4E Black Humor

Funny Onion-styles news report over at pats_quinade, Fourth Edition D&D Kills 3, Wounds 1.

The wailing and gnashing of teeth is getting a little out of hand for a game no one but a few playtesters have seen yet.

I saw the same kind of knee-jerk reactions to Exalted 2e and Warhammer 40,000 4e, not to mention every single 40k supplement since then. Gamers react this way to everything new that comes out, and I've grown rather cynical of any reaction not based on actual play.

Personally, I've read I think everything on the WotC cite about 4e and like what I'm seeing so far. That big issue I have is that fact that people think 4e is going to invade their home and burn their old books or something. People can just keep playing 3.5, or 3.0 or 2.0 or any other bloody version or system they want if they don't like 4e.

As for the online stuff, I see it as a boon. I'll be either moving across the state in January or going who knows where for grad school in the fall of 08, and I can't be sure I'll find players. Having the online functionality will make my life easier, provided I actually have the time to run or play. And for those lucky enough to still have a table and real live friends to play with, it'll just add to the experiance or they can ignore the completely optional features.

Concerning the open game licensce, which I have some stake in as a fledging freelancer, I'm confused, since I keep hearing that there is no license, but no wait there will be. So I'm not going to hold my breath and I'm going to see where things go. It's not as if I have time for design until 08 anyway.
