Why do you thinknthat WotC financial people have access to Kobold Press or Goodman Games finances? Working under the assumption that past $750,000 a company is operating pure profit for a book might seem to be very reasonable from the data that WotC has access to or general MBA trained assumptions, because that MBA wouldn't set up a business that wasn't operating in profit by that point...and the marketing WotC had on offer as detailed in this thread is probably worth more than they were asking at 25% over $750,000. But might be a threat to a company operating on the cliff's edge that an MBA wouldn't factor into their assumptions.I don't believe that at all. They have those numbers at their fingertips. They are as likely to be out of touch about those numbers as they are about what players and DMs want out of the game. There's no way in hell that they haven't had long talks with some people who make those products or have employees who have done it themselves.
