The most wonderful time of the year is once again upon us as Joe gives his GenCon roundup. The boys talk about Warmachine High Command, Robotech, D&D Next, the Pathfinder Card Game and Star Trek Assault Wing. All this and Joe tells us how he probably got Wil Wheaton sick.

D&D Next looks abysmal. It’s like they decided to throw every trope and idea against the wall to see what stuck, then decided it was all too cool to scrap so they fired the editors.

As far as I’m concerned this is the nail in the coffin for D&D/WoTC. Pathfinder has completely dominated the post 3.5/AD&D market, and if grognardian role players want to relive their halcyon days of ThAC0, all they have to do is buy Hackmaster.

My fantasy RPG gaming money is going to be spent on Pathfinder, FantasyCraft, and WFRP from now on…

Or you can just go back to ad&d 2nd Ed. There are almost 10000 supplements, and most are dirt cheap and widely available. Or you could download the entire catalog for free from any number of sites.

AD&D 2E is the right play for D20 based action.
