so some new settings and classes plus subsystems?It is a fabulous new. Not only they have survived the videogame age but now it is living its best time. most famous than ever, and no menace of satanic panic. We are like the first years of Disney resurection (Beast and Beauty, Aladdin, Mulan, Lion King..), with a great future ahead.
But it is not only republish old glories, but to work in a d20 system ready for universally-compatible genres, even with firearms, modern technology, sci-fi and superpowers, to allow the adaptation of famous franchises from comics, movies and videogames.
Firstly, I don't hate any edition. I've been playing this game nonstop since the 90s and I'm always DMing whichever edition is the current. Not sure how you are labeling me a hater just with that.It means... Haters gonna Hate!!
the victory of the nerds it seems.I recently found out that two old friends of mine, women in their late 40s/early 50s who back when we were all living in the same city 20 year ago used to razz me about blocking out a day every two weeks for my D&D campaign and my "nerdy hobbies," are now playing D&D regularly in a group of all women going on a year and my mind was blown. This personal anecdote really drove home for me how popular and normalized D&D is now and I absolutely love it.
This summer will bring the return of D&D Live and D&D Celebration to announce the rest of the products due out for the line this year.
D&D Live is July 16th this year, so if this line is true, there is unlikely to be a book released this July.
So the possiblities are:
1: An announcement is planned for July, but the announcement is so soon they decided it doesn't count.
2: They release each book a month later then we originally expected, August, October, and December.
3: Two of the books are linked together functionally, so they are both released in September, like a Campaign Setting book with tie in Adventure book, with the third released in November.
4: Something I haven't thought of yet.
