Re: D&D App?


First of all, Map, you must've needed a sandblaster!

Secondly, if any of you are interested, D&D was bought as part of TSR by Wizards of the Coast (who made their name in Magic: The Gathering) circa 15 years ago. D&D 3, 3.5, 4, and 5 have all been WotC developments.

WotC has now owned by HASBRO for almost 10 years, and although the purchase included a LOT of concessions regarding autonomy in HR and content decision, recent years have brought increasing pressure from HASBRO to produce a product to compete in the emerging head-to-head app market. Wizards has been working for a couple years now to develop a version of M:TG that could break into that market but nothing yet has made it out of beta.

VERY interesting, to me at least, that they're trying a version of D&D for this market. I have to think it'll be a reasonably stripped down version of the game, with expansion packs available for the varying directions that individual players and/or groups will want to go. The game itself has always been ideal for that kind of model, and even Gary Gygax used that model in every version he created.

I won't personally try this out, but i wish WotC and HASBRO nothing but the best going forward with it. I hope that if it succeeds in the market, they bring out DragonLance expansions. I've been hoping to see M:TG go to the worlds of DragonLance for quite a while now. It wouldn't exactly be a seamless meld, especially if they can't get Weis and/or Hickman involved, but it's definitely possible.

ETA: Dragonlance was originally a TSR product, and there were some really great DL-D&D crossover products that were very successful at the time. Therefore there would be no legal headaches involved in crossing DL and D&D. Also there have been a few very minor D&D/M:TG ... not exactly crossovers, but more like mentions, over the last 15 years.

ETA2: HASBRO also has a pretty good track record of bringing out films, i.e. Transformers and G.I. Joe. With fantasy franchises like Harry Potter, Middle-Earth, and Narnia all either played out or moving very slowly, DragonLance movies would be a great idea, and maybe even M:TG Planeswalker Stories or a D&D reboot.
Amazon gift cards make great gifts both for shoppers who are lazy and/or have a lot of gifts to buy. They're also a shrewd choice if there are individuals in your life for whom it is difficult to shop. When bought through the astore, they also help support this site, which isn't self-sufficient and doesn't hold fund-raisers or any of that other crap.

Please consider doing at least some of your holiday shopping through our astore this year.
