Something else to consider are the likely purchase totals and how that factors into their transaction costs. Most payment processors charge somewhere around $0.30 + 2.9% per transaction. On a $1 purchase, DriveThruRPG ends up paying $0.33, more than 30%. On $2 it’s $0.36.

Lets say they have a team of five developers and they’re paying them somewhere between $60k and $100k. That amounts to somewhere between $25k–$42k per month in costs for developers alone, not to mention the rest of the staff and management.

The questions that come to mind to me are: - How many developers do they employ? - How many other employees do they employ? - How much do they spend storing and serving files? - How much do they spend on servers? All of that costs money, the employees the most of the lot.

A tweet from the heart. Co-host Dave and I decided at breakfast this morning, surrounded by gamers of all types, that the more time we spend with gamers, the more we appreciate the welcome, the friendliness and the love of game playing folk. Please retweet this to everyone else.

Where did you get that dice tray? It looks great.

This one is far easier because I haven’t been playing that long and I haven’t played that many. 1. D&D 5e 2. D&D 4e 3. Coriolis 4. Dungeon Crawl Classics 5. Forbidden Lands

I won’t list them in order, because I’d be wrong about it. - Day of Defeat (Half-Life mod) - Counter-Strike - World of Warcraft - Morrowind - Stardew Valley

Maybe use something like MDWiki?

I’m guessing those limited edition Up pins aren’t coming to ?

I can enjoy them either way, *but* I know that *I* enjoy them more when I get to play or run them. I won’t tell other people how to have fun, but I’d likely encourage folks who don’t play to give it a shot.

I’d be happy to. I think you need to follow me before we can DM though.

I’ll add a +1 to Tha Black Hack 2e. Such a great little system and I keep thinking about hacking it for other settings, sci-fi/Star Wars in particular.

is the Spotify Premium with Hulu still available? I don’t see that option when I go to change my subscription.

So if you’re even half-way interested, I recommend giving it a shot and just poking at it a bit. If you do decide to try, it’d help if you use my referral link as we both get a little credit if you opt to get a premium account:

I suspect I’m one of very few users of Notion using it to store RPG prep notes, but for my purposes so far, it’s great! (Don’t look at these screenshots if you’re in my Coriolis game! You’ve been warned!)

So that leads me to where I’m at now: . It gives me the flexibility of Markdown while adding light database functionality with the ability to change the view of the data (e.g. you can see a list or a table or Kanban cards).

Then I tried multiple notes within and the links were great, as was the formatting, I was starting to get somewhere, _but_ it was a series of notes among my other notes and I wanted a bit more structure than what it offered. (Bear is still the best notes app.)

Next, I tried a notebook and it made things hard to add to categories/sections, so I opted for index cards and those worked rather well, but I will *always* gravitate toward digital tools and while I appreciated the simplicity, it became a balancing act during the game.

First, let’s talk about what didn’t work. I started with Trello as a lot of folks on recommended it, and it was free, and mirrored index cards. It worked alright, but I always felt like relevant data was buried and hard to find at glance.
