Your Whispering Homunculus Outsells AD&D

The Homunculus is king!Slavish followers of Kobold! It is I, the Whispering Homunculus.

You may recall the time I seized control of Wolfgang Baur’s mind, took over Kobold World Headquarters, and published my own book. How the kobolds wailed and gnashed their teeth in rage when they learned what I’d done! Too late! Too late! Hee-hee-heeee!*

But my irritating cackling is far from done! Because for two weeks in a row, Your Whispering Homunculus has outsold all three 1st edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons core rulebooks on Paizo.com.

Let me repeat that at slightly higher volume: FOR TWO WEEKS IN A ROW YOUR WHISPERING HOMUNCULUS HAS OUTSOLD ALL THREE 1ST EDITION AD&D CORE RULEBOOKS ON PAIZO.COM.

This proves that Your Whispering Homunculus is better than 1st edition AD&D. Which makes me, the Whispering Homunculus, the greatest roles-playing game designer in the history of the world! Better than Baur! Better than Cook! Better than anyone! Hee-hee-heeee! Eee-hee-hee-hee-hee-heeee! I caper madly!

Refuse to choke down the raw sewage of lesser game products! Avoid being judged and mocked by future generations! Buy Your Whispering Homunculus today!

*I also rubbed my bum on every copy of Kobold Quarterly #21 before it was shipped.

You know, I was on the fence about buying this, but now.. wow. I must have the book from the best roles-playing game designer!

“I caper madly!” This wondrous insanity is why I love the Homunculus.

By the way, I just posted a review on the Paizo website. I gave it five stars, but it deserves more.

P.S. I have the .pdf version of KQ 21, so I’m safe from your little bum prank. :)

Paizo sells 1st edition books? I thought it was all about 3e and whateva.

Bob, Paizo sells 1e books, 3e books, 4e books, AGE books, and even GURPS books. Their store is amazing.

I’ve been thinking about those blank pages. You know, the ones that make perfect sense in a hardcopy publication, but which look out of place in a .pdf document.

For “Your Whispering Homunculus volume II”, how about using them to publish some of the production sketches from the artist who does the cover art? I would expect it to have only a minor effect on the cost of the artwork, since the artist has to go through these steps anyhow. Then the pages aren’t blank, the artist is happy, and the .pdf version doesn’t look odd.

That is an awesome idea, Charles! *makes a note of it for future products that flow this way*
