I see them in pdf, but are they available as hardcopies?

They show up at my FLGS, so I'd say yes.

Weird. I can't find it anywhere online. My Google-fu must be failing me. I wonder if I can order it from them?

I hope not. They still haven't shipped my Kickstarter books yet.*
If you can buy them from a game store that wasn't a Kickstarter backer (there was a Brick & Mortar level for stores to get them early) then I need to have a stern work with PEG, who needs to have a stern word with Studio 2.

*Not haven't arrived. I mean they haven't been packed and stacked to go out the door - I am going to get an e-mail once that has happened, and I have no such e-mail.

Stores were able to participate in the Kickstarter, which is why some have copies.

See what I did there?

Right now your best option is to build yourself a pre-order bundle. You'll get hardcopies as soon a they're available.

Just adding: Preorders from our website ship after the last Kickstarter backer is shipped. Then we'll make the products available to retailers through normal distribution, but it may take up to 2-3 months for those to trickle to stores.

Merchant backers were treated no differently from other backers. Here's where we discussed the packing process:

The warehouse team is hard at work on this Martin Luther King, Jr., holiday, and we appreciate their diligence. All packages should be out soon!

Good to hear they're still working at it. Looks like we have another day before some of us need to email to point out they haven't shipped yet? Or do you guys have a new date we should be using to email you guys?

Just posted a shipping update on the Kickstarter on the Comments page (not a Kickstarter Update update since it only applies to about 9% of backers):

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/54 ... s/comments

Shipping Update:
I just spoke with the warehouse and they have about 400 orders left including the EU pallet.
A software glitch is holding up the EU pallet right now (Murphy's Law, right?) so they are working to resolve that and make sure they don't leave anyone out, checking and rechecking the EU order. That of course has pulled staff away from packing orders.
They should ship most of the remaining orders today and tomorrow, so tomorrow the 18th is still the target date. Please wait until after 6 pm Central U.S. time to check for your tracking ID. If it ships tomorrow you may not see it any earlier than 6 pm Central, and possibly later.
If you still don't see a tracking ID starting Thursday morning, email site.admin@peginc.com. We'll check to be sure your order was completed in PledgeManager and pulled to the warehouse for packing.
I can't wait to hear game reports and see pics of your game groups playing Savage Rifts®! Thank you all for your continued support. :)
