    4E 4e Competition/Alternatives?

    Beyond D&D I've played and run lots of different games beyond Dungeons & Dragons over the past 25 years, but here are my favorites: -GURPS: The Fourth Edition of Steve Jackson Games' Generic Universal Role-Playing System is useful for any genre, and there are indeed numerous well-written...

    4E Going/Not Going to 4E which edition did you start with?

    D&D past and future I started playing Dungeons & Dragons with the boxed set in 1982, when I was a freshman in high school. I later played and ran AD&D1, AD&D2, and D&D3x/D20, as well as other systems, ranging from Palladium to Storyteller to GURPS. I've generally been an early adopter, and...

    4E Which old setting would you like to see revamped for 4E?

    While I know that Greyhawk and the Forgotten Realms have the most supporters, I'd like to see "Dungeons & Dragons" Fourth Edition support (by third parties, if need be) for Mystara, Dragonlance, Al Qadim, and Kara Tur. This may indicate some nostalgia for OD&D and AD&D, but there has also been...

    4E Which 3rd party companies do you want 4ed products from?

    Third-party D&D4e/OGL publishers I think that Mongoose's licensed D20 properties, Green Ronin's historical sourcebooks, and "classic feel" supplements from other third-party publishers would all be good things to update using the allegedly streamlined rules of Dungeons & Dragons Fourth Edition...

    4E D&D 4E Style

    D&D4e art I've liked and disliked bits of the art in every edition of "Dungeons & Dragons," and I expect D&D4e to be no different, although the importance of the core rulebooks as something that most D20 players will refer to regularly can't be underestimated. The tone, from eccentric...

    4E Mythusmage's D&D 4e Thoughts

    Dungeons & Dragons 4e ideas I would also stick with the existing three books, although I might structure them differently. Player's Handbook 4e -Abilities I like 'em all, so I'd keep Str, Dex, Con, Int, Wis, Cha. I'd try to streamline figured stats or various adjustments (lifting, dodging...

    Heroes wanted!

    No experience required! Existing face-to-face group based in Needham, Massachusetts (about 10 miles west of Boston), is looking for a reliable, mature, and creative role-players, not "hack-and-slash roll-players."

    1E The reasons to keep the rules 1e

    D&D1e vs. D&D3.5 I've known several role-players and Game Masters over the years who were reluctant or refused to update their games to the latest editions of "Dungeons and Dragons" (or Hero/Champions, RoleMaster/MERP, Storyteller, GURPS, etc.). One reason is that if you've made the investment...

    1E Holdover rules from 1e/2e

    Holdover 1e/AD&D2 rules in D&D3.5/D20 games I still use some of the "Dragon" magazine critical hit tables, training rules, and the Comliness score from earlier editions of "Dungeons and Dragons." I try not to confuse combat or spell-related rules (fortunately, some of the guys in my current...

    Heroes wanted in the Boston area!

    Experienced Game Master (since 1982) looking for mature, creative role-players (not "hack-and-slash roll-players" or rules lawyers) for a face-to-face pen-and-paper group to meet in the suburbs west of Boston. No experience is necessary! Campaign genres include fantasy, steampunk, comic book...
