    Ok, that's pretty bad *** as far as content creation tools go.
    Vanillawareís 2D is, once again, shaming their competitorís 3D. Itís like, what are you even doing with your extra D, jerks? Maybe we should hold that extra D in reserve for you, like a trust, until you are ready. - Tycho, Penny Arcade

    I have been following this title since announcement, and overall I am hesitant.

    The foundry looks awesome and I think it is great that players can do a lot of work themselves, as portrayed by the STO foundry.

    My concern is the game itself. The devs have stated that they are making the truest dnd experience out there in video game format. From what I have seen and read so far.... the outcome is doubtful, as it is going to be lacking a lot of dnd fundamentals out the gate. Perhaps additional content will be forthcoming as well more classes and races. Who knows, but as is... I don't see a "true dnd experience."

    Being able to custom make content is great, but with a limited base to work with... you can't make whats not already in the game engine.

    Plus, 4th edition rule set.... there was the first mistake that got the ball rolling in the wrong direction.

    There is nothing wrong with 4th Edition rule set. I'ts actually a pretty decent ruleset and well designed especially for beginning players, or those who have not played in a long time (like 2nd).
