I'm starting to see an interesting turn in the evolution of all this discussion on D&D 5E that has me wondering something. The thing I noticed was a number of folks, on message boards and Facebook, including a little addendum in their suggestions for their design ideas, in that they might write something along the lines of 'I hope WotC includes (blank) in their new rules or that it at least makes it into the revision of Pathfinder' or 'I hope 5E or PF starts allowing (blank) in the next edition.' Now these aren't exact quotes but I am noticing similar posts and it makes me wonder if one of the unintended results of the D&D 5E open discussion and playtest is going to manifest in better RPGs throughout the community. Will some suggestions for D&D 5E be so well received that a lot of RPGs might adopt them? Will some D&D 5E suggestions be seen as not good for D&D 5E but wind up being picked up by other RPGs going forward? Thoughts?
