Back in the beginning of May I had a chance to talk with Matt James, published WOTC author and webmaster of Loremaster on Power Creep in 4th Edition. We talked a lot about the issues surrounding the growth of 4e over the past three years and what DMs can do about it today. Dave Chalker was good enough to host this podcast as part of the Critical Hits podcasts. You can listen to the entire recording here:

If you're looking to keep your own game a little more balanced, stick to modern sourcebooks such as Heroes of the Fallen Lands, Heroes of the Forgotten Kingdoms, and the Heroes of Shadow. You can also pick up other tips to keep your game balanced in Sly Flourish's Dungeon Master Tips and Running Epic Tier D&D Games books. Need some good minis? Pick up a pile of D&D Miniatures from Troll and Toad before they're all gone!
