Beadle & Grimm's

Beadle & Grimm's is a company making additional material for Dungeons & Dragons, under a license from Wizards of the Coast. Their first product caused quite an echo, because of the hefty price tag: $500 for a limited platinum edition box with stuff to play Waterdeep Dragon Heist. I didn't buy one, that was a bit too rich for me. But they had hinted at making boxes with slightly less stuff for a more reasonable price, so I got on the mailing list of their "supreme marketing goblin" and waited.

To my surprise they now announced a silver edition for $175 not for Waterdeep Dragon Heist, but for the upcoming Ghosts of Saltmarsh. I might actually buy this, but first I looked whether the previous adventure wasn't also available in a silver edition. No luck, I just found comments on Facebook that they are only doing one edition at a time. I find that somewhat weird: As they sold all the copies of their Platinum edition of Waterdeep Dragon Heist, there is obviously still unmet demand, especially at a lower price tag. And it should be easy enough to produce a downgraded version without too much work for them. Strange!

Agreed - I made the same search and was surprised by the same revelation. I would probably buy the cheaper one.
So would i. There was no logical reason for me to get the platinum editions at that 500$ US price tag since i'm in Canada AND the exchange rate is totally not in our favor. But a silver edition would have been nice! Instead, i bought the regular one.

I might try to get a Silver edition Saltmarsh!

Thanks for the head's up!
