comment How to deal with players that wants their characters to do automatic perception, stealth and searching for traps/secret doors?
How often do you put in situations where the PC's are harmed because they didn't do one of the things on their checklist? Usually, phrases like these are said because there's no other way of preventing harm to their character.

comment How to deal with a group reluctant to think and discuss?
It's not that this question is unanswerable, off-topic, or too broad, it's that this question seems to be a Rorschach Blob that causes everybody to address a (different) abstract problem than your actual problem. Consider adding a concrete example of something that's gone wrong and your group has refused to discuss, this may focus the answers more.

comment What is the average number of sales of adventures (modules) and adventure settings (hexcrawls) for OSR publishers?
@GMJoe The problem I'm trying to solve is knowing how many people I would reach if I were to publish a module or setting. Below a certain threshold, it might be worth considering alternative means of publication or figuring out a way to drive those numbers up; the average of the OSR is a way of testing the waters. Your comment about adventures published for an OSR system being related to that systems popularity I don't actually believe is true; most of these systems are close enough that their modules are cross-compatible and they appeal to the same audience. This is a quirk of the OSR.

All my criticisms aside, this is still a very helpful answer. The number of backers for The Black Hack is illuminating, as is the general size of the OSR compared to the size of the industry as a whole.

This answers questions about game rules, but fails to consider a few things: a large portion of retroclone systems are available completely for free directly from the companies websites (Labyrinth Lord, LotFP, OSRIC, S&W), often only lacking art or some descriptive text. Second, I'm asking about Adventures or Settings, not rules systems themselves. I have reason to believe that the sales of adventures and campaign settings are outside the norm for the industry, given the general cross-compatibility of these systems. I appreciate your answer though; the #13 position and 38 sales is helpful.

Added some clarifying points about what I want out of this question, as well as some ways answers might be improved (but aren't the heart of the question)
