Wizards of the Coast embraces their heritage
Many product announcements came out of last week's GAMA Trade Show. The ones that I'm most excited about were from, surprisingly, Wizards of the Coast. Based on some of their products announced for this year I think they're starting to understand the hook of nostalgia and the surging OSR movement.
September sees the release of another D&D 4th ed. starter set, but this one looks like a clone of the iconic '80s "Red Box" Basic Set. If this turns out the way I imagine, I'm all over it.
Castle Ravenloft, a co-op adventure board game, is out for Gen Con. They should have done this long ago.
Gamma World returns in a series of books using the 4e rules. I didn't think I would see that again.
