I typically prefer street level to 4 color, so I'm still pumped.

Are we still looking at a first of August release?

Posted this in an other forum as well, but when I went to pre-order the PDF/ePUB, it wants to charge me $5 or so for shipping and handling. :shock:

No idea on that--that's all up to Steve.

Frost, I'd drop the Trolls an e-mail about the PDF ordering issue. I'm sure it's a glitch that's fixed easy enough but they'll see the problem faster via e-mail than they will here on the forums.

Hey! I ordered the $70 pulp-pak :D I own and have played many pulp games over the years (probably my favorite genre). Howz about showing us a few more teasers?

Frost ~ have you had any response about this? As I'm in the UK it keeps trying to charge me over $15 for postage! I've sent emails but to no avail as yet... :cry:

Thanks for the swift reply! However, the system is still saying it will charge me $25+ for the pdf.....so guess not fixed completely. Will see if I get a reply to messages.

Cheers

If you're looking for a cool book to go along with Amazing Adventures, I highly reccommend Pulp Hero from Hero Games. It was released in 2005, and won a silver Ennie at GenCon. It's a great resource.

Is there still time to pre-order this one, and when will the PDF be shipping?

According to the most recent press release from Troll Lord, AA will ship next week. As for the PDF I'm not sure. They'll have to answer that one.

Well, they answered that; it's going out today. But I still can't buy the PDF without paying shipping. Argh. I've tweeted them, Facebook'd them and emailed them, so hopefully I get a response soon.

Worked it out so I paid a $0.40 shipping fee. Now I'm just happily waiting for a PDF.

OK, so I still can't appear to get the PDF without over $15 additional "postage" (no replies to the various messages, but not a huge PDF fan anyway) and being v cash strapped I'm going to have to wait until the printed version makes it to the UK (so I can buy from my local shop without the shipping costs) ~ so any quick reviews, views or opinions from you lucky guys/ gals who managed to get the PDF (in a bundle or with lower shipping :D)
