      I gave up years ago. Of course over the years I've found through many communities how much of a snake David is.

      I am wondering, are the complaints still recent?

      same story as chris..

    5. Chris on August 4, 2016

      When I went to PAX Prime in 2013, they had copies of F2F for sale there, so the copies were evidently printed and sold, but I never got my copy (or any of the extras, since I pledged at the $65 level). I emailed him in March of 2014 and this was his response:

      "Thank you. I will once the second printing happens. I'm just trying to get up the funds myself to do it. So I don't have an ETA. But I'll make sure you get yours.

      Thank you for your message."

      I haven't heard from him since.

      So is anyone else Reporting David so he can't scam anyone else?

      It's been 4 years since I backed this project and I've had nothing.

      Hello David.

      So I backed both Farewell to Fear and Apotheosis Drive X.
      Each time I selected a pledge level with physical copies: the 85$ Bronze level for F2F and the 75$ Two Books level for ADX.
      F2F was due in August 2012 and ADX in July 2013.
      And still I didn't received any physical copy from you.
      For F2F you told me you had problems with shipping costs to France and I propose to send you a little bit more money to cover for that. But you didn't seem to be interested.
      And you've been silent on both F2F and ADX for months now.

      So now it's either "delivery time" or "money back time"... for both projects.
      About option 1 (delivery): I'm still ready to send you a little bit more money to cover for shipping.
      About option 2 (money back): it means a total of 175$ (85$ for F2F and 90$ for ADX) that I'm expecting to get through PayPal (or any other option you prefer).
      Choice is all yours.

      Without any answer from you under a week I will have to take further steps.
      The very first one being contacting Kickstarter and making sure you won't be able to run a project on this crowdfunding platform ever again.

      Still waiting on my 65$ pledge rewards. Got reminded by a post on a RPG community complaining about this RPG's lack of follow through.

      An annual end of year official Update would be good to summarise the situation and indicate if books and Foie Gras to Fear will be out in 2016 or not

    10. David A Hill Jr 7-time creator on July 1, 2015

      Matthew: Hit me up privately with their address. I did come across a case of copies. So I can send one their way.

      Luckily, this is one of the few projects I've not received.

      David, for what it's worth, I'll be in the States around the end of July. If it would be easier you could ship it to my folks place as I know how much more expensive shipping to the UK is.

    12. Jordan Goldenberg on May 20, 2015

      This Backing really made me rethink backing future projects on Kickstarter. It's been three years and I've not heard anything in over a years time about my products owed. I haven't backed anything since this. Though I've wanted to.

      Matthew: I would hope you don't. I'm going to do another run. It's a lot of money. I'm saving up for it. It's not easy, but it's happening.

      Merry Christmas, and sorry for the wait.

      Okay so should we just consider this another failed Kickstarter at this point since we have had nothing but radio silence for months?

      For what it's worth I will be state side for two weeks starting next week. So if the overseas shipping is the problem, then I can give you the US address I'll staying at.

      So...where are we at now?

    22. David A Hill Jr 7-time creator on June 12, 2014

      Not at the moment. We're basically trying to get adjusted, caught up, and get the money together for a second printing so we can get out replacements and things. It's a little complicated from a practical and logistic standpoint, so we're trying to figure out ways that'll work for us without hurting too bad.

      Just checking in. Any updates?

    24. David A Hill Jr 7-time creator on March 31, 2014

      That's totally fair. I'll see if I can't stop in and touch base. I'd hate to use the actual update function, because I feel that's kind of spamming people's inboxes for no real reason.

      But I will make the effort to at least keep from radio silence.

    25. Missing avatar

      Matthew Skail on March 31, 2014

      I appreciate the update. I don't mind being told the truth, even when it's not the hoped for response. I would rather hear bad news (or simply a 'sorry, nothing new to report' periodically) than radio silence, which is what I have had from some other kickstarters. :(

    26. David A Hill Jr 7-time creator on March 29, 2014

      I don't have a positive update right now for you. I am still scrambling to get caught up. I fell behind on my 'day job' work that pays the bills, because we were living out of hotels for two months. I'm getting closer to a point where I can devote solid time to the project. But I'm in a position where I'm working 18~ hours a day to get where I need to be. What little bit of free time I have left, I just don't have the mental bearings to do other stuff.

