I’m not exactly sure where this belongs in the forums, but I need some help or a statement about the 3.0e/3.5e Dungeon Crawl Classics modules missing on SJ Games’ online store—e23.
I’ve always been interested in running these modules ever since I first discovered them, long before the release of 4.0e, but I never found an interested playgroup until recently. Because I was busy playing other games, I didn’t keep up with the news from WotC about the 3.0/3.5 retraction, and so when I went to buy DCC #35: Gazetteer of the Known Realms
from e23 I got—and still now get—a surprising message that says,
This publisher will not be selling this d20 product after December 31, 2008 - buy it now!
This is by no means an extensive list, but here are some other modules I found that are missing on e23:
This was very strange to me, because I’d also just bought DCC #0: Legends are Made, not Born on e23 without any problems. So, I went hunting for more information, and found this:
December 17 [2008?] - Last Call for 3.5
– On December 31, Goodman Games will stop selling its 3.5 products. This is the last call. Visit our online store
to purchase what is left of our 3.5 product at 50% off. For the rest of December, you can also visit our PDF store
to purchase 3.5 PDF e-books at $2 each. Remember – after December 31, they’re gone forever!
I’m sad I missed such an awesome sale, and it partly explained the message on e23, but it still didn’t answer my question about why I could still buy something that was apparently ‘gone forever’. So, again, I went hunting for more information, and found this:
November 11 [2009?] - 3.5 PDFs Available Again
– Still playing the previous edition? You’ll be glad to know that the complete library of Goodman Games 3.5 edition products are now available again via PDF e-book! Check out our PDF storefronts at RPGNow
to purchase now!
I didn’t see any mention of e23, but for the moment I was a happy camper: I could get these modules again, they weren’t actually ‘gone forever’! I signed up for an account on Paizo to try to get the missing PDFs from there, but unfortunately they don’t allow you to pay unless you’re doing it through a credit card.
I’m willing to try RPGNow next, but I thought I’d ask here first if there are any plans to update the missing modules on e23. I really would prefer to have all my PDFs from the same source.
