I goofed up my spreadsheet a little last quarter, it looks like, so the overall lifetime tallies were a bit off. Here’s the corrections:

Title Correct Incorrect Adjustment
Penny 919 908 11
Diaspora 479 422 57
DLYM 1353 1353 0
DRYH 3519 3557 -38
DFRPG:OW 8006 7995 11
DFRPG:YS 9241 9232 9
Wizard Dice 1279 1278 1
HBR 406 407 -1
SOTC 6278 6277 1
SOTS 671 694 -23
S7S 1524 1542 -18

Working on tallying up this quarter’s stuff now.

Different format this time, because I wanted to use a spreadsheet.

The high level “gut” view: sales were down (as expected) in the fourth quarter of last year, but not horridly so. In terms of sales volume, for example, Q4’s DFRPG sales were only a few hundred less than Q3’s for each title. That’s a palpable drop, sure, but not a “it’s drying up!” On top of that, we got a nice boost out of launching & selling our limited edition “Wizard” Fudge Dice, clearing over half of the units we produced in just a couple months through direct and distribution channels.

The quarter’s numbers from Q3 can be found on my previous post. While the percentage drop on the smaller volume titles was more brutal, comparatively speaking, the overall robustness of the DFRPG and the addition of the dice did nicely by us.

Here’s the high level sum-up. Lifetime sales-wise everything is looking pretty rosy. I’m particularly happy to see that Your Story is within striking distance of 10k copies sold (as always our lifetime totals reflect digital and print combined, but counting Print+PDF bundle sales as only a single sale, not one of each), and Our World falling just short of 8k. That’s a nice footprint for us and gives us a good shot at selling a few thousand copies of our in-development Paranet book, I think.
