So, here is the proposal:
1. You pay me $100.
2. For six months, I will send you whatever tables I am working on, plus whatever back tables necessary to understand what I'm working on now. This will include the present weather tables, the wilderness damage tables I will be working on, my character sheet table, my maps in Publisher format, and ALL my trade tables. I will send you anything that has been updated every two weeks as I move forward, and you will get access to any new idea or table I start in that time.
I'm quite serious.
The offer is restricted to people whom I can reasonably trust. It also depends on my getting a large enough response, so comment if you'd choke up the cash.
Tell me I'm crazy.
In consideration, I see three principle problems. The first would be that the total collection of all this material represents hundreds of megabytes of information. Using email, this will take a great deal of trouble to send to subscribers. Not in the long run, where what I can create in a two-week period email would probably handle. But the initial dump of information is daunting.
I could use a central server to dump information on, which could then be retrieved; however, any server could then be hacked for the material, and so the need for security creates possibly more problems than it solves.
The second problem would be that I have not taken the time to write down how some of the material is used and applied. The trade system, for instance, requires several files which I know how to use to support the others ... this would have to be described and written about, probably on this blog, so that it could be implemented by subscribers. This is by no means impossible.
Finally, there is the matter of my contractual obligation. How does the subscriber know that I am sending 'everything.' Does 'everything' include material on my computer that is not D&D oriented? Does it include material I would consider resembles the copywritten text of published books, written out for my benefit but not suitable for distribution in exchange for money? This is a problem. I want the subscriber to feel he or she is getting his or her money's worth, but I don't want to feel 'owned' or compelled to break my own personal codes about privacy.
All I can say is that my wish is to send 'everything' that I have personally created that is as original to D&D as I can make it, and to send the material I am producing on a bi-weekly basis. So 'everything' does NOT include material that is not created by me, or material which is not related to Dungeons and Dragons. So the agreement must be one of mutual trust and regard; that the subscriber trusts me to be forthcoming, and that I trust the subscriber to keep the information and not distribute it flagrantly to others. In terms of business, the subscriber's hundred dollars is not a 'payment' but a 'donation,' and my returning material in kind is a 'donation' also.
I've sold many a subscription to magazines that had no more contractual obligations than that. I trust this will satisfy the readership.
