Either way (and I'm pushing for the cloud thing to happen Real Soon Now) I'd druther use B&N's memory than my own. I'm ruthless that way, and you'd be pretty rotten without Ruth too.

It's available on BN http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/castles ... c+monsters

I'm sure they will send to you post haste.
hmmm I never got an email from these people! They normally alert me when a title goes live.

But thanks for the heads up! :lol:

:lol: Okay, that question is much more relevant. I had intended on doing it all at once, books, shirts, etc just to keep things orderly. But I think I may start sending out next week.

Thanks!

Isn't "orderly" the opposite of the average troll's alignment?

You know, on Wednesday we do a product meeting and we've added TC to it as well. So this past Wednesday we were sitting around, piles of hamburgers, smoking with some guiness, coke and dr. pepper. We'd been arguing for about an hour and Mcbain said something like "We have to bring our A Game!" and I gestured to the table and ssaid..."McBain, this is our A Game!" :lol: :lol:

Question on the pdf here and with all orders not through drive-thru/rpgnow. When there is an update, as we've seen on many recently, will there be ways to get them? I'm not sure how the kickstarter and then the ones straight through TLG webstore work. It sure is nice to get that email with a free update when good stuff is fixed or added to a product.

Any updates on the package? The original estimated release date is three months past.

I heard from the printer today, they are sitting on the loading dock waiting shipping. So my best guess is they will be on the trucks tomorrow. Its a two day ship here, so Monday. Of course we still have to get the books for the 100.00 pre-order packages signed but we will have them all in hand soon.

Thanks,
Steve

This book would have sold very well at GaryCon. Either way, I'm hopeful we'll have it before DieCon in June. IF it doesn't sell out before that time. ;-)

Were the ones for the $25 and above packages already signed by Kim? Or those have to go out also?

No, those are all coming from the same source, so he has to sign them all. He'll be tired of his own name very soon! haha

If you ordered a signed or personalized copy off Kickstarter, I touched your book this weekend. When I started signing, my name was "Kim Hartsfield". When I was done it was "Km Htld" You can judge where you were in the signing line by how I spell my name.

But in all seriousness, thanks to everyone that opted for this. It was a pleasure signing them. I tried to make each personalization personal. :)

There are a bunch of old-timey comics that have equally disturbing scenes. Don't know where to find them, unless your willing to weed through these images. So instead I present to you, Superman is a dick.

Glad I don't work there....

I was going to ask, "where do you find this stuff," then I remembered the internet is involved.
Ah, the internet.

Got my hardcopy of CM today! WOOT! and the neato silver TLG coins. They're pretty nifty looking.
The Hardback book looks very very good!
