    "Anticipated" is a word with many flavors.

    Yesterday i have seen here the news regarding 4E but it appears that you are in a bit of a time lag - Thanks to silverstars (israel publisher), we here at israel got all the beans already ;-)
    - Relesase date - May 2008
    - PHB @ May, MM @ June, DMG @ July
    - The SRD/OGL/D20 will still exist, however he didn't reveal any further details
    - Apprantaly there will be at least 7 books of D&D 4 on 2008, no info what exactly though.
    - There will be hebrew on WotC site, unknown when, which means that there will be somekind of multilingual support on D&D insider/Gleemax.
    Hah! And I didn't know!

    As a confirmation, you can look here, where the Silver Stars publishing man says (in loose translation):

    Ok, so a little information:

    Fourth Edition is coming out starting in May 2008 in English. First the Player's Handbook, then the Monster Manual, then the Dungeon Master Guide. Each month a new one.

    The OGL keeps on living and so does the whole system (D20). All of course with the appropraite changes. Unfortunately, I can't say what those are, as although the edition's existence has been exposed they're only releasing more details today.

    I can tell you this: in accordance with our agreement with Wizards, we are already setting things up for a translation, so that between the publication in Engiligh and in Hebrew there would be a very short time. ... Our current plan is to translate all the seven intial books of D&D 4 (no, I can't tell you what the rest are at the moment, but they are so yummy, you'll so enjoy them...). That means 2008 will be a very busy year...

    Sounds like Silver Stars has been contracted to translate 4e to Hebrew. Interesting.

    wasn't it the Israeli Defense Forces who declared D&D players a security risk?

    Non sequitur? Because the hebrew language is connected with the IDF in a meaningful way?

    Iiiinteresting.

    FRCS: No brainer!

    Dragon-Book: Well, Draconomicon was a huge success...

    Magic Item Book: As well as MIC. But this means DMG will have less?

    Magic Book: Hmmm... hopefully it's not too essential to play a caster...

    Martial Arts Book: Goodbye monk? Exiled into a book....?

    Just idle speculation...

    Cheers, LT.
