Dungeons & Dragons blasted it's way into the gaming scene introducing an entire new way of playing around. Thereby trailblazing ahead for many fine roleplay games to follow. It ended up being less than the most innovatiove story-game out there. But now with d&d next it seems to be back as an industry innovator as well as the sovereign king of F20*. With a blend of streamlined mechanics and campfire narratives, d&d offers a unique play experience, that's best sprinkled with loads of imagination, combat and exploration. As a gamer that's fallen in love with some of the roleplay games that followed from d&d's conception: Call of Cthulhu, Warhammer Fantasy, World of Darkness, Trinity Universe, Delta Green, Trail of Cthulhu, Warhammer 40K & Chronicles of Darkness. It's a pleasure to find a new edition that brings back the charm of "the red box set", that in my eyes seems to be the soul of Dungeons & Dragons.
