Books disappeared from Lulu

Post Mon Apr 27, 2020 6:00 pm

Hello. I just discovered this awesome game and I was on my way to purchase all of the printable versions from Lulu and it looks like all the links are broken. They were working the other day. Doing a manual search for the books does bring some of them up but others seem to be completely gone. :( :( :(

Lulu did some kind of big upgrade recently, which may be the problem.

Yep they all have completely different (and much longer) URLs now.

Lulu is a horrible mess right now. Books we have in print are showing up on my dashboard as incomplete. I'm going to give them a week to pull their website out of their nether anatomy and then take another look.

Until it's sorted out, the Lulu links should be commented out on https://www.basicfantasy.org/buytherules.html.
I received an email a week or two back that Lulu had/was changing their cover design system. Perhaps that's what's giving the incomplete status?

Temporarily stickying this topic so more are aware of this.

Sort of, but it's all messed up. Badly, badly messed up. I don't recommend buying from them for the moment, until their crap is all together again.

I just noticed that today, as I was thinking of getting a hardcover copy, and was wondering how to let y'all know. Glad to see you're already aware.

Hmm. Hardcovers should still be good.

... well, last night the Spotlight page was working. Now it's not. No idea what's going on there.

Hardbacks are available from RPGNow also, at least for the Core Rules.
