Dungeons & Dragons Fourth Edition Announced

The Wizards of the Coast have announced a new, fourth edition of the quīnta essentia roleplaying game Dungeons & Dragons. Some of my friends and I play D&D on a weekly basis (more or less), using the 3.5 edition rules.

I find the foundation of the current rules — the concept of the “difficulty check” — to be good for relative speed and ease of use, but there is a lot of room for improvement.  Personally, I’m more of an old school RPer: give me a dungeon full of monsters, traps, puzzles, and treasure and I’m happy.  I’d like to see more tables for randomly generating information and better modifier lists for skill checks.

Anyway, the official site is down, so I’ll have to scrounge around a bit to see if I can find some more information on this new edition to see if any details have been given.
