Three in two days!

I found this through Google+:
I have read the replies (even the other consultant’s multiple posts of the same thing, over and over) and I have to agree with the initial post. I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again: I think the edition treadmill is no longer a viable business model in the modern age. I think even WWGS figured this out with the Word of Darkness games. The “new edition every couple of years” business plan has hurt many game systems, I have no doubt. I know Champions and Tunnels and Trolls both used to be more popular, and both are now beyond six editions. Champions went from 4th to 6th in about 10 years time. I don’t even remember remember seeing 5th on the stands for long. I never really even saw most of the Tunnels and Trolls editions, ever.
So, I personally would like to Wizards take this advice and run with it. However, I know they won’t. And that will water down the D&D branding even more, until Hasbro shuts the doors…
