Earlier this week the organizers of the World of Darkness Berlin, Participation | Design | Agency (PDA), has announced that they still have some leftover sets of the highly sought-after VTES Anthology sets. About 900 of them to be more precise, and they’re up for sale for anyone today (Thursday September 28th, 2017) at 20:00 CET (Centreal European Time). The price will be 30 EUR per set plus an additional allegedly hefty shipping fee. Since the shipping fee is the same for up to 12 sets, it’s advantageous to order in bulk with your friends, instead of ordering individually.
Here’s what the wrote on the the World of Darkness Berlin website:
W0rld of Darkness Berlin is over but we will continue selling merchandise until stock runs out.
We will open for the sale of V:TES cards Thursday September 28th. at 20.00 CET.
V:TES cards and freight
Due to freight services being super expensive in Sweden the best way is to order more Anthology Sets at the at the same time. Freight cost will be the same for up to 12 anthology sets so find some friends and make an order together.
The cards are shipped by DHL and you will receive a tracking number as soon as we have sent the package. Delivery time will be within a week (we hope).
