Hey @FitzTheRuke,

The new play test document is up. Do you want us to retroactively update our characters? I glanced at the cod, and there are a few things that are affected (guidance, and investigation/perception checks that seem to have been merged (Nic has proficiency in both).
How do you want to manage future updates?
Thanks and cheers,

SG

Hmmm... I don't want to force anyone to do anything, but at the same time, I'd like to see stuff in actual play. We're only just getting started, so there's always the likelihood that things will change again before we even use any new rules. (Like Crits and Inspiration have done).

This idea may bother anyone who's particularly fussy (I can be pretty fussy myself, so I'm not judging!) but my inclination is to truly test the "backwards compatibility' of it all and say that we're playing with BOTH. If you're someone who can't be bothered to learn the playtest rules, then you're playing by 2014 rules. Post your turns, and I'll figure it out. My end (DM) will be playing with OneD&D rules, so if I tell you something happens to you like "You gain Exhaustion 1" (which means you get -1 to all D20 Tests), just take my word for it (I'll tell you if it's something that is named now but I mean the new version).

Feel free to update any character sheets (or not) as you prefer. (Or argue with me - I welcome it - if you're someone who thinks we should go "all or nothing". It's a reasonable thing to want.)

Just noticed this comment. I don't know where you get that idea from. Those two skills still exist as distinct things like they always have.

Page 36 search action. Investigation isn’t on the list of search actions, so I’m assuming (perhaps wrongly) that the two skills have been fused.

I read the doc quickly, so I don’t fully grok it but my intent is to retrofit my character based on the updated rules, this weekend, kids allowing ;-)
Cheers,

Nah. They just did further work to differentiate the two. Investigation is under the "Study" Action.

SO... I am about to move to the "true" beginning of the adventure, but I just wanted to give @gnarlygninja a chance for Sweet William to act. I don't think I've seen a post-earthquake post by you yet, far or less a reaction to the crystal vine.

Thanks, things are clearing up. Just got sick nd then had some family stuff immediately happen that left me really down for a bit. I was mostly avoiding the internet and didn't realize how far behind I'd gotten with this.

OKAY. Been a busy week. I hope you're all okay, between hurricanes (south and east), forest fires (west), general life (all of us), and new D&D playtest packets (wheee!), I think we've all been a bit swamped. I've got this one started "for real" now, though! Hope you enjoy it.
