What They're Saying About e23 Science Fiction Author and Internet Legend Cory Doctorow Says:
"Steve Jackson Games -- the venerable and excellent publisher of strategy and role-playing games -- is producing an amazing new digital line of products: games distributed as PDFs. What's amazing about that? Well, they're only available direct from SJG, and only by electronic cash. They come with "insurance" so that if you delete the files or lose them in a crash, SJG will replace them (this also means that if you find yourself at a friend's house and you want to play the game, you can login to the site and download any of your games). They come with software to help you build characters and otherwise relieve some of the tedious bookkeeping associated with paper-gaming. Finally, they don't have any DRM, because SJG believes that its customers are not crooks.
Q. Are the files in e23 copy protected?
A. No. That would interfere with your use of them. We just have to hope that we can sell enough to honest people to make up for what gets stolen by the kiddies and cheapskates.
I think that this might be the smartest digital publishing venture I've seen so far."

This book is basically a must have for anyone planning on doing a mystery role playing game." Read the entire review.
And Our Customers Say:
"I just completed my first purchase from e23 and I am impressed. The whole
process was simple and unobtrusive.
"I love what you are doing! It's about time a RPG company realized we are living in a digital age. I work abroad and I can't afford to bring anything I don't need for work. As I need my computer and PDA, your idea for PDFs is excellent."
"I would just like to thank you for a fine online service, and to point out exactly why I decided it was worthwhile making an electronic purchase through e23. Put simply, the fact that the files for sale on the site are not copy protected sold me straight away. I reformat my hard drive 2-3 times per year, and purchase a new PC every two years or so . . . If your products were copy protected I would not have made a purchase, no matter how appealing it might otherwise have been."
"This is an absoloute steal at the price. e23 rocks the house."
"Hi my name is Paolo Biggio and I am a VERY pleased customer of yours. The first time I got one of your errata-mails you were talking about in your last update on e23 it was sometime around May of last year. It was about a little error in GURPS Mysteries I hadn't even spotted and you just said: "Here's the new file. Go ahead and enjoy" (not a literal quote) I was speechless for half an hour, staring at the text of your mail, not believing what my eyes were sending to my brain. I mean, which company does something like that in a time where everyone is going crazy about DRM and IP and stuff like that. And the answer is simply: YOU!!!
