I'll see if I can't fix that shipping problem folks. Its the same problem we always have with these sales as paypal rates is shipping by price or weight and the weight mess is, well, a mess.

But the sale is being delayed a bit as Brian Kowalski, the poor sucker (or lucky man depending on how you look at it) is in New England and some 1 million folks up there have no power, and Brian is one of those so chosen. When he gets back online he'll get it caught up.

Thanks and Merry Christmas!

Steve

Dang... I can't believed I missed that!

Of course, I already have 1-4 so it seems I'll have to just order 5.

Day 6 is up, but RPGNow.com is still on Day 4.

Also, I started checking prices for the sale to Canada, and the prices were hilariously low a minute ago. Can I get those prices instead of the current ones?

Ha! Alas, you may not.

Steve and I were up late last night adjusting the shipping rates to work with Paypal's system. A new shopping cart system is definitely in the works for the next year.

I've been adding a new sale item every day, since Steve gave me the info. He's been jammed up with a lot of stuff, but I am sure the RPGnow will be updated soon.

Thanks

Too bad. Those were great prices.
But seriously, still waiting on the PDF sale. 3 days of horror instead of giving. And what are the odds on a deal on Castle Zagyg (and Upper Works) that only includes C&C stuff? I love Gary's work and all, but I'm primarly a C&C fan.

Seeing how I didn't have any of the HH stuff, I broke down and bought Day 4.

Has anyone seen Day 8 yet? Geesh!

Not just the shipping. When I click on the A1-A5 is comes up as $18.00 for US instead of $25.00, now I like a deal as much as the next guy but I also want to make sure the Trolls stay in business. Guess I'll have top phone it in!

Might I suggest something like X-cart + Mysql + the paypal as the gateway for your upgrade next year. Price is not bad and it seems to be one of the better system out there.

Ok, this might be a dumb question, but I'm going to ask anyhow... is there any reason not to wait until the twelve day to see all the deals and then order?

Realistically, no. A lot of us are waiting to see all 12 days before choosing which ones we want, or can afford, to order.

However, there could be something that runs out of stock as a result of a sale price, and then you'd be completely SOL.
So if you're totally desperate to get your hands on something, and just can't take a chance on it still being available, it's probably worth blowing the extra few bucks on a separate delivery to get it now.

This is the same problem I'm having with the Canadian Crusader Subscriptions. No response yet from the email I sent Steve... no reply to my post in the Crusader forum on this topic.

Wait. Especially if its modules. The Trolls run new print runs on those as needed. If its hard backs, then you may have to worry, especially if its the Gygax HB's.

Amazing day of the sale today, but no separation by order location. Free shipping everywhere?

Are the shipping prices off?

I just sent over the 12th day. And what? There is going to be a 13th day? Surely not.

They're not off. Day 11 which is the $10 hardcover, doesn't include any shipping charges, and there's only one button as opposed to three buttons per region like days 1 - 10.

Howdy Folks, TLG webguy here -

I've been trying to reach Steve to confirm, but he must be out of the shop at the moment.

True, there is only one button for the $10 hardcover sale - when checking out through paypal, you can put in your zip and it will give you the shipping charge. (at least it charges me shipping....)

The last item will be added this evening when I return home from the daily grind.

Thanks

Brian

True, if the sale continued I would be game (especially to grab CZ:Y, although that would be impossible after the 1st), but I'm spent out for Christmas.

On the upside, my fiance's mom let it slip that someone bought me at least one of the other books on my list.

Just bought the 5th Day of Christmas bundle on RPGNow. Just waiting on Day 12 (and 13?) there, and I'll figure out the rest of my purchases. Also, Day 10 now contains no items.

I'm spent out on rpgs for the moment, but I got a slew of CZ goodness and a C&C PHB, so I'm content.
