  • 03:48 AM - Umbran quoted Greyhawk Grognard in post Is the OSR Dead?
    The OSR is about the DIY ethos... I put it to you (generic, the broad collection, rather than you, GG specifically) that the OSR is not about any *one* thing. It is folks of several different desires, all flying under one banner. It is not actually a single, coherent movement, but is instead folks with several different goals who were all served by some of the same activities. This can make discussions about the OSR, and with people who are proponents of the OSR, a little frustrating, as some folks claim it is about one thing, and others claim it is about something else - sometimes rather at odds with each other.

    Well, there's Goodman Games, Troll Lord Games, and Kenzer. Those would seem to be solid mid-tier companies. If your sole point of comparison is Wizards and Paizo (and maybe Fantasy Flight), then sure, everyone else is going to look smaller by comparison. But that goes for non-OSR publishers like Monte Cook Games, Atlas Games, and all the others just as equally. It's not a point about the insignificance of the OSR so much as it is a point about the huge domination of the RPG market by two or three publishers, OSR or not. I'm not sure if we are disagreeing about anything? That huge market disparity is exactly why I don't buy into the article's premise that OSR was a big influence on 5E. There isn't a business reason to emulate a "movement" of that small a size. Realistically, the idea of wanting to adjust the gameplay to a spot thar resonates with OSR's fan base isn't because of OSR, but because of the good qualities of that spot. That gameplay works well, so you try to return to it while still having ...

  • 07:10 PM - interfactor quoted Greyhawk Grognard in post Welcome, Joe!
    It should hopefully be no surprise that I voted for Greyhawk. :-) Honestly, Planescape always felt a little weird to me. I like the wheel, and prefer the focus of the game be on the material plane. But hey, personal taste and all that. I certainly don't begrudge anyone else who wants to play in Sigil (or Waterdeep, or Tyr, or wherever). Joe / GG I think that weird was one of the goals of the setting. Tony DiTerlizzi's incredible art set that tone from the get go. Beautiful and otherworldly. Besides, if dimensional travel isn't weird, you're not doing it right. :) Joe, you should include a link to your excellent blog in your sig. And thanks for ADD, it is a great game!

  • 03:22 PM - Lord_Blacksteel quoted Greyhawk Grognard in post Final playtest packet due in mid September.
    I get the impression that they learned their lesson from the 4E license fiasco. One of the reasons 4E fell flat was that nobody was writing anything for it but WotC. If they had half the companies writing product for 4E that ended up writing for Pathfinder, I think it could be argued that 4E would be in a much better position now. As someone mentioned above there were 3rd party adventures and race/class books published early on for 4E. That said I agree the license was a barrier. A sometimes-overlooked obstacle is that nothing from 3rd party character books was added to the character builder and that pretty much killed those types of supplements. I'd love to see them go back to the OGL but I doubt the larger corporate elements will let that happen again. I'm sure there will be some kind of online subscription model support program, but with the simplified character building process (compared to 4E) it may not be as essential with Next as it was considered to be with the last edition.
