In that case you have a fair criticism from a market clarity perspective; however much of the tone of this thread reeks of a marginalized splinter cult screaming charges of apostasy at anyone who 'dares' to 'corrupt' the sainted memory of their frankly-moribund game.

My comments have nothing to do with any crimes Mongoose may or may have 
not committed.

In the here and now, if a person does a search for "review runequest 2", 
they will be confused when they find a review for RQ2 on RPG.net.
