This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

The Biggest small secret
« on: January 18, 2021, 08:12:39 PM »
Pssst… have you heard “the BIGGEST small secret”?
https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/341589/Gnew-Binston?affiliate_id=2005698
Those lucky enough to have seen the metropolis of Gnew Binston with their own eyes have returned with tales of outlandish inventions capable of being imagined only by the Gnomish mind.  But beyond the innocent tinkered gadgets and quirky machines lays a plot which may change the course of history, forever!

Gnew Binston is a 30 page, premade, drop in Gnomish metropolis, teeming with adventure, mystery, and quirkiness.  Filled with fascinating scientific uniqueness, Players are able to explore 14 keyed locations which offer interesting plot hooks, NPC’s, and challenges.   

Featuring:
•   Two full colour maps (2 Players and 2 Game Masters versions)
•   Metropolis background
•   14 locations with plot hooks
•   A choice to help two competing factions
•   Suggestions on how Players find Gnew Binston, ideas for offshoot quests, NPC interaction, furry friends, original art, various treasure, a unique puzzle, etc.

Drop this Gnomish metropolis into any campaign and watch as it grows into a distinctive favorite.

Hey everyone,
Something just caught my attention and I have to ask this question.  I just noticed that this thread received a lot of views within a very short amount of time compared to some of the other products listed.  That’s fantastic!  Apparently the name of the thread was inviting.  However, only a fraction actually looked at the drivethrurpg posting.  So here’s my question.  What’s preventing you from clicking any further or purchasing? 

•   No interest in the product?
•   Unhappy with the quality (what could be better?)
•   Is the price too high?  (30 pages for $1.99USD with full colour map and art, 0.07 cents a page)
•   Do you perceive the product as too childish?  (Most of the products are kid friendly, but not necessarily childish.)

Wolfhill is a hobby project for me and I’ve never had any illusions of making more than coffee money with it.  However, I want to create things that people actually want.  So what would make you more inclined to click that link button next time?  I’d love to hear from you.

BTW here is an small overall image of the product.


Cheers
The Wolfhill Goblin

That's just how marketing works, don't worry about it.
Obvious troll is obvious. RIP, Bill.

The thread title intrigued me, but I have no interest in a Gnome setting.
I include very, very few Gnome NPCs in my S&W game, and no "Tinkering" or "Machineries".

You are correct.  I guess I was just surprised by the amount of clicks on the thread and how few were on the page.  It was very disproportionate compared to other products I've posted in the past.  Most people who click on the thread usually click on the link.

Thank you for the response.  Gnomes aren't for everyone, I get it.  I knew that going into this project.  I did go very light-hearted with this one. 
I value your input.
