Massawyrm at AICN has an exclusive review of the new 4th Edition D&D. Reading the review really brings me back to my own memories of being a D&D gamer; I gave up D&D back during 2nd Edition (when there was still the Basic vs Advanced dichotomy). What lured me away was Magic: The Gathering, and then after college I just never had time again to play anything. I really would love to get back into D&D but the constraints on my time are even worse now than before. Plus, no matter how innovative the rules, to have fun you just need to play with friends, and most of mine are too far away, scattered around the nation. Maybe next year.
Actually wouldn’t it be amazing if we could run a D&D campaign via group chat?
UPDATE via Scott,
hmm. Anyone up for a campaign? 🙂
