    I've played all incarnations of D&D as well, but it seems the group I play with has settled nicely in 3.5 and wont get out until we are poked with a very large stick and that just doesn't seem to be happening anytime soon. Personally I'd like to play more Exalted and Vampire (without the LARP, no offense to any LARPers).

    I bet it does, I do believe however that I still remember most of the 3.5 rules, but I'm glad I only have to play 4e now

    I haven't made the group to make a separate mapping area for 4e players, GOD NO! I believe in the common community.
    I was curious as too how many 4e players there were in here and who they were - thats all. And in my opinion you can play 4e on any old map - only with a few added details it greatly enhances the experience.

    In my opinion 4e plays more as a tactial board game than a RPG (not that there is anything wrong with that). Hence given all my RP is pbp, it doesn't really appeal, hence I play a mixture of 3.5 and pathfinder

    I will absolutely agree that there are a lot more tactics to combat in 4e - but isn't combat tactics ... I feel its so much more fun than stepping up to an enemy and exchanging blows until someone goes down. And in addition to that people tend to focus on 4e is = boardgame or computergame. But yes, the combat has changed, but the roleplayings stays the same like in all games - good or bad rules. It is the GM/Players that define a game - not rules

    Oh, good deal then. At first I was confused by the "join up" membership thingy and was thinking, hey man, just cuz I don't play it doesn't mean I don't want to have an excuse to make more maps

    I've been running a very sporadic 4e game for about a year now, and I'm playing in IG's PbP on EN World. That one is actually moving more quickly than I had anticipated. When we're on the ball, it's not much slower than the Rifts game I used to run on an old BBS. It will probably slow down as the encounters get more complex, of course, but I'm still pleasantly surprised at the pace. 4e is fun, but it's got some peculiar limitations on character builds that I don't care for.

    I like to jump from system to system, though. In the past four years, I've played Rolemaster, Wheel of Time, World of Darkness, Alternity, Traveler, Unknown Armies, 4e, 3.5, Sidewinder, Star Wars d6, and Ninjas & Superspies.

    okay - I'm totally lost here... PbP, EN, BBS ... I have a guess on BBS being a bulletin board thing?

    En world is one of the bigger forum sites out there for 4E.

    PbP is play by post.

    Hope that helps
