So what's the opinion on this new cost efficient version of D&D? Any of you Old School Gamers have any interest in it at all? After looking at a few examples it appears to be the very same ol 4th edition just presented in a different format. I still see many 4th edition "purist" especially the ones I know freaking and fuming about the whole thing. I kinda like the small 6 x 9 inch booklets idea.
Possibly (but unlikely due to life and time constraints) one day I will try to write my RPG that is a mix of the old and new school.
Old school simplicity with the new school options.
Let's face it some of the rule restrictions and such in the world of old school gaming is just stupid. Level Limits being the most and racial class restrictions as well.
In the new school it's monster stats that are as long and complicated as character stats, too many hit points, too much math, way too many rules.
Someone needs to mend these with a really cool game that mixes the old and new in a simple way.
It might just be me (or somebody else with time and a life).
