The legal status of the game is that Scott Lynch passed his copyrights to Jayson Stevens and Orion Ussner Kidder (me) as of two years ago. The first two editions of DNW, 1.0 and 1.1, should be considered abandonware. You may share them freely. That is our official stance. If you ordered copies of DNW or any other Cryptosnark books and never received them, we can try to arrange uploads of the files, though we can't guarantee that we have them all between us.
The real news, though, is that DNW has transformed into The Phoenix Project RPG, whom you can email at <phoenixprojectrpg@...

>. Phoenix is an expansion pack for d20 Modern, instead of the standalone game that was DNW. A second edition of DNW is planned for "sometime in the future," but for now, Phoenix is what's on offer. Come join us!
