4th Edition happened.
That's what got me. Until I got wind of a DCC RPG in the works I pretty much avoided all RPG related sites (save for CoC, which is actually how I got wind of the DCC RPG, came back to look at Goodman's modules for CoC)
I agree with you there. Our group does not play 4e either. I will admit, that as a DM I am very adamant against 4e and in a way the DM rules. We started a Pathfinder campaign using Whiterock. I am converting the module on the fly as we go and updating somethings for PF.
The DCC RPG sounds very interesting, but I would need more details on it to see how well it would fit in our campaign. Our group (at the core), has been playing together since 1988. Most of us played before that, but we have been playing together for 22 years. So we need to make sure everyone is happy.
To be honest, I have not bought a product from WOTC since 4e came out as I did not care for the direction that DnD was heading. I still pick up modules from GG here and there, but all of the new stuff is 4e related so it is more filling in older sets and picking up things I want. Mostly to support GG as I do not need them right now...
I have high hopes for DCC RPG. GG is a heck of a publishing company and I am looking forward to seeing their vision for the future.
