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.

That's a very sound and reasonable approach, I think. It's possible I might change my mind at some point in the years to come, after the full extent of what 4E is and is not becomes apparent, but I doubt it. After 25+ years of purchases, there's really not a lot anyone can sell me for D&D that's not just gilding the lily.

(Except periodicals and the occasional adventure. I'd love to see more of that kind of stuff)

I'll keep making magazines as long as people are buying them.

I think that the discontent from veterans is probably fine for the WotC business managers. The average "gaming lifespan" of a D&D player is about 4 or 5 years, so the rest of us are huge exceptions to the rule.

The 4-5 year turnover seems about right. That's why I have a hard time getting angry at WotC anymore. Their priorities as a business are not my priorities as a gamer Now that I fully realize and accept this, I can just move and be happy about it. Truth be told, I probably should've done so sooner than I did.
