A Brief Introduction to this Page's Purpose

Not Another Dime! is dedicated to documenting the assorted, and sometimes wild, details of Mr. Ken Whitman's business dealings within the Role Playing Game (RPG) industry. This place is NOT intended to be a medium of discussion about Mr. Whitman, pro or con, but instead be a "jumping off" point to enable the reader to make their own informed decision about Mr. Whitman's history and business character.

Whenever possible, links to the original source material will be provided, but in many cases that information may have been deleted or secured behind restricted-access (like a private Facebook page) accounts.

Anything posted here is the opinion of the retrospective author and any content shown is to be considered "fair use" and posted for educational purposes only.

Note to authors: Please begin each post with the original date of the event being documented in the format of YYYY.MM.DD (i.e. If the event being recorded happened on March 15th, 2015 and today's date was August 8th, 2018 the beginning of the post's title would be 2015.03.15 and not 2018.08.08) so readers can use the Chronology page to find specific information. Please use appropriate tags when possible for the same reason.

Note to contributors: If you have some valid data to send, screenshots, links to other Ken Whitman stories, etc., please feel free to send a gmail to notanotherdimeblog. We'll look into it and post if appropriate.

2018.06.14 Admin Note

2018.06.14 Admin Note
Just a quick Admin note: We had an inquiry as to why out last post's title was dated 2013.11.20. Since we here at Not Another Dime (for Ken Whitman) are trying to document as much of Ken "Whit" Whitman's "activity" as possible, some of our posts cover events that are in the past. Blogger already shows the date of the post and by default the entries on the Chronology page are in post order, newest to oldest. By starting of the title of each entry with the date of the event we're writing about, the Chronology page becomes much more useful because you can sort by Post Title.

Some of this information was at the top of each page header, but it clearly needed to be explained better. We also realized three posts were not dated/named properly, so now we can fix those issues.

2013.11.20 Ken "Whit" Whitman Files for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

2013.11.20 Ken "Whit" Whitman Files for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
We've already shown, thanks to somebody else's work over at Tenkar's Tavern, that d20 Entertainment isn't/wasn't a legal entity during the time-frame of the numerous Kickstarter campaigns. We mention this because one of our readers started poking around the various submitted forms for Ken "Whit" Whitman's Civil Suit. One of the forms is Ken "Whit" Whitman's November 20, 2013 Chapter 7 Bankruptcy filing.

We are not going to provide a direct link to this filing because a) it is easy enough to locate through one of our earlier posts regarding the civil suit, and b) Ken "Whit" Whitman isn't alone on that filing, he's essentially the +1 to his ex-wife's filing. A cursory glance quickly shows that she's the only one making any real (reported) money and....well......she was married to Ken "Whit" Whitman, hasn't she suffered enough? Ok, that is a joke in bad taste, but seriously...it's Kenny we're after, not his family.

It is rather interesting to note that this filing comes only eighteen (18!) days before the beginning of the funding for Knights of the Dinner Table: Live Action Series (KoDT:LAS). The planning for this Kickstarter goes back at least until May 2013, so at least on the surface it appears that the timing of this Chapter 7 filing is deliberate. The timing is such that during Ken "Whit" Whitman's initial funding period the Trustee in his Chapter 7 filing will have the creditor meeting (between December 11th and December 30th) and his debts would most likely have been wiped clean sometime between March and April 2014.

When you realize that Ken "Whit" Whitman had his slate wiped clean before getting at least $170k*, it really makes you wonder where all that money went. It doesn't appear to have gone towards fulfillment, well at least any significant portion anyway.

This news of the Chapter 7 filing is also significant because it has been alleged (and forwarded by several readers) that one of Ken "Whit" Whitman's many fallacies is that he can just file Chapter 7 bankruptcy again. The thing is this was his personal filing in 2013 and since d20 Entertainment isn't a legal entity all this....stuff we report about here on NAD....is all on him as an individual and he cannot file Chapter 7 again until at least the end of 2020. It actually makes us wonder if d20 Entertainment wasn't actually filed as a business entity to insulate Ken "Whit" Whitman's incoming funds from his bankruptcy.


*The amount that Ken "Whit" Whitman has taken the public for is unknown as he did a lot of activity off the books:

$ 159,385.00   Kickstarters (90% of $177,095.00)
$ ???????.00   KoDT 20 Years of Covers Books (softcover, hardcover, leatherbound)
$ ???????.00   Traveller Resin Ships
$ ???????.00   HackMaster PDFs
$ ???????.00   HackMaster Hardcover Books
$ ???????.00   Pimping Jolly Blackburn out (drawings, paintings, running games, convention appearances)
$ ???????.00   Selling "Premiere" Seating at Showings and After-Party Invites

2018.05.01 Ken "Whit" Whitman Keeps it up Over at Tenkar's Tavern

2018.05.01 Ken "Whit" Whitman Keeps it up Over at Tenkar's Tavern
The last 24 hours has been a bit busy, relatively speaking, for Ken "Whit" Whitman over at Tenkar's Tavern. We actually received a comment from the man himself as well. We posted it for about 2' so we could copy and paste the text for our records.

