Quote from: KatieHal on September 17, 2012, 10:08:19 AMSome people won't like something no matter what, and we're fine with constructive criticism. However, I do think it's unfair that this reviewer was so ticked off that he couldn't get into a room that doesn't exist for 10 minutes and he decides to blame us for that. (Or at least, so his writing implies.)

Quote from: KatieHal on September 18, 2012, 02:32:44 PMGraham would be a knight/cavalier/paladin, yeah. One who doesn't minx/max and throw all their stats into strength and con, as well. D&D...hm. It can be fun. But it can be a lot of number crunching and boredom, too. I'm an avid roleplayer, and while I got my start in D&D like many, I'm not really interested in it anymore. I've come to enjoy systems with less crunch and more character-focused mechanics (Unisystem and 7th Sea are my personal favorites). D&D also moved into the figurine-based gameplay in 4th edition which I don't enjoy at all. I don't want to count out spaces in my turn in battle like it's a board game. I want cool descriptions of slashing the bad guy with my sword, grabbing a curtain, swinging across a room and blasting someone with a spell. I don't want my adventure to be a series of rolls that add up on tests to see if advance the plot to the next point. I want my decisions in who my character is and what I do in a situation to shape the story that comes. And if I happen to miss the battle that could've happened, I don't want it to necessarily mean that we're done an hour early. I RP with a great group of friends with great imaginations and improv experience, I know I'm spoiled. But for me, D&D doesn't deliver what I'm looking for anymore. It CAN be good--great even! It depends on you and your group. But, overall, just be aware that if it's not your thing, there are a LOT of other RPGs (and other groups) out there, too. (Also, most gaming stores have places for looking for/recruiting for groups. Also try craigslist, or find a local forum or email list for the same, see who's recruiting, or also looking for a group, etc.)

Quote from: KatieHal on September 19, 2012, 12:27:13 PMI'd say at least Chaotic Good. As for the stairs, he clearly rolled a 1 there ad fumbled Hm...maybe he's a multi-class character. Fighter-Thief? Guybrush took the prestige class of Dashing Swordsman.
