Here we go! Twitch just went live and they are up to 550 shipments.

...in the last 24 hours. It’s a rolling number. 


So they did roughly 550 orders in the first 24 hours. Someone on discord, who is wave 2, got his shipping notification. That means roughly half of Wave 1 has had their shipments delayed.

I get the distinct impression that Reaper changed their mind about "whatever hub is ready first will start shipping" and "hubs will only start shipping when everything is received" when it appeared that both the AU and UK hubs would be shipping first........

Suddenly news on the AU and UK hubs went quiet and disappeared into limbo and then the US hub miraculously starts shipping even though stuff is not all there.

 

If Reaper had said from the beginning that nothing would ship until the US hub was ready then I'd be fair enough......as it is I feel this is a joke, deliberately holding up other countries deliveries just because some americans might complain about not being first in line.

 

Unless there's been a serious change in philosophy at Reaper this is unlikely. In previous Kickstarter fulfillments they've gone as far as shipping all RoW orders before all stateside orders just to give them a headstart on shipping. I'd guess there's something more to it than these theoretical distinctly American fragile fee-fees.

I just hope everyone stays well hydrated and takes proper rests. On twitch yesterday they said the warehouse doesn't have AC, which sounds terrible in the Texan heat right now ...

The shipping contracts with UPS had to start before July, or be renegotiated. Ed mentioned it in one of the streams last week (I think the Q&A stream). I highly doubt this was some underhanded means of ensuring Americans got their stuff first. 

 

I think Reaper just honestly thought things wouldn’t be held up in shipping as long as they’ve been. 

This is crucial to remember. I work for a larger company than Reaper and dealing with vendors is a PITA. I'm wave 1 ghost ship and bummed to have to wait. BUT at a certain point Reapers great customer service has to give way basic business realities.

This just shows me how little waves count. 
Of course as an Australian I always knew that.

Yeah... the Kickstarter went live almost two years ago now.  It's amazing how much emphasis people put on waves, when it's really probably just a matter of a couple days.

I figured there was a reasonable explanation.

It's been helpful to see this much activity on this chat again now that the shipping has started.  Nice to know some already have tracking, others are watching and posting updates, and overall it's enthused again.  

 

For anyone interested, there's a separate post for anyone interested in doing group painting once we all have our b5 stock.  Nice way to keep some of us motivated to chew through some of these minis we'll all be hoarding shortly.

As a wave 22 backer last time, it's not easy to sit and wait while you see (what feels like) everyone else getting their stuff,

I can't recall if I was delayed last time or not.  I think I was?  It feels as though I'm "tail end charlie" on a LOT of Kickstarters.  All the European ones I'm in right now are finishing shipping to EU/England and now getting around to the US side.  In the past, if I've had one or two items, the KS ships the big orders first. If I order a large variety of stuff, they ship the small orders first.  Sigh...

Hmmm. So I am wave 1. Backer 614. I don’t have any of the items on the delay list… but have not received tracking… but a wave 2 has? That’s not worrying at all…

      Another “large collection of miniatures” kickstarters, reminiscent of the recent Blacklist Games Fantasy kickstarters.

      I am tempted, even though it covers a lot of things we already have.

      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. 👀
