    WotC New D&D survey from WotC

    What did you answer in regards to having every played Magic? That seems to be the real common denominator.

    WotC New D&D survey from WotC

    The fact that my entire Magic collection consists of 2 guild starter decks from 2012, 3 planeswalker decks from 2019 and 2020, and the arena starter kit seems like it would have been information that might have been useful to give my answers some context.

    D&D 5E Everything We Know About The Ravenloft Book

    The previous version of Ravenlofy had been abandoned by Wizards for 15 years. The old plot was not going to be continued, at least officially. My heart goes out to fans hurt by that, especially if the new version is a worse one. But I see this more as a new Battlestar Galactica or She-Ra...

    D&D 5E Everything We Know About The Ravenloft Book

    That's taking it personal, which I would recommend not doing. I could never watch something like Gotham, which makes massive, sometimes in my view detrimental changes to Batman lore, but I don't take it as an personal slight I get what they're doing, it's just not for me. They made changes that...

    D&D 5E Players Killing Players for stupid reason

    So maybe I missed it somewhere, but it seems like you've completely skipped over anyways of preventing the rogue from going through with their plans. Did you try asking the rest of the party to help you restrain them? You sound fairly well-to-do, hire some heavies to capture them before they...

    D&D 5E Everything We Know About The Ravenloft Book

    So I think it was a misunderstanding because I read it at first as Innistrad being the Snyder Cut in the analogy. But the context of the post gives the quote a negative vibe, so I'm not sure your interpretation hits the mark completely.

    D&D 5E Everything We Know About The Ravenloft Book

    They create a much bigger version of this problem in the form of making entirely different versions of the game, so I imagine they aren't worried about this. "If you are a person who really has a strict belief in the original, I would not advise that you watch this program. It'll hurt them."...

    D&D 5E Everything We Know About The Ravenloft Book

    I have seen a few posters here decry Curse of Strahd and get into "not my Ravenloft" territory though,, and since I'm lazy and don't want to dig through threads if any of them are hanging around I'd be up to here their side of the story. But it makes sense they would hew closer with Barovia...

    D&D 5E Everything We Know About The Ravenloft Book

    So the answer to the first question is name recognition, which I'm sure you already knew. I don't think there's a winning choice between "all new domains that are clearly treading the same ground and are meant to be updated version of old domains" and "updating the old domains" if the goal is...

    D&D 5E Everything We Know About The Ravenloft Book

    So as someone who has never played or read any Ravenloft material prior to Curse of Strahd, I'm interested in a comparison of the level of differences between CoS and older material to the changes Van Richten's guide is making to the setting. I wonder if there's a precedent here.

    Marvel could publish DC.

    I don't think anyone is assuming Marvel would be a Mortal Kombat level rating. Injustice is far from being a Mortal Kombat rating.

    D&D 5E Adventures in the Forgotten Realms MtG set Planeswalkers confirmed.

    In all practical measures Will and Rowan being on one card counts as one planeswalker for the set, I imagine. As far as the developers deciding how many they could fit. Not to disagree with your main point, 3-5 is the most likely range.

    WotC So, when do the announce the July book? Guesses on what it'll be? 🤔

    Either a Commander deck if you want to try the commander mode of play, or a pre-release kit which comes with enough boosters + extras to make a deck. If your local store if able to host a pre-release event for the set, you'll end up doing the latter.

    WotC So, when do the announce the July book? Guesses on what it'll be? 🤔

    These are what you would be considered the "normal" booster pack. That somewhat depends if you're hoping to go down to game night at the store, or play with friends at home.

    WotC WotC Announces D&D Live Streaming Event

    Netflix is a very different thing from "trying lots of stream shows that struggle to pick up a following." These announcement streams do well, but that's part of their nature as once-a-year super events.

    D&D 5E Ravenloft Previews of Dementlieu, Lamordia, and Har'Akir

    So as a test to see whether the Mummy character still remains as part of the core "Halloween monster gang" I looked at the covers of the Hotel Transylvania films. And a mummy is on each of them. I therefore state with confidence that young people today are still aware of mummies and associate...

    WotC So, when do the announce the July book? Guesses on what it'll be? 🤔

    Wyatt's were a lot...simpler than Winninger's. Winninger was much more about forming your own world and seeding it with secrets. Wyatt's was about making a 4e campaign (not a world) using the 4e base assumptions (Dawn War gods, points of light, ect.) and creating character hooks and...
