Re: Second Edition AS&SH Hardbacks Have Arrived!

I received my book, shirt, and maps today.  The book is a lovely beast!

Unfortunately, the [long string of extremely strong expletives deleted] in the postal service badly mangled the map container, damaging both of my maps.  They are in one piece, but crinkled and creased to a painful (for me) degree.  Curse those fiends!  Curse them, I say!

Jeff may have insured the shipments, so don't throw away the packaging yet!

I should have said I've contacted Jeff about it with lots of pictures.  He's on the case. 

Thanks for the reminder to preserve the evidence!

Re: Second Edition AS&SH Hardbacks Have Arrived!

I am glad everyone is receiving their stuff. I am waiting excitedly to get my map. My sister is a framer and I have her on standby to take care of it for me.

Re: Second Edition AS&SH Hardbacks Have Arrived!

Got my books and canvas map today! Pictures don't do the book or map justice. Also, the book is frigging huge - easily twice as thick as the DMG. Fantastic job, Jeff and Dave! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/love.png

Re: Second Edition AS&SH Hardbacks Have Arrived!

Got my book and shirt in yesterday, damn this sucker is huge! Still waiting on the canvas map.

Re: Second Edition AS&SH Hardbacks Have Arrived!

I'm mailing the canvas maps separately, and they are a little behind the books right now. Glad to hear folks are receiving their books and that the first impression is decent. Take some pics and share, if you please. It helps maintain that good buzz. Cheers!

Re: Second Edition AS&SH Hardbacks Have Arrived!

Book arrived safely here in Blighty today; what a thing of beauty!  It's HUGE.  The nice smooth matt finish to the cover is a really nice touch and the colour in the interior artwork has come out very well.  A very happy bunny here....

Re: Second Edition AS&SH Hardbacks Have Arrived!

All these pictures look so good. Can't wait to lay hands on mine!

Re: Second Edition AS&SH Hardbacks Have Arrived!

Backer number 236 is really hurting for these books, man, I'm jonesing!

Edit: By the way, will there be a chance to buy one of the fancy maps? I didn't leap on the map and now I regret it. A lot.

Re: Second Edition AS&SH Hardbacks Have Arrived!

Man...this book is HUGE.

Glad to be able to thumb through it.

Now waiting for the unfolded map (not canvas).

Beautiful work on the book. Love it's look and feel.


What? Me worry?

Re: Second Edition AS&SH Hardbacks Have Arrived!

Obviously the backers get first priority, but is there any estimate as to when pre-orders will start shipping?

I'm estimating about three weeks, jcstephens.

Re: Second Edition AS&SH Hardbacks Have Arrived!

Backer #236 received an email today with a tracking number and can now breathe a little easier. Hoping the same message soon finds its way to all others!

Re: Second Edition AS&SH Hardbacks Have Arrived!

Man, I hope you've got some help with the shipments, Jeff. I can't imagine putting all of this together and then filling what's probably well in to the quadruple digits worth of orders all by myself... yikes! Shoot, if I still lived on the east coast I'd offer to drive up and help. It's got to be overwhelming!
