      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.

    2. Creator Jason Branigan on August 15, 2012

      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

    3. Creator M. J. C. Faulkner on July 28, 2012

      Do we have an update on the books shipping? It's about the end of July, now....

    4. Creator Keith Andreano on June 15, 2012

      I didn't get the email for APG2. I paid after the end of the kickstarter via PayPal for both print copy and PDF. :(

    5. Creator Hero Games on June 13, 2012

      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.)

    6. Creator Hero Games on May 25, 2012

      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.

    7. Creator Hero Games on May 25, 2012

      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!

    8. Creator Keith Andreano on May 25, 2012

      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?

    9. Creator Steven Thesken on May 24, 2012

      Not a bad deal for my pledge. CV3 book & PDF and a hardcopy of APG2.

    10. Creator Hero Games on May 24, 2012

      Thank you Daniel! I think so too. Jason Walters, General Manager

    11. Creator Daniel Dickson on May 24, 2012

      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.

    12. Creator Winddancer Soto on May 24, 2012

      OH HELL YES! - sadly - I have to wait till it is in the Online Store - hope i do not miss it again :(

    13. Creator M. J. C. Faulkner on May 24, 2012

      16k! W00t!

    14. Creator Winddancer Soto on May 24, 2012

      We Just added $4 - Come on Guys - We are SO CLOSE :)

    15. Creator Winddancer Soto on May 24, 2012

      $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 :)

    16. Creator Brian K. Eason on May 24, 2012

      We are just $257 short. We have 177 backers. If all of us up our pledge by $2, we will pass that goal!

    17. Creator Steven Thesken on May 24, 2012

      Just about $500 left now. Can we do it?

    18. Creator Charles Picard on May 24, 2012

      Wow... putting on a real push for the Stretch Goal.

    19. Creator Steven Thesken on May 23, 2012

      Less than $1k for the stretch goal.

    20. Creator Eric on May 21, 2012

      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!

    21. Creator Eric on May 21, 2012

      ...or Advanced Players Guide 2! That'd be good to get back in print too, in the very same Kickstarter!

    22. Creator Eric on May 21, 2012

      Hah! 3 days to spare! Now let's get Champions back in print!

    23. Creator M. J. C. Faulkner on May 21, 2012

      Woot! 14k!

    24. Creator Charles Picard on May 21, 2012

      @Chad... good for you brother!

    25. Creator Charles Picard on May 21, 2012

      Down to a mere $700 or so... just a little more pushing!

    26. Creator Steven Thesken on May 21, 2012

      Less than $1k to go. So close!

    27. Creator Hero Games on May 21, 2012

      We're very, very close. I'm going to go "shake the bushes" and see what I can do.

    28. Creator Chad Riley on May 21, 2012

      We're sooo close! I've upped my pledge twice now...

    29. Creator Charles Picard on May 21, 2012

      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.

    30. Creator Winddancer Soto on May 21, 2012

      1200$ ... COME ON!! :) LET'S DO THIS !!

    31. Creator M. J. C. Faulkner on May 20, 2012

      Tell your friends, tell your neighbors, tell total strangers. Need more backers!

    32. Creator Winddancer Soto on May 19, 2012

      A message of Support from "The Grrl Gamers of Greensboro" (G3)

    33. Creator Oliver Edwards on May 19, 2012

      Come on guys, we can do this!

    34. Creator Charles Picard on May 18, 2012

      Nice... less than $2K to go!

    35. Creator Hero Games on May 18, 2012

      @James - that's a very interesting idea. Let me check.

    36. Creator Charles Picard on May 17, 2012

      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.

    37. Creator Winddancer Soto on May 17, 2012

      $2600 to go :) Let all your Gamer Friends know :)

    38. Creator James Groesbeck on May 17, 2012

      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.

    39. Creator Charles Picard on May 17, 2012

      Thanks for the video Steve!

    40. Creator Steven Thesken on May 16, 2012

      Less than $3k to go now.

    41. Creator Charles Picard on May 16, 2012

      Very excited to see that we're closing on $11K.

    42. Creator Charles Picard on May 16, 2012

      @James... I think at this point anything to make those tiers more attractive would be a positive step.

    43. Creator James Groesbeck on May 15, 2012

      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?

    44. Creator Balabanto on May 15, 2012

      Hey, I don't even use the CU and I pledge every hero or champions product. I dropped 250. I like my copies signed.

    45. Creator Winddancer Soto on May 14, 2012

      We Lost Mythic Hero - Let us not loss this book - Tell anyone you know that plays Hero to help out!

      Support the Game :)

    46. Creator Winddancer Soto on May 14, 2012

      Winddancer Soto and "The Grrl Gamers of Greensboro" (G3) just added there support :)

    47. Creator M. J. C. Faulkner on May 13, 2012

      I am telling everyone I can about it - I got the three volume set

    48. Creator Charles Picard on May 13, 2012

      Nice, after the changes... we are creeping up on 10K.
