All Praise Khazan! – Deluxe T&T has been Printed!

By Steven S. Crompton

Friday, August 14, 2015: Today the Deluxe Tunnels & Trolls softcover rules were back from the printers!  As soon as we heard the news Ken St Andre and myself got together and headed straight over to the printers and picked up a bunch of the books. Having the creator of T&T there to see his new book was too good an opportunity to miss, so I took a couple of photos.

Ken St Andre takes a look at the very first  printed copy of dT&T seen by anyone outside of the printing company!

As mentioned previously the full book is exactly an inch thick.  It also weighs a little over 2lbs. Neither Ken nor I could resist grinning like a pair of Cheshire Cats finding a really great piece of cheese.  The book is all shiny and UV coated  – looks great.  The first thing I checked was to make sure all the pages where in proper order.  Misplaced page signatures is the most common printing error with a large book.  I’m happy to report all the pages are there and in order!

This is two of the three palates that held the books.  You'll never see more boxes of T&T in one place.

The vast majority of the books we picked up will end up at Flying Buffalo so shipping can begin. On Monday the rest of the books still at the printers will get over to Flying Buffalo so the shipping process will continue uninterrupted.

After he and I loaded up the boxes in our cars, we went to a nearby restaurant to look over the finished book and celebrate the completion of over two years of hard work!  Of course there’s still work to do – as now Flying Buffalo has to get these all shipped out to you guys!  At least now you know they are really here!

And a few weeks ago, a  large stack of printed pages was sent to the Hardcover Bindery company, so that they can put together the Hardcover books.  We also have the GM screen and the Flash-drives being made as well, so we’ll also be shipping those out very shortly.  (We are talking days at this point.)  The good news is we’ll still be able to ship a great quantity of the softcover books right away. We start tomorrow!

    Ack, Steve took my picture without my hat on! Pay no heed, friends, that’s not really Ken up there. The real Ken wears a hat.

    Where do I order the book? The flying buffalo page has not been updated in ages!

    Hi Randall – You can’t order the book YET. Once we get the book shipping to the Kickstarter backers (who paid for their books quite some time ago) THEN it will be available from Flying Buffalo, Ken St Andre and at Amazon. We’ll let you all know as soon as it IS available!

  4. Excellent!

    I have Kickstarter copies coming to me, but I want to buy a hardcover. I’ll be keeping an eye out.

  5. Great! Glad (and a bit relieved) to see those pallets of books waiting to go out.

    I will now be keeping an eye out for Ken’s presence at NTRPG Con. Gotta get a sig!

    I know the Kickstarter backers get thiers first (and more than rightly so), but when do the Gen Con preorders go out? 😉
