Grandfather of Assassins (Lvl 19)
Don't know about this, after a quick look-through they've got a fair skeleton, but it looks like its moving away from what I want - for example, specialties feel constraining. Dumb armor, like Dragon scale and Displacer beast hide?
The good news? Enough info to take the game to about 5th-6th level. The Orog and Urd in the bestiary! They are really pulling out some of the more obscure monsters. But, no dragons? No beholder? No lich or giants?"If it has stats, we can kill it." - T.G. Jackson, intro to 3rd ed Hackmaster

Specialties are few right now, but they are something you can build custom. Taking a fixed specialty is just the simple-mode package deal for one-stop character shopping. It seems like you should easily be able to take Skill Training at Level 1 and Toughness at level 3.
Back in my day player characters at levels 1-5 had two strategies for dealing with Dragons, Beholders, Liches, and Giants - run away or beg for mercy. Prior to 4th Edition level 5 characters simply were not tall enough to ride those rides yet - unless they were picking off some poor juvenile black or white dragons that weren't even Large-sized creatures yet.But, no dragons? No beholder? No lich or giants?

All this looks painfully boring compared to late-era 3.5, Pathfinder, 4E, and SWSE. I was bored to tears running and playing the first round, and after reading the new playtest front to back and see nothing that would change that.
Also, the Kobold Dragonshield is a far superior Defender than the Guardian theme(which is pitiful).

Most themes are weak. What worries me is that the whip is very very exploitable from the second rank. And the guardian is nowhere near as fun as mark punishment of any sort.Also, the Kobold Dragonshield is a far superior Defender than the Guardian theme(which is pitiful).

Still no drinking and pie eating rules or guidelines.
Way to forget the IMPORTANT stuff, WOTC.

Has anyone spotted a list of spells with a ritual version in the packet? Is Cure Light Wounds on there?
I'm trying to figure out the availability/cost of a CLW ritual, to get a better sense of the cleric's healing potential in this playtest version.
