FWIW my copy of the Book arrived here in Sydney, Oz (not Nova Scotia!), around 11 am today ... in pristine condition due to the most secure and rugged packaging that I've seen in many years.
The book looks great, after a quick flick through ...
Congratulations to all involved.
French customer here,
my two parcel are arrived, one last monday, the second today.
The took a little bit of battering, but considering the trip they made, they are in good condition.
Yessss, my precioussssss....
Based on the handful of invoices I've issued, the countries that have require invoices for educational material over $7 Euro are Finland, Denmark and Germany.
If your book is stuck in customs, I can issue you an invoice. Email me - don't message me here please - at firstname.lastname@example.org.
it did arrive but...dont underestimate the power of Hauptzollamt Berlin / German Customs :-/ have to pick it up there.
Australian customer here. Both of my books arrived in fantastic condition, despite the packages having taken a bit of the battering. Whatever you did with the packaging was nothing short of marvellous, and one more example of the fantastic attention to detail you've shown throughout the kickstarter - thank you! :-)
Got my book today! Its in perfect condition despite Canada Post apparently using the package as a football at some point ;)
Lovely looking book arrived in Cambridge, UK. Thank you.
Arrived in London, UK today. Gorgeous, gorgeous book. Very happy to have backed this, well done! Looking forward to seeing what comes next... and running Zweihänder of course :D
My book arrived in the UK this morning, lovely
Beautiful book well worth the wait
So far, so good! Books are popping up all over: Canada, Mexico, Finland, Poland, Australia, Germany and all across the UK. Be sure to email me if you didn't get a tracking ID yet. Don't message me here on Kickstarter, as I am more responsive by email during work hours.
Only a few reports of damaged books (one was water-logged, one was completely crushed). If you have experienced significant damage to your book during transit, you can make a claim with the USPS. This may vary by country, but this is as much info as I can ascertain:
You must immediately present the article, mailing container, wrapping, packaging, and any other contents received in damaged condition and/or with missing contents to a Post Office™ for inspection. The Post Office will verify the damage and give you a PS Form 3831, Receipt for Article(s) Damaged in Mails, for your files.
My copy just arrived, West Yorkshire UK.
Box was a bit dented and crushed, there has been some minor crushing to the bottom corners of the book and a small scuff near the bottom of the spine that has lifted the matte laminate unfortunately.
Only minor cosmetics really, still a beautiful book.
A little worried about my friends copy though, he had it shipped to my address, his box looks in a worse state than mine was, will find out when he opens it this weekend.
My book arrived here today in England in good condition. All's well :).
Glad to know people are receiving their copies already. I'm still waiting for any sort of notification here.
Most important in all this I got my massive sword here in the UK. I call that a win :). Books will be here soon.
Cool I'll try that! Thanks
I do this with all my books with ribbons. I used a tongue depressor and slather a generous amount of fast-drying superglue over the stick, open up the book halfway, stand it on its spine and rub it over the ribbon where it butts against the spine backing. Be sure to leave the book open when you do this so that you don't glue the spine down.
Argh the headband detached from the pages at the top. Any recommendations on how to re-glue it back?
Got mine here in Ottawa, Canada. Perfect condition: such a beautiful book. Thanks! Looking forward to seeing what else you folks come up with!
Well packed. Received in Canada in perfect shape. Very happy from start to finish. Looking forward to future stuff.
Tracking number received, though I'm not entirely sure of how USPS works in terminology, as my parcel left Heathrow yesterday morning towards my location, but I'm only 70miles from Heathrow so unless they are walking it down the country it should be at the depo by now. I'm sure its just down to it being the weekend or that its in customs at Heathrow and its not left at all.
Must say Daniel I was impressed by how fast it got here that's pretty damn quick! Thanks!
I got mine tracking number and Zweihander is going really fast, some spell probably. Starting next week I will probably have it in my home.

How can we redownload the Crowdox files? Links dont work currently :)
What I can tell you is that the books were put back on pallets and moved across Chicago to a new distribution center, where they will tag the books for mailing. I'll have firmer details Tuesday or Wednesday. The extended Labor Day weekend throws off a lot of businesses here in the US because it's a bank holiday Monday.
Has there been a mention as to how long the delay might be? For adjusting the packaging for international backers, I mean.
Fair enough. Let's hope it's quicker than a month!
Unfortunately it's too late to change shipping addresses.
Too late to change address for international shipping? I have a surprise interstate move coming up.
@ Niels Visser
International shipping has been delayed because the packaging failed it's Toughness check. See the latest update: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/grimandperilous/zweihander-grim-and-perilous-rpg/posts/1975717
Is there any update on the international shipping? I (I'm located in Europe) have not received any shipping email yet.
oh but my name isn't in the back :(
just got my book today, seems really nice!
The CrowdOx links seem to be dead, is there another place to re-download the digital files? Had mine on my phone when the disk cleaner got overzealous and nuked them.
@Jason N Dennis
Canadian orders are going out at the same time as all other international ones; on Tuesday, Aug. 29th.
This is something that I've started doing consistently with any hardback book I get, particularly ones like this, which require zwei hands to use. I thought it might be helpful to share with others.
Anyone in Canada get their books yet? Still waiting patiently...
I was climbing Mt Rainier when the package arrived, and I finally was able to open it today! Only one ding that I can live with on the bottom edge of the back cover. This is the Pièce de résistance of my collection for sure! Thank you for going that extra bit at the end to make this tome what it is. I cannot wait for your other future plans!
Wow! Zweihänder is so massive it bends space and time! Next Tuesday be damned, my order of three awesome books arrived in Melbourne, Australia just now.
A little dinged around the orders and top edge as others have said, but for 16lbs of books shipped at record speed across the globe, I'm ecstatic!
Really looking forward to recreating that early WFRP feeling.
@Fnord Prefect we appreciate it! We're going to give you and other backers a special discount once we are ready for the GM screen and next supplement as a special thank you.
I received mine! A tad beat up. Hopefully the bubble wrap will prevent others from having the same problem. While it is beat up enough that I'd ordinarily look to get it exchanged I'd rather spare you guys the expense and put that cash and effort toward the next supplements! It's a beast of a book and I'm glad that I have my copy! Excellent work!
Received yesterday in Chicago. One set of corners on the open side had mild denting, but not bad enough to merit replacement, or even the hassle and expense to ship back. Just a little disappointing start. Note that this was both copies. The shipping box was pretty cheap and beat up.
@daniel done and thank you
@Gian that's very unusual. I just checked our remaining stock, and no other books seem to have this issue. Would you mind sending me images of where they seem to be missing at my email address: email@example.com
My book appears to be missing chapter 8,it goes from page 224 to page 259.
Mine arrived last night. Damn, this thing is a beast! Very well done - super pleased with the book.
@WhyWorry Maybe! We're focusing on our next supplement now (all the cool stuff we couldn't fit into the core book), but stay tuned.
Got my book as well. I've been having a blast going through the classes and getting ready for my own game! Are there other modules for the zweihander system besides the bitter harvest?
Just got my book today. I think I can bludgeon someone to death with its size and weight. :) The book is excellent and I love the artwork. I can't help but show it off to everyone I know.
Mine arrived today and it is glorious! But as another has already posted, the corners are all smashed up. The box was just not up to protecting this massive beast of a book!
EDIT: sorry, missed the part that non-US orders will ship starting on Friday, the 25th.
