Dwarves Hold A Grudge...
Monday August 18th, 2014
...what about you two. Shit! I made the "Fox News" and "Roll for Intelligence" comments back in March of 2012...and in the end it had nothing to do with your podcast or you two guys. I was just pissed off about that AncientGamer jerk (that nobody...and I mean nobody...cared for) and how he was invited to be a host on your show. This guy would literally threaten people with physical violence on forums...and I mean all forums he had an alias on. I even went out of my way to send a lengthy apology to Vince and expressed what I was so upset about during that thread. I even went back to that thread and tried to wipe out all of the angry things I posted. You guys would publicly make comments in the mood of "take it or leave it" when people would comment about this guy coming on your show. In the end, you guys had the same issues with him and dumped him like a bag of dirt...of course you labeled it as "creative differences" or that he "went to pursue other interests", but for those of us that knew the guy...we knew what it really was.
My apology appears to be an epic failure. No worries. I will still listen to the show because it is just a good show. OK...rant done. Onto the latest show, Volume 3 Special Insert 10 – Dungeons and Dragons Basic (5b). I don't normally review the podcasts I listen to, but I did listen to it on my walk this morning. First, it wasn't worth the effort to review the 5th edition of Dungeons & Dragons. Nick really tried to keep his "I like AD&D" opinions down to a minimum, but his passion for that game really leaked out throughout the episode. He tried to give some good, but the bad was winning. As I have been stating lately, I agree with many of Nick's comments...but that is because 5th edition is a different game from 1st edition...or any other TSR D&D for that matter. Vince did a really good job at being neutral during the show, but I think this is why...
Vince has played newer editions of the game, where Nick has not. Now let's compare this to gas prices for a minute. Gas would cost 1$ per gallon. Then one day it is up to 2$ per gallon. Before you know it, you are paying 3$ per gallon. Then one day, it drops to 2$ per gallon and people shout hooray! They already forgot it was just 1$ a gallon not too long ago, but the psychological part is that they were still focused on the 3$ price tag. This is the same with 5th edition. If you played 3rd, and then 4th, you would feel that 5th is a way simpler game because you were slowly going from edition to edition...increasing the difficulty of play as you went along. You already forgot what TSR D&D's were like. When you only have experience with the TSR D&D's...and you go straight to 5th edition...it feels like it is a more difficult game.
Overall, you guys gave it a shot and you listened to the couple of fans who wanted you to talk about it. Too bad you didn't listen to the fans about AncientGamer way back when (shit...I thought I was done with the rant). I am ready for you all to get back to AD&D and hit up more of that giant series modules. Keep it "original". Keep it "old-school".
