softcover copy of the game, which is what I want. I love the book...but I don't need two copies of it. How can we work this out?

    10. Marion G. Harmon Creator on September 18

      You would like to purchase the book or dice rather than return them? Sure.

      But I'm lazy. Can I just pay you more? I finished the book last weekend and thought to myself, wanting this to hit the table, a second copy wouldn't be awful.

    13. Marion G. Harmon Creator on September 18

      Woops. Well the easiest way is for you to just send them back to the return address on the shipping label (make sure to post the box as Media Mail). Email me the tracking number at wearingthecape@gmail.com, and I'll reimburse you the shipping cost.

      Got my copy today. It's beautiful! Thank you so much!

    16. Marion G. Harmon Creator on September 17

      No worries. If I do another Kickstarter down the road (a great way to print 1,000 books), I'm going to make it much simpler.

    17. Wun Dum Dorf on September 16

      ok. Thanks Marion

    18. Marion G. Harmon Creator on September 15

      The Box of Books was a category meaning "the printed gamebook plus the sourcebook." So since you pledged as a City Protector, the City Protector Box of Books added on the combined Barlow's Guide to Superhumans & the B-Files. So, one printed gamebook (+dice), one printed sourcebook (+ PDFs).

    19. Wun Dum Dorf on September 15

      Sorry Marion, I think I'm getting confused with sourcebook can gamebook, so the City Protector: Box of Books includes another hardcover copy of the gamebook we just received?

      Well, I'm referring to the base rules :-) which was the only book I ordered in hardback.

    21. Marion G. Harmon Creator on September 14

      @David: I hope that you mean you only ordered the sourcebook in PDF!

      I got my book + dice a couple of days ago, safe and sound, in Brisbane, Australia. I only ordered the source book in hardback.

      Thanks for the update, I'm looking forward to the arrival of both books! :)

    24. Marion G. Harmon Creator on September 12

      @Paul: the gamebook and sourcebook, both PDFs and print-editions. Coincidentally, your gamebook went to the post office earlier today.

      Paul Reed on September 11

      I'd like to check on what I pledged for as well, if it's not a bother. :)

    26. Marion G. Harmon Creator on September 11

      @Wun Dum Dorf: the printed gamebook and sourcebook, plus the PDFs for both.

      @Alvaro: the printed gamebook, sourcebook, and WtC special edition, plus all of the dice and the PDFs of the gamebook, the special edition, and The Archon Files.

      Could you tell me exactly what i pledged for? I recall pledging for just about everything but can not find anywhere a list of what i have actually pleged for.

    28. Wun Dum Dorf on September 10

      I know they aren't shipping yet, but can someone remind me what was in the City Protector: Box of Books? I added it to my pledge in the survey, but don't remember what's in it and the only thing I can see in the BackerKit site when I log in is the name, not the description. Thx.

    29. Marion G. Harmon Creator on September 10

      You haven't been missed, you just weren't in the first wave of international shipping. Yours should be in transit sometime next week.

      I've been hearing of peoplle receiving stuff and i'm getting kinda nervous nothing seems to be coming my way. I asume it's a being in europe kinda deal but just checking.

    31. Marion G. Harmon Creator on September 7

      No, it looks like I've just messed up the shipping. I'll send along the Chakra/Artemis Dice in their own pack tomorrow!

      I have a question about the dice add ons - it might be applicable to other people so I decided to start here.
      I received the Hero Dice + Opposition Dice in my package but not the add on Chakra/Artemis Dice. Were the additional add on dice beyond the initial set coming at a later date?

    33. Marion G. Harmon Creator on August 29

      No worries.

      Resolved!
      Thank you Marion, and the courteous and helpful people at BackerKit :)

    35. Marion G. Harmon Creator on August 25

      Please send through Kickstarter's backer email (click your link in the top right corner), so I have a record of the request directly. I am away from home, but will iron out the details with you next week.

      Then that is the option I would like to adopt for the Barlowe's Guide and B-Files, please.

      If I can get the Core Game book within a reasonable span of time I would still like that in physical format. If I can't get it from you, is it order-able from somewhere? I recognize that this may be difficult for you...

      Question: Does the offer to reduce the International Backers to .pdfs-only cover the game core book AND the Barlowe's/B-Files sourcebooks?

      Apparently I need to ask and stuff happens, awaiting the update.

    40. Marion G. Harmon Creator on August 9, 2017

      @Jeremy: I see that you have purchased Wearing the Cape: The Special Edition as a Backerkit Add-On. Nobody has yet received their hardback edition of the first novel's special edition, although it now looks like all of them will be shipping the last week of August (when they are scheduled to arrive here).

    41. Missing avatar

      Jeremy on August 9, 2017

      Any idea when my physical copy book (bought as an add-on) will arrive? I paid for the hardback on 21 MAR and got the PDF, but nothing else.

    42. Marion G. Harmon Creator on August 9, 2017

      FedEx dropped off the dice today (oof, that's a lot of dice), and there will be an official update tonight or tomorrow.

      Looking for an update for those who added some dice and awaiting the book (and tempted to ask if we can just get the book and postpone the dice if we got the bundle of books)

      Good morning, Mario. Somehow you missed the Kickstarter notice. I've sent a new one for you; your PDF is waiting for you at DriveThruRPG.
