A character theme that uses Fortune Cards seems questionable, but the Class Acts: Assassin is very promising. Wonder if it will provide options for both the Executioner and Oassassin?

New Daelkyr in Dungeon is very exciting! I love Far Realm horrors.

I didn't think it'd be on there, but I wonder if we'll see the June errata document soon.

Also, hurray for assassin/executioner options. Maybe THESE will do damage. Keep at it WotC.

A theme. . . that uses Fortune Cards. This feels so obligatory and forced. I have nothing against either game element, just so much more we can do as we're just scratching the surface. Oh well, that's business.

If the adventures are decent and use the new layout (or elements of) it will explain/justify 2 at the exact same level band.

No new Bestiary article :-(. I can think of several entries in MM1 and 2 that could use updates in this style, from Orcus on down. (Though they already hit the single entry I personally most would have wanted them to (Wight).)

They've stated a couple times that more Monster Manual update articles are on their way. I'm sure we'll see them eventually.

An article on jousting? Really? Now? When the lance as an item/weapon has been missing from 4e these past three years?

But surely that's a good reason to publish an article on jousting that (perhaps) reintroduces the missing weapon?

From the "Better Late Than Never" department, I'm interested to see how they handle the lance in the jousting article. I just hope that using one doesn't end up costing a pile of feats, since that is already far too precious a resource these days.

I can see them doing it that way though; 1 for proficiency, 1 to make it not suck, 1 more to make it a decent option, or to get a neat lance trick, another 3 or 4 to swap in powers to use with it. Ugh. Please let it be better thought out than that.

I'm also a little leery about the wrestling article (bad flashbacks to 3.x grappling rules), but am hopeful that it will be interesting.

For those wondering about the June errata, apparently its supposed to be up today and will be minor, as the "large" portion of the errata was the playtest Warlock article from earlier in the month (which is supposed to arrive in its final form this month).

Now there is a monster manual update article listed. :D It's labeled as "Aberrants"; since there's no such entry in the original MM, I assume that means they're doing various creatures of the Aberrant origin. Hopefully the Aboleth are among them (they would probably have been my second choice after wights).

They also forgot the Arcanist Wizard playtest in the Dragon ToC until yesterday.

Aberrants, that's awesome. I've been looking through the MM and there's a bunch of single entry aberrant creatures with one or two stat blocks that haven't been updated in MM3 or MV (I wonder if they'll include the aboleths, since they have a much longer entry; they'd conceivably could support their own article): grells, gricks, destrachans, chuuls, balhannoths (one of my favorite monsters from the first MM), and swordwings.

Yay Channel Divinity: Melora!

*Is it me, or are the Dragon and Dungeon articles becoming more and more palatable these days? I mean, almost every article next month interests me!

I hope the jousting article introduces more utilities, feats, attack powers and magic items for mounted combat but I hope it doesnt reintroduce the lance as a weapon, im of the camp that Lance = Spear.

i'm afraid the article is going to be fluff or unsupported unearthed arcana (though to be fair th e.a articles are good but very situational so i wouldnt expect feat support). hope i'm proven wrong.
