    WotC World Reveal of Baldur's Gate 3

    Well, that and maybe that the writing in the first place was horrible. We just got older (and hopefully wiser), so we're able to spot bad writing better, while the past is twinged with notalgia.

    WotC World Reveal of Baldur's Gate 3

    Pretty much sums up the Baldur's Gate fans who defend RTwP. They want BG3 to be more like the original BG games. On the other hand, there are a contingent of players who want BG3 to be more like D&D 5e.

    WotC World Reveal of Baldur's Gate 3

    Me, because having played several of the modern RTwP games, they're horrible (as in their choice of game mechanics doesn't synergize well with RTwP and the game suffers mostly for it... feels like those games chose RTwP because of marketing reasons more than because it made sense for their game).

    WotC World Reveal of Baldur's Gate 3

    In this case, it's less about funds and more of: a) squashing unforeseen bugs, b) refining game mechanics (whether combat or some other element) If you're worried about the story, Early Access doesn't release the entire game, usually just one section: enough to play with the mechanics, but...

    D&D General Companies Cut Ties With Judges Guild After Owner's Racist Posts

    There's two ways to look at it: 1) Even the most objectionable views have their fair share of supporters. I guess it comes down to the owner thinking that there are more people who agree with them than those who don't. 2) Some people still support problematic companies/institutions regardless...

    Paizo Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous Video Game Kickstarter Live

    They already built their (not so optimized/buggy) engine for the 1st Edition rulesest. They'd have to start over if they want to do Second Edition. Also, they have a lot of lore and campaigns they can draw on from First Edition.

    Critical Role Wildemount: Most Pre-orders Since D&D Core Rulebooks

    1) It's the campaign setting of a new generation of D&D players who grew up watching celebrities play D&D on stream. 2) Green Ronin published one of the continents in the setting.

    Diamond Distributors Top 100 RPG Products By Sales

    Again, it depends on how large a market Diamond is vs. the costs of Paizo, both of which are info we don't have. The problem with Diamond sales is that its market are comic book stores and some specialty stores. It's a step in the right direction for Paizo that they dominate these charts, but...

    Diamond Distributors Top 100 RPG Products By Sales

    Not necessarily. It means P2 commands presumably a large chunk of a small pie. Now whether that small pie is profitable/popular enough...

    Critical Role Here's The Official Wildemount Announcement!

    Definitely. :) Just wanted to hop on the "OK, Boomer" meme since the arguments for that meme apply here. I think it's thing to say that the campaign setting isn't for you (it definitely isn't for me... but I'm getting old and not the type of person who watches RPGs played on streams), but it's...

    Critical Role Here's The Official Wildemount Announcement!

    Don't hold your breath on Dragonlance. Like what Aebir-Toril said, it's unlikely that Dragonlance is going to be revived anytime soon. I like Dragonlance as a fiction line, but honestly it's a horrible gaming line (or rather, it doesn't make a lot of sense as a gaming line). The reason you...

    Critical Role Here's The Official Wildemount Announcement!

    You don't like the trend that D&D is appealing to a new generation of gamers instead of boomers?

    That Full D&D Renault Commercial Is Here And It Features Tiamat And Venger!

    It's only copyright infringement if they did not license the property beforehand. Whether they actually have the license or not is beyond my knowledge.

    Chinese Government Burns Cthulhu RPG Print Run

    In general, China has guidelines on certain tropes/themes that are banned from the country. The concept of banning something is not inherently wrong--Germany bans Nazi iconography for example--but specific applications of censorship (since this is being performed by the government) are open to...

    So is Dragon magazine becoming upcoming ads?

    Some points I'd like to mention: * 4E Dragon is theoretically more playtested than 3E Dragon magazine (which is probably why there's more "previews" than content that won't be reprinted anywhere else). * Some people find value in previews, or getting content ahead of time. * 4E has a format...
