I get it with matters of religion and faith. It comes with the territory. Not talking about that.
I mean with things quite mundane. In this case, the W20 Kickstarter in my previous post. People have asked if there will be Mind's Eye Theater rules in the book, or if they could be made available as a stretch goal.
MET Wanters: "We want MET rules!"
Informed Backers: "Onyx Path doesn't have the rights to publish MET material." "Onyx Path said in their panel at Gen Con that they don't have the rights. They said it again at Atlanta by Night. They even said that someone else is bidding on getting the rights to publish them." "Here's the link to the audio of the panel at Gen Con when they said it."
MET Wanters: "Until we hear something official, we won't believe it." (Note: Audio at Gen Con panel is Onyx Path Publishing's Owner saying they don't have the rights to publish MET)
Onyx Path Publishing's OWNER: "No, we don't have the rights to MET." "We thought about getting the rights and publishing them, but we'd have to sort out which rules, fix them, etc. We don't have the team for it right now and the MET rules deserve a team that will do them justice." "We won't be including MET rules in W20." "Maybe we'll try for the rights at some point, but not for this project."
MET Wanters: "But we want them. Put a team on developing them now so we can have them!"
*sighs* People are people...
