IGUK are retauiling this, right now (!), for £29. That's as good as it's going to get, and they haven't let me down (itself a mighty feat) thus far. So i've ordered it. Hopefully i should get it monday/tuesday.

IGUK were being a bit naughty advertising it as being in stock over the weekend when it clearly wasn't. That's not cool.

Got my copy today. Nice big scary demon on the front, fortunately didn't get sent to the wrong address.

I suspect that this book must have got caught in customs and the extra cost is to cover some stupid customs BS.

Why are the Lychguard stats different from those in Tome of Corruption?

It's not uncommon for stats to vary from book to book. Doesn't make it any less maddening mind you, but it does happen. I continue to do my utmost to make sure it doesn't happen where ever I can. Rest assured on that.

FFG, again, need better editors. This is where all their problems stem from.

 Yes, it would still be nice to have stats for Lord of Change's melee attacks, or any other weapons they might have and be able to put to use with that Combat Master and Swift Attack talents they have :P

If it is a mistake then it's down to Esdevium to correct this because that is an unacceptable price difference or an unacceptable mistake, but the price retailers will charge will be based on what Esdevium charge. It may be that this book is delayed for the same reason it's being listed at this ridiculous price.

It should be noted that the prices printed on the books themselves are just the manufacturer's suggested retail price. The distributors can mark up as much as the stores they supply are willing to accept, and the stores that sell the product can again mark up as much as the customers are willing to pay. However, in today's world where online comparative shopping is easy, most will stick to the manufacturer's suggested retail price so as to stay competitive. OTOH, if you live in a locale that has limited options for obtaining the item, then those that provide it can mark up to what the locals are willing to pay.  This also applies if their competition have other costs (like shipping and handling) that give them a relative advantage. They are under no obligation to fully pass on that advantage to the customer.

Short version: Sometimes capitalism can bite you in the ass.

Word! ;)

In my opinion, Brick&Mortar stores have absolutely no chance to beat the online-price and their customers know that. So in exchange for providing explanations, advice, being a local gamer community service, doing tournaments, etc. the stores charge the officially listed price (or even a bit more) and people are willing to throw a few bucks more to keep their favorite store alive. However, ridiculous overpricing wont be accepted.
