I just got the items I preordered for the Playtest today. I'm really saddened that the pages of my hardcover and the module are all wavy like they've been left outdoors in a humid environment. Are others finding this, too?
I did received it today as well. Same problem for me. Pages are thin and well printed, which may be the cause.Sadly for me DHL was a bit rough with it too. Also, my first page was folded.
Aside from that, the book itself has a good quality (the cover is very nice, the hard in hardcover, more than respected ^^).
I received the paperback Playtest Rulebook just now and whilst it is slightly wavy, my problems are more with scratches, nicks to some pages, and bent corners. It was not packaged properly at all, just dumped loosely in some cardboard along with the Flip-Mat, which at least had some thin clingfilm-like covering. :/ I got mine via Amazon U.S. (to England), and it looks like they took some liberties with delivery thanks to previously raised issues with their scheduling on this. *Sigh*
I forgot to come back to this, (due to health issues at the moment), but my Rulebook had food stains on the top pages. :/ I thought that is was part of the old paper edging style, only realizing later that it differed as I went through the book.
For those who are desperately curious, I believe that it was a bolognese sauce.
