You know you've made the big time ...
When they start to pirate your work.

Well, maybe not big time. But it is oddly and unexpectedly warming to know that someone took the time to cut out all the pages of a module, scan them, and upload them to a pirate RPG site.

Thanks to El Mono de la Revolución for the heads up.

Where the heck is the Harleybot? That tin can hasn't shown up for work in weeks!

Uh, link to said site? :)

That’s the sort of thing you don't want to propagate. But, sadly, even if I did want to pass it around (for educational purposes only, of course ;) ) the Mono didn’t give me the url. But ask around in enough dark alleys and smoky speakeasies, and I’m sure it will turn up.

"It was the secret Harley meant to keep, all wrapped up in a viel of hard silk and lies..."

I can hear the gumshoe metaphors just flowing forth.

Yeah, I realized it probably wouldn't be the best thing to post the link on your site. I just wanted to see what module. :)

"Yeah, I realized it probably wouldn't be the best thing to post the link on your site."

Yeah. :) That'd be tough to explain to the publisher:

"See? Isn't it cool? They like it enough to steal it!"

Once my roommate was using KaZaA (P2P music-stealing software, basically), and he started flipping out.

"Josh, get over here!"

Wading through a field of empty cans of Mountain Dew and drumped silver chip bags, I made it over to the other side of the room to see that someone was downloading some of MY music illegally.

That was so awesome. I probably just gave one of my songs the same name as a Birtney Spears track unintentionally, but still, it was cool.

Josh W's "Toxic." A featured dowload over at Itunes. >:)

Josh, my favorite song of yours is, "Ooops! Aye, Squid It Again"! That's one's great.

Just curious, anonymous: Who are "they?"
