Why 2 fora?

<r>Why are there 2 fora for Wilderlands discussion? Wouldn't it make more sense to concentrate discussion on the Wilderlands on one forum? <br/> <br/> Moreover, I don't really understand which discussions are supposed to go into which forum. The division doesn't make too much sense to me. It seems t...

Any word on what the "additions" will be?

If there will be additional content, I'm interested.

The claim that offering pdfs of core rulebooks is damaging for a RPG company's profits seems falsified by the fact that almost every RPG company (including smaller ones) does this.
