So I just received an e-mail form WotC letting me know that the playtest files will be taken down on 12/15. Ghost of Dragonspear Castle is now available in PDF (I have the print version) and two more adventures are on the way next year (with the rules to use them).
My first question is why take the rules down? We all know that they will still be available and the rules in the Ghost of Dragonspear Castle are not the latest playtest rules.
My second question is when are we going to get a firm release date? Sure, we all suspect that it will release at Gen Con next year, but we don't know for sure.
I understand that even if every employee at WotC wanted more transparency, Hasbro could easily cut them down. But I hate to see short sighted ideas being continually used by the "industry leader". If your not innovating, your dying.
