Seeing this brings me a lot of joy. TSR coming back makes me very happy. I wish them nothing but good fortune in the products they create.

What comes of this has me very interested.

The usual dickholes on Reddit were calling it a cash grab. Of course they know absolutely nothing. These guys are more TSR than TSR was when it sold.

Jim Ward is a great writer and DM, and I have at least half a dozen tattoos that I would like to get of Elmore’s art.

Giantlands looks good so far. I am interested to see what they do.

EDIT: Five minutes of research would have allowed me to make a much more informed opinion. I saw Jim and Larry’s names associated and automatically attributed recent works to this project. But this thing is crazy. Their next big event listed on their website is GaryCon 2020. They are hoping to launch a theme park 9 months from now, and we should have had the box set a year ago.

Still interested to see what happens, but for very different reasons.

Wasn't TSR already back? They published 5 issues of Gygax magazine, almost a decade ago. With two of Gygax's sons and Tim Kask.

So is the youtube video guy.

At 6:00 in
"I think D&D would have gone down a decidedly different path had Hasbro not purchased Wizards of the Coast..."

Delusional.

WOTC was already left wing, and they hired two proto-woke gamers; Jonathan tweet and Monte Cook to design 3e.

Critical Theory based "inclusive" politics were actively being injected in 3e D&D before "going woke" really took off.

This can be proven from articles and post where Tweet and Cook talk about the creation of 3e.

TSR Games is Back
The studio behind the original Dungeons & Dragons has returned to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, under the guidance of Gary Gygax Jr. with the help of Wonderfilled, Inc.

TSR Games is BackLake Geneva, WI, June 15, 2021 --(PR.com)-- Tactical Studies Rules (TSR) was founded in 1973 by E. Gary Gygax and Don Kaye. Originally formed in 2020, TSR Games is officially back and under the leadership of E. Gary Gygax Jr.

“I am thrilled to be part of this next generation of gaming and hope that you all find it cut the same cloth as all my old TSR experiences as we forge a new TSR Games,” said Gygax, continuing, “Thanks to the vision of our CEO Justin LaNasa, and the help of Wonderfilled, we’re bringing TSR back home to Lake Geneva. It really means so much to me.”

TSR was behind the original Dungeons & Dragons first released in 1974, now a worldwide phenomenon owned by Hasbro on its fifth and most popular edition yet. The team includes Justin LaNasa (CEO), Ernest G. Gygax Jr (EVP), Jeff R. Leason (COO, and Stephen E. Dinehart (CCO). LaNasa is a visionary and entrepreneur that has set out to reunite brands like TSR with the original talent behind them.

“It’s with great pride that we’ve managed to secure the TSR brand, born here originally in 1973 and brought back to the people who created this new form of game that changed the world,” said LaNasa.

In addition to the classic lines of products at TSR Museum and Dungeon Hobby Shop, TSR Games is working to bring a new generation of role-playing games and more to players worldwide. “Now more than ever, the world needs TSR,” said game designer Jeff R. Leason. “We’re happy to be bringing it back for experienced and new players alike.”

Sounds good right!

It'll be great baby! TSR is back motherfuckers!

Right!?

Right?

Yeah. Let me know when the new-new TSR puts out some product. Until then, it's hype.
The notion of an exclusionary and hostile RPG community is a fever dream of zealots who view all social dynamics through a narrow keyhole of structural oppression.

After hearing the podcast I must say it's a hardpass for me.

Greetings!

I listened to the podcast. The "game designer" sounds like he is a total cuck.

What the hell does YOUR PERSONAL racial/ethnic composition--or your particular attitudes concerning current-day, woke-racist fucking ideology have anything to do with mythical races and creatures in a fantasy game?

Such a woke fucking retard. Yeah, we need more racist politics and "consciousness" poured into the game.

What a jackass. Hard fucking pass indeed. "GiantLands" already sounds like an absolute wokefest cesspool.

Semper Fidelis,

And at last, each will own the privilege of looking inside himself  to discover what truly resides there. Comfort is an illusion. A false security bred from familiar things and familiar ways. It narrows the mind. Weakens the body. And robs the soul of spirit and determination. Comfort is neither welcome nor tolerated here."

The only thing that 3e did was started using the word “she” instead of “him” in it’s texts. It was a way to try break the gender divide and attract more females into the game. It bugged me when they did that switch. From a marketing point, they wanted a new audience instead of old aging fat men to play the game. There was not too much else they changed in my honest opinion that would invoke SJW.

I personally love the options in 3.5 but after running The Shackled City over 3 years, 3.5 was needless in the amount of time with all the rule lawyering.

This time around, we are going back to B/X with Old School Essentials and possibly throwing some of the advance rules of 1e when they release it.

It sucks it has to be this way, but it's basically impossible to have any confidence in any person or product that won't at bare minimum pledge to not cave to the outrage mob.

First article against chainmail bikini I ever read was on a very old Dragon (Or was it Dungeon?) magazine. I mean way back when the satanic panic was a thing, the proto SJWs were already on the inside.