For a while we did allow Kenny's comments, but when we realized he was trying to use Not Another Dime (For Ken Whitman) as an additional forum to harass his Kickstarter Backers, we put the stop to that. We allowed at least one more comment that was directed at us, but we decided that wasn't doing anyone any favors either.

Last night's comment was directed solely at us and basically consisted of an attempt to disparage NAD and it's mission.

Listen Kenny, and yes.....this is actually directed to you. We don't really care how many people look at our posts and that you are directing traffic to Tenkar's Tavern. We don't profit one cent from this blog and maintaining it takes us away from the lives we'd rather be living. There are no ads and the way this blog is setup we couldn't get an accurate account of page views even if we wanted to. We have but one purpose, which is to document your shit online so people can educate themselves appropriately.

For new readers of NAD: We originally tried to be as neutral as possible, but that gets harder and harder as time marches on. When we post an opinion we try to explain that it is an opinion and we frequently remind our readers that while we post the truth and post document links whenever possible, a lot of links go dead and to please assume anything that cannot be read firsthand by you is fake/false information. We do try to get confirmations from 3rd parties, but please...don't trust us.....make up your own mind. NAD exists to help you do that to the best of our ability.

Now, back to the task at hand, which is documenting Ken "Whit" Whitman's recent Tenkar's Tavern comments:

2018.05.01 Ken "Whit" Whitman Keeps it up Over at Tenkar's Tavern
"Still no one gives a shit that the $250k deal in GA was a mistake and not on my end?

No one takes time to post my reply to the law suit in NY? 

Seems it's only fun to report the bad and made up stories, but when the the truth comes up you don't like, you just skim on past it.

Me: I'm gonna be in walking dead
You: you're a lier
Me: see I was
You: daaaaa

You: Ken stold 250k In movie shit
Me: nope
You: fuck you ya crook
Me: she found them
You: daaaaa

You: here's civil papers on kemin NY but a guy disbarred in the state of MA for being unethical
Me: really this guy's an idiot
You: you're in trouble, we got you now
Me: this guy's an idiot 
You: daaaaa"


2018.05.01 Ken "Whit" Whitman Keeps it up Over at Tenkar's Tavern
"First question: there never was a charge for theft of property because I have back the disk. She thought about suing me in civil court and then decided against it when she found the files. So nothing to show you.

Second Question: it's all electronic, you can see them they are public files. Idiot never put them up like he did his own papers because he knows he's gonna get his case dropped and wants to play it off.

Third question: I mean the statment. Kinda had to get shit done when 32 assholes, 2 idiots, and 200 misguided and lied too people think your the devil and break every law on the book to lible you. "

Quick rhetorical question...how many of us are assholes, and which us us (if any) are the idiots?

For the record, we've looked at the documentation that Ken "Whit" Whitman has referred to as "No one takes time to post my reply to the law suit in NY? " last night and "Yes Amazing how no one posted anything about it." the day before when answering the made up question of "Has Ken answered the NYC Lawsuit?" Asking the State Supreme Court for "Judicial Intervention" and asking for the suit to be dismissed for improper venue really isn't an answer, not at least to anyone here at NAD.

We don't have a lawyer on staff, but common sense seems to dictate that if someone is trying to argue that they aren't covered by a particular jurisdiction then maybe, just maybe, they shouldn't cite as reference the very agreement that establishes they agreed to abide by that very jurisdiction "You agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to these terms, or your use or non­-use of the Services, shall be filed only in the state or federal courts located in New York County in the State of New York and you hereby consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of litigating any such action. "

Our readers can find that information on this page if you wish to follow along.

2018.04.30 Ken "Whit" Whitman Speak Up Over at Tenkar's Tavern

2018.04.30 Ken "Whit" Whitman Speak Up Over at Tenkar's Tavern
We decided a while ago that we wouldn't let Ken "Whit" Whitman attack people using Not Another Dime (For Ken Whitman) as the forum.

At the same time, however, we do try to keep everyone informed when Kenny pops up, which he has chosen to do over at Tenkar's Tavern. We thought he was taking a break from social media/ being online, but after re-reading his original post that was just from Facebook.

"Jesus H Christ... Do you guys just speculate and make stories up for no good reason?

