So, WotC is making a new Starter Set that includes what is ostensibly Mike Wheeler's adventure from "Stranger Things," with the kid's characters as pretend and 80's style dice, available for preorder now.
Yeah, probably? I'd expect, if anything, for this to be a limited edition item.
I admit this time I am really surprised. I couldn't expect something like this.
Weird that they didn't put an aspect of the real Demogorgon, the two-headed demon prince, who was the real villain of Mikes adventure. They used petalhead instead. Still, it will likely attract new players, so I'm all for it.
Wait a moment! I am thinking. If this an agreement between WotC and Netflix... why not to think this is the first step? Maybe we will see Hasbro toys about some Netflix franchise, or cartoon videogames about some Hasbro's toy, for example a reboot for young adults of "Inhumanoids".
I would dare to say more things. Maybe WotC has plans with RPGs about some IP from speculative fiction, not only fantasy, but this would need a d20 Modern 2.0. and WotC is working about that.
