It's not just
the Neverwinter reference, but this article on the D&D website
by the D&D art director Jon Schindehette really speaks to the experience of the D&D brand that's brought so many of us here to debate Neverwinter. Neverwinter isn't just another video game to us that recognize it as part of the over arching idea that is D&D. It's another chapter in a long standing institution.
I thought you folks might appreciate this.
