Answers to your questions,
Thank you for registering and your support/ interest in General Quarters and all of ODGW products. We are a a group of hobbyist (gamers) like yourself that love to write and play. This said our response times are honestly hit and miss due to real jobs and family obligations. But we try...
We have two purchase options - Printed or Digital (PDF) copies.
When you purchase a printed copy you will receive an email confirmation of the purchase. Once your order has shipped (3-5 days) you will receive another email with a tracking number.
When you receive your printed book, there is a registration page in the back (last page) with a unique serial number. All printed copies have a registration page. Go back to the ODGW site sigh up for a free account (you have already done this) and follow the instructions on the registration page to register your book. Once the registration has been accepted (1-2 days) then your account will be given access to the Private Download library. This has a boat load (pun intended) of items for your rules including a digital copy of the rules for you to DL.
One item of note - We do not ship to the UK due to the latest import restrictions and fees that have been levied. So if you want a printed copy I'd recommend Caliver Books . Dave is a great guy.
When you purchase a digital copy of our books, your email is automatically registered and you will receive an email with the DL link and access to the Private Download Library.
If you have any issues you can complete a Support Ticket (link on the home page) and we will address it as soon as possible (with the above caveats as explained).
