So probably been asked before but tumblr and my phone hate each other with a passion most days. What sre your thoughts about the "great dnd debate" between 3rd, 4th and now 5th editions?
5th edition is the spiritual successor to the first edition that I loved so much, so it’s my personal favorite. 3rd has too many crunchy rules that I could throw out with a fair amount of work, and 4th (which has a fantastic DMG for new DMs) was too much of a minis game with all the goddamn powers and cards and things that just got in the way of everything.
So I like 5th. It gets out of the way and lets me tell a story with my friends. But you know what? Edition Wars are boring. Everyone likes their own edition for their own reason, and nobody is forcing anyone to play a game they don’t want to play. It’s not a zero-sum situation, so you do you and play more games.
