New D&D Survey

Post by shesheyan » Wed Sep 12, 2018 10:18 pm

Just filled this survey. Lots of questions about your D&D gaming habits, play style and preferences. Includes a question about your favorite setting. I checked Spelljammer :

Fans of obscure settings like Council of Wryms remember to choose Other then type in your setting in the box that appears. Let’s get Council of Wryms and other small settings back in the game.

Completed it myself. Even let them know that I'm buying the books for sake of retro-conversion because I'm not a fan of the system.

For what little good it will do, I submitted my feedback. Not that it's really what Wisbro wants to hear.

1) I don't care for the Realms.
2) I don't want your Realms-related merch. (See #1 above)
3) I don't listen to your streams/'casts (See #1 above)

But -- plugged The Known World/Mystara for favorite setting, and wrote in Fantasy Empires among the computer games I've played.

I went for Spelljammer too.

There are other campaign settings I would like to see come back, but Spelljammer is my primary setting.

I hesitated a lot between Dark Sun and Spelljammer. I went for SJ because it opens up doors to new worlds and ship travel between them. I was never a fan of the Planescape concept. I prefer travel by boat on water, in the air or in space! ;)

Wrote in Ghostwalk, even though it's probably less to my preference than Planescape overall, just for the sake of representing an unpopular option.

For my three favorite classes I picked Binder, Incarnate, and Swordsage. You can probably pick up on the theme.

Had to write in my single favorite race, the Illumians, but opted not to be a complete nonconformist this time, and put Dragonborn and Goliath above more write-in candidates such as Spellscale and Duskling.

Obviously I've played. 3rd and 5th. It's been more than 6 months in both cases.

holy cow, that was a long survey!

Noted the following: Mystara was not listed, so you had to type in "other". *sigh*

I still managed to plug Mystara and listed Tortles as my favorite race. I was thinking about listing another Mystara race, but I really dont want them to offer a new FR product featuring that race. Tortles have already been ported to the FR now, so might as well hope for more supplements for that one to raid from.

There, finally, that's over. I have to guess on when I started playing D&D; it was certainly not far enough back to have experienced 2nd edition, and I think 3.0 was 2003 or so, and I cut my teeth on that but it was not brand-new at the time, so I guessed 2005.

"How were you introduced to D&D?": "Don't remember, I didn't think I was starting a lifelong hobby or anything, so I didn't really pay attention."
Just guessing that my introduction to D&D (not the first time I knew it existed, but the first time I cared) was probably the same day I played it first.

I didn't buy into the game until long after I first played it. (And why is the answer "I don't own any books" greyed out? O_o)

Don't remember exactly when I acquired my first D&D book, but the semi-accurate answer which I picked over other plausible candidates, because Rule of Funny: "An obsolete Monster Manual which I mostly bought for the pictures of topless succubi".
And then the over-mechanized society we live in shows itself to great comedic effect:
20. You mentioned the first D&D product you owned was a An obsolete Monster Manual which I mostly bought for the pictures of topless succubi.
How was this product obtained? (I answered "Bought Secondhand" because that seems like it should be distinct from the "purchased myself" answer, which implies buying it new.)

Again, bending my answers for the sake of commentary: "This wasn't my first {purchase} ever, but I only ever bought my 5E books because I got a 3-for-$100 deal."

Haven't bought a new book in more than a year because "NO F***ING MONEY".

I've created more than 10 characters. I've created more than 100 characters...this year. Hell, I may have created more than 1000, lifetime total. I am unable to inform Wotco of the second two facts.

Built my first character myself out of a book, or so I assume. And yes I've been a DM. "Existing DM was either absent for a week or just needed a break." plus "I wanted to create my own stories." and "I wanted to be a storyteller." and "I wanted to create/run adventures in my own world."
Again, just guessing on the year. My guess was 2010, and then I said that I had probably only ever done it for 5E, not 3E, so one of those is false for sure, but I don't recall the truth. It last happened more than a year ago, but I still count myself as an active DM, the same way I consider myself a data entry professional despite almost eight months of unemployment. I use current and past publications as well as homebrew, but not enough third party to be worth mentioning. (That section also has an "other" section, I don't know what you could put in there which isn't covered by the four options they give, since "third party" pretty much covers everything that isn't homebrew, TSR or Wotco.)

