Human rednecks just shoot up traffic signs. Alien rednecks take out comm satellites.

gmskarka comments on the state of the RPG industry. Comics & Games Retailer estimates: "Role-playing games were the hardest hit in 2005, with sales dropping around 45%." WTF, in one year RPG revenues were cut in half?!? Unless something unexpectedly tremendous happens, I think RPGs are doomed to further marginalization in the larger culture. The industry is already moving toward print-on-demand and PDF. Funky-smelling mimeographs would almost be a step up.

Larpies Update:
PLEASE NOTE: In order for you to maintain your eligibility for a LARPY Award, you must forward a videotape “master” containing at least one (1) minute of your LARP-nominated performance to our Hollywood production office no later than Friday, April 12, 2006.

Oh yeah? Well in order for me to maintain my cool, you must kiss my ass at my Inglewood habitation office no later than Saturday, April 1, 2006. By the way, April 12th is a Wednesday.

RPG drop-off

1-year figures for RPG sales are misleading. Because of the way WotC does business, sales come in waves. With the release of version 3.5, there was another wave. But once you have the core books, you don't need to keep buying shit. My personal purchases have dropped off about infinity percent in 2005, for comparison.
