And So It Begins...

The first half dozen copies of the B/X Companion were shipped from the post office about 1 minute before closing.

Congrats to the folks getting, I sure hope you enjoy it. I know I get a thrill every time I read it, and I wrote the damn thing! I still think it's pretty damn inspiring and anyone interested in high level B/X (or OD&D or Labyrinth Lord) should probably take a look.

To the folks that didn't get your order in before I got to the post office...sorry. I will be making another run (with another stack of books) tomorrow. Depending on where you're living, you should get 'em in a few days.

WHICH REMINDS ME: If you do NOT live in the USA or Canada, please EMAIL ME before you make a purchase. Shipping and handling is higher to other parts of the world (the UK is $9), so email me FIRST and we'll work something out.

To everyone who's helping make me feel like a real, live author by exchanging your hard currency for my written imagination:

Thank you.

Words cannot express how much gratitude I have for all of you. Boy, I sure hope you find it worth the read.


  1. I will be ordering my copy Friday, I look forward to seeing your work.

  2. Just ordered a copy! Can't wait to get it!

  3. @ DuBeers: I look forward to fulfilling your order! Seriously!

    @ Zarnoff: : )

  4. Dang, if i'd known they were ready to go, I would have ordered yesterday morning! Just put my order in, looking forward to getting my own BX Companion. Awesome.

  5. @ Pal:

    Dude, I am not f'ing around...if I can sell out the whole print run by the end of the weekend, I'll order a new one Monday. I ain't got shit to do this weekend, except washing the beagles, so I don't mind making mail runs.

  6. Hey, congrats on finally birthing the companion! I've spent a lot of cash lately on other gaming stuff, namely the Lamentations of the Flame Princess box set (that one pretty much tapped me out on my gaming budget for a while!). I was wondering if you have a bit of preview material as to what's in the companion. If so, can you tell me where I can look? Ultimately, I think I will eventually buy a copy, but it may be a while before I can muster up the funds. Again, congrats!

  7. @ Drance: I totally understand. And Raggi's stuff is awesome, so I definitely don't fault you for your choice of purchase! Thanks for the congrats, and I'll try to set aside a copy for your eventual purchase. Really!
