Rather than post a couple of comments, we thought it might be easier to publish a quick update as to what's happening with your goodies! As we've said countless times before we want to be as transparent as possible with all of this, so you'll know what's going on.

Shipping

We've paid all of the import duties required to the various authorities and everything has cleared the various customs requirements. We've been informed by the various distributors that they can't access the CrowdOX information portal due to their security policies, as such we're formatting all of your orders onto individual shipping sheets. 

So we've booked a couple of days off of our day jobs to get this done as we know how important it is!

We're beginning this right now, and hope to have everything done by Thursday morning so we can send it to each company in a manner they can upload to their system(s). 

What's next?

We're going to wait a little while until you all have the game in your hands before we re-launch Tales From The Hollow Earth, but this just means that you'll get to throw yourself in at the deep-end with all the lore and little nods we've put inside the rulebooks. Work has already begun on the translations, and we've paid the deposits for professional translators ... no google translate for us! No sir! We'd probably say the wrong thing and offend way too many people!

Once that's been done, we'll be producing packs of language dependent add-ons that we'll ship to backers ourselves, as we'd rather you had the game ASAP and then a set of replacement cards, tiles and a rulebook to just swap into the game you already have. It might cost more, but we think it's a nicer way of doing it.

Chapter & Verse

This Friday ... we're launching the first boxed set of Chapter & Verse miniatures based on HP Lovecraft's work! Dreams in the Witch House features 7 gorgeous resin miniatures that are ready to go right now! Want to see them ... take a look ...

- exciting stuff!

We'll be checking back here for comments as usual, but are going to put our heads down and drink way to much caffeine to get all of these spreadsheets sorted! 

We'll send these all of Wednesday night / Thursday morning so please if you do need to change your address, do so now and e-mail us - hello@workhousegames.com so we can get it changed last minute for you!

      @azdaphel: "That is not dead which can eternal lie, And with strange aeons even death may die. When strange figments fuse and become part of memory, only Hastur can tell about any upcoming deliveries" (So, nothing yet, we are on it as much as you are)

      Any news on the shipping? I have heard, after the Brexit, England will be taken away from earth by the great Hastur so I'm a little worried.

      @Ian Adams, thanks for your message. We are hoping to begin fulfilment as soon as possible and are currently in the hands of the logistics companies. We know that all files have been submitted and approved to them with no errors (just some configuration to ensure that everything goes into one parcel per backer) ... we are as eager as you for you to get them and we hope we can give you some good news soon!

      Regardless, we're working on something to make up for these delays as we hate delays!

      3 weeks later any updates before the April fool posts start?

      Alright, here's my money, one complete set of "Dreams in the Witch House" please ;-)
      Can't wait for this to launch and the re-launch of "Tales" (supported it at the highest tier and will do so again)

      @Guoccamolé yes, they are going to be in the FAQ page so they won't be lost in the description.

      You might want to put the miniature scale(s) up-front on the campaign page, so prospective backers don’t have go fishing for it.
