First why are these guys so confused during battles? I don't think their using Mini's or pogs or anything to show where people are during fights. Im not a DnD player I play pathfinder, but don't you use a game mat in both games? I bought the DnD 4th edition beginner Red box and it came with maps. Second why do they never role for initiative? Or am I missing something completely?
It's been awhile since I played 4.5, so I can't remember how inititive works, but you can play the game without minis. The way the game is designed is that they want you to use them, but you totally don't have to.
