Pathfinder: Book of Beasts Sales Numbers

A number of companies post their sales numbers online. We thought it would be fun to post some of our numbers as well. These are for the Book of Beasts: Monsters of the River Nations since it was 6 months ago (almost to the day) since its release. A bit of context, Distribution numbers lag behind PDF sales since its the funds that flow from the game store to the distributor to the consolidator to me. As a result it takes a bit of time before see the profits of the book.

Without any further ado, sales numbers for the first Book of Beasts:

Aug 2010
Print Distribution Sales: 0
PDF DriveThruRPG/RPGNow: 23
PDF Paizo: 35

Sept 2010
Print Distribution Sales: 14

PDF DriveThruRPG/RPGNow: 3
PDF Paizo: 8

Print Distribution Sales: 243
PDF DriveThruRPG/RPGNow: 52
PDF Paizo: 77

As you can see, print is a major component to our sales. And while the PDF market is growing, it is not ready to supplant print just yet. With Print outselling PDF by roughly 2:1, we’ll be looking to do more with print as we grow.

We hope you enjoyed this look behind the curtain.
