$44.99 for a 220 page rule-book is feeling spend-y on this one. Just in comparison to some other things... Interesting times.

What the press release (and your article) doesn't mention is that the BSG RPG quickstart guide is available for $7 (download) and $10 (hard copy, I believe). It is a 32 page product and includes a unique adventure that won't be featured in the rulebook. While there's been some criticism already of the MWP charging for their quick-start (unlike, say, WW's recent Changeling demo kit), Jamie Chambers (VP at MWP) noted the following: * The basic rules are available for free as the preview of the quick-start rules via DriveThru RPG. Those free rules don't include the ships, adventure and characters. * MWP will be releasing a free web-enhancement upgrade designed to upgrade the adventures and characters from the quick-start to the full rules. To balance, Green Ronin's M&M Beginner's Guide is priced similarly (although is in color). The BSG RPG Quickstart's been available since Friday via DriveThruRPG and RPGnow.
