@Roger Cawte - Caverns and Crusoe?
Sorry, my bad. I had them filed (and no idea why!) under something called the Robinson Projection.
Thanks. Fingers crossed for a copy of 1st edition . . .
@Tim Soholt - It depends on the mix. Three to four is the minimum number, but it's tough to give an exact count. Books are from the last three decades, and prices range from $7 to $30 or more.
Incidentally, how many books are in one of these archive bundles? I'm guessing an average of five or six but variable to avoid people getting five 32-page adventures, but I couldn't actually find any indication other than the product picture with five question-mark book covers and the "minimum $60 value" statement.
The "one per" limit on the Warehouse 23 archive bundles has been removed:
@Roger Cawte - PDFs were delivered to backers (those who supported for the game in PDF) in August. We sent the PDFs out while we were at Gen Con, and announced the release of the PDFs in a Kickstarter update:
Having backed the Kickstarter, I am disappointed to find the PDF's available in Warehouse 23 before they are available to the backers. The other way round would have been better and more in line with your normal approach.
@David Starner: Sorry, correction, that is moving to more than one per person tomorrow, I wasn't given the complete info there apparently. Sorry about the confusion! -HS
@David Starner: If you're referring to the archive bundles, those will not be opening up to more than one per person. -HS
Any ETA on when it will open up to more than one per person?
@Owen Smith: As far as Warehouse 23, FedEx is who we ship through, and have our best rates with. It's actually not cheaper for us to ship via US mail from our warehouse here, for the packages we ship. We do not ship uninsured/untracked. -HS
@Owen Smith: Currently the plan is to offer international through our Warehouse 23 system, because so far the international solutions we have found to ship from our normal fulfillment is not tenable for the amount of orders; we still end up losing money, and backers still have to pay real shipping charges, which are high. We will have more information about it during the campaign. -HS
I got most of the way through ordering one of these for $30 on W23, and then the cheapest shipping option it offered me to the UK was $50. At which point I stopped, I'm not paying that much. That's FedEx, which is always expensive. Why isn't there a US mail option? I don't care if it goes surface and takes 3 months and is uninsured, I'm willing to take the risk on something I paid $30 for.
I understand completely. I just figured it never hurt to ask, lol. More than anything, I just want to say a big Thank You to Steve Jackson Games for just over 30 years of GURPS awesomeness!
@Chase Street: Sorry, completely random on our side to keep it fair! We're hoping some folks find some hidden treasure though. -HS
I don't suppose I could just happen to receive Space Atlas 1, 4, and Lensman in a mystery bundle?
I've been a GURPS fan ever since I got 1st ed for Christmas back when it was released. I now have at least one version of every GURPS book that's been in print (sometimes 2 like I have the original Fantasy and I have 4E Fantasy).
Those 3 books are the only ones I don't have. I'll get them eventually mind you, but I don't feel the great need to throw $25 or more per Space Atlas, lol. Still, awesome idea and I'm sure people will be lining up to take ad vantage of it!
