Okay, it wasn't at night, but yesterday afternoon, the NYK Meteor, headed north to Norfolk, then New York, and eventually the UK, passed the Corcovado, headed south to Savannah and eventually Australia. It was off the coast of North Carolina somewhere, unfortunately just out of coastal radar range, so I couldn't catch a shot of them right next to each other, but here’s a screenshot of their paths passing each other.
Well, aside from the fact that I think it’s kind of cool to be able to watch these ships move around the world, what that all means is that the container headed for Europe is getting close. It’s scheduled to hit the UK in about two weeks, maybe a little sooner. After that, figure about week or so to be unloaded, clear customs, and be delivered to the warehouse that will be shipping it to backers, then shipping them all out should only take a couple days, at which point I think you’ll be getting tracking emails for your individual packages.
As for Australia, the Corcovado is sitting in Savannah, Georgia right now, and its next port of call is Sydney, Australia. I expect it will reach the Panama Canal in a few days, then head straight for Sydney. Estimated arrival date is currently March 10, then like above, add a week or so for unloading, customs, etc., and a few days to a week for shipping them all out.
All of those estimated dates are subject to weather, customs inspections, and other possible delays, but we’re getting closer by the day.
Overseas Address Corrections – Last Chance for Wave One
So this is it, your last chance to get your address corrections in if you’re in Europe. Australians and other backers have another week or two, but you’re running out of time, too. I’ll be collecting and sending the final backer address data to the UK warehouse at the end of this week, so get us any last minute address changes for Europe NOW. If you've already sent it, you’re fine, but if you've moved recently, please get us your current address as soon as possible.
More Online Resources Coming
I posted the painting templates from the rulebook's color guide, plus a couple that didn't appear, as well as “blanks,” on DriveThruRPG a few days ago, and more stuff is coming. I’ll try and get some detailed instruction sheets and other items posted this week, so check back in a few days.
