My local gaming store's distributors are saying they are out of Arsenal. Does anyone know if there are any plans to release a second printing of Arsenal anytime soon? I could order one off of Amazon, but I would prefer to support my local gaming store.

Alliance is Catalyst Games Labs' primary distributor. According to their web site ( http://www.alliance-games.com/publicaccess/ ) the book is definitely in stock. (When it's not, it'll list something under status like TOS for Temporarily Out of Stock.) You might want to check and see which distributor your FLGS uses and/or drop a line to Catalyst directly about the issue with the name of the shop.

I'll second what Dunner said -- we're not out of stock of Arsenal at our level yet, and any distributor that we deal with [and we deal with all the significant ones] should be able to order it.

Make sure they are looking for the right Arsenal book. There was an Arsenal book for Shatterzone by WEG back in the day (same exact name), and knowing distributors for other items their systems sometimes don't get cleared of really old shit.

Thanks guys. I talked to them, and they said they (or their distributors) receive orders from Alliance about once a week. Well I put my order in with my gaming store about 3 or more weeks ago. Guess they are slacking, or lying to me.

Oh well. Thanks again.

Jimson, if you drop me the name and contact info to the store via private message or email to adamjury at catalystgamelabs.com, I'll see about getting Alliance or our operations manager to give them a call to sort things out.

Plenty on the floor and ready to ship from all 4 Alliance locations! Check with the store, maybe it was just a miscommunication somewhere. In fact, we'll have a rep call to do the same!

Thank you for looking into this. I feel like I'm tattling on them or something. Not sure where the confusion is. I ordered Augmentation at the same time. They didn't have any problems getting that, so I'm not sure what's the hold up on Arsenal. I ordered the PDF in the meantime, but would like a physical book (since it is a really good book to have). I sent a private message to Adam, per his request.

Adam or Mike, have you had any luck working with the distributors in my area?

We checked and there are no supply chain issues in your area.

Strange. I wonder if my local gaming store (or someone else) is being lazy. Thanks Adam for your help.

Or maybe they made an honest mistake ... they, like you and I, are only human. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

I truly doubt Adam, that you are human. You do way too much at the same time. I am thinking AI or some other matrix entity. And when you are seen in the "flesh" an Android possesses by your AI persona.
