Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

Po box was listed as an issue for that?

I switched away from my FlexDelivery address the instant they mentioned UPS was the carrier.

 

Biggest annoyance for me is now I'll just get a notice card instead of a package, and it'll take 2-4 weeks to get said package through USPS, instead of less than a week and it actually being delivered to my door.  I currently have three packages waiting for me at the post office because of a lazy CanadaPost driver that we've put in a lot of complaints about regarding non-delivery over the past two and a half years (probably easily over 125 by now), and CanadaPost has done ~nothing~ about it.  Those packages are waiting because with current heat wave going out after 9am is not advisable unless necessary.

Well, guess I won't be able to write up a guide using UPS, as they shipped mine USPS for some strange reason.  Guess I'll get my package in two weeks to a month instead of a few days, but it's shipped.

 

For those curious, I'm wave 9.

 

Damn, and here was me at wave 12 thinking "a wave a day puts me at nearly two weeks out"! But I suppose I do have the runes and dragonfolk, so I suspect I am much further down the list than it seems at the moment.

 

.... I wonder what happens if they run out of shippable orders?

Discord is saying they heard regular pirate ship orders are now shipping tomorrow. Here’s to another hopeful day of waiting.

 

This information regarding the regular pirate ships beginning to ship tomorrow came from Justin on the most recent fulfillment stream. It is subject to change, as is everything regarding so many logistics and moving parts, but that is the most up to date expectation.

It was said that "smaller" orders would be going USPS.  Don't know what the cut off on that is. Also PO boxes as already mentioned.

I'm going to tongue in cheek say....  Like any other shipping department, that sounds like a great time for beer and BBQ!

So, do we know if the container's waiting for a berth,  on the train yet, or sitting in Customs purgatory? I don't get the chance to watch the Q&As really

 

The official information that we have for the final container is that it is "not here", if that changes there will be much rejoicing all around!

We know it's not held up in Customs, and not much else. 

 

It will get here when it gets here, and meanwhile there's certainly plenty of other pledges to ship.

To my knowledge, cold is not a problem for them, at least not at any range a normal storage unit would be in.

In my experience, freezing them over night, then dropping them on a hard tile floor while removing them from said freezer can lead to damaging your Bones mini.  ::(:

Three guesses as to how I know that, and the first two guesses don't count.

Dang, you're so hurting for space you're storing your bones in the freezer?! Your wife is a lot more understanding than mine.

yes, yes , i know everyone, we WILL get our things eventually

 

yes yes i know, tehy have plenty to ship for other people and i shouldn't feel envious and jealous that i'm being skipped

 

yes yes, theyre trying

 

yes yes be patient

 

doesn't mean i can't be disappointed and sad taht a single item on a missing container that could be days, weeks, or months away (or lost at the bottom of the sea), is holding up the rest of my goodies that i've waited so long for lol

 

allow me my disappointment 😛

I don't know where you got those UPS Canadian brokerage rates from, but here is what they put on their website, and what I usually see them charge.

 

https://www.ups.com/ca/en/shipping/zones-and-rates/customs-clearance.page

 

Hate them so much. Rather deal with USPS any day.

They're UPS's retail rates. Reaper's rates are something that they've negotiated with UPS for these shipments.

The container is already several weeks late.  We know that customs has been waived but no additional information.  I do not have any insider info, but based on other shipping information from the company I work at, it is probably another month away.  Those containers are piled up because their is also a trucking and rail shortage.  Depending on how big the queue is, it could be a month or more before it is shipped.  

 

At this point, nothing we can do but wait.  I am guessing end of July the earliest we see that container.

My Canadian order is set to ship right away. I'm being sent my parcel via mail, not courier, so I'm not expecting it until August. Weird, since I changed my address to the office, but maybe they printed the label before I did that. My house address is rural, so couriers won't deliver.

      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. 👀
