3.5 DMG released Marking the End of the 3.5 Core Wave

For the past 3 weeks WotC has been releasing the core books for the 3.5 edition of Dungeons & Dragons through DnDclassics and OBS. This today marks the release of the final book of the 3.5 Core books with the Dungeon Master's Guide.

What comes next is anyone's guess, but I have a feeling this will go one of a few ways:

  • Wizards will follow up with the secondary core set of 3.5 and move on from there with the various core setting books for the 3.5 edition (Forgotten Realms, Eberron, ETC).
  • Wizards will finally release the d20 Modern books to wide release through OBS and may even include some of those long sought after "proofs" that never made it to the public (I'm looking at you d20 Supers!)
  • Finally, what I think is most likely, is that Wizards will move on to a slow release of another edition of the game ... my bet would be 2e.
Wizards seems committed to correcting the mistakes of its past and fully embracing the online media culture of the 21st century in such a way that seems almost natural and not as negative to its pre-existing fan base (I'm looking at you 4e spot light videos!)

  1. Now, now, now, the 4E spot light videos weren't terrible. First, it gave us ample warning of what kind of game 4E would be, and it helped me adjust my expectations accordingly. Before hand, I was SUPER excited about 4th, the videos made me check my assumptions. Secondly, it reminded people that gnomes are actually pretty awesome.
