Tomb of Horrors for 4E. Why does it bother you?
Now. Here is the deal. I am not challenging anyone's opinion on their hate for the new module. You don't like it. Fine. But, tell me why.
Here are a few arguments I have heard. I am not taking these from any source in particular, just a lot of has been said to me.
"It is spitting in the face of old D&D fans!"
Ok How? I see more of an homage. They know that old D&D fans loved the original ToH, so maybe they can use some of that love to help promote a new product.
"It's not the Tomb of Horrors!"
Ok. True. But they say that in the module too. This is not S1 converted to D&D4. This is the same dungeon XX number of years later. See I like that idea. I don't need to run people through the old Tomb of Horrors anymore. I have my original copy if I want to do that. But in truth, I don't care for TPK modules, though I do like ones that make the players think.
"It's just Wizards trying to make money!"
When did making money become such a bad thing? Not making money was what killed TSR (among other things) a company has to make money to keep being a company.
"You can't remake Tomb of Horrors"
Well, TSR did with Return to the Tomb of Horrors back int he 2nd Ed days. And Wizards isn't remaking it, they are revisiting it.
Now normally I wouldn't care what other thought about something I liked. I am used to that and keep on liking what I like anyway. But a lot of the people telling me this and the people posting this are people whoes opinions I generally trust.
AND it is not just that they don't like it, they hate it.
Of course this hate seems to be strongly tied to their hate of 4e. But truthfully if you don't like 4e then this module was not for you in the first place.
What do you say?
Do you hate the new Tomb of Horrors? If so why?
