D&D 5th Edition News from GAMA

ENWorld has a nice recap of the highlights from Wizards' presentation on the upcoming 5th edition of D&D. You can read the whole thing here, but the gist of it is:

  • Organized play will be set in the Forgotten Realms, and 5E will kick off with the Tyranny of Dragons story, which centers on the cult of Tiamat. (No word if that also means there will be a Living Realms.)
  • The D&D boxed starter set will be "gorgeous."
  • There will be a PH, DMG, and MM. Only one PH (we'll see how long that lasts). All the "iconic" monsters will be in the MM.
  • They will continue to make previous editions available.

Alas, nobody was allowed to take pictures. Hopefully WotC will be putting some up on their website soon.

They should have returned to classic Greyhawk for 5th edition. Oh well.

That's the only part I care about. Glad to see it... although I wonder what it means exactly.

My opinion is precisely the same as Celestian's in this matter.

The main problem I see with this is a story arc that consumers are expected to follow. I hate that.
