If you've seen the recent kerfluffle with Wizards of the Coast ceasing all online pdf sales, you still have until the end of today to purchase WotC/TSR files from Paizo. My recommendation? The Rules Cyclopedia for $5 and some of the classic modules. At the time I post this, you've got only a few hours left.
If you see this on 4/7/09 after about 12 noon (according to Erik Mona), sorry about your luck, but its probably too late.
If you were like me and downloaded a bunch of WotC products from RPGNow, thinking you could download them again up to 5 times if need be, I feel your pain. I hope WotC comes to some resolution and has PDFs available again soon, but one thing's for sure: they continue to fail epically in any sort of customer relations aspect. OK, fight piracy, whatever, but this is a really crappy thing to do to folks who have already bought your products from RPGNow, DTRPG, or Paizo. Especially in regards to 1e & 2e pdfs. Was illegal piracy really killing you on those, WotC? Items that haven't been in print in 3 decades? Do you think this would be a way to fix anything?
I'm irritated. Doubtless things will look a bit brighter or clearer tomorrow. But as a gamer whose main D&D purchases were from previous edition, WotC has just become about 99% less useful to me as a company.
And if you do offers pdfs again, WotC, you can bet I'm not partaking. If this no-notice B.S. happens once, what's to keep you from yanking the rug out again?
