5E Musings?

So far it looks like just another version of 3rd Edition with just a few things left out.

The monsters thus the work of the DM has been shortened but not enough. Maybe they will have the monsters on cards or something.

The introductory modules can rot on the shelf at the prices they are wanting for the thinness of the product. Maybe if I did not already feel goug4ed already.  

The artwork and what they want to do with the Forgotten Realms looks really good.

I can't see any reason a serious Pathfinder player would stop playing Pathfinder over 5E.

I could see a GM looking at it and thinking how much easier it could be.

IF I were WotC I would have returned to a much simpler game with modern options (like BttDRPG) and then came out with incredible artwork and modules. I would have had D&D Television shows animated and live action, movies, more video games, and got the game out quicker.

  1. I can't tell what the game is going to be like... too many interpretations flying around with the actual Basic thing not a reality yet.
    I've got plenty of games that work just find... and D&D was NEVER been a brand name I was loyal to... so far nothing I've heard about it has me itching to play it vs. anything I already know and enjoy.
