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.

Why is it that the current version of D&D seems to be a poison pill for these fuckers to initiate their career self-destruct?

Finally, a reason to be thankful for 5e.

It's probably RPGPundit's fault by his consulting on this edition. His influence on the current edition is why the freakshow is self-destructing!

  Given his other activities, I suspect that Pundit may have facilitated ... certain introductions ... that account for both the meteoric success of 5E and its gradual absorption by the powers of chaos and ruin. ;)

Arneson for me personally isn't on the list, because while I'm confident his design elements definitely impacted me somewhere, it's such a muddled mess of trying to define where he and Gygax matter most, it simply gets rolled together under "Gygax".
If you're interested, Peterson does a good job of separating the influences of Arneson and Gygax in Playing at the World.

I really need to finish that book, it's absolutely fascinating.

Another great source of information on Arneson's contributions is the film "The Secrets of Blackmoor," which is a fantastic watch.
