Have you considered paying less for RPGs? Say, 4 or 5 dollars an hour instead of 8? I really want the RPGs to thrive, and cutting them out completely certainly isn't going to boost sales of them...
LAST word on the 'hows&whys' behind the decision.
First, even though the trooper pack says $8/hr, it's been $10/hr for a number of years.
Second, I personally have said all I really want to as far as what was considered, the reasoning why etc.
While my goal was to give the community a heads up instead of surprise everyone, for me to get into more details would put the entire post, and this entire thread, in the wrong light. While I can't and won't say "Don't try emailing Mongoose with your thoughts" I would hope that everyone would just take me at my word what could have been done, was done.
Remember, I was one of our top members of the MI with Traveller being my #1 game since it came out in Aug '08, I started the MGT-AIDS yahoogroup in Sept '08 (still active) so the loss of RPGs hurts me big time... and now I'm back over to minis.
