World on Fire... gone?
« on: October 06, 2009, 04:04:19 PM »
Prepping to reorder on Spycraft and Fantasycraft for the store and discovered that World on Fire was no longer listed on Alliance's website.  ??? Not just out of stock - it's gone.



I won't talk to my salesrep until tomorrow, but I figured Crafty would want to raise Cain with them ASAP.

Fanasycraft sales have been very good for me, BTW.  ;D Bravo!

Sadly, this appears to happen automatically when the book's sales fall below a certain threshold over a number of months, as determined by Alliance. The book's still available from ACD and other distributors.

If you only work through Alliance, drop us a line and we'll work something out.

Alliance has done a lot of damage to the smaller game companies. :( Their partner company, Diamond, did much the same to comics.

I really miss Chessex Distribution, they had a solid and knowledgeable staff, and supported the independent game companies very well.

But I do know what happens next.
