This could possible a 3e rare (the orginal d20 version).





 "BOOK OF EROTIC FANTASY D20 LICENSE TERMINATED, TO BE PUBLISHED NOW AS

OGL

PRODUCT



September 23, 2003 (SEATTLE, WA) Due to the recent addition of the

"quality

standards" provisions in the D20 System License, Valar Project, Inc.'s D20

license has been revoked for use with Book of Erotic Fantasy, effective

immediately. The company announces today that the Book of Erotic Fantasy

will no longer be published as a D20 product, instead Valar Project, Inc.

will be applying the Open Gaming License (OGL) to the game.



"We strongly believe in the quality and integrity of the Book of Erotic

Fantasy," says Valar Project, CEO Anthony Valterra. "Switching the product

to OGL allows us the creative freedom to publish an adult product, without

changing any of the game mechanics, that adds value and depth to your

fantasy roleplaying game."



Book of Erotic Fantasy provides rules for issues of sex, seduction, love,

marriage, conception, as well as other relationship issues, compatible

with

the world's best-selling fantasy roleplaying game. The Book of Erotic

Fantasy will also feature an exclusive Phil & Dixie cartoon. Originally

scheduled for an October release, the necessary changes to make the

product

an OGL complaint product will move the Book of Erotic Fantasy's release to

November 2003 (MSRP $34.95).



Further, Valar Project, Inc. is obligated to request that all distributors

and retailers in possession of the 32-page Gen Con exclusive Book of

Erotic

Fantasy preview immediately remove them from distribution. Distributors

and

retailers should either destroy the products and certify destruction to

Valar Project, or return them to Valar Project for destruction. Valar

Project will be contacting and working with distributors and retailers to

ensure destruction of the previews.

information and media requests, please contact Jenny Bendel at

race, orientation and preferences, Valar Project, Inc. will strive to

Wow! $400 seems like about $360 or so too much.

Retailers DESTROYING a product they have paid for and that most surely will become a hot item? I'd never, ever do such a thing and I wonder if Americans could be forced in doing so. Here I'd not I suppose and if somebody asked me to do it, well, they would have to talk to my lawyer first...



I can't believe this unless it's another publicity move. Valterra (hey, another Italian - American  :wink: ) is a freaking genius about promoting his products.
