(no subject)

I was asked to write what I feel is wrong with 4th edition D&D and its just too big for a single comment, so I felt I would make a post about it. However, I understand that criticizing an RPG in an online forum is the equivalent of holding raw, uncooked meat over a fire. I'm pretty sure that what I've written conforms to the rules of the community as expressed by the moderator's rules, especially rule #4 which looks like it was added because of debates about precisely this topic.

If you don't want to read about my opinion I have put it beneath an LJ cut.
Feel free to ignore it.

Alternately here's a fairly positive review of 4th edition that I quite enjoyed reading, I think its a fair analysis and agree with everything the author says.
