Alright, so after reading what the internet has to say this is how a lot of people seem to feel about 5th edition Dungeons and Dragons:
After reading through the rules here and there when I’ve had a chance this week this is how I feel about 5th Edition Dungeons and Dragons:
I’ve seen some things that make me scratch my head, but nothing that makes me want to frantically email Amazon and cancel my pre-order. I’ve seen a lot of things that I really like, too. I like the advantage/disadvantage mechanic, and I like the backgrounds, along with the personality trait/ideal/bond/flaw character details that go with them (I don’t know how many of these I will use “right off the page,” but I like that there are lots of examples there as guidelines). Anyway, I’m reserving my final judgement until after the dice have hit the table a few times, and I am still very much looking forward to playing my first game of 5th edition in a couple of weeks.
You stay classy, Internet, and enjoy your weekend.
