D&D Encounters: the Keep on the Borderlands — 1 Comment

  1. I have to agree with you on the direction of 4e in the past 6 months or so. I’m particularly disappointed that all new products appear to be using the Essentials class model, which yeah there were way too many options before and there was bloat and horrors beyond reckoning but Essentials classes are too much at the other end of the spectrum for me. I like some of the mechanics of them but overall they leave me unexcited.

    I’m starting to lose my thrill with 4e in general, even if I draw a line in the sand at everything in the old builder only. Still, this is the longest I’ve been system monogamous since my pre- high school days. I don’t think I’ve played or run a game that wasn’t 4e in well over 2 years – Steam Wars was probably the last one. I’ve run 2 campaigns and a large handful of one-shots and played in 3 or 4 campaigns. It gave me great mileage and a lot of fun. But I’ve definitely been feeling lately that I need to do something different, maybe move as far away from sword and sorcery as possible for a bit.
