      Mea Culpa. Don't know how I missed that.

    2. Creator Robin D. Laws on December 16, 2013

      John, see update #58.

    3. Creator John Ickes on December 16, 2013

      Any word on the theme song?

    4. Creator Ucho Dacosta on December 9, 2013

      Ok, you guys, both books are now safely here in my arms! I was getting a little bit worried since it was close to mid-december and there was no sign of my books, but fortunately for me this wasn't my first rodeo so, before contacting Cat, this very morning I decided to take a trip to my postal office.

      After inquiring about a missing package, the nice lady at the office asked me if I had a code or anything and explained me how she couldn't help me without one, but after pouting a little bit she asked for my name and went inside to take a look. Turns out poor little things had been gathering dust for a week or so!

      I'm perusing the books as I write and let me tell you: the PDFs do them no justice. The illustrations are just gorgeous and the layout (which is something I was a little bit skeptical about) fits perfectly.

      Thanks to Robin and the Pelgrane Press team for such a wonderful product!

    5. Creator Robin D. Laws on November 28, 2013

      Thanks for the kind words, Roy!

      Thurs 28 November. A somewhat overcast, but hot, summery Johannesburg, South Africa.

      I just walked my doglet to the Post Office and back. Tore open the mysterious book package. And found my copies of HILLFOLK and BLOOD ON THE TRACKS.

      They're beautifully produced and printed. And I've been sucked straight into reading how the game system works. It's compelling reading, and I'm wasting time writing this message.

      But Robin and team need to be thanked. This is a HUGE achievement! THANK YOU!

      Marc - Check in with Cat and she can let you know how long an interval to leave before treating the shipment as AWOL.

    8. Creator Marc Kevin Hall on November 18, 2013

      I must have offended the shipping gods, as I've still not received my Battler package here in DC. How long should I wait before pestering cat@pelgranepress.com?

    9. Creator James Cowling on November 13, 2013

      Got my retailer pack today (after the package having been sent back due to my error -- whoops). The remainder of the retailer pack (after my share) is on the RPG shelves of my quirky little store. Thanks, folks. :-)

    10. Creator Robin D. Laws on November 8, 2013

      Buggy -

      It is probably a shipping error. Please contact Pelgrane Press customer service at cat@pelgranepress.com.

    11. Creator Buggy on November 8, 2013

      Hello there! I've just received my two books, which is a very good news: can't wait to read all this good stuff. Anyway, I am a bit concerned about the lack of cards & gemstones... Are they sent in a separate parcel or what? Has any european backer received these game accesories yet?

    12. Creator Alistair on November 4, 2013

      It arrived a couple of days ago here in New Zealand and could I just say - one bloody brilliant product. Thanks a lot :)

    13. Creator Shane Rogers on November 4, 2013

      Got mine in the southern part of the US a few days ago. Loving it so far. The books are gorgeous.

    14. Creator GhostWolf69 on November 4, 2013

      Yes! Got mine today in Gothenburg, Sweden in all it's limited edition glory! Happy to see another Kickstarter fulfilled.

    15. Creator Mitch A. Williams on November 4, 2013

      Yep, patiently waiting in the southern end of the U.S.A.... I did say patiently right? 8^/

    16. Creator GhostWolf69 on November 4, 2013

      Still nothing here in Sweden, though I see another Swede got his 2 days ago.... patience is a virtue I hear... *grumbles*

    17. Creator Robin D. Laws on November 2, 2013

      Vicki - Fun packs were sent out some time ago. Please contact Pelgrane Press customer service at cat@pelgranepress.com and head office will get that straightened out for you.

    18. Creator Nigel Phillips on November 2, 2013

      Anniversary of the project finishing and mine arrived today!
      Putting th away until Christmas

    19. Creator Vicki H. on November 1, 2013

      I got my package today (no worries about what to do this weekend now! ;) ) and everything looks great so far. :) I am looking forward to looking through the books in more detail. Just a question, though: the tier I pledged at includes "Robin Laws Fun Pack", and I was just wondering, is that still yet to be sent out, or has it already been e-mailed out and I just missed it somehow? Any information would be most appreciated, thanks!

    20. Creator Trodax on November 1, 2013

      Books and goodies in Sweden today! Looking good!

    21. Creator Balgin Stondraeg on November 1, 2013

      Well Folks, my package arrived yesterday (on all hallow's eve, no less) here in the UK so others, indeed, cannot be far behind. It came courtesy of Leisure Games (which I had not expected). Everything was present and correct. A top quality product. The books were slightly larger than I'd expected. For some reason I was expectign them to be slightly smaller than A4 size. Maybe A5. But no. Full size and full of fun.

