All,

I know for the past month we've been incommunicado over here on Onslaught Two. Our Onslaught Two VF backers should ALL have their rewards by now. The hardcover OMR rulebook is still not quite there for Australian backers, but ALL other products should have arrived for all backers down under. 

As always, for any issues, please email support@petersengames.com. We have hired a new person to directly assist with shipping however, and this should speed up the resolution of related issues going forward.

Stuff you may have missed in O3!

There really is too much for me to put in this one update - Cthulhu Wars Onslaught 3 has really taken off and contains a LOT of new, cool things. Here is just a sampling:

Every Pledge in O3 gets Nodens!

The Investigators!

They're post-apocalyptic humans AS THEY SHOULD BE in Cthulhu Wars, not 1920's characters

The Investigators are ALL free Stretch Goals for all pledge levels in O3:

Help us get Amelia and the 8th one (named Victor Steele, although the O3 backers don't know that yet ;)

Brown Jenkins!

In our Contest of a Thousand Forms, Xollnic won with his entry of the neutral Terror(!) Brown Jenkins. At the last minute we decided we needed him to be in the game. So, he's being worked on now. Here is the WIP of his concept:

Your Credit for Onslaught 3!

Recall that IF you are an O2 backer (even a late backer and reading this), we have a "Thanks" credit for you on Onslaught 3. During the Pledge Manager, you will have $10 of credit which you can apply towards shipping, add-ons, or almost anything really. Sadly, we couldn't figure out a way for you to use it to reduce your base pledge price (since we cannot make pledge levels specific for a group of people). But even if you only use it for shipping, that's a saving for you. This credit is basically for your enduring patience with our shipping delays and mishaps of THIS Kickstarter. We recognize that without YOU, we literally wouldn't be here making great games. And so our collective hats are off to you. 

Lower Shipping Prices

We are offering lower shipping prices this time, and these should remain the same. I've gone over at length in prior updates as to why the O2 prices were raised, but these for O3 WON'T be. They are solid:

      @James ... thanks for your reply.
      You neglected to address my previous question of whether the Omega rule books had even left the United States for Australia after being M.I.A for over 5 months.

      Thankfully, Aetherworks updated Aussie backers a few hours ago via their Facebook page with the following ... "Good Evening, Kickstarter Backers,
      We have a quick Kickstarter update today - We have been advised by Petersen Games that the rulebooks for Cthulhu Wars we are waiting on will be leaving for us today or tomorrow. Once they have left we should have a better timeframe for arrival, and will update accordingly."

      So I guess backers down here that are waiting on the Omega rule book and the Library at Celeano will have another couple of months to wait before receiving either of these.

      Thanks for keeping us in the dark for so long! Seriously, over 5 months waiting to now find out via a third party that they still haven't even shipped!

      Great communication and respect for your backers guys. Really outstanding.

      I just re-read this update, and it states that the rulebook is "not quite there" for Australians. This was a month ago. I would appreciate a straight answer from PG about what is going on. This is extremely unprofessional.

    3. Bruce - Zen Pledger of Brimstone on

      Not so Arthur.
      Aetherworks have stated that they were told by PG only to ship the remaining orders that did not include the rulebook, and every update they post stated they have no eta for the rulebook.
      Those of us with Items outstanding due to shipping to the wrong country and the rulebook are still waiting on everything that was delayed, not just the rulebook.
      I sent a message last week about this and James (apparently) is still waiting on a reply from your 'shipper' as I've heard nothing since then.

      Rocco Pier Luigi,

      Email us at Support@petersengames.com please include the name and email address you use to pledge with. I can then look up you account and see what is going on with your pledge.

      I would like to read an update on the shipping status for EU delivery of onslaught 2, instead of an upadte on a new kickstarter. Aapparently they started in june but as today I have not received a tracking nubmer

    6. Brett Warburton on

      Aus backer, no Sleeper, Library, or rulebook yet for me.

      Library map, Sleeper faction and book for me :(

    8. Spiog on

      Thanks for the update but it really doesn't make things any clearer "rulebook is still not quite there for Australian backers", please define "not quite there", it's a bit like how long is a piece of string.
      As others have pointed out most of us are waiting for the rule book to arrive so that we can receive our other missing item the library map.

    9. Mathew Howell on

      Nope still missing Library map in NZ (as well as rulebook)

      Which I still find galling btw. The rulebook that I paid for is holding everything up, and is about to be made redundant anyway.

      Quite. Until the rulebook arrives I don't see myself receiving any other missing items :(

    12. Sam on

      Arthur: "but ALL other products should have arrived for all backers down under"

      Aetherworks on Friday: "We have been in contact with Petersen Games and starting next week we will be sending out complete orders that do not require the rulebook."

      So "arrived" in the sense of "have not been shipped yet".

      @Arthur said, "(named Victor Steele, although the O3 backers don't know that yet ;)"

      Well we do now. =D

      I have to admit, its a bit strange that I will have backed OS3 before getting all of my OS2 kickstarter o_0

      Er, no, I don't have my Library at Celaeno expansion yet...
