No, I’m not doing some conversion of Dark Souls. Besides, I’d use either an OSR system or an entirely different one. But rather, I needed time away from D&D, sad as that may be. It helped a fair bit. Plus, the recent announcement made me realize that it’s probably up to fans like me to keep classic settings alive. Granted, I’ve been doing that with the my slowly updated takes on various monsters from Planescape and Spelljammer. Plus, I plan on both porting classic ideas while making some new ones… Sub-Classes, Races, Planar mechanics (refit to make sense within 5E), perhaps even my own take on Spelljammers. I don’t know. I don’t want to get too ambitious, I’ve self-destructed from such things before.
And while I don’t bother buying anymore WotC products (and have admittedly sold most of my books), I’ll stick around. In time, I’ll try to balance another system. I’ve been shopping around for whichever feels right. A generic system like the current edition of Savage Worlds might be the way to go, I won’t lie.
As always, thanks for sticking around. And don’t worry, I’m not going hollow.
