DnD Next (v5) Play-Test

We have good interest to run a couple of groups for play-testing the new DnD - DnD "Next", or version 5.

Preference among the current crop of attendees seems to be to run this every other Wednesday.

Please Sign Up at www.DnDNext.com and download the playtest packet.

We'll bring along printouts of pre-generated characters at the party's level, so new folk are able to jump right in.  We're also mixing up the DM from session to session, so we get a mix of both DM-styles and play-experience during the test.

    Hi All,
    One of my workers is stuck without backup on a project out in the Hamptons, so I might not make it or make it late tonight. I'll try to send updates as I get them.

    Thanks.

      I'm running late, about 20 mins. Getting a reminder of how crappy Route 10 is :(

    I looked at it and the only change is the addition of the Barbarian and a few clarifications for the cleric and wizard. Shouldn't affect us.

    But, I think there's another issue, not big, but the two newest players and I are using the more recent characters from the December which uses a skill die. The DCs for these guys are pretty different, so its just something to be aware of.

      Ian - I agree. After tonight's session, everyone should migrate to using the latest playtest packet which was released yesterday. Players can keep their PC's, just level them up using the new rules.

      I note a couple of other small canges mentioned, eg how initiative is factored. Of course, if anyone wants to roll a barbarian, that could be cool.

    Hey Ian - I noticed that the RSVP's for this event close at 6 pm the day before. Can that be changed going forward?

    Thanks!

    January 30, 2013

    • Ian S

      Yes we can change the RSVP close-time

    Sorry, I won't be able to make it either.

    January 30, 2013

  • Mark S.

    Also, given the weather, I might not be able to make it tonight (again). I will keep everyone posted.

    January 30, 2013

    Just an FYI - the new iteration of the playtest packet was released today. I probably will not have time to print it out and read it before tomorrow night. How does everybody else feel about using it?

      Was there any major changes to it?
