Order of preorder..?

Hi all.

I'm just wondering, Chaosium has stated that preordering the BRP book is now available from their website. But, if one have already done that (as I have) from Steve Jackson Games' website, what preorder goes first??

I know this is probably the wrong place for this question, but maybe I'll get lucky and get an answer from the Chaosium people here also? Otherwise I'll get in touch with them there.

Happy with all answers on this one.

I don't know, but I would suspect that it'll ship faster from Chaosium.

I preordered from Amazon.com, and not only got the Super Saver Shipping, but also an extra $2 off. And Amazon delivers much faster than Chaosium. I'm sure Amazon has a good supply on hand by the shipping date, which is supposed to be tomorrow.

I did order one thing from Steve Jackson games and found that the shipping was pretty fast, there, too. I had to wait "forever" for a monograph from Chaosium.

hi guys

this specifically relates to dredj"s assertion that BRP ships from us amazon on or around the 4th june. However the earliest available date i could find on the site was june 20th? what gives?

I'm just going by the date that Amazon.com, U.S. has down. I very recently "preordered" another item from Amazon that's still in preorder stage, despite the fact that it was shipped to me 2 days ago. So Amazon is not proving to be very reliable a source for shipping dates.

Chaosium says the book will be released late in the month, but doesn't give a date.

hi dredj

where do they have that date? i can't find it anywhere? you gotta link?

If you preorder it and look in your account, you should see it. It's not on the product page but in your account after you order it as a shipping estimate. It might have changed since it was supposed to ship on the 3rd. But mine still shows as June 3rd.
