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.

2017.04.12 KoDT:LAS Backers Still Popping Up With Un-Filled Rewards

2017.04.12 KoDT:LAS Backers Still Popping Up With Un-Filled Rewards
We're willing to bet that most people's money is on Ken "Whit" Whitman never completing his Kickstarter projects. Regardless of what the man says or how many deadlines get kicked down the road, our money (well, a lot of people's money) is on the Chicago Cubs winning the Superbowl before Ken "Whit" Whitman fulfills his Kickstarter obligations.

Sure, Ken "Whit" Whitman says he'll have the KoDT:LAS project complete by August 2017, but for a project that has been 90% done for what (?) a year or two, there is so much outstanding. Case in point, Ken "Whit" Whitman can't even be bothered to email a subset-list of backers to KenzerCo. From a post from Jolly Blackburn on the KenzerCo forums (emphasis is ours):

"I ran a game in August for six backers (which actually spilled over to two). Ken never provided the backer list so I relied on backers contacting me directly to let me know they'd taken the option. Frustrating thing is people are still poppoing up who apparently gave him money for original art and such

It was a real mess with the way he simply disappeared.

Anyway, I suspected there might be a few stragglers and meant to post an inquiry but got distracted. I knew Kurt was dangling out there. If we can beat the bushes and find any others, I'd be glad to run a session and check that item off the list.

Sorry Ken chose to flame out on a license he took out from us. Why did he have to so completely self destruct on KODTLAS...?

He's blocked me on all fronts so there's no comunication btw. I hear he's claiming an August delivery date but I would bet cash money that's not going to happen. He's simplly going through the motions of STILL working on the project to keep the lawyers off his back."

2017.04.12 1st hand Account of Ken "Whit" Whitman's Lack of Work

We have to assume the email list is somewhere with those softcover KoDT: 20 Years of Covers books.....

2017.04.18 Update:

Even with all of the research and prep-work we've done here at NAD, we still get surprised by the depths that Ken "Whit" Whitman went to in order to fleece KoDT fans. Again, any emphasis is ours.

2017.04.18 Jolly Blackburn Update
"There were actually quite a few more than that. At least 18. Enough that I knew it would take three different sessions, maybe four to cover. (I find Roll20 can only comfortably handle 6 to 7 players at a time and at least 3 being D-Team members....

Ken apparently was selling slots with his website and other spam tsnuami offers. 
He also promised some store appearances (outside KS) I knew nothing about. Think about that - the man actually promised ME to a store in Arizona. With no provisons for travel, lodging or even letting me know. Grrrr...

And don't get me started on the Knights of the Dinner Table guest appearances/cameos. I told him I could handle three - 23 people ended up on the list.

Of course that forced me to really dig deep creatively and the Pwn Brian Express storyline came out of it — but I lost a lot of Sanity points on that one."
