It is reasonably lively. A fairly broad spectrum of older gaming forums, and a very active general nonsense forum. There was a good deal of input from some of the big names in D&D, not sure if they are still active.

It's focused on play much more than collecting.  For that, it's probably one of the better forums.

For active gameplay DF is a very good forum. All the news and discussions for all edditions of D&D as well as C&C and other minor OD&D clones.

Specifically for DMs and taylored towards design and DMing, Knights and Knaves has a great deal to offer, but it's a slower thread and you need to read back through the threads to get some really good ideas and information.

Acaeum is the only place to go if you're a collector, or if you're just interested in knowing what's what, the history behind it, what's for sale, what's worth buying, and what's worth money.

There are a stack of other minor boards dotted around, but those are the active ones.

I'll disagree:  DF is fine for a lot of general rules Qs and also for some good creative input and such, but I find the quality and usefulness of the discussion at the Knights & Knaves Alehouse to be more helpful than DF.  Which isn't to say that DF isn't a fine place at all, just that I find K&K better.

If you enjoy 23 pages of crap about dual-classing by a guy obviously trolling, DF is for you!!!  :lol:

I kid, I kid.

K&K is great but there is very little activity. Days can go by without useful posts.

The thing with DF is that there are good ideas buried in a lot of those threads - lots of little bits of clever that neatly house rule something.

I'm not saying there aren't days where it's just drek... but at least there is a chance.

The problem with DF is that you have to wade through a sea of crap to try to find the bits of good information. On one or two threads you may have nore luck that the majority, but how many of us have the time to read all that crap?

At least K&K is reletively concise and narrow in scope. Like Acaeum is, we pretty much keep focused and on topic here. DF just isn't like that. At least that's my impression of the site.

I like DF for the 1st Ed stuff and mods being posted, with 2 new low level ones recently, but I don't bother with the forums.

And thanks for telling me about K&K Alehouse, like I need to spend more time on!  :lol:  :wink:

Here's another focused forum with a high signal-to-noise ratio:

http://odd74.proboards.com/index.cgi

Original D&D Discussion.

This one is focused on the original set (aka OD&D). I like this forum and K&K because they each have a dedicated Holmes Basic forum (unlike Dragonsfoot, which lumps Holmes and OD&D in with Classic).

That's pretty much my take on DF.

So these are going to be as downloads--L4, L5, and a possible (!) L6--only, or will they be published like the others in the series?

They are going to be downloads. I'm sure there are places to have it done "professionally".

Based on my last discussion with Len about this, that didn't seem likely, alas.

Knowing the go-getters here (and elsewhere) in the hobby, I'm sure we'll see these pretty soon.  I might get one done myself just for fun.....

I'm sure I could wade through the Dragonsfoot chatter on this, but does this one have any relation to L1 - L3? Other than being set on Lendore Isle, presumably... I'll likely take a look, but if it is a sequel to L3 (which I do not own) in any way, that would be a slight turnoff. I'm guessing it's not, since as I understand it the end product had little relation to Mr. Lakofka's original manuscript for the module.

Just place names.  No sequel. Truthfully none of the L-modules had much of a connection to each other but common setting.
