What about you what are your thoughts about it?
It was fun to play it and wasnt as slow as previous editions.
4th edition seems to, at first glance, become far more fantasy-based and a lot less medieval. Nigh on everyone has some sort of magic-esque ability. One thing that gets me about it is the lack of consistency throughout the statistics of characters and monsters. In 3.x you could generate a monster (say, a goblin) just as easily as a "normal" race, and pretty much the same options would be open to you. Want a goblin druid? Fine, it's no harder than making an elven one.
All of these "racial" traits I keep hearing about with 4th edition don't exactly inspire me to move over, and as I've got more than enough 3.x stuff to keep my group going for a good while (even though we never bothered with beyond the PHB, DMG and standard MM, plus we write all of our own campaigns/scenarios) and we can always generate more to do once these campaigns die down.
I have a question :
The Combat Challenge class feature of the fighter allows him (or her) to make a melee basic attack as an immediate interrupt to any ennemy who shifts or attack another character. Is this attack considered an opportunity attack ? (Wich would stop the shift, thanks to the Combat Superiority Class Feature, in addition of giving a bonus on the attack roll equal to the fighter's Wisdom modifier...)
Thanks for answering !
And by the way, 4th edition is neat. It's different. Really different. Feels like a totaly new game to me, but really neat. I didn't think they'd come up with something better than the 3rd (and 3.5) edition... I don't think this edition makes the previous obselete, but it is sure worth buying and playing !
