Ok, for months I have problems with my Local Gaming Store, which is becoming my FLGS again.
I ran into the owners yesterday at the grocery store and got some very intersting comments. I asked if there were any 4e games locally, that I might sit in on for a try at it. And much to my surprise they said that no one they knew of was actually running a 4e game yet. One guy was planning a game after GenCon, though. They did sell a lot of 4e books, but no one is really playing yet. Feelings are mixed.
I asked if I might demo a Pathfinder game after the Beta rules come out, and they were VERY enthusiastic about it.
One of the owners had said 4e was the first D&D product that excited him since 2nd Edition (go figure). However, he is now stealing things back from 3.x and plans on creating a home brew stew of 3.x, 3.P and 4e. He said that Pathfinder seems to be taking the best of the best and making the most interesting RPG yet.
I plan on running the Rise of the Runelords AP with the Beta Rules. I'll also be encouraging the Pathfinder Society.
