Even yet more books

My thanks to Fred for saving me the trouble of coming up with a title. It really is the hardest part.

Anywho, if you read the comments from my last post you probably already guessed that I got my shipment from IPR. It's quite the selection. There was Spirit of the Century and Don't Rest Your Head, which I was expecting, but also a massive Dawning Star book, Panty Explosion, Zorcerer of Zo, Mortal Coil, Cold City, Passages, and Agon. Certainly my most diverse shipment to date.

As we enter the last week for submissions things are really starting to pick up. I've redoubled my efforts reading (and actually put a campaign on hold to do so), there has been more discussion of favorite products among the judges, and of course the last minute entries pour in.

In addition to the box from IPR I also a few more entries. My copy of Burning Empires came in a week or so ago, but I forgot to enter it. Tabletop Adventures sent Against the Darkness, Mother of All Treasure Tables, and a selection of PDFs. Dog House Rules sent in a Cd of PDFs. Word Mill Publishing sent in Mythic Game Master Emulator. Lone Wolf sent in Hero Lab. Last but not least, Black Industries sent in another WFRP book and three novels for consideration in the new regalia catagory.

It's been a busy couple of days.

As a side note, I think I managed to hit all of the major shipping centers today. The shipments came from FedEx, DHL, UPS, and the USPS. My neighbors must think I'm having some sort of convention.

Anywho, I have a lot of interesting books to read, and Tivo is recording the season finale of Lost as I type, so I had better get a move on.

Yay, you got my games!

Hopefully you enjoy. :)

All of the US based judges have gotten their IPR shipments by this point; the Canadian ones have hit a few speedbumps (though I know one attempted delivery but no one was there to receive it).

Hopefully the stuff gets to Canada easier than the stuff from Canada got here. One shipment I got was caught up in customs for weeks.

Everything looks great. I started on Spirit of the Century this morning.

Man I'm digging some pulp action.

Yeah, it's been a good year for pulp. I'm happy Evil Hat's managed to be a part of it. :)

And I'm with you on the Canada stuff -- fingers crossed.
