Episode 14: D&D Edition Wars Part 2, or Weeaboo Fightan Magic

In our most controversial episode to date, Ross and Darryl discuss the second half of D&D’s history, the Wizards of the Coast/Paizo era. And yes, there are arguments a plenty. However, both the host and owner of the Gamer’s Tavern manage to discuss the single most contentious point in gaming for an hour and a half without coming to blows. So that just re-iterates our point, which is edition wars are bullshit! But we hope that you enjoy our exploration of the modern history of the father of all roleplaying games on its 40th anniversary, Dungeons & Dragons!
