    1. Creator Visa | Tormented Dreamgoat of Eternity 6 days ago

      Received the Godlearner and Nysalorian certificates as well as the personalized dustjackets. Damn hard to choose whether to use the Godlearner or Illuminate dustjackets...

      Still missing at least the Molad d20 and Greg "archival" map set. Everything so far has been top quality though.

    2. Creator Scott Mayne on December 28

      Any update on the premium rewards for high level backers?

    3. Creator Ming on December 14

      I am still missing a reshipment of maps.

    4. Creator Mark Buckley on December 8

      My maps arrived in the UK today - thanks.

    5. Creator Matthew Hayes on December 6

      The missing maps have arrived and look great. Thanks!

    6. Creator Matthew Hayes on November 10

      Has anybody who was missing maps received them yet?

    7. Creator rcronan on October 31

      I have my book:, delivered to my place of work last Friday, about ten minutes after I left for a week. Still, I have them now.

      Nice. So nice.

      Heavy. So heavy.

      I have to carry them home now!

    8. Creator Jonas Karlsson on October 28

      Grr. UPS. Oh well. Hopefully they'll eventually get around to actually delivering the books rather than just fruitlessly driving them around town and failing to deliver them... 'Scheduled delivery information is not available at this time. Please check back later.'

    9. Creator Tapani Mylly on October 28

      Reading throught the books it only now, after getting the physical copies, dawns on me how much work and love has gone into them. This must be the most detailed fantasy world ever and I'm very happy to be part of it through my past and future games. Great work and thank you very much!

    10. Creator Robert Andersson on October 28

      Received the books, OMG! I'm lost for words... most impressive!

    11. Creator Matthew Hayes on October 24

      Although the latest update suggests that the maps went out with the initial shipments.

      "The shipments we have sent out should have the following range of items in them, based on what you ordered: Two Volume set of the Guide, Argan Argar Atlas, 6 poster map set (folded) of Genertela, and the 24 poster map set of Glorantha. Epic as those things are, those are what we refer to as the "core" products."

    12. Creator Mark Buckley on October 23

      Update 65 (Aug 12) talks about missing maps being sent later on due to a damaged shipment - it does say 6 maps too.

    13. Creator Mark Buckley on October 23

      Ok. I was thinking it was unlikely that I'd missed them, but you never know...

    14. Creator Matthew Hayes on October 23

      "Just in case I've missed them in the books somewhere"

      I double-checked the packaging and every page of all three books. No maps tucked in. (And at the size described, they would be quite bulky).

    15. Creator Mark Buckley on October 23

      Sooty, where were your maps? Just in case I've missed them in the books somewhere.

      The Add-ons and the FAQ on the main page say it was originally 4 maps, but was expanded to 5. Not sure why 6...

    16. Creator Matthew Hayes on October 23

      Ah well, I'm sure the maps will turn up eventually.

    17. Creator Magnus Widqvist on October 23

      Got it today. Very big books. And heavy. And big. And gorgeous beyond belief. Did I mention that they also were big?
      Am now deleriously happy!

    18. Creator Cultist of Sooty on October 23

      Ooh, I meant to say I backed at Rune Lord/Priest level, too. So I imagine you should have the same set of maps.

    19. Creator Cultist of Sooty on October 23

      This was six folded pages of nice maps. Sorry, I'm still having to work so I haven't had a proper chance to look at them.

      I'm sure that the number of maps in the folded poster set changed during the backing period. And it's long enough ago that I can't remember what the final answer was. I have a vague memory that the number of maps increased.

      But there are definitely six. I counted them. The label on the shrinkwrap was: "ISS2005-6P GENERTELA 6 POSTER SET"

      It's 6 maps, each the size of 8 A4 pages, covering the whole of Genertela. Same style as the maps in the Guide, like say on page 276 of volume 1. But without hexes.

    20. Creator Matthew Hayes on October 23

      I'm expecting a 4 page set with folded rather than rolled maps.

      "RUNE LORD/PRIEST: High Priest reward level, plus 4 folded Central Genertela Maps."

    21. Creator Mark Buckley on October 23

      Looking at the add-ons, the 24 maps set comes rolled in a tube, so I suspect it might ship separately.

      6 page maps set? I can only see a 5 map or 8 map set.

