D&DNext Open Playtest Begins This Week

The open playtest for D&DNext begins this week, if you’re not signed up you better sign up for it asap! We discuss the contents of the playtest packet so you can be ready to see what’s going to be headed your way and discuss some design elements of the game as well, enthusiastically!

 

RoleplayingTips Combat Descriptors

Roleplayingtips.com has a free PDF up on their website full of ready to used canned flavor text for combat interactions during your games. Melee, spells, ranged, hits, misses, you name it, it’s in here. Andy and I discuss how useful stuff like this is and suggest a tweak or two to the overall setup.
