    The author list for the books been revelied.

    To note that Daniel guy is the one who wanted Oriential Adventures de-listed for being offensive. Surprised he took a job with wotc when last I heard he was still complaning that all wotc did was put a desclaimer up and not remove the book.

    Along with other authors just being celeberty gamers/youtubers.

    One of the adventures they really did wheel chai accesible dungeons.

    I look forward to the reviews.

    Most woke activists are narcissists playing at being a hero when they are just an annoying asshole surrounded enablers.

    Oriental is not a racist work, fuck most of the businesses the still use the term are Asian! The other day I had Oriental Grilled chicken, their name for it, not my. Alot of the rub and tugs where I work call themselves Oriental Spas.

    The woke are stupid.

    I also find it weird that the after complaining that wotc for still selling Oriental Adventures on dmsguild he accepted a job with wotc while Oriental Adventures is still available.

    Either he got over it or money proves him to be a hypocrite. Ah well third party still be a thing and at least maybe the new Dragonlance book will be a decent nostalgia trip.

    Thought occurs about the new Dragonlance novels comming out. I don't think this means they'll release Dragonlance for 5e.

    It could just be that they're committing to their legal requirements to end the lawsuit. Suppose we'll see during the lead up to the release how wotc acts.

    We've reached a point where I don't know if that's good or bad anymore. Right now I've given up on 5e and probably the best thing that could happen is somehow D&D escaping the big industry corporations like Hasbro and being in the hands of a smallish independent company that could truly focus on what is important. Could have happened after the 4e disaster, but it's highly unlikely at this point, if not impossible.

    Indies taking the crown is impossible and for good reasons . I wanted to play shadow of the demon lord, but online on fantasy grounds , there was some rumor it was ported. Went to the sotdl discord, no one knows nor have any idea, no answers from any officials. Went to FG discord, much faster answer there ,they dont even know if someone working on it, nor if anyone working on anything by the way ...
    While 5E gets ton of adventures and third party support , its extremely easy to find people to play with , as the DM you are the cute girl on tinder.

    This day marks the end of my 4 year and 3 month long campaign in D&D 5e.

    So long 5th edition, I can finally retire as a DM (at least for a while). My next campaign will probably be something in Cyberpunk RED, Star Wars d20 (which I love & hate, but my players seem to enjoy it), more 5th edition but with a lot more OSR influences or simply some OSR game. Either way, I can finally have peace for at least a month.

    Of course a lich villain would try to make his dungeon accessible for disabled people/sarcasm

    Now seriously. It makes me sad. No official adventure for other realms of dread except Ravenloft, no official adventure in Dark Sun...

    D&D is a very high magical setting. Is probably cheaper to just pay a caster to fix your body than to make a wheelchair.

    That would require naming a good D&D edition released in the last 20 years.

    Well if you want actual good D&D adventures that's based on the older settings but in 5E you could always check out the goodman game Original Adventures Reincarnated series

    Temple of Elemental Evil for 5e is supposed to be the next but honestly if your playing the original adventures might as well try to find a group for B/X or 1e and get original pdfs for cheaper unless you find the expanded parts really valuable.

    Kinda surprised they haven't done anything with the second edition era adventures yet.

    It takes a lot of effort to get rid of all the problematic elements and add oppressed black tranny characters to the story.

    As someone who likes the d20 system and Star Wars, I can clearly say Star Wars d20 is an utter mess. Saga Edition however is an excellent system with a few issues (don't allow Skill Focus: Use the Force, make sure non-Jedi characters have access to non-core options).

    They don't make any sort of changes to remove problematic material though. Each of the original adventure reincarnated books even include a full reprint of the original adventure as published.

    So I really do wonder why they haven't done a single 2E adventure yet when they did Expedition to the Barrier Peaks and now ToEE.

    Apprently adventures arent profitable to them they are making more money with campaign books thats why you dont see any of them . Also its worth reading magazines too, compare Dungeon's magazine of today , issues like 37, 70 112, or 120 , their adventure are now short uninspiring with big pictures filling the pages.You wont find the quality of the 2e era anymore.
