    Just a question on the pricing, I looked at some of the items on there, and at the price they're currently listed at I don't think many people would actually purchase them. For instance why would anyone ever purchase the MTW package for $26.99 when they can purchase the MTW Gold (including VI) for $22.99 or M2TW Gold for $26.99 when they can purchase M2TW + Kingdoms for $23.18 or the RTW anthology for $54.99 when the three items separately are $50.96 and then there's the alexander add on for $36.99 when you can get it on steem for $10?

    I think some of the prices might want to examined, or if fixed by amazon.com bring this up with them, since listing an item people are unlikely to buy doesn't make sense.

    EDIT: It would also be nice if I could order from Canada

    You can order from Canada, I am pretty sure.


    And about the prices, well we can't really do something about them, that is up to amazon.

    Nope can't order from Canada. I tried to go through so I could see what it would cost me to ship it here, and when I entered my shipping destination during check out I was told it couldn't ship to my geographic location. I was on the US store.

    As for the prices, this was why I mentioned if amazon has fixed the price perhaps talking to them about changing it would be the way to go.

    Wonderful ideA!
    I am happy to donate that way to TWC
    I purchased E TW from it couple of days ago (should have been delivered 2 days ago via the Royal Mail, lol)

    Just got my copy of ETW from the TWC store and it arrived yesterday, so to anyone who hasn't bought it, this is an effective method. It only took 4-5 days to get here on the Free shipping option, you can also get 2-day for a bit more money(if you buy 1-day shipping then for shame, have some patience, save some money). So to anyone who thought this might be a pyramid scheme where you invest in the prospect of getting ETW and sell that same prospect to others, it is and I've just made a lot of money with this post it is not, it works as intended.

    I'm about to pre-order NTW from the TWC marketplace and I just though that it surely is a good idea to make a hot-link from this thread to the NTW sub-forum. A little advertising in order to increase TWC income doesn't harm, does it? And it took me some time to find this thread. Adding it to the NTW forum would make it easier to find

    I was also wondering whether it's possible to use a search function in the marketplace?? I couldn't find something like that.

    And I would like to add the book "Decisive Moments in History" by Stefan Zweig (original title: "Sternstunden der Menschheit"). It's a great book with short stories about Waterloo, Cicero, the siege of Byzantium and some more moments in history. I can really recommend this book!

    We had a global announcement ,about pre-ordering NTW from the marketplace, going to start a new one.

    Not entirely sure, but I think there isn't a search function.

    Hey jim, it's me again

    With shogun 2 approaching I'd like to add some more books here which I really enjoyed reading. Maybe you can add them to the marketplace (if you're still in charge for it)

    Lian Hearn - Tales of the Otori
    -> a series of 5 novels (initially a trilogy):
    --> Across the Nightingale Floor
    --> Grass for His Pillow
    --> Brilliance of the Moon
    --> The Harsh Cry of the Heron (sequel)
    --> Heaven's Net is Wide (prerquel)

    The books are set in a fictional feudal Japan, exactly in the time Shogun 2 is going to be. They are some really good books and I can deeply recommend them!

    Thanks jim

    D|need


    P.s.: Shogun 2 can already be preordered from amazon.co.uk for £29.99. A good deal I think. Maybe you could add that to the marketplace, too? And... dunno whether that's already worth an announcement in the Shogun 2 sub-forum?!
