So, by this time next year, there'll be another year of life with D&D 4e under our belts, another Gen Con come and gone, and another slate of new RPG releases out the door.
Here's your chance: comment on your predicitons for the next year in gaming.
Other possible subjects for prediction:
-What are going to be the surprise hits (and flops) of the next year?

-How will D&D Insider be doing?
-What sort of "industry buzz" will we all be discussing?
-Where the hell is White Wolf headed?
-What will the old school gaming community be working on? What will the titanic controversies and issues of the day be?
-What's hot now that will be forgotten in the next 365 days?
-Will the Ron Edwards/IPR split have worked out well?

-How will WotC's new miniatures strategy be working?
-What company will be poised for a big breakthrough?
-Will I have my Castle Keeper's Guide yet (I have faith)?

1 year from now (I'll mark it on my calendar), we'll see who was right, who was wrong, and what the jury is still out on. The is your chance to show off those prognostication skills, so have at it! (Fellow bloggers, if you do a post on the topic, let me know, and I'll do a compilation post of predictions).
