Yep.John Wick will be the first to tell you that Suplements don't sell but without them a game will die....

..its a catch 22.

And one thing I am very concerned about with GLorantha is that we don't go down the road that was walked by Task Force Games -- producing an ever more esoteric and unapproachable game for an ever shrinking circle of fans.

The game's got to be approachable from a neophyte level.  

New blood folks. Not infinitely recursive esoterica.

If something's useable by a new-ish narrator and his folks, its going to sell a heck of a lot better than a list of kings from God Time which... Sigh. I like GRoY but I can't find as much use for it as I'd like.

Me too. I'm buying stuff for friends as presents. =) I've already tainted two other gaming groups.
