Hey tsathogga,

I was one of the lucky few :)
Now I just need to get my hands on the SW version. :)

Best regards,
Ronald

ok; I am going to work this out--that's right, no-reprint Bill is going to do an unlimited edition. I'll work out the specifics in the next few days. I do promise that a) the first edition willl indeed be unique and still collectable, and b) the 1000+ people who could not get the content will get it.

This wil likely involve a minor change tgo the cover to indicate "unlimited Edition" or something like that.

I don't do this--I am respectful of the collector's market--that being said, I feel like I am hosing all the folks who could not get it in the 12 hours it was on sale today if I don't--and that's just bad customer service.

I thought about a softcover--but its just too big to do that.

I'll work up the details tomorrow and let everyone know. I still have about 50 copies of the SW version (500 copies only) that will be for sale starting 9/26.

I am still in shock...so let me gather my wits. I can't tell you how scary it was to write that personal check for printing. Keep in mind its me; not a big corporation. I was hanging wayyyyy out there on this one.

Those Pathfinder Tomes are around $100,000 worth of merchandise. Sold out in pre-orders and in 12 hours of online sales. That's what I call cooking with steam.

Is there a preview available for the S&W pdf, to see a few pages before buying?

Congratulation to Bill, Matt, and all those involved in the project.  Well done! :)

Gee, Mrs. Cleaver ... That certainly is a lovely dress.

Yes, congrats Bill!  I have a lot of respect for someone that puts their ass on the line like that.

There's one on RPGnow, but it's filled with table of contents before it gets to any monsters. I will email Chuck and see if we can create a 2-3 page preview, because several people have asked this question.

EDIT: email sent to Chuck (layout); he's busy, so it might not be immediate. I don't have the technology to copy pages out of it or I'd post one myself.

800 pages!

"Bill used his abilities for entertainment and profit.  But when his gentle uncle Ben was killed by a falling copy of Tome of Horrors, he realized that with great power comes great responsibility."

When you count in the Pathfinder community, you realize that the Old School movement is actually the largest thing going on in role-playing games.  It is legitimate to count the Pathfinder community because the people who run Paizo are constantly affirming their respect for the Old School traditions.

The market is no longer in the millions, but within the circle of thousands (or tens of thousands) of core gamers, the sub-culture is still quite strong...as the enthusiasm for Tome of Horrors shows.  1000 copies of a $90 product sell out in under two days....that's gotta show you how strong the core community really is.

Again congrats to Bill and Matt for hitting a grand slam here.  I hope to be picking up a S&W version asap, I wonder if that version is going to be the dark horse here in the collectible market.

Just thought of a great topic for a panel at next year's NTGRPG con....."Scariest check you ever wrote, amount and why?".  :lol:
