Unsurprisingly, no new reveals suggesting Amazon just jumped the gun by a day or two. Probably because they knew they needed to get the UA out now and know doing the reveal at the live shows doesn't work as EVERYONE watching already knows

If there is an October book, we'll find out at the live show.
But I hope not as having a hardcover in Sept, Oct and Nov is a 3rd Ed style heavy release schedule
Too much content means the content isn't special and a book is easier to skip
 


I guess it is about more merchandising products. D&D is becoming an icon of the current USA pop culture, and I guess the fandom community should feel very proud about that.

I guess it is about more merchandising products. D&D is becoming an icon of the current USA pop culture, and I guess the fandom community should feel very proud about that.

It's always controversial; a lot of gamers were previously unpopular (myself included) and kind of resent the 'popular kids' getting into their hobby. I personally don't have a problem with it, though I'm still not admitting to people at work I have a Sunday D&D game.

You see a lot of the same dynamic when a band becomes very popular. "Sellouts!" (But of course TSR was for-profit from day 1 and used to sue people making homebrew content, even if they were posting it for free on the internet. Heck, they sold a woodburning kit, way before the current boom in geek crafting that would have made it a reasonable proposition.)

People also get emotionally invested in things they liked a lot in childhood or adolescence--I remember everyone saying "Michael Bay ruined my childhood!" when the live-action Transformers movies came out. Nah, he made a bunch of movies about stuff you enjoyed as a kid that you didn't like. I cried when Optimus Prime died in the cartoon (I was 7). I admit to watching the first Bay movie, not getting much out of it, and not continuing.

The video is silly. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg. People are allowed to have different tastes than me.
