Yeah -- is 30 levels just 30 thinner slices of the same loaf, or is it the original 20 slice loaf plus another half a loaf?

You can use a different metaphor if you want.

How are monsters changing in 4e? Are they still going to be advanceable without tacking on class levels? Are the types mostly unchanged? Are they going to be mostly true to their past edition incarnations, or are they being retconned "Monster Makeover" style?

Thanks!

Are the classes customizable as they made in Saga, or have them become more rigid? How the game is supposed to reduce preparation time - less info needed for monsters, less spells and skills, or does it rely entirely on electronic applications?

Nice, can't say I blame them.

I'm giving it some serious thought, just for the playtest possibility.

Of course, I'd need to see the sign-up thing first. ;)

Will monsters still have types and subtypes similar to what they are now?
Very different. Monsters fill key "roles" in encounters. All the stuff Mike Mearls was talking about on the Wizards website, that's all 4e. Mike's on the design team.

Mearls?

Very cool.

If the quality of his contribution is anywhere near his normal work, ala Iron Heroes, then awesome.

Here's a great quote from Chris, "A lot of things are going to be changing, and we're going to put most of it in previews on D&D Insider, but I can assure you the Beholder will still only have 9 eyes."

Question!

Lots of prestige classes (Mystic Theurge, Eldritch Knight, etc) were introduced in 3.5 because the multiclassing rules were too punishing to spellcasters. Will these classes still be needed in 4.0?

Thanks!

Are there skill points in 4E? Attacks of Opportunity?

When they say 'short stat blocks', how short are we talking?
