Is there a cheaper way of mail delievery by USPS? 7 Years, 9 Months ago  
I like the Den of Evil Wicked set but the shipping cost is too expansive at around $56. When I ordered the original set last year, I thought that it was around $25 or less. Is there anyway I can choose a different method of shipment by USPS?

wildger -

Not to be a rgouch, but we thrashed this one out pretty thoroughly last time around.

Here's a suggestion that may help, and it's ONLY an idea, I dunno if you an implement this one or not.

Do you have a friend here in the States who you THOROUGHLY TRUST with your DF? Trust far enough that you'd be willing to order the stuff and have it sent to him, and have him send it to you via whatever cheap method you select?

IF you do, then do that. It will save YOU AND DF significant dollars - but make sure that they ship it fully INSURED for full value. That way, if anything DOES happen to it, the SHIPPER and the INSURER will cover damage repair/replacement, instead of you having to eat it.

Just an idea, and NO, you do NOT know ME well enough for that! And you do not TRUST me well enough for that, either! Believe me, you do NOT! Hell, I don't know or trust me well enough for that.

But if you have someone you DO, then go for it.

See ya!

It is very unfortunate that only USPS global express has tracking. Otherwise, global priority mail offers will do. However, can the problem be resolved if all the packages are insured?

So wildger, since you are mentioning USPS Global, but do not have your location listed on your profile, are we to presume that you are not Stateside or in North America?
Without your location listed, no one here can be of much assistance to you.

Is www.dwarvenforge.info/accueil.htm in France a licensed site? Does ordering from France help the shipping costs? Do Jeff and Stefan need to sic their lawyers on the website I've cited? Let's find out...

I understand that it may be a problem if you live out of North America but I live from Canada. The shipping cost is more than double from last year.

Isn't that Tom's site? I don't think he is actually selling DF in France.

I don't speak French, so I can't tell, but there are price listings in Euros on a page called Acheter...

The links go to an English company called LegendGames, which does sell DF.

Yep, and other links go to Dragonworld as a german supplier, who is now just selling his remaining stock (not much, really).

So these pages really seem to be from the pre-direct-sales-period.

I really wish websites had expiration dates on them... maybe a "last-update" notation in the upper right corner?
