5e

Postby beejazz » Thu Jan 12, 2012 1:09 pm

It was announced in the NYT first this time. It's about 2 years off and they claim they'll be going for an open playtest and a system that is somehow modular and maybe retrocompatible. Anyone hear anything else about it?
I'm writing a game.
Here's the place to start looking.
I'm also writing up a little setting to playtest it in.
Poke around.

Haven't heard anything about it, but I signed up for the playtest.
I suspect the following
  1. Its going to suck
  2. Its going to be a more 3.5-y 4e
  3. WEEABOO FIGHTAN MAGIK
  4. Promises they won't deliver on (like that mapper they were gonna make)

If it's retrocompatible with 3.5 and gives us expansion materials to work with (especially Eberron stuff!) then I'll be satisfied.

I'm just confused why they announced it in the NYT. Frankly, between Pathfinder and Legend, I'm not sure I really care. Maybe the community involvement will lead to a better game? Maybe?

(Also, Dai, before you get pissy about the fact that I haven't posted, I have to leave for work like now and there's only so much I can do in that time.)
Haaaahahahaha!!!!

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pron surfed, weak and weary,
Over many a strange and spurious site of ' hot xxx galore',
While I clicked my fav'rite bookmark, suddenly there came a warning, and my heart was filled with mourning, mourning for my dear amour,
"'Tis not possible!", I muttered, "Give me back my free hardcore!

I think that statement offended me far more than the fact you haven't posted, which I simply shrugged off to "you're not sure" as of this moment =P

Sheesh, just because I remind ppl to post doesn't mean I'm angry. Do I have to post a giant ascii smilie face every time or something? =P
