    Roll20's Latest Usage Report: D&D Steady, Cthulhu Down!

    Yes! It was why I was more pessimistic in my PF2 outlook - it confirmed certain cases from the Roll20 numbers like more people are still playing PF1 than PF2. If they release 2021 numbers, I'll be watching to see whether PF2 will ever overtake PF1 consistently.

    Roll20's Latest Usage Report: D&D Steady, Cthulhu Down!

    That's really interesting! Thanks for finding that. Do you have a link? Do they send out updates regularly? Yes, this is actually a game changer for a lot of reason. First, until this, the only VTTs that I knew published table numbers (Roll20, Fantasy Grounds) had PF2 lagging PF1 use. One could...

    Roll20's Latest Usage Report: D&D Steady, Cthulhu Down!

    Maybe is the best I would say. All I would confidently say is it's not obvious that more people are playing on Foundry. I think if one is a doubter, you'll likely say it's not true more people play on Foundry (I fall in this camp based on what I've seen so far). However, if you are a booster...

    Roll20's Latest Usage Report: D&D Steady, Cthulhu Down!

    That's a very good point! I stand corrected. Yes. Another way to handle that is to divide the Roll20 numbers by an average number of players. Say a game on average is four players and a DM. The 120,000 accounts playing PF2 is then 24,000 games. With my generous estimates, if a quarter of...

    Roll20's Latest Usage Report: D&D Steady, Cthulhu Down!

    A few things based on my own experience dealing with incomplete data sets and trying to draw conclusions from them. Yes, it would be nice, but you can still use the data available. If the absolute numbers aren't there, you can look at the trends in the data for a story about how a product is...

    Paizo Paizo Leadership Team Update

    Just when it comes to the room situation, I think you're reading too much into this. When working at conventions, I've seen or experienced companies putting one, two, or even four people in a room. A one person per room policy isn't that strange or an admission of fault if this is the route they...

    Pathfinder 2E Paizo drops use of the word phylactery

    While I do support your general point, this response is frustrating to me. I'm full Greek, and many of us feel a connection with our past such that there is no heritage distinction between modern and ancient Greeks. Depending on the situation, it can affect "real people". I routinely experience...

    WotC WotC reported 50% growth over 2020!

    True but I'll add clarifications too. You mentioned the Avalon Hill and other games items. Consumer Products segment was announed in Feb 2021. I need to confirm this, but I believe that means that even while the management might have been under WotC for much od the year, those items still are...

    WotC WotC reported 50% growth over 2020!

    Ask and you shall receive. You just need to do a little research and use some google-fu. So I wasn't able to parse the latest earnings report, but I can find information for the end of 2020. According to Forbes, Magic made $581.2 million in 2020. ICv2 notes that WotC made $816 million in sales...

    WotC WotC reported 50% growth over 2020!

    Have you gone through past Hasbro quarterly earning reports? I bet you'll find that information there. It's the benefit of publically traded companies. They often gove numbers like that for major units or divisions.

    D&D 5E 5E Books and Amazon Sales Rank

    Funny thing about calling any of these "duds." These rankings, from the research I did in trying to see if you could get an estimate of sales from the sales rank, are a combination of monthly sales and daily sales. Based on my own observations, when you get into the thousands range the rank can...

    TSR LaNasa is back, and working with TSR Hobbies

    I don't think anyone answered this yet, but all LLC means is that if you sue TSR for some reason, you can't sue board members for their personal finances. When I was in college, one of the groups I was a member of looked into what it would take because there was a slight chance that people could...

    Paizo Paizo Launches Community Content Program

    Because no one has ever had any issue with the DMCA when it comes to gaming. Your common sense is wrong here, especially in the US where they are instituting the CASE act, which was specifically established to make it easier for those who can't afford the federal court system to rectify piracy...

    Paizo Paizo Freelancers Support Union

    I used to do contract work for Wizards and Hasbro at conventions (~2006-2012), although we saw ourselves as much as volunteers who wanted to play games and show others what we liked about them. I worked one or more convention floors each year depending on my availability and what WOTC needed...

    Paizo Paizo Launches Community Content Program

    That unfortunately is wrong with respect to intellectual property law in the US at least. Concerning copyright, you can be sued for statutory damages if material is registered with the U.S. Copyright Office, even if you sell nothing. For trademark, there's such a thing as dilution and companies...
