View Full Version : WotC descision to discontinue Birthright

Does anyone know the details as to why WotC dropped the BR line of products? I'm assuming it was low profitability...

They didn't do their job well. Birthright was crowned RPG of the year the year it first started, but TSR did a very crappy job at marketting the setting, and it only started getting a real audience as they discontinued it. Call that business idiocy or anything you want, but that's the truth.

I live in Barcelona and Birthright was never published in Spain, and even finding the English manuals was difficult. Now I've gathered some and I'm DMing the first PBeM set in Birthright in Catalan (one of the languages of Spain). But trying to get all the stuff TSR published is pretty hard.

Have you tried any online sellers?

Well, in fact I've done that, but the shippings are usually very expensive... And trying to gather the 3rd edition Core Books have nearly killed my pockets!

Move to the states :)

Hey arjan maybe you could add a section for a "Trader's Guild" and allow the marketting and dispursement of resources between players through threads on the webpage.

the number to the right is the maximum available source level left in the province. The table for source potential is on page 81. If you don't have the book the source potential iss as follows:

Plains, Hills, Tundra, March, Moor 5
Forest, Mountain, River, Coast 7
Swamp, Rain Forest 8
High Mountains, Ancient Forest 9

Start with the maximum potential and subtract the province level from it. i.e. Maesford, Alamie is plains max potential of 5. The province level is 3... therefore the maximum source potential is 2.
