    I've pre-ordered mine, and wish to remind the OOTS community that the more of these books are sold (and the faster they're sold!) the sooner War & XPs will come back into print.

    So... any hope of that Book 3 reprint? It makes me sad to have such a glaring hole in my collection.

    Pre-ordered it, along with Book 1 which I still don't have, at least that way it mitigates the cost of the shipping to Europe.

    That leaves books 2 and 3 for me to get. What are the chances they'll both be in stock at the same time when they get re-printed, so as to minimise the shipping?

    The only books I own so far are the 2 prequel ones, so I thought this would be a good time to buy some.

    The shipping on this one is $15, and if I add books 1 and 4 to the package, the shipping becomes $43, for a grand total of $119.70, and I'd still be missing two books. I really wish I knew some comic store that sold this in Brazil...

    This was already asked and answered by the Giant earlier in the thread.
    Congratulations, you can link to TV Tropes. This does not mean you have special insight into the storytelling process, much less the author's mind. Stories don't need to fit into neat boxes, you know.

    I would order in a heartbeat (after all, I oughta do SOMETHING to hasten a No Cure reprint) if I weren't a) broke and b) scared of the embarrassment resulting from one of my parents opening the door and wondering what it was that came for me.

    I still can't see it but thanks for the info.

    Just reposting my earlier question if there is a way to get The Giant money for 'On the Order of PC's' or if I have to go the eBay route?

    EDIT: it does say in the shop link to the left that it is still available.

    I'm just irrationally scared of the embarrassment of having to discuss something I've never talked with my parents about with my parents, even if briefly, jokingly, and focused on that embarrassment.

    (And even if my dad already reads enough of my blog to know something of OOTS and my mom would probably really enjoy it... actually, maybe that's part of it: everyone knows how something becomes infinitely less cool once your parents like it! )

    Or a book of Vile Darkness (not the D&D rulebook, the actual BOVD). I keep looking for one on ebay, but some guy called Redcloak keeps outbidding me.

    Maybe you can get it shipped in a plain brown envelope or something.....

    I just hope the 'Invaders from the 4th Dimension' isn't about how '4E Rocks!'

    And Roy and his pals are doomed, each new version of D&D has been about (in part) giving more firepower to the PCs.

    And I know it's ultimately a non-canon comic so the outcome shouldn't really matter either way.

    Just checking... okay, I have enough in Paypal for this and and my Help Japan bids. Sorry about all you guys overseas with the shipping, that really sucks.

    And speaking of which, I think it would be awesome if the Giant put up an autographed copy of this as an auction in the dreamwidth or livejournal help japan forums. It'd probably go for an insanely high amount.

    On a different note, does anyone else experience the sheer ecstasy of when a laminated book arrives in the mail on a cold day? If it's warm when it arrives I'm putting it in the fridge before I open it.

    Edit: Order Number: 9249? I just saw it was being sold! It must be impossible to try and be the first one to pre-order.

    I'm sorry if this has been asked before, but I want to know until when the book will be available through pre-order (I can only buy it after the first week of April and I wouldn't want to miss it just for being a couple of weeks late.)

    I'd also like to know how much does it weight and its size (for shipping info.)

    Thanks.

    Based on this answer by The Giant, I'd say there will be planned inventory for you to order in April:

    Quote Originally Posted by The Giant View Post

Based on previous books, we know that about 75% of all the order we're going to get will be in the first two weeks, and the other 25% will be over the next 3 months, so we'll extrapolate the print run number from what we get in March.

    That sounds like a great idea.

    Also, I've found On the Origin of PC's available from a third party distributor, if there's no way to better share the wealth I'll buy it from them.

    Just a quick question regarding this update, does this three books in one Priority Envelope-thingy work with any three books (say, one each of -1, 0 and D) or does it have to be three of the same kind?

    Also, too bad 0 is apparently out of print. My Austrian local gaming store hasn't had -1 and 0 in stock for at least a year and a half now, maybe longer, because their German supplier doesn't have them. I'd have loved to get them together with D if shipping remains at $13.95 for all three books.

    Default Pre-order or Pre-purchase

    Hi Giant,

    I am/was very interested in this book, but understood it was a pre-order, not a pre-purchase. I pre-ordered it when it was first announced, but just noticed on my credit card bill that I have already been charged for it, as of March 17th, which is 6 to 10 weeks from the actual release date (assuming it does indeed come out in May).

    How come I have already been billed for the book? Was this an error?
