    I have been busy playing several DnD Campaigns over the last few months. Which is why I have spared you all from articles of rage and my burning hot hatred of Kalypso Media.

    Its been a rough spot of my life as I am medicating in an attempt to correct my life and be a better person. Part of this is focusing on writing positive pieces and reviews. I have been entertaining the idea of doing a series of gaming blogs concerning the various games I play. I have three main campaigns that I DM and a few that I play in. Most of these are recorded in some fashion and released on the DGZ Media youtube channel. One is a campaign of my own design taking place on Eternity Island while two others are established third party settings (Crime Scene and Darwins World)

    You can see most of them on this Youtube Channel, though these are older games. I’m working on getting the more recent games uploaded.

    Hey Necroscourge!

    Which edition(s) do you play? How do you feel about fourth edition? I haven’t been playing for long, and started with the 4e Red Box; it seems as though whenever anyone asks me what version I prefer, they drop me from the conversation once I tell them I’ve only played 4e!

    Why the hate for 4e? Is it really that different? Why are the other editions better?

    ALSO You mentioned entertaining the idea of blogging about the games that you play. Would you mind dropping me an email (mostly so I could pass the address onto Jonathan, who would like to contact you) – it’s derek@geekscape.net

    Thanks man, and I hope to hear from you soon!

    Well. I have played hours upon hours of 4E, 3.5, Traveler, and NWoD with a huge collection of books around my room. I can say without a doubt that the biggest reason for the hatred of 4E is what the edition represented as Wizards response to the new generation’s interest in Online Gaming. The Essentials Red Box was their reply to criticism and thus plays more like 3.5 as the classes have limited powers. Its a simpler version of the game only because the classes provided are meant to replicate the feeling of traditional 3.5 classes.

    Really the two games are near identical besides the way power scales and some terminology and of course… the caaaarrrrrddddssss. That is my biggest argument again 4E. The cards of course are meant to simulate the many different powers and abilities MMO characters receive and firmly removed the edition from the whimsical and familiar lands of 3.5 into a chaotic hellhole of loud flashy special effect attacks and the complete lack of a reason to use a “basic attack”.

    While it can be argued that 3.5 made DnD more like a wargame; Fourth was the edition that jumped the shark. Simply put Fourth feels like it is restricting the creativity and development of 3rd party content which provided hundreds of new settings and companies to go on and become quite famous! Furthermore the power system prevents the easy design of new character classes which is a fun thing to delve into with 3.5. I could go on for days and days about amazingly fun prestige classes you could play and have a fun experience with. For instance in a Star Ship Troopers book you can play a Marine that is cybernetically linked to an attack dog called a Neo Dog.

    I have had a look at Fifth and I’m pretty excited for it. I have recently started playing Traveller and I have enjoyed it so far as well. I recently have been playing an amazingly fun Post Apocalyptic setting called Darwins World by RPGObjects. While I hate their business policies its hard to argue with the quality and originality of the writers. The setting provides a fun mutation system along with a much needed recap on the level Adjustment system which is very nebulously confusing to find reading material on.

    I will shoot you an Email with ze contact informations.

    And Fushna, I almost exclusively play on the internet. One of my favorite players is a first time online DnD gamer and he can now coach other players on the game. The best thing you can do is read the 3.5 players handbook and most importantly read over the various rules.

    Did I mention I like babies?

    I’m trying to get a picture of the Metroid’s tits!

    Now when you say you like babies do you mean you like to see them or you like to eat them?
