SALE at Chaosium!

Postage is a tough option. The regular books you can probably pick up from a local rpg store, but the Monographs, being only available from Chasoium, require some tough decision making at $40+ minimum for international postage. It does make me think twice before commiting to a purchase. Which is a shame, because I do want to give chaosium some of my money, but when the postage is more than the book...

And furthermore every time I go to the Chaosium site I get the following warning screen:

Since Chaosiums last security cock up cost me £1,000 on my credit card ( luckily refunded ) coupled to the shipping costs I very much doubt I'll be buying from them, which is a great shame as there's loads of monographs I'd like.

You're not kidding. When I saw this thread I thought, "Cool, now is a good time to pick up Mythic Iceland!" So I went to Chaosium's site, put it in my cart, and calculated the shipping. Even with the the sale and the cheapest shipping option for me, which is take-forever/no-tracking-number U.S. parcel post, the total price is higher than what it costs me to order the book from Amazon with 2-day shipping included (I have that "Amazon Prime" thing).

So I ordered it from Amazon for cheaper and should have it on Wednesday.

There used to be free shipping on large orders but it looks like Chaosium no longer offer this. :(

Interestingly my latest email shot from Chaosium says that the "I WANT FREE SHIPPING" voucher STILL works for overseas orders of $125+ and is till automatically applied to US orders of $60+

Cheers,

Nick

Indeed, there's a bunch of stuff I still haven't picked up, like Mythic Iceland, Celestial Empires, Swords of Cydonia, heck, I still need to pick up The Laundry.

I should hope that with Chaosium's move to a new server they would have taken care of any security issues they were having...

For the record (and because someone recently enquired), please note the Chaosium shipping offers described above expired years ago and are no longer valid. We don't have a 'I WANT FREE SHIPPING' secret coupon code or voucher any more.
