Victorious is shipping!

Post by DMMike »

Hey all,

Steve's begun the shipping process of all the books, and they'll be going on throughout the week and into next week. At least, the Trolls staying at the Dens will be mailing. Steve and his minions will be at GenCon, and selling Victorious rulebooks. Looks like I was proved wrong....never happier to be mistaken! ;)

Sure would be nice, but I probably won't see mine until the middle of next week.
Since its 20,000 I suggest "Captain Nemo" as his title. Beyond the obvious connection, he is one who sails on his own terms and ignores those he doesn't agree with...confident in his journey and goals.

I assume that we're talking about shipping of rulebooks to kickstart folks.

Any timeline for a common guy who wants to buy a copy?

Well, AFAIK its for sale right now at GenCon but I think it'll be September at least before distributors get a gander. This was what I was told about 2 weeks ago, and as we all know this can change a lot in the Troll Dens depending on circumstance. ;)

Sign into KS and look at your history. Click on this specific KS, and it will still show what level you backed at.

Ah, I yearn for the good old days when I was important enough to know inside stuff. And when I found time to go to GenCon. Feeling sad, knowing that muggles might be buying this right now while I sit at home.

I got busy working on my deck and didn't get a chance to go to the post office today, so don't know if it arrived. I'll have to wait until Monday. :(

Sounds like everyone here, except Fin, was a backer. I have yet to hear of a backer getting their stuff.

Great! Did you just get the rulebook or the whole shebang?

Just curious from a shipping standpoint.

I got the main rule book and the "Night of the Jackals" adventure. I can't remember if I get the other books in physical form or not, but I don't think they are printed yet anyways.

<sigh> That should have been A Night for Jackals. Someone got the wrong logo on the module. Does the interior of the module say "A Night for..." or "Night of.."?

Mike, wh just wants the title to be consistent!

Well, I know I reached out TWICE to see about getting the spelling of my name corrected under playtesters. Not sure if it got done or not but I fear I'll be disappointed when I get my regular and leather copies of the book.

On the first interior page it says "Night of the Jackals." On the first script is says "A Night for Jackals."

Sorry Mike... You know how Trolls are.

Pat, I assume you were contacting the Trolls? I never heard from you?

Rigon, Yeah....I can just hope they change it for when it goes into distribution. Beyond the fact that "Night of the Jackals" was the title of a Cthulhu by Gaslight adventure, I think A Night for Jackals just sounds better. ;)

We did indeed have it at Gen Con and you guys are going to love it! It's GORGEOUS! Great work, Mike! The game sold fairly well, too, which is highly unusual for a successful kickstarter! I'm excited for the future of this one and looking forward to some Vicky/Amazing Adventures crossover product in the future!

Thanks, I've got an email in to Steve asking for details...which should be answered in September. ;)

Yeah, I bugged the Trolls directly. They've been pretty good about getting stuff like that fixed prior to going to print but I just don't know if they caught it or not. I don't think the PDF was updated though so it will be a surprise when I finally get it. ;)

Actually, what I *really* want to see is how the leather cover looks. I'm just picturing the logo on the leather cover which would look great -- if someone has gotten a leather copy, please post a pic here! :)

Got my copy of the rules today. This is a great looking book! Even though the interior is B&W, the layout is real classy. Nice stuff.

Still waiting. Hope it did not go to the old address. I did update the Trolls months ago on that. :)
