  1. Has anyone who's ordered it from Chaosium received theirs yet in the US? According the tracking information I was sent, as well as a talking to an agent from USPS they said the info was sent to them on December 15, but not the package itself (it says "Shipment Received, Package Acceptance Pending").
  2. New update on the Malleus Monstrorum's physical release: https://www.chaosium.com/blogcovid19-shipping-and-fulfilment-update-december-7th-malleus-monstrorum-news/ When they say later this week I take it they mean Thursday or Friday.
  3. The Ancient Ones were mentioned in Cthulhu Dark Ages' mythos section as mainly what they and other gods could be interpreted as by other religions and cultures of that the time period, but they did not receive an entry in the current Malleus Monstrorum. Granted a number of creatures and deities didn't make the final cut in the MM, but it does seem odd to mention them and than not give them an entry. They were mentioned in Tawil at'Umr's (an avatar of Yog-Sothoth) entry, as speculation that might be an evolution of the Outer Gods and Old Ones. So if you were to include them in a campaign during
  4. According to thegamer.com the regular edition will be $89.99, minus what you paid with the PDF that comes out to $50. It also said there will be a leatherette edition which will cost $199.99, minus the PDF price that comes out to $160. I'm not certain about the shipping price, but I used two separate slip cases (Masks of Nyarlathotep and the Call of Cthulhu Starter Set) to try and estimate the shipping price which might be between $9-$12.
  5. Just in case no one read the recent blog post: Here is the link to the blog post: https://www.chaosium.com/blogcovid19-shipping-and-fulfilment-update-november-6th/
  6. No offense, but at first its release date was October, then early November, then late November, now mid December, and by the time we reach the date you mentioned the book will likely be pushed back again to sometime in February 2021. When did everything begin to fall apart between the PDF's release in June to October. It seems difficult to blame to the ongoing pandemic since the country where the book is printed in, Lithuania has only had 14,824 cases.
  7. I was just wondering how soon exactly? Based on what Rick said earlier on October 11th it seems like we are still three weeks away from it arriving to the US warehouses. I don't mean to pester anyone about its release date, I've been really looking forward to this book ever since it was announced and my anticipation for it only grew when I bought the PDF for it.
  8. Awhile ago someone on reddit showed an email saying that the Malleus Monstrorum was going to be released in early November, but based on what you said it seems like it's going released near the end of November. No offense, but for an anticipated release such as this it seems like Chaosium should be using their blog or social media accounts to keep customers posted as to status of a product's projected release date, including date changes and the reason for it.
  9. I actually emailed Chaosium for a potential release date in October and they told me the release date has been pushed back to early November due to a freight issue. They said it could come earlier, but they didn't really delve into any details.
  10. In regards to POD CoC titles will you also be including previous editions of books that have been made for the 7th edition? Like the first edition of Terror Australis, some creatures featured in the bestiary of that edition (such as the Ninya) did not have an entry in the 2nd edition (they were mentioned in the Dreamtime songs though). As well as the second edition of Cthulhu by Gaslight, which contained an interesting section on using time travel in CoC.
  11. Some more artwork was posted on Chaosium's twitter page on Nov. 5 for the Winder Walker, Spawn of Hastur, Devil Creeper, and Gnoph-Keh: https://twitter.com/Chaosium_Inc/status/1191711299656282112
