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.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

Link or STFU.

2024 is the 50th anniversary and 5e will be 10 years old. Perfect time for new corebooks to be sold.

Whether these 50th anniversary corebooks is just reprints, a cleaned up 5e or a new 6e remains to be seen. Doubtful we'll hear about an external playtest before 2023 and internal silence will be important to keep 5e selling in the meantime. No reason to announce early and create lameduck years for your sales.

I am positive you have no link, no evidence, absolutely zero behind your claim. I am positive you will never provide such a link here. And I am positive you're trying to cover for having just been caught in a blatant lie and worried you won't be able to weasel your way out of it.

Prove me wrong.

There sure could be one then. But that's not what I am responding to. I am responding to him saying, "In the same conversation...6e confirmed in the works..." Which is him fibbing for attention. That would be massive news, plastered all over the place, if they confirmed in a public video that they are working on 6e. They didn't though. And I want to watch GeekyBugle squirm about being caught in that fib and trying to weasel out of it. I expect his primary method of trying to weasel out of it is to go on the offense, attacking me personally and not providing a link to anything. Because if the attention is on me, it's not on him supporting his claim.

I hope you and Geeky have great fun in your quest for thread dominance.

Please make sure to provide LOLZ and perhaps even battle by posting dank and spicy memes.

Fight!

And look how convenient it is that Mike Mearls has stepped down to take a new "mystery" position.

There is a small thread about it:

Mearls (officially) out as D&D manager. Ray Winninger is in.

The title of that thread should probably be adjusted to add that part.

Although no one seems quite sure what he's doing beyond 'working on the tabletop side of D&D again,' so it's not impossible that he's working on the early development of 6th Edition.

I am praying that this is true but not perhaps for the same reason that others might.

As they are working to sanitize the game, I am ready to make a clean break.  A new edition would clearly demarcate my line of no more purchases.  Additionally, I believe this will be their new (4th edition "moment") where they alienate the actual buyers.  At that point they might finally "get woke" to what paying fans want.

My friend believes the pendulum will swing back.

For my part, I have been reading various forums and see people who are pushing to make orcs and drow "slightly misunderstood" are also the same people that talk about pirating or sharing codes for online services.  Their numbers do not equate to implied purchasing power as I hope WOTC will find out.

Sorry for the tangent.

On a slightly related note, Ryo Mizuno, author of the manga/anime Record of the Lodoss War, made a tweet expressing concern, based on the episode of Community that was recently memory holed, that the entire concept of dark elves might soon be considered racist resulting in his old manga getting the same treatment. This, of course, is the logical conclusion of the entire "evil races" line of thinking we are seeing today.

Hold onto your old books, friends.  It will get worse before better.

It's sad.  Gygax made some cool stuff.  The terminally sensitive will break all of our toys if allowed.  What's next?
