Have a question?
All books were shipped by Monday 8/13 but media mail can take a while (up to 6 weeks, although 1-2 weeks is common). It won't show up in your Herogames.com account because the Kickstarter is run separately from the website.
For people who didn't back the Kickstarter but would like to buy a copy now, both Villains 3 and APG2 should be available in the online store after Gen Con, and available to distributors for retail stores by the end of August while supplies last.
is there any way to find out if our book has been sent? i was looking at my Hero Games.com purchases and this one is not there? the kickstarter project is separate i'm assuming? thanks in advance for any responses
Do we have an update on the books shipping? It's about the end of July, now....
I didn't get the email for APG2. I paid after the end of the kickstarter via PayPal for both print copy and PDF. :(
If you've had problems downloading APG2 PDF please try again, and if you're still having any problems send us a message here. (Using message, not comment please.)
Many, many thanks to our 182 backers who made it possible for us to complete the trilogy of Villainy!
By early next week we'll send out the surveys asking what address to ship to, what name you'd like to us to thank in the credits of Villians 3, and other information we need for fulfillment. It would be very helpful if everyone answers their survey quickly so we can update the credits in the book and get it sent to the printer as soon as the Kickstarter money arrives.
We've heard from several backers who didn't get into the 2 hour window between when we crossed $16,000 to reprint APG2 and the end of the Kickstarter. We want everyone who wants a copy of APG2 to get one, so we're looking into the best way of doing that, and will post an update as soon as we've worked out details. Stay tuned!
It hit the 16k mark not long before midnight (I and most people were asleep) and didn't get in that narrow (less than 2 hour) window to add on the APG2! :( Other backers are going to be in this same situation. Can we get a copy reserved for us?
Not a bad deal for my pledge. CV3 book & PDF and a hardcopy of APG2.
Thank you Daniel! I think so too. Jason Walters, General Manager
Over and above the success of this Kickstarter (congrats Hero Games!), this was an educational exercise in what type and level of rewards HERO fans are interested in. I'm sure that will help future Kickstarters.
OH HELL YES! - sadly - I have to wait till it is in the Online Store - hope i do not miss it again :(
We Just added $4 - Come on Guys - We are SO CLOSE :)
$220 till the Stretch goal :) - Let's Do this :)
Hey, Powers that Be, Any Chance of giving the "MYTHIC HERO" Book another go? - Maybe it was just a bad month for the Fans :)
We are just $257 short. We have 177 backers. If all of us up our pledge by $2, we will pass that goal!
Just about $500 left now. Can we do it?
Wow... putting on a real push for the Stretch Goal.
Less than $1k for the stretch goal.
Sorry, just read my last post it if it sounds like I was trying to take credit for the idea, I wasn't; I heartily approve of the idea though! Great Idea!
...or Advanced Players Guide 2! That'd be good to get back in print too, in the very same Kickstarter!
Hah! 3 days to spare! Now let's get Champions back in print!
@Chad... good for you brother!
Down to a mere $700 or so... just a little more pushing!
Less than $1k to go. So close!
We're very, very close. I'm going to go "shake the bushes" and see what I can do.
We're sooo close! I've upped my pledge twice now...
Man, less than a grand now... I'll see if my friend Matt has pledged yet. Wow, the newly added $181 all three books w/ extras tier is almost sold out. Get 'em while they're hot.
1200$ ... COME ON!! :) LET'S DO THIS !!
Tell your friends, tell your neighbors, tell total strangers. Need more backers!
$1500 Left - LET"S DO THIS!!!
A message of Support from "The Grrl Gamers of Greensboro" (G3)
Come on guys, we can do this!
Nice... less than $2K to go!
@James - that's a very interesting idea. Let me check.
The gap is narrowing! I've got Vol. 2 of this series and I can tell you that it is one of the highest quality Hero books I've seen. I really want this project to go.
$2600 to go :) Let all your Gamer Friends know :)
Cool, I see all the 6e character packs have been added to the $600 and $800 levels.
How about a tier priced around $400 that has "All three Villains books (Masterminds, Teams, and Solo) with the PDFs and Character Packs plus plus all Hero System 6e PDFs and Character Packs to date."? This would be for those who don't care enough about signed/numbered copies of books to want to pay a premium for them.
Thanks for the video Steve!
Less than $3k to go now.
Very excited to see that we're closing on $11K.
@James... I think at this point anything to make those tiers more attractive would be a positive step.
Any chance of adding "and all 6e Character Packs to date" to the $600 and $800 levels?
And/Or adding a tier between the 180 and 600 tiers that has everything in the $180 tier plus all 6e PDFs and Character Packs to date?
Hey, I don't even use the CU and I pledge every hero or champions product. I dropped 250. I like my copies signed.
We Lost Mythic Hero - Let us not loss this book - Tell anyone you know that plays Hero to help out!
Support the Game :)
Winddancer Soto and "The Grrl Gamers of Greensboro" (G3) just added there support :)
I am telling everyone I can about it - I got the three volume set
Nice, after the changes... we are creeping up on 10K.
