I've been out of the dnd loop for over a year, being off in Korea teaching, so I'm behind on the products. I used to go check out a good bookstore/gaming store to see what new books were coming out, but that has closed since I left. So now i'm looking for something to help me figure out what books I want to order before actually place the order. I'm wary of PHB II and DMG II....is it the same thing with added crap from previous books and tossed into a washer and put on spin?....ooooo look new book, must buy. shiny!
I found MM III disappointing (I think) so i'm curious if MM IV is the same.
