    Hi Sean,
    I backed your Indiegogo campaign at the $30 level and I still haven't received anything in the mail. I'm just wondering if you have a way of tracking when it got shipped, or if it hasn't been shipped yet?

    Hi Sean
    I'm doing a rundown of all of the Indiegogo and Kickstarter campaigns I've funded that I haven't received yet and yours is the only one where you've announced that the books are shipping yet I still haven't received anything. Your last update claims the books should arrive by Christmas, but it's April now. Any response would be appreciated.

Erik Tenkar: Sean, this project is about to become a post at The Tavern…

Still no communication heard from Sean Connors. According to comments on the indiegogo page he has not spoken to anyone via email since December. The book has been done and available as a pdf for months, and there are several reviews on DriveThruRPG for it which suggests that the book is indeed selling there.

As for me, I'm expecting some eventual public declaration that either A) he got sick and it incapacitated him so the project suffered some slowdown near the end, B) a relative died and coping with the stress tore him away from sending out the final books, C) he'll claim ignorance of any problems and insist books have arrived/the books are on their way, or perhaps D) all of the above.

I'm not optimistic. Can you tell?


  1. Strangely enough, i got my copy last year. It was poorly packaged, and (sadly) arrived in a damaged condition. I did get it, though.

    1. Yeah, that is weird. If he sent out some of them why not say that? It's that total and complete lack of communication that makes the whole thing look shady. You're also the first person I've heard of receiving a physical copy.

  2. I sent Sean a message on Facebook, and I pointed him to this blog post. I hope that it helps. Good luck. I know him from my interactions with him on YouTube (I'm Samwise7RPG on there).
