What is irking me a bit is that while I preordered to help guage costs and help Rick with effectively maximizing profit with this book, due to geographic inconveniences I'll be waiting for mine in the mail while people who DIDNT take steps and be courteous by preorder will get this book at Gencon before me. I dont think its fair that anyone can walk up to the counter and purchase this will fans who are trying to be supportive get screwed.

The book was supposed to ship in June now a preorder of it is going to be send ahead of time for distribution at Gencon.. huge slap in the face.

So last time I will preorder to help out, its seems your more rewarded NOT to preorder.
If you preordered for the purpose of helping Rich, then your reward was helping, not getting it first. If you wanted to get it first, then don't claim that you did it to help. Just say, "I preordered because I wanted it first." Don't try to cloak it in some sort of noble altruistic aims if what you really cared about was getting it first no matter what.

Also, if previous years are any indication, there will probably be a very, very long line at GenCon. I remember people waiting for 4-5 hours in a line to get Paladin Blues when it came out, and I remember the board game selling out by noon on Thursday. So no one is going to be "rewarded" for not pre-ordering. I would rather wait days in the mail and be guaranteed to get it then hours of time in person and then be told that they sold out three people ahead of me.
