How does a game that seemingly nobody knew about last week become one of the most anticipated games of 2015? Simple you use the Dungeons & Dragon license, base it on the 5th edition rule set and then put it in the Forgotten Realms Sword Coast. That right there would have been enough to make it a solid title but developers n-Space and Digital Extremes did something else entirely. In addition to a single player game, they added a 4 player co-op and the ability for the 5th player to act as Dungeon Master.
I know things have been quiet around here. There was a possibility of me taking on a position which would of prevented me from working on the site but that is not going to happen. I’m in the process of finish up reviews of a half dozen titles. So stay tuned for another week or so as I get those done. In the mean time I’ve been playing 5th edition Dungeons and Dragons and I plan on writing something poetic on how it has awakened my imagination like it did back in the early 1980’s but that is for another time.
I wanted to be sure my players would enjoy the new version before asking them all to buy players handbooks and while most were experienced role players one thing they all had in common was they were lazy. While I sent them the free rules on the Dungeons and Dragons site I knew the chances they would read them were slim. So I put together this cheat sheet for them and I’m posting it here for whomever wants it. Everything found in this sheet is available in the free rules so it shouldn’t be a copyright violation.
Please leave me comments if you like it or find something incorrect.
Today, Wizards of the Coast announced the latest Dungeons & Dragons storyline, Elemental Evil, which includes new product offerings for both digital and tabletop RPG players. I’m still working my way through the first storyline but there is some great news here for everyone.
