Re: ADND in the new.. POSITIVE that is!!

I, for one, am glad that kids today can openly play D&D without being shunned, bullied or treated like losers for it.

Re: ADND in the new.. POSITIVE that is!!

I was in Target today, and while passing through the toys section, I saw the starter kit for 5E D&D.

In Target! I've never seen a big retail store carry D&D products before (aside from bookstores).

The hobby really has become mainstream.

Re: Sold my 3rd Ed crap

I wasn't being an ass about it. Yes, you were. You could have just said, "No, that's not correct," then cited the correction. But that wasn't enough, you had to call me "wrong (as usual)" and then take another potshot at me at the end of your post by including "(for example...

Re: Sold my 3rd Ed crap

First, 2E material (both old and new) was available in stores and in print up until 2000. Second, you're wrong (as usual) when it comes to facts about older editions. TSR did not stop publishing new material in 1995. Alright, my mistake. But there's no reason to be an ass about it. Poor excuse. It'...

Re: Sold my 3rd Ed crap

That's some interesting math there. 2nd Edition was in print from 1989 until 2000, when 3E was released. That's 11 years, not 6. No new material was released for 2e after 1995, which is when TSR went bankrupt. Between 1995 and 2000, D&D was essentially dead. That's why I didn't include it. Oh p...

Re: Sold my 3rd Ed crap

I submit, why learn a new system to give you a nostalgic feeling when you can still play the original that provides that feeling without having to take out a loan to buy new books and accessories? Lots of possible reasons, I'd say. First of all, not everyone still has their old books. A lot of peop...

Re: Sold my 3rd Ed crap

It was: Original 1974-1977 (3 years) 1st Edition 1977-1989 (12 years) 2nd Edition 1989-1995 (6 years) 3rd Edition 2000-2008 (8 years) 4th Edition 2008-2010 (2 years) 5th Edition 2014-2018 (4 years and counting, with planned material for the rest of this year and 2019, at least) And yes, Paizo is rel...

Re: Sold my 3rd Ed crap

That seems really unlikely to me. In order for 6E to be 'already written or mostly so' means they would have had to started working on it when 5E was still in production. I doubt even WotC has the resources to work on two new editions concurrently, especially since 4E was such a financial blow to th...

Re: Sold my 3rd Ed crap

Speaking of which, isn't version 6.0 just about ready to hit the sales floor? I mean, 5th has been out for what, almost 3 years now, right? :P Four years, but that's highly unlikely. Fifth Edition is still going very strong, they are still releasing new material for it and are still announcing new ...

Re: Sold my 3rd Ed crap

Because they aren't criminals?

Because they want to support the company that makes the products they love?

Because there's no guarantee that pirated pdfs won't also contain viruses or malware?

Wow, Hal, you're a real hero by standing up to the ultimate of bullies... school shooter survivors . I look forward to the statue they build in your honor. That aside, although this joke does have political undertones, it was not an invitation to start discussing politics, which is still against the...

Re: Neverwinter Nights Comeback - 16 years later!

I actually still have NWN installed on my PC. Picked it up from GOG on a Christmas sale years ago. I still play some of the fanmade modules on it from time to time. Never joined an online world with it, though. Are the servers even still up for that?
