Poll question based on the Ray Winninger thread and statements within.

Do you plan on buying the 5.5e versions that are coming out for the 50th anniversary?

Yes. Not 100% sure, but I am quite certain I will get them, if they are close to what I expect. I will probably not get the english versions, but german instead.
I will probably get the PHB on dndbeyond, but if it is only a compilation of tasha's guide, xanathar's and the old phb, I will see.

Depends on peoples reception to them and what's in them.

If they get a ton of praise and people love them, then I'll get them. If it's just piles of complaints, then I guess I'm sticking with 5e (or pathfinder 2e if I can convince my group to move).
This is my plan as well. I've been let down by pre-orders enough to wait for critic and audience/user reviews for most products. Cheers to all the alpha testers out there making my life easier.


I crit!
A to encourage the kind of change I see so far.
B cause I need to be current for a variety of reasons.
C I have two PHBs now and really could use a third anyway, when I do intro games and beginner char gen sessions.
D I am also interested in having it, especially for new art or any special covers.


Hobbit on Quest (he/him)
I answered yes, but that's a probably yes. I don't see any deal-breakers coming up so far and, by then, my 5e books will be pretty worn. And I'd really like to see a better organized DMG.


No, I very much doubt it. I have other fantasy RPGs and my group is up for them. At 59 in 2024 I'm probably not in their statistics anyway. I did buy and play all editions from Basic Moldvay to 5e.

Probably not, unless a) there's a significant amount of contagious enthusiasm and b) they have a setting book I really want. Would also help if they change their mind and offer PDFs again, but I don't see that happening.
As it stands now, I think I'm done with modern D&D for a while once we finish the current campaign, and will rather go for Old-School Essentials and Dolmenwood as the next thing to play in the D&D space.


Goblin Queen (She/Her/Hers)
Too soon to say, as all we have right now is speculation and vague hints. I would bet it’s likely that I will end up getting it, but I am not going to decide until we have a better idea of what they will actually contain.
