Another publishing fool and his nest egg story?
If he lost all at sea, wouldn't he have a claim on the shipper? Is that pending? Does kickstarter have any refund policy or is it just caveat emptor; I got my slice of your hopes and dreams site. Beg some more, I guess. Or change the store name and sell the same thing.
Is it a scam? Check the record on when the last boat was actually lost at sea. Seems like every time a mere fishing boat off Korea goes down we hear on nightly news. If there was a shipping line loss...was it a single container that went overboard? I don't believe the tale.
I admire people who use global trade to make a ten grand small con with details like Brexit and Chinese cartels controlling global trade; cool memes when the Drowned ones and Cthulhu get included. Maybe the big guys sunk the boat cause his work was so revolutionary.
Anything not online after today is just relics of the past. What I want to know is when a dungeon randomizer will be sold on Steam or roll20 will add one to the services. Never?
