Guys~

     Just wondering... is OBAM out yet? I just came back to the forums after a couple of months break for school finals and such, and have been out of the loop. Is it published yet, or is there another release date?

I'm dying to find out what is up for OBaM.  Players chomping at the bit, I have groups of them demonstrating outside my apartment building. Next will be the torches and pitchforks. Please help me.  a PDF distribution would be great. Anything to keep the ravening hordes placated.

Yeah, I've $20 burning a hole in my pocket as well. My fantasy game is ready to re-commence with RoS as its game system, if only I had OBAM to guide me through man-beast combat.

A pdf is fine. I'll get the hard-bound later.

Honestly...

I don't think we'll be doing much through regular distributors. They don't pay on time (if at all), and no money = bigger debt = dead driftwood.

We'll be doing all direct sales initially, though some retailers may have it, too.

Will that also include shipping the hard copy to individuals in the UK?  I know that when the core book came out you were accepting payments via Paypal - will you be doing this again for OBAM?  If so, then please put me down for two!

Thanks

Will you only take Paypal?  Unfortunately I refuse to have a Paypal account because they claim the power to arbitrarily freeze your assets with no legal oversight, unlike banks which are heavily regulated.  They regularly abuse this legal loophole against people who haven't been proven to have done anything wrong.  This means that if Paypal is the only way to get OBAM, I can't get it.  :(

Ummm...how is that an issue unless you plan on carrying large paypal balances.  The only way to have a large paypal balance is if you're a seller and you're not sweeping your paypal account to checking or if you voluntarily add money to the pay pal mmkt.

Most paypal users have a 0 balance because the charges just get directly debited from your checking account or charged to a credit card.

Zero balance = who cares if they freeze it?

Seems like a pretty silly principal to inconvenience yourself over, especially since banks are not nearly as "highly regulated" in whose accounts they freeze as you might think.  In fact, since the Patriot Act banks pretty much operate on a freeze first, ask questions later policy.

Sorry, I shouldn't have said the specifics as it's not on topic.  The main question is:  Do you accept any other forms of payment?  That's all.

So, thias won't be a pdf, but a hard copy?

Either way is fine; time is my big crisis right now, but if I had the choice, I'd prefer hardcopy.

From the phrasing, I think it will be .pdf at first, with hardcopies available by GenCon for direct purchase there, and online order. Jake will of course clarify.
