We got our latest Dream Pod 9 Online Store orders shipping out this week on February 24th, along with the remaining Heavy Gear Blitz Utopia, Peace River & NuCoal Kickstarter reward packages. Once the new HGB 3rd Edition Rulebook is finished layout in March we’ll make it available to everyone as a free to download ebook on DriveThruRPG. Then get it printed and shipped out to Backers, who still need a copy for their reward packages. After that we’ll make it available for Print on Demand purchase to everyone and get copies printed to sell on the DP9 Online Store. The next DP9 shipping is scheduled for Wednesday, March 24th, 2021.
After the reward packages were shipped, we went and checked the DP9 Pledge Manager accounts to see if any Backers still had points left in their accounts. And there are still 20 Backers that never completed their account registration and/or submitted orders and paid the fixed shipping cost. We’ll be contacting all of them again this weekend to get them setup, paid, and shipped in March. The DP9 Pledge Manager is now closed to new Outside Backer orders and will be officially closing down on March 31st, 2021. After that date any Backers that still have not submitted their DP9 Pledge Manager orders will have to contact us directly to workout any payments owing and shipping details.
We plan to make available the new Utopia, Peace River, and NuCoal plastic miniature Army Boxes for purchase on the DP9 Online Store sometime in March, along with the other new pewter and resin miniatures that were part of the Kickstarters.

Starting with this weeks episode “E44: Here Comes the Rooster” featuring DP9’s HGB Rules Designer the Rooster. Where he drinks with the boys and introduces the HGB game and the new 3rd Edition Rules and answers questions. Here is a link to the latest episode posted to YouTube for you all to checkout.
