as I said many times before when this was announced yesterday...while I applaud this effort and believe it to be a VERY good business move...it's far far too little and very late to the table.  about 5 years too late, in fact.  WoTC is attempting to reverse the damage done to their business model by a CEO who is/was a f*cking moron with no understanding of his target market or the genre he was selling.  But hey, he got his golden parachute so go capitalism go!


sorry.  i'm only slightly bitter about that.  again, WoTC is behind the bell curve on this one.  paizo and several other companies grabbed hold of the digital sales market 5 years ago and 1. hammered out the technical issues long, long ago and 2. established trust with their customers and built up a reputation for selling a quality product at a decent price.  Paizo has even started including digital maps specifically designed to work with tablet computers, and that will 'layer in' DM info, then remove it at a touch so players can look at it and use it during play.

not saying WoTC can't make a go of this tech but...they've shot themselves in BOTH feet, then decided to run a marathon race 20 min after the starting gun went off.

I've checked out the Paizo merchandise too, and it looks pretty good. Too bad all of my gaming is of the MMO variety these days....

i wish i had taken notes while managing a comic book shop for nearly 10 years. the constant regaling of DnD sessions because friendless virgins know you are a captive audience was truly an epic experience. my well of patience and ability to not snap and go postal are endless now. pity and rage battled it out every day as to how to handle them. they need a version of survivor for that. Survivor: Local Gaming Shop (circa 1995) would be worth watching.

one of my favorite customer quotes: "Don't pick a fight in a comic book store. Everyone there has had at least a month of martial arts classes."

WhippingBoy: gilgigamesh: Agent Smiths Laugh: I lost my virginity because of D&D.

I lost my virginity to the one chick in our D&D group.

Are you sure? Not that it was your virginity, but that it was actually a "chick".

Yup.  A 10th level half-elf thief, and with an 18 charisma to boot.  My buddy Bob ran the charac-...

Oh.  Oh God.

Oh God NO.

I think this marks the largest "old" company that I've heard of actually -getting- how the digital world works now.

...and they were dragged kicking and screaming into online sales.  i'll say this as well - 5 years ago when WoTC ordered their online partners to yank their products offline, within 3 days or so I saw D&D torrents that had been dead for years suddenly being seeded like crazy.

kronicfeld: No Dark Sun products? So much for "every."

I hated dark sun.  that said, WoTC said they'll eventually put everything back up online but that it'll take some time to get it all together and presentable.  this batch was merely the first...and drivethrurpg.com slagged their servers about 10 min after even this amount of stuff was posted.
