I'm getting really bored with the all-fluff "new direction" for Dragon, and we're not even two weeks into it.Again: I don't need anyone to feed me fluff. I can do that on my own. I depend on Dragon to give me interesting new crunch.I didn't complain when the CB updates were delayed, because for me, DDI is about the magazines first and the tools second. But when the magazines turn into something I have no use for, THAT is something that makes me want to discontinue my subscription.So, yeah. Boo-urns to this useless article.
I do agree that background benefits of the generic "here are two associated skills" variety are pretty much a waste of space at this point. Background benefits that open up non-generic options (like Adventurer's Scion and Necromancer's Chattel) do add something new to the game, and I would prefer to see Dragon articles focus on those.