Guessing I first tried 5E in 2015, though it might have been a year later. I played for about a year and it's been about a year since then, so it lines up pretty well either way, depending on the value of "about". I own only the three corebooks, but I played one session in Curse of Strahd and an entire campaign of Princes of the Apocalypse; according the survey those are equivalent.

"Moderately" interested (that's the second-highest pick) in the Ravnica book, "Somewhat" so in Dragon Heist (which is out already and I've seen it; it doesn't super-appeal to me, but at least it's a nod to the idea of making urban adventures work better in this edition, so I approve to some extent), and "not at all" in all the other listed products, aside from the "gift set" which I have no idea about. I hadn't yeard they were making special dice, but it doesn't surprise me, and I super-don't care. (I wish I could distinguish degrees of not caring; the Waterdeep adventure is less uninteresting to me than a bunch of custom dice, but still below the threshold.)
And oh look, it's another set of radio buttons, what fun. wrote: 38. How important are the following to you when deciding to buy a D&D book?

Instant price reduction on a single product: Slightly appealing ⚪

Special edition products with alternate cover/packaging: Not appealing at all ⚪

An official fifth edition D&D product (e.g., core rulebook, adventure) as a gift with purchase: Moderately appealing ⚪

Online/In-store coupons: Not appealing at all ⚪

I wish "actively insulting" was one of the options I could pick on this one...
Never quite played a D&D video game, which I'm quite sad about (I know that Planescape Torment at least would be worth my time if I ever got around to it). I downloaded D&D Online (the Eberron one) once, but due to some trouble with servers I never actually played it; just as well, since MMOs are designed to be addictive, and I would have been cut off when I lost home internet, not long after that. (It's hard enough to deal with my having lost Second Life that way, and SL is probably the least effective MMO ever in terms of keeping the player glued to it.)

I'm going to lie a bit on the next question; I don't actually play D&D video games (can't yet), go to conventions (anymore) or play their board games (haven't gotten around to it), but I'll count myself as interested enough in those that I should signify them, along with "collecting items", "reading rules", "writing creatively" and "creating stuff". (I only do worldbuilding, and that question lumps this in with drawing maps and shit, which I don't have much interest in. These surveys are never written right.)

No, I do not "follow" D&D, because social media can go f*** itself. Maybe an hour a week, if that, of D&D videos that I watch, but I don't count YouTube as a social media platform, since commenting on videos is a distant fifth priority behind watching videos, watching more videos, deciding which videos to watch later, and eventually watching some of them.

I don't play with family members (and for some reason this is greyed out). I'll give them a 5 for recommending, because "I don't like to be pushy in that way; I'm not likely to bring up the topic of "hey you should devote some of your limited time on this planet to performing this pointless but recreational activity". A more relevant question might be how D&D compares to other RPGs in that regard, which is that you're better than most of the crap that's out there, but by no means are you the best."

I have played MTG (almost entirely in the past), Arkham Horror (that one I'd like to play again, but it's somewhat unlikely to happen) and Gloomhaven (have played once or twice and would happily pick up again, but it's not something I have access to regularly). The only game on their poll that I would regard myself as "Currently playing" is Betrayal at House on the Hill. (Why the dickens does this poll, of all polls, not mention "Betrayal at Baldur's Gate"? Marketing fail!)
My three "Currently Playing" games (two of which I'm specifying mostly just to make the reader of this poll scratch their head a bit):
1. Sentinels of the Multiverse: The Cauldron Fan Expansion
2. Mystic Vale
3. Monsterpocalypse 1.0

And with my age and gender responses, I'm finally done! "Thank you for taking part in our survey. Your response is very important to us.". Yeah, I totally believe that after you asked me whether I was going to spend money on you or not.

I spent most of my life in the land of No F**king Money so I sympathise. I do feel that there was no chance to tell them that the reason you don't buy stuff is 'No Money' shows you how out of touch the survey writer was.
However, since they didn't ask that and looking at your responses they will assume there is some way they can make something you want. Even if you have no money now and never have money you are part of a play group and influence what others buy. WOTC does not intend to serve a niche market they want D&D to dominate the RPG market and appeal to as many people as possible.
So actually, if you are not buying their stuff your responses are likely to be even more closely scrutinised. This is our chance to get WOTC to make stuff we as a community want.

Yeh, maybe they should have made this question characters per year.

Or per edition. The question should have been. How many characters did you play. Then a second question: how many did you create as a DM. They should have made 2 surveys. One for DMs and one for players and give the option of answering both.
