I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    Wow… Isn’t CoC one of the most popular and printed RPGs today? Second only to DnD perhaps? But yet everyone wants to do the Kickstarter thing.

    It’s an influx of money to produce the product with little to no risk to the manufacturer. Who wouldn’t want to get on the KS bus?! 🙂

      Two guys who each own brick and mortar stores that sell RPGs of which I know both sell CoC. I know one will certainly not carry it now because 1. RPGs sell slowly now and 2. A kickstarted burns up a lot of people who WOULD have bought a copy and he’s left with trying to see to MIGHT buy a copy.

      Those copies tend to sit on the shelves a lot longer.
