I agree Adam! It was very smart on their part to usher in the new release! i was given a copy to chekc out and have since bought the core rules set. I like the system better than 3.x series. It's easier to get players going in a game! SOme say that WotC dumbed it down...but I think its just more streamlined with more emphisis on game play and LESS on nit-picky stuff! Its the most excited I have been to play since playing heavily back in the early 80's!
