D&D Next is coming...

The announcement it made, the publishers engaged, now it's time to see if they can dance... I feel both good and bad things about the anouncement of the development of a new edition of Dungeons & Dragons, because I think they did wonderful things with the last edition, and because there are a lot of people in the world who hated it.

Even after spending days and days reading forum posts about why people hated 4E, not a single one of them has been able to give me a reason that made any sort of sense. I am not saying 4E was perfect, but it was better than anything previous, and I feel I need to organise my thoughts on the subject and put them somewhere.

That is one of the purposes for this blog. The other is for my to say what I think about information about D&D Next that has come to light. Sometimes I will be general in my thoughts, other times I will be speicific.

So where this will take me I do not know. But I am sure I will have moments of joy and moments of horror as information about D&D Next starts to surface in more meaningful amounts, so if you are interested in what I have to say. Keep watching.

  1. D&D Next might be produced like Big Eye Small Mouth, 2nd edition. the book had both second edition rules,and first edition rules within it as well.

    what i understand of dnd Next,it would have the ability to play first edition ,and 3rd edition.
    i think wizards is 'upset" that pathfinder(3.75 dnd) sold more the 4th ed did.

    esstinals what had been assume to be 4.5 ed, is more like going backward to 3rd.

    some people in melbounre in the club scene perfer 3.5.but have down right haterd for 4th

    on the facebook, some people still are playing 1st ed
