1 - Is the D&D community split a bad thing?



Executive Summary: People are discussing whether the split caused by the release of 4E and Pathfinder is a bad thing or not.

URL: www.enworld.org/forum/general-rpg-discus...

Summary: (from the OP)
My question to everyone is, is the split a bad thing? Have we wound up with two companies making half as much money, or do we have two companies making decent profit, where before we only had one?

Or to put it another way, do we have a situation where we had a sort of asexual reproduction of D&D, fissioning into two entities that are now growing into full size?http://www.enworld.org/forum/
