Don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m looking forward to Wizards of the Coast releasing the playtest rules for D&D Next. I just hope that they haven’t dumbed it down, which was a common complaint when 4E came out – everyone claimed that it was trying to turn D&D into an MMORPG . One heartening thing I heard was that, as it stands now, the next iteration will not require the use of miniatures. The phrase I heard in one of the PAX East videos was (paraphrased) “while we don’t want to require the use of miniatures, we want to support their use.” Here’s the link to that video, in case you’re interested in hearing more.
See you all Monday!
