Is Yggsburgh part of the $10 sale?

You guys even need to clarify that the $95 books aren't included. Or are they?

Also can we pre-order stuff that you have listed at $10?
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.

From the intro page:
The sale does NOT include the C&C collectors box set, the GFW boxed set or the C&C special edition collectors core books.

It also doesn't specify if books planned (i.e. Gord the Rogue novel) are off-limits.

Just making sure.

Yes.

And as for the Gord book, I don't imagine that this sale covers things that arent even in print yet. ^_^

TLG is a small business. Selling books from their stockpile at or below cost keeps cash flow moving, makes fans happy, and helps spread the word about the publisher, the C&C game, etc. It makes good business sense.

Pre-selling product yet to be printed at or below cost is sort of like shooting yourself in the foot if you're a small publisher, so I don't think it's likely. I think we all want to see TLG do well, maybe even take a nip at the d20 market.

Alrighty then!

Figured the $10 sale for "pre-order" was right-out, but never hurts to make sure.

Will order Yggbsurgh.

Edit: Just as soon as I figure out how to do so without having Paypal pop up with the full-price when I attempt to pay for it. Is there a special order page?

Oh hell. Bugger that!

I'll just phone in the damn thing and use VISA and make sure it's correct.

All I really wanted to know was if it was eligible for the sale.

I wish un-released items were on sale... I'd scoop up all of Yggsburgh, all of CZ, the two upcoming GFW series books, all of the A-series of modules, and the upcoming board games, too!

Actually... that does make me wonder: are the products released under Standing Man Games subject to the sale?

*snort* If you want to buy $8 modules for $10 I'm sure the Trolls would be happy to sell them to ya.

On the same topic - Is the shipping cost the same for international sales?

Thanks

I believe it may be more since sending overseas tends to cost more. Ill find out from Steve later tonight or tomorrow and get back to you.

Just curious, how do we know if Troll Lords got the order? My Paypal account shows the amount posted to Troll Lords account, but I've sent 2 e-mails to customer support asking if they got my order and e-mail and haven't gotten a reply yet...

I ordered on June 24th; has anyone who ordered at that time received their items yet? I'd sure hate to miss out on such a great sale!

Call the Trolls and ask thats the fastest method.

Hi Thom. I order a couple of days before that and haven't received my package. But I'm confident it will be here shortly. Much depends on the USP. The Trolls were probably busy during the sale and may not have sent an e-mail confirmation, and I haven't always received one. But, I've always got my shipment.

They do a great job getting the stuff out and to the customers! But, by all means send an e-mail.

Welcome to the Crusade!

Thanks again, Trolls.
