    No problem! Oh, and I got my delivery notification yesterday, so now I just have to wait for the book to make it across the Atlantic.

    To those that pre-ordered at gumroad: did you guys get an e-mail after preordering? I pre-ordered today (yes, I know it’s just 30h before the release) did not get any e-mail and am now afraid I made a typo when putting in my e-mail.

    I pre-ordered in May and got a confirmation. (And thanks for the reminder that I should be able to download the PDF tomorrow... still waiting for the print book to make its way across the Atlantic.)

    Forgot about this until Gen Con. Saw one of the last copies sitting on a table and scarfed it up immediately.

    Thank you!

    So how long until the Gumroad books are available? I live in a different time zone and I'm not sure which zone I should be looking at.

    I'm not getting any notifications, on email or on Gumroad. I tried resending the receipt and when I looked at Gumroad again Good Deeds was suddenly no longer in my library.

    I just received two confirmation e-mails (on the same address) and two download links to the book, and apparently I was also charged twice. I'm pretty sure that's not supposed to happen? Does anyone else have this issue?

    Just bought and downloaded it from Gumroad. Hopping a flight to Europe tomorrow, so I am saving this delicious treat to brighten that otherwise dismal time waste.

    I did look at the page before the preface and loved this bit (I believe I can quote it here do to it having nothing whatsoever to do with the actual book:

    This book would have been printed on recycled
    paper if it had been printed at all, but since it’s
    a digital copy, it isn’t. I guess the electrons are
    recycled, technically.

    He uses the same blurb on all the PDFs, replacing the jokes about recycled paper. I think the blurb in this book has something to do with shambling mounds.

    Yes, Rich can make even a form statement about the paper content a funny joke.

    Well Gumroad tech support got back to me pretty fast all things considered and they fixed the issue pretty quickly. Its still not part of my Library for some reason but they provided me a direct link to it so I'm pretty satisfied.

    Hmm... Same thing has happened to me... How did you contact Gumroad?!

    Ughhh! Turned out to be a problem with spam filters, after all that. (stoopid spam filters). App and pdf now fine, but thanks for the replies!

    ...... and now I have the story to give to players who want tips on how to play a paladin!

    O-Chul is always a good example of how to play a paladin.

    I didn't have it either, the link was in my Spam folder.

    I don't understand why there is a button marked "add to library" instead of having that done automatically.

    For what it's worth, this isn't always the case (i also didn't need it, but if address change comes up surprisingly for anyone, that could be an issue). I got a confirmation email from Ookoodook and email receipt from paypal on April 30, a pre-order advertisement from Oookoodook on May 26, and then shipping confirmation email (with tracking number) on July 31. No address change email.

    Just stopping in to say that if you didn't pre-order the PDF, it's now available for sale and immediate download.

    Also, while I haven't spoken to the Ookoodook people, I have to think they're done with the pre-order shipping by now, so if you want to order the book and get it right away, you can do that, too.

    And it's well on it's way to game store shelves as well.

    So basically, the book is out, is what I'm saying. Hope everyone enjoys it.

    I'm a Kickstarter backer, so I've previously read and enjoyed O'Chul and Therkla's stories, but I had to get the book because I can't get enough of your work, Rich! Unfortunately I can't afford physical books (limited home space and expensive shipping), but on the other hand, with Gumroad I can support you and read the book right away! I hope you don't mind me pointing a typo - page 59 panel 8, balloon 2 - I think it should be 'than', not 'then'. That story (Lien's) I liked the most from the new ones, and that big panel on page 62 is beautiful!

    Hmm, so I did pre-order the PDF, but in my Gumroad library it's still showing up as a pre-order and my card hasn't been charged, even though the email receipt said it would be released on the 15th. I'm trying to find somewhere on the website I can contact someone about this.

    I just noticed this, but shouldn't it be "unlikely band of ragtag misfits"?

    Oh, and I just got my PDF from GumRoad. But I bought it today, not a preorder.

    If they were ragtag, sure. Maybe they're just misfits.

    Some of the pre-orders failed to successfully charge the card for various reasons (charge declined, or they accidentally put in the wrong number, or whatever), so that's probably what happened. Try contacting support@gumroad.com.

    Give it to a friend! Especially one who doesn't read OOTS usually.

    If there's a rash of people getting multiple copies, I'll have a talk with Ookoodook, but it's probably just something like they forgot to clear your order from their system after they mailed it the first time.

    Just read it.

    It's beautiful, Giant. The art is great, the writing is top notch, and the O-Chul story may well be the most thought-provoking part of OOTS lore to date. Moral conundrums similar to those faced here are very relevant to the real world, and unfortunately, it is all too common to see them dealt in less than satisfactory ways seen in this story.

    And this coming right after the release of a fantasy game with an "us or them" divide that expects you to hate and wage war on "them" simply for not being "us" is just what I needed to soothe the dirty feeling from playing that one.
