Foragers Guild RPG Reaches Bestseller Status

That these games do so well just on word of mouth continues to humble and amaze me. Thank you. There was no advertising. No one ran a press release because it’s not a Kickstarter. There aren’t any reviews yet. The game still sold enough to earn a medallion, and less than 9% of all titles on DriveThruRPG ever do that. Therefore I am grateful, appreciative, and do not take this for granted.
