    5e.... D&D Next Playtest OOC - Full

    Hi All. Not sure if there's any interest in this, but with the 24th coming up soon, I'm wondering if anyone has interest in playtesting the 5e rules through a PbP format. I'm going to be DL'ing the package and thought it would be good to see how it runs here as it's my main (ok only) gaming avenue. I wouldn't do anything until the following week so sometime around the 30th or so. Let me know if you're interested. If I get enough cool, if there's more than 5 people (or maybe 6 if we double up a Pre-gen) I'll work out who to choose, probably with a dice roll.

    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.
