I haven't received anything yet re: my fourth mailing. Odd, because they've been spot on with every mailing thus far with FiS. I'm getting lots of emails in anticipation of the new experiences, just nothing on my fourth mailing.

My fourth mailing has a tracking number, but I did not receive an email. Additionally it is still listed as Pending, not shipped. I presume actual shipping will occur on Fri. I admit I am very much anticipating this particular artifact.
I Apologize for all grammatical and spelling errors as well as missing words and words that make no sense in the provided context. My IPad hates me.
I just received a shipping notice without tracking information. Given our history with customs, that is of course deeply troubling; I do hope this is just a mishap...
I would like to retract that statement. The same thing did indeed happen when my Demon Jar Artifact was shipped, and while it took quite a while to arrive, there was no issue with customs at all. So I do, in fact, hope that this is the same arrangement.

I assume that email was really supposed to go out yesterday when most tracking numbers appeared and they got overwhelmed with the launch of the Experiences. Keep in mind that it often takes two business days for any information to appear after the Tracking number is generated, at least for USPS.
Let me clarify: The eMail did not contain tracking information, and indeed, in my order summary the fourth mailing is now marked as "Send via standard post".
As I wrote above though, apart from the uncertainty, this might actually be preferrable. I do hope they do not ship The Reveal too soon; with The Demon Jar, The Artifact did not arrive until four weeks after it had been posted.
I believe that at the time they were trying out different carriers to get around the customs issue - this seems to have worked well for them: Either they gota round having to pay taxes and duties all around, or they paid for it themselves. Either way, I can spare two extra weeks, if I can get around paying an extra 19% on top as the bare minimum for taxes.
Speaking of Germany as a foreign land: I saw pictures from Texas Rennaisance Faire the other day, and was highly amused that it is apparently great fun for some people to dress up in traditional Bavarian Trachten, probably in the same way I would throw on a kilt and a large floppy hat.
diggitydoodog: I've had dubious documents for 2 years now and finally went to work on it. Would anyone on here be willing to PM me the answer or post it in a spoiler so I can check the solution?
