5e Play Test

Last night I got to participate in a 5e play test. It consisted of creating characters and a battle with a troll and some goblins.  We'd entered a dungeon, but didn't get too far into it.

I won't go into too much detail other than many of us have seen these rules before.  They lean more toward older editions than 4e.  There is a cool rule about magical healing.  Monsters have low hit points, but do a lot of damage.  And we had a good time.  I still need to fill out my questionnaire which is what I like least and best about my experience and if I had any questions about the rules. I'll fill it out tonight.

I am hoping this outreach towards old school guys and the reprints is a step toward a friendlier relationship with everyone.  That they realize its not just their rules that needed to change, but their attitude.  I'll be adding that to my feedback email also.
