I just joined the site to say thank you for this preview. As a longtime gamer, but one that skipped 3.0/3.5, I am very much looking forward to this box set.
It is pretty daunting looking at all of the huge books on the shelf now this will ease us in to the game. That and I've been enamored with box sets since I was 8 and my Brother and I cracked open our very first Moldvay Basic Set.
I was especially happy to see the part about the counters. I was wondering if there would be more pc worthy counters than the four pregens. Will all of the Iconics be represented on sheet of counters?
