Amazing Adventures available in stores?

Post by Venture-Stein »

Im coming to this a little late, so forgive me if this has been covered. Has there been an announced in stores date yet, or projected date yet? Looking forward to the book, any help would be appreciated.

Trolls just posted on facebook yesterday that it should hit stores in a couple of weeks--the pre-order packages are still available at this time.

Can this be ordered from the major distributors yet? I'd love to place an order with my FLGS.

No idea - you'd have to ask the Trolls. I don't have a new PDF. I'll need to ask Steve about that...

The front page art is different and according to Steve in another thread, he added "the errata that appears in the Siege Engine games forums. "

Which thread did Steve post on?

I'm wrong. The only difference between the first and second downloads from TLG are the covers. The 2nd download does NOT have the errata included. I checked my 2nd download with Grey Elf's errata document and known of it seems to have been incorporated into the new download.

I hope Steve adds the errata into the print version at least.

My RPGNow.com download has no cover. Is this a mistake? I feel like I'm missing out on Peter's epic art. :(

Odd. I know that Peter was checking on the errata yesterday because I was talking to him while he was doing it.

The 2nd download email I got came on Monday, so that would be before Peter was doing the errata then. Steve needs to release the pdf a third time so we can get the corrected copy.

I didn't check everything. But none of the Firearms Errata for pg 39 was in the 2nd download. Nor was the Exploding and Imploding Dice pg 143 corrected. Nor Types of Saving throws pg 143. Nor is Movement in the Combat Round pg 149.

I could check for more, but my point is made. The errata wasn't corrected in the 2nd download.

Sorry if I came across as challenging you--not my intent. It's just strange that it wasn't included. I do know that Pete got it all in there, and it should be incorporated into the print version, so I presume the PDF will also be updated.

Oh I didnt' feel challenged so no worries. Just wanted to let you know that the link I got for the 2nd download, was for a pdf that did not have all the corrections. Why that is I don't know. But I'd love to be able to download a 3rd time to actually get the corrected version. Will that happen do you know?

Sorry, all of that is on the Trolls' end--I have nothing at all to do with the production process :(

Just for my own edification, is AA now out in the stores?
I love looking through the pdf but always prefer to have a copy to hold in my hands.

Not so far as I know. I believe the Trolls said it was going to press last week (though I could be in error about that).

I'm still kicking myself for not picking up a copy at GenCon from the TLG booth. I held off since I have the whole kickstarter thing coming and figured it was going to be done soon, but I would have enjoyed reading AA for the past 6 weeks a lot more with a paper copy instead of a PDF.

Oh, well. Live and learn. :D

Yeah I got my PDF, But I will not be happy till I got the actual book in my hand.
I just cant run the game till I got a book for my players to thumb through. I dont think passing my kindle around is going to cut it.

Amazing Adventures shipped to distributors yesterday. So it should be available in stores in a week or two. I'm not sure if the screens and adventure are out to distributors as well, but if they're not yet I presume they will be very soon (they are done; I know that much).

Remember to go to your FLGS and ask them to stock it!!!

Just preordered my copy.
The cashier estimated that it would be two to three weeks before it came in.

I can understand a delay if you just ordered it. But I ordered months ago. I would expect my preorder would ship before it lands in my local FLGS!
