No email from DF either, but this gives me hope for the single cavern starter set in my order.

Thank you, UPS! Just got an email from them saying I will have a package coming tomorrow. So no email from DF. 🤷‍♂️

1: They want to get what product they can into our hands, so we have something to play with. :)

2: They have realized that many of their backers have spouses that will not be happy when a refrigerator sized shipment shows up of more Dwarvenite, so DF is helping keep the secrete by making the shipments smaller. ;)

I am sure these partial shipments will cost DF a ton of money. Why not just admit they are really late and ship it all at once? I know it is nice getting something, but it is still a ton of money for DF to drop.
They have admitted multiple times they are behind on shipping. They've also stated they're doing what they can to get product to customers ASAP. Whatever the cost it's one they've determined they can accept.

I can't say for sure, but to my understanding they work with a warehouse and they don't own the whole space. This is part of the balancing act they have with the webstore... they need to make sure they have sets in stock that move fast because it costs them money to have the sets sit in the warehouse. It is probably cheaper for them to send the sets they have now from the kickstarter then wait until they have everything.

I did not get get any of my Ice Starter set in this shipment. So I think they are just shipping what they can to spread it out. I almost want to think It may have something to do with weight and what they can fit in one box. I don't blame them if they know there are going to be more things shipped to someone they why spend the money on a 2ed box just to put in 2 more things.

I didn't know underdoom and ice caverns starter sets also shipped to people. I got my encounters 1, 3 and 5 but did not get either starter set. Were there only limited sets available?
Very limited. I think only about 8% of backers got partial in first shipment?

I believe the folks who received anything factory painted in ice or underdoom was just a cavern starter set. Out of all of my cavern sets on my order (which included underdoom) I only received the natural cave color.

KS6 could have been nearly at 100% fulfilled right now if it did not include encounters 13, 14 and 15. But without those encounters many here would not have found it as interesting of a KS.
