    WotC WotC doesn’t own the trademark for Mind Flayer

    In the real world the calendar marches on, but on the Internet (if you're old enough) we've been in Eternal September since 1993. (Back in the day the internet was mostly academics - September was when the new students would show up with their school accounts and things would be nuts for a...

    TSR The Full & Glorious History of NuTSR

    The bolded bit is why I'm fully expecting this to go all the way to trial, unless there's some kind of summary judgment that gets it ruled in Wizards favor without a trial.

    D&D 5E Journeys Through the Radiant Citadel a Nebula Award finalist!

    Wow - this is one of those awards where it literally is an honor just to get nominated given all of the competition in any given year. Congrats to the team for this one - well deserved IMO.

    OSR Swords and Wizardry Complete Revised Kickstarter pre-launch.

    I believe it means it's a revision of the "Swords & Wizardry Complete" rulebook:

    TSR The Full & Glorious History of NuTSR

    Wait - let me get this straight. They're selling "limited edition" autographed copies of a book where the autograph is from someone who worked for the guy who wrote the book? I don't even know what to say to that. It's such a weird idea that I'm not sure if it's just stupid, or if it's stupid-plus.

    Your "Perfect RPG" Wishlist...

    I'm too flighty to have a "perfect" RPG. Sometimes I want one kind of game, sometimes I want another. If I started going into descriptions I'd start to sound like the kids on that Simpson's episode where they were the focus group telling the Itchy & Scratchy team about the perfect Itchy &...

    TSR The Full & Glorious History of NuTSR

    Which of these is the dumbest and/or meanest answer? No, that's not necesarily the right one. It's just the bar that you should definitely be looking under to find other answers that are dumber and meaner that might be right.

    Pulse check on 1D&D excitement level

    I'm meh but also that's actually ok. D&D as the mass market game that is relatively stable and isn't constantly innovating feels about right for a mass market game that has been around for 50 years. It's like asking me if I'm excited about the next printing of Clue - I really probably shouldn't...

    D&D Movie/TV Guess the D&D Movie Opening Weekend Box Office Performance, and Win a Prize!

    Are you sure? I ask because that is what IMDB says the budget was for the D&D movie in 2000 and a LOT of the "reporting" around this film seems to be just including the $45M budget as if it were Honor Among Thieves budget. I can't find a reputable source that has actual budget numbers for Honor...

    D&D Movie/TV D&D Movie Hit or Flop?

    An opening weekend at Black Adam's level would actually beat expectations for the film's opening weekend. And actually, if it puts up numbers as good as Black Adam's then Paramount would be thrilled - that would put it smack in the middle of Snarf's total domestic range projected for the movie...

    D&D Movie/TV Guess the D&D Movie Opening Weekend Box Office Performance, and Win a Prize!

    Around $50M so I'll say $50M - I don't think anyone has guessed that specific number yet. I think it's tracking to be between $50 and $60M and Black Adam made more than $60M domestic on its opening weekend - weather permitting, I'm really hoping a fun looking action movie with Chris Pine can...

    The "I Didn't Comment in Another Thread" Thread

    "Please just block each other so this thread can get back on track." There's one thread in particular that's ticking me off with this one at the moment, but it does apply more generally. I wish people would either just check out of threads without having to have the last word or, if they can't...

    See - it worked! :)

    A New "anti-D&D" Era

    First - RPGs are a category of game that you need to teach people to play. Candyland exists for kids to teach them how to play boardgames - very few people step into a board game of even moderate difficulty without having played at least one easy board game before it. Why would you expect RPGs...

    I did a synonym search on google for "forgotten" and "unremembered" is the first word that came up. Wouldn't surprise me if whatever thesaurus he used was the same.

    Andrews McMeel Universal Exits RPGs

    I'm a sucker for Oz stuff in general. I have two different versions for 5e already but the book is so beautiful I keep thinking about it. I kinda wish it was a non-D&D lightweight standalone ruleset instead because then I likely would have bought it when it first came out.

    Monte Cook teases The Magnus Archives Roleplaying Game

    Yes. Non-Lovecraftian eldritch or cosmic horror is a great way to describe it. No shoggoths or elder things but the vibe of these entities beyond our understanding interfering with the world is there. They did a really good job of building up their own Mythos and coming up with different things...

    Andrews McMeel Universal Exits RPGs

    Yeah - I guess I need to pick those up sooner rather than later if I'm going to get them aren't I?

    "The Unremembered Realms"? Really? There's lazy and then there's whatever this is. Anyway I'm not a lawyer, but I'm not sure that "humor" is the relevant thing for a parody defense - I thought it was more about commentary on the thing being parodied rather than whether the humor works or is...

    Avatar Legends: The Roleplaying Game Starter Set at Target

    I mean, this is not really different from the D&D Starter Set that is already on the shelves. I guess the difference might be that some parent buys it thinking it's a board game rather than an RPG and the kid doesn't know what they're getting, but to be fair stories like that happened back in...
