Printing Complete, Books En Route!

Hey everyone, I'm extremely glad to announce that printing of the books is complete! They've been loaded on a ship and are at this very moment headed to US shores! We've been given a time frame of up to five weeks for final delivery. The last leg of the journey, when the shipment is handed off to US postal carriers, is when we'll be able to use more traditional tracking. I've been advised that this should be roughly the last week of shipping, so at least we'll have some early warning as to exactly when we'll be getting everyone's packages together. So, barring the perfect storm, bermuda triangles, or pirates, it should be like clockwork from here on out.

Zed or Alive hot off the press!

We're currently getting things in order so we get the custom ZoA playing cards at the same time and will be shipping them out together.

Zed or Alive printed!

Once again I'd like to offer profuse thanks to our amazing backers on behalf of the RDG crew, it's incredibly moving to see Zed or Alive: The Zombie Miniatures Game, that used to be just a dream turn into reality. He won't admit it, but even John got a little misty seeing these pics. :P

The Store is Open for Business!

Hey everyone, The UK setting pack is continuing development, but this week's news has more to do with the work we've been doing on the website and the opening of our web store! This is something we were trying to get done before the KS concluded, but were unable to finish in time and keep up with the campaign updates. Now that it is ready, we will be switching  the delivery of subsequent electronic rewards (such as upcoming setting packs) through the store via coupon codes.

The good news is that now folks who missed out on the Kickstarter can get their hands on the rules!

I want to make sure I'm clear that we remain committed to getting pledge rewards to our backers ASAP, and that we will make sure that backers are getting taken care of when we're releasing new rewards. When possible, we'll be adding items to the store as they're released, but if there are any conflicts, KS backers are always the priority.

That's pretty much it for now - we're having a blast getting the UK setting ready, I have a feeling you guys will enjoy it. :) As usual, please let me know if you have any questions or concerns!
