Regarding WotC/Hasbro’s less than intelligent descision…
I’ve been reading a lot of venom regarding WotC’s latest customer relations SNAFU. The tirades are justified and I can’t blame my fellow gamers for feeling betrayed. Corporate America has swallowed D&D and the committees are treating us like a focus group that can be manipulated.
Since we are pretty much agreed that WotC has screwed up royally this time may I politely turn your attention towards a company that knows what gamers want. A company that has available .pdfs, reasonable licensing and print on demand. Pinnacle Entertainment Group publishers of the Savage Worlds rules. A simple easy to learn system that can do just about anything.
But Stev, we still like D&D, it’s just WotC that has earned our ire. Fine might I suggest Shaintar, a D&D like setting using the Savage rules system. With a D20 conversion, your D&D, characters, monsters, settings can be imported.
I understand that WotC has ticked you off. Do something about it.
