Reading the Posts of the 4th Edition Group over at Various RPG Groups (Including Facebook adn the Wizbro Forums), a LOT of them are along the lines of (and these are direct qoutes).

Quote :
I just started playing with my 4 year old Son this week
Quote :
I gm, my wife plays a mage, my 10 year old son plays a warlock rogue, and my 4 year old daughter plays a cleric.
Quote :
My 7 yr-old son and 9 yr-old daughter have played
Those are but three . . . .

The message there to me is that they have DUMBED DOWN the fucking rules a Kindergardener can play them!

I have spent a considerable amount of time defending my hobbies and passions - people taking the piss, saying "its for kids" I FINALLY after umpteen years get the respect for the hobby it deserves when bloody WankBro make 4th Edition (not) DnD so damn simple and childish little kids can play it!

It might be a Game/Hobby that appeals to all age-groups, but its NOT a Kiddyfied Family Hobby!

This sort of "Teach my 5 year old to play (not) DnD" is going to be damaging to the hobby for us older gamers - just wait and see.

Thanks a lot you bunch of fucking WANKERS!

Just wait till those ugly brats are pitted up against a 33rd level barbed devil ass-rapist,that's a new class in 4th edition,ya know ass-rapist?

It's what happens when priests of tyr start molesting alter boys and get sent to hell for it after they die.Sorta like the anti-paladin,but gayer.

Why shoulnt it piss you off. I think that it should. Those guys, the 4e-ers love to tell us and everybody else how simplistic and stupid and "retarded" the Old School is...and they are playing a game with the intellectual equivilance of Candyland!

yeah, rage on, my friend, rage on.

Thanks Mr R. - you're a gent.

Candyland - LoL!

Its the Hasbro marketing coming through - make it accessible to kids and the parents will pay through the nose for it - I hate them!

I want them to "dumb-down" the names so that it is family friendly.

Barbed Devil > Pokey Scowlface
Malconthet > Naughty Monster Queen
Gelugon > Frosted Spear Mantis Man
Motherfucking Traitor > Bruce Cordell
