I finally got my Dungeons & Dragons 4th edition core rulebook collection yesterday!!! I called home at lunch to see how things were when the wife said ..."you got a package from amazon..", man did the rest of the day drag on. That had to be the longest 4 hours I have had in quite some time. All I could think about was getting home and ripping open that package. Which is exactly what I did the moment I walked in the door.
I haven't read all the way through the books yet, but first off I have to say the artwork is fantastic. I have mixed feelings about what little of the rules I have skimmed. On one hand it seems like the same old D&D we've been playing over the past 7 years, with just a few things to snazzy it up a bit. On the other hand it seems to be both easier and more complicated at the same time. There seems to be more to remember, but then again it is still new and I haven't read the whole thing.
When I do I will definitely be putting my review up, but for now I've got some rules to read and some dice to roll.
