4th Edition D&D

Inspired by John Kovalic’s post on the new D&D books and his request for us to share out thoughts, I posted the following as a comment on his blog. By the time I got to the end, I figured I might as well just make it into a post for my own blog as well. [...]

Well, that was interesting


Stuff to ponder today, that’s for sure.
