This thread (my first post in this forum ever, BTW) degenerated into something completely different sooner than I had anticipated. Oh well, I suppose that is the nature of things. It's not that I disapprove of the discussion about GM sadism, only that I feel such a discussion deserves its own thread to better preserve it for posterity. So here you go!
Heh. Sorry. We're an easily distracted bunch.
Being a subscriber to all things great on the Geek'n'Sundry Channel, I think exposure on Wil Wheaton's Tabletop show is a great idea. Wil Weaton is fast becoming a 'face' in the world of fanzine culture and gaming in general, and I'm sure the Dragon Age sales have gone up significantly since he posted those episodes recently. Green Ronin must be a bunch of happy chappies at present, hopefully they'll consider providing more support to their True20 system if Dragon Age works out well for them.
Wil Wheaton has already acknowledged that he prefers Indie RPGs, and he has said some good references towards Call of Cthulhu in the past. I think he would also be interested in LEGEND or RQ6 I dare say. It also could be an opportune time for Magic World to come to the fore as well.
I really think Chaosium and The Design Mechanism should watch what he's up to and consider some exposure on his program as a good business move, I think it would garner much more interest in these systems than hoping that game stores around the world will promote them, or even convention exposure. Without more exposure and net presence, BRP and BRP-related systems will probably continue to hobble two steps forward, one step back; let's hope even that continues. It breaks my heart to see such a great system delegated to minimal shelf space in the game stores, whilst everywhere else I see D&D, and all the D20 OGL products - many of them have great settings, but BRP should be their basis, not D20... exposure and promotion is everything.
Its a great suggestion smjn
