LOL! I was going to say "succinct"!

I know that is a reference (allusion?) but I can't remember to what (review of some musical piece). Now it is driving me crazy. I can half hear it at the back of my brain!

Amadeus. The Emperor of Austria's observation of Mozart's music.

Thank you! My brain was leaning in that direction, but I wasn't quite there yet.

Now I am trying to discern how exactly the allusion applies in this case!

4e made the game too crunchy, and too complicated. Each player has several options in any given round, and many of those options will impose modifiers on the movement, rolls, saves, or AC of themselves, allies, and opponents. It's a book-keeping nightmare!

*nod*

I have a copy of the PHB, but I still haven't had a chance to look it over for myself - don't see the point of going in to it too deeply until I have a game to worry about :) The few people I know who have played it says it runs really smoothly, but that was, I think, fairly low level stuff and for only an encounter or two to see how it went.

Your assessment is less encouraging.

Well, I haven't actually run it - this is just based on reading the manual. So I might be wrong - it could go smooth. But it seemed dizzyingly, and unnecessarily complex to me.

I'm trying to withhold (further) judgment until I can read or play it myself!

However this is an amusing and tangentially relevant link</> :)
