There was interesting post earlier in the week over at theRPGsite (thanks Gamedaddy) on the Saturday D&D lineup at this year's Origins Game Convention. It breaks down roughly as follows:
BD&D/Oldschool Includes basic D&D & Clones
One (1) specifically listed (maybe one or two of these above?)
3rd Edition / 3.5 / OGL
Living Arcanis (Technically 3.5 variant/d20...)
Unknown (Host deliberately omitted D&D version and couldn't ID version based on game host/sponsor)
Now, as you can see Wizards of the Coast is again not on the Origins vendor map, and that might bend things a little than what they otherwise would be. Still, as a snapshot, it's interesting that things remain not only so fragmented amongst the player base, but so darn close to even. With Gen Con being the premiere RPGA event of the year, I imagine 4e will see a healthy swing the other way there. But I wonder what the split is at smaller conventions?
