    Tekwych got a reaction from Stronghammer in PSA on ordering magnets from K&J magnetics in the U.S.   
    K&J is a very good supplier and the USPS option is a very good way to go for the sizes and quantiles we buy. The package will fit in any standard mailbox so you know it's a secure delivery and not left out or held in an office some ware. I do tend to buy in bulk though, 500 or more magnets at a time. I use the D22 magnets for basses and scenery as well as some weapons options on vehicles. Their D68PC-RB is a great buy as a 'tool' to make sure you have you polarity right before gluing anything in.

    I know this is sacrilege here but in AGoTv2 I play three banners so I can find something in most Chapter Packs. If you are willing to look actively at more than on Clan you will find playable cards almost every month.

    Hero Lab by Lone Wolf Development has a great, editable computer character generation system for Savage Worlds and many other game systems. There are several volunteer data file editors that love to help out.
    They also make a tabletop miniatures management system called Army Builder. Great for X-Wing, Armada and many other game systems

    Somthing no one has pointed out yet is the new deluxe policy of letting them drop as soon as the product is ready and not waiting until the end of a cycle. We could see three deluxes of two clans each within 6 months of the core launch and stretching the first cycle to 9 months instead of 6 if FFG wants to push the meta that fast. In AGoT the first deluxe was at the end of cycle one bit the second dropped in the middle of cycle 2 and the third just 2 packs into Cycle 3.

    Tekwych got a reaction from HidaYama in Our L5R Store Orders At Risk?   
    I personally would have preferred that ANA cut back to two distributers rather than one but:
    Big Box Retail - B&N, Target, Walmart, Walgreens, etc. are part of a different distribution channel. Any product they order is part of a different system and does not effect quantity or availability of hobby store product.
    Diamond - Alliance is under contact with ANA and Diamond does not (currently) comply with that contact. NO ANA product sales through Diamond allowed at this time. 
    Web Sales - Companies that sell on line, from MM and CSI to a FLGS with a web cart, are part of a different distribution channel. Any product they order is part of a different system and does not effect quantity or availability of hobby store product.
    Web + B&M - A company with web and B&M sales must keep inventories separate. MM can buy product for their storefront from Alliance. If that product gets sold online it is a breach of contract and ANA could take action.
    Constrained Orders - The percentage of orders shorted from one warhorse will always be smaller than the percentage of orders shorted from two or more (five) warehouses for several reasons:
    - One store can no longer order from three or four places expecting to get shorted and try to sell through.
    - Better location or resources. taking 2 cases from an order of twenty to two additional orders of 1 case each is much easier then working out which account at which distributer can be adjusted to best support as many stores as possible.
    - Dead stock, returns, and clearance sales should be lower as stores will not double order from multiple distributers.
    Accountability - With one supply chain (for hobby sales) to watch over ANA can act on issues reported to them. If stores work with ANA then, most likely, there will be better availability at preorder and restock.
    Direct Sales - As ANA now sells FFG, Asmodee, Days of Wonder, Cantan, F2Z, Plaid Hat and more it is much easier to buy direct if the store can not het good terms with Alliance. There are enough studios there that a store can make it worth while to have that additional time and shipment cost for a separate direct account.
    There is more to this story that will be told at the end of the month.

    This game has a release date of October. not July. Gen Con is not the release of the game, it is a celebration of a new game done for the PR that Gen Con creates. It is a way to get Limited product into a few hands to build word of mouth for the Actual release and Launch that will take place later. All of Gen Con is a PR stunt and having only 350 copies would have been enough to pull nit off. Every additional sale at the booth is unneeded and logistically a loss. 
    L5R will be available to the general public on its release date in October.

    OK, for a moment I thought you were talking to yourself. Ned more Avatars, or custom Avatars.
    Yes, Asmodee North America (ANA) has chosen to make all companies that buy direct from them, retailers, (wholesalers and wholesalers who masquerade as online retailers) sign new agreements to maintain their accounts with all the ANA studios (Days of Wonder, Asmodee, FFG, Plaid Hat, Z-Man) The new contracts require you to register either as B&M or Online. If you want to do both you must separate your orders and have two accounts. Terms for a B&M are much more lenient. Orders from all the studios are combined and everything ships together.
    Going forward, Organized Play, and Events will be combined as well. Can't wait for Ashes: Rise of the Phoenixborn OP

    FFG now has an on sale date. No pre-order can be shipped from any retailer before this date. That means that you can pick up from your FLGS on the same day that any retailer, B&M or online, can release boxes to any career to be sent to a customer.
    There is no way, officially, to receive your product earlier.
    Also the wholesale price offered for B&M sales is lower than the wholesale price offered for online sales. Theoretically a B&M is making more profit but B&Ms have much more overhead so it comes out a bit even.

    I have several different token sets from them but never bought games or used their subscription service. Easy to order, good communication before, during, and even after delivery. They are more about supporting a few game communities rather than selling as many games as they can.
