I just sent the following email to LPJ.
I am sending you this to let you know at this time: [June 30th] 10:47pm CDT, I have removed all NeoExodus products from RPGNow. They still show on their search engine, but they are no longer available and should be cleared out on their next refresh in the next hour or so - which is out of my control.
I believe I have removed all the links and reference from FOE's website.
Well I'm off!
It was a rather emotional message for me to send as it marks the end of a long and quite prosperous relation. It tried to keep it short. It was the setting that I really helped grow into a coherent whole and a lot of myself is it.
I wish my friend the best and know we'll get around a White Russian again at a con in the future. Though emotional for the time invested, I see the future as bright and open for FOE. The partnership and experience gained with LPJ is invaluable to me and something I will cherish.
But like leaving high school, I will now fly under my own wings. The Tyrants of Saggakar line is really exploding (eclipsing all my other products in both numbers of sales and dollars). So I know there is a market for it I just have to keep pushing myself to make better and better products every day.
So it is an emotional day, but one I know will lead to bigger and better things for all involved.
Sad? Yes. Happy? Yes.
See you at the gaming table my friend, let's give our players so many options they wonder what to buy next!
