Then perhaps others should be the focus of said cane and beating? ;D
My cane gets a lot of use, and is not something I think badly about having purchased.

So... is this coming out the date it says on Amazon? I saw Dec 18th and its only a few days away, and suddenly I noticed the date is gone now.

As noted (at length ;D) elsewhere in the forums, you shouldn't put any stock in the release dates that Amazon has for SR (and all CGL) products. As we have no formal announcement from CGL, I don't think we'll be seeing this in print until well into Q1 2014 (though I'd be very happy to be proven wrong).

The only SR product with a street date of December 18 is the SR5 GM Screen.


Which reminds me that when I get a chance I need to add the Street Date and Released tags to the appropriate tumblr posts.

The box set had this date originally and that was the main reason I ordered it. LIKE I SAID, it suddenly changed from Dec 18th to No date.

Lord Nikon; read this: http://forums.shadowruntabletop.com/index.php?topic=13598.0

As has already been stated in this very thread, Amazon release dates are not official.

OH I know. I am not mad AT ALL. I was just simply asking if there was any projected date on it..

Your writing style indicates that you are, in fact, mad. Unless I'm just misjudging your tone, which is quite often the case on the internet; if that's the case, disregard. If you are mad, why? Anyone with a little bit of common sense should know by now that release dates are not set in stone until the message about items being shipped actually arrives; until that happens, all you can do is settle down and wait. Spending energy being mad because a product you want is not ready yet isn't very healthy, and it certainly won't make the product ship any faster.

In any case, to the best of my knowledge projected dates have not appeared anywhere here on the forums nor on their tumbler page. In fact, their last update on November 13th about the box set simply mentions that they are "about to send the Shadowrun Introductory Box Set off to print".

I'd say this is another classic example of the Army doctrine of "Hurry up and wait". I wouldn't be surprised if the Box Set arrives in Q1, 2014 at some point.

Another interesting point is that Run & Gun is mentioned on the same tumbler page as being "the first core rules expansion for Shadowrun, Fifth Edition…", on November 1st. I must have missed that earlier, but yay, Run & Gun! Also probably Q1, 2014, or as Blizzard puts it; soon. :D
