The inaugural issue of RPGNow Downloader Monthly. With the huge influx of publishers to the electronic delivery market, we decided to create a monthly electronic magazine that would help you sort through the cornucopia of available products. We'll use this magazine to highlight top sellers, provide reviews, relate news, and generally show off what e-publishers can do. Not only that, but each issue will give you some entertaining, useful or interesting articles and columns provided by the publishers who contribute to the phenomenon that is RPGNow.
RPGNow brings you a wide array of gaming products that you can?t get at your local store. We release products before they go to print. We provide electronic copies of out-of-print gaming supplements. We have software that you can use to make your game faster, better organized, and more fun. We have innovative and new custom gaming products, and you can?t get them anywhere else. RPGNow livens up your gaming in ways that were never possible before now.
One recent news item that many of us are excited about is the advent of Print on Demand (POD). Now, you can purchase some of the books at RPGNow pre-printed and have them mailed to your home! This option allows publishers to create printed books at a reasonable cost, which allows our customers to get them affordably. Because they will be allowed to submit covers, spines, and all the interior pages, publishers will have control over how your finished product looks when you get it.
