298 – Failed Saving Throw

Welcome to the new year, folks! I thought I’d start off the new year with something subtle and understated. So, yeah, Dhur’s dead – or is he? Bwa Ha ha ha!

So, it looks like Wizards of the Coast has decided to start work on Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition, and will supposedly be using player feedback in playtests to refine the game. I hope they do a good job on it, because, although I play 4th edition and like it (for the most part), I do wish the game were simpler: as it stands now, it is more of a tactical game versus a role-playing game. Making a character for the game is more of an exercise in mathematics than cooperative stroytelling, and me am not good at the math thing. πŸ™‚
