Now you just get bullied by the nerds for playing D&D wrong.
I love the ampersand, but I still type Dnd much more often (I set up my phone to autocorrect that to D&D, tho) because it’s just faster and I’m not worried about it.I refuse to believe the "dnd" is the more common abbreviation than "d&d". Are people that allergic to ampersands?
I don’t think that was the original intent of the thread or the show it refers too.So this is yet another thread to cleverly show that 5e has somehow actually continued to climb in popularity?
If so, congratulations.
The game could have peaked in terms of sales 5 years ago and still be considered a huge success.
Now it is becoming something else. I am not sure what, but its going beyond the niche that it, and we, have occupied for all these years.
Who do you think the target will be? The OSR movement? Queer games like Thirsty Sword Lesbians and Monsterhearts? I think this is a curious prediction to make.Some times I suspect 2022-3 will be the years of a new wave of Satanic panic, and this time worse than the one from 80's but D&D will not be the target, but others, and I don't mean Word of Darkness by White Wolf.
I'd be interested in the trends for common terms within 5e, more than how often 5e is searched.As I stated earlier, when something hits a certain level of common knowledge search requests go down.
People don't search for things they already know. They search for the topics within that thing
Eh, most of us got over it.Compromise never feels good does it?
I don't so much laugh as grit my teeth in a slowly simmering rage at how screwed over people on the bottom end of these companies are constantly getting in order to serve that "constant growth quarter after quarter no matter what" mentality.yeah I get a good laugh at the idea of "You need to grow your business" mentality...
like if you make $10 profit this year and $10 profit next year that is seen as a failur to grow... now imagine x a million (literally $10,000,000 profit 2 years in a row seen as a fail) and you ave what has been drilled into some people heads.
Heck if I made any profit at all (lets say $500) and made slightling less profit but still profit the next year (lets say $450) it is still profit
Absolutely. At least in the current form of the market, and with so much unchecked monopolization. A lot of the issue ameliorates on it's own when wealth is more evenly distributed. But then, the nature of the system trends toward stratification, so...This is why I think publicly traded companies are a bad idea.
The warhammer at least is pretty good. Sickle is one of those weapons that wants for special properties. Lemme grab a shield with it and give an ally advantage on their next attack against the target, or something.Given that my biggest gripe with post-Tasha's 5E was that they seemed to do a 180 in the middle of an edition's lifespan... I might not mind five-year plans for D&D, honestly.
Also the hammer and the sickle can finally get a much-needed damage buff.
Oof. Yeah. Every time I go to do something or research something or whatever on my 401(k) it shoes me the daily growth. it's the worst thing possible. I just remind myself that I'm getting money back on my taxes every year for investing, and that over decades investment of large sums in index funds and other "stable" investments have proven safe bets so reliably that it'd probably take total collapse for me to not have decent retirement savings in 30 years...That's a good point. I never make any extrapolations about my 401k from monthly, quarterly, or even yearly numbers: I always look at the ten-year and twenty-year charts in order to filter out the noise of the moment.
