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.

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.

Please be aware that this is a play-test. The campaign, group size, etc. may change from week to week.

    Good roleplay, inventive scenarios and combats, and some interesting rules questions also!

      I had a good time tonight, good mix of multi rules being used and tested, and some fun role playing / combat at the same time. Looking forward to the next session.

    Then why have it listed for the elf in the 1st place?
    All fighter types can use all weapons anyway.
    As per druid I can use a scimatar...why not a long sword if I know how?
    I look at it this way...if Gandalf (wizard) can use a long sword...why not my druid?

    Any other thoughts?

      Hey Tom, you hit on one of the concerns I have with DnDNext ATM, you'd need a GM ruling to fix the ambiguity. Which is OK provided the GM knows the pros and cons to do so, can be fair and balanced, and could need in-depth understanding of the rules.

    Not to get off the subject....but I have a character question.
    As a wood elf I am proficiant in the long sword , short bow & long bow. BUT as a Druid I can not use them. Which applies.?
    I assume my character was an elf long before he became a druid?

    BTW...
    Ian... I hope you stop by once in a while & hop into the game. It was fun.

      I think that's crazy its clearly intended for any racial benefits to be in addition to class stuff. Its not something you lose if it doesn't jive although you could always RP it that way.

      Lol this is a lot of discussion to come to the same thing I said in the first reply. If you train to become a Druid you forfeit your rights to use the weapons. Just like if you train to be a wizard you forfeit the right to put on anything but cloth, sure you can suit up in full plate it's like putting on cloths, but you forfeit it for the needs and requirements of your skills of that class.

    Hey Scott - are you okay with 7 players? 5 RSVp + 2 waitlist

    May 23, 2013

    • Mark S.

      It's all good. I will modify the future events to remove the attendance cap and the waitlist. Thanks Ian for getting us started! Of course feel free to drop in whenever you want to!

      May 24, 2013

    • Mark S.

      Unfortunately, removing the attendance cap and waitlist may have wiped out the RSVP's on the future meetups. Please double-check and RSVP again when you get a chance!

    Hi guys, just to let you know I'm stepping down as host of the group. I achieved what I set out to do and get something running, but as I said this was never a long-term plan and I have other projects I want to work on.

    May 24, 2013

  • M Scott S.

    Yes. I never really got the wait list. I thought the more the merry. And we're all old enough we can deal with the delay that extras might cause.
