Will you exclude Europeans again?


Great question!

Despite the difficulties and increasing costs of international shipping, my understanding is that this one WILL be shipped globally!

What are the rough shipping costs to Australia for the book?


Good question! 


The international shipping costs for bulk containers are wildly unstable right now. This is why we are using a pledge manager. 


If it helps, here's what the Shipping section of the Kickstarter says:




The books, PDF, and VTTs will all release in late October per the current schedule. Given how far along we are with design, development, editing, and art, this is a reasonable schedule.


At the same time, we're going to take a serious risk with international shipping for this project. Despite the difficulties we encountered getting Tome of Beasts 2 to overseas backers in a timely way and the increasing costs of international shipping, we're offering the printed books as part of the Kickstarter globally. Shipping costs will be calculated separately from the Kickstarter itself and charged in a pledge manager. 

This project will use bulk shipments to Canada, the EU, the UK, and Australia to attempt to reduce shipping costs. Given the confusion around VAT in the EU and UK shipments right now, this is a serious risk. Overseas backers may be required to pay VAT or Customs fees, but the cost of postage itself is usually lower using bulk shipping. This form of shipping means overseas packages will arrive a month or two later than US shipments.
