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.
