Update #46

Got Carded

Golly, I wonder what I'm going to talk about in this update, given that you almost certainly looked at the picture below this before reading this sentence OH LOOK:

Yes, that's the long-awaited Sticky Shticks card expansion, in glorious Actual Existence. They arrived in Houston late on Friday, and Ookoodook got to work shipping them out right away. (My copies—for inclusion with signed packages—are still forthcoming.) I was hoping to get some numbers on how many packages the staff had mailed already before half of them got on a plane and/or truck to GenCon, but it was not to be. So all I can say about how many have shipped at this point is, "Some." With more to go out the door through this week and the next, and possibly the one after that. 

Not to be confused with the non-Sticky Shtick orders, which are done. Well, like 99% done. Done enough that they're not a pressing concern anymore, but not so done that anyone who didn't get their non-Sticky Shtick order should be too worried. (Which is to say, "Please don't email me about it yet.") There are still about a hundred stragglers across all those reward tiers that need to be handled individually, and the warehouse is going to concentrate on getting the bulk of the Sticky Shtick orders out before even addressing them.

This is going to be a relatively quick update, because I don't have much to say. Here's the Workometer:

I'm not going to have a "Five Things" section this time, because it's getting to the point where everything I'm doing is reflected on the Workometer already, and I didn't think it was a good use of time to sit here and wrack my brain for five ways to dodge the subject. This past week, I spent waaaaay too much time drawing a single (awesome) wallpaper, I did a couple of pages on the Belkar story, and I got one regular comic update done. That's pretty much it, and most of that is shown up there. So, it may return in a future update, or it may not. I haven't decided. It depends on how much weird extracurricular stuff I end up needing to do in a given period of time.

Oh, and I entwittified about this, but just so everyone is clear: I won't personally be at GenCon this year. There will be an Ookoodook/APE Games booth —#1413, located, I'm told, "right behind Wizards of the Coast." As I said last time, that booth will be selling OOTS books and the board game (but not Sticky Shticks), as well as other APE products, but I won't be sitting there signing anything. And sInce some people have asked: No, you won't be able to pick up your Kickstarter reward from the booth. They simply won't have the ability to look up and verify your order at the convention, and the staff that's staying in Houston will still be shipping those orders throughout the duration.

I think that covers everything that's going on. I'll check back in once I get some numbers from the warehouse about what Sticky Shticks have shipped.

--Rich Burlew

P.S. If you can't wait another moment for a taste of Stickiness, you can download the rulesheet from APE Games now. 

P.P.S. Going forward, I should avoid the phrase "taste of Stickiness" whenever possible.

      I still haven't gotten any sort of notification on my package, which is The Whole Story and a Game, and I don't think I'm a straggler... :(

      I´m a little bit lost about something: when your order is shipped, do you get any message about it? I remeber seeing something about tracking your reward after it´s sent. Does this works with international shipping too?

      Creator Tomas Jindra on August 29, 2012

      Don´t worry there is more of us without rewards yet. Plus Rich said he will ask if everybody has got his order in the end. So lets give them a little more time. (I´m too impatient :D)

      @Ahdok: Yes, your order requires special handling and is included with the stragglers.

      Creator Ahdok on August 28, 2012

      I guess my order is one of the 100 stragglers? I've not received any notifications or messages about it. (It doesn't have Sticky Schticks in it.)

      Oh well...

      @Matt I've already solved it. So I can give you the first word of the crytogram. But some here might consider it spoilery. :P
      *thinks*
      Tell you what. Go to this link (http://decode.org/) and type in "OR". The answer it gives will be the first word of the cryptogram.
      Hope this helps. :)

      Got mine last week. Rich, I love the coloring books, and so do Andy (7) and Emily (5). They're fabulous. They maintain the high standard of humor I've come to expect from OotS while simultaneously offering plenty of age-appropriate activities and creative outlets! Now that my kids have been introduced, they're asking me to tell OotS stories every night... I've summarized Origin of PCs and Dungeon Crawlin' Fools for them, from memory and with some editing.

      To sum up: thank you, Rich!

      My 94$ pledge came today (My birthday, hahahahaha!). The customs fees (Spain) were around 17€ plus another 14€ for getting it home instead of travelling to Madrid to get it. The USPS tracking code worked perfectly.

      I would write more about how happy I am and what a great work everyone did (seriously, thank you!), but I have much to read now! Possibly with cake.

      I have no idea why there would be a hiccup with KS's email notification, but if you guys check my Twitter feed, I always announce when I make a new update there, too. Of course, if you don't already check the Twitter, that information is useless, as you might as well check THIS page rather than THAT one. But still.

      Awesome news! Finally got confirmation (tracking #) that my custom-requested package is on its way.

      You know what would be nice on the work-o-meter, is if there was some indication of what's changed since last update. Maybe brighter colors, or some sort of glowing aura, depending on how much effort you want to put into it. Just a thought.
