Default D&D 4.0

So Cj and I were discussing starting a group up for some pen and paper D&D when 4.0 hits. It sounds like he will more than likely be the DM (which means he needs to stop slacking and come up with some cool shit!) and the girl and I will be playing. I'm just throwing this out there, but would any one else be up for some? Post here if so inclined. Also, apparenlty the 4.0 rules are super streamlined and more accessable for those who have never played this before. Should be a good time.

Default Re: D&D 4.0

Also, Cj has been playing the older version for a bit now and understands the mechanics. So it's not like we'd be going in blind. And you don't have to speak in character or wear a cloak. Unless you want to. Bascially we're talking about having some fun during the weekend, drinking some beers, and killing some kobolds. And if you've played WoW or LOTRo then from what I've heard, they have made the 4.0 version more like these games. So yah.

Default Re: D&D 4.0

Sweet! Yah, as he plays with another group already, I think we were kinda thinking maybe playing twice a month or something. More than likely it'd be at our place as you can smoke there if you want and we gots a big ass dining room table. I'm not sure yet though. Although 4.0 doesn't come out till June and I'm itching to start playing.

I've read about an online component with 4.0 but as far as I know it's straight pen and paper.

WOO! They are out! ayaya!

And this:

Quote:
They're readying Dungeons and Dragons Insider - a suite of online software tools for the game - for release along with the new rule set, and it could change the way people play Dungeons and Dragons...for a price. Along with a character creator that allows you to keep track of your character's looks and stats and a dungeon builder that allows Dungeon Masters to craft 2D dungeon maps, the star of the suite is the Game Table, which lets the DM import their 2D creations into a 3D environment and run players through it online, complete with voice chat. What is all of this going to cost? While it isn't set in stone, Wizards is toying with a price range of $10-15 - a month.
Could mean we could play with people anywhere...hmmms.....????

I'd probably try it. Never got to play D&D properly back in the day. Not enough people.
