Jim Crocker of Modern Myths, Inc. in Northampton, Massachusetts writes in to question Monte Cook Games sincerity of promising to give "retailers a bit more love and support" (see "Monte Cook Games Hires Sean K. Reynolds").

From Monte Cook Games' announcement:

"We're also pretty stoked at the chance to give our retailers a bit more love and support, too."

Does this mean an end to the previously announced new practice of providing distribution with inferior versions of Kickstarted RPGs? (Monte Cook Games frames it as "bonus content" for Kickstarter participants, but that's a distinction without a difference: copies in the channel are lacking the same contents as Kickstarted copies, right?)

I'd love to be able to tell customers that we're bringing MCG back onto the store, and it'd be a great way for Sean to make very favorable first impression.
