Get Wave One Items for your Wave Two Rewards – but you need to do it fast
If you missed the previous Update, read this first!
You can get Wave One rewards in exchange for the unrealized Wave Two rewards – but you will have to pay for shipping. We estimate shipping to all 5,000+ backers around the world will cost $120,000-$160,000. We’re sorry, but Palladium Books just does not have the resources to cover that expense, so if you would like to get Wave One rewards in exchange for the Wave Two rewards, we must ask you to pay for the shipping.
We will do our best to ship as inexpensively as possible, and we will only pass along our actual costs – with Palladium covering the cost of labor – but Palladium does not enjoy the steep shipping discounts of mega-corps like Amazon. Moreover, our overseas backers will have to contend with Customs fees, taxes and other costs.
Individual costs may vary substantially depending on the volume you are receiving and where it is shipping to. The size or weight of the package will also have an impact on cost. Shipping costs should not be too bad for most backers in the USA, probably averaging around $20-$35, but shipping to Canada is easily double that amount, and triple or more for overseas thanks to the nightmare that is dimensional weight.
$18-$35 in the USA is our rough estimate for most typical packages shipping within the contiguous United States of America. More to Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico. Of course, some will be much less and some much more depending on how much you are receiving. We will pack up your rewards, weigh it all, and let you know the shipping cost BEFORE we charge your credit card and ship.
$40-$70 to Canada is our very rough estimate.
$60-$100 or more to overseas/EU/Australia is our very rough estimate.
Note: The lower numbers above are based on a 9 pound (4 kg) package consisting of one core game and one of each of the six add-on packages. The second, higher price is based on 2 core box games and one of each expansion pack; 13 pounds (just under 6 kg). We think most backers should fall in this range. Obviously, fewer items will mean a lower shipping cost. More will increase the cost.
We know this isn’t what you hoped for. And again, we are very sorry, but it is all we can offer.
Reward Exchange Details
If you want to receive Wave One rewards for Wave Two – and pay the shipping cost – this is what to do:
1. Send us a Kickstarter Message to request reward exchange.
Your absolute best method for contacting Palladium to request Wave One rewards for your Wave Two Remaining Rewards Value (RRV) is via Kickstarter Message. This not only makes it easier for us to keep track of your specific reward selections, it also lets us easily verify your identity as a backer of this project. Once we receive your message, we will provide you with your Remaining Rewards Value so that you can select the Wave One items of your choice at the RRT Kickstarter campaign values, not their current retail prices.
If for some reason you cannot send us a message through Kickstarter itself, you can email us at email@example.com, but it will take us extra time to verify that you are a backer, and you might need to provide additional information (e.g. your Backer Number, BackerKit Pledge Number, pledge amount, etc.) to help us do so.
If you cannot send us a Kickstarter Message or an email, you can call the office order line, 734-721-2903. However, to help eliminate confusion and ensure that we send you the correct rewards, please refrain from calling unnecessarily, except to send us your credit card information to cover shipping.
To save yourself time and to get put at the front of the line for selecting rewards that are very limited in quantity, include your reward exchange selections in your first Kickstarter Message. Calculate your own Remaining Rewards Value as follows:

3. Send us a Kickstarter Message with your reward exchange selections. Please also include your current shipping address, just to make sure we have your correct, current address. Make sure to include your Apartment Number.
4. We will pull your reward exchange selections, pack them in a shipping carton, weigh it, and calculate the exact shipping cost. We will then send you a Kickstarter Message to let you know what that cost is.
5. Send us your credit card info (via Kickstarter Message, or by phone at 734-721-2903) and we will charge you for the shipping cost, or send a PayPal payment to firstname.lastname@example.org, then let us know you have sent payment.
6. Once we have received payment for shipping, we will ship your rewards, and you will receive an email with a tracking number for the package.
DEADLINE: March 20, 2018
Time is of the essence. We must hear from you as soon as possible and start shipping rewards out. In addition, we have limited inventory, so the sooner you tell us what you want and pay for shipping, the more likely you are to get the exact Wave One rewards you want. AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

As part of our license agreement, Palladium has a short window (from now until the end of March) to liquidate our stock of Robotech® RPG Tactics (RRT) products, Robotech® Shadow Chronicles® Role-Playing Game books, and the PDFs of the original Robotech® RPG series currently available on DriveThruRPG.com.
