BHP Website Down Until Monday

I am doing a clean install of the BHP website. It should be back by Monday.

Delving Deeper Boxed Sets
Only handful remain left to ship - most are large international orders.
The materials for the 2nd shipment are almost complete. All that is left is to finish the final layout of the last product and I am shooting for completion on Monday. It will take me a week or two to get them printed up, but I will start shipping them as soon as they are ready.

Appendix N Adventures (Kickstarter & Subscription)
The 1st shipment continues to go out.

We are working towards having all of the remaining print rewards ready to start shipping on May 1. Lots of materials are now out at the printers and I will post pictures as they arrive.

The plan is to begin final shipping the first week of May, making sure those kickstarter supporters who paid extra postage get theirs in the first batches to go out as well as those who might end up not having received the first shipment next and then everyone else.

For those Annual subscribers do not have their first shipment by May 1 will receive all of the modules together.

It is my hope and goal that everyone will have all of their print rewards before the 2nd anniversary of the funding of this kickstarter project.

Haldo Made His Saving Throw

Copyright 2014 by Reece Ambrose

Over the last two and a half years, I have had a number of personal and professional difficulties. I believe that much of it is well-known in our gaming circles, so I won’t list them again. During that time period, I made many mistakes and some very poor business decisions too. 

However, it now looks like BHP will be able to make it through these failures and will continue to be able to produce quality gaming materials on into the future. While it is still a painfully slow process, nearly every Delving Deeper Boxed Set order has been shipped and Appendix N Adventures Kickstarter and Subscription products are shipping too.

I realize that many people are still very angry with me and some have decided to never give BHP a try again in the future. I understand how they feel and all I can do is what I am already doing - trying to ship the very best products to folks as fast as I can. It is very encouraging to me that the majority of people receiving these new products find them to be of good quality. 

I expect that BHP will continue to be focused upon finishing up the Delving Deeper Boxed Set (our part) and the Appendix N Adventures projects over the coming months. But once they are completed, I have many other projects in the works. NONE of them involves crowd sourcing or doing my own shipping. BHP has good equipment, plenty of workspace and I have a renewed sense of purpose.

But to put it all into gaming terms:

Haldo (our namesake halfling), having fallen into a spiked pit, has made his saving throw. Injured almost to the point of death, he has climbed his way out of the pit. After tending to his wounds, he has planted a warning sign so that others may see his mistake(s) and and avoid them. Soon, he will get back up and return to the adventure. But this time, he will do so armed with the wisdom of experience.
