  2. Although I seem to be in a distinct minority among OSR bloggers, I’m definitely looking forward to this.

    They seem to be *saying* all the right things, and so I call myself cautiously optimistic. I reserve judgement until I actually have something to evaluate, however.

    In particular, I’m curious as to how, exactly, they will attempt to fulfill the promise of having rules-heavy and rules-light players playing the same game at the same table at the same time. If they’ve managed some sort of elegant mechanical trick to make this work, no one will be more pleased (and surprised) than I.

    I’m guessing that whoever holds the checkbook has determined that the right things must be said, and doesn’t actually care about the right game being designed — so 5e is as much of a crapshoot as 4e was.
