    OBS - Monopolies and their TOC. (Split off thread).

    Never took you for a goddamn traitor. Nah, I browse the threads as a guest sometimes, especially for games I might want to know about that don’t get traction here. I just have no interest in logging back in and engaging. The Pub alone gets that short straw.

    See? This guy gets it.

    I shouldn’t be trusted with much, but especially not money.

    OBS - Monopolies and their TOC. (Split off thread).

    Yeah, that was at least two reviewer program heads ago (I don’t know who is over it now). The second guy who ran it while I was in the program denied any such policy so it could well have been either a policy that changed or an employee acting on their own (as they were known for having a very...

    OBS - Monopolies and their TOC. (Split off thread).

    Yeah me, as a consumer? I’m fine with just letting everything filter through my feed and deciding on my own if I want to buy it. But that’s how I’ve always approached content in any medium. I do appreciate a heads up like a rating system, but even then, what I actually like and dislike often...

    OBS - Monopolies and their TOC. (Split off thread).

    If I had Elon Musk Money and bought OBS tomorrow, my personal approach would put very few restrictions on what we hosted, but I’d have a heavily customizable personal shopping experience designed and implemented. A rating/content system for customers to filter as desired. Further filters for...

    How effective would a chainsaw be in melee combat?

    Ash uses it just fine to kill Deadites.

    OBS - Monopolies and their TOC. (Split off thread).

    And that’s fine. I’m just saying there’s a difference between paying extra for exclusives as a smaller dog in the fight (compared to Steam) and strong arming a bigger cut as the biggest dog in the fight (as OBS does). As a consumer, the only times I’ve ever spent money at Epic is for Darkest...

    OBS - Monopolies and their TOC. (Split off thread).

    I could be wrong, but my understanding is Epic at least pays extra for the exclusivity, rather than taking more. Am I incorrect on that? I can’t see how they could otherwise strong arm people when Steam is the big dog in that room.

    And having just checked the Amazon Comics storefront, compared to the old Comixology storefront? It's traaaaaaaaash and the same would absolutely kill smaller companies in comparison to what DriveThru does.

    OBS - Monopolies and their TOC. (Split off thread).

    I do stand somewhat corrected. Looks like they just updated the app to function as a reader again. Until recently, I was directed to Amazon's app to find my purchases and it routinely cross referenced with physical media, or would only tell me that I had "previously acquired" the books in...

    OBS - Monopolies and their TOC. (Split off thread).

    To be fair, they bought Comixology and then proceeded to absolutely mangle it to the point of being unusable by folding it into the Amazon Store. I don't think it'll ever be a destination for niche RPG purchases.

    Silly question about the Pub's software

    I find it remarkably easy to ignore most threads. I have made judicious use of the ignoring posters feature, though.

    Featured. I had a review removed presumably at publisher insistence, followed by a strongly worded email from the then-head of the review program telling all reviewers that we were not to leave less than three star reviews due to the disproportionate impact on publishers or something to that effect.

    OBS - Monopolies and their TOC. (Split off thread).

    My guy, policy used to be that their Featured Reviewers couldn’t rate a product below three stars. I did it once and got my wrist slapped (I’m no longer a featured reviewer…until today I always assumed it was due to inactivity, but now I wonder if it came from pointing this out online). IMO...

    Savage Worlds: Pathfinder has landed

    Which is what the Rise of the Rune Lords conversion seems to say, too.

    Savage Worlds: Pathfinder has landed

    YMMV, but the old Fantasy Companion was kind of a waste of money outside of the bestiary, IMO. The new one has a better selection of Edges, Magic Items, monsters, and even playable races.

    Savage Worlds: Pathfinder has landed

    That's fair. Interestingly, I listened to people for years talking about converting D&D to Savage Worlds and saying you can't have all the combats because it's not the same kind of resource management game and what have you...only to find in doing a side by side with the original Rise of the...

    Savage Worlds: Pathfinder has landed

    Pretty much where I'm at. I'll probably get the AP in PDF, just in case I want to go back to running canned stuff.
