Firstly, love love love the preview that was just posted for AoC 4: Horror From Yuggoth
. I can't wait for this new AoC adventure. But what I noticed is at the bottom of the preview article it lists the other adventures in the Age of Cthulhu line, and what it does not post is AoC: Abominations of the Amazon
Why is that?
I was thrilled that Goodman Games offered an Age of Cthulhu adventure for Free RPG Day 2010. And for anyone who has not checked it out yet, Abomination of the Amazon is a fantastic adventure. I personally think that it should continue to be recognized and noted in all future postings about the AoC line.
Also, is there any reason why Abominations of the Amazon is not available as a free download from Goodman Games? It was offered for free on Free RPG Day 2010 as a printed copy, so why not have it available forever as a free electronic copy?
Here are a couple of reasons why I think AoC: Abominations of the Amazon should be available as a free download:
1. As I discovered through personal experience, there were a lot of FLGS that did not participate in Free RPG Day 2010. Thus, if a store did not participate, they were not able to provide the adventure to role-players who might be interested in trying out the AoC line. So I say a downloaded copy is better than nothing.
2. A free downloadable adventure could be a key marketing tool to entice fans to then invest in collecting the other AoC adventures.
