Eclipse Phase fans,
We're overdue to talk about a lot of different things—a lot of this stuff has been mentioned in Kickstarter backer updates or our mailing list but hasn't been relayed here. So here's the first in a series of posts to catch you up on what we've been doing lately, starting with Print on Demand first edition titles!
First up, a bit of philosophy:
- We want our titles to be accessible in as many formats as reasonably possible, for as long as possible.
- We want our core material (core rulebooks, major supplements) to be available in gaming stores, thus we produce print runs of them and sell those books to gaming distributors and stores.
And a bit of history:
When we started publishing Eclipse Phase Print on Demand was around but it wasn't integrated with DriveThruRPG, and it was generally more expensive than it is now. Thus we didn't go through the effort of making print versions of our small page count titles available via POD, and our large titles had full offset print runs — and in some cases, reprints! Hell yeah!
