Erik Mona, Publisher at Paizo, commented over at Grognardia on the fact that Pathfinder has sold out their first print run. Cheering news for Pathfinder and OSR/Neoclassical gamers alike:
"Thanks, guys. I appreciate the kind words even (or perhaps especially) from those of you who have no stake in the product because you've got a different game of choice. From where I sit, ANY success in the RPG industry is worth cheering about.
And while we have not released sales figures, I can say that we don't consider 10,000 units "hugely ambitious," and we'll be bringing well more than 1000 copies to Gen Con. Still, I'm worried about selling out, because the game appears to be moving much faster than any of us anticipated.
And while we have not formally thrown our hats into the "old school" or rules-light field, our hearts are very sympathetic to the cause, and I wouldn't be too surprised to see something down the road.
First things first, of course.
Many of us have long-hoped that Paizo would turn part of their attentions towards a classically-designed/OSR entry. It would appear this newest comment gives us fresh hope that it just may eventually happen.
