Rolling Boxcars Reviews APOCTHULHU Corebook

APOCTHULHU got a brand new — and very, VERY detailed — review today over on Rolling Boxcars. Veteran RPG reviewer Modoc put the game through its paces and teased out everything good (and less-good) about the game’s mechanics, settings, scenarios, and … everything else.

One point raised in this review is the variability of physical books produced Print On Demand (which is the only way to get APOCTHULHU at present). We agree with Modoc’s assessment that POD is much more variable than traditional offset printing — our own experience bears that out. To counterbalance that, though, we have heard anecdotal reports from customers who have identified shortcomings in their physical books — and complained to DriveThruRPG. All of those had been replaced for free …

So if ANYONE buys a POD title from us and finds the physical books not up-to-scratch (e.g., bad binding, as sadly occurred with Modoc’s review copy), we strongly encourage you to go back to DTRPG and ask them politely to replace the book. We don’t think it’s a common occurrence, but knowing that the printers will replace faulty items should give everyone a bit more confidence in the process.
