What I love about 4th edition:
Dungeons and Dragons 4th edition has had more than its share of criticism, but I can’t help but feel that some people have made an emotional decision about it rather than giving it a fair shot. I have the core rulebooks, and I’ve played several times. My favorite aspect of 4e is the amount of work that went into it for dungeon masters. Preparation time is minimal compared to other roleplaying games, making it very easy to learn and play, and giving DMs more time to work on other things.
I like to think of D&D 4th ed. as a “Superhero D&D” because of the high level of power and epicness each character has. Evey class is seriously like a fantasy superhero! It might not be the most realistic set of rules for an RPG but it’s nice to just have a bit of epic fantasy fun!
This week, Dungeon Master Johnny (a.k.a. YourDungeonMaster) tells us why he loves 4th ed. and gives us some tips for making combat even more streamlined. As he says in the video, his group just started playing 4e again and they agree “it’s good to be back.”
GAMERS! What do you like or dislike about the 4e rules? (Share but please respect others’ opinions, as there is no one way to play an RPG.)
