Have a question?
Is the shipping still on for July?
Not really Zachary, other than to say that Badger has started layout. I've got poor Badger working overdrive :/
Any recent updates in the past month?
Nope, just my name.
I sent you a message from my account just now, hopefully that help link me to the project.
I can't find you on my list of backers. Did you use a nom-de-plume?
Just checking in, Protector level backer who has received my DTRPG download code for TTWLB back in March, but no mention or delivery of the book yet. Any eta for the physical copy of TTWLB?
I was delighted to find my copy of TTWLB had arrived yesterday, after troubled beginnings. l wasn't sure what to expect from a POD hardcover, but it looks fine. I'm really looking forward to the hardcover FSLN.
Hey now, as someone who grew up in Darke County, I resemble that remark!
Glad to hear it Colm. Actually, it was delivered by Byakhee to Celeano for censor review and cataloging, then returned via black galley to Darke County, Ohio, where it was danced around nude by the entire Farnsworth/Bell clan beneath their Great Tree. After they were, um, done with it, it was then sent a short ways down the road to be a coffee table book at a senior center, thrown out in the trash, briefly used in a focus group psychological experiment as a reference point, and then (in the aftermath), the crime scene cleanup crew finally realized that it had been misplaced.
@Steph and team. Book, TTWLB, finally arrived today! Not sure where it had gone, because the original packaging from the UK had been replaced. At any rate, it arrived! :-) Cheers! Looking forward to getting stuck into it!
Hi Jeffrey, boy do I feel stupid. That's what happens when I duck into kickstarter during work hours quickly without taking everything in, lol. Thanks for the clarity and appreciate your efforts to get it to us as soon as you can. ;)
David W J Smith--TTWLB is book one from our back catalog. Only one pledge level (the highest) will be getting anything TTWLB related, and that was in hard cover. There was no pledge level in this KS for TTWLB in pdf or softcover. If you pledged for pdf and softcover, you pledged (only) for FSLN (book two). Which I am busily working on every weekend--the text is nearly done and should be done this weekend. PDFs and softcovers of TTWLB are available at drivethrurpg or its affiliates.
I might be late to the party here but I see that people are saying that they have received hard copies of TTWLB. I pledged for a PDF and soft copy cover. Have the soft copies been sent out? My pledge say approx shipping in Jul 2017.
I also haven't been notified by Drivethrurpg of any PDF being made available. I'm presuming I should have received the PDF by now....
@Stephanie, cheers! Appreciated. I'll let you know via Kickstarter message how it goes.
I'm sorry Colm. While it's OBS' responsibility to replace lost orders I take it personally. Let me know in a week what they've said. Whatever the outcome, you will get your promised book.
@Team, yes, I received the shipping confirmation on Sat 25th.
Hi Colm, Did you receive the email notification of it being shipped?
Currently still awaiting the hardback in Estonia, shipped on 24th from the UK. Have been in touch with customer support at DriveThru. I am sitting tight and hopefully it will be with me shortly.
@Sid, well, cheers to a speedy resolution then!
@Senator Meow, today l recieved emails from drivethrurpg.com suggesting the situation has been remedied. You're probably right about the cause, but top marks to drivethrurpg and/or Stygian Fox for fixing it so promptly. And presumably on public holidays for Easter. Less a cursed box than an easter egg.
@Sid, I also already had the TTWLB PDF in my library before the KS, but my order history shows an order for the physical copy being placed on my account for 03/22/2017. I would wager that if your order history doesn't show it, it hasn't been ordered. Perhaps related to that email snarl from about a month ago? Not to reopened any cursed boxes or anything...
My rpgnow account makes no mention of a delivery of a hard copy of TTWLB, and l certainly haven't recieved one yet in the mail.
I'm backed at the right level, and can see "The Mark of Evil" file alright. I already had TTWLB in the library, having bought it last year, well before this KS. Could this have made the Kickstarter file rendundant and thus somehow prevented it from being mailed? Or is it just anonymously in transit? How do l check?
Tcho-tcho kid-lets... the cold never seems to really touch them...
Two weird little female children I've never seen in my neighborhood, not wearing coats despite the 39 degree day, dropped off my copy of TTWLB today.
My TTWLB appeared squatting silently in my garage. Seems appropriately ominous!
Just opened up my TTWLB hardback! It's wonderful! Thank you guys so much!
