  1. Great idea save for the onsight and no Download, thanks but no I’ll stick to the pad, pencil, and some of the orginal D&D books, plus a wealth of imagination….

  2. too little too late. wheres the virtual table top.. why am i paying a monthly fee for half a tool set, and magazines that they dont even call magazines anymore because they cant get the articles out on time or at all. essentials was broken 4.5 crap. stop making board games. no one wants your money grabbing fortune card bullshit. stop making shit for your crappy online service and make some actual tabletop rpg
    infact, fuck WoTC the DCI system is a joke. they dont support the home games. if you run a store game have fun reporting on that piece of shit website of theirs. Encounters are boring and repeat from season to season. No Mini’s? are you fucking serious? we couldnt keep them on the shelves at our store…. even after the quality started to go down hill.

    im selling my 4th stuff and going to Pathfinder. im sick of the shenanigans.

    • One of the big reasons i started playing 4.o was Critical Hit, But in the last tow months we have also gone back to 3.5. Will be Patfinding as soon as the extra cash allows.

  3. I agree with Matthew, Wizards has really screwed up, or they have been screwing up since they introduced essentials in my opinion. Anyway I liked the original off-line character builder, so I’ll keep using that and neglect renewing my subscription to the insider

    • Agreed, and I’m not even playing with anybody. I like having my character builder on the laptop that I can goof off and create characters whenever I feel like it.
