RE: [pcgen] [CMP] Rough pricing ideas
- Okay, lots o questions here... All the data sets we release, since we
have license rights from WotC _will_ have as much information as we can
pack into PCGen/e-Tools formats. The amounts decided were based on 2
things, amount of info we could cram in (work entailed) and the book
street price. It may seem a bit odd to calculate with the book street
price, but it was a good guideline in general.
New books I covered in a previous reply.
Pre-ordering bundles by quarter/bi-annually/yearly? Hrmm... we'll have
to think about that one, off the cuff I don't think that would happen,
but we can look into it, we have to get things rolling first! :)

3.0 and one for 3.5 brcause not everyone is going to upgrade to 3.5.
Also CMP should have the full datasets for 3.5 for sale.
