I am not really part of the 5e world, I don’t follow the gossip, and the demise of 5e may be a regular occurrence in the 5e world, I honestly don’t know.
What I think is really worth thinking about is when do you consider creating a new edition of your game?
Zweihander creator Daniel D Fox often said that there would be no second edition of Zweihander, but is now asking the community a lot of questions about what they would like to see in Zwei 2e.
How do you stop people who have only just bought into your system from feeling cheated if they find out their brand new books are obsolete?
Is it better to patch an old system through companions and supplements or start with a clean slate and build a whole new edition?
I don’t have any answers, but it is worth giving it some thought.
