Got mine yesterday, too! My group is almost halfway through Ghost Ship already, so that PDF has been getting plenty of use, but it's great to have the physical modules. I love reading modules. I read the other two last night while the baseball was on. Great work, you guys. Really stellar.

The corners of all three of mine got kind of banged up in the shipping, curse the postal gods. But as we always say around the table, magic items are for using. And these will get used! Can't wait until the PCs are up to tackling the other two adventures. If only they would stop dying . . .

Wow, that's the first I've heard of that! Those boxes are pretty sturdy, so I'm surprised. Maybe they found out you're a Yankees fan? 
 

Haters gonna hate.

Et tu, USPS?

Out of curiosity, are the bookmarks inside the shrinkwrapped modules?

That's right, Steve.

 

What an ingenious way to counter after-market shrinkers!  Be honest: the Acaeum put you up to this, didn't they?

Ghul-- exactly what kind of paper is that?  I'd like to buy by the reem if possible.

Ha ha! It is #60 paper, I believe.

That's where the similarity ends.....or that would have been strange!

And sweat at the daily round,
While in my soul forever
The drums of Pictdom sound?”

My copies arrived the other day (well protected). Very pleased as a backer - very pleased. Love the covers.

I'm not sure if I'm getting a defensive, annoyed, or proud vibe off of that response. :-)


What? Me worry?

Re: HYPERBOREA ADVENTURE THREE-PACK KICKSTARTER IS NOW LIVE!

These PDF's are wonderful. A big thank you to everyone involved and can't wait to get the real Mccoy's but am now conflicted if I should get play copies too. Oh, the decisions!

Haha! None of the above. It is a simple copy and paste from my invoice.

Yes.

And if anything in Beneath the Comet offends you, you should buy at least a dozen copies and burn them.

Only a dozen?  That's a pitiful expression of contempt.  True outrage demands a gross, minimum, otherwise you're not really doing anything to keep others from using such clap-trap.

You're hardcore, friend.  But it's hard to argue with your numbers.
