Yes it was! *evil laughter* ;D

But people are free to take it back :)

I've done quite a bit of work on my map.
I've placed some more rivers, and the autumn forest.
Two more mountains. And all the borders of kingdoms in the eastern Aoni lands.
The water people are secretive but share intelligence from the far east.

I can think of why one wouldn't want to have a game published.

It costs in the neighborhood of 5,000 dollars US for a very limited run of books (We're talking about 500 or so.)  

And disturbutors generally want 70% of yoru profits, though I know a place that only asks half...

Yeah, you really can't make money with rolegames. Too few customers. Well, you could if you would make another MTG or AD&D... Apparently Twilight 2000 sold pretty well since they made second edition of it. But with rolegame with book it could do the trick. And, of course there is possibility to try something new... Like distributing RPG in electronic format! If we're honest 70% of rulebook you read only once... Rest you need several times during game. Those pages could be printed easily by enduser if they are done informative and short (without pics, only scarts and sheets and base rules in easy format). What about copyprotection? Who need copyprotection? Just make it so cheap that people will want to support you. Plus when buying the game legally one could achieve characters, maps and other fancy stuff for free. Rules could be in pdf-format, for example.

If I'm right this is something that has done never before. I would gladly pay, let's say 5 € or 10 € for a good RPG... And if there were forum like this to support that RPG - just think how fans could help to create the world and hone rules! And those who have paid for game would get "benefactor" status in forum...

I think it would be cheap way to make profit if one would have enough faith for his product.

IF SOMEONE WANTS TO USE THIS IDEA, JUST USE IT!

Open source RPG ;D
I've always wanted people to do the hard work for me :)

Perhaps some day in the future I could have a community site for my world.
Not just a forum, an entire community system, with all existing material in a depot.

Each member can have a personal page and pages for their characters.
The possibilities are endless.

Yes. It's damn versatile idea... Maybe I use it myself too... If I ever get my "forever" project finished...

My whole Aoni project has always been open for anyone to contribute, but I haven't the skills to create a proper site for it... And I haven't made an effort to spread the word...  ::)
