I had a response from Brian Shotton this morning about my missing minion pledges.

He said that he would send them tomorrow.

I thanked him for his assistance and confirmed my address.

I have no problems letting MCG have both barrels when they do wrong, so it's only fair I comment when things go right.

Hopefully Skipp my piggybacker will have his Kanis/Blackwall sets soon.

Sure, it's a few months late, but I'm not really bothered by delays, just a lack of communication.

This has nothing to do with the fulfilment of our other stuff of course, but maybe, just maybe, it's a sign that things are moving in the right direction.

I am really wondering what is happening, we can say a lot of things, but i don't think they let the situation worsen (?) just because they don't care.

We just don't know.

Speculation is all we can do, but it's pointless really until someone somewhere says something.

I just wanted to report on something that's dragged on for months that finally looks like it's being resolved. Better late than never.

I'm still missing replacements for both Myth 2.0 and Mercs:Recon that Brian said he'd ship back in January.

I'd wait to give praise until you actually RECEIVE the replacements.

Marcus,

It's been a long journey but hopefully we're finally getting a positive result, due largely to your determination to keep pursuing this! I greatly appreciate your efforts but think there must be times when you wished you'd never made the offer to let me piggyback on your pledge. cry

On occasion this whole process has felt like a little sandbox story all of its own. I initially wanted to be part of the Kickstarter to support Megacon as I really enjoyed Myth but had picked up my Captains pledge on the secondary market. Its disappointing therefore that if I'm lucky I might get two boxes that I could have picked up as a non backer at Gencon last year around the time of Gencon 2018.....

But hey I'm all for happy endings so fingers crossed

Me too... I wanted so badly for MegaCon to succeed, mainly because their former office (before they vacated) was 2 blocks from my house, and I loved the idea of a local board game company to support... especially with a dungeon crawler type game system (I grew up on HeroQuest, and that's what started my interest in the tabletop game hobby). I even offered to stop by their office on occasion to help, but that was right after they had moved out.

I didn't join Kickstarter until after both of the Recon and JM were complete, but got on the Emergence Event expansion and Dark Frontier campaigns.

Oh, I'm not counting my chickens yet, Cris.

But we take our victories where we can with MCG.

Let's see if Brian will follow through as he promised. Whether he does or doesn't, I'll post my findings here.

No, I don't regret it at all I'm just sorry you've had to wait and grateful for your patience.

Hopefully we'll all get what we are owed soon.

I'm still waiting for Megacon to even acknowledge my requests for some Mercs Recon replacements. All I need is a single card and a few bases. But they'd rather just let us fans hang in the breeze, I guess.

That's what we are all waiting to hear. Hopefully this NDA lifts and we can all hear what is going to happen with the IP and the hundreds of dollars we all spent.

This seems like as good of a place as any to post this.

I got a random email from MERCS this afternoon saying that my products had shipped. I figured it was Emergence Event: The Awakening, which was due to arrive at Kable's facility on Tuesday 7/11.

I looked at the packing slip, and it was actually for the 2x sets of colored fate dice I purchased during the Pledge Manager so long ago.

So, no idea what to make of that. But stuff is shipping. Kinda, I guess?

They will fulfil our orders, one random dice pack at a time

Would be interested to know what actually ends up in the box. Shipping any part of the pledge piecemeal right now seems a total reverse on the last stated claim that "all remaining stuff will come in one wave.

I'd put good money on that being some weird clerical error right now. But nothings beyond believable at this point.

From the Myth JM pledgemanager? Was that the only add-on you had?

Yes, clerical error. A bunch of people in the Emergent Event KS comments are getting the same email, and they never backed Myth.

Yep, echoing Jorune... If you got a shipping notice from Mercs for "Myth Dice", it's actually the Emergence Event Awakenings expansion KS delivery. I got the same e-mail, and I didn't back Myth JM.

I'll give you three guesses.

Update - Brian replied by email today and says he will get the tracking numbers for me.

So that story might have a happy ending after all.

I'll keep you posted, be it good news or bad.

Yes, as I updated, I had an email from Brian saying he'd sent it.

It's been tracked across the Atlatntic Pond and finally arrived in Good Old Blighty, where -

- PLOT TWIST!!!-

it has been kidnapped by The Darkness HM Customs and held for ransom.

But hey, even I can't blame MCG for the latter. (Unless they didn't put sufficient postage on it or something...)

So my next step is working how to get it from customs, and thence to Skipp/Barry my patient piggy-backer, who has received nothing thus far.

We may, or may not, ever get our stretch goals, but it would be nice to get the core sets into his hands at least. It's been a funny, strange old ride.

They have to be sure the package doesn't contain any tribbles.

I think the Tribbles were stretch goals, so I'm not expecting them 'til the next wave...

No, they are in there - mcg just couldn't tell you about it because of the NDA.

Well, it's now freed from captivity and making it's way from the Midlands to darkest Wales!

Might we still have a happy ending?
