A thread to follow for those interested in WOTC's stance on PDF's

From Jack99 on ENWorld:

"So, I was one of those who were very sad when WotC decided to pull the plug on their PDF's. I completely understand why WotC think they needed to do it, but that doesn't change the fact that I lost a very handy tool for my work as a dungeon master.

Thank god I could still cancel the order on the e-book reader I had made - A few weeks later and I would have been SOL.

Anyway, this thread is primarily here to remind our good friends at WotC that we still expect an alternative, as we were promised. It would also be mighty nice if we at some point could get an idea on how this project is coming along.

It's now been almost 4 months (okay, 3½ at least) since the PDF's were withdrawn, and I think it is about time that we start hearing what WotC are cooking up.

While we are waiting for an answer, I guess we could talk about what possibilities there are, as to replace the PDF's. I must admit that I know very little of these things, so my best suggestion would be to re-release PDF's again, but I am guessing that won't fly"

Predicting the thread's imminent closure on ENWorld, for daring to publicly call out WOTC on something and make them feel in any way uncomfortable, the chances of the question getting answered can also be discussed over on theRPGSite. It's where I've been hanging out these days---a great board, mostly unmoderated and not for people whose feelings are easily hurt.

  1. I guess I'll read it in a few years when ENWorld loads. Geez.

    By the way, Joe, I don't know if I ever welcomed you to the theRPGsite! Just in case, welcome!
