    How about a simple "uphold your NDA"? If we all respect our NDAs, nothing bad happens.

    I don't think there will be any need to repost actual snippets of the rules, since the playtest is open to everybody and thus everybody WILL have the rules at hand. But it's good to keep that in mind of course...
    "There is no survival without order, there is no evolution without chaos."
    "You have to see past the RAW to understand the rules of the game."
    "And rules are OVERRATED by the way!

    Well, if I recall correctly, the playtest will not just be the Caves of Chaos, it will be exactly the same map. So referring to room 22 on the map should be fine, since it's been published forever. If it's the same as before and there's an ogre sitting on a bunch of leather sacks, even that's fine.

    Although I know WotC will have their closed playtesting forum for all these questions, and I'm sure I'll be posting over there too, I'd like to discuss as much as I can here for one simple reason.

    I like you guys better. ENWorld's a more civil, rational, and fun place to be, and I would rather have a full, meaningful discussion here than on the wizards forums anytime.

    So, that's why I ask for specifics. Thanks.

    The first rule of D&D Next playtesting is that you do not talk about D&D Next playtesting.

    I feel like we repeatedly have to explain this! I might write a short article and have "sticky" auto link to it!

    I'd rather you did, too. Redirecting all our traffic to WotC isn't going to be a recipe for continued survival!

    Sorry. I was just noting the fact that I nearly missed the thread in my posts, and I felt fairly sure that I would not be the only one.

    So the important part is that Astrologers and Baristas are in D&DN?

    I'd love to have a Barista on hand while I'm DMing ... (sigh)
