For all the hubbub surrounding 4th Edition, and the constant internet threads surrounding “controversy” of publishers choosing to produce compatible releases without signing the GSL….
After the first week of sales of our 4E product, Scourge of the Rat-Men, I have to say that I’m disappointed.
The PDF is moving sluggishly (a hair less than we see for the first week of a Superlink release, in fact), and we’ve sold only a bare handful of print copies. Not what I expected, at all. I wasn’t banking on cornering the market, but I figured being pretty much the first available third-party 4E adventure would have led to a sales spike of some sort….
Publishers thinking that anything *remotely* like the boom of the 3rd Edition days is going to happen with 4E should seriously rethink their plans.
