our guess about WOTC’s upcoming support of older editions
Don’t get too excited about WOTC’s support of older D&D versions, which they sorta-kinda announced at Gen Con. Rory put the pieces together:
James Wyatt slipped and mentioned that they were planning to sell a one-year subscription to the “Eberron Bookshelf” – a set of Eberron 3.5 books – for $10
When asked if they would support older editions, they said that they had something in the works. Mike Mearls then went on to talk about how Second Edition had a lot of great setting stuff which could be used by 4e players.
Our guess is that that’s how older-edition support will be done – subscriptions will be sold for Al-Qadim bookshelves, Dragonlance bookshelves, etc. If that’s true, it’s not quite as exciting as it could be.
