Anyone in the UK recieved their copy of VUK yet?
« on: October 19, 2018, 04:00:59 PM »
 
 I was wondering if anyone in the UK had recieved their copy of VUK yet, had a recent item eaten by the postal service recently, so just wanted to know if I should be concerned yet.

This is why I didn't back it. I decided to wait for a EU/UK source.

I received mine in Finland about a week ago. Apparently it was shipped on September 20th via surface mail. Various earlier orders from Canada with that method have taken anywhere between one week or two months. According to the KS updates, shipping was only concluded about two weeks ago so yours can definitely be still on its way.

For reasons, mine was almost a "book only" shipment, thus it had a good chance of being on the faster side.

By the way, I really want to mention how much I appreciate the large and clear fonts used in the book. Many other publishers in Victorian/pulp/CoC genres absolutely want to go for a "moody style", which means tiny, near-illegible fonts, printed with poor contrast (brown on brown, grey on grey, smudgy background art etc). My eyesight isn't that bad, but sometimes it's quite painful to read those books in poorly lit gaming halls. If I already struggle to comprehend some parts of the rules, it doesn't help if the physical reading process itself is made unnecessarily hard. Full A4 size helps too. I hope other publishers who might be reading this are taking a hint. :)

So...I've managed to observe that I could read the rules, given some time to actually do it. As I haven't had any recently, no comment on the updated rules yet. Sorry. :P

Still waiting in UK as well here and, like others, the pledge manager hasnít been updated to shipped.  My SA pledge took a while to arrive and had a hefty customs bill despite the fact it was meant to be EU friendly (Ship Naked claim they offer EU friendly shipping but do so by claiming all parcels are worth nothing to try and get under the threshold, this frequently doesnít work and can lead to long delays whilst customs go through the parcel to try and work out how much itís actually worth).

Same here, no confirmation in backerkit and waiting. Let's see how long it takes.

 Cheers for the replies, just wait & see I guess (I don't remember SA 2 taking too long but we'll see).

Nope, Fortunately not. The package contents were described as Book + T shirt + Toys (approximately 50 pieces), I guess customs didn't find that interesting at all.
