When I heard that TSR was back I was willing to hold my judgement but was a little concerned that it was just a bunch of people walking in to the bar to talk about the Glory days. I was also willing to point out that the Failed kickstarter was not a product of TSR and will not be a product of TSR that is now in the hands of Troll Lord Games so we should not be judging them on that.
I wanted to know more about about Giant land but they aren’t really saying much about it. watch might not be the best idea because of how the kickstarter went, they need to be talking about everything they can, plus they are a new business they should be getting the word out about their products.
But after watching the interview all bets are off, and it would seem that yes 100% that TSR is back is nothing more than old people looking for stories of Yesterdays Glory. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xd5WHCeLTIo&t=3735s
Now I have never heard of this YouTube show, so I am not 100% that there whole shtick is not just click bait, but starting your show with if you are offended it sucks to be is a good way to let most people know that they don’t need to waste time watching your show, plus the Host really had no idea what he was talking about.
Now let’s get to the guest. I find it interesting that Ernie says his job is to stop his team from saying stupid stuff, but who is going to stop him from saying stupid stuff. like about how gaming was better when there were no women at the gaming table.
Also while we are on the Subject Gender Identity is not something to laugh about, there are lots of Trans people and people that are Gender Fluid that are in the gaming community, and it really is a better place because of it.
Look I am not saying that we can’t enjoy old things, I love 1e Dungeons and Dragons, and I am not saying that we all need to be blinded by the Idea that the world is much better than it use to be, it is but there is still a lot of work to be done and TSR being a rally point for old angry white guys proves that.
I hope until next time some of you keep gaming, if you are questioning if it is worth it, I feel you.
