So...my humble pie is rather delicious, I offer a short story to illustrate how it was prepared and brought before me...
So a month or two ago, I noticed that I had been abandoned. Yup, abandoned. You, my readers had left me in droves. Strangely, my followers list continued to grow, but none of you were commenting anymore. That made me one saaaaaad dungeon master. So fast forward a little, as I try an peer through my unemployment beard, and I notice some kind of odd error with my blog - stupid widgets disappearing when I scroll past a certain point. Extremely annoying. I change my template - which seems to have fixed the problem, and notice that I had turned my comment moderation on...and forgotten about it...so now I am eating my dumbass flavored pie and see that I am still loved :)
Even though none of you actually left, let me still say that you were missed :)
So...open question. Is 4E beginning to creep too much? I only say this, because it appears that we are rapidly heading in the direction of too many builds for too many classes. Seriously, WotC - PLEASE SLOW DOWN A LITTLE. I am no longer buying books because I can't keep up. Simpler system or no, you are rapidly filling the punchbowl faster than we can drink it up. I don't think I need to tell you where that will inevitably lead. I get the whole "evolution of a ruleset" idea, but as time goes by, it is going to be a repeat of the past...More campaigns, less new rules please.
And another thing, what in the hell ever happened to adventure tools? Not a peep in ages about any of the other add-ons that were such a huge part of the release. I know, I know, I get that you have scaled back your plans a bit, but still...not even an update?
I'm not going to hold my breath while waiting for a response, nor do I really expect one. I just had to talk about it to someone who isn't obligated to agree with me on pain of death - it's a DM thing.
Until next time - game well, and be excellent to each other.
