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.

2014.08.25 Ken Whitman Already Planning his Next KoDT Kickstarter Scam

2014.08.25 Ken Whitman Already Planning his Next KoDT Kickstarter Scam
I found an interesting article that I hadn't seen before, an article on the Rolling for Initiative weekly column by "Scott Thorne, PhD, owner of Castle Perilous Games & Books in Carbondale, Illinois and instructor in marketing at Southeast Missouri State University".

The author contributed at least $200 towards the KoDT:LAS to get the "Retail Package" and was invited to be a vendor at the "d20 Expo" as well as be an extra in the film (because nobody bought the $750 level to be an extra).

The column/report is a good one you can find here, but I found one of the closing paragraphs particularly telling:
"According to Whitman, expect to see the series released by December of this year, with another Kickstarter campaign launched next year to fund the second three episode arc, scheduled to shoot in summer 2015."

Obviously we don't have the episodes yet, almost 9 months after that December wishful-thinking release date, but to me the bigger bit is that in August of last year, Ken Whitman was already planning another KoDT Kickstarter. At this point he'd already been lying about the KoDT 20 Years of Covers book for months!
