Watching this I realise I am too old for this kind of presentation! :D

It's not bad, the presenters are very good and have a lot of energy. It's just ... strange ... to listen to a presentation that is not some awkward gamer telling me about why their game is the best ever. This is professional and contemporary!

Not for me, that is. :D

Virtual table looks cool.

I want to DM for some younger players and mark a spot on the map as "Owlbear Woods" and watch as they go to find a new friend and instead get torn apart.

D&D 50th Ann Doc incoming it will be interesting to see how WotC colors the past. Guess this means no Dragonlance film or tv EDIT: Apparently I missed the hint at a Dragonlance tv show

Is there nothing in q2? Or am I missing something? I'm pleased the Phandelver stuff isn't just a repackaging of what we have. Its a good starting locale for sure.


Still figuring stuff out!
Planescape looks rather neat! Glad he pronounced Sigil correctly, and is that a dabus I spy?

Bigby's Fizban for Giants, I think.

Phandelver after that, then it seems like Planescape has been moved up the schedule a bit - was originally listed as coming later than the Book of Many Things, but now it seems like it's coming out before it. A different look for the Lady of Pain than I'm used to, but I'll take it nonetheless.

EDIT: Ah, looks like you're correct - Bigby's been moved to Q3 as well.
