Check out this new article Wizards of the Coast posted recently:

Spotlight Interview - Rules Compendium (http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/4spot/20071005a)

Antimagic, polymorphing, turning undead, gaze attacks, incorporeality, and the perils of grappling trollsÖ. This month, we speak with R&D's Chris Sims about how the latest sourcebook helps make better sense of the wealth of game information.

I can't wait for this to come out. Most of the groups I've played in had something from every supplement out there and the DM had to have print-outs and stuff to keep track. Hopefully this book will solve most, if not all, of our rule problems. I find myself wondering if I found a rule in one book or another and have to spend a few minutes looking stuff up between all the books at the table.

I was kind of flabbergasted when I saw this. My thought was, "They're putting this out NOW?" Still, if 4.0 bites this will be useful in continuing 3.5. I might pick it up.

They are still putting out 3.5 books until 2009 and the new stuff is supposed to be 4.0 friendly.

There will always be those people who are happy sticking to whatever edition they are currently playing so books like this will still have good circulation. I plan on picking this up and will also get 4.0 when it comes out.

Just to be clear so that no one buys this thinking it is going to be a compatible product with 4th edition, this is an excerpt from the Spotlight Interview (http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/4spot/20071005a) linked above.


Rules Compendium is aimed at those who want a concise rules reference for 3E. Itís intended for people who might continue a 3E campaign until or even after 4E comes out. Those people deserve a book thatíll be authoritative and help lighten the load at a game session.

I've been happy with the Compendium series and hopefully a Class Compendium will be forthcoming for 3E or at least in a few years for 4E.

Although it will come in multiple volumes for 3E, hopefully by fighter, wizard, et cetera style breakup.

Eh... I'd rather not spend the money for a book that re-lists information I already have. It's no trouble to me to bring every supplement related to my character to a game, as well as those being borrowed by other players. Scans of the relative pages work too.

My vote? Moneymaker for WotC, another item for ultra-completists.

There is also all the classes from the last seven years of Dragon magazines as well as the supplements.

Some of us haven't bought every book under the sun that comes out.

So this book will actually save me some money... get the benefits of a compilation despite having not much more than the core.
