The link works. It's a filter for printed products by WotC. At the top of the page is the section of hottest titles, then newest (look here), then the list of everything. The first four newest titles are from this week and last: Liberation of Geoff, Return to Keep on the Borderlands, Rt White Plume Mt, and Falconmaster.

Also, the Temple of Elemental Evil is back in print! Until now, it was only available in POD form for a few hours last year.

I love that site and every printed product I've gotten from them has been of outstanding quality. It's like getting modules from decades ago brand new just as they were when they first came out. And the prices are pretty cheap too.

That's kind of the point of Print-on-Demand but, there's also the occassional 3e or 4e product in there, too. The whole push from WotC with PoD right now is offering a lot of the OoP titles from settings people may still be interested in.

Example: This week's offering is from Dark Sun!

I just bought Night Below thru' RPG Net. It cost me $25.13 including S&H. On Amazon, it would have cost over $100.00... Exclamation

How is the quality and lay out? I have the original box set and it's one of my fav products, but I'd like to have a back up copy. I read that for boxed sets they turn everything into a single book, including player handouts, illustrations, etc.

That's correct. I have a couple of PoD books.
Essentially, they've just formatted the PDF so it can be printed.
So, for example, the poster maps aren't a single page, they're printed in sections. Which, honestly, has it's upsides and downsides. The downside is likely obvious, so, I'll skip that
but, frankly, as a DM trying to use the map, or draw it out on the table, or whatever, it's actually convenient to be able to look at only the portion of a map I need. And that way, the players can't see it, if it's the dungeon, or whatever.

I don't know about Night Below specifically but, the other PoD books I've bought have been pretty good scans.
The OCR of the text in the PDFs is hit or miss for copy/paste, and one can't copy/paste from a physical book anyway.
but, IMO they're FAR better than $100 or more for products I want to find.

-I'll second Icarus. It might have been nice if the maps were separate, but for $75 in savings, I'll cope. My option came in a nice glossy cover with the same picture as the box set. I could have paid a little extra for a hardcover version, but passed.

I've had enough time to take a closer look at the actual CONTENT of the set (which, of course, is why I bought it). I'm still not entirely comfortable with setting it in the Yeomanry, but I be able to make it fit there. There's no rush.

Thanks Icarus and jamesdglick! I've bought several products from the site, just never one that was originally a boxed set. My copy of Night Below is the original boxed set and I got it from eBay years ago for close to $50 I think. I'm very happy that drivethrurpg is putting out printed items.
