D&D 5th edition

Yep.. Life happened. Still here still looking at stuff. Mostly been spending my freetime Playing the new D&D 5e by Wizards of the Coast (http://dnd.wizards.com). Decent game, it is as if they went back tot he roots of D&D. Gone is the “we want to be a tabletop MMO” style that was fourth edition, but it is not 3.5, as that is now the domain of Pathfinder. It has all the races you came to love/hate in 4th Ed, but with real rules, real balance, and real fun. You can still have feats, but they are not the be all and end all like 3.5. Each class is unique in what it does, but you can have an adventure without requiring the typical fighter, rogue, cleric. Prebuilt adventures are decent as well. Nicely written, but with room for the DM to play should they choose. All in all, well done. Now if they can allow 3rd party people to create Tablet, and smartphone enhancements (they kinda messed one up, not sure where it is going yet) then this will be neigh perfect.