Ken "Whit" Whitman Pops up at the Tavern
1. Marcus sold me the store for $320 a week for three years.
2. I have not been able to make a payment since January, and defaulted on the loan.
3. Marcus had me stay on until he found a new buyer.
4. A few weeks ago, Jim wanted to be bought out from Marcus (he was Marcus minority shareholder, he got a percentage when sold Little Monsters Comics, LLC to Marcus), so Marcus paid him money and gave the old store back to Jim.
5. Jim found a buyer. yesterday was my last day as manager as I was training everyone with the new management.

TA DA!

Q. Did Ken own the store. 
A. Yes till I defaulted on the contract.

Q. Does Ken have anything to do with Little Monsters Ent?
A. No.

Q. Is Ken still working on Kickstarters?
A. Yes

Q. Is Ken going back to GA?
A. None of your damn business.

Q. Has Ken answered the NYC Lawsuit?
A. Yes Amazing how no one posted anything about it.

Q. Why did you shut down your facebook?
A. So I can move around the country, make money and finish my kickstarters without Harassment!

Q. What about the $250k in GA?
A. The woman drop charges when she figured out the files were on the disk, but she was using a PC & not a Mac and could not see them. Look using a Mac and TA DA! Why was that never posted?

Q. Do you ever get tire of people making stories up about you and then trying to convince others they are true.
A. There is no such thing as bad publicity.

Q. What do you think about the disbarred Attorney that keeps filing suits against you.
A. I think its a shame that he wasted $250k+ on a law degree, and then disbarred for being an aggressive bully asshole.

Take care you speculating libel bastards."

1st off, "Why was 'that' (emphasis ours)never posted?"....probably because we didn't have the information. You want us to update the appropriate posts Kenny....then have THEM get in touch. Until then, this is just more deflection and/or spin.

2nd, this is the closest thing to a non-update...update on your Kickstarters since (we have to go look & verify) SEPTEMBER 11, 2016!!! If you expect anyone to even believe that you are working on anything, a couple of odd mentions after-the-fact by Marcus King isn't going to cut it. You've gone dark for at least the last 18 months and you weren't exactly increasing your (Kickstarter) supporters confidence in you any before that date.

The fact is Ken "Whit" Whitman has had supporter's money for a collective 7,628 days (the sum of all Kickstarters funding date until today) and hasn't updated these same people a combined total of 3,815 days. This is over 10 years of silence and almost 20 years of having the money.....and let's not forget all the money made off-book that even he probably can't tabulate. All the resin, the KoDt: 20 Years of Covers, and general KenzerCo product/services (we've been told Kenny sold at least one Jolly Blackburn appearance at a con with no provisions for expenses).

At least we can try to celebrate that Ken "Whit" Whitman may finally understand the meaning of the word "libel". Too bad that Erik Tenkar's original post doesn't meet the threshold of libel, clearly being protected 1st Amendment opinions that likely do not meet the injury requirements for Kenny. Obviously his understanding is a work in progress........

2018.04.24 Whit gets a kiss goodbye as he Slips and Slides his night away.
We've received a couple of "tips" that Ken "Whit" Whitman sold Little Monsters Games & Comics to his "girlfriend" Jess Hunter. We don't know about that so much, but the relationship between the two seems a little lot more than professional.

Last week Ken "Whit" Whitman and Jess Hunter did a early morning "show" that ended around 2:30 AM. If you really want to watch the 75' show, by all means....knock yourself out.

We watched it for you, and our opinion is that Ken "Whit" Whitman doesn't act like someone who just sold his store to someone else. He's firmly large & in charge for this "show" and every thing is "his" throughout. The banter between the two is way more than just informal. Here is an excerpt from -7:24 mark (the video counts down the time left):

Little Monsters Entertainment, LLC Owner Jess Hunter
"The evil that Ken Whitman does."






Ken "Whit" Whitman
"That’s right, everyone’s sticking around to see about this wonderful kiss we have at the end that you owe me, my goodbye kiss."





Little Monsters Entertainment, LLC Owner Jess Hunter
"I see the anticipation in your eyes."






Ken "Whit" Whitman

"(sings) ANTICIPATION"





Little Monsters Entertainment, LLC Owner Jess Hunter
"It’s like you never been kissed before"





Ken "Whit" Whitman
"I don’t know, I’ve never been kissed, especially by someone half my age. Half my age, it’s gonna be kinda gross, like kissing a daughter…"



Little Monsters Entertainment, LLC Owner Jess Hunter
"Don’t, don’t, don’t put me and daughter in the same category."






Ken "Whit" Whitman
"OK, I’ll just put you as sexy beeotch (bitch) category."





Of course at the end of the "show" they kiss a couple of times on camera:
Ken "Whit" Whitman's Kiss(es)

We'll see how long this lasts....



2018.05.01 Update:
Yep, the video has been made private....go figure.
