      I tried to download Godless and it was a corrupted file. Then I couldn't make anything work.
      Could you please send it again, Robert?

      One of the problems I'm having is that some downloads from Drive Thru RPG have blocked out text. Worst is "Terrible Beauty"...
      But not complaining...the game has been great thus far. My group has just had their first few sessions and have torn Moore House inside out. Now first level, they have fallen into the clutches of Inquisitor Randolfus, who is about to use them to try and root out The Brotherhood of Shadows. One thing to be careful of; giving goblins pirate costumes and guns.

      I seemed to have missed "The Demon’s Wet Nurse" from your list. Could you please send the link? Thanks.

      I'm so sorry to bother you guys, but I seem to have missed (or misplaced) 2 items-- Victims of the Demon Lord: Starter Guide and A Glorious Death. I'm not certain where to find the codes to checkout with them? Please help!

      Yay! Thank you! I appreciate it. We've exhausted the core book role playing so it'll be good to add some of the new content. Very nice and awesome of you Robert for the quick response. I imagine it can get crazy with the high volume of backers. Hopefully you'll soon do another Kickstarter. I'll be immediately on board.

      Btw- I'll never forget your awesome work on 4th edition D&D. Shadows of the Demon Lord would not be the great game it is without your core contributions you made to D&D!

      @Travis I'm sorry the PDFs haven't gotten to you or that none of your emails reached me. I will resend all the PDFs to the email address you provided and then I will personally send the download links to you from my personal address to ensure they reach you. If you don't have them within the hour, please contact me directly through a Kickstarter message so I can verify your email address.

      Hi, I haven't received my links for the free PDFs that I pledged for through the Kickstarter. I've tried sending some emails though the Schwalb entertainment website several times but I haven't received a response. Would you be able to resend them to me? Also, is the 'contact us' link working on the website?

      Would it be possible to resend the links for me, as well, please? It looks like I only received (or my spam filter ate) half of the links. Everything I have received looks great! Nice job, and thanks!

      Yes. Disciple of the Demon Lord was released to backers of their level.

      Rob, I think I've missed my PDF Files for the $102 backer. I received the physical copy of Shadow of the Demon Lord, but must have missed the PDFs.

      @Jimmy: Internet probably gobbled up the link. Will resend.

      Missing Terrible Beauty. As a 90$ I think we get this one right?

      @Scott: OK. Fetching your link to resend it to you. Emails from DTRPG are bit thick-headed, stumbling into spam filters or wandering off to be eaten by internet monsters. The next time you don't get something, I encourage you to send a Kickstarter message to me, which sends me a notification so I can take care of this right away. Thanks and watch your inbox.

      No I have not. Received the other ones though.

      Ive been getting the emails from DriveThruRPG but seem to be missing Tales of the Demon Lord. Did that come through there or have I missed something? I'd email rob via kickstarter but i cant seem to find how...

      There have been *many* pdfs released. Send an email to Rob via Kickstarter so he can check your pledge and send you the links. Also, check your spam folder to see if there are any emails from DriveThruRPG.

      Let me echo the compliments. This has been an amazing Kickstarter in every aspect and I look forward to the SotDL Expansion Kickstarter. \m/

      @Matt - After 4e, they needed 5e. :-)

      Rob you are an RPG god. Never ever seen a kickstarter run this well and deliver such high quality work. You have my money for any future projects! happy new year!

      Rob, I have been going through the materials and I have to say "great work." I have reviewed a lot of systems, and I think SotDL does exactly what it set out to do - emphasize roleplaying. I had just about given up on RPGs as being needlessly complex and rule oriented (D&D needs a 5th Edition, really?) but SotDL gives some new hope. Now I just need to find a local group...

    40. Michael V. Drejer on

      I just received the book and screen today. You said that you doubt you would do shipping again for future campaigns, but I am so happy you did with this one. The book is awesome and the screen looks great.

      @Robert: The book is beautiful - well done sir!

      I was looking into running a game over the holiday and realized that I received all PDF rewards except for Tales of the Demon Lord and the Disciple of the Demon Lord expert path.

      Is there any chance that you could resend that my way? Many thanks!

      @myself: Yes, those links have gone out; they apparently went to my old address, and I was able to salvage them. For those who might find themselves in the same boat, I think that Rob can change a Backerkit-linked address from his end (he was able to do so for my Demon Lord's Companion). Thanks again, Rob, for your help with that; I'm enjoying the game, and want to make sure that I get all the goodies!

      Have PDF links for "Measure of a Man" and "Huntsman's Isle" been handed out yet? I've had an e-mail snafu, and Backerkit seems to be reluctant about letting me change my email address.

      My copy just arrived! Your packaging is just first-rate; those corner protectors you used were fabulous (I can't tell you how often hardbacks often get damaged corners).

    48. Luke Walker on

      @Luke: Yes.

      @AWS: Yes. The Deluxe Screens were all sold out within hours after being made available during the KS.

    49. AWS on

      Is it too late to grab a Deluxe Screen?

      Had a character creation session for SotDL today. All my players lit up with huge smiles at the content. They're all excited to play!!
