  • D&D digital monstrous compendium. Available to those with WoTC or D&D Beyond Accounts. Volume 1 has an eldritch lich and the 10 legged asteroid spider. And the starlancer. Might have misheard some of that!

So “you’ve said that. A lot. Crazy emoji” was meant to be something supportive? Weird way to go about it. And you realize those expensive dragon minis aren’t being bought by anyone but completionist collectors or DMs who specifically need them for a scenario right? Your hypothetical Sally and Billy aren’t buying a $300 Tiamat in any world.

This is a very fascinating hypothetical world you live in where literally everyone is dying of FOMO.
No it was meant to be “silly face” but your mileage may vary. Don’t take it so seriously. It’s an Internet forum.

I will note you aren’t addressing the collecting culture promoted by the hobby and WOTC these days. I also didn’t say Sally & Billy were buying $400 dragons, it’s not just Tiamat. The price of Wizkids minis are escalating rapidly. Frameworks are pricier than GW for less product.

I’ve had “it’s just the internet calm down lol” people dox and threaten my loved ones before so you’ll forgive me if that argument holds less than zero water for me these days. But so noted that that wasn’t your intent. I’ll take you at face value there.

And I mean, that’s any and every geek-facing hobby these days. I’m more shocked that you’re acting like it’s a new thing. Again, nobody forces anyone to buy any of this. I don’t buy EVERYTHING Wizards drops for this, even if I do buy a lot of it. I guess I’m not seeing what you’re pushing at here.

Looks like it’s that and my tier purchases get a little extra off as well. Still for my case, 33.95 for it and the other like radiant citadel are only 24.99 with the same discounts applied. Worth it in my book.
If I buy a bundle, is that cheaper than buying all the books individually? Any idea how much cheaper?

(via twitter) Wildspace systems can be geocentric (Greyhawk) or heliocentric (most of them) or... whatever probably?
Heh - a way to do what crystal spheres did without the actual physical sphere, and Astral sea instead of phlogiston. The two things I disliked the most since I opened up the boxed set back in 1989 are not going to be in this iteration - I guess I wasn't the only one.

(from twitter) You can build a cottage on the back of a space whale, to be your "spelljamming ship."
And the thing I disliked the third most (the mechanics of spelljammer helms) are if not out at least optional. More chariots flying into the heavens pulled by giant swans please!

I can find what I want from 3rd party publishers (looking at you EN Publishing ;)), which is great. But there is still part of me that is saddened that I feel that I am no longer the core audience for the game I've enjoyed for decades.
Is there a particular reason you didn't answer the question? What do you want?
 

Also: Will Warlords of Krynn finally be the straw that "allows" PVP in Dungeons and Dragons to be seen in a more positive light? Like, can you take your character, say a Bard for example and have that PC's stats reflected in the Board Game only component of Warlords of Krynn? Will Snarf's Bard Slayer PC be too OP for it? Etc, etc etc.
