Why, start all over in 4e, of course!
I’m not running the game, this time. Christine (Nox) has volunteered to do so. Wish her luck, as she’s got quite a party to contend with.
Christine has tried to run 3.5e games in the past, but we always switched back after a few sessions. She can give her own reasons why, but it tended to center around not being comfortable enough with her own rules knowledge to make rulings. (I have always been the rules whore for the group, so I had an easy time coming up with consistant rulings that were fairly in line with the actual rules. I think that she was trying to do the same, which was probably a mistake. My style of GMing doesn’t have to be hers, by any means. But I digress.)
Anyways, her general feeling is that she will be a lot more comfortable running 4e than 3.5e. And I believe her. In the few short test sessions we played before the campaign started, she was already as familiar and comfortable with the 4e rules as I had ever seen her with 3.5e.
This is one of the reasons I love 4e.
But I’ll let her tell you all about the game, and how she’s doing (well, by the way). But right now?
You wanna hear about my Paladin?
Well, some of you may have noticed the site layout change. If not, go look. I’ll wait.
