I've been playing D&D since '83 (Moldvay Basic), but drifted away in the mid-nineties until 3E brought me back. I enjoyed 4E until WotC drove it into a ditch, while 5E was a non-starter due to the lack of a complete, non-proprietary digital version. I have long enjoyed Paizo's adventures and settings, but the bloat and complexity of the Pathfinder RPG have reached farcical proportions.

“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.”
― Carl Sagan
"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'”
― Isaac Asimov
