Overlord Compendiums are Coming Back!

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

 Some behind the scenes news for you:

 

- @MaiBzh started working at Monolith last week. She'll be in charge of communications. At first, we'll give her a hand to make for a smooth transition. Fred will stay involved, and, of course, I (Matt John), will be around as well.

 

- Compendium Volume 3 (dedicated to Mythic Battles) will be available shortly. We just ordered 1,000 French and 1,000 English copies. We're currently looking for a solution to lower shipping costs for the US and will keep you updated.

 

Gross shipment cost for Philibert is 5€, which we split between the selling price (3€) and shipping costs (2€). You can, of course, add a compendium to any order you make through Philibert.

 

Basically, nothing changes: printing costs are handled by Monolith, and Philibert makes it available. The 5€ only covers their shipping costs, no profit is made on either side.

 

Using Philibert will make it easier for everyone, for this volume and all those to come.

 

Psst! This is privileged information for TO members. Don’t you feel special?! You'll have a few days' notice once pre-orders open at Philibert before we communicate it to the rest of the world on social media :). Though the hope is to have a massive order. Don’t worry, a reprint is possible!

 

Side note: apparently, a few Vol. 1 Compendiums lost their way after being shipped. Please email support@monolithedition.com and Romain will check your order and help you out.

 

That's all, folks!

So I am a new fan of monolith. Is there a way to get all Issues of the Overlord magazine/compendium in English shipped to US?

You missed it by ... that much. The distribution has been problematic. In the last round they opened a print service who took orders, then is doing the print run and we're all waiting for it to be shipped. There have been complaints about shipping / handling costs making it very expensive in some countries. I would suspect that in about a year there will be another print run, maybe with better shipping options. International is difficult.

 

Most of the scenarios are available for download in various places. If you do take the effort to track them all down, please keep a list of links and post that for folks.

Not to rub salt in the wounds of those who haven’t received their copies of the new Compendiums yet, but I got mine and they are awesome. Very nice job on the printing, with thick covers and pages. Lots of great art, articles, and scenarios. My crew and I will be trying out one of the new Conan scenarios tonight. Thanks to Monolith and all the various contributors!!

My copy of Compendium I has much thinner paper for the cover and just doesn’t have the slick design and manufacturing of the newer versions. I don’t know if they ever printed a nicer version in English or French.
