    To which I say, "yahoo for the Marshal/Warlord!!"

    I like the idea of the class -- now, if they can streamline the abilities to make sure there are very few to no "quasi-magical" powers in there, I'm set. If Pathfinder can pull off the Cavalier, then WotC can pull off a passable Warlord.
    WAAAAAGHUST!

    Yes.

    You say that like it's a bad thing.

    Does his happy dance for the warlord being in D&D Next.

    The marshal/warlord is one of great classes to come out of 3e/4e.

    Nothing personal against the Warlord/Marshal, but I didn't think he was going to be in the "core" book, so to speak.

    This is a playtest. A late-alpha playtest, at that.

    All this means is they wanted people to test playing a class:warlord in Caves of Chaos. I think it's very early days to be drawing lines around "core", or even understanding what available class choices mean in the core.

    All I see is Background: Warlord, not Class: Warlord.

    I'd be tickled pink to see a Warlord in 5e (though I'd rather call it a Knight, with all the attendant baggage) but I think we might be jumping the gun here.

    Actually, vis a vis the Warlord, I have a theory that it isn't the class at all, but like the noble, a roleplaying classlet for those who want more combat leadership options attached to their existing class.

    In other words, I'm guessing that the Warlord has become a 4e-style theme. So I'm predicting 5e fighter warlords, but also wizard warlords, cleric warlords, and so forth.

    If instead of being a class, it is the character archetype for bossing people around.... would that turn the frowny emoticons upside down for those that don't like the warlord?