    22. Creator Matthew Hayes on October 23

      I wish I'd ordered the 24-map set now! How does the 6 page set look?

    23. Creator Cultist of Sooty on October 23

      Having giving it a once over, the rest of the books seem okay and are quite, quite lovely. But I'm also missing the 24-map set that I ordered as an add-on.

      I've got the 6-page map set, but not the 24-page map set add-on.

    24. Creator Andreas on October 23

      Got mine today (in AT)! The package was intact, and it included the maps.

      The delivery guy laughed at me when he dropped in my arms and I stumbled under the weight :)

    25. Creator Cultist of Sooty on October 23

      Mine has arrived, but both ends of the package were gaping open. One end of the package was soaking wet, too.

      Most of the contents were shrinkwrapped and seem to have survived okay, though I haven't had a chance to give them a proper check yet as I only just came home from work.

      But the Argan Argar Atlas wasn't shrink-wrapped and clearly got very wet. It's all wrinkly and has ink that has run.

      I'm rather disappointed.

    26. Creator Matthew Hayes on October 23

      A heavy package in the hallway when I got home. Three books have arrived and look magnificent! However, there are no maps for me either.

    27. Creator Ben Quant on October 23

      Got mine at about 10.30am today. Wow, stunning.

    28. Creator Mark Buckley on October 23

      I've just heard that mine has been delivered - apparently it has the 3 books, but there are no maps included (5 maps for Rune Lord/Priest I believe) - are they being sent separately? The package was not sealed at one end, and there is no packing note so I don't know if they were included or not. Thanks.

    29. Creator Thorsten Schubert on October 23

      My copy arrived yesterday too. Im totally blasted by the quality. Please, go on and move to the next Kickstarter!

    30. Creator André Schäfer on October 22

      Mine just arrived (Germany here). Joy!

    31. Creator Mark Buckley on October 21

      ditto here for the 23rd

    32. Creator Nils Meissner on October 21

      I got the shipping notification as well! (UK)

    33. Creator GhostWolf69 on October 21

      Tracking Number here as well... planned delivery OCT 23! ... :-)

    34. Creator Iznogoud on October 21

      Tracking number received in France :-D

    35. Creator Ben Quant on October 21

      Just received my shipping notification and tracking number in the UK! :-)

    36. Creator GhostWolf69 on October 14

      Seconded! An update would be nice. it's been 12 days since Pegasus got the EU stuff in house. Is it shipped? or will it happen after Essen?

    37. Creator Andy Leighton on October 13

      I guess we are running into Essen time, so Pegasus are going to be a bit busy for the next week. But it would be great if we could get a brief update.

    38. Creator Steve Ellis on October 13

      Can we get an update from Pegasus Spiele?

    39. Creator GhostWolf69 on October 7

      Yeah, have the EU packages gone out?

    40. Creator Steve Ellis on October 7

      Anyone in Europe got their parcel from Germany yet?

    41. Creator Rick Meints on October 2

      see latest shipping update!

    42. Creator GhostWolf69 on October 2

      Chomping at the bits for a new Update here...

    43. Creator Rick Meints on September 26

      please see latest update.

    44. Creator Chunk on September 24

      Any news about Europe ?

    45. Creator Jonathan Geere on September 19

      And arrived in Europe? Or not? Time for an update!

    46. Creator Jonathan Geere on September 16

      3 days to landing...

    47. Creator Randel Evans on September 10

      I've had the same issue as Ming. I can see why they might not want to ship rolled maps, given that the form factor would require them to send them separately at an even higher shipping cost, but personally I would have made arrangements to cover the extra cost. They're beautiful maps, and it would be nice to have them in a pristine, frameable condition.

    48. Creator Savage Robby on September 7

      Finally got a chance to leaf through my copies after seeing them initially at Gencon. Man, these are _nice_. I mean, really nice. So worth the wait.

      (thumbsup)

    49. Creator Ming on September 4

      I picked mine up this morning, but haven't had a chance to look through them yet. One thing appears to be incorrect though; I asked for and got confirmation that I could get my maps rolled rather than folded for some extra cost. My maps are folded. It might seem trivial, but it's important to me as I plan to get them framed.

      I find this somewhat frustrating as I've tried four times over the last couple of months to remind various people about it so they could avoid shipping the wrong thing. I haven't received any responses at all.
