At last, something to write about.
I'm three weeks late to finding this post - but I suggest you read it, and not just because there's some back-handed praise for Tao of D&D.
There's quite a bit that I strongly disagree with. Games are more than "just games." Things may be what they are, but understanding what a thing "is" means breaking it down and examining it. My friends are particular about what we do. Hitting things again and again with a sword is fun. I have no intention of ever playing 5th edition. Random charts rule. Shocking grasp produces magic, not electricity. I do not enjoy other people's blogs immensely.
Apart from that, I wanted to be sure I linked the post somewhere on my blog, as I feel the author's ideas could lead to some meaningful posts in the future.
