1000 Adventures on Your Mobile Device
In honor of our 1000th Pledge, we turn the WABAC Machine to 2001. Apple is introducing the iPod. Apple's slogan is "1000 Songs in Your Pocket". The iPod enables songs to be purchased individually - not just in albums. Technology decouples the vinyl manufacturing and distribution requirements - putting fewer people between music makers and music lovers. Users can create their own customized digital "albums" and playlists. Oh, and you can put all your songs in your pocket and take them anywhere. And, you can find the song you want quickly and simply. Revolutionary!
Some argue the iPod will kill the music industry. Fast forward to 2014, the same argument is being made about digital book publishing. Adventures no longer need to be 32, 64 or 96 pages exactly. A new bestiary doesn't need to have 250 new monsters - most of which are filler. Unbounded by the traditional constraints of paper publishing, rules and adventures can be published in any size or shape - perfectly tailored to fit your needs. Oh, and you can put them all in your pocket and take them anywhere. And, you can find the information you want quickly and simply.
We don't promise Morningstar will be the next iPod - but we do promise to push the boundaries of what technology can do for our hobby.
Invest in the future and fund the Morningstar Kickstarter. And, for the 1000 backers who already have - thank you!
