Unlike hero lab which only contains monster stats, a realm is most likely going to duplicate all the information in a publication so I can't see any publisher willing to allow that.

However, I would hope that they would allow new creations/adventures for existing IP.

Well, if they go the paizo way and require you to buy the original publication, it could work out.

Yes, this would be cool, but also possibly out of the price range for most small companies to implement the required API between the LWD and their own sales web sites.

Too bad they just couldn't work with Drivethrurpg for that feature since most companies sell PDFs through them.

Working with Bits & Mortar would be even better since you get the pdf for free when you buy the hard copy. As a brick and mortar store owner, I certainly appreciate what they are doing.

I wish more companies worked with Bits and Mortar. I'd much rather do business with my FLGS than Amazon or DriveThruRPG.

It would be interesting to see how they could set that up for brick and mortar stores. My gaming budget is spread pretty evenly between the net and actual stores. I was wondering about the buy print get PDF. It is only certain companies that do that if memory serves, correct?

As somebody said at the GAMA trade show last month, it is the best but most underused deal out there. There are more companies doing it now but most are mid-sized like Cubicle 7. Local stores also need to sign up for it so it can be used. We are actually debating getting bookmarks made so people can quickly see what qualifies.

Gord,

The bookmark idea is pretty amazing. I know a few game store owners so if there is a website I will send them that way. It would be interesting to have a similar process for Realm works. Person buys book in store, gets pdf for free, which in turn unlocks their ability to purchase realmworks files.

I don't know if this info is confidential, but if not, it would be great if LWD could lay open what would be needed from their side to make things like this work.

Interface or API definition or something...
