Strategy & Tactics

I just read a really excellent post over at Trollsmyth's blog that broke down the whole non-argument surrounding Editions and D&D into a simple matter of Strategy versus Tactics, and it all comes down to a preference for one of those two poles of perspective.  An excellent and insightful piece.  You can find it here.

There is no one true and right edition for us all.  It's a game, not a ring of power or a pair of zubaz-stretchpants from the Eighties.  Ugh.  Instead of running down any other edition or whatever, how about supporting the stuff we do like?  If enough people stopped the hating and started getting creative and got more passionately involved in the Renaissance part of the OSR...who knows,,,it might even become a seriously viable market.  It is possible.  If enough people really, actually care enough to do the work involved, and enough others are motivated and persuaded (on the merits of the stuff produced), to support those efforts.  A lot of very serious progress has already taken place.  Retro-clones are showing up in retail stores.  Harness all the energy wasted in arguing and you could fly a rocket to the Moon or Mars, or at least do something worthwhile and possible even fun.

Just a thought.  I've got work to get back to.  Take care.
