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.

2016.05.16 Updating the Pseudonyms Page
Today one of our team noticed a small inconsistency that needed to be checked out. We've already listed Ken "Whit" Whitman's earliest "companies" as "Whit Publications, Inc." now we know that Ken "Whit" Whitman likes to make up companies and unfortunately the online searchable records don't go back that far, but we suspect that "Whit Publications, Inc." is another false front, just like D20 Entertainment LLC.
The tip of was a brief mention of the Mutazoids game, which actually has a Wikipedia page. The page lists Mutazoids as being produced by "Whit Productions, Inc." While that could be a typo, it is difficult to think that the cover of the game is a typo as well.
according to RPG.net
Definitely not a typo.....especially when you see one of the old Mutazoids ads. This ad, interestingly enough, came a page before a review for the game in White Wolf #20.
We just don't see Ken "Whit" Whitman actually incorporating one company in 1989 and then another just a couple years later, at least based on his current "company" of D20 Entertainment LLC.
Adding "Inc." or "LLC" doesn't legitimize your business....unless you actually incorporate. It actually is illegal to represent yourself using these terms if you haven't actually incorporated! Of course we should give Ken "Whit" Whitman the benefit of the doubt that he did incorporate....twice, but as of today we don't have any proof of this.
We've updated the Pseudonyms page appropriately to add in this new entry.
