DCC preorder : international shipping ?

Post by Antoine_F »

Hi,

I am sorry if this was already covered but I can't find how to preorder the DCC RPG with international shipping.
Is there an option in the store or can I add the additional cost manualy in paypal ?

Thanks for the answer. I can wait to order my gold foil copy !

Best,
Antoine

I don't have an answer for you, but I have been investigating obtaining the limited edition pre-order bundle in the UK. So far Gameslore have very courteously replied to let me know that they would not be able to do this as it would not be profitable for them. Leisure Games have making inquiries (most likely of Esdevium Games, the UK's main (only?) RPG distributor) so I await their reply.

I suspect we international people will have to purchase online, and stomach the relatively high shipping charge (the price of an adventure module or supplement).

Regarding ordering the gold foil version through international retailers: the gold foil edition is being distributed through our normal distributors, which includes Esdevium and other Uk distributors. Your local retailer should be able to place a pre-order at their usual terms from their distributor. We just listed the item with distributors so their may be some confusion around it being a new item. Please tell them to order sku GMG5007F and let me know if you have any issues. (Note: the gold foil edition is being printed in limited quantities so if they want to gee one for you, make sure they put in their pre-order!)

As for international shipping if you do want to order direct, it is your lucky day: go ahead and place an order with the existing $4 shipping charge. Long story short I would be happy to subsidize a bit of enthusiasm early on, and it's easier than dealing with some of Paypal's quirks. So: $4 international shipping. Spread the word. :)

That's a very generous offer Joseph and much appreciated. To be fair to Leisure Games, I'll wait for their reply just in case they can match it (which would allow me to support a bricks and mortar shop). However, I suspect your deal will be the winner.

Now I'm off to spread the word.

This made buying the game affordable, at least for me. My dad refused to pay 70$ on an rpg :( but with 55$, I convinced him :P

How exactly do I do this? I've clicked on Italy in the checkout page, and it added a whooping 20$ :( Do I have to select US, then indicate an Italian address to receive it?

It's interesting, for me, there's no option to calculate shipping, just a flat $4 charge with the normal DCC RPG book. The only matter is that I won't have enough spare money till the middle of March, this is why I have to know how long this lasts.

OMG! :shock:

International order placed! :D


Thank you Joseph, it's very kind of you.


I'll follow with interest the future DCC modules publication. There is some idea about the adventure modules output rate on the market? Each one, two, three months?

Thank you,
Bone

Well, the first 8 modules are written with cover art complete. They'll be going to editing shortly. Actually, Mike Curtis just finished his next draft so I guess 9 are written, now that I think about it. As for the speed of release, probably 2-3 a month early on to give people lots of adventures to use, then it will slow to 1-2 a month after a while.

They will stock Goodman Games items in the normal manner. However, I've already contacted Gameslore and they have told me they can't/won't handle the pre-order. Leisure Games have told me they are making inquiries, but have not come back to me yet on the result of those. I've held off until now, but have decided to pull the trigger on the limited edition pre-order offer direct from GG at the $4 shipping rate.

$4 shipping rate? That's really good value.

Count me in!

I don't know how to get that 5 dollar deal either. Even when I go to the paypal page it says $20.

Ah, never mind, when I actually log in on paypal, the shipping changes to $5 like arcane magic hath been worked on it.

Unfortunately, Paypal is saying it can't ship to Japan and won't let me choose a new country. Well, that's a problem between me and them that I'll have to sort out.

I had a bit of a hard time too but I just did it. :D You need to follow the correct link (see ealier post). You will know you are in the correct place if the shipping cost does not have a drop down menu for choosing countries beside it.

Also, the first time I was buying DCC RPG but it did not say "includes DCC66.5 with pre-order" even though the item number (Item # GMG5070) was the same. I doubt it makes a difference but my luck stat right now is 4 (My gods and I disagree on a few things) so I did not want to push it.
