4Ward/FrankenFourth: Picking The Pieces

My initial goal for 4Ward/FrankenFourth was to take 4th Edition Dungeons & Dragons, strip out the redundant math, and convoluted character creation, character advancement, and monsters, and tweak other parts like hit points and magic so that they made more sense.
