That's what I used to think, but the other poster is correct. Gygax credited Three Hearts and Three Lions with inspiring the alignment system, and it seems likely it inspired Moorcock as well, as it used the whole conflict between law and chaos years before the first Elric story. Of course, for all I know, Three Hearts and Three Lions could've been heavily influenced by something else.

Well, AD&D has intelligent magic swords with ego scores that can override the will of their masters. That at least seems like it's inspired by Stormbringer, especially as Gygax lists the first couple of Elric stories in the "inspirational reading" section at the back of the 1e DMG.

Gygax claims that the Tolkien stuff was mostly fan service--that he gave things a veneer of Tolkien-ism so that people could relate to them more readily--but I frankly don't buy it. I mean, maybe for some of it, but I think the influence was greater that Gygax admitted.

"Replays" in the West tend to have the serial numbers filed off and tend to get sold as ordinary novels. Failing that, some people turn their campaigns into webcomics (like Yet Another Fantasy Gamer Comic), though few are any good.

no way to tell really, without having read any of them, so I can try to estimate on how entertaining, and therefore marketable, they would be to a western audience.

I can then try to estimate if it's viable by comparing estimated sale basically educated guesses, since it's never been done before against cost, with the two main factor being translation expenses and rights of which translation probably would be the big one, since they are more wordy per page, compared to the equivalent amount of pages in a manga.

interesting doesn't necessary mean entertaining. Just take story-time thread here in /tg, it's only a small part that's entertaining enough to get screencapped or archived.

With that said, there's probably at least one, that would be just as entertaining.
How ever, a possible plan, made on the spot, might be to get the rights to the Red Dragon replay and abuse the fuck out of the fact that it's people in the anime industry that's playing, to market it.

depending off course on the right holders estimate the value of the names attached set up against the fact that it's niche

The same stuff I said about Quick Start in the first thread kind of applies to Red Dragon - it'd be a niche product, but if you focus on digital distribution and short print runs to interested game shops/manga-oriented bookstores, you could probably make a profit out of it. The largest cost would be securing the rights and translation, then production costs would be relatively low.

>> No.25782842

>>25782575
I figured, I'm just saying that I believe that marketing something as replays of Japanese people playing tabletop rpg alone, might not be enough of a unique selling point, to risk the rights and translation expenses.
Unless the translator are willing to receive a percentage earning based on sale.

I'm more willing to take the risk with Red Dragon or a replay that's comfirmed to be entertaining. The Eberron one, and the shadow run one that's posted in here aren't guaranteed to be good, they might just be the only one posted, due to the quality of the artwork alone.

If it's your average player, that might be too niche. Red Dragon is the one with all the light novels writers and the guy behind Madoka though, right? You could capitalize on that more easily than "here's a random Japanese storytime that we translated." Targeted ads emphasizing the creators (if someone likes F/SN on Facebook they see an ad hyping up that guy's involvement, same for Madoka and Durarara), show off the art, so on and so forth. See about giving the first chapter/night out for free as a sample, then charge for the rest once they're hooked because my black heart only loves profit.

>Red Dragon is the one with all the light novels writers and the guy behind Madoka though, right?

yup, that's why I'm specifically mentioning that one and talking about using the names attached to market it.

Rights will be more expensive, but might still be low enough due to the whole niche thing.

Could then be used as a gateway product for future replay publishing.
