Saturday? I thought they didn’t do Saturday delivery 

 

 

Not sure.  When I checked out the Easy Post link in the email from Reaper it says Saturday but when I check the UPS site it doesn't give a date.  Trying not to get too excited about it

Its still tough at first though too!  I was on right when it launched but I hesitated for like 4-5 minutes (I wasn't quite sure how it worked since it was my first KS) and I ended up as backer #427. 

 

They aren't shipping by backer number, they're shipping by wave + when you locked in your FIRST order. For example, @NomadZekewas backer 1 or 2 (something like that, it was a crazy small number), but since he didn't lock in for several months, he'll be near the end of his wave. (not to pick on Nomad, cuz he's a truly awesome dude, his situation was simply a good example of what I was trying to explain)

 

Huzzah!

My Easy post says Tuesday but no date on the UPS site either. To be Safe, I will still book my flight to CO for Saturday... :ph34r:

It's getting real! Just got a tracking email. My pledge includes the Frost Giant Raiders & Tree of Despair.

No idea what I will paint first, but I'm hoping it's either Narglauth (the Balrog), Mossbeard or the dragon ballerinas. *squee* :winkthumbs:

Yeah I know I was just telling him that even if you are early to the launch that the wave 1 spots go fast.

Found this on the internets (I didn't want to link the article so I just grabbed the important part)

UPS will start making ground deliveries on Saturdays in order to further adapt to the spread of online shopping.

The package delivery service plans to launch the service in April with a goal to cover half the U.S. population by the end of the year, according to the Wall Street Journal.

 

This is from 2017

Hmm, either they're just going by lock-in date and not factoring lock-in time into it, or they might have skipped me. People are getting shipping notifications that locked in hours after me, and I just logged into the pledge manager to confirm that my order definitely hasn't shipped yet. I have everything on the List of Doom, but hopefully that's not an issue already. Finger's crossed that my order hasn't been set aside.

As mentioned up thread, email time stamps may not mean much.  Emails can be delayed by hours or days for a variety of reasons, especially if they're being sent by automated systems. And IIRC, there were some issues with people not getting their confirmation emails for hours after they locked in on that first day in the initial rush.

39.3? That's one heck of an order!

As I said, i kind of took people a little too seriously when they said I would regret what I didn't get.

It’s on the page, should be off to the right and down of the page, may have to click to expand, or click the package details tab. It’s there though:) took me a second to find it too.

Oh yah, and I am sure my UPS person will be quite annoyed with me::o: After all, they just delivered a fifty pound box last night (my table saw), so this box will really be a one two punch haha.

      I haven’t backed any of Bears Heads kickstarters yet, but I’ve been tempted by everyone.
      This is the one that I give in to. 
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/98300108/narthoks-the-excellent
      But hurry! It’s funded with ONLY 3 DAYS LEFT!

       
      As nice as that sculpt is, it’s the sci-fi and bartender versions I’m most excited about. The stretch goals for those have been reached, but only concept drawings are available to show.

       
      I think these are great unique looking eye beasts.
      @TheAuldGrump maybe something you could use for your campaign?

      Here we are in 2015, the 40th Anniversary of Chaosium as a game company. In a few months Glorantha, Greg Stafford's fantasy game world, celebrates its Golden 50th anniversary. We feel the time is right to bring the celebrated classic second edition of RuneQuest back into print. Gaming is going through a bit of an Old School renaissance as of late, and we want RuneQuest to be a part of it. We hope you’ll join in on the fun!
       
      REWARDS:
      The RuneQuest Hardcover Book - is 144 pages. It will have sewn binding. It contains all the 2nd edition text, but with all the errata incorporated where it belongs. Additional material has been added to the appendices at the end. If you want more than one copy of the book, add another $30 for each additional book to the level you are backing.
       
      The RuneQuest Leatherette Hardcover Book - is 144 pages. It is in red leatherette with gold foil stamps on the front and spine. It has a color dust jacket. If you want more than one copy of the book, add another $50 for each additional book to the level you are backing.
       
      The Player Handouts - are 20 pages of reference material for the players to use during character creation and ongoing play.
       
      The GM Screen - is two 11 inch x 17 inch (very close to A3 paper size) color cardstock panels with handy charts and tables from the Rulebook on the GM side, and classic Luise Perrene art on the Player Side.
       
      The Old School RQ Source Pack - consists of four of the earliest RQ1/RQ2 supplements published: Militia & Mercenaries, Scorpionmen & Broos, Trolls & Trollkin and the Balastor's Barracks scenario. Each is about 16 pages in length with a color cardstock cover. If you want more than one copy of this Source Pack, add another $50 for each additional Source Pack to the level you are backing.
       

       
      The Runequest Playtest Manuscript book - is a 250+ page hardcover book created from high resolution scans of the original playtest manuscript. This manuscript is the only known set of playtest notes in existence which were lovingly kept in a binder for the last 40 years. This playtest material was used to create the first edition of RuneQuest. It includes newly written introductory essays by Steve Perrin and Greg Stafford. Here's a few pictures of the original:
       

       
      The 2 volume "Unpublished Scenarios and Source Material" set - is two hardcover books with hundreds of pages of unpublished RuneQuest material by Greg Stafford and other early authors. It includes a fair bit of Sorcery rules for the West, the Howling Tower scenario set in the Upland Marsh, as well as a wide range of other material, esoteric and otherwise. We will describe it in more detail in the comments section and the FAQ. This reward is only available as part of this Kickstarter.
       
       
       
       
       
       
      Into old school RPGs, love Glorantha/Runequest ?
       
      then this one is a great choice
       
      they seem to have fulfilled their last KS OK with minor hiccups

      SITHRAH is a sci-fi about a little girl trying to find her father after their plane crashes in a unfamiliar land. That's when she starts seeing an invisible creature, called SITHRAH, who has been following her around. It's not long until she runs into a young man named Dino who is running from his own ghosts. Together they set out to find her missing father wherever the evidence leads. 
      Book 4 will focus on their journey across The Deep to try to find Light City.
      This series will be 6 books long.
      Sithrah has been a big experiment with the comic format by mixing subtle prose with comic panels. My hope is to blur the lines between comics, children's books, and novels without making it jarring for the reader.
      Most of my inspiration comes from the comic artists of the 90's when I refined my drawing style. Later I became influenced by Miyazaki's movies and storytelling and have been trying to make comics that have a similar depth and feeling.
