Rules Lawyer!

Posted by Spat on March 20, 2011 in Reviews, RPG |

Well, it’s Sunday.  And for me and my crew, that’s DnD Day!

For anyone who’s been keeping track, they’re up to the 4th Edition of Dungeons and Dragons these days.  Aside from still having Wizards, Rogues, Elves, Fighters and Paladins as character options, the game looks nothing like it’s old school, first edition Gygax ancestor.

But it still is fun!

After releasing a bunch of Rule Books for the game, and then releasing pages upon pages of Errata (corrections and changes) for those books, Wizards of the Coast (the new ruler of the DnD world) have released one book to rule them all.  The Rules Compendium!

Rules CompendiumNow I have one repository for all the rules right there in my grubby hands!

So when my DM tells me that the Gnoll Barbarian can attack me from around a corner, I can quickly find the Line of Effect Rules (I added little tabs to all the important rules) and shove them in his face!  Lawyered!

Maybe there is something to be said about the old days when players barely even knew the rules…

Anyway, one book, with all the rules at your Cheetos stained fingertips.  All you need now is the 30 pages of Rules Compendium Errata, and you’re good to go!
