    I'll put that into more context as I go on, but this is the first of my feedback/impressions/etc... regarding the playtest released by WOTC for 5th edition.

    A bit of foreshadowing, at first glance, it seems as though the game has gone back to a more 3.x mentality/mechanic rather than progressing forward to something new and innovative. To me, that is why have a new edition, and why adopt one. Sooo... let's go back in history.

  4. D&D character in HERO: the "jedi"

    Now, obviously, I could make a much better jedi in HERO. However, this is piecing together the elements from the D&D toolkit to construct a makeshift jedi.
