And the beat goes on as the Big D&D Sale continues at DriveThruRPG. Today, the ultimate collection for the 4th Edition of the World’s Most Popular Roleplaying Game. Though easily the most controversial and vociferously reviled version in some corners, D&D 4e is in actuality a very enjoyable game. The problem for many is that is far less about roleplaying than it is about tactical gameplay in a tabletop environment that feels very much like an MMO simulation.
If you’ve never really looked at the rules, they’re worth your time – if for no other reason than to see where some of those nifty changes you’ve noted in 5e come from. At a $4.95 price point, now’s a great time to add it to the digital library.
This handy and comprehensive Dungeons & Dragons book is intended as a quick rules reference. It contains the complete core rules for the 4th Edition Dungeons & Dragons Fantasy Roleplaying Game.
In addition to providing an overview of the game and how it’s played, this book presents the core rules in a format that is easily referenced during a game. It includes information on level advancement, combat, experience points, treasure, skills, equipment, and more.
Product History – The 320-page Rules Compendium (2010) is a largely “fluff-free” book. That makes it lousy bedtime reading perhaps, unless you’re a rules enthusiast, but regardless, it’s a superb in-game reference. With a detailed table of contents and index, well-defined chapters and rules organization, and plenty of clear examples, this one book acts as a fast and useful rules reference that encompasses the rules content of multiple other 4e books.
