So Evil Hat has released their two new Fate game and also released a new model of how they would like people to pay for their games.
Fate Core System and Fate Accelerated Edition are now out.
And YOU decide how much you want to pay for them.
Think Fate Core is worth $20 (at 308 pages that is a steal for a core book) then pay 20. You only want to pay 5? Pay 5.
It is an interesting concept really and I am curious on how it will work out.
Tenkar has listed a number of OSR Pay What You Want books including the very popular Teratic Tome and his own Minor Magiks & Miscellaneous Arcana Volume I.
I can't wait to see how all of this plays out really. I think it will be a success. You may say but won't people pay less than what you should be charging? Sure, but I think there will be more people buying. Honestly which one is better? Five people paying $5 for a pdf or 50 people paying a $1 for it? And you will get people that believe in supporting authors and game companies, so they will spend $10.
How about you all?
Would you do "Pay What You Want" for you books (game or novels or otherwise)?
