HAha. It's not that difficult for the most part. Everything revolves around your d20 and making checks.

Be glad it's not Warhammer, Ari. Or even the earlier D&D rules, as there is more math involved.

And that's just the starter set. Have even you picked up the Player's Handbook, DM Guide, or the Monster Manual?

Yah, if that was overwhelming, you'll be immediately turn off from the Player's Manual. It's awesome but it goes into A LOT of details.

For D&D. The starter sets are perfect to get a group going.

Wired has a step by step procedure on how to use Wizards of the Coast Character Builder.

I finally picked up the 4.0 Player's Handbook for $23.00. Score! Now if only Wizards could stop picking their ass for a moment and work on their online module...

Sir, people have issues with how to use Amazon. I'm just trying to get people to use the program in the first place.

And if you're really interested in doing a campaign online; just get people in that have webcams, Skype, and a mic. Simple as shit.

Haha. Simple for us, yes. Simple for others, not so much. We could totally do that though. The bro and I talked about when we first got together.

In the older versions that would be easier, but seriously, 4.0 is a pain in the ass without the minis.

Fellow nerds/Podcaustians, go out and get yourself a webcam. Most decent ones will range about $50 or under and will also be equipped with a mic and stereo. And Skype is easy to set up and install. Do this and and do it soon. I want to play some D&D, damnit.
