Pay to Play Pen and Paper: Part Two

I would like to thank everyone who commented on my last post. I had over 250 hits, and quite a few comments. It seems that I touched a nerve.
First I would like to clarify a few things. I was referring mainly to D&D 4th Edition. Also, I'm not trying to make money. I DM my campaign at a small Independent Bookstore who I wish very much to keep open. It's becoming more apparent that D&D 4th Edition is not really a "Pen and Paper" game anymore. Applying '80s economics to this game is difficult. Now, I read the posts. I realize that you don't need all that stuff to play. Does it make it more fun, in my opinion, yes.
Here are some things that I've also decided. I won't allow illegally downloaded 4th Ed. PDF's at my table anymore. Also, before a campaign I will take a survey of my players. I'm going to let them decide what we'll do, and what they are willing to invest and we'll run with that. Again thanks for your comments.

  1. Back in the day, when i worked in a fairly liberal USAF office, You were alloud MP3s on your computer so long as you could prove that you owned a hard copy of the song. Most of my 4th Ed pdfs are like that, where they were downloaded "illegally" but only because its easier to do a search on "escape" than page through the handbook to find it.

    Other than that, sounds great! I want to be a player in your campaign!!!


Let me know what you think. Please watch the language.
