Fifth edition?  That's as crazy as coming out with a new 5th Edition of D&D so soon after...  Oh, riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight...

I doubt it.  I mean, hell, we're barely into metaplot storylines and how many more PDFs CGL can pump out.  :)  SOTA'73 is pretty good.

SOTA  '73? I missed that one :(

I'll bite...  What's wrong with SWD6?  I also think its superior to d20.

SWD6 is better than SWD20. But everytime its mentioned we get a "dicepool vs d20" discussion that changes no one's opinion because everyones been gaming long enough to be firmly entrenched in whichever side (or middle) of the issue they prefer.

But it's not as bad as magazines vs clips.

Everyone does, you read one and you use the other to group pieces of paper together.

Sorry, just stating my opinion, I thought.  No intention of starting anything (again or not).

No worries. And you'll notice, I agree

First off, let me say that I agree. People bastardizing precise terminology to suit their needs makes me want to slap someone... or roll my eyes and sigh dramatically. One of the two. I usually go with the sigh, since assault charges are a pain.

However, as much as we may not like the path it takes, language does evolve. If an incorrect usage continues for long enough, and reaches a broad enough level of usage, it becomes correct.

Unfortunately for everyone, the word "Clip" being used to mean "the thing that keeps bullets together so you can shove them in the gun quickly," passed that threshold quite a while ago, and no amount of pedanticism is going to reverse it... rather like kids today thinking "FTW" means "For The Win" not "Fuck The World."

And FTP doesn't mean what it should mean either.
