One of the nice things about writing a blog that no one reads is that I am able to go on rants occasionally. This time, however, I need not express my rantmania, as Monte Cook calmly expressed what has bothered me for a while.

Monte Cook (if you don’t know who Monte Cook is, you are reading the wrong blog) expressed this in a recent interview and it reminded me why I bear a grudge against Hasbro/WOC. I even consider myself a D&D fan-boy (and am looking forward to 5e) but what they did in introducing 4e; that is to say the manner in which they behaved towards their then-current fan-base was reprehensible.

I blame Internet cranks for that mentality, and I blame game company spokesmen who have encouraged it in the belief that it would help them sell games. It’s the very people who must now solve the problem of a very fractured marketplace who fractured it in the first place.”

Yeah, I can hold a good grudge.
