    Lets all hope they don't pull a Beck... get into a serious thing, and forget how it ends, resulting in 30 minutes of washboard playing.

    @SlyLupin We're still poking it ;-) Post EE's I think we'll have to re-tool a new engine and move up to the new rules.

    Oh goody, the new rules. I knew that would be the case but somehow I was still hoping against it.

    Maybe he means 3E or 3.5E? :D

    I haven't heard great things about 4th. Is 5th alright?

    I kinda like the idea, personally. As long as it is the top down look with pausing I'm down. None of that Neverwinter Nights stuff. I wouldn't even mind turn-based stuff if done correctly.

    5th looks better than my glances at 4th, but still less free/open than 3.x was.

    I think 5th is pretty good, but frankly I'm not qualified to say. There was a thread.... I can't find it though. Does anyone remember what the thread with the link to the 5E overview was called?

    Ulcaster's school of mutants is now running with a jar of almonds.

    Cool!

    Oh, by the by... if anyone here likes turn-based combat, 4th edition is prettymuch the BEST in terms of making creative use of the battlefield. I am the first to admit that 4th edition has a lot of problems, but it was always, to my mind, the one that would best suit a computer/video game. No joke, I would love a 4th edition video game. The thing I love about 3rd/3.5 edition would never get into a computer game... the enormous amount of customization possible through the many, many books. Flaws, alternate rules, fat piles of feats and spells, etc. A game has limits, and licensing issues. Could I play a shadowcaster in a 3.5 game? A hexblade? A samurai? Would they get the same rules support if they were in the game? Can I take Dragon Magazine feats? If the answer here is no, and we're using a limited set of 3.5 rules... I'd be happier with 4th edition when it comes to a video game.
