Ok, well, those 6th edition rumors persisted long enough that they stopped being rumors, and apparently 6th edition is going to be real enough. Sort of like predicting anything in a sequence, it will eventually happen. I have heard people be optimistic for improvements in the new edition, and I have heard doom and gloom about how the next edition will spell the end of gaming as we know it.
In any event, what sort of things do people actually want out of 6th? This is silly, but I would kind of like an advance to the story line. I think 2000 years is a good start. I know that fiction based on static things like game systems is supposed to operate in a vacuum, but come on, there are hundreds of novels at this point, something in the story needs to have changed, if only a little.
