As I engaged in my usual lunchhour perusal of my favourite RPG-related websites today, it occurred to me that it has been weeks since I dropped in on the Wizards of the Coast webpage. This used to be a daily requirement, even as recently as last fall. The braintrust at WotC has been working overtime trying to come up with new ways to lose me as a customer. At one time, I religiously purchased everything they produced for D&D 3.5, D&D Minis, Star Wars Saga Ed., Star Wars Minis, d20 Modern and Axis&Allies Minis. Now 3.5 and d20 Modern are dead and buried, while the quality of their D&D and SW miniatures lines has declined precipitously. So, I wait for the next SW Saga book, expected next month and the next A&A minis release, expected sometime before the end of the Mayan calendar, while the rest of WotC's production moves along completely beneath my notice. I guess I'm no longer part of their demographic, which apparently consists of anyone who will swallow whatever crap they slap their logo on. C'est la vie!
