Despite my level of butt-hurtedness over not receiving the Shrapnel magazine link yet, I'm still super pumped about the kickstarter and I too look forward to an Urbie Plushie update!

Same here, but I've gotten every other email so far so I ain't too worried.
If I don't get it by next week, though, that'd be another story.

As a late backer via CrowdOx (Star Commander level), I have received Digital Reward 05 (Proliferation Cycle) and the bonus "Redemption and Malice" story, while also anticipating the new edition of Shrapnel that has apparently started to be mailed out. Digital Rewards 06-13 are naturally released when finished, but Digital Rewards 01-04 are not yet delivered.

I reckon the success of the campaign has added heaps of work for TPTB. I'd rather it be done right rather than rushed. The digital rewards are fantastic, but just the cherry on the top of some really rad models, dice, and challenge coins.

I just got the e-mail link for Shrapnel, so I can confirm that they're still going out.

I am pleased that folks are still getting their links, and at the same time frustrated as I head into a weekend where I'll be with my children and family, unable to read it even if I got it.  Hah.

+1 to that, Brother!

If I do get time to read it'll be sometime after 9:30pm ... my brain is already on shutdown mode, awake, but not quite reliable. Especially for reading.

Woot! it just popped in ... skimmed thru and stopped at the last few lines on page 73-4.  Now, I really want to read more -- when I'm less tired.

I'm seriously considering doing another pledge just to get more urbanmechs.
Good news is the lab boys say the symptoms of asbestos poisoning show an immediate latency of 44.6 years. So if you're thirty or over you're laughing. Worst case scenario you miss out on a few rounds of canasta, plus you've forwarded the cause of science by three centuries. I punch those numbers into my calculator, it makes a happy face.

TBH, I missed that SHRAPNEL was part of the KS.

What a pleasant surprise.  :) I'm pretty impressed.  :thumbsup:

And I really dig Michael J. Ciaravella's write up on the ELH's 11th Recon Bn.
"Halfway down the trail to Hell,
In a shady meadow green
Are the Souls of all dead Troopers camped,
Near a good old-time canteen.
And this eternal resting place
Is known as Fiddlers’ Green...."

That doesn’t sound right!  :D

I have very much enjoyed Shrapnel, the stories have all been interesting. Good job everyone.

Either my brain's fried and I can't find the extremely obvious, or else someone stole my button.

Where's my button, Lebowski?!
