Wizards of the coast has announced their launch into creating the next version of Dungeons and Dragons and astonishingly they are asking for their player base to help mold the rules of the upcoming edition.
I have mixed feelings about this concept. My first instinct is to applaud WotC for taking the time to listein but at the same time, I fear that taking advice from a player base that has so many differant types of players will only land WotC in trouble with their new edition.
The fact is that if a group playing Dungeons and Dragons dosnt like a certain rule, they simply change it. I had my beef with Edition 4 like most D&D players but I also know that there is some advice better left unasked for. How long before “The Book of Erotic Fantasy” becomes canon?
If nothing else I am genuinely excited that WotC might find some happy middle ground between Editions 3.5 and 4.0 or if they can manage to spark some original concepts. I’ll certainly be keeping an eye on them.
