The only poster person in Vancouver wanted to just swing by and pick his Hiver schematic up in person. We haven't heard back from him yet.

P.S. We have also sent out all of the boxes which just have a single mug as of today! Quite a lot of them, and they went out to seventeen countries world-wide. :)

I ran across this quote the other day about the Lore books (found here):

There was a follow up post in the thread I linked to (found here) that has more information:

Erinys on May 14, 2013 wrote:Sorry for the delayed response, under_khan. The books have been delayed by my personal health issues throughout the spring. I've been struggling with crippling pain since the end of February and have been unable to work much. It's only been in the last couple of weeks that I've had any real progress toward recovery.

While I am still trying to get back on my feet and "back to normal" (to the degree that I was ever normal, anyway :P), I've reached out to a professional book designer to help complete the difficult tasks in lay-out and design of these volumes. Since so much of the text was already written and so many of the illustrations were already ready, I'm optimistic that we'll have the proofs for both books completed by the middle of June at the latest.

There will still be some hurdles to overcome in the proofing and printing stages, but if all goes well at the printer, all our books should be signed, sealed and delivered to all corners of the globe by the end of July or the first week of August at the latest. Even taking into account some of the hijinks we've been through with Canada Post and their international deliveries.

I will post an update for our campaign supporters that contains this information as well, but I wanted to log in here first and thank all of you for your patience. I am truly sorry to be late in delivering these books, but my commitment to their quality is still strong, and I look forward to your feedback when you have them in hand.

Thanks,

Arinn

Thank you very much for digging that up Nspace. I'll check back in August.

Hope Arinn is feeling better.

New Update at Last!

Post by Erinys » Sat Aug 03, 2013 9:43 am

Latest update from the Sword of the Stars: The Pit crowd-funding campaign, about the production of our long-delayed Lore books. We are back on track at last! :) And I've posted a few teaser images, double-page spreads from the rough-draft lay-out of chapter one.

Hope you enjoy them, and thanks so much for your patience and support. :)

The latest info I have seen on the lore book is here, Update 14 from October 28th. The relevant quote:

The monster-huge Sword of the Stars Lore Book is in the final stages of production and about to enter the print-proofing phase: we will update both this campaign and The Pit campaign with some info about the final chapters (including the extra chapter that's been added) soon.


A bit more in-depth info can be found here, from October 17th:
Erinys wrote:I would like to have a final galley ready to be printed by the end of October, and hope to be through all the proofing of the printed book and even shipping signed copies by the end of November at the latest. But honestly I am not sure. I have never done this before and everything is much harder than I thought it would be. Publishing a huge illustrated book is NOT a one-person job, apparently, and even with two people it's slower than I hoped!
