Does anyone know if Fast Forward Entertainment ever released their products in PDF through websites like RPGDrivethru and RPGNow?

Did anyoone actually buy them?

I'm not sure, I don't ever remember them releasing anything in PDF at the time.  Do remember them getting in trouble with WotC and having to destroy some print products (of which I don't know) due to using material of Wizard's not in the ogl.

I don't remember any of their products being available in PDF either, however a number of the print products had extra material that was available online.

Interesting....I wonder why not.  :?

Some publishers had the idea that pdf files for sale would only facilitate the theft of their products.  This is, in fact, quite true.  However, some pdf sales and some piracy is better than no piracy because there are no sales at all.

It would be interesting to hear from James Ward on the rise and fall of Fast Forward Entertainment.  

(It occurs to me that he has probably already commented online.  Do any of you real poly-grognards know where?)

doesn't seem to be any.. but please note! It looks like you can get these web enhancements through The Way Back Machine!

ie.. http://web.archive.org/web/200306211623 ... estuff.cfm

It would be a good Idea to search all of the Way Back archive on Fast Foward here...
http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www ... games.com/

and get em now!! (a list of what is there would be nice from those slackers)
