Boromir battle

4E Play Report

sirfox ran a session of D&D 4E for us tonight, taking us through Keep on the Shadowfell. The first part of the evening was mostly character generation and writing up power cards; the actual adventure part consisted mostly of some not-so-random encounters with kobolds, a little bit of investigation in town, and then a biggish fight at the site of a dragon graveyard.

So, bottom line? Eh, it's playable and I will enjoy it well enough. Saga Edition is a better system overall, and just about any previous edition of D&D has better "flavor text." I don't know that I'll ever be able to stomach the idea of running it, but as long as sirfox is willing to run, I'm willing to play. I would like to see a 3.5e warlord (and no, not the Marshal).

PS: I went with Arcangalad. His miniature is very cool, and I will post some pics of that when I have 'em.
