  • Companion Print in July?

    So before Amazon.ca had it listed as May, now it says July.

    When is the hardcover coming out?

    It is printed, and has either just started shipping to pre-orders or is just about to.

    Please note that Amazon gets their copies through the book trade, and those tend to ship from our warehouse later than game store distribution.

        So any idea what the street date is for this? Amazon and Chapters Indigo here in Canada still show July 10th, but Noble Knight claims to have it for sale already.

        Is this a Canada vs. USA thing?

        Really just want to give someone my money in this country for the book lol

        Cheers!

          Someone at RPG net saw copies in their FLGS recently, and having contacted GR Customer Service were told that the books had gone to game trade distributors in parallel or slightly before direct pre-orders to customers were sent out. Per Fildrigar's post above however, Amazon get THEIR copies via BOOKTRADE distribution, so the release date on Amazon, and for other retailers sourcing from Book distribution, is likely to be unchanged.

          Meanwhile I will wait (nearly patiently) for copies to cross the Atlantic and get to my FLGS here in the UK...

            So I have to wait to get it in July?

            That's not cool.

            Where I live in Canada the only FLGS that MIGHT have it will certainly overcharge for it (they are more a board game store, than an RPG store).

            Why would this distribution model even exist? It seems to be punitive to those of us who don't have a great FLGS we can support and rely on Amazon or Chapters-Indigo to get stuff.

            Le sigh...

              Green Ronin does not distribute the books. The distributors do. We make the books, and send them out into the distribution chain. Because we co-warehouse at a game distributor, our books enter that distribution chain quicker than the book distribution chain.

                I understand, I just don't like it.

                My choices are wait until July or pay (after exchange and shipping) nearly double the price.

                Guess I'll make do with my PDF copy I got on RPGNOW for the time being.