    22. Creator GhostWolf69 on November 1, 2013

      Oooohh... that means my can't be too far away! :-D

    23. Creator rcronan on October 31, 2013

      UK - mine arrived too, looks good, and always a pleasure to receive a physical Kickstarter reward.

    24. Creator David Scott on October 31, 2013

      Just received mine in the UK. Very nice piece of work: books, cards and stones, the lot. Well Done Robin and team for a top quality product.

    25. Creator Graham Brand on October 31, 2013

      Mine arrived today (UK). Beautiful book, and the gaming stones are lovely. :-)

    26. Creator Jacob Trewe on October 29, 2013

      Got my books (USA)! Nicely packaged, no damage in shipping.

    27. Creator Cthulhu Kid on October 27, 2013

      I received both of the books I pledged for in the mail yesterday. Thanks for the elegant solution to avoidance of character development and players strong-arming/god-modding their emotional aspects.

      Badassness heaped upon badassness ... drop an update to us Backers here if you cook up something as equally impressive in the future. [:)]

    28. Creator Patrick Daily on October 26, 2013

      Got both of my books today! Can't wait to run these!

    29. Creator Jon Johnson on October 25, 2013

      Got my 2 Books today! Can't wait to start reading, they look really good :)

      p.s. I didn't get a shipping note but then again my KS email is messed up.

    30. Creator Edward Hand on October 25, 2013

      Just received my two books in Wisconsin. They look great. I have to wait until they thaw out a bit before cracking them open... one of the perils of living up north.

    31. Creator Shawn McLaughlin on October 24, 2013

      Are we supposed to get a shipping notification when ours ship? I'm just getting a single book and was under the impression that those shipped first. I haven't heard if it's shipped yet

    32. Creator Jason Childs on October 23, 2013

      I received both books today. They are much bigger than expected and absolutely beautiful. In Oceanside, CA (San Diego area)...

      Figured I'd let folks know that it seems as though the books are on their way. :)

    33. Creator Jabsloth on October 19, 2013

      You would think there would have been some kind of post one way or the other....

    34. Creator John Ickes on October 18, 2013

      Does anyone know if the books shipped Wed. or are we just twittling our toes for a while longer?

    35. Creator Kevin Mayz on October 15, 2013

      Why is it that physical copies were for sale at Gen Con (which was 2 months ago) and I still havent recieved my copy? Can someone please explain what advantage I have recieved for backing this project early?

    36. Creator Cody Parcell on October 8, 2013

      To paraphrase The Sandlot, "You are KILLING me, Laws!"

    37. Creator Jack Holcomb on October 7, 2013

      I'd also appreciate an update on shipping of the physical copies. Last I heard they were to ship in September...

    38. Creator Kalysto on October 7, 2013

      It seems that I didn't use the right link for snow on the blood pdf while the Hillfolk one was good, is it possible to get it back ? Thanks in advance

    39. Creator Scott Haring on October 5, 2013

      Add me to the curious, especially since the last update said shipments were going out "shortly." That was about six weeks ago. Even if the news is bad, please post some sort of update.

    40. Creator Ian Williams on October 4, 2013

      Was just coming to ask what Jacob did. Any updates on physical shipments?

    41. Creator Jacob Trewe on October 4, 2013

      Have the physical copies shipped yet?

    42. Creator Robin D. Laws on September 23, 2013

      Johan: A first batch of pitches is written and illustrated and awaiting layout. I'm sorry to say that we'll have to rejuggle the order slightly to give a couple of writers, including John, more time to complete their pieces.

    43. Creator Johan Nilsson on September 21, 2013

      Any hope for the series pitches of the month to arrive soon? I am really intrigued by John Wick's Honor Among Thieves, and really look forward to it. Will we see a first pitch this month, or in October?

    44. Creator CJ Romer on September 15, 2013

      Have I missed the shipping date? I can't recall when Pelgrane were shipping but thought it soon after Gencon?

    45. Creator GhostWolf69 on September 14, 2013

      Any news on the shipping?

    46. Creator John Ickes on September 13, 2013

      I have an event next week end (20-22) at which I would like to be able to show off the hard copy. Any chance they have left the nest?

    47. Creator John Ickes on September 6, 2013

      Thank you sir, Was listening to _Ken & Robin Talk About Stuff_ and the opening music reminded me.

    48. Creator Robin D. Laws on September 4, 2013

      John: It's done and very cool. I want to give Pelgrane HQ time to supervise the main shipment before bugging them about getting it out to backers.

    49. Creator John Ickes on September 4, 2013

      Any word on the Hillfolk Theme Song?

    50. Creator John WS Marvin on August 23, 2013

      Great news, thanks hopefully-not-doomed-to-be-named-next-Batman Robin!
