Draconic Translator The D&D Boss Fight (Part 1) | The Angry DM: D&D Advice with Attitude When 4th Edition first came out, I wanted to do three things to show my party that we weren’t in Kansas anymore. First, I wanted to have a skill challenge. Second, I wanted a battle with a lot of minions. Third, I wanted a fight with a dragon.
