So you want to try Dungeons and Dragons Next? #dndnext
EnWorld is reporting the contents of the next Dungeons and Dragons Next playtest kit: five pregen characters, an adventure, some monsters, and the rules (or at least enough of the rules for you to test the game out). Apparently the kit will become available starting on May 24, 2012. If you want to sign up to playtest D&D Next, you can do so over at Wizards’ web site. Although there has not been a public release of the rules yet (there has been at least one previous playtest), we are starting to get a good idea of how the next edition of D&D is shaping up. I would encourage you to take a look at EnWorld’s top-notch wiki on the subject, which is easily the most comprehensive database of our knowledge so far. Personally, I am hoping it will be an easier-to-play version of AD&D 2nd Edition (which was my edition growing up) and less Third or Fourth Edition, but I also worry, from what they have said, that they are trying too hard to be everything to everyone.
