D&D 5E What big thing is supposed to be next week?


First Post
Perhaps they are coming out with a free version of the character builder, it just lets you pick your stuff and makes you a sheet, but has no power cards?

Maybe PDFs are coming back?

Maybe both?

My guess is more stuff that will further divide their player base, based on the last 2 years of operating procedures.

If they were smart, they admit they are doing a re-release on PHB1 and 2 in one book with the Essentials changes integrated, which would actually be a useful book that I'd consider buying...

Monday morning; 10am Eastern Time. Be sure to be looking at EN World's news page for something really special.

Eastern Time? Eastern Time? WTF is wrong with good old GMT, eh?

That is 1500Z (or 3pm GMT) or Tuesday 0400 NZ time.

Cya Tuesday morning about 7 then ;)

Before he died, they downloaded Gary Gygax's consciousness into a computer, and, William Gibson-like, he lives on as the world's first true AI...

And will be running AD&D adventures on a VTT- for a modest fee, of course- complete with all of his house rules.


I am hoping they announce a partnership with Amazon to get the books and magazines in Kindle form. It would give me digital and them more control than pure pdf.


Okay, I am going to go out on a limb here a say something far fetched . They are having EN World break the news about 5th edition.

Orc and pie is a lie.

They announce Monte and Mearls will be developing a 5e based upon a cleaned up version of Iron Heroes?

They announce 5e will be based upon 3e incorporating ideas an material in the various Book of Might series from Monte's Malhavoc?

They built a time travel device and announce that they will be skipping straight to 7e?

I have no idea...


Thus, the cake is an Orc and pie.

Orc and Pie :
"Adventure Background: An orc has a pie.
Adventure Synopsis: The PCs kill the orc and take his pie.
Adventure Hook: The PCs are hungry for pie.

Room 1: The Orc's Pie Room
You see an orc with a pie.
The room is 10 feet by 10 feet.
Creature: An orc.
Treasure: A pie.

Concluding the Adventure: Pie tastes good.
Further Adventures: Somewhere, there is a bakery making these good pies. Perhaps it's guarded by more orcs."
