Yes. That's our fault. If you've pledged for the original "MAXIMILLIAN" level, you're paying $5 too much for shipping. Abandon that pledge and pledge at the Seventy Maxims level.
If you've pledged for the "MAXIMILLIAN (Corrected Shipping)", know that Howard is reeling with the irony of his screw-up. EU and CA backers are saving $10 and $3 respectively. Hold on with both hands! (We locked that one. No new backers there.)
"Seventy Maxims" and "SEVENTY MAXIMS Book with AIR DROP" are correct. If you want just the Maxims book, pick "Seventy Maxims." If you want the Maxims book AND the game PDFs, select "SEVENTY MAXIMS Book with AIR DROP."
Maybe! Play testing isn't the same as early access. If you and your group are interested in play testing, and can commit to fast turn-around and a bit of structure (like issuing everyone Phubahr weapons, or stress-testing specific rule tweaks), please contact us. Email firstname.lastname@example.org, and in the subject line include the phrase "Play Test? I can follow instructions!"
It should be obvious why that subject line is important.
No. The design of the book requires that it sometimes be held sideways, and that makes PDF frustrating. Unfortunately, re-designing the marginalia to run horizontally made the pages ugly and cluttered. Rather than accept money now to solve the problem, we decided to solve the problem at a later date, and sell PDFs then.
