The issue of the buy-in

Phil Reed hits the nail on the head regarding the WotC $5000 Developer Kit Buy-in: In my mind, the fee isn’t the problem. In fact, I think that there should be a fee to use the D&D name and a special, new, trademarked logo.

The problem is that after a few months there is no [...]

The news has broken

I can officially stop being cryptic.


I was going to post about this but gmskarka beat me to it.

What can I say? I’m glad our business plan didn’t rely on being able to produce officially recognized STL support for 4E D&D. As for the question of when prospective publishers are going to see the 4E rules, it’s been my sneaking [...]

Summit: the End

Hobby Games: the 100 Best are on the table, though, and it looks sweet. Authors have been coming by to pick up their copies here at the [...]

Will it be month of no lunches?

Ah, 4:10pm and once again I’ve had no lunch. It’s not as bad as it could be, I guess, since I didn’t have “breakfast” until noon…

Preparing for GenCon is always insane for us but this year seems to be worse than usual. I was a very bad girl this weekend as I didn’t work [...]
