Re: [Living_Greyhawk] Re: FAQ and 'competing' campaigns
The dream of proper errata is dead. With several rounds of staff cuts
there just isn't the bodies necessary to pump out new product and
errata the old in the traditional sense at the same time. That is why
there has not been new "old school" errata since the release of Sword
It was a WotC choice to make Sage Advice essentially clarifications,
rule changes and errata and it was choice that Skip told me he was not
thrilled with either. So we can pine for a mythical age were errata
was regularly forthcoming from TSR/WotC or we can deal with the
reality of the D&D FAQ. Personally, my take on 3.5 and the D&D FAQ...
it will reduce the size of it for awhile and then slowly but surely as
we road test the new version it will climb back up in page count...
Unless Skip is replaced as the Sage you will see his columns
translated wholesale into the D&D FAQ. Even if he is replaced, then it
will be someone else who changes the rules by themselves...
Personally, most of what Skip writes is fine with me. Whether I agree
or disagree with his choices, I am just happy to have a single
document to point to for rules clarifications and changes.

Yes, but most campaigns aren't making LARGE FAQ documents, where OP
is doing so. A campaign FAQ is one thing, a 'D&D core rules' FAQ is
My *only* beef with the FAQ is that WotC is not doing proper errata
and instead relying on Skip's column to address problems that exist
in the core rule books. Hopefully revised will be a better errata
