    D&D's Army

    (A thread in general support of D&D and the Hobby, when so many other current threads speak of despair and doom, and the fall of the game. It is not meant in humor, for the situation is too serious for humor. However, it is not meant literally, either. It merely seeks to give support.)

    Join me, in declaring your eternal support for D&D and our Hobby.

    Because no matter what happens, our game will endure.
    I speak out against the doomsayers, I say they are wrong, I say D&D will survive and flourish. Our game, and our Hobby, will be around centuries from now. It will remain and it will triumph, over all the adversity.

    Just put your name down, and declare you are a part of D&D's Army!

    I have no other answer to the doom and gloom. What could I possibly say?
    If Ryan himself is saying the Hobby is in real danger of collapse, in a Death Spiral, that is a truly dark pronouncement, and perhaps the state of things is truly dark.

    What could I possibly say to mitigate the darkness? What can I do to lighten things in any way?

    This is the only answer I can think of.
    Laugh at the darkness, laugh at the gloom, decry a different and better outcome, take a stance for the positive.
    Laugh at the grim situation, even if it is grim and everything may fall apart. What else can we do?
    Thus:

    D&D's Army!

    By declaring that, and placing down my signature, Edena_of_Neith, I hurl laughter at the grim situation, and I give my salute to those in our Hobby, and I assert that a better future is in store for our Hobby, than the one that is so widely perceived to be fated.
    Call it a shout of optimism. Call it mocking the doom and gloom. Call it asserting that a better future is to come.

    Come and join in.

    What if we consider your post a sign of D&D's death spiral?

    Since granny wouldn't approve of the battlecry that would otherwise appear here, I'll instead sign up quietly...

    With the font of the original DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS woodgrain box set and formatted bold, I hereby sign:

    THE DUNGEON DELVER

    as a member of D&D's Army.

    BIG COLLABORATIVE DUNGEON PROJECT! SIGN UP AND ADD A ROOM!

    Parenthetically, photostat copies of the manuscript rules were made, and when the commercial game was published, fans not willing or financially unable to expend the princely sum of $10 for the product did likewise, copying the material on school (mainly college/university) machines. We were well aware of this, and many gamers who had spent their hard-earned money to buy the game were more irate than we were. In all, though, the 'pirate' material was more helpful that not. Many new fans were made by DMs who were using such copies to run their games. - Gary Gygax
