This story might have something to do with it.

While that’s a truly tragic story, I really don’t think it is responsible for all of the problems with the DDI.

This story might have something to do with it. Hard to get your projects completed on time in such situations, I would imagine.

Yeah, between the blogs, message boards, et al, I see no need to pay for “online content” when there’s literally decades of content already out there.

But like so many, I have minimal interest in 4E, so it’s not much of an issue. Even so, if they had this for 3E (which I did play some of) I still wouldn’t have paid out for it. Online gaming content is like online pornography – if you aren’t savvy enough to find it for free, that’s your own dang fault.

I'm pretty sure I won't buy forking over my hard earned money anytime soon. There are some good, new gaming mags I want to subscribe to and I think supporting the little publishers trying to fill the void left my Dragon & Dungeon magazine is money well spent.


D&D Insider: Son of Gleemax, Grandson of MasterTools

I'll never pay them for the software or online access. Their debacle with MasterTools / eTools in 2001 ruined any chance they had, in my mind, of developing software worth paying for. My new mantra is going to be something like: D&D is dead; long live D&D. Basically, IMHO, i think the blogging community and the RPG community at large can do a better job at keeping the _spirit_ of a game like D&D alive – and healthy. WotC's recent attempts to monetize everything just screams "PROFFITZ!". I dunno, just my 2¢
