Everything old is psionic again: Dark Sun setting for D&D 4e in ’10

Yeppers. As the linked interview notes, Dark Sun has much more distinctive flavor than a lot of the other settings WotC could have revived. It sounds like a considerable number of crunchy bits will be distinctive to this book as well.

Plenty of other D&D tidbits have been announced, including one that caught my eye: D&D Heroscape for a February release. We’ll bring you more on that one when we can. Also a Ravenloft board game for next Gen Con – it’s a bit curious that WotC didn’t start doing board games based on D&D-related properties sooner.

  1. Actually, they did. There was the D&D Adventure Game (with an expansion) which was put out by WotC but then they decided to only release it in Europe. From all accounts, it was pretty decent too. Remember a few years back when WotC did a “webstore only” deal where you could buy the last copies of these?

    And “D&D Heroscape” just confirms everyone who was yelling about how 4E D&D became a board game.

    Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got a 100+ meg PDF of Pathfinder to read this weekend.

    This statement confirms everyone who finds that the 4E-is-a-board-game ranting sounds less logical every day…
