This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Looking at the new stuff from WOTC thats come out this year.

I am starting to think that they are already soft edition changing 5e. They could keep going that route all the way to 2024 and thered be no need for a new edition because its already there in some odd way.

But this is WOTC and the gang so its probably going to be stupid somehow some way.

Failure is the only option with WOTC. Especially if they somehow succeeded. If it aint broke. Break it.

The other possibility is that at the 11th hour they will reveal the all new "We hate you 5e players" 6th edition. Rake in the free advertising as everyone screams. Wonder why they are again getting their asses kicked in sales when someone keeps 5e alive just like Paizo did.

Why do I have a passing thought that D&D will complete its transformation into a mainstream hobby not through dominating the market, but by having "woke" D&D be made mandatory for pupils in public education?

Your passing thought is as meaningful as passing gas.
