Recently we posted about the WotC errata for Magic Missile. Since then there has been a lot of discussion about why the change was made – was it for balancing purposes, nostalgia or in preparation for the release of the Red Box? We thought it would make a great point of discussion for our first podcast. Please join us as we talk about the errata and the implications of the changes.

[In the discussion during the podcast we refer to Chris Sim’s article “Dice Heresy” about using 3d6 instead of a d20 for attack rolls in D&D4e. At the time, we couldn’t remember his name (sorry Chris!) and we promised to include a link to the article. Sadly, all references to the article seem to be returning 404’s, so we can’t link to it. But we’d still like to give Chris the credit for the idea.]
