We returned to Canada on Monday afternoon from the Cold Wars 2020 gaming convention down in Lancaster, PA, USA. We had a great time at the convention and ran lots of Heavy Gear Blitz demo games using the new 3rd edition rules. A big thank you to Joe Johnson and John Tinney for helping out running games and to all those who joined us at Cold Wars.
The government of Canada has asked all Canadians returning from the USA or other foreign destinations to do a voluntary 14 day self quarantine upon their return. For that reason the Dream Pod 9 office will be closed from today thru Tuesday March 31st, 2020. And even though we feel well now, we won’t be casting pewter or packing up orders or backer reward packages at the office until our return on April 1st, as an over abundance of caution on our side for safety of our customers. The DP9 March Madness Sale 2020 continues and resin minis and parts for orders will be cast up by Fusion Models at their location here in Montreal. Our next planned weekly shipping with US Post is going to be on Friday, April 3rd, 2020. When we’ll drive down to the USA and drop off the boxes at the rear loading dock area of the post office with our shipments bar code sheet, so we don’t have to go inside with other people. That way when we return to Canada we won’t need to self quarantine again.
During the next 2 weeks I’ll be working at home on the layout of the new HGB 3rd Edition Rulebook, with the goal of having if ready for ebook release on Friday April 10th or earlier. Then we’ll give everyone a week to post their comments and typos on a special DP9 Forum thread. Before I enter the corrections and send the book off to the printers to get a proof copy made. If the color all looks good, then we’ll place the order with the printer and the rulebooks should be printed and back around mid-May. After that we’ll be able to start packing and shipping our Kickstarter reward packages that need copies of the rulebook.
The DP9 March Madness Sale continues until Midnight EST on March 31st, 2020. With some great specials and for every $50 USD spent (order sub-total) on the Dream Pod 9 Online Store we are giving you $10 USD in gifts of your choice. This includes all our products (minis, books, parts, patches, decals, dice, etc.). If you spend $100 USD, select $20 USD in gifts of your choice and so on! We need your support during this difficult time, please place an order on the DP9 Online Store (link below) and help us out.
Also, please stay safe, wash your hands, no hand shaking, and if your not feeling well let others know and self quarantine (as best possible) and we’ll all make it thru this together.