Came home to a beautiful book on my doorstep! Thanks, Stephanie, Jeff, et al.!
My copy of TTWLB arrived today (in Hellgium). /me happy ;)
My physical copy of TTWLB arrived yesterday. Looks beautiful. Can't wait to read it and review it on my channel.
As long as your address is correct Marcus everything should be fine �. Wait two weeks and if you don't receive the TTWLB book then come back to me.
Hi. I think I am one of the affected Protectors. I received your notification about the PDF via mail and could download them. I also received the survey and filled it out. I also received a confirmation mail that my survey was successfully transfered. However I did not receive a notification about a print delivery. Such an order is also not under my "last orders" tab. I checked my mail notifications setting in Drivethru as recommended. It is not blocked. Can I do anything else to ensure that everything is set up correctly on my side?
Could all those who pledged at PROTECTOR LEVEL but haven't received their emails about their copy of THE THINGS WE LEAVE BEHIND please check whether they have blocked DriveThruRPG as a sender in their email account OR in the DTRPG/RPGNow account have chosen the 'no emails' setting.
Thanks, downloaded my copy of TTWLB without problem. All good!
Can we please add into updates what Pledge level these updates affect. Great to see the constant comms that KS could learn from but these are clearly for higher end backers.
@Michael Collins: no man, only the highest pledge level should have anything yet, including a survey.
Argh, reading comprehension fail at my end! You are/were talking about Things We Leave Behind books + pdfs, not ones for Fear's Sharp thingies, in the latest update. Already have those via previous KS, and my pledge does not include those, so I shouldn't have received anything yet anyway (I think?). Sorry. Ignore my previous comment. :(
Like I posted in the latest update comments, I also haven't received anything -- email now or survey earlier, at least as far as I can remember (can't be 100% sure about receiving/answering survey, I get a *lot* of email :/ ). My email is email@example.com
Hey there! I backed at the 9 $ level - should I be filling out a survey or anything? I hadn't recieved a link to anything and scoured through my e-mail's spam looking for anything related to a survey for this. Maybe I am too early? Either way, can't wait to read what you guys cooked up for my CoC group! Thank you for all your hard work!
Nice job on the character concepts! I admit I haven't read it thoroughly yet, but it looks pretty good!
I'm gonna input them all in by hand and hopefully we can get this sorted for when all the other backers need their books :)
Going over the Backer Report with a fine tooth comb it is a little coincidental that some of those who have told me they haven't received their PDF seemed to have put their email in the wrong place. :/
It's called "media blindness". It's understandable really. We're bombarded by so much information that we have to tune a lot of it out four own sanity.
Incidentally, Chris Tang has gotten back to me. He's traced the emails all the way to the delivery system which proves they went ok. As people are still answering the survey it shows that the 'fault' is definitely at the recipients end.
Meaning people either have entered the wrong email, the right email incorrectly, or it's been bunker by their email provider.
There isn't anything else i can do now except try to resend all the pdfs. This, however, is using the emails backers used in kickstarter, in other words, exactly the same method as last time.
I'm still working on getting you physical copies.
Oh, and for the two people who emailed me today, the 'Witness' level does not get a pdf of TTWLB so obviously there isn't a missing PDF for you.
Yeah, one thing I've learned is that people don't like to read information. Signs, posters, updates. It's to much of a bother for a lot of people.
Chris Tang of OBS is on the case! Hurrah!
LOL. Bless ya, Bud!
I needed that.
I am just going to grab Liz, go to the Winchester, have a nice cold pint, and wait for all of this to blow over - and hope my physical copy of TTWLB arrives without me having to do anything. ;¬)
"I didn't get my PDF. What should I do?"
If you're not at Protector Level; nothing.
I've wasted my morning answering messages from people who aren't entitled to the TTWLB PDF messaging me to ask where their PDF is.
They clearly haven't bother to read the updates or comments.
I'm sorry, but I'm at a complete loss as to why I need to keep saying this. It has had one effect though, I won't be offering a higher tier with previous books with our next Kickstarter.
I'd like to think Steph is kidding and that people who didn't pay aren't complaining (since you'd knpw if your card got charged, right)? and that people who didn't pledge for a back copy of TTWLB aren't complaining about not getting it. Sigh. Again, folks, we love you but FSLN will be out in Julyish.
