We wish we could say we had a release date. The RuneQuest Starter Set is now in four of our five Chaosium fulfilment warehouses (US, EU, AUS, CAN) but we're still waiting to get it into the last – UK. The shipment to the UK is on the way, but the latest advice is it may take another 5-14 days to arrive, depending on UK customs and truck driver availability at the destination.
In the mean time, we thank you for your patience. As Rick noted in his last Covid-19 Shipping and Fulfilment update, we were very confident we'd have the eagerly-anticipated RuneQuest Starter Set in all our fulfilment warehouses by the end of summer. Unfortunately, due to shipping delays out of our control, that was sadly not to be. If you'd like to get an email the moment the RQ Starter Set is ready to order, sign up here!
