Numenera finally an announcement
First off there is evidently a bit of a misunderstanding about something I said on my last blog post:
"As a final note it appears that Shanna Germain is the only person from Monte Cook Games that is even trying to do any sort of damage control or PR about this whole thing. Probably not an easy task right now but if books don't start showing up soon overseas it's not going to be getting any easier."
Shanna evidently took that as "only doing PR". Not sure how she took only that away from what I said. I was trying to point out how she has been the ONLY person to step up and try to communicate with fans and backers about the problems going on. You go and find a Numenera fan community online and chances are you will find her there as well.
Do I have a bad attitude and very unlikely to trust others? I'll admit to that. When I get aggravated about something my attitude goes to hell rather quickly. I've also been screwed over and lied to by a few game companies out there (7th Circle comes to mind immediately) so I'm hesitant to trust any of them. And yes most of them appeared to be all about the best of intentions and sincerely caring.
Now on to Numenera fulfillment updates.
Finally a press release from Monte Cook Games about it. Here is a quick link:
Things I find interesting here. The fact that retailers, distributors, game shops and even Amazon got their books a couple of weeks ahead of the backers is referred to as a hiccup that occurred in the fulfillment process. 341 orders with no address, mine better not be in that pile because I was told they had my address over two weeks ago. That there will be more Kickstarters for other games from MCG... no thanks I'll wait and get it cheaper from Amazon if its something that I really want.
More folks overseas are talking about getting their books finally. Now if only the fulfillment company could figure out where Missouri is.
A 'Your Welcome' to the backers who have contacted and thanked me from making some noise on this issue.
I did not do these blog posts with the intent of doing some sort of damage to MCG as one person suggested. I doubt anything I say could have much affect on their bottom line. IF I was doing that then why haven't I linked to these blog posts in the various Numenera communities? I only linked back to this from my own G+, Twitter and Facebook accounts. The only community I mentioned them in was the Kickstarter one on G+ that I moderate and now co-own.
Now then hopefully my book will actually reach me. Then I can trade it off for something I want because currently I have nothing but a bad taste in my mouth because of it.
