Hi, Ive just begun roleplaying with a couple of my friends and we are all newbs. We decided we'd start off with the new Red Box from the essentials line and are now wondering what to move onto. I posted a previous thread asking that exact question, What should I buy next? And I got a lot of of very helpful answers, with the main one being that me and my friends should probably buy a mixture of the essentials line and 4e, but Im starting to wonder if this is feasible for new players who dont really understand many of the rules. Will the two editions mixed together still be easy to understand and play or do you have to have prior knowledge to play this way? And on a side note, will the 4e and essentials stuff make reference to other 4e or essentials books we may not have purchased , instead buying the other version? Any advice would be helpful.
