But that subscription is a matter of the choice you made for hosting. I know people that are hosting it on a rPi sitting off to the side of their desk. I was thinking about doing it, but decided to just use an EC2. I could get it cheaper with EKS, but EC2 is cheap enough, and I use the machine for other stuff.Yeah. Right now, I'm paying $8 per month to host Foundry VTT on Molten Hosting. My upload speed is crap (thanks Comcast), and I'm generally not thrilled by the idea of having connections directly to my desktop computer. So I kind of find the whole "Foundry doesn't need a subscription" argument a little disingenuous, considering I pay a subscription to have it hosted, as well as everyone else I know that uses it to GM with. That being said, Alchemy requires both the GM and players to subscribe if they play three or more characters on Alchemy ever. I... just don't see that happening, realistically.
I also find Alchemy's penchant for physical merchandise a little weird.
