    Playtest Package Contents

    The public playtest package for D&D Next, available from May 24th (Thursday) will contain: Five pregenerated characters (two clerics to test the range of the domain/deity system. One of the clerics is more of an armor-and-mace fellow, and the other is more of a mystic. Also a fighter and a classic wizard.) The five characters will feature the background and theme system that WotC has alluded to in the past few months.
    • The Caves of Chaos adventure
    • A bestiary to accompany the adventure
    • Rules of play, both for players and DMs
    The playtest is open to anyone who signs up, and the information will be available digitally. As part of signing up, there will be an online playtest agreement similar to the one used for Dungeon Command last year.

    There will be many differences, both in the core mechanics and in the characters, from previous playtests at events such as PAX East.

    I'm digging it, can't wait. As long as we get to roll some dice and have some fun, it can't be all that bad, right?

    5th pre-gen is rogue based on what they said in the live chat I believe.

    Is this from a WotC site or release? If so, is there a link to it?

    It's from the chat, the full transcription of which is the other new article I posted today.

    "The Soul of D&D? It's rolling a natural 20 when you're down to 3 hit points and the cleric's on the floor and you're staring that sunnavabitch bugbear right in his bloodshot eye and holding the line just long enough to let the wizard unleash a fireball at the guards who are on their way, because they're all that stands between you, the Foozle and Glory." - WizarDru

    Hmmm... a fighter, a thief, a mage, a cleric, and a mystic.

    Where have I seen that lineup before...?
