Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition Release

Posted on June 8, 2008 by Matt-M-McElroy

We’ve had our review of the 4th Edition Dungeons & Dragons posted for a few days already. The review seems to be pretty popular as well. We also reported that Wizards of the Coast will be a Co-Sponsor at GenCon recently.

Flames Rising is primarily a Horror & Dark Fantasy website, but we really can’t ignore a new edition of D&D. Other sites with a bit more focus on the game have plenty of interesting discussion going on, the RPGNet D&D Forum, EN World and Story Games, just to name a few.

Initial reports have been pretty positive, some retailers are mentioning decent sales and online offers from and Noble Knight Games also seem to be in high demand.

Aside from some colorful commentary, many people seem to be enjoying the new game. There are plenty of positive threads on the forums I linked to above and some free resources on the Wizards of the Coast website.

Locally, things seemed to be hit-or-miss. I’ve seen a few reports of local games, but also a few of poor Madison game store management. This seems to be pretty standard around here. Some stores are on top of current events and new releases, others not-so-much. Still, we’ve got Grumbling Dwarf for local news, games and other cool events going on in the area.

Here at Flames Rising we are looking for more Dungeons & Dragons reviews. Drop by the Submissions Page to check out our guidelines and send in your thoughts on these new books.
