Still an RPG to Me.

To the tune of Billy Joel…..

What’s the matter with the game I’m playing?
“Don’t you know that it plays like WoW?”
Maybe I should pickup the DMG2?
“That’s just a WoTC cash cow.”
“Where have you been hidin’ out lately, honey?
You can’t play the game until you spend a lot of money!”
Everybody’s bashing on the new game
Funny, but it’s still an RPG to me…..

What’s the matter with the old editions?
“Can’t you tell that they’re out of style?”
But the rules don’t seem that ancient
“You’ll be lookin’ up for quite a while.
Nowadays you can’t be too sentimental
All those old charts can really drive you mental.”
Old School, New School, even if it’s “uncool”
It’s still an RPG to me.

Oh, it doesn’t matter what they say on forums
‘Cause it’s always been the same old scene
There’s a new game in town
But you can’t get the play from an old blog…
written by the usual grog….

How about a pair of pink 10-siders
and a mat with one-inch grids?
You could really be a Gary Gygax baby
If you toss in some illithids.
“Don’t waste your money on a monthly subscription,
those online games can only lead to perscriptions.”
Next phase, new wave, game craze, anyways
It’s still an RPG to me.

What’s the matter with the group I’m running?
Don’t you know that they’re out of touch?
Should I try to be a “Sandbox” GM?
If you are then you play too much.
Don’t you know about the new edition, honey?
Toss out those old books and spend all your money.
It’s the next phase, new wave, game craze, anyways
It’s still an RPG to me.
Everybody’s talking about the old school/new school
but they’re still RPG’s to me…..
