As the father of three sons, I know they are growing up to be... well... I'd like to say devastatingly handsome and charming like their old man. But of course, what I really mean is that are gawky and awkward and geeky, just like me.
So today I came to a decision: it's time to teach them DnD.
But, like any geek, I'm faced with a terrible choice. Do I teach them the DnD of my own precious childhood, the fabulous, game-of-a-thousand-books 2nd edition? Or do I make the leap and invest in the 4th edition, which I will have to learn along with them?
On the one hand: nostalgia. On the other hand: keeping up with the current trends.
Oh first world problems...
In any case, I'll be looking to buy the books soon, once I decide which decade I want to live in. I look forward to when one of them roll's his first natural 20 and we can all scream "critical hit". Assuming that's still a critical hit. Is it?
Sigh... so much to learn...
