Oh Hai

Saw the 4E Dungeon Master's Guide and Monster Manual at Barnes & Noble at lunchtime. I got a vaguely disassociated feeling, sort of like encountering an old flame who you had a particularly nasty breakup with years later at a concert or something. No interest, no anger, just a matter-of-fact "Oh look, there's the book."

Since I'm pretty much the driving force of our group, I guess this means we won't be switching. 'sokay, we need to finish Red Hand of Doom anyway.

4e is definately for a new generation ("Not your daddy's D&D" is one way I've heard it expressed). I'm sticking to 3, or 3.5 if I have to.

That's one way to put it. Its got this stripped down ruleset that looks like it should make things more interesting, if only because you can do all sorts of wacked out stuff, even moreso than you could do with 3.5e.

My only real gripe about the MM 4e book is the lack of real detail fluff info that you used to get in the older MM books. Like "This monster is found underground, and usually makes victims into servants" and that's about it.

Still, its pretty interesting what you can do though. Heroes are MUCH more Heroic in nature.

I've got a set of the books on the way, i'll be giving them a look-see probably after anthrocon.

Personally, I decided to do something radical and wait until I actually got copies of the books in my hands before I passed judgment, and have been in a sort of voluntary media blackout. It means that WOTC will get more of me money, but my opinion will be based on the work itself, not the hype surrounding it...

So far, it's struck me as having taken several steps backward from 3rd edition. I'm going to playtest it with the group I game with, at some point. I'll let you know just how sucky it is.
