Neuroglyph really hit the nail on the head, and I told him so. I’ve mentioned why here before.
I guess I’m so focused on this because I really think D&D 4e is an extremely solid system. A lot of the things I hear a lot of players complain about (when they don’t say some vacuous argument like “you can’t roleplay in 4e”) aren’t bugs, but features to me.
