Introduction: why another blog on D&D

I'm an avid gamer, and a longtime Dungeons & Dragons fan. I think its latest incarnation, D&D 4e, is not only the best one to date, but one of the best games out there. Yet, as much as I enjoy it, I know there is still much room to improve. That's why I've decided to write this blog.

My goal, my Main Quest if you prefer, will be to take a deep look at every aspect of the game's rules, identifying potential issues and providing alternate rulings, when appropiate. It is not my intention to implement radical changes - I really like the game as is, after all, and I intend to preserve as much of it as possible. Rather, I'll propose a number of relatively small tweaks: a class feature here, a couple of powers there, a different take on a skill, or a more balanced implementation of a problematic magic item.

Of course, I won't limit myself to rules fixes. I regularly come up with design ideas for new class powers, feats or monsters, and I'll share them here. You will also find reviews of D&D supplements, adventures and other releases, as well as ocassional discussion on other games. Finally, feel free to suggest any D&D or gaming related topic that you'd like to see covered. I don't promise I'll attend to all petitions, but I'll do my best.
