    Wizards recently proclaimed that 4th Edition is at the Printer!, and we are now only a little over two months away from the June 6th release date. I'm curious, with all of the information we've heard over the last many months, how many D&D players out there plan on updating to the new version. Was your decision to buy or not buy changed since the original announcement?

    I will purchase the books simply because I collect RPGs.

    I imagine it will be a long time before I actually run a 4e game or participate in one. Our group currently has no plans on starting a 4e game.

    We just found out we've got another gamer in development, be another 8 months before release. There isn't a prayer that I'll have ANY money to buy anything 4th edition in the near, or FAR future, or any other games for that matter.

    Honestly I'd rather play FATE, BRP, or nearly anything but D&D. Since D&D is The Most Popular RPG (tm), though, I've preordered the PHB ... just in case I end up in a D&D game. Plus, I'm a little curious.

    Now, I MAY get some of the monster guides and such. There are just tooooo many simpler and easier games systems to run. My old champaigne world will prety much stay as it is.

    I cannot say for sure if I will upgrade to 4th edition or when. I have some concerns about some changes they have made in the name of "class balance," but I will reserve my final judgment until I have read the books and seen the rules in action. I'll pre-order the books, but I doubt I'll switch my current campaign over, since there is supposedly no direct translation between the editions. Besides, I currently enjoy a diverse bestiary of baddies from five Monster Manuals and dozens of supplements that I can throw up against my ragtag band of adventures. I don't think "over 300" monsters from the 4e Monster Manual are going to cut it for me.

    I am kind of interested in doing a post Spellfire Plague Forgotten Realms game though, so I may give it a go when the new Forgotten Realms campaign setting comes out in August.

    Let's see...I just "upgraded" to 3.5 in Sept. 07, and there's a 4th edition coming out? I haven't even got a character past 3rd level or DMed yet! Curses! Foiled Again! (I'll have to think about it)

    I've pre-ordered my books and eagerly await the Amazon box that will bring my 4e books.

    I've actually written a new campaign that places Gnomes as one of the key bad guys without even realizing their new status as monsters.

    I like many of the announced changes to the system but there are a few things I have kept from 2e and will keep from 3.5 e.

    For the price that the books will cost, it will probably take awhile to get them. Also, want to make sure that the 4.5 thing doesn't happen like with 3.0 and 3.5. Wouldn't mind eventually being able to have them though, since I seem to think that eventually will be the version of choice for play.

    I'm going to buy them when they come out, and my next campaign will be under the 4E rules. I have personal friends who have had their hands on the system and I trust their positive reviews. So I look forward to the system as it's coming.

    Plus, their design conceits, and things like the 'points of light' concept radiate well with the sort of game I like to run, so I'm hoping this means it will be more or less 'my style of game' from the system level. Call me hopeful, I am.

    I started on 2ed and quickly changed over to 3.0 and then moved into 3.5 only to throw up my hands in disgust over what I thought to be too many rules that made little sense to me but much cents to the TSR (or who ever). 4.0 is, however, looking like it might be more like how I run a game. Therefore I may purchase the game for the ideas it promises. But I am unlikely going to change my campaign just to change to the latest and greatest product of WotC, that would be dumb. IMNTBHO

    I might buy the books, but probably won't be running it for my next campaign. I'm leaning towards Basic Role-Playing, which is put out by Chaosium. I've always liked the RuneQuest system and that's Basic Role-Playing, plus they're in the process of updating the rules so when the new version comes out, I'll buy it and start converting my 3.5 game back into that system.

    I may flip through the things but unless the thing is a significant improvement such as "Spells work off a mana point system" or something, I'll probably pass on it.
