Dungeons and Dragons is nagging at me. I’ve been wanting to play D&D again for quite some time now.
I picked up the core books for the 3.5 edition, and was pretty excited to start playing; unfortunately, it never came together. I’m not sure why, but I do know it had nothing to do with the rules. Edition 3.5 seemed pretty solid to me, but I could have just as easily gone out to my garage and pulled out my old copy of D&D with the red cover, which was a much simpler version from a couple of decades past, but it was my favorite. The version of the rules doesn’t really matter.
Then why am I considering the major purchase of the 4th edition rules?
Honestly, it’s because I’ve heard so many people talking about how this version has gotten them excited about the game again. Dungeons and Dragons (or any roleplaying game) is such a different type of gaming experience, and I really miss that. It’s like a missing section of my gaming food pyramid that I feel like I need to fill so that I can have a well-balanced gaming diet.
