I expect that the "Canadian Issue" is what they were sorting out that has kept them from giving an update.  What was in the last update was the plan then, but I suspect that a better option has become available.

So folks on KS are saying that in UPS it is showing as shipping from Ontario (the Canadian one).  If so it is a huge benefit to us Canadians who've been watching our dollar drop continually against the US dollar and dreading the tax bill on our silly big orders.  34 lbs of plastic minis....oh my....

Canada is only 932 backers, so that's only a couple of hours for them to pull everything, if they are getting anywhere near their rate from last time.

 

 

From the UPS Trade Direct Cross Border Page:

FEATURES

  • Consolidated customs clearance

 

So yeah, I'm guessing UPS is bringing them over in bulk, possibly into one of our FTZs and then will distribute them locally within Canada. I don't have the details as I won't get a notice like that; I used my USPS P.O. Box for this specifically so that I wouldn't have to deal with UPS bringing anything over the border for me.

Also got my shipping notice several hours ago. 28.2 lbs weight.

 

Like everyone else, I am curious at how everything will unfold. And I have my own reasons to wonder how it will change.

 

- Bones 1: shipped at home address

- Bones 2: shipped at co-pledger's work address.

- Bones 3: shipped to my Canada P.O. address.

Mostly people are ticked that Reaper promised an update and then didn't send one out.  Which, when there is evidence in the wild that they are past the point of the promised update and haven't sent it, does legitimately irritate the people with "poor communication" pet peeves.  I don't care what they are doing, but I'd like to know what it is. 

I thought updates came out on Fridays? (It's not Friday yet.) This sounds like people complaining that Reaper is getting a move on with shipping :huh: and maybe is bit ahead of where Reaper expected to be?

The go off the first date.  I know that was mentioned in one of the updates but I don't know which it was off the top of my head.

That was in Update #99, under the "Shipping Orders" section of that update.

 

Huzzah!

The next update is supposed to happen before they start Zone 3 shipping with no particular date attached. The one after that is supposed to be when shipping is complete. There are no more planned Friday updates.

I read the update as being when shipping was starting in full, not when they were sending out those test shipments. I think test shipments are a good sign.

After we have sent the Zone 2 rewards, we will reset, and begin Zone 3 (the Americas). 

We will have another Update after we're done with Zone 2 and we are about to begin Zone 3.

 

Nothing there about test shipments

Eh, I'll be glad to get the Bones but I'm used to the wait at this point. Reaper will get them to me as fast as they can I'm confident and that's good enough for me.

That was in Update #99:

"In the past, we have taken the first day to fine-tune the system, running a dozen orders, then stopping, setting things up more effectively, and continuing for maybe a hundred more before optimizing the workflow further. So typically the first day's output is relatively small, but those first coupled hundred orders are pivotal in helping us reach our goal of 1,000+ orders per subsequent day.

 

At the end of that first day, we will send out another Update, to share progress and make our last minute "update your addresses" plea. Seriously, you'd be surprised how many times in the past we've had additional delays caused by backers not having up-to-date addresses, so this is very important to us."

 

Huzzah!

....Oh gosh, I just realized I need to get probably two more tool boxes to store all my new Bones in. This is going to throw off my whole sorting system! D: /drama

      About this project
       
       
       
      Welcome to the Infinity RPG Kickstarter, help us fund an RPG based on the massive Infinity skirmish miniatures game!

      The Infinity universe was launched by Corvus Belli as a hugely-popular tabletop skirmish game in which sci-fi themed miniatures simulated futuristic battles across the alien battlefronts of Paradiso and the internecine conflicts of the Human Sphere. Before there was a skirmish game, though, there was an RPG: Infinity started life as a homemade RPG setting for the early roleplaying adventures of Corvus Belli founders Alberto, Carlos, Fernando, and Gutier. We've been playtesting the Infinity RPG with hundreds of people for the last 9 months, working hard to recapture the excitement of those first sessions and ensure that the feel of the Infinity universe will be captured in your own campaign!
      This Kickstarter has funded the production of a beautiful full colour, hardback 368 page core rulebook for the roleplaying game. It will be sent out in PDF in December and the printed books in February 2016. We are also going to fund Faction supplements, campaign, amazing geomorphic tiles, custom dice, accessories, upgrades to increase the content in certain books and much more.

      In the twisted jungles of Paradiso, humanity fights for its survival. The fierce, alien warriors of the Combined Army have poured through the Acheron Gate, descending upon the emerald jungles of the newest colonial world in a seemingly unstoppable torrent. The bestial Morat pound the Paradiso Front, where brave men and women fight ceaselessly to maintain a desperate defensive line which the sly Shasvastii penetrate with devastating ease. In the star-swept skies above, the collected might of humanity’s armadas maintain a life-or-death blockade to cut off an endless horde of alien reinforcements. And if any of humanity’s fractious forces should falter, then all may be lost…
      But beyond that terrifying holding action, the intrigues and adventures of the Human Sphere spin on. Space pirates cruise through the shattered planetoids of Human Edge. Scientist adventurers delve the oceans of Varuna. Merchant guilds scheme amidst the scourging sands of Bourak. From Yutang, the Emperor gazes forth from an uneasy throne. Titanic war machines stride across the icy plains of Svalarheima. Byzantine hypercorps struggle for dominance amidst the chrome towers of Neoterra.
      For the last ten years, players have tested their mettle upon the battlefields of the Human Sphere in Corvus Belli’s hugely-popular Infinity skirmish game. Now you can expand your adventures, diving deep into the amazing, never-before-seen depths of the Infinity universe with the ultimate science fiction roleplaying game.

      Play with the full dynamic 2d20 game system featuring:
      Cinematic action driven by the twin engines of Heat and Momentum The triple battlefields of Warfare, Infowar, and Psywar A multifaceted Zones system which brings the game world to life All New Artwork of the Infinity universe commissioned by Modiphius and Corvus Belli Find out more about the 2d20 System further down the page Explore the definitive guide to the Infinity universe with: A complete Chronology of the Human Sphere detailing centuries of bloodshed The culture, history, and intrigue of seven powerful factions Gazetteers for all twelve planets of the Human Sphere, including beautiful, full-color maps Leap into your character by: Forging your identity with an immersive Lifepath character creation system Fighting for your faction with the fractious, innovative Wilderness of Mirrors scenario design system Facing dozens of fearsome, ready-to-play adversaries who stand between you and your destiny! A 368 page book packed with everything you need to roleplay in the Human Sphere and beyond!
      Here are our popular Pledge Levels, we'll be adding more as they are unlocked. Note: There will be more Bostria Art Pledges for the Core and Supplements unlocked, we'll send an update before they are so you have a chance to grab one
