Core book beta discount code...

Postby Illion » Mon May 16, 2016 6:05 pm

Hi,

Sorry if I missed this or the email ... I cant find the information in the forums.

Has a voucher code for the beta buyers been sent out..? If I missed it where do I get mine..? I had an email for the PDF version.
Thanks for any help...

Ill.

I don't think there is a deadline. If you haven't received it, ask the DriveTru support. They will send it.

Is there a discount code for the hardcopy?

If you were a beta tester there was a discount for both.
The pdf code came from mongoose though, not drive through.

I was indeed a beta tester. I guess I need to contact Mongoose directly.

We'll be sorting this out this week - please note that the voucher will be for the POD version, not the standard print version - and we will be sending the voucher out with a request for you to get the standard print version instead, because it will look a lot nicer :)

Just to let everyone know, vouchers for the POD edition of the book are currently being sent out to all Beta Playtesters - this process is likely to take an hour or so, so don't panic if you have not seen yours just yet.

One small point I wanted to raise - we are (of course!) more than happy for everyone to avail themselves of this offer, but please be aware that, despite the leaps and bounds made in POD technology over the past few years, there is a difference in quality between this edition and the 'proper' printed edition. If you want to see Traveller at its best, we would always recommend the main printed edition.

If, on the other hand, you are looking for a hardcopy for your players, you will find it just perfect!

I'll be buying the 'proper' printed edition. The only question is - how many copies :)

I've not seen a discount code email. Will it come from Mongoose or DTRPG?

DriveThru, but if you haven't received it already, send them a ticket via the support system. They will send it to you.

I am severely disappointed that the $20 voucher is only for the POD version - and admittedly inferior quality product to the normal printed version. I got my POD version in the mail today, and it is not as nice as the normally printed version.

I heard about the beta playtest from Planet Mongoose here: http://blog.mongoosepublishing.co.uk/?p=798.

It states nothing about the $20 voucher being only applicable to a POD version. I was promised "A $20 voucher to be redeemed against the final Core Rulebook."

Not "a $20 voucher to be redeemed against a POD version of the final Core Rulebook."

I feel that I have I been sold an inferior product, merely because I was willing to hand over money to Mongoose before the actual product had been produced.

I am not a satisfied customer.

The voucher for the playtest was always for the PDF version of the final book - we added the POD option due to requests made from the playtesters.

I am afraid we just cannot carry it over to the retail printed version, but we wanted to provide at least the option for a hardcopy.

I got my voucher and got both the PDF and PoD version from DTRPG. It was my first PoD product and as Matt stated, it just isn't the same as the retail. So I am probably going to give it to my players and get the good one.

The only question I have is will the retail version be available through our FLGS or is it only available directly from Mongoose?

Bummer... But it did take 4 tries to get to the right place through them. But Matt said he'd sort it out earlier.... I just had already started the process with DriveThru/RpgNow when I got his answer....
