Thanks, Chris. That worked for me.
The Brigand link should now be working for all. Thank you for your patience.
Hi Mike -
I just completed a discussion with the General Roleplaying Game Line Manager at Modiphius about the various projects and their status.
Once Wave 1 was complete, the Monolith Sourcebook was the highest prio for the team, as it was the most complex and reliant on outside resources (writing, design, playtest, art, etc.). It required a much more comprehensive playtest cycle than the usual RPG rules, as the scenarios needed to be more finely balanced and don't rely on a GM with leeway to interpret situations that haven't been explicitly covered. It introduces entirely new modes of play, as well.
Every other project was pushed aside whenever drafts or layout copies of the Monolith Sourcebook came in, and it getting it done was always the highest priority.
Unlike the other projects, the Monolith book had 11 or 12 drafts in layout (depending on how you count them, but more realistically 16) different versions before being shown to the backers. When we ran it by the Conan experts, we stressed that it was an express high prio project and they were awesome in turning their feedback around in days vs. weeks.
Right now it is at the printer. It went to the printer on September 20th. The amount of time the printer takes is variable based on their other schedules, as (to be honest) RPGs are often a small part of their business. Once it leaves the printer, there's still shipping to the Modiphius warehouse, which is again entirely outside of our ability to affect.
I've just asked to check to get a status report with the printer, and am recommending that the moment the book hits the Modiphius warehouse, we launch a fulfillment of all of the orders that have that as their remaining item.
Hope this helps allay any concerns. If you have further issues, please contact email@example.com

Sorry, but I'm getting tired of the endless wait on the Monolith Tie-In.
I don't care about the who's and why's or the blame. Going on TWO YEARS LATE for what should have been a relatively easy tie-in to an already established game is ridiculous when entirely new games have been released along with follow-up expansions in that time.
I don't care about the money I pledged. It's the principle. You gained backers, like myself, that wouldn't have pledged for this campaign by offering the tie-in. And, after so long, I get the feeling that we, and the tie-in, are less of a priority to your primary content. Understandable, I suppose, but disappointing none-the-less.

We are working on it, folks. sorry for the delay.
I also have not received the updated version of Conan The Brigand...
I'm having the same issue as the others who have commented here.
I still don't see the updated version of Conan the Brigand in PledgeManager. It's not in the Conan the Brigand folder, nor is it in the Core Book folder or any other folder as far as I can tell. Am I missing something here?
Same error here.
I got that error message, too. I checked the core book's folder, and there is a Conan the Brigand file there, but it's an old one, dated July 4.
FWIW, my Pledge Manager page has a link to download the Monolith sourcebook; I'm downloading a v.11, dated Sept 21, right now.
Also getting an error message when I try to download Conan the Brigand.
I presume other folks are still waiting on some of their CONAN RPG STARTER KITs? I presume it is because I'm waiting for Wave 2?
Also waiting for any news on the Monolith tie-in. Tbh I'm starting to lose faith.
Got the same error message as Morgan.
same as Morgan and Ryan
Never ending story of waiting for the monolith book :(
Got the same message as Morgan. FYI.
Says this when I click on the folder:
"The key you provided for file access was invalid. This is usually caused because the file is no longer stored on MediaFire. This occurs when the file is removed by the originating user or MediaFire. Still have questions, or think we've made a mistake? Please contact support for further assistance."
I haven't seen any of the last few updated downloads in Pledge Manager, nor do I have a Claim New Downloads button. Last one I see is the Monolith update from September 3rd.
