    I am supposed to pick up the book at gencon, but Ookadook, Giant in the Playgrounds, or Order of the Stick don't show up anywhere on the map or schedule for being tabels in the exhibit hall and I didn't see it on my wander through. What table number is it/where is it located?

    Good question! Ookoodook is part of @APEGames which is located in booth #1739.
    I hope that helps.

    Thanks! I don't have him followed on Twitter and didn't see any email or anything that stated that.

    No notification over here either--how long should we wait before querying things?

    At least another week, or until they say "We've shipped all pre-orders!". They have enough staff in packing/shipping to handle their normal throughput of product. The few times they have a major pre-order release I'm sure they press more people into it but there is a point where more people only increases the confusion and chance of mistakes, and the others have other things to do anyway. They can get x shipments out per day regardless of what they are so they will get to us when they get to us.

    If they sent enough people to GenCon, there would naturally be a lull in getting things shipped out.

    Picked mine up at GenCon. Read it all that night. I enjoyed all the stories and particularly enjoyed the intro by a most unexpected character.

    The Giant said: "I think the team wants to get them all out the door before they leave for GenCon". This is why I'm a bit concerned--it would be nice to know they definitely failed to achieve that goal and thus some people will have to wait a bit longer.

    Got my copy in the mail today.

    For a moment, I thought it was called "Good Deeds Gone Unpublished"

    I would think that the fact some people haven't received theirs makes it self evident they didn't meet the goal. Heck; they're using USPS. Even once they manage to package a bunch doesn't mean their door-to-door carrier is prepared pick them all up.

    I'm giving them until the release date until I even think about this again. If it shows up before then all the better.

    They also were working on getting the solo orders out the door first, then doing the boxes with multiple items. So if factotum ordered GDGU and, say, SS&DT, well, there's a delay there as well.

    Got mine in the mail today at work (I use my work address for a lot of things because my apartment has tiny mailboxes and I don't want packages sitting outside my door where they can easily be stolen). I eagerly read through as much of it as I could on my lunch break and will undoubtedly cover-to-cover it at least one more time tonight.

    I didn't--I already own all the other books, so this was just a single order.

    Folks, it's not so much about giving them time or whatever - I don't think anyone is actually complaining. It's about being paranoid about something going wrong

    Until you see me (or APE Gamer) saying, "All the pre-orders have shipped," assume that all the pre-orders have not shipped.

    Just talked to Kevin at Oookoodook. He told me that they had to freeze shipping from Wednesday to Monday due to GenCon. But everything is back to full capacity, so the remaining pre-orders should be going out very soon.

    I will still make an announcement when they are all shipped.

    My book arrived! Everything is great. I greatly enjoyed spending time with the Katos together (even though their actual plot is a bit thin), and Mr. Scruffy’s adventure and Lien’s origin story are both really sweet with great art, and rereading Therkla’s and O’Chul’s stories was a pleasure.

    Only one serious quibble. It is pretty serious though.

    Does Rich maybe not know the word “bight”? Because calling it ClawClaw Bay feels like he was telling a joke but forgot the punchline!


    Anyway, thank you, Giant, for many awesome stories.

    Got my book today. Looks lovely, as always. I think the O-Chul story is my favorite of the prequel stories, ever. I'm a sucker for that kind of thing, though, so take my word with a grain of salt.
