A couple bits of news from Wizards of the Coast have recently come to our attention (thanks Matt). First up is the elimination of Rich Baker’s position as Senior Game Designer about a month ago. We certainly wish him good luck, though with all those years in the industry, I’m sure he won’t need it.
Second is their announcement of development of what certainly sounds like D&D 5.0. As much as we’ve criticized elements of Fourth Edition, hopefully constructively, I’m certain we’ll give the next version a try. We were, I think, unanimously introduced to the hobby through D&D, and we’re not giving up on it yet.
Have you heard any news around the RPG water cooler about the “next iteration” of D&D? Are you already looking to see how much you can sell your 4E books for on eBay? Is news like this the reason you’re glad you never stopped playing AD&D 2nd Edition? Let us know in the Comments!
