So here is a question for the stalwarts and the Old Guard!
We are fast approaching the 7th printing of the PHB. Now my intent is just do a little more cleaning, keep the same cover, and reprint the book. I will probably kickstart the book just to get the exposure. However, a very good friend of mine, who has worked with consolidation in this biz for almost as long as TLG has been around, has told me that we need to do something different with the Players Handbook. Not a new addition, but something to make the retail shops stand up and take notice.
Here are some ideas I've pondered.
1) Taking chapter 1 from the CKG and putting it in the PH and selling it as a complete game.
2) A flip book with the M&T, making it even a more complete game.
3) Running a kickstarter to fund it and drop the price to 19.99 (he really wants this price back so that it can compete with D&D 5)
None of these ideas seem to make it pop in my book. Though I'm a little fond of #3.
