In Praise of Wizards

I posted this several days ago on the Wizards boards, but I think it’s worth posting again here.

Ouch. My brain hurts. I’ve been reading too many negative posts.

Mike, Rob, Des, Jonathan – and everyone else who is involved in making the D&D Miniatures game – Thank you.

Thank you for all the time you’ve put into this game, trying to make it the best it can be.

Thank you for listening to all of our opinions, good or bad.

Thank you for telling us as much as you can, even when faced with the realities of business life.

Thank you for taking the gamble of making Huge figures. Even though I’m disappointed that the Huge Red Dragon will be twice as rare as I thought it would be, and even though I’m worried about the implications of the split rarity system, thank you for trying to balance the needs of collectors and gamers.

Thank you for creating something that I have real trouble resisting the urge to “just buy one pack more”.

Thank you for creating a product that is enjoyable in its own right, and that also enhances my gaming love of over 20 years – D&D.

Thank you all so very much.

You can find the original post and the discussion here.

I have a Vrock now. It’s too big. It only just stands up. I still love it, though.

I wish Githyanki weren’t uncommon, though. I wish they weren’t so good. It’d be easier to trade for them! I wanted a few for a recent RPG session, but I couldn’t get enough. Oh well, I’ll probably get a few more in the next month.
