      @Nathan, conversion costs are prohibitive at the moment. We want to add this book to Roll20, but it's not in the budget. In future projects we may set it as a stretch goal.

      any idea if the roll20 files were releashed or if its still in the pipeline?

      Sweet Revenge of the Horde for 5E just downloaded for fantasy ground for me. Can't wait to wreak some more havoc on my players.

      @Nord Games Only the Pathfinder version appears to be in their store. I pledged for the 5e version and have not received any notifications yet. Updating Fantasy Grounds also does not yet download the content.

      @All, the Fantasy Grounds files are now ready. If you pledged for the Fantasy Grounds files during the Kickstarter you should be receiving an email from SmiteWorks with instructions on how to claim your files. Please get in touch with us if you don't receive anything from them.

      @Matt Go to the forums and ask the developer of the Roslof Keep module the reason for that. I think it had to do with an agreement needing to be signed with the publisher. I don't recall much mention in that Kickstarter campaign.

      I was able to get Roslof Keep as an official module in my account, you should be able to get it as well, just email support.

      The issue with any conversion is that they are done by freelancers.

      @Michael I understand that. Also with FG new Pathfinder push, I was just frustrated. Previous campaigns for modules had to be sent to me by the creators. The complete roslfof campaign for one is and example of FG never sending the module or notification. Even worse months later they released it for sale. All the while the creator had the finished module, months before FG release.

      Just looking forward to it. Just my experiences give me concern.

      Based on the FG forums, the person working on the 5e version will be done very soon. And then it needs to pass QA.

      Smiteworks (Fantasy Grounds) only would contact you if your email address given to them by the kickstarter creator did not match the one used by their system. Otherwise, the module shows up the next time you connect and update.

      So I got a sale email from Fantasy Grounds. I see the Pathfinder version for sale. Says released 8/23/2017. I got the Roslof Keep module for FG in another KS Campaign. The creator had to send us the files since FG never contacted us. No contact from FG yet. Also wasn't the 5e completed prior to the PF Kickstarter.

      The FG files seem to be ready. Based on previous campaigns, they will match the KS email address with your FG email address and where they match this will automagically appear in your account. Where they do not match they will email you. I am guessing this will happen over the next few days.

      Bit of a problem as I have not received my book yet. Do you have a tracking number?

    15. Nord Games 14-time creator on

      @David, w00t! We're glad you like it!

      @Matt, FG files are being created as we speak. You'll receive an email from Fantasy Grounds when the files are ready.

      Ok I thought that was only the treasure decks. Thanks for the update.

    22. Nord Games 14-time creator on

      @DM Nate, the critical hit decks are out of stock. The re-stock that we received with the Treasure Deck order were not up to our standard of quality. We are having production re-print and re-ship all of the decks. We are expecting them this week or next week.

      Any word on my shipment? I ordered a bunch of add ons with the critical hit decks. Still no word or shipping notice. What's going on?

    24. Nord Games 14-time creator on

      w00t! We hope you enjoy them! It's an inexpensive way of getting a lot of monsters on the board.

      Personally I’m fine waiting, I know it is going to be awesome. Fantasy Grounds just grew so fast over the last couple years that I don’t think they ever anticipated as much work as they have now.

    27. Nord Games 14-time creator on

      Still waiting, if anyone wants a refund or store credit on our website we will go ahead and do that. It's just taking too long...

      Any word on the Fantasy Grounds version? I know those guys get backed up but heres to wishful thinking.

    29. Nord Games 14-time creator on

      Thank you all for your positive feedback! You can pick up bases for the pawns from many hobby websites, ebay, and amazon. Just look for "Pawn Basis" and you should find what you need. We are still waiting on the delivery from production on the Critical Hit Decks. We will post an update as soon as we have received them and fulfill those remaining orders.

      Fantastic book. Definitely going to be a useful supplement. I wish the pawns had come with bases, but that's not a big deal when they look so awesome!

      Got mine today (Ontario, Canada) and it is really an awesome book. It's better than I expected. This will let me do some incredible things with these races. Thanks!

      P.s. Not sure I got the PDF email, might of got caught in my spam filter. Will check.

    37. Nord Games 14-time creator on

      @Michael, we will post an update when we hear back from the folks at Fantasy Grounds.

      @Toby, thank you very much for your acclaim. We write these books for our own enjoyment, but it makes us so happy to hear your feedback!

      @Nord Games - Will we be getting the lair maps as a separate set of PDFs, or only as part of the PDF for the bestiary?
