I just noticed that they have updated all the Lance / Star / Comstar II packs to reflect the changes as a result of the survey.

Less info that what I was hoping to hear...oh well, still 10 days to go.

They've said again today, officially, that they are chasing up an Australian fulfilment centre...hopefully one gets announced very soon...

Logistics Update

QUOTE
We have a logistics partner!

Whew! We couldn't agree more with any of you saying, "It's about time!" Not that we doubted we'd get one, but we wanted to share the data before the end of the Kickstarter Campaign. And now we can.

We met with Quartermaster Logistics at GenCon. We knew we'd need a dedicated logistics service for this campaign, and they came highly recommended by several of our friends in the industry. It was a great meeting. They came with solutions to problems we didn't know we even had yet. So, here are some points I can share:

1. They are going through our sku list right now. It's a long one! They will have rough shipping estimates within the next 48-72 hours. It's taking extra time because of the size and they want to get it right. We are excited to see the results as well!

2. QM is EU-friendly, CA-friendly, UK-friendly, AUS-friendly, Asia-friendly, China-friendly, and of course US friendly. This means that they will freight the material in, and then break it into individual shipments within these areas so that you only pay "local" shipping. Sorry: there are still no better options for Russia, South America, Africa, New Zealand, and some other small countries. But they will use the best "lane" possible to keep shipping costs as low as they can!

3. QM can support multiple wave and optional wave shipments. Note: we may not be able to offer optional-wave, but enough of you have asked that we are looking into it. Basically, you can opt for a single shipment at the very end of the production calendar, which might save you around $20 or so. (Might!) That means you would not see any product for at least a year. This may prove to be too much hassle, but we will meet with CrowdOx and QM about this and bring you the best answer possible.

4. QM and Crowdox will handle all address changes. An initial address will be taken up front, but then reminders will go out later when we get close to Wave 1 and Wave 2 shipping so everyone will have a chance to update their mailing addresses. QM was very easygoing about this and not concerned at all. SOP.

If you have any other logistics-specific questions, please post them here for us to collate and collect. That would help a great deal!

Thank you for your patience and awesome support!

Wonder how much of that money raised will get embezzled away and not make it into the hands of artist/writers/editors this time

What??? Is there some history here are are you just trying to stir the pot?

I expect any of the workers agree on payment/commission prior to doing any work and are then paid that amount on completion, or they are on a salary.

A CGL big wig embezzled a heap of money about a decade ago (and still works there)

They have a long continuing history of screwing over freelancers, distributors and even customers trying to buy from their own online store

We're past the two million stretch goal. I wonder if they'll post any additional ones for the last 44 odd hours...

Oof, shipping estimates have been posted in Update #27.

Near $60 (I assume USD) for Wave 1 and Wave 2.

I'm torn: I accept that shipping is expensive but this wrecks the value of the KS... though it'll probably be even more expensive at retail afterwards.

Kind of hoping I forget about it for the rest of the day and realise tomorrow afternoon that I've missed it. smile.gif

Even with shipping it's going to be a lot cheaper than retail.

Just one question, anybody know if you can get the main rules books in Australia anywhere? I have the pdfs as a backer but was wondering if anybody locally sells hard copies?

Ask your FLGS. They can probably order them in for you.
