- Mar 1, 2005No, Jim, that is what is happening in RPGs.
Is it happening in the literature also? Maybe there is a similar division
of the market. I am so behind in my reading that I can't really make any
observations about the current state of the genre. There is something
funny going on, though, with all the witchy TV shows and even cartoons.
That kind of spume irks me more than the LOTR movies do... at least the
movies were undertaken as a great and serious work. The sitcoms and WINXes
and their like are just... just... words fail me.
I would be glad to share my Welsh cakes, if I ever get them made. Course,
that shows that I am not really Welsh. They are like hobbits over
mushrooms with those things.
