It’s official … you can now get yourself a print-on-demand softcover book version of Convicts & Cthulhu. All you have to do is head over to this page on RPGNow and purchase either the print version of the book or the print & PDF combo.
As with the original PDF, the printed book is a “Pay-What-You-Want” title … now you may wonder how that works, given the fact that it obviously costs a certain amount of money to print and ship a physical book. The answer is simple: you can still pay whatever you want but the amount you type into the box must be AT LEAST the cost of producing the printed book (about USD $4.00). If you type an amount into the box that is more than the basic cost of printing, the rest of the money goes to Cthulhu Reborn — well, most of it anyway. After you’ve added the Pay-What-You-Want book to your shopping cart you’ll still need to add postage and handling as per a normal print book order from RPGNow or DrivethruRPG.
By my estimate, most folks should be able to get a POD copy of Convicts & Cthulhu made and shipped to them for around USD $9 or maybe even less. I figure that’s not too bad for a 96-page B&W roleplaying book with a nice glossy cover.
The test copy that I had printed turned out looking really nice BTW. The phone camera pic above probably doesn’t do justice to the finished product, but should give you some idea of what you’re buying.
