Having read the entire filing, I find the following stand out:
It appears that the controversies at Wizards of the Coast run deep and wide. If nothing else, it's a sad day for Dragonlance fans.

Hope you like politically corrected Dragonlance because that's what your going to get of WotC in the near future.ReplyDelete
The future of D&D will be all races are good aligned and combat will be removed in favor of serious talking to'sReplyDelete
I wonder if they'd go as far as releasing bowdlerized versions of the original novels.ReplyDelete
More likely let them just remain out of print forever like DragonQuestDelete
It’d be great if Hasbro released the Dragonlance IP to the authors, but I can’t see a corporation ever releasing an IP like Dragonlance for fear of seeing it turn profitable. Better to sit on it as a dead corpse than be made to look foolish.ReplyDelete
Why would they give away their property? At the very least they'd want some $ for itDelete
How long before the Hasbro fan-boys rush to the defense of the corporation?ReplyDelete
There are Hasbro fanboys?Delete
Good for them.ReplyDelete
There go Gully Dwarves ruining things for everyone again.ReplyDelete
I never played Magic:TG nor did I transition to 3E or 4E, so the first time I ever gave money to WoTC was for a pdf of the Rules Cyclopedia. Looks like there won't be a second time.ReplyDelete
Needless to say, if you lack a close & personal friend willing to lend you Dragonlance pdfs until they're available again, there is a "Trove" of possibilities just a Google search away...
Fuck those assholes.
