Prince of Darkness, our revised and expanded edition of Oliver Johnsonâ€™s classic Dragon Warriors campaign from 1986, will be appearing in games shops around the world in the first week of November. But you can see it before that, as weâ€™ve released it as a digital edition today. You can download Prince of Darkness from DriveThruRPG right now, in PDF format, for the princely price of US$12.95.
This is an experiment. It doesnâ€™t mean that all our future books will be released as PDFs before they hit print, or that weâ€™ll be moving entirely to electronic publishing, or anything like that. Itâ€™s just a test to see how the numbers compare and what shape the graphs make.
(The truth is, Magnum Opusâ€™s director is getting asked more and more often about the business of ebooks and digital publishing, and analysing sales data like this is a way that he can make sure he knows what heâ€™s talking about.)
