For 4th Edition D&D DM's - For every four hours you spend gaming, how long do you prepare? (15 respondents):With such a limited sample, it's hard to put too much stock in these results, but if they are to be believed, then at this early stage 4E DM's are already enjoying one of the design goals of the newest edition: reduced prep time. For myself, I can certainly say this is the case.
No hours - wing and a prayer - 13%
Up to 1 hour - 46%
Up to 2 hours - 26%
Up to 3 hours - 13%
More - 0%
For the next poll I'm going all Ironside on your asses and reducing things down to a simple yes or no answer. There's been quite a lot of talk on-line about how the 4E powers (and their associated fluff) can make it harder for narrative-minded DM's to describe an attack/stunt/scene effectively, because the descriptions are too detailed, too much of a strait-jacket for the imagination. Do you agree?
