Monte Cook’s new project, Dungeon a Day has gone live. Practically everything except the player’s intro is for subscribers only so there is no way of test the content before buying. Even the forums are blocked so you cannot see what people are saying about the content. This is a mistake I think. Having a whole bunch of free, usable content as a taster seems like a no-brainer to me. Otherwise, how will anyone know if its worth buying?
Membership is $10 a month or $84 for ‘charter membership’ and $27 for quarter.
Here is the blurb from the press release:
Dungeonaday.com will be updated every weekday with a major encounter, plus frequent blog and podcast updates, monthly bonus encounters, and more. Members will find an active forum where they can ask questions, give feedback to Monte, exchange tips and ideas with each other, and help build Dungeonaday.com into a community of dungeon (and dragon) enthusiasts. The site features cartography from award-winning artist Ed Bourelle. It utilizes the Open Gaming License and its 3rd-edition compatible rules, but is easily used with other editions as well. Memberships are available on an annual, quarterly, or monthly basis, but those starting a year’s subscription in March will become charter members at a special discount rate of $84 per year. The material presented on the site is suitable for characters of all levels and any fantasy campaign.
