Fifth Edition Blitz
Just a quick post, hard at work on the next review!
The buzz is back on D&D now, with the new fifth edition on the horizon. I've signed up to play-test along with MGA, and I hope that I'm pleasantly surprised. My fervent hope is that they took notes on all of what has made Pathfinder a success in comparison to 4e, and a return of the Open Gaming License (OGL). I feel its really Wizards last real chance to win back the customer base, so I wish them luck in the process. Extensive play-testing with existing groups seems a must.
I wanted to do a whole expose on this, and it may happen if I playtest. However, as is often the case, someone did it faster and more concisely. Here is the link: http://robin-d-laws.blogspot.com/2012/01/d-wish-list.html
Nicely said Robin Laws.
In other news the MGA is planning a brief one-shot of Pathfinder, which I'll make available as soon as I can after we run it. For many of us, its the closest thing we've done to 3.5 in a long time, but we're looking forward to it!
