So, is it time to worry yet..? I per-ordered the book and still haven’t received it. How about other Swedish Travellers, have you guys gotten yours yet?
Yes, drop me a line at msprange@mongoosepublishing.com and we will see what has happened.

Book not arrived yet, I'm awaiting the weekend before sending you another email (still reading the PDFs from Drivethru's Black Lives Matter bundles :lol: ), but if this happens with Deepnight Revelation (six books), maybe you MUST consider use tracked mail for orders from Europe :wink: ...

Writing this as 'add-on' to my emails: no book whatsoever, and as usual my local Post Office knows nothing useful/can't help. I'm now Worried™ :cry:...

Can anyone that has this please confirm how much information there is about Thalassa? My players are heading that way and wanted to know if there’s any good info please.

Thalassa in the Trojan Reach? Behind the Claw focuses on Deneb and Spinward Marches, so the coverage on Thalassa is, well, kinda none at all...

None of the Thalassas known are in Deneb or Spinward Marches sectors, so what has been said counts for all of them: https://wiki.travellerrpg.com/Thalassa_(world)

Damn you’re right. I thought it was Dpres sector not Deneb.

Alas, there is help for you in Pirates of Drinax Vol. 2, which covers all of the Trojan Reach sector, including Dpres subsector and has a full column (i. e. 1/2 page) on Thalassa.

Has the book arrived in Germany already? I pre-ordered it and it hasn't even arrived yet. I am used to long delivery times from the UK, though, and 4-6 weeks aren't that unusual.

I pre-ordered my copy when they first advertised it but still haven't received my hard copy. Their website says they shipped it but there's no tracking information and I certainly never received it. I've emailed msprange requesting assistance. I hope they get back to me quickly.

Has anyone that pre-ordered Behind the Claw with the Element Class Cruisers kickstarter had their copy yet? Still not had mine in the uk. I emailed Matt and he sent the drivethru code for my pdf a few weeks ago, but I don't know if the hardcopies have been posted out yet.

I've preordered it and received the pdf a while back, but I haven't received the physical book yet. Should it have arrived in Sweden by now?
The physical book arrived earlier this week! Great produkt! :D

Thank you :D , "book" arrived today, but it's a work of art/love not a mere book :mrgreen: . HOWEVER the really impressive thing (strictly from my viewpoint, of course :P ) is the fact this mail order arrived exactly as scheduled, :o survived :o the postal black hole at Lonate Pozzolo IT with no delays, damages and/or added tariffs and arrived in the morning while I was at home :shock: :!: :shock: .
I almost fainted when the mailman gave me the box, the Force is with me, the Computer is my friend, I'm... I... *THUD* *faints*

I bought the PDF recently and enjoy what I see. Just yesterday, my local game shop sent notice they just received a copy! I much prefer hardcopy so I have a quest today since it's my day off. Great reason to get out of the house.

My, my. I went to pick up a hard copy of Behind the Claw at my game shop. The proprietor said it came in Friday (the day the store newsletter announced it being there) and sold on Saturday. I asked to order a copy. Proprietor said they did order one but someone else had reserved it! They, at that moment, called the New York main store and asked to send an extra copy with the shipment. It's on it's way for Tuesday but I have to wait to get down on Thursday. I'll wait.

Oh, those were the last two copies at the main store.

I got 'Behind the Claw' as a birthday present from my gaming group. They ordered it from a gaming shop here in Germany. Unfortunately one of the maps was missing (the one in the front), which was a real bummer. Got the PDF though (only the book, not the maps though, again). Much to read now...

I can report that Matt Sprange was VERY helpful and sent a book immediately. He has also been very good about follow-up. Bravo!
