Title: Tough as ails ... ahem
Post by: Matt Snyder on August 16, 2002, 03:23:15 PM
Well, folks, I've good news and (somewhat) bad news.

I always like to start with the bad news, so here it is. I haven't got the darn Paypal system set up yet. Haven't even started the dirty work. So it goes. I hope to have it up and running by next week.

The good news is that I've been busy doing a "revised" print run of Dust Devils. I just put together 20 spanking new copies of the game, and they are almost identical to those offered at GenCon.

But they're better, thanks to Michael S. Miller and Adam Jury, who both sent me FANTASTIC edits to improve the game, typos, layout, etc. These guys did a superb job of trying to clean up the mess I put together in one helluva hurry before GenCon, and the "revised" version of Dust Devils is so much better for it.

But of the mos times ..  (Sorry, inside joke. Ask Jason Blair)

Sign me up for one of those copies!  Mos times, I really regret letting some other varmint snatch-up a copy of Dust Devils instead of grabbing one for meself.

Gordon - probably got the inside joke all wrong, but Jason ain't talkin'

Tarnation, you did that quickly. I hadn't even had the chance to prod you to substitute the original character of Reggie for Zeke Munro in the sample scenario. Next printing maybe?

And it sure as hell wasn't chopped liver to start with!

You did include a "What Is A Rolyplaying Game?" section, right?

Well I, for one, would be fascinated to find out what a "Rolyplaying Game" is.

Sounds good, Matt.  I don't have any issues with my "flawed" copy of Dust Devils though.

Regarding the paypal thing Matt, if you have a PP account already the button is simplicity itself.  Just go to your account, select the "sell" tab and run their button creation wizard.  Choose which button you want, how much to charge for shipping (you can even do a full shopping cart once you have more than 1 product).  When done it spits out the exact HTML to cut and paste into your site.

Works great...as long as you remember not to add the shipping and handling in twice ;-)
