#RPGaDay2017 Day 24: No such thing as a free supplement

This week of #RPGaDay2017is just flying by… Today’s question is about freebies:

August 24: Share a Pay-What-You-Want publisher who should be charging more.

This is a tricky subject. Pay-What-You-Want products are a wonderful way to get people interested in a publisher’s products. I think they have a key place in the modern market of RPGs.  I have thought long and hard about this one, because I couldn’t think of a publisher to answer this question…

Then I thought of the More Purple More Better interactive sheets in the Dungeon Masters Guild. The interactive character sheets, spell sheets and adventure log sheets are a delight. They include Arcana Unearthed content, making them even more useful than the D&D Beyond character builder if you are integrating those rules into your campaign.

The sheets creator has set up a Patreon to support these efforts. But I think they should charge at least a minimum for the sheets in the Dungeon Masters Guild. That’s my two copper pieces in this matter. What would be your answer to this topic? Let us know here in the comments or tag us in social media.

The companion to this series of posts are our vide responses to the questions of #RPGaDay2017 over at the Desde la Fosa YouTube channel. Me and the team at Desde la Fosa are recording our answers in Spanish. If you speak the language we appreciate the views, if you don’t, we are thankful for any shares.

Welcome reader, thanks for taking the time to find out just who I am! My name is Roberto, although in the Internet I usually go by the name of Sunglar. Long time pen & paper RPG player, mostly a GM for the better part of that time; some will say that’s because of my love of telling a good story, others because I’m a control freak, but that’s debatable… I was born, raised, and still live in Puerto Rico, an island in the Caribbean, with a small but active gaming community.

I’ve played RPGs for 30 years, and for most of that time I played D&D in all its various permutations, including Pathfinder and I'm currently playing D&D 5th edition. Other games my regular gaming group has played over the last few years include Mutants & Masterminds and Savage Worlds, but I have played many other games through the years, and plan to play many more. I am a compulsive homebrewer and rarely play a campaign I have not created myself.

You can follow me on Twitter as @Sunglar, and find me in Google+ also as Sunglar. I'm very active in Facebook where you can find me posting regularly in the Puerto Rico Role Players group. Looking forward to hearing from you!
