True that. Are you a kickstarter backer, or just consumer? I just want to purchase, but haven't been able to figure out if kick starters have gotten their print copies. Kick starters go first, appropriately, but I'm anxious to get my hands on Germania in particular.

It's not even for gaming (yet), I'm writing some fiction about Germanic barbarian adventurers in Roman Empire, and while there's boatloads of Celtic and Viking stuff game resources, can't find any classic German stuff...

No, we backers have yet to receive our copies.
Since its 20,000 I suggest "Captain Nemo" as his title. Beyond the obvious connection, he is one who sails on his own terms and ignores those he doesn't agree with...confident in his journey and goals.

I thought these Codex's went to print back in FEB, or even before. I am also eagerly awaiting the print copy of Codex Germania.

Yeah, my understanding was these started shipping a good while ago. My understanding was they would start shipping after Gary Con. Strange that I haven't seen any posts anywhere about receiving them. Then again, I haven't seen the Trolls post anywhere about the status of shipping them. Which they usually do. I've gotten my Bergholt material.

I got my mugs and mini's from the kickstarter yesterday, but no books. I had thought they were delayed because of the mugs being shipped to California.

Yeah, I tagged both Tim and Steve in the G+ community 3 days ago for an update, nothing. Just tagged them again, asking for an update, yet again.

I got all my books yesterday, they look great. Pretty dense, text-wise, light on illustrations. Glossy paper.

I am eagerly awaiting the time to work on the Asian set now (once the Egyptian and Mesopotamian books are written) due to my recent DNA results. There had always been stories about my 'Korean heritage', etc from my Dad's side of the family and I never believed it and it is now scientifically backed up, by four different companies. This helped me not only prove that, but find my lost family members and link up to my East Asian side a little. I discovered who my Korean Great Grandfather was, when he came over, etc to my fascination.

So...thirty years spent becoming a Celtic scholar only to find out that I am kind of an Asian-American is weird. I will have a very personal stake in the upcoming books (as my ancestry has Japanese, Mongolian and some Early Chinese as well, with some other Steppe/Altaic peoples in half of my Haplogroup DNA). My European side is there alright but not as...much as I would like to think it was, and not from the 'Celtic' regions either. How odd, all of it! Things have been strange lately....

I'd be willing to do a read-through of any of the East Asian stuff before publication if you're interested. As I noted in one of my posts, I'm a Professor of East Asian history and I've published several books and articles on historical topics, mostly military history. But you pick up a fair degree of folklore and mythology in the process. And my spouse is Chinese and we travel back to Asia every year. So it would be fun to see things as they're unfolding and lend a hand, but only if you're interested.
