Topic: Why I Cancelled My D&D 4e Books and Ordered C&C Inst
Replies: 140

The thing I don't like about the direction D&D is headed, is that it looks like they're taking the most complicated and difficult aspects of roleplaying games and miniatures games, then combining them together. Games need to be simpler, and have room for the players' imaginations.

I hope this works out for Paizo, I really like them as a business. Heck, if I ever decide to get back into roleplaying games, I just might pick up some of their Pathfinder stuff.

Some interesting ideas, but nothing interests me enough to pay much attention to 4e. The loss of alignments and spell schools is kinda disappointing to me, but I don't really care what they do anymore.

I would like to see them try to sever ties with WotC completely, but I don't really care what they do anymore. I don't buy or play RPG's nearly as much as I used to, so it doesn't really affect me either way.

<t>The people that find 4e appealing seem to be the powergaming/munchkin players, which tend to be far less reasonable and polite than other gamers.
