DnD 4e is on it's way. Probably old news for you guys. I'll try to track down some links, but there probably isn't much info up yet.

I'm sort of interested in what is going to change. What bothers me is that DnD 2e had about 15 years of life. 3/3.5 only had 5 years. It feels like Wizards is trying to turn it into "Book M:tG."

I'm waiting for 4.5. Kinda serious, actually.

I'm going to do some more digging. The one teaser YouTube video made it appear that there are computer enhancements for the game, which I'm interested in.

When you pick up the core books I expect a full report then!

MOAR FOR YOUS!

Quote:
D&D Insider will cost more than a magazine subsciption but less than an MMO. The precise figure hasn't been announced (or decided). For this monthly fee you get:
- Online Dragon and Dungeon magazine content (3 updates per week which then get fodled together into monthly issues as well)
- DM Tools
- Character Generator with all the rules from all the books wired in plus the visual aspects from the video we posted
- D&D Game Table unlimited access for using the 'Net to connect players to play D&D


Look, I know you guys don't like it, but using the Game Table feature would make things a TON easier for Ye Olde Groupe to get back together for some gaming.

That and I have access to Ventrilo servers (free for you!) we can take advantage of. I'm going to be doing a lot of traveling between now and next Summer, and I'd like to do a little bit of DnD again; and this seems to be the best way.

More to follow. I'm skimming through the GenCon blogs from staffers in my free time at work right now.

I don't know too much about Game Table. I'm still lurking on White Wolf's moderated chat, so it would be silly of me to blast GT.

This guy was an English teacher at my high school for one year; and he's done tons of work for Dungeon/Dragon before being hired by WotC (which is why he left the school)

It's about time. Though I'm interested to see how many people will get their panties in a bundle over this. I'm off to read inadvertantly funny Chic tracts.

What's wrong with her? She's beautiful, she's rich, she's got huge... tracts of land.
