What else to say?

You will get an direct message over the next few days (based on your tier) confirming your address. I don't want these packages to go astray.

Thanks for you patience with all this.

      Hey anyone who has received their stuff, please post links to pictures here as well. I don't have access to COTI (yet) so I can't see the pictures. I want to see pictures! :)

    2. Creator Elianka Segelski on April 1, 2013

      I'm about to go Solomani on some Imperial dudes....


    3. Creator Elianka Segelski on April 1, 2013

      I'm patient!
      I knew I would have to...
      but again updates are free and even a one liner would be nice!

      I don't mean any updates to pressure or waste precious time from Mark!

      But a short line with a quick pic... from Hey look guys.. we prepared these... those will look like this...

      Here another pic of the monkeys at work...


      I believe in the wind... but sometime the wind mush blow!

      I am not worried but I can understand peoples frustration. I am betting anyone contacted and/or receiving their books are not rushing here to tell us. A lack of communication or indication of progress just enhances that feeling. I understand I was a last minute pledger and went to book only level means I am probably last, but I would love to know something to effect of we have completed x% or averaging about X a day and expect to be done in Y days. Something specific to look forward to helps to sooth the frustation held by myself and others, espicially when a previous expectation has been set and that date has come and gone.

      I assume it is taking longer than anticipated to make sure everything is going out perfectly, we will no doubt get our e-mails in the next week and packages after that.... :-)

    6. Creator KLM63 on March 31, 2013

      I really wouldn't worry about it to much. The prospect of being able to ship 2000+ packages in the span of 7 days was pretty ambitious. Add on to that trying to confirm addresses at the same time I would say it was virtually unattainable. I have waited this long, my books will be in my hands shortly.

    7. Creator Brett Cruickshank on March 31, 2013

      I've head nothing..

    8. Creator Thlaylie on March 31, 2013

      Happy Easter!
      Also I haven't received an email about this yet as well. As it is now 3/31 a day beyond the deadline I have become concerned.

    9. Creator Gary Seebo on March 31, 2013

      There is a nice picture on COTI of somebody's book, slipcase and such recently arrived. so they ARE being delivered.

    10. Creator David Cheatham on March 30, 2013

      same here theres a lot of these to ship so maybe your just not to me yet but i have not receive a message yet

    11. Creator Michael Smith on March 30, 2013

      Hello! I haven't gotten a message yet either. Please advise.

    12. Creator Bryan Michenfelder on March 29, 2013

      Poor Marc must have terrible cramps in his hands by now from all that signing...

    13. Creator Bryan Michenfelder on March 29, 2013

      Mine has not arrived earlier, assume starting at low end working way up the list. (Just a guess). just good to know the end is in sight!

    14. Creator nyarlathotep111 on March 28, 2013

      Have the messages gone out? I haven't gotten one.

    15. Creator Daniel Delaney on March 27, 2013

      "Verify our range to shipping ping only, please."

    16. Creator David Cheatham on March 27, 2013

      how doth the shipping go?

    17. Creator Allan Carpenter on March 27, 2013

      LOL, Jeremy... Hunt for the Red Traveller Package

    18. Creator Jeremy T. Gibson on March 26, 2013

      I feel a lot like Captain Tupolev right now.

      "My God, these orders are 22 bloody hours old!"

    20. Creator Gary Seebo on March 26, 2013

      Imperial Duke Gary Seebo has responded to the email, did not have paypal account and I wanted some more of the options so more $ for you more bling for me.

    21. Creator Allan Carpenter on March 26, 2013

      ooo, tier based shipping (very wise)... guess I should have spent the extra $ for the Spinward Marches Duke edition :)

    22. Creator Brian Blank on March 26, 2013

      Thanks Marc,

      This has been great to be a part of.

    23. Creator Marc "Traveller" Miller on March 26, 2013

      The direct message will come through the KS system.

    24. Creator Paul S. Enns on March 26, 2013

      I count 1678 rewards pledged that get hard copies of the book. Assuming I can accurately add without pad & pencil. Plus another 206 getting dice/CD-ROMs for a total of 1884 packages going out.

      I don't care when it ships, just that it ships!

    25. Creator Muzzlehead on March 26, 2013

      Stupid question of the day... direct message is via Kickstarter msg service and not our email?

      Oh and Thank You, Thank You, Thank You....... I can not wait to introduce my daughters (9 & 10) to the universe of Traveller!

    26. Creator Byron on March 26, 2013

      Thanks Marc, for ALL your hard work over all these years. Can't wait for the package in the mail! Will be worth the wait for sure.

    27. Creator Chris Marcellus on March 26, 2013

      Well I decided to bite the bullet and register on PayPal :)

    28. Creator Chris Marcellus on March 26, 2013

      What if you don't use Paypal, like myself?

    29. Creator Malor on March 26, 2013

      Woohoo, best news this month!

      Folks, realize that it's probably just a couple of people working on this, and to a quick eyeball of the list, it looks like he's got about 1,500 packages to box up and mail. Even if he can ship 200 packages a day (25 an hour, or just a couple of minutes per box), it would take him a couple of weeks to get them all out the door.

      That is a LOT of work to do, and he may have a regular job, too.

      Thanks, Marc!

    30. Creator Amy Baldwin on March 26, 2013

      Awesome!! The Mail person is going to think I am stalking them by the end of the week, lol.

    31. Creator Ben W Bell on March 26, 2013

      Please tell me international orders are being shipped USPS and not something bad like UPS or FedEx. I hope so.

    32. Creator Paul S. Enns on March 26, 2013

      I'm glad to see that the date given in the Update here is corrected from the email notice I got. Adding time travel into the past would really change Traveller…

    33. Creator Volker Greimann on March 26, 2013

      And now we have to wait until the X-Boat service delivers...

    34. Creator AstralWanderer on March 26, 2013

      Now here is where the superlubricated efficiency of the Third Imperium meets the wayward vagaries of the USPS...

    35. Creator Michael Johnson on March 26, 2013

      Awesome! Thanks Marc!

    36. Creator James C King on March 26, 2013

      Stoked to get this - Thanks Marc!
      Keep the USD$1! It's the least I can offer

    37. Creator Jackson Starky on March 26, 2013

      Benjamin: No, you're understanding it correctly... I think... it's the 25th in North America (at least, it was when this was posted, and still is on the West Coast where I am), and shipping will begin tomorrow, March 26th.

    38. Creator Michael on March 26, 2013

      Thank you for keeping the best sci-fi rpg and setting alive sir!

    39. Creator Benjamin Tolputt on March 26, 2013

      Just to be clear, you will be shipping 24 hours from now? Today is March 26th, in Australia, which means it is at the earliest March 25th elsewhere. I'm happy to be getting the package... just curious whether KickStarter delayed this message or ir I'm understanding it wrong.
