Today's the day, long anticipated by tabletop gamers of the d20 variety; Dungeons and Dragons Fourth Edition
releases today, coming to a Friendly Local Gaming Store near you. If you aren't familiar with the new edition of the game, Eurogamer has a great rundown on the system's ins and outs
. For a more hands-on technical approach, you can't beat the official Wizards of the Coast site and their lengthy series of preview articles
. You might have also noticed Penny Arcade's recent discussion of 4E
. Though it requires a site login to reach, their hands-on playtime with PvP's Scott Kurtz
is hilariously listenable.
We ask, because we have to imagine some of you MMO fans out there also have occasion to 'roll the bones'. These games are ultimately all built on the foundation that the late, great Gary Gygax
built, right? So, how about it: are you jumping to the newest edition?
