Comments on 2010-09-08 Short Rules

Once again, I’d like to thank you for talking about economics, which is something I honestly hadn’t thought about when writing about my love of short games. It makes perfect sense, not that it makes me like it any more ;P

In related news, I’m somewhat dissapointed that Dungeon Slayers 4 will have 168 pages - even if we take into account it’s A5 instead of A4, all the existing supplements shold come up to about half of that page count. Talk about destroying an inherent quality.

Indeed, there we go…

Dungeon Slayers 1?
Dungeon Slayers 212 A4 pages
Dungeon Slayers 318 A4 pages
Dungeon Slayers 4168 A5 pages

Similarly, Frog God Games and Mythmere Games are merging. And what’s the first product? The Complete Swords & Wizardry rules. “It includes the ranger from SR, the paladin, thief, druid, assassin - character classes from the supplements.” I guess that’s cool for most people. It’s part of the new value proposition. It illustrates that most people like more pages to their rulebooks. Only a few of them realize after a while that they’re getting bogged down by the length of the very books they love.
