D&D 4th ed. to ship in 2008

Wizards of the Coast just announced that D&D 4th edition will come out in 2008.

So it looks like that's going to mark the end of my run of keeping current with D&D. I just don't have the time & opportunity to play much anymore, and with a kid on the way, there's no way I'll be able to afford to buy all new core rulebooks again.

I'm keeping all of my 1st, 2nd, Rev. 2nd, 3rd, and 3.5th ed. rulebooks, so I can keep playing & writing (and reminiscing) for as long as I can find time & other interested players, but that's only going to get harder as time goes on.

(Maybe when I have a kid(s) old enough to play it themselves things could change, but at the rate WotC is going, they'll probably be up to 5th or 6th edition by then, so there's really no point in trying to keep up for now.)

Talk about "end of an era"; I guess it's a good thing I stopped posting the D&D FAQ when I did...
