I don't think they will go web only. I think it will be an option once the web view comes out.

There are things I'd be willing to pay for as add on modules, I'd be willing to pay to support simply adding an API so 3rd party and amateur programmers could add on to RW. I'd even be willing to support a Kickstarter for that once the KS stretch goals are finally delivered.

I had the same thought a couple of years back...

Heh, yes that might be true. But also a lot of lessons were learned. So who knows

Sounds fine by me, if the pricing is not to high. Actually, Profantasy does something very similar with the Cartoghrapher's Annual, which I subscribe to each time again, even though I only use some of the Annuals.

Personally, I'd rather they use the same model as they do with HL. I'll happily pay for content - I expect the CM will get quite a lot of my "mad money" budget, just like HL gets a chunk of my budget for their added content.

First of all, I hope the holiday weekend went well for everyone. Everyone needs a bit of a break.

I know that the process of releasing a new big enhancement to any application is tricky, and crazy time consuming, so please take what I am going to say without any frustration or rush.

I am curious if there has been any update on the content market. I am going to start up DMing Rise of the Runelords at the beginning of January, and I would love to use Realm Works along with the Runelords content.

I remember reading there was a bit of a delay due to data input not happening by someone and maybe an issue with a connection/API, etc etc. All of which is fine.

So I guess my question is. If I were to start my Runelords game January 1st. Should I wait a bit? Or should I start inputting the early adventure into my own Runelords Realm? I know "official" word on release date might not be something you wish to put forward, just looking for hint on if I should put some effort into starting my own conversion of Runelords in the next month.

Were I in your shoes, I would not invest any dependence on content being released until it's actually released. If your goal is to start on January 1st, then do what you have to do to make sure you're prepared. If you would rather not do your own prep, then the content will be released when it's released.

I'm not trying to be critical or negative when I say that many deadlines have been missed, just pointing out the reality of the situation in the context of your question. If you have a scheduled start date, then make sure you're prepared.

I know you are right. I have been putting off making a "master" realm with a ton of data input. I wanted to just throw some money at it and make my life a bit easier.

I am really hoping the content market gets done soon, but I will continue to prepare as best I can. Maybe I should just start doing my own Data input and hope my work becomes irrelevant. If anything copying the data would be a good way to study the Adventure and the world a bit more.
