I'm tempted to roll up my sleeves on this one. Let's see if I can resist the urge to stir up conflict. First, an observation. Its interesting how mentioning 'thinly veiled hate' with no specific persons outlined provokes responses. I've agreed in other places that D&D 4th doesn't really look like D&...

Re: Am I wrong about D&D 4e?

Ah, yes... Topics of thinly veiled hatred. I feel at home here. ^_^ First of all, I want to say that everyone has their own expectations regarding RPGs... the width of which varies as much as the expectations do. I pride myself on the ability to enjoy most types of RPGs (White Wolf products aside).....

<t>I agree that it is a matter of customer service to provide errata for the masses. Think about it... if someone had purchased each printing of the PHB except for the new one, they are pretty close to $100 deep and that isn't even counting any of the M&T printings.<br/> <br/> To clarify; I thin...

<t>I think your spell allotment is just fine. Low level wizards need all the help they can get.
