Can't sleep. Preoccupied with stuff.

Content note: Swearing, and way too much talk about miniatures, sexism, and messed-up unethical companies.

Can't write, can't get to sleep. Gonna ramble on Dreamwidth instead.

Here's the essay on Wizards of the Coast's site that led me to this conclusion. It's part of a long series of things just like it. In a nutshell, WotC's "D&D Next" thing where they're designing 5e has consisted of ... not designing 5e. Instead, they keep posting rambling things about game design and then asking people poll questions. When they do talk about what the game will be like, they say things like "modular" and how it'll basically be all things to all people.

This leads me to one of two conclusions.
  1. They have no freaking clue what they're doing and have given up trying to create their own things.

  2. They know exactly what they want to do for 5e and are giving players the illusion of choice.
Either one is a Very Bad Sign.
