Sales data update, for the benefit of other DW publishers!

Transparency! Here’s DriveThru sales for Planarch Codex: Dark Heart of the Dreamer, updated with April data. Earlier today it passed 200 lifetime sales, which is pretty cool (and doesn’t include copies to Kickstarter backers). http://rpg.drivethrustuff.com/product/110283/Dark-Heart-of-the-Dreamer
Still hovering around 12 sales a week, though for a while it looked like we might be lower than 10 for April. But then Judd Karlman started his “love letters” thread, which apparently sold nearly ten copies by itself. It’s really stunning how much one great post by an excited player really makes a difference in sales and how easily we can track that in the internet era.
Really, Planarch has benefited from the beginning by having a great batch of supporters, some of whom I’ve known for a while and some that are completely new to me. Multiple people are still posting about the supplement every week (typically because they’re actually running it!), both when it works for them and when they have issues, which is great and helpful. Even when it doesn’t work, it gives me ideas about things I should post about or new materials I could create to make the concepts more accessible and useful.
