I'm linking this link thirdhand, because I can. Dr. Rotwang has a post entitled D&D Is Dead. And honestly, I couldn't agree more.
As a product, it's nothing.
As a hobby, it's still pretty huge.
This leads me to another point: it's really boring and really tiring to hear people complaining on OSR blogs. I love the energy, I love the enthusiasm, and I understand that sometimes we all get a little grumpy when people are being idiots about our favorite hobby, but the reason this blog exists (and probably the reason a lot of other blogs exist as well) is that we just can't contain the sometimes-manic outpouring of energy and enthusiasm we all have for our favorite products.
Just a quickie for today. My writing juices are dry these days.
