As many RPG fans may be aware, the d20 System Trademark License is being cancelled. As a result, publishers of products published under that license (which permitted Open Game License products to have the d20 trademark on them) will not be able to sell those products after the end of this year. Retailers and wholesalers can still sell inventory they have already purchased.

We still have a number of d20 products in our warehouse, and we'd rather see them in the hands of gamers instead of the recycling center. In order to give all of our wholesaler and retailer customers equal opportunity, we have decided to lower the MSRPs for all of our remaining printed d20 products. This way, everyone can stock these titles while they last and pass along the savings to their customers. To keep things simple, the new MSRPs are either $2, $5 or $10. This means a price reduction of 54% to 85%, depending on the title.

Following is a list of the affected titles and their new prices:

The new MSRPs are effective immediately, and are good while supplies last (first come, first served; some titles have very limited quantities) or until Dec. 31st, 2008.

Some of these titles are in very short supply -- in particular, I expect AG3213, AG3214, AG3220 and AG3226 to be gone in short order. Even though we are low on these titles, I figured it was easiest to just include them in the sale anyway.

By way of update, these titles are now gone from our warehouse:

AG3213 1-58978-014-0 Seven Cities $10.00
AG3214 1-58978-021-3 Occult Lore $10.00
AG3226 1-58978-044-2 Love & War $10.00

Copies still may be available, and may even be at sale pricing, through other outlets (including Warehouse 23).

Since we are offering our usual trade discounts based on the new pricing (in other words, a distributor buys at a discount off the new low MSRP), it should be possible for distributors and local game stores to pass through these savings to their shoppers. However, it's perfectly understandable that they may not want to pick up d20 titles at all these days, regardless of price. Happily, there are several online options that are currently offering these titles at the new and lower prices -- besides Warehouse 23, you can also find them at Paizo.com and Amazon.com.

If your local store is interested in stocking the d20 clearance titles and is unable to obtain them through their preferred distributor, they can contact me (john@atlas-games.com) to see if we can set up alternate arrangements.
