has, his Threat Rating rises by 1. This is the rough equivalent of
a gain of 1 character level. For example, a 1st level character with
32 uncompensated EPs worth of powers has a TR of 5, not 1. If
your players have roughly 50 uncompensated EPs worth of stuff
apiece, they're actually going to fight/operate like 7th level
characters. Just plan your threats accordingly and everything will
work out a-ok.

Aw, that's good, that's good... hopefully it'll get better. *The Book
of Distinctions and Drawbacks* is in the mid-40s on the all-time,
all-category list, and DNW hasn't yet sold... let me think... 1/40th
as many copies.
There are more products on RPGnow these days than there
were even in February, and new products get just a bit less
exposure on the front page as a result. However, once a product
climbs into the top 15 or so on one of the hot seller charts, it
tends to stay there a while thanks to self-reinforcing exposure
feedback. I've been studying my RPGnow sales rather intensely,
hoping to arrive at some universal rules of thumb. While DNW
didn't start as strongly as the BODD, it's picking up a bit of speed
as the days go by. On Monday, I'm going to announce the 'zine, a
preview PDF, and a contest (!). Hopefully that'll lend some zing to
