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 creation in the format of YYYY.MM.DD (i.e. 2015.08.08) 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.

2015.11.18 "Limited Edition" Books Spotted in the Wild for Sale
We've covered the KoDT: 20 Years of Covers book before, a couple of times actually. We learned that Ken Whitman isn't actually making the books himself and they only cost $16.92 to produce......but backers could buy this "limited edition" for only $100, but only until February 5th, 2014.
The thing is there are people who have never gotten their hardcover book and nobody has seen the softcover version out in the wild yet.
If you are one of these people, don't fret.......Noble Knight Games has 17 on hand at a "steal" of only $71.96!
I know there are only 17 because the system will tell you if you try to order more than they have....
Now I wouldn't rush to blame Noble Knight Games because they probably didn't know about Ken Whitman. This......this is the reason this blog exists, to help get the word out. I've heard that Noble Knight Games is taking appropriate action with this inventory.......but as of the time of this post the books are still available for purchase.
We are aware that Ken Whitman has also provided Noble Knight Games with some resin ships, but the quantity seems to be small and it is unknown if NKG acquired them from the Kickstarter, d20 Entertainment Store, or other means. If we get some more detailed knowledge about those ships then we could post about them.
