Realizing that this is way out ahead of the curve, this book really needs to be submitted to the Ennies committee for consideration. Books 1 & 2 were fantastic! This book, if it lives up to the what it's supposed to be (haven't ordered yet), will set a new bar for DM tools of excellence!Between you and me (and the necromancer forum frequenters) the Ennies want -way-too-many- free copies for what they actually do for 3rd party publishers. This is of course my own personal opinion, so take it with a grain of salt (or several, on the rim of a margarita glass if you prefer).

As to wanting facts, you claim "many people in the industry" feel negative about the ENnies, so what are your facts?

Saying Sasha is being "silly" and that her opinion on entering the ennies is "WAY over-played" is rude. There are many people in the industry who feel that way. Personally, I like how Bill and the FGG guys take care of their own rather than try to win awards. But it's great how other people understand FGG finances so well. But more impotantly, who cares about the ennies? Are you really going to buy a book because some internet dudes stick a gold star on it? As far as ennies=exposure=sales, I would like to see some evidence, from several sources. Two years ago, WOTC won a bunch for their Star Wars line - how is that going for them, now? Line cancelled. Let's see some data from third parties that show a spike in sales after winning an ennie.

Many of our books are priced to make an affordable-to-the-consumer profit and discounted on pre-order.Not knowing our printing costs, or the printing costs of any other company, anyone saying anything about how little it affects the bottom line for a "measly X copies" simply has no basis for an argument.While FGG has currently moved from being a micro-publisher to a small publisher... that's still not a lot of money. It's still not a living wage for anyone involved. When every Tome of Horrors Complete and Tome of Adventure Design is money that comes out of your pocket to pay the rent and bills we'll see how insignificant the cost is and how silly someone is for being concerned about it.

Again, I sure didn't mean to be rude, to Sasha or to you, MFB. Please accept my aplogy for being rude and for offending your sensitivities.

Well I got mine in the mail the day after they shipped, so yes I believe they have shipped.
