Re: D&D 5th Edition Discussion

Have to admit a bit of a head-shake moment -- several posts referenced being unhappy with any race as any class, but that's true in C&C as well. Why? Some people house rule things. Everyone can play the type of game they enjoy. If you like Halfling Paladins & Dwarf Wizards- then play that. I don't....

Re: D&D 5th Edition Discussion

I have my new Players Handbook now and gave it a once over, quick read. We are back to every race can be every class now, no level restrictions. Halfling Paladins, Dwarf Wizards, etc. Dwarves lost their anti-magic, but still resist poison. Not a Tiefling or Dragonborn fan. The Warlock seems the newe...

Re: Lone Wolf by by Dominic McDowall - Cubicle 7

$24 for mailing from a US address to a US address? Media Mail? Yeah, absolutely a blatant rip off. Edit: Your reading that wrong, its roughly $10 for the UK and US, the $24 is for Europe. $10 for a boxed set, expansions, etc... is very reasonable. Ahhh, my apologies.

Im a Lone Wolf fan, but $24 shipping to the USA killed it for me, since im not interested in PDFs.

Re: D&D 5th Edition Discussion

Thanks for the reply. Not a smart move by WOTC. A better rulebook, but smaller adventure would have been better. If they want their own character other than the pregens, its a big turn-off for new players right from the start. New Guy:" I want to play a Dwarf Fighter." DM: " No, sorry. You have to d...

I don't know if this is true, as I do not have the Starter Set myself yet- the set does NOT contain rules for character creation. WTF!?!

Anyway, back to the topic at hand. The 5th Ed PHB will debut at ~$50. I think the other 2 Core books also. The uptake will be lower than 3.x or 4.x but will still be the RPG sales figure of the year. I just don't think that it will regain for WotC the top seat. Ouch. $50 a book for 3 core books mig...
