Here's the latest Appendix N Kickstarter update. I backed for $100. I got my first shipment (which didnt have the bells and whistles of the 2nd shipment) which was the first 2 adventures. Did every that was supposed to get their first 2 adventures?
So, I'm gathering from this update that the current shipment will include #3, 4 and 6 and some extras that were in the 2nd shipment of the first 2 adventures.
I like John. I really do. I almost wish he had just thrown in the towel on this. Because the endless stretch goals made this one hell of a money sink. This is a solidly in the red project. Again, in print stretch goals can kill a successfully funded Kickstarter. In this case, we ave folks that still haven't gotten their first shipment five years after it was supposed to ship

Full update today.
As I prepared the next two modules in print to ship, I was not happy with the amount of material in them as compared to the first two modules. I know it has been too long and I need to wrap up this project, but I went ahead and expanded the two adventures a bit and made them much deadlier too. I have also added almost all of the Add-On Adventures to these two modules as well. I know some folks did receive a couple Add-On Adventures in print during the second shipment, but not everyone. Now everyone will. And lastly, I have also included the Kickstarter-Only Add-On Adventure #6 by Michael Curtis, “Room and Boarded.” Pictures of each module packet are below with the details.
Each of these two module bundles have been made by hand in the BHP workshop (other than the thee covers) and each bundle has been signed and numbered by me.
I am currently shipping to the $500, $200, $100 pledge levels, to those who offered extra for shipping, and to the few folks who did not receive either one or both of the first two shipments. I will post the progress each week on Fridays.
Appendix N Adventures #5: "A Face to Face With Dzyvatz," by Yves Larochelle is a much larger module that is nearing completion (just waiting on cover and map art). The plan is to have it ready, released, and printed by Gary Con. Again, everyone will get a pdf of the module and those who gave extra for shipping and the pledge levels above $50 will get a copy of it in print.
Thank you for your continued patience. See you on Friday.

Update to Hommlet / 3d Printing post... - I finished printing out and assembling the first two rooms of the Moat-house dungeon, on Sunday night. This was just to get a feel of how things work and...

My god, you have to give him credit for having heart. He has released some fun adventures and, while I don't know as we'd ever crowdfund a venture of his again, I'd certainly buy future products for him. He has slowly, painfully kept crawling towards the finish line. You have to admire someone who refuses to say die.ReplyDelete
Good on him for getting this near to completion.
I chipped in extra for shipping when he requested it and when he began to flounder. I got one shipment years ago of the first adventure and....that's it. This has turned into such a monumental clusterf***, that even HE has no idea what he's sent and who he's sent it to. I've written this off years ago, as have most of the backers, to be honest.ReplyDelete
I have gotten three shipments from John. The first module. Shipment 2 was #1, #2, #3, #4. Then he sent me #1 & #2 again. Plus a lot of Pdfs. I'm happy with that. Anything else that comes my way is a bonus. I am truly in awe that he is still going. I just hate that he continues to tell us false statements. I absolutely believe he originally spent that $ on himself (I think he used it to move) thinking he could just make it up to the backers down the road & it got out of hand. Either way hat's off to John for plugging away...ReplyDelete
I backed for $100 - got one shipment - adventures 1 and 2 - no bonus materials.Delete
If I knew back then what I know now about KS, I would have backed out before it funded. It simply wasnt viable.
Vance's Merry Men was written by Michael Curtis?ReplyDelete
Bother have "is" ;)
