Sorry to hear about this James. I hope that everything works out for you in the future. Dollars are tight these days and unfortunately most of us have to pick and choose which products we can buy, even though we want them all.

Sorry to hear that James. Don't be too hard on yourself, it's tough times for most markets and it's even harder for this small niche market.

You should be proud that you tried, that you had the guts to try and follow your dream. I'm sure that's not how you feel right now, but this is what all of us think, believe me.

Good luck with what's next for you!

Just went to RPGnow and picked up the last few pdfs of James' I hadn't yet purchased. The last two Monstrous Menaces, the second Calamitous Curses, and the 100 Street Vendors.

The latter I heartily recommend for anyone needing to populate their city with a thriving economy. While geared for the City State of the Invincible Overlord, each vendor can easily be ported over to your own city. The book is arranged alphabetically by type of vendor. Each vendor is then named, given C&C stats (these are not lvl 0 folks, not all are human, and their alignments, classes, and levels vary considerably - at least one is a demon!), a physical description, description of his vending cart/wagon and its goods, and some notes on personality. Also given is their usual location in the CSIO. All but the latter is easily used in your own city. This is a fantastic resource for any CK who enjoys a city campaign. Grab it while you still can!

Sorry to hear that dude. From one indie publisher to another, it's a tough world this business. But at least you can say you tried it and gave it your best shot.

If you ever want to do some hobby writing Big Iron Vault is always opened to your writing for submissions etc.

Not true at all- you did an impressive job of breathing life into the Wilderlands. And your work (and your very high-quality website) was pretty inspirational to others. Thank you again and looking forward to seeing you around the boards here or there.
