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.

1997.10.23 Ken "Whit" Whitman Had His Date(s) in Court Before!

1997.10.23 Ken "Whit" Whitman Had His Date(s) in Court Before!
After a few years of tracking down info on Ken "Whit" Whitman, we thought we've gotten quite a lot of info, but every once in a while something new comes to light.

Astute readers may have noticed that over the weekend we updated the Pseudonyms page because we found out about another one of Kenny's failed businesses: Game Corps. Now we don't have the whole backstory here, but a source said this was essentially an attempt to farm out GMs to companies needing someone to run games at cons. Hopefully we'll get some 411 on this, but for now it is just a rumor.

What isn't a rumor are a couple of Wisconsin court cases where it appears that Ken "Whit" Whitman failed to pay unemployment taxes for employees (Case 2003TW059885 and Case 1997TW042071). There is a 3rd case evidently stemming from Kenny not paying a rather large printing bill (Case 2002CV000672). Now $31,049.37 sounds like chump change compared to the hundreds of thousands spread across 6 Kickstarter campaigns and an untold amount of book, resin, and KenzerCo product sales (all off-book, mind you....so the "official" count is $159,385). I'm sure Omaha Printing Company doesn't feel $31,049.37 is "chump change".....

Special Note: The following images are composite images (screenshots) that have had the Court Record portion removed for brevity. Use the links above to read those details.
