There is much linkage here, good stuff.

Here it is! Want to hear Mike Mearls and Jeremy Crawford give an exclusive pre-release interview about Player's Handbook 2?

Wizards invited Rone (my co-host on Atomic Array (http://atomicarray.com/)) and I up to WotC HQ last week. We grabbed a couple copies of PHB2 and sat down with the designers to riff about what's inside.

Have a Listen: Player's Handbook 2 (Atomic Array 018) (http://atomicarray.com/players-handbook-2-aa018)

Wizards also gave me a dozen copies of the book to share with some of my favorite bloggers. I asked each one to write an article about one of the new character classes:

* Critical Hits: The Avenger (http://www.critical-hits.com/2009/03/13/avengers-batman-is-a-divine-striker/)
* Campaign Mastery: The Barbarian (http://www.campaignmastery.com/blog/barbarian-hooks/)
* Uncle Bear: The Bard (http://unclebear.com/?p=3019)
* Critical Ankle Bites: The Druid (http://criticalanklebites.com/2009/03/13/phb2-druid-preview/)
* The Core Mechanic: The Invoker (http://www.thecoremechanic.com/2009/03/invoker-real-bad-ass.html)
* Flames Rising: The Shaman (http://www.flamesrising.com/dnd-ph2-the-shaman)
* Stupid Ranger: The Sorcerer (http://www.stupidranger.com/2009/03/the-sorcerer-destruction-personified.php)
* Musings of the Chatty DM: The Warden (http://chattydm.net/2009/03/13/players-handbook-2-preview-the-warden)

Oh, and you can read a full-on review of Player's Handbook 2 on Game Cryer: LINK (http://gamecryer.com/2009/03/13/players-handbook-2/)

Two more... and I'm done. I promise...

Cool thanks.

My thoughts exactly, I can't wait to read the PHB2 this upcoming week...

I was hoping to read about the sorcerer paragon paths. Anyone have information about them?

Neither of the 'entire PHB2' reviewers mentioned the Expertise feats. Which are easy to patch over, but...
