If I could ask WotC for a few reasonable things...

Great article below for WotC and 4e.

If I could ask WotC for a few reasonable things...
...this would be what I'd ask for.


1: The Character Builder. Allow anyone to make a character for free. Let people make a character without registering, without giving you their email. They can't save their characters, but so what? Let them make as many characters as they want, up to 3rd level, would be best, but if you want to restrict it more, fine. You may have some arcane reasons why you think this is bad. Like...few games progress beyond level 3, so most people would be getting free use of the tool for most games. Doesn't matter. Means more people will play, that's all that matters. If anyone can make a dude, you convert idle, curious people, into players.

2: Organize the Dungeon & Dragon info better. I pay. I subscribe. Why can't I easily bring up all 1st level adventures? Or all 1st-through-3rd? Or all Warlord content? Let *us* tag the content, just XML, and we'll do all the work for you.

3: Give these guys some love. They've made the most useful tool in the history of the game, throw them a bone. Make their program official. Give it some support. You don't need to make your own version, these guys have already done tons of work. You have no idea how easy this little program makes running the game, but I can't import monsters from the online builder, which means...and I want to make this clear...your new monsters are useless to me. That's right, this tool is WAY more useful than the new adventures you're publishing. I'd rather not use your content, which I'm paying for, than give up using this free tool.

There's a lot of stuff I *could* ask for, but isn't this reasonable?
