"IF IT WORKS, WHY CHANGE IT?"

Roleplaying books aren't software indeed. They don't have "licenses" that expire in a year, and they only become "obsolete" when the publishers release a new edition, something that usually take at least eight years (unless your previous edition was a flop *cough*d&d*cough*). Furthermore, unless a player has needs his current game clearly can't provide, he'll have little to no motivation to look for greener pastures.

It's not hard to see why grognards keep their books from 1977. It's not only futile to nag them into trying new things... it's their right, it's their choice. Don't like the game the GM is running? Find a different table.

Having said this, "rulings not rules" is an easy line to say... when your system is CRAP. That apology is Oberoni's Fallacy's biological father. If a system is broken, if the numbers make no sense, if the writing is condescending/self-serving, then your game is crap, and no amount of doublethink and apologists will ever make me believe 2+2 is 5.

Peace.

P.S: This comic had been on the waiting queue for... almost a year now. About time its turn finally came!