      I'm trying. It's taking time. I'm more than a little overwhelmed right now, but I'm trying.

      Matthew Skail on March 29, 2014

      Nearing two months since I last asked, so can we get an update on this?

    28. David A Hill Jr 7-time creator on February 11, 2014

      Sorry if you feel that way. I am still working toward these things. Just haven't had enough time.

      And yes. I did move for work. While I'd like to devote all my time to this, that's just not reasonable. Could I have budgeted my time better? Probably. But when your day job is creative work, and your night job is creative work, sometimes it gets to be too much. At a certain point, you're just staring at a screen, because you're spent.

      That's one reason I moved for work; I had a good offer that wasn't in a creative field, so I could afford the time and resources necessary to finish this all up. I'm trying to get caught up with the "day job" work so I can devote my spare time to getting this all done. It's difficult. I'm sorry. I was stretched thin, and I'm getting there.

      I still have not received the key or map that was at my pledge level. At this point, with the move to Japan, I don't expect to. Just as I don't expect to ever receive the Amaranthine anthology.

      I understand the problems that Mr. Hill and Mr. Young have experiences but much of this preceded the current troubles.

      Hi David, international backer (UK) no sign of the physical book, not sure if it could still be in transit or if one of the missing ones..

    32. David A Hill Jr 7-time creator on November 21, 2013

      Thank you, Russell! Glad to hear it. For other replacement international shipments, I'm trying to get them together. It's just taking me a bit. Sorry on that. I have no idea what went on with that batch. I handed off like 600 packages that day, and about 30 seem to have had problems.

      R Litzkow on November 21, 2013

      Literally just received my copy of F2F and other books in the mail, all books were in pristine condition and just as as good looking as i'd imagined.

      Very happy about all of this, would definitely back other projects by this content creator in the future. Once again, thanks David for bearing with me and for giving me the joy that is reading/having a physical copy of the books.

    34. David A Hill Jr 7-time creator on November 7, 2013

      You totally don't. No issue there.

      In your specific case, you're getting a handful of books I don't have prints for; I haven't been able to get additional runs. But I think I've got a solution for that (I believe I might have a couple of copies that were stored at a relative's house). Can you do me a slight favor and hit me up with a direct email (not through KS) with your current address? If you want to cover shipping, that's on you. I'll get you a shipment out.

      R Litzkow on November 7, 2013

      I appreciate the update from September David, and I don't want to seem pushy, but I have attempted to correspond with you in order sort out some sort of additional payment for shipment in order to resolve at least my own order.

      I am more than likely going to end up moving again at the end of this year so I am really hoping to wrap up some of my still pending shipments to prevent any sort of postal loss. I do appreciate the fact that you have had to deal with personal hardships over the past few months so I don't want to seem pushy.

    36. Stephen Kenneally on September 29, 2013

      I understand your situation. Just felt the need to mention it in case of slipping through the cracks.

    37. David A Hill Jr 7-time creator on September 22, 2013

      I'm getting to replacements and things as quickly as I can. Right now, every replacement and additional step is out of my pocket, so it's coming only as quickly as I can work extra and receive extra pay. These last couple of weeks, I've been in and out of the hospital, and fallen a bit behind on my Day Job work. Bear with me. I'll put together a more substantive update soon.

    38. Stephen Kenneally on September 22, 2013

      I haven't received my hardcover book yet (international backer here). Any word on this?

    39. David A Hill Jr 7-time creator on September 3, 2013

      I don't have any strong updates regarding those right yet. I'm trying to get where I need to be for that financially, it's just taking a bit.

      Got it, and sounds good on all counts. Thank you.

      Hiya! Posted this over in one of the updates, but thought I'd sling it here too. I've backed at physical-copy level of both this and ADX. Would it make it easier/cheaper for you to ship them out together? If so, I'd be happy with that. Also, don't know if you were still going with the key plan, but I'd actually prefer not to receive one if that's ok. Shipping to the UK, a parcel of books only shouldn't get held up at customs as (I believe) they're tax exempt.
