The 4th Edition of Dungeons & Dragons

Noticed how ridiculously busy the DnD servers of Wizards of the Coast have recently been? Well, so have I, and frankly believe it all has to do with the announcement of the 4th edition of the Dungeons & Dragons RPG that will debut in May 2008. This stunningly unexpected move -only a few years after D&D 3.5- will probably deeply shock gamers, feature some less complicated but more AD&D-ish mechanics, come in colourful books and rely heavily on the hallowed d20.

Expect the first demo/preview booklets in a few months, hold your breath in anticipation of some complimentary pre-painted plastic miniatures (eurk) and -why not- have a look at the history of the D&D evolution. Remember, this was the RPG that started it all and the 4th edition has been officially announced.

[UPDATE] And here are two very enlightening videos to ..err.. enlighten you:
