Ahh, see, now, I let my sub lapse before the 5e release, so, it never really affected me that way. But, I could see how people might be put out by that.

OTOH, I never had any problems with the online character generator, the rules data base or anything like that. I'm not sure why people are saying that Gleemax was a big failure. AFAIK, it was a pretty strong success with a hundred thousand subscribers or so. Not bad at all.
An updated character builder no worse than the 4e one but with more open formats for exporting would probably be something I would consider subscribing to.

Being able to use a character builder with a subscription to export characters to Roll20 would also increase the chances of me trying a hypothetical VTT connected to the character builder. Until then I'll probably keep using ever more advanced Excel sheets...

22. Zombies have an average of 22 hit points (yes, I know that off the top of my head. No, you're not allowed to judge me), and assuming they have the correct weapons, feats, and roll well (probably requiring a critical hit for most of them), that's the maximum damage you can do to the average zombie.
I get 33 (Assuming the zombies hit points are rolled) or 38 if not taking overkill into account.

Zombies are 3d8+9 hp so assuming you are rolling hit points that lets them have up to 33.

A Variant human could have a Strength as high as 20 (Roll 18+1 and another +1 for feat.) But we're' going to assume the feat is spent on Great Weapon Master - so the Strength is 19

1d12 or 2d6 max is 12+ 4 Strength + 10 for Great Weapon Master is 26. However, the max damage would also include the possibilty of a Crit so that would add another 12 for 38, which kills the zombie outright.

If you are using point buy the maximum damage possible would be 37.

I don't think I've forgotten anything here.

Huh, the Survey is closed already!? Since when did they close surveys after 2 days!? What's going on - somehow I completely missed it!

Three possibilities:

1) They're hopelessly naive in thinking this NDA would hold.
2) It was a deliberate leak.
3) It was a test to see how long an NDA would hold, perhaps for some other upcoming project.

Oh, please let it be #3. I ain’t said nothing, WOTC!

If it was a deliberate leak, then they would not have closed it within 3 days leaving people like myself scratching our heads on what it was while the rest of you have to be all coy because of the NDA. I haven't done the research into what's on twitter or imgur or whatever, but I imagine it's big if it's real.

I'm thinking that it MIGHT be Door #3, as that would explain why they closed it so quickly. If the NDA was so easily broken, whether or not this is real, that would be real data they just got and they wouldn't need to keep the survey open for fools like me that missed it because we were too focused on E3 news this week (and in my case, on moving my home to a new apt).

If it IS the real deal, I imagine that we will hear official word next month at the same time we hear more about Feywild, Strixhaven, and Wyatt's project.
 


Why do people keep talking about an NDA?

I can't remember exactly what it said, but from my recollection there wasn't any legal agreement. Didn't they just ask you to promise not to tell?

Pretty much

To my 'weary from the endless roads of the Internet' eyes it looked like it was a "Alright all you media lot, don't go spilling the beans on this" type of thing aimed at more your Youtubers. There also was a fair amount of questions about where folks get news from so, suspect that's who it was targetting

The video didn't play on my oddball web browser, so I re-took the survey (probably with somewhat different answers) on Chrome, and after the video played and they asked me if I was able to view it, they didn't ask me any more questions.

Interesting that people say the Discord questions seemed to trigger the NDA for them.

I got questions about Discord, and the first one I got was "Have you heard about the D&D Discord Server" (or similar, I forget the exact wording).

I said yes I had.

The follow up question, was "Have you used the D&D Discord Server" (again, or similar because I forget the exact wording).

That one I had to answer no to, as I know about the server, but have never used it.

The survey seemed to maybe glitch at that point, because I then got a series of 5 or 6 questions asking me my opinion about the D&D Discord Server and how it could be improved. The last one had a text box to allow comments rather than just a click the dot scale, and I had to comment that how could I say anything about improving the D&D Discord Server when I told you six questions ago that I have never used it. :)

Wonder if anyone else had that experience?

Cheers :)

Looks like digital is the direction of travel for Wizards. With the Dungeon Alchemist Kickstarter, the writing was on the wall.

Otherwise, I have no interest in migrating over from Beyond, which is (mostly) functional enough for my purposes. I imagine this is also the case for people who've sunk substantially more money into Beyond products than myself.
Yeah same. I had no issue buying twice with DDB and physical copies. Buying a second set of digital copies is not gonna happen.
