Update #47

The Steady March of Progress

Sometimes, I don't have much to report except more of the same. Today's one of those days. It's been long enough since the last update that people are getting antsy, but nothing new is really finished. I do have a new shipping chart from Ookoodook, though. Let's take a look:

As you can see, two-thirds of the Sticky Shticks packages have been mailed out already (as well as all of the non-Sticky Shticks that don't require special handling). You may notice that many reward levels have partial fulfillment, in contrast to the previous chart. That's because the warehouse staff had a scare where they though they had run out of patches, and started mailing only those packages that didn't add one. A few days later, they found two big boxes of patches in the back of the warehouse after all. So now everything is back in the queue to ship, but it does make the chart seem pretty random.

Also, we've started trying to contact everyone in the Straggler category, especially those who haven't yet given us their shipping address. If you haven't filled out any surveys for this Kickstarter drive ever (not even back when it ended in February), then you should check the junk mail folder of the email address you provided for us—there's probably a message from us there. Furthermore, if you pledged at the $10, $14, or $15 levels and have not given us your address yet, please email us at kickstarter(at)giantitp(dot)com, except replacing the (at) with @ and the (dot) with a dot. Give us your account name, the level that you backed at, and your shipping address. There are still a lot of these pledges that haven't shipped yet and we'd like to clear them out as soon as possible. EDIT: Please do not use this email address for general inquiries about your order!! Continue to contact me directly through the "Contact Me" link next to Elan on the side.

With that, let's look at the Workometer:

Next time I update, I expect to be giving you the download link to the Belkar story—I still have a couple of pages left to draw, then I need to lay it out for the PDF. Then I need to get my copies of Sticky Shticks shipped to me from the Ookoodook warehouse so I can start mailing out the last of the non-Patience non-artwork signed packages.

Thanks to everyone for your patience. And congratulations to Reaper Miniatures on displacing me as the most funded D&D-related project. Fun fact: plastic minis like the Bones line are light enough to ride on the back of a paper horse from the Monster for Every Season collection. Just saying.

--Rich

      Yup. As far as I know we haven't had any clue yet on Mystery Prize 9, and I think Rich said we wouldn't get any clue until it was actually here. So we get a surprise to look forward to some time in the distant future :)

      Creator INCyr on September 19, 2012

      @theangelJean Thanks for the update on 8.5. That still doesn't answer the question of what 9 is/was.

    3. Missing_small

      Creator theangelJean on September 19, 2012

      INCyr: I asked about that in the Comments page in July, and Rich replied (on July 13) that

      "Mystery Prize 8.5 may not be happening after all. Or, more likely, it will be happening as a product, but not this year and not as a free reward, so it's not really a KS Mystery Prize anymore. But who knows."

      If you click on his name and open up his full profile, then click on his number of comments (310! at the moment) and scroll down a long way until you get to July 13, you'll see it. Personally, I'm not too disappointed because we're getting a bunch of free stuff already, and this wasn't part of the rewards announced during the drive anyway so he didn't promise anything ... and if he does manage to make something happen, even if it's not free, it'll still be even more cool stuff :)

      Got my Whole Story + Game package yesterday! It had been so long, I had forgotten all the OTHER goodies that came along with it, so I was quite delighted when I started pulling out notepads, stickers... and the COLORING BOOKS! I don't think I've been so excited about coloring books in 25 years. Can't wait to read through the books that aren't online (and read through the ones that are, to see the special contents.)

      In other questions, did we ever find out what Mystery Prize #9 was? Last I could find was reference to it back in May, when Rich stated he was testing out Mystery Prize #8.5. (And, for reference, what was 8.5? I seemed to have missed that announcement as well...)

      Just got my whole story and a game package. Completely worth the wait. First time buying any of the OotS products, but most certainly won't be my last.

      Just wanted to say thanks to the team at Ookoodook who spent countless ( not to whoever is in charge of the labor budget) hours working on getting these packages out. And thanks again to Rich, for entertaining us for nearly a decade.

      Got my Whole Story and a Game package. The shipping was so fast it beat the email. This embarrassed my tracking email so much that it decided to hide in my spam folder to try and confuse me. Silly email, I am wise to your ways.

      Now that I have this sweet magnet, I'm disappointed in myself for not jumping at the chance to get any of the other magnets. It's very high quality.

      I just got my email for WHOLE STORY AND A GAME telling me they are shipping today - now I anxiously await the delivery. Unfortunately - in two weeks I'll be away so I can't enjoy it for long.

      Received my swag pack #2 in the mail yesterday! Colouring books, patches, magnets and HP pads look awesome. However, I got an extra HP pad (6 total instead of 5) and I think the stickers got left out of my envelope. Need to double check to see if the stickers are hiding in one of the colouring books or perhaps stuck in the envelope.

      @Jean-François Gagné If the package has been shipped, then the ship notice your received should contains a USPS tracking number. If it hasn't shipped yet, then if my arithmetic is correct only1657 packages were left to be shipped on August 29th. From various things Rich has posted. I think we can expect that most will be sent out by the end of this week. If you are worried that your package may not get to you before your move and you haven't received a shipping mail, you could contact Rich via the contact me message and ask for it to be held for three weeks and then sent to your new address.

      @theangelJean:
      Thanks, Jean, it really helped!
      I still didn't get any shipping email for my unsigned package, so I was getting a little worried about it. But if some people receive the package before the email, I guess it's only a matter of time. (But I guess the email will come first than the package; it's a long way to Brazil.)

      Best,

      Creator theangelJean on September 9, 2012

      @Marco: If you check the email you used for the kickstarter account, and you are getting an unsigned package which is being sent by Ookoodook, you may get a shipping email. It looks very plain, the subject is "Your order:" and then the order number, so it looks like some of the phishing emails I get in my spam box. (If you get an email like that where the sender is something like UPS or something you don't recognise, don't click any links in the email, there are a lot of fake shipping emails out there that send you links to viruses and stuff. The only reason I knew this wasn't a nasty link was because of the sender, and also I was expecting it.) In the email there is shipping information and a link to a USPS tracking service. Mine is an international package (coming to Australia) and so far it shows the package as having been sorted in Texas (where Ookoodook lives i'm guessing) and Chicago (which I am guessing is an international sorting centre for USPS.

      However some people are reporting that their shipping email got to them after the package arrived. So you may not get one before you get your package.

      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?

      @Euo That and the way that H&J is properly underway are most certainly more than "nothing much to report". 90% of the backers have received all the printed material they expect. Soon we'll be down to just the one percent who commissioned specials waiting for physical stuff. The computerised goodies and especially the stories will now be the focus of most people and significant progress is certainly news to the 10K mass.

      If anyone just wants me to double-check your order or see if it's shipped yet or see if it's lost...please don't right now. I'm already swarmed with emails from people asking that who are mailing it to my assistant's email that I (shortsightedly) included in this update, assuming it's mine and further assuming that I have up-to-the-minute data on each order.

      Creator theangelJean on August 30, 2012

      Meaghan, if you've got your package and something has been missing from it, the best thing to do is contact Rich through the Kickstarter system. It's a link in the section for Rich's Bio at the top right of this page, that says Contact Me and is underlined. They seem to have made this link less prominent recently so it's harder to find :(
      On the other hand if you're just expecting a package and haven't heard anything about it, well we've all got to be patient (including me, I'm waiting on an $80 package...)
      I'm guessing you're probably in the former category rather than the latter but there are so many people waiting on packages, who seem to want someone to talk to them about the fact they haven't got it yet ...
