DnD Next (v5) Play-Test

March 2013 update: Group size capped at 6 (5+GM), but if 4 more Wait-list I'll create an ad-hoc 2nd group and reassign players. Please note the group you'll be in - group2 will run near the front of the store. Any questions or feedback, please email me. Ian

 

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

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.

    Last nights game ran well. Lots of thinking & determining how to get somethings done. Where do we go from here? Who will continue the module or do we start another ? isnt the next module set for 10+ level?
    I would love to DM but I am still not up to speed on the rules. Not enough time in the day for what I got to get done to read them all thu

      I've not noticed many challenges, other than considering more options during an encounter (e.g. level 1: swing an Axe; level 7: swing an axe or use a feat?)

      BTW, this is partly a symptom of jumping from 3 to 7. Steadier leveling means the players get more time to become accustomed to the pros and cons of their new "stuff". So in that context, a jump to 10 would also slow things down a little. Not sure about anyone else, but I'd not have a problem with this.

      Yea what is the ending since we didn't finish unless you plan to run again next time to wrap it up?

      You went back to Vinekeep to find Rango to lift the incredibly heavy stone lid. Such strength makes Rango a contender to take Restac's place amongst the Lizardfolk Paragons but Conrak Redwood is still out there in the jungle with their most sacred and powerful artifacts...waiting.

    • Greg M.

      heh what i mean is, it says
      "6 attending
      No spots left"

      Nowhere for me to sign up, just want to make it known i'll be there, so i'm not surprising anyone.
