Yep, way too dumbed down. 3.5 is way more in depth, 3.5 ftw!! :P :P
If D&D players say poo like "it seems pretty chill" then maybe it is too nerdy after all! lol.
I`ll bet real money you play a as paladin.
You don`t *need* anything else. Some of it is just cool.As for extra content, there`s this little thing called "homebrew", which basically means you can do it yourself. You can recreate anything in any of the expansions in your own head. Change rules. Change characters. Create your own settings, monsters, classes, feats, spells, skills, items, whatever.
I ran a campaign for a year and a half without hardly ever referencing a book. Most of it was from my head. (I do own alot of the books, so occasionally if I was feeling lazy, I`d throw in some monster I liked the idea of).
Except for the guy dressed up as a wizard. He`s win.
So false. I`ve gotten I`ve gotten seven beautiful ladies to play D&D and two of them touched my magic.
Oh, and one non-legal build I made.Basically Skulk with Shadowdancer as a base class instead of a prestige. Progression is identical, with epic shadowdancer after level 10 to round out the class.
Only change is throwing out multiple shadows for a single greater shadow with continued progression as previously.
Apart from that: Horizon Walker and Exemplar.
Basically a hide/move silently skill monkey.
The official website describes D&D as "an imaginative, social experience that engages players in a rich fantasy world filled with larger-than-life heroes, deadly monsters, and diverse settings. As a hobby game, D&D is an ongoing activity to which players might devote hours of their time much like a weekly poker game, getting together with friends on a regular basis for weeks, months, or even years."

It`s a way to have fun with friends, just like any other game.
Your impression of D&D is basically wrong, though understandable since you`ve never played it. You don`t have to reference everything from a book (players know the rules) and very little of it is on paper. Most of it is in your mind. So it isn`t simple or slow.
It`s similar in one way to reading a book - people who don`t do it by choice (or who lack either the intellect or the imagination to do it) often think it`s boring.
Although it`s more like acting in a play that is partly improvised as you perform it than it`s like reading a book.
Maybe you`d find it lacking in fun anyway, but it isn`t what you think it is.
That would be assault.
Anyway... I`ve never played D&D. It doesn`t seem that fun. I mean, you`ve got to reference everything from a book. Everything is essentially on paper. Too slow and simple to be fun.
