For the couple of you that don't normally read ENWorld's news, yet are interested D&D

(1/3) > >>

blakkie:
A rumour from Eric Noah on Thursday the 3rd has D&D 4e already being worked on and that it continues heading in the direction 3.5 did, more mini-centric.  Because Magic cards and minis are the only thing making WotC money.  Included in the rumour is WotC selling off all RPG products!

EDIT: Note that it has sort of unoffically and anonomously been called way of the mark, for whatever that is worth, and generally called into disrepute. Such is the way of rumours.  I personally can't see how they could at this point sell off D&D RPG and still keep the minis going, or even find a buyer for it that would pony up the cash.  Not even licensing the RPG out, like Warhammer does with WH FRGP to GR, seems feasible....yet.

For those interested, a whole run-through of the events, and both the original announcement, my prediction of its falsehood, and my subsequent vindication when Noah recanted, are posted on my Blog entry for yesterday (aug 4).

You are unfamiliar with RPGPundit yes / no? :heh: :mischief:

Harsh? How so?
Eric Noah DID publically recant, taking back his earlier wild claims about 4e D&D, and repudiating the validity of his earlier "source": He even went so far as to promise never to do it again ("I'm out of the 4e rumour business for good"; to paraphrase).

So I don't really see how I'm being harsh by simply summarizing things that actually happened? Or do you mean that you think I'm harsh in my assessment of the kind of people that jump like lemmings aboard the bandwagon of the wildest possible speculations of 4e rumours just for the cheap thrill of panicking over nothing or to already put down a game they hate? ("OMG I heard a rumour that 4e will be coming out next tuesday/all the character classes will be sold seperately/You'll have to buy M:TG cards for the spells/its being written by a tranvestite monkey circus clown/ See? This sourceless mindless rumour about 4e obviously PROVES that D&D 3.5 is the suxxors!!!1!!")
