I hate to rub salt into your wounds but usps does show this package is in my city at the sorting facility.

 

 

Holy moly, I know right where that is, too - not far!  Why, I could drive up there right now!

The reason for this is that Amazon is not actually selling the RPG products.  All the entries that are being sold "from amazon" is being done through their fulfillment program.  This means that the product has to go from the distributer, to whatever company has decided to sell the product on amazon, then get packaged up and sent to amazon, and then amazon has to get it to their warehouse and process it before it's available for sale.

 

There's horrid lag time involved in all that, and then the seller can set whatever price they want on the product.  And since amazon is taking a cut they can't set it at a price that other online retailers could aford to sell it to you directly for.

 

 

True, but with larger game companies the products are available from amazon WAY before release date.  It's like amazon has no freaking clue that these books are coming out.  Maybe FFG isn't publishing upcoming books in some great upcoming book database or something.

 

The only way to get the books is through the smaller sellers on amazon.  A few weeks after release date, they will eventually show up available from amazon, not just an affiliate, but amazon itself.  The affiliate program will show sold by X and fullfilled by amazon.

Yeah, I wasn't going to say anything but .... usps says I'll get it tomorrow

1) you cursed yourself.   2) if somehow you didn't curse yourself a post as to what species are included would put you on my list of favorite people on the boards, right quick like. 

Seriously though, I hope you do get it.

Yeah, I wasn't going to say anything but when someone else mentioned it was shipping I thought I wouldn't be alone.  Well, my copy of EtU was a week late, perhaps this is just the universe leveling out.

Well, by all indications, my FLGS will be getting their copies sometime in the next couple of days. So, the waiting continues. . . .

Ye Olde USPS says it's been delivered, and here I am, sitting in my office.

Page 36: Hired Gun Signature Ability Tree and a sweet picture

 

 

You guys really want me to spoil the rest of the surprise?  Some surprises with races, what appears to be a lot of sweet guns and gear, and nearly 10 pages of vehicles.

I'm particularly interested in any Critical 1 or 2 Blaster Pistols, or if there's a whip in there - I needs me a complete Indiana Jones.

 

But spoiling everything is good too.  :D

I'm not spoiler friendly, but I know how to skip past a thread.  Now that I know someone has it, I can begin to pester my FLGS!  Let's just hope the lag in shipping time for Canada is minimal!

There is one crit 2 pistol, but sadly no neuronic whip.  

 

9 pages of new weapons though, some awesome stuff in here.  I don't even know where to begin!

New Species are always a good place to start (and the stats are easy enough to post). Also, descriptions of the new Specializations - what's an Enforcer or Heavy actually intended to do?

At least species please? Oh come on, what kind of a monster are you? An Aqualish? A Gamorrean perhaps? No? How about Barabel (wink wink)?

Of course, it is possible that themensch is just trolling us all. Tee hee.
