    Official Birthright download links no longer work

    It appears that WotC has changed their website and the directory http://www.wizards.com/dnd/files/ no longer exists. Consequently, all the Birthright-related pdfs (cf. http://www.birthright.net/brwiki/ind...WotC_Downloads) they had there are no longer accessible. We can but speculate why.

    ps. The map of Müden does still work though

    When it redirects, it says that it is not yet "live", maybe they're doing some updating.

    http://www.wizards.com/dnd/files/Muden.pdf was the only pdf link that seems to work. Strange

    Well, the link to the WotC page still works, but I concur that none of the other links (except for the Müden map) are working.

    I hope they are releasing more old stuff for free. I certainly wouldn't like to see Birthright revived under 4th edition rules.

    My guess is that Wizards of the Coast plans to sell digital products of D&D or make them available, including those of old versions, and perhaps it intends to sell the PDFs that were once free. While I would certainly like to be able to purchase digital versions of Birthright products, I think that those products that were available for free should not be charged

    For what it's worth, digital copies of darn near everything ever produced by TSR and WOTC are available on the net.

    Given that most pdf's a dirt cheap, I'd be happy to see them sold, those who wanted to save a few bucks could find the free versions, the rest would however gain the ability to access the old stuff easily - we should be able to put a link on the site to wherever they were sold I'd hope.
