Thank You & a "Why We Do It" Picture to Make Your Day

Thank You & a "Why We Do It" Picture to Make Your Day

Hello All,

A few days ago, The Fattest Goblin send out a newsletter that explained the bind we were in, and your response and support has been welcomed -- so thank you all!

That sale mentioned in the newsletter, a deep discount on the Shadows over Vathak: Player's Guide, continues till the end of the weekend -- and especially as its a discount on the Print-on-Demands too, you might want to pick up copies now!

This is the Hardcover Print Exclusive cover, you can only have if you do a copy!

And so thank you to everyone picking up our products! But thank you also to everyone that's reached out, in public and in private, to talk about us and their favorite products, and suggesting "this is one of the good ones (game publishers)" etc. Its been very welcome here and it helps, it really does. There is a serious consideration to "profit" (this has to be a business, after all, or you're going to get a very different level of 'quality') but I also really quickly wanted to discuss how that "other side" matters to.

I think that any game designer has a special hope -- that they can be part of a "moment" for a gaming group. These moments are one of the things that's hard to explain to the non-gamers, and its -- while not unique per se to tabletop roleplaying -- its something that is more likely to come up I think than in some other mediums. 

Those moments are hard to explain, but a friend recently posted a picture a player of his took just as a their rogue (a new player herself to the game) rolled their third Natural 1 of the night! This friend is a "new" gamemaster, someone that didn't grow up playing and I don't think even got to play many games under anyone else before taking on the mantle and role of being the referee for the all-new players he's got. But I think you can see, in at least his expression, a kind of genuine joy that is a big part of what every designer, writer, publisher, etc. hopes a product they work on helps to facilitate:

[Used with permission, thanks Nate!]

I know a gotten to see a number of private messages to us here at Fat Goblin Games, and I I just wanted to thank you all for the support and I hope we've been able to help you enjoy a few special moments too!
