It looks like as they are getting closer to Game Day, content activity is starting to pick up.

I agree that the site is hard to look at. Tonight, I actually stopped to try and figure out why I have such a hard time reading things there, even when the story is posted in black text on a white background. It looks like for their articles, the first font specified is ariel, compared to what I think is verdana here, and on top of it, the leading/line-height is a lot shorter there than here. Less white space between the lines of text makes for a harder, unfriendly read.

I want to give what they are posting a chance, but the clutter level means that when I am at anything but my most alert, I just skim the text and look at the pictures.

Then their plan is working.


LOL

Yeah, could be.


And there it is. ENWorld confirmed today that Wizards is going to be posting excerpts from the core books every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday until launch day. Also:

Friday will look inside the DMG regarding customizing monsters—plus a new monster from the Monster Manual.

As for the "magazines," I could swear somewhere that they said they would have them on track by October (!) but now I can't seem to find that quote and can't guarantee I didn't just misread something. It would make sense though, because it looks like the bulk of the new books will be out by then.

I still miss seeing those magazines a lot. Just a big empty space on the magazine racks.


It's a mess plain and simple ,i stop login on because there nothing there whort seeing.

Wizards of the Coast can barely keep their website and forums from crashing on a daily basis, did anyone really believe DDI was going to be this D&D break through Wizards is hoping for? They don't have the IT info structure, they never have, and I doubt they ever will.

To be fair, I think the WotC website used to be good. The columns and features on the old WotC website were what got me into D&D, and they're still there in the archives, along with the monthly adventures, many of which were amusing if not useful. "Random Encounters" and "Vicious Venues" were gold, and I always enjoyed the Map-a-Week. But I stopped when they started become predominantly product promotions, and old, generic features were dropped in favor of world-specific ones and product tie-ins.

Still, I don't think it's that WotC couldn't produce the content if they wanted to, I think it's that marketing interests have limited the scope of the site, and the type of content that reaches it. I also think that there's noting particularly wrong with the content, although it may be sparse (I have yet to investigate Dungeon), but that some types of content are best suited for the internet, and some types of content I want to be holding a physical copy of.

Agreed - they had some good columns on the site, worth checking daily. Loved "Save My Game" even if it wasn't always *that* useful :)

Paizo now.. daily.. hourly... hides

I really miss the magazines :(


I was just reading KQ and although it is a good magazine, there is nothing like having a full colour magazine delivered each month and to read through it...pity I could only enjoy Dragon for three years.
Soon it will be the first year without, any memorial festivities planned?
