And the ending of the d20 STL and the GSL. Why anybdy releases anything on DMs Guild I don't know, because obviously at some point it will all go the same way. Four times bitten, won't get fooled again? Is that the saying?
Whole social stuff doesn't have the sheer amount of extra stuff that exploration does, it's there.
Every class has social abilities (or antisocial abilities!) Even the fighter and berserker have them.
Also there's a social encounter section in the exploration section of T&T.
My takeaway is it’s fine if they choose not to carry titles because it doesn’t work for them for whatever reason, but don’t then write an article complaining that those publishers seek out alternative or better ways to sell their games.
They're completely different! I don't know somebody can look at those classes and the PHB classes and come away with the conclusion that they're largely unchanged! That's such a weird thing to say that I'm now worrying if I'm in the Star Trek mirror universe where eveyrthing is opposite...
So, ok, so if that is indeed the successful formula (and I reiterate that I do not believe there is one, and there is no combination of words which would be accepted) do you feel you could have written an apology which the internet would have accepted? I suggest no. And neither could anybody...
I agree that people can (hopefully) change their behavior. I disagree that people can successfully write an accepted written public apology.
[Edit -- you edited in extra context to your post after I'd replied.]
Though is it possible to make an apology to social media which works? Somebody may have successfully done it in the last 10 years, but if so, I missed it and I feel like that would be big news. I would challenge anybody to write an apology which was accepted by onlookers. I'm fairly convinced...
Well my FLGS doesn't stock anything but D&D and some Pathfinder, so Kickstarter is my only option for buying other games. If my FLGS stocked the games I wanted to buy, I would buy them...
They’re building a mailing list. Getting all D&D players to sign up by enticing them with free content. Tried and tested method—it works.
Getting everybody to have a DDB account is going to be a very important part of the future of D&D. I’d put good money on that.
