International Backers Update 12/01/2014
Unfortunately I am slowly coming to realize that once again I have been lied to by my international re-distributor, Angus Abranson of Chronicle City. I was given assurances that all of the missing rewards were mailed out, and I sent out the few items he claimed not to have. The items I mailed out seem to have arrived, but the items he claimed to mailed I now believe were never sent out. I cannot express how deeply this entire business sickens me.
I promise that everyone due material will get their rewards, I just ask for your patience. If I am forced to resend everything out, to mail all the missing items directly it will be ruinous. I have already shipped these items to him and paid for the postage, promptly sending him a small fortune I might add. Golden Goblin Press cannot afford to pay for all this shipping a second time. We are a very small, very new company. A hit this severe could sink us, and as such it seems unlikely we'll be launching another Kickstarter in 2015.
If it is any consolation I have recently learned that we are not alone. Angus Abranson has done this same thing to the backers of the Cathulhu Deluxe game, taking the publisher's money and stock while not shipping out the items he was paid to. He is actively being sought for comment and resolution by at least three publishers that I know of.
I have been emailing him and messaging him on Facebook constantly. If you are missing your rewards I invite you to join me in attempting to contact him as well. He should be reachable at: firstname.lastname@example.org. If anyone out there, especially those backers living in the UK, has a way to get in touch with him I would be very grateful for your help.
I am deeply sorry for all of us affected by this situation. Please know I am working very hard to try to resolve this. Golden Goblin Press is a small company, a handful of people working from their homes, on their laptops, running Kickstarters to raise capital to produce the best books they can. We never wanted our fans treated poorly in any way. We are just as much victims of this situation as you are.
Stand by for further developments as they take shape,
Oscar Rios - President of Golden Goblin Press.
