This is my first time with The Cthanta Claus Gift Exchange.

I would like to know what procedure can be used so that a PDF can be bought and sent to another person without revealing the buyer's identity ?

If you're using DTRPG, under "My Account Settings," you can change your name to anything you like.

You will probably want to ask your target for their DriveThruRpg email since it might not be the one they use here.

I guess they would need to post it somewhere on their RPG Geek user profile then, because otherwise it will be "Cthanta Claus" that will get this information, not me.

And what happens if they don't have their own DTRPG profile ?

When you buy digital content for someone on DTRPG, it asks what email address you want them to send the "you've got PDFs" email to. If it's an email that isn't attached to an account, they'll still get the email, and it will prompt them to create an account in order to get their PDFs.

Nope, if you message them using the 'send message to your target' feature within the exchange, they can send a message with the information back to you the same way without knowing who you are.

Good to know.

I always use the traditional method of logging in/out, but I will be using this advanced feature for sure.

Here is another question concerning DriveThruRPG.

What name will appear on the Watermark ? The buyer, or the person who received the gift ?

I have been contacted by great Cthanta Claus

I was first criticized for my poor wish list selection and had to beef it up

But, I was also been assigned to post a Haiku to the great master:

Oh great Cthulu
Yog sothoth grants me power
My Sanity wanes

I hope this pleases them

Edit:
too many syllables in Haiku

So my Secret Santa asked me what was my favourite question that I had asked in the context of Question Of The Day (QOTD) ?

It was not easy to answer that question, because I have asked a ton of questions in the past twelve months, some more pertinent then others.

Reviewing the matter, I would say that one of my favourite questions was the one concerning the amount of desirable "railroading" in RPGs.

https://rpggeek.com/thread/2039191/qotd-aug-8-what-amount-ra...

This question generated a lot of discussion, and was very useful for me.

Thank you for asking, Cthanta Claus.

cool

For all you Cthanta's out there - I highly recommend you check out all the big companies for Black Friday deals.

Modiphius, for example, are selling the Star Trek Adventures core book for just £25 printed (£10 pdf); Achtung! Cthulhu Keeper's guide is just £10 print, Symbaroum core is £20 and Conan pdf collection is £80 (plus others!) https://www.modiphius.net/collections/black-friday-2018


Also, all the DriveThru websites have deals:

https://www.dmsguild.com/blackfriday.php?filters=0_0_0_0_0_4...

When you go to each of the sites (DriveThruRPG ; RPGNow ; DriveThruComics ; DriveThruFiction ; DriveThruCards ; DMsGuild ; Storytellers Vault ) they have a link in the top left that's hard to miss taking you to the bargains!


These all usually last through till Sunday. (Shame it's not payday yet for me lol)
