How much will shipping & handling be?

Please note, these prices are only an estimate based on current prices and projected weight of the book, thus they could change. Prices are listed in USD.

Of course, we know the overseas prices are INSANE! We don't like the cost of S&H anymore than you and have been trying to locate fulfillment houses in Canada, Europe, and Australia to make things easier on our backers. If we obtain a deal with overseas fulfillment houses these costs will come down considerably. We still have some time to get the prices down before this project moves into BackerKit. Thank you for your patience and understanding!

NOTE: We have recently adjusted S&H prices because AAW Games is accepting $20-$25 of the cost ourselves just to help our overseas friends get these books in hand!

$8 US (USPS Media Mail) $50.00 UK $50.00 Europe $45.00 Canada $45.00 Mexico $50.00 Australia/New Zealand $55.00 Asia countries (varies depending upon the country)

UPDATE 1: We have decided to eat almost $25.00 USD of the S&H ourselves, many of these prices were $70-75 but we've chosen to accept a considerable amount of the expense in order to get these books to our friends overseas. UPDATE 2: We are also currently in negotiations with fulfillment houses in Australia and Canada. S&H prices will be adjusted if and when a deal is secured. Thank you for your patience!

What books are contained in the main book? What is the page count of each of these books?

The new Rise of the Drow: Collector’s Editon contains the following books:

Rise of the Drow: Player’s Guide – 18 pages
Rise of the Drow Epilogue: The Darkness Arrives – 129 pages Rise of the Drow: Descent into the Underworld – 121 pages Rise of the Drow: Scourge of Embla – 84 pages Rise of the Drow: Usurper of Souls – 252 pages Rise of the Drow (original Kickstarter version): Expanded Content – 50 pages Rise of the Drow Epilogue: Commander of Malice – 69 pages New content including settlement sections on – Rybalka, Embla, Stoneholme, Vethin’s Hold, Holoth, and more (all unlocked via stretch goals) - page count TBA

About page counts: these are the Pathfinder RPG versions, 5th Edition tends to have smaller statblocks and less involved language when it comes to mechanics which greatly reduces page count. Thus, we’re estimating around 600 pages total once all of these books have been converted and combined.

Where is the Pathfinder RPG HARDCOVER version?

Surprise! There is a Pathfinder print book!

Pathfinder RPG 1st edition doesn't have the support it once did, so we can't gather enough backers to warrant a full print-run of this book. However, we will be offering a Print-on-Demand (PoD) version of this book AT COST to backers at the Pathfinder RPG PDF pledge level!

NOTE: THIS BOOK WILL GET THE SAME CONTENT ENHANCEMENTS AND STRETCH GOAL ADDITIONS AS THE 5E VERSION (with PF game stats and terminology, of course).

This book will be produced in softcover & hardcover in B&W and color (600+ pages).

Can I pledge for both Pathfinder RPG and D&D 5th Edition books?

Yes, if you want just PDFs simply pledge at one of the two levels then increase by the other level you'd like.

If you'd like both print books pledge $99 for the D&D 5th Edition hardcover/PDF combo then increase your pledge by $59 to include the Pathfinder PDF + PoD combo.

BackerKit FAQ

What is BackerKit?

BackerKit is a service that crowdfunded project creators use to keep track of hundreds to tens of thousands of backers—from shipping details, pledge levels, preferences and quantities, whether they have paid or had their card declined, special notes, and everything in between!

The BackerKit software and support team is independent from the campaign’s project team—BackerKit does not handle the actual reward shipping. For more information about the preparation or delivery status of your rewards, please check the project's updates page.

How does BackerKit work?

After the campaign ends, the project creator will send you an email with a unique link to your survey. You can check out a walkthrough of the process here.

I never received my invitation. How do I complete the survey?

The most common reasons for not receiving a survey email is that you may be checking an email inbox different from the email address you used to sign up with Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account, or it may be caught in your spam filter.

Confirm that the email address you are searching matches the email address tied to your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Tilt Pro account. If that doesn’t work, then try checking your spam, junk or promotions folders. You can also search for "backerkit” in your inbox.

To resend the survey to yourself, visit the project page and input the email address associated with your Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account.

How do I update my shipping address?

BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the shipping addresses are locked by the project creator. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.

When will my order be shipped, charged or locked?

That is handled directly by the project creator. BackerKit functions independently of the project itself, so we do not have control of their physical shipping timeline. If you want to check on the project’s status, we recommend reading over the project's updates page.

I completed the survey, but haven't received my rewards yet. When will they arrive?

As BackerKit does not actually handle any rewards or shipping, the best way to stay updated on the shipping timeline would be to check out the project's updates page.

A backer account helps backers (like you!) to keep their surveys organized. Oftentimes, people who support projects that use crowdfunding support multiple projects across crowdfunding platforms. Any project that uses BackerKit will appear in your BackerKit account, and will allow you to help keep track of updates such as address, items, timelines, support, etc.
