D&D is Dead. D&D remains dead. And we have killed it. How shall we comfort ourselves; the murderers of all murderers?

D&D 5th edition coming. I wish I could say "good, 4th edition was an incoherent pile of crap with hundreds of pages of errata", but it sounds like instead of making an improved version of 4th edition that deals with some of the serious issues, they're going to treat it as a failed experiment and go back to the 3rd edition bloodline.

I guess GURPS is back to being the RPG of choice for the discerning gamer.

Holy shit do I want to play D&D (or alternatively a non-awful pen and paper game) with like Robin Williams, Vin Deisel and co.

Here, "reportedly" means "frequently talks about it on his blog and is an open fan of the game".

Pathfinder is 3.5 only with less CASTER EDITION and more cheesecake Wayne Reynolds art. I'm ok with this.

Like, I would rather play any non-d20 game than a d20 one, but getting fan involvement in your new edition seems like a really good idea.

Of course, there's the whole issue where customers often aren't actually right (random example off the top of my head: MLP episode "Suited for Success") but feedback is definitely something you want in the internet age when random grognards can interact with game designers on the other side of the globe. I'm pretty sure that the whole PTR system WoW uses has had a lot of success.

Agreed, but it's not like they're going to put every rule to a vote

It's going to be feedback for the design process, not the design process itself

I want to play and/or run WoD but nobody locally does and online RPGs are too much effort.
