    Getting 50% of the sale price would be a pretty big percentage and for me, unheard of. The non-WoTC products might be higher but I'd be surprised if it was 15-20%.

    DMsGuild for original content is fifty percent. Pure conversion work is often much less, though sometimes it is as high as twentyfive.

    I was mostly speaking purely as a on the FG store. I am not familiar with the DMsguild (only allows 5e content) but I have looked at Drivethrurpg.com. I would think Frog Gods would probably sell it through the store in FG and not Drivethru but no clue. I know they wouldn't go through Dmsguild because far as I know you do that you no longer "own" the content.

    So far the only 3 places that FG content can be sold is the store here, Steam (and I think some IP owners are getting Steam codes to sell now), and DMSGuild. RA does not meet the requirments for DMsguild and I doubt that any large 3rd party publisher would want to give up their IP. I just finished Tome of Horrors (need to do the screen shots and marketing copy and send on in for review and approval) and that was 342 pages of monsters and was a big effort. RA is 660 pages and has maps (all need LOS and soon lighting), new monsters, traps (all need to be coded), parcels with lots of unique items, each item needs to be created and takes quite a while. I am not even sure how long that would take. In the fits and starts I do their smaller 32 page modules it easily stretchs over a month as I have only so much free time. The 3rd party conversions take longer because using the SRD slows you down.

    I think I am going to just do Mouth of Doom and down until it gets to the tunnel that leads to the main RA complex for personal use for cons.
