The final version is so luxurious!
The final version is so luxurious!

Many of you are getting yours in the mail right now (and sharing pictures with me!! <3) and that means we can finally release Star Crossed to the public. Point all your friends and fam to our pals at Atomic Empire for their very own copy, or DriveThruRPG for the PDF-only version. 

International backers, I know you are still waiting! Yours are on the way, as efficiently as we can get them to you. We've heard some retailers have begun receiving their shipments, which means yours can't be far behind! 

(I live in Canada. I know the KS waiting game all too well.)

Thank you thank you thank you ALL for making this day possible! I am over the moon that our sweet game is out there in the wild.

With this set of name tags and facilitator guide (and a whole buncha tumblin' towers) you can turn your one copy of Star Crossed into an up to 20 player massive gaming event! We ran this at Big Bad Con and it was a big, chaotic, wonderful evening. Imagine up to 10 tables of Star Crossed, all running concurrently in the same shared fictional space, the events of every story impacting the course of all the others. It's awesome. Now you can run it! And if you do - please tell us about it!

After an achingly long delay, the US shipment of Star Crossed has finally made it from Newark to the warehouse in Durham, NC. The folks at Atomic Empire tell us that the games are in good shape and ready to start going out the door to all of you in the US over the next few days.

Shipping Updates! Sweet New Merch!

Hello Star Crossed friends! 

It's 2019 and we're excited to be able to say that Star Crossed will soon be in your hands and in stores everywhere! We had an idea, and you helped us make it a real game! We're pretty excited about it, honestly.

Here are some updates about where things stand and what's coming up next!

Shipping Updates

As most of you know, our original expected release was in December. Thanks to some delays in printing, we had to push back until this month, and for the most part that has been going well. That said, we're now looking at some further delays. 

US Shipments 

Our US warehouse— the always excellent Atomic Empire in Durham, NC— is still waiting on Star Crossed to arrive. The cargo arrived over a week ago, but since then it's just been sitting on board the ship at anchor south of Long Beach. Apparently a combination of the holiday rush, the tariff scare, and the US government shutdown caused a giant backlog at the port and they haven't been able to dock. 

That said, the ship started moving this morning and should be unloading in Newark today. Once that's done, the cargo will be trucked to Durham and we'll get shipping underway. We'd already given Atomic permission to start shipping the less complicated orders, so don't be surprised if you see people posting online about getting their super great enamel pins or other add-ons.

International Shipments

Meanwhile our UK warehouse— Spiral Galaxy Games— already has Star Crossed in stock, but they are waiting for the add-on products to arrive. We sent that shipment to the freight forwarding service in December, but, perhaps due to the same delays, it is only now leaving for the UK. Spiral Galaxy says that we should expect that to take at least 3-4 more weeks, and then they'll be able to ship all international orders.

I feel badly about these delays, and I very much want all of you to already have Star Crossed in your hands. This is our first time working with an overseas fulfillment partner, which we wanted to do to make international shipping less expensive. Unfortunately, it also means it's taking us longer, but I believe it's ultimately going to be worthwhile.

Sweet New Merch from Heart of the Deernicorn!

While we all wait, we'd like to announce an exciting new development in the Star Crossed world- we've partnered with the good people at Heart of the Deernicorn (makers of excellent games such as Fall of Magic and Best Friends Forever) to bring you some limited edition Star Crossed merchandise featuring another gorgeous original illustration by Jess Fink! 

So many stars (but that tower looks like trouble)

This will be a six-color, water-based ink silkscreen made by hand in the Deernicorn Olympia shop. When the sale begins, you'll be able to get this design on shirts, hoodies, posters and... other items. We'll post more soon about how you can get your hands on them!

Thanks as always for your enthusiasm and support! If you have any questions, please feel free to let us know.

- Steve

Stay merry and bright, everyone; the shipments are expected to arrive to our warehouses, and begin shipping to you, by mid January. Thanks for sticking with us this whole year; we'll see you in 2019.

It's Time for Pictures of Boxes

We're busy as bees here at BPG HQ. Thankfully we're buzzing with some very good news: 

Not the prettiest picture, but somehow I still want to print it and put it on the fridge.

It's your games! They're at the freight forwarder, waiting to ship to America on a vessel we have just been informed is named EVER LAWFUL. There's something reassuring about that. Even though I lean more chaotic good. 

Let's Look at Something Prettier Now

Jess Fink's art is always a treat.

Jason conducted a wonderful interview with me for Game Trade Magazine, and it's out now! It's very sweet and I get to nerd out about all my favourite things about Star Crossed. See if you can grab a copy at your friendly local game store, or read the interview online! 

Thanks, as always, for your patience and enthusiasm, backers. We <3 you.

More Delights

There is a wonderful new Star Crossed actual play out; a very special episode of Welcome to Warda! Aly and Drew tell the story of a halfgene Ifriti professor and a Fairy head housekeeper as they find themselves drawn to one another as the Faction Era continues to grow around them, drastically changing the city of Ammingrad.

And finally, here is some fan art of my One Shot actual play of SC, with myself as the xenopsychologist and James D'Amato as the awkward alien, from our friend @devonskeret! 

Thank you @devonserket!
