D&D 5th Edition Announced — 4 Comments

  1. I have sworn off WotC D&D for good. The boycott started 01-01-12.

    Vote NO to 5e.

    (good to see your post…I haven't heard back from you after my email…hope all is well)

  2. I have some hope that 5E will be a better game than 4E, but I will not be an early adopter. 4E turned me right off and sent me running back to my AD&D roots so fast it made my head spin. We'll see how the playtest goes. At least that aspect of 5E seems like a step in the right direction. It's almost like an olive-branch to disgruntled players everywhere.

  3. @ADD Grognard: No reply because there's no news to report. I written about the problem you mentioned and haven't heard a thing back. However, since my name was fortunately stripped off of it, I find it hard to care enough to spend a lot of time on the issue. I ceased feeling like I needed to enforce WOTC copyrights for them when they pulled PDFs of older editions.

    @Chris: I hope 5E will be better than 3.5 and 4E, but I don't think I'll place any bets on that. As for the open playtest, I fear it will just be a marketing ploy like the Pathfinder open playtest was. I really hope I'm wrong on that issue as open playtesting can catch a lot of issues. Microlite74 is much better for ideas and comments from those who playtested it, for example.
