So, I’ve been participating in a discussion of sorts about the state of 4E D&D, now that we are nearly two years into it. As anyone reading this blog knows, I’ve come to be quite frustrated with D&D, quite frustrated with DMing for D&D, and quite frustrated with playing D&D. I’ve been on vacation for a week, so I haven’t been around my books, my games or anything else, but coming home and pulling things out again, reading up on the forums and discussions I’d missed while gone and just, getting back into blogging mode has made me really think about… “What I’d Have Done Different.” Or something grandiose and annoying-sounding like that.
Over my next few posts I’m going to consider the state of 4E at the two year mark, consider my own approach to re-writing some parts for my own enjoyment (I’m sure Mike Mearls isn’t calling anytime soon to ask my opinion), and see if I can’t salvage my initial joy I had with the game… We’ll see.
Until then, I’d love any opinions from readers about what they’d have done differently, what they wish was different, how they’d change the game, and any suggestions for something I should focus on.
