      It was a long time coming but my package finally arrived here in Australia. Looks good.

      The Shadows have grown Cold in Missouri, USA!

      Everything looks great! Can't wait to dig into it all!

      I want to thank all of the players behind the scenes that helped this project see the light of day after such dark tragedy.

      It's appreciated!

      Received pledge way down in New Zealand!
      Will be bundling up in bed against the local cold shadows (almost winter solstice down here) and having a good read!

      @Chris - There are currently no plans for a quick reference sheet, but we'll talk about it! And on page 79, in the "Framing the Cold War" chapter, there's a whole section on media!

      @Keaton - I'll check on your cards. They should have come with your books! (Unless you mean the PDFs.)

    16. Chris Czerniak on

      Just got my book and started reading it last night. I like what I read. I have two questions:

      1. I liked the trust token/betrayal token mechanic but it seemed like there were a lot of rules for these. Any plans to create a quick reference rules sheet?

      2. I didn't get to the end but is there a media reference for the type of spy stories Cold Shadows is trying to tell. While reading I was thinking The Americans and Jack Ryan movies/tv/books.

      Bloody frak. Well then, I guess all I need to know is when the cards are showing up now... thank you for replying quickly!

      Hey Keaton!

      I assume the earlier ones in February were the POD at-cost ones? These are the actual rewards from your pledge. The at-cost PODs were a place holder due to the long shipping wait. We only started shipping this month.

      Hey guys, I've got two copies of my pledge now. I received my cold shadows and cities in shadow book sometime in february, and now, today i just opened up another package of these same books. Was there some late revision that was needed?

      @Ian - Not every package is out yet. We're anticipating another week of fulfillment. We'll post an update when we're done and if you haven't heard by then, we'll provide a way for you to contact us so we can sort it out.

      Just a question/observation, dont really know what to call it, but I live in Australia and I got my two printed books like months ago. Was this correct, as I see US is/was waiting and usually we are well behind.

      Nevermind! Just read back through some updates, and noticed that the adventures will be included after the rest has been delivered. Feel free to ignore me!

      Eric Schubert on

      I'm just curious, because I didn't see any comments on this, yet... I noticed the total pledge sits over $41k. (Great job, btw!) The stretch goal for $40k, a series of adventures, still shows as "locked" on the campaign page. Will this goal be included for backers? Or is it still "locked" for a reason?

      Thanks! :)

      @Stephan - I'm meeting with my legal counsel and we're going over our options. I don't want to get into the details too much (for a lot of reasons), but there are options we're talking over.

      Alan, without meaning to be difficult at what is undoubtedly a frustrating and demoralising time for you...what options do we have? What options do you have?
