FFG is having their annual sale. It looks like they are advertising Midnight Second Edition for $5, but when I added it to my cart it stated that it was $10. Still a great deal; but the even better deal is that Fury is selling for $5 and I just bought a copy.

...And there goes any chance of paying my phone bill next month.

Collection complete.

I've got a target for my New Year's resolution: impulse control.

Hello, folks! I'm thinking of taking advantage of the big sale to finally sink my teeth into Midnight. Just looking for a little advice on what products to pick up. So far, I'm trying to limit myself to five because I've already gone crazy with the Kenzer & Co. and Green Ronin sales. Here's what I have so far:

Midnight: 2nd Edition
Midnight: Sorcery & Shadow
Midnight: Steel & Shadow
Midnight: Minions of Shadow
Midnight: Under the Shadow


I guess my big question is if any of the material from the supplements were covered/updated in Midnight: 2nd Edition. For instance, I was going to get Against the Shadow until I learned that most of that material is in Midnight: 2nd Edition. Any other advice?

Much thanks in advance!

I would suggest removing Minions, and replacing it with Fury of Shadow just for the shear wealth of material for $10. Other than that it would depend on where you are looking to set a campaign. I would recommend Crow of Shadow, but I cannot see it in the sale.

Wow Midnight 2nd Edition for $10 ($18 total with shipping).

Man, that's a great deal.  I grabbed myself one.  I had the 3rd edition book before, but for the money, it would be nice to have the newer one.

Now I have something to look for in the mail.  : )

Thanks for the tip off on this sale. I have been scouring the Internet looking for deals on Midnight products. You can't beat this sale! I bought a bunch of stuff.

Merry Christmas, all.

Does anyone know if FFG is going to have another one of these sales anytime soon? I really missed my chance due to financial concerns Sad

I'll settle for even the slightest piece of rumor Wink

Oh, well... Let's hope that the 4e thingy doesn't break the tradition. Wink

Thanks a ton for the head's-up, Jester. Been waiting all year for this action. It's become a personal tradition for me.

Excellent.  Just grabbed the rest of the books I needed (City is Out of Stock, and I don't really need Legends or Hand, but I now have the rest! )  huzzah!

Why does shipping a single book to Europe cost $26 ???  shock
Other companies ship a book for $2.

Very frustrating.

This is one of the main reason I no longer buy books on-line and have them sent over.

Any time I bought books (Amazon, FFG, Paizo, etc.) i usually paid more for shipping than for the books themselves..

Last year all shipping costs were increased for the US and also it went up again with the crisis it seems.

Sadly, there don't really seem to be economies of scale on the shipping, either: it's not a high initial cost, then next-to-nothing to add more books.

To find out how bad it was, I put together the largest-possible order I could think of wanting - and the shipping still very nearly doubled the price.

As it is, it _might_ still be worth it, but....

Yay! Thanks for the heads up!  mrgreen Now my Midnight collection is complete! well, except for the 3.0 rulebook, but it's kind of redundant with MN2E (also, it's quite strange that the 3.0 rulebook and Against the Shadow aren't on sale...)

As for the shipping prices, they're charging the usual USPS' Priority Mail fee, even a couple of dollars less. At least, that's the case for my location (Uruguay).

Well shpping is always like that, specially for books, it is due to a simple factor, it is either weight or volume that is being priced by the mail companies involved, amazon has a calculation that used to be U$11,00 + U$5,00 per book. Best place I have found to buy books and with a very reasonable shipping price is Noble Knight Games, they also have the best wrapping I have seen so far, very good customer service and work with used and out of print material too.

But one thing they cannot beat, is the price of this sale Wink

The problem is that FFG only offers "USPS Priority Mail International", which costs at least $30.
Noble Knight Games also offers "USPS International Surface Air Lift" which starts at $10.

I mailed FFG about this, asking for a cheaper shipping, but they never answered any of my mails  Sad

Hell. This is over, isn't it? I just went looking (finally got some extra cash laying around), and I'm pretty sure it was over on the 9th.
