    No Play by post playing. Sorry fellas.

    I wonder why though. At least on their site?

    Sure thing!
    Can you do the same for me, if it's not any trouble?

    As for my opinions on the playtest link:

    Not working. Signed up twice to no avail. There's a thread full of complaints on the WOTC forums that is literally growing a page every 5-10 minutes. Each updated link does not work. Crazy stuff. Crazy stuff.

    Google "Sword and Board" blog. It's their latest post. It's a rapidshare link, though, so some firewalls might block it.


    Am I allowed to upload the files to Google Docs for other people, or is that considered against the rules? Is there a clause in WotC's rules saying that if they're incredibly inept we can just circumvent them? (I wish.)

    I'm very curious to see how they balance the magic and nonmagic classes. It's difficult to tell with just this. At the moment, as others have said, things are looking quite 3.5esque.

    Well, if the fighter gets more uses of its multiple-actions-a-round thing...

    Thanks. Got it and ran through it quickly.

    Good:
    • Seems to be more similar to 3.X
    • Seems to be room for customization(Not in the playtest, but I think one will at least be able to chose from more than one Rogue Scheme eventually)
    • Seems to be generally playable


    Bad:
    • Seems to not be as flavorful
    • Seems a bit shoddy, can't say why, but perhaps that's just the fact that it's just a playtest



    Some funny things I noticed:
    • If I'm correct, movement is now a free action that can be taken 1/round
    • Some of the monsters are funny
    • You can cast Charm Person on a person without chance for a save.....providing you've essentially beaten the tar out of them or they're a 1st level character

    Hmm.. I hadn't noticed the movement thing, but now that I think about it, it seems that way.. So they're abolishing the whole Standard v Move Actions? I need to do some rereading.

    Yep. Single action each turn, movement is a free 1/round action. That's how it is.

    There don't seem to be different kinds of actions...There's one action per round (two if you're a fighter using that ability), you can move once per round, and you can make reactions to things, which is how things like Feather Fall work now.

    Did that rereading and I agree with your interpretation. It reminds me a bit of the White Wolf d10 approach to the matter.

    OK DUDE. 50Copper, calling people idiots for disliking 4e is mean. Relax take a chill pill.

    Nobody wants a dumb fighter with no choices. But remember what they said? That they are implementing modularity with the game. These may all simply be the simplest choices.

    Yes, I do believe they mentioned in one of the blogs that the pre-gen fighter would be the simplest one possible and later iterations of the playtest would include different themes and such with Powers for the Fighter. To satisfy people who just want the beatstick and people who want fancy beatsticks.

    Dam it really sucks that PbP is not allowed. Even on their website. Could have made aprivate one. Just for play-testers. How else am I supposed to test the rules? Nobody I know wants to interrupt the current campaign for untested rules.

    You're not the only one. There's a packet download problem thread on the WotC forums with a new link. And failing that, Sword and Board seems to work well.

    I wonder what the chances are of WOTC finding a 5e PbP game on a completely random forum? ie. not here, but just a small privately-hosted one. Could always see if we can assemble a group of people who are willing to risk it...
