Re: Second Edition AS&SH Hardbacks Have Arrived!

Congratulations bat!  Unfortunately lucky number 565 still seems forever away...

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!

I have a small amount of help from family, but largely the burden falls on my shoulders. I've worked out a system that is efficient, but one never knows when a wrench will be thrown in the middle of the effort, such as a massive power outage here in Southern NH after heavy winds knocked down trees all about. Of course, I have my phone's hotspot to do light internet work. Trust me, I want to get every book into the hands of all the fine folks who supported this effort. Thanks for the kind thoughts, foxroe!

Re: Second Edition AS&SH Hardbacks Have Arrived!

Have faith, 1970! And be prepared. I thought the mailman was joking as he staggered up with my two books. These are mammoth tomes! Small pets and children would be crushed under the weight of one of these!

Re: Second Edition AS&SH Hardbacks Have Arrived!

Received my copy (safe and sound) yesterday (#143) ... didn't get to open the box myself though.... the wife thought her new boots had arrived   ... because, you know, heavy large box (lol!) ... She was quite surprised to find a arcane tome instead (her comment to me "geez, that's a big book!") ... I already posted this pic on the G+ page, but here again is my game bag, packed and ready to roll! .... Thank Jeff! The book is everything (and more!) that I'd hoped for.http://i68.tinypic.com/kcjcsm.jpg

That looks like a good way to throw your back out, measuredrums.

Re: Second Edition AS&SH Hardbacks Have Arrived!

That's an awesome pic measuredrums!  I love seeing stuff like that.  Still, I have to agree with bat: you're in hernia country there if you're not careful.  Remember to lift with your legs!

Re: Second Edition AS&SH Hardbacks Have Arrived!

I've had mine for a week or so now. Love it. Can't stop flipping through its juicy goodness. Can't wait to wow my players when they see it!

Really liking this. The built in bookmarks are a nice touch. Quality product all the way.

Re: Second Edition AS&SH Hardbacks Have Arrived!

Came in and shoved everything else off of the table. I thought it was going to be a digest sized hardback. I have no idea why I thought that, except for my own ignorance. Got them in the mail, and was very impressed by the size. Extraordinarily impressed with the graphic design! Wow!

Re: Second Edition AS&SH Hardbacks Have Arrived!

The Mighty Tome arrived on these shores last week and was hastened without delay to my abode. Truly, a gorgeous book. The lay-out and writing are top notch. I look forward to perusing it's pages.

Cheers Jeff!  #229

Jeff, can you tell us where you are in the order of shipping backer copies?

Tomas -- More than halfway, Tomas. I looked at your order, and I would estimate being about 7-10 days away from sending yours. Cheers!


All -- Thank you for the kind words in this thread! I'm reading them all, but I've been remiss in responding. I do appreciate the posts! Thank you, kind fellows.

Re: Second Edition AS&SH Hardbacks Have Arrived!

Aw nuts. I was hoping to have it in hand when I left for the family vacation.

Just goes to show you how much I can't wait to have the final book! I showed my kid the pdf and he's excited to read the book as well and try playing in Hyperborea. You've got a future customer in him.

Got mine at the end of last week - it looks great!  I've been having fun reading though it.

Re: Second Edition AS&SH Hardbacks Have Arrived!

I received my book today. Congratulations are in order for you Jeff. It has been a long time since I first played your system at FalCon in 2010. The work you have done to get from there to here is phenomenal. Congratulations on an amazing product.
