September Meetup: Isle of Dread D&D Next at Pandemonium

We'll be playing another session of D&D Next (the 5E playtest) at Pandemonium! You don't need to have played in our earlier sessions to join this game; this is your chance to see what WOTC is planning for the next edition of D&D.

Important: WOTC updated the rules again on 08/02/2013, so please do download and check out the new test materials.

We are continuing with the pulp classic adventure X-1: "The Isle of Dread."

 

 

You can get a free copy of the playtest rules by signing up at http://www.DNDnext.com/ and downloading the playtest packet. Feel free to read the Player's packet, but don't read the adventure. (You're also welcome to play if you haven't read the rules, because part of the playtest (as far as we're concerned) is finding out how easy it is to teach the new rules.) Pregenerated characters, pencils, paper, and dice will be provided.

 

 

We will meet in Pandemonium's gaming area. Turn right after entering the building and look for the guy in the D&D t-shirt. They've got a huge play area, and no other events scheduled that day. There are vending machines for soda and snacks, too!

 

(If you've never been there, it's easy to drive past Pandemonium. You can't see the sign if you're driving southbound on Middlebelt!)

    The WOTC msg boards seem to be spreading the idea that the next (final?) public D&D next rules packet is coming out this week. Which pretty much leaves today or tomorrow. Probably not enough time for us to consider it for Saturday :-)

      Of course, having said that, I just downloaded the Packet currently available (mine was on a now-dead laptop) and discovered the two Cleric Domains I most enjoyed -- Arcane and Protector -- have been removed. ⊙︿⊙

      And yes, the new rules are now available for download. Looks like not as many changes as last time. But there are some class ability changes, skills make a return, some saving throw bonuses, and new races. I think your comment above about being able to mix characters from the most recent packets is probably correct... They aren't so different as to make either one unusable.

    I'm hoping we can schedule a meetup the following weekend too.

    I've missed the previous Isle sessions, what
    level should my character be built at?

    September 19, 2013

    • Paul

      Good to see you again! You can use one of the 4th level pre-gens I put in the meetup file section or make your own character. If you make your own, please e-mail me a copy in advance if you can.

    Bad Weekend all around. Ren Festival and Bar-Be-Con going on in Clarkston. I will be GMing some Pathfinder at the Con. So, sadly I can't make it.

    Sorry will be at the Michigan Renaissance Festival with Pentamere Winery that weekend.
