Ascendency of the Last

Lisa, that our High Priestess had high hopes for her second effort, has been let down.

It appears all Drow are Evil with no hope of redemption. The Dark Maiden is dead in 4th Edition if the current reviews are acurate.

Fuck. Holy fucking shit! (Said the motorcyclist and sweared heavily)

Those are no longer the Realms I have beloved.

[color=darkred:3afwiz9i]But there is good news!: Proof that the drizzit really [i:3afwiz9i]is[/i:3afwiz9i] evil and is merely trying to infiltrate the goodly races. (no wonder he supposedly has the secret favor of Lolth)[/color:3afwiz9i]

I've removed the links to WotC from the links section. If they don't want anything anymore to do with Eilistraee I don't want anything anymore to do with them.

And I'm strongly considering banning all use of 4E from this site. And I encourage everyone to spread the word: if this is how they're treating their fans just imagine how they treat everyone else. Don't buy into this crap; from now on WotC is blacklisted for me and I'm boycotting all of their products (for whatever good that'll do).

Either way, seems 4E has absolutely nothing to do with Eilistraee, and since we're a site dedicated to Eilistraee we have absolutely nothing to do with 4E. The most benign view is that 4E has the same relevance to us as a game of polo. We don't use the rules of polo in our roleplaying, and neither do we use the rules of 4E.

I wish I had more time to actually set up that wiki or such... seems we really do need to save Eilistraee now.

that is just...fucked...up...

O_o

I'm not sure what to think now. I love FR...but...this...doesn't seem to really be FR anymore, does it? They've just gone too far now...

and if the outcry here is any indication of what the outcry will be elsewhere...yeah, I can imagine a revival. We'll see...

WotC is counting on the silent majority. Something that is hard to measure and new WOW type players to fill in the ranks of those that depart.

It will be months to go to see how well their business plan works.

...

I don't know... what to say.

I had hoped this wouldn't happen.

But yeah, thats it. 4E is not for me. I'm with Shir'le.
Those are not the Realms I have come to care about.

And to add insult to injury, Qilue is gone too. Even her soul is destroyed.

I... am at a lack of words.

The ending of the novel is so dismal... I can't even begin to describe it...

I feel sorry for Lisa.

When i read those words last night it was like my world had been turned upside down.i was speechless yet i wanted to scream,curse,shout,destroy things,Renounce d&d,and then burn all my books and then curl up in to a ball and weep. by this time i had to go to bed(one of the worst things to happan during the finles)as i lay in my bed tosseing and turning i could only think of those dredful words that i read not too long ago.so i got up around midnight and loged on to the internet to get more info and opiunes during the course of wich i found that many other players are upset with this and other changes that WOTC are makeing to ourbeloved game.as i drifteted to sleep i made up my mind that this would not effect me at all. from what i saw on other sights peapole hate this devlpment as much as we do. i'v decided to keep playing D&D but i will not buy any 4e materiles in addition i have decied to startup a letter capaign to "officile" bring her back and i hope that all of you who feel as strongly about this as i do will help me.perhapes with enough presser and time they will see the err of there ways and bring her back just like they did with bane(theyll probobley bring her back after there profits drop lower then they already are).i also decided not to follow the books or other materle word for word.as long as we her faithful keep her in our hearts and continue to love and support her she will continue to live forever. in short i will cointine loging on and posting as well as keeping her my patron deity in all D&D games that i play. for as long as i draw breath and this site still stands she will live. now come take my hand and let us sing and let us dance.

one of the many hundred things i read is that basically all the world of dnd we know is dead its kinda like the post apocalypse thing.. White wolf did this with WOD. Which has pissed off many people.. and many more are upset with the new world of darkness...

either way? if they say all drow are evil then all your "goody" drizzt players are now seriously screwed. can we say "Ha bitch you're drizzt is really evil!" Yes my drow's picture is one of 50 thousand drizzt ones but I like it and used it for years..
