I am finishing up some final edits on the main rules book today, then back to Mr. Marc Pavone for a final eyeball and okay. Once that is complete I will do layout and make a print test book. Once I see all is as it should be, the core rules book goes up for sale. How much will it be?
It will cost you the production cost of the book with no mark-up what so-ever. I won't make a dime from sales of the rules book to you. They are, outside of shipping and production cost of the booklet, free. I will not post a PDF of the full rules booklet, nor make one for sale. Pocket mods of core rules subsystems will remain free to download as they are currently.
Instead of making a profit from rules sales, I am going to ask for you for a donation. Whatever you think is right or what you value the game at is up to you. Maybe it's $1, maybe its $1000. Whatever that amount is, if any, I leave to you to decide. I am designating this as:
The Rogue Space Program
Your support of the program will further the exploration and creation of more Rogue Space materials. A lack of support means an abandonment of further Rogue Space Exploration.
Beyond just strict donations, my wife is going to create some unique Rogue Space Program logo items which you will be able to purchase. Proceeds from sales, will support The Rogue Space Program.
Thanks for your patience, I value your participation in The Rogue Space Program and look forward to delivering the rules book to you soon.
