I know a PDF is included in the pre-order bundle; I was wondering whether the PDF would be received before the physical product shipping in December?
You should get it in the next day or two.
The quickstart, you should already got or you will shortly. When the real pdf of the game comes out, we don't know. It needs to be done first (of course). So when the FL sends the finished rulebook for printing, is probably the earliest you could expect the pdf (a month? before shipping), but my 2c goes to that the real pdfs are sent out when they start shipping.
