Would really like to know if the UK warehouse got their container today. I guess it won't get it's own update, but maybe someone will drop the info in one of the streams.

Moments ago, Reaper Jon stated on discord that the UK container has arrived in port. That still leaves delivery, sorting, etc., which could still take some time.

That sounds about right. Maybe Friday

Unless there's some other arrangement that we're not aware of, such as an agreement about who is permitted to post updates on Bones 5

I of course have other thoughts that should not be shared in polite or impolite company 

Also keep in mind that 14/6 is a public holiday in most Australian states (except WA, I think), so they won't be shipping until at least the 15th.

Soft date was defined in the update as 'week beginning', but yes, they won't be shipping until at least Tuesday.

Per tonight’s Reaper Live, turns out Reaper is waiting on 2 containers in the USA. One should be in the hands of their agent (in Texas?) on Saturday. The other is still in LA, snagged for inspection. This type of snag, on previous shipments, has gone as fast as 2 days, or in the case of Bones 4, as long as 3 weeks (it happened to the last Bones 4 container).


I might have backwards which container is snagged. I vaguely recall something being said that they may be able to get “deep enough” on the inspection with the first container, so the second won’t get held up, too. That makes me think the inspection is actually happening in TX with the first container. 
 

Regardless, one is currently scheduled for inspection, one should be in TX currently, and another is still in LA at this point.

Thanks for the continuous updates, ksb! It's highly appreciated, as I usually don't get to watch Reaper Live. 😄

 

Personally, I don't really mind waiting, but I understand others want to get their hands on their Bones. Personally though, I still have more than enough to keep me occupied, so I'm in no rush. 😉

I'm thinking early to mid July at this point.  Once that container gets to Denton things will start moving real fast.  I hope the employees get the Independence Day weekend off to relax.

Eh at least it is happening. We'll get the loot soon.

Pretty much my stance on it.  So long as I get it before October, I'm good. ^_^

Everything shipping late is tradition by now... 

 

This time seems like it is mostly on the global shipping situation though, not on production. Impressive, considering production could've gotten hit during the pandemic too, but they got through that part. Shipping is slowed down on everything, not just this. The containers are in high demand, and there aren't enough moving, or at least not enough flow of them through ports, while ports have extra safety measures in place.

 

Even if this one is later than the others, I am not inclined to be annoyed by the timing overall.

 

Heck, if it delays long enough I may feel like it was worth while again. Been gaming online so long now that the stuff coming seems kinda.... redundant. But if it goes a bit later, we may be in-person again and the figures will be needed!

To be clear, I'm not saying this is anyone's fault or me being disappointed in reaper.  I'm merely trying to keep enthused about getting that big ol box of goodness.   

 

... that and my optimism that it could still be quicker than what i really feel could be the case.

      Pixies, Wyrms, Demonicity – Three Mini Role-Playing Games
       
      Three ready-for-adventure mini-game boxed sets for your RPG game night, featuring the Tri-Stat System used in BESM Fourth Edition RPG.
       

       
      If you're looking for role-playing games that are concise enough to crack open and start playing right away, yet sufficiently robust and evocative to support longer campaign play as well, you've come to the right place.
       
       
      Welcome to the Kickstarter for the first three Tri-Stat System Mini-Game Boxed Sets – a new line of compact and complete role-playing adventure games that are compatible with Dyskami Publishing's flagship BESM Fourth Edition anime and manga RPG. Tri-Stat System creator Mark MacKinnon has distilled and customised the complete system into distinct streamlined versions for each of the three adventure games – targeting their specific genres and background settings in easy-to-understand boxed sets.
       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – it's time for your next great role-playing adventure!
       

       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – These boxed set RPGs are games of adventure, exploration, battle, heroism, romance, and imagination. Yet unlike in a traditional board game, the possibilities for exploration and action in these role-playing game are endless.
       
      Each of the three role-playing adventure games contains the following components:
       
      a 32-page full-colour rulebook that gives your group everything you need to play, with sections on character abilities, magical spells/paranormal powers, weapons and equipment, enemy encounters, items and equipment, and guidelines for integrating the Tri-Stat System game with the compatible BESM Fourth Edition RPG
      6 brief story scenarios so you can start playing adventures right away
      6 pre-generated player character sheet handouts, with game stats and illustration
      4 custom-etched dice specific to that boxed set
       
      You can pledge for one, two, or all three of these boxed sets during the Kickstarter.
       
      ...
       
      I know know nothing about these creators or the system, but I decided to back for Pixies entirely because of that picture of the corgi. 👀
