Steve Jackson Games Stakeholder Report

Every year Steve Jackson Games issues a stakeholders report explaining how the previous year went and setting priories for the next year, it is an interesting read.

The interesting thing for me was the classification of the Dungeon Fantasy Boxed Set as a failure due to cost over run and missing deadlines. This is sad but not surprising, I put in $250 for the project, they delivered a really great product and I wish my game group was more inclined to play this than they are. The fact is though, while DFRPG is a good idea in theory, the reality is, this type of gaming is better suited to D&D and anyone who seriously plays murder hobo games is going to play D&D. The scope of this project was just too big for the number of people who are really interested in it. Unfortunately, I can see the same thing happening with The Fantasy Trip.
