    News Digest: Controversy Abounds! New Vampire Edition Details, Green Ronin's Talent Search, 7th Sea

    The vitriol I see in this thread absolutely baffles me. For the record I've been gaming since the early 1970s and have been a freelance writer/developer since the mid-80s, I'm friends with Ari, CA, Chris and many of the other people involved in the Lost Citadel project. To address all the...

    How do you feel about the future of D&D after the official announcements?

    I clicked "positive" but I guess my attitude can best be summed up as "cautiously pessimistic" in that it's possible that the damage to the brand may already have been done and the divided gaming community may not be easily healed. The new team is impressive and I think Mike Mearls is a good...

    Off to see the Wizards: The day that WotC showed me D&D 5th Edition

    As I doubt there will be much market for used 4E books I am contemplating holding a Viking funeral for mine and inviting my friends to watch.

    Off to see the Wizards: The day that WotC showed me D&D 5th Edition

    Part of me wonders whether this is simply WotC's closing the barn door after the horse has run away, but there are good people involved in this project and they appear to have a firm understanding of the previous edition's shortcomings in terms of testing and marketing. I have signed up for the...

    TSR Example from the worst TSR adventure module(s) ever published

    Actually I don't recall it being a hard-and-fast requirement, but since everyone else was doing it, we followed suit. It was an example of a good practice getting worn out by overuse and becoming a major tool in the "railroad the players" arsenal. I recall the early Dragonlance adventures being...

    TSR Example from the worst TSR adventure module(s) ever published

    Yeah, that would be me -- IIRC the boxed text that describes the battle (yes, more boxed text telling the PCs what happened instead of letting them do anything) was an account of how the playtest actually went. While we were playtesting, one of my friends playfully threw a beanbag at me, hit me...

    TSR Example from the worst TSR adventure module(s) ever published

    *snort* I think I was emulating a GM friend of mine who'd called his red dragon "Scorch" -- though naming an electric creature "Volt" in a world where Alessandro Volta never existed does kind of beggar comprehension...

    TSR Example from the worst TSR adventure module(s) ever published

    This is what I get for lurking and rarely reading the forums -- a two-year old reminder of my early rpg writing career. I entered this thread with a sense of impending doom, knowing that one of my old modules was going to show up. I recall your review, Eric and linked to it from my old website...

    B5 & Mongoose - Straczynski not pleased

    A novel-length commentary Hi – I haven’t posted on these boards in a long time, but given my interest in the issues being discussed here, I feel some compulsion to weigh in. This has turned into a small novel, and I hope that I don’t come across too badly (or, god forbid, pretentious). If I...

    Looking for Gencon Accommodations

    Hi all: If this is the wrong forum for posting a request like this, please accept my apologies. My name is Anthony Pryor, and I was the developer for Scarred Lands and am currently editing books for Necromancer Games. I'm going to be attending Gencon Indy 05, but the friends I was going to be...
