All I can say is to keep checking with them. I have no visibility into Diamond's operating procedure (I worked there more than a decade ago), but I know they can be a bit inflexible, to it may take them time to catch up. If your game store deals with Alliance, ACD, or PSI, they may have better luck with them. Sorry it's been a pain for you.

Is the book physically out there? This website says March 3; Amazon says March 12. I ordered it on Amazon and it's still not available, and I can't tell whether or not it's available here. Just trying to get an idea about timing.

I got mine from my flgs about 2 weeks ago, so they're physically out there. Amazon is always weeks behind everyone else. I see posts like yours every time a new book comes out and Amazon doesn't have it yet. Slow uptake is the price you pay for the big discount. If you check other online retailers, like frp games you'll see they've had them in stock for some time.

Thanks for the info. It's a bummer because I wanted to bring it on a trip on going on, but I have to admit that the more than 50% discount was way too good to pass up.

Okay, I've got a bit of a complaint.

While I'm very pleased with the actual book itself, the way in which they are packed is an absolute disaster.
I'm not sure if anyone else is bothered by this, but to me it seems like the company that ships them use packing peanuts of a very bad quality.
These things leave foam dust everywhere, including in the book itself. I think I had to spend half an hour cleaning it, because it had even gotten between the pages.
This has happened to me before when I ordered the Supernatural Handbook and if the shipping firm isn't going to change to a better quality of packing peanuts, I think I'm going to stop ordering the books from Green Ronin directly.

I'm sorry, but this really bothers me. They just create too much of a mess to clean up.

Ramsey (and others concerned about packing peanuts):

I just heard back from the fulfillment guys and it seems that you must have been one of the last orders to be filled with peanuts. They've just recently done away with peanuts and have moved to air-pillows for their packaging.

I told them our mail order customers would be happy to hear this news. :D

That's very good news.
I'm glad to see you guys take customer complaints very seriously.

And I FINALLY got my copy, perhaps the ONLY copy that was for sale in all of Ontario, given how fruitless my searching for it has been

Air pillows are decidedly easier to clean up, I've found.
