I don't jump into these conversations very often and I probably shouldn't now - but I'm going to tred where fools dare:

I have to disagree emphatically with my namesake and agree with the ever-talented Simon Bray. Issaries is a small business that relies on a small market of consumers. The core market for Issaries is US. If we subscribers to the HW:Digest and the Glorantha:Digest don't buy their products, they will go under. It is as simple as that.

My advice is: if you are interested in seeing more Issaries products in the future, purchase every Issaries product in the present. Everything. Heck, buy some things twice - I sure have.
