D&D and Brand Economics

I won't deny, d&d has managed to recover the household name it used to have. This has little to do with 5E's quality and everything to do with Mearls using the money he'd have used paying Monte Cook (and then all other writers he fired one by one) in payola. Having key geek influencers and professional entertainers on board and playing on youtube was definitely the right move towards turning d&d into a brand. Then Stranger Things happened, while Mearls was not involved (he wishes), the series was Mearls' ticket back to easy street, where he is now, living off rental and licensing phone apps and coloring books.

That was the lucky break Mearls needed, especially since he had just about ran out of both spinnable excuses and human shields (WotC's d&d division already works with a skeleton crew, a situation not unlike the last days of White Wolf at CCP's hands).

While it's good for him that he finally found a thing he can actually be productive at, what's good for him is going to be lethal for d&d as a game. Sure, phone apps and videogame licenses make more money for WotC than roleplaying books, but the dnd division already reached a level where they can no longer produce gaming books by themselves (reminder: all of d&d's adventure campaigns were written by contractors) even if they wanted (Xanathar's guide took three years to put together from Mearls' napkin notes).

Oh well, hopefully at least d&d's sacrifice will benefit the rest of the industry and help it get out of the current dark age it's in now.

Peace.
