    Guild Wars 4-year update

    What do people think of the new Guild Wars stuff they've added in for their 4th birthday? Fourth Anniversary content update - Guild Wars Wiki (GWW) It's pretty cool, I have to say. I hadn't touched GW for a year at least, but this has got me playing again. Hooked up with Nom (I think) and had...

    4E 4e Green Slime

    No, the current edition is not whimsical. The current edition is metal. 1E had a healthy amount of whimsy in it, which became an unhealthy amount in some supplements.

    4E Help a 4e N00B

    The best way to think of martial powers is as little prepackaged stunts. They also happen to give you an extra 1[w] or 2[w] awesomeness boost to damage.

    Wait, what? PC is writing a Dungeon adventure?

    It would seem so: Dungeon #164 Table of Contents Man! Now I really have to get my gear in shape for that campaign I've been planning for OVER 9000 YEARS!

    Time to dump the "unofficial 4E info page" link?

    It's still there at the top of the 4E rules forum. http://www.enworld.org/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=319

    4E d20 Modern 4E - I want it!

    OTOH, it's not really a new problem. 3E d20M solves it by drastically curtailing the ranges of all guns, which IIRC generated a bit of a ruckus at the time.

    4E d20 Modern 4E - I want it!

    Minis might actually be a problem with modern. You can handwave D&D characters in dungeons and winding streets always being in close quarters combat, but a sniper rifle can ding you from 1 km away.

    4E The problem with 4e

    The job of the rules is to resolve conflicts in gameplay, not to resolve conflicts on D&D mailing lists such as this one.

    Forked Thread: Do nonmagical 1/day abilities damage suspension of disbelief?

    Forked from: Do nonmagical 1/day abilities damage suspension of disbelief? So the fluff won't win the Pulitzer prize. Hm, hit fork instead of quick reply. Can someone merge this back with the other thread? AdvTHANKSance!

    4E 4e and 1 combat a day

    If fights are boring because they take forever, use more minions. If fights are boring because of the lack of narrative structure linking them, well, that's not a system issue. The good thing about 4E is that it still all works, even with only one fight per day. Nobody gets overshadowed...

    4E d20 Modern 4E - I want it!

    Also, I don't see how per-day powers can't be used in a 4EM game. Mechanically, it's just a way of limiting abilities that are powerful so that they don't become overly routine and unbalance the game. Narratively, it's a way to encourage these abilities to be used only when facing really tough...

    4E d20 Modern 4E - I want it!

    Yes. The d20M classes are pointless. If they're going to be that broadly-based, you might as well junk them and let people pick whatever abilities they want.

    4E Designing 4e adventures for a single character?

    In addition to cutting monster numbers, boost the PC level and/or dial the monster level way down. With just one PC, they won't beable to take advantage of things like flanking or buffs from other party members, so they'll have a tough time wearing down the monsters (who have good defenses and...

    4E Crafting... can anyone make anything in 4E?

    Of course, these would not be the people who create homebrew rules before necessarily having a group to use them with.
