I play a lot of D&D, and spend a lot of time thinking about D&D. Lately I've been playing and running 4e conversions of 2e and older mods. It's been a hell of a lot of fun, and also a good challenge to capture the flavor of the original mod and highlight the best parts of the new mechanics.
I'm going to put down some of my thoughts on this (and other) D&D-related topics here. Maybe other people will have something to learn or something to add. Perhaps no one else will read this.
Here goes anyway.
