My initial response is I'm really glad they turned 5th edition over the Monte Cook as I've always been a big fan of his work, but I'm not so sure about Robert Schwalb and Bruce Cordell staying on from 4th edition.

We'll have to wait and see for now as they are still going to be test playing and making changes for a while but with Cook as the lead designer I'm hoping we'll get something good in 5th edition.

Still I don't know how many people are going to buy into it. People do not like buying all new non-compatible D&D books ever 4 years which this new edition seems to suggest is WotC's business strategy for D&D so I hope they back more content into the books this time rather then doing what 4th edition did and make you buy book after book after book just to get all the core content that used to be contained in a single volume.

So as with so many things, it seems like it is time for me to get out my Wish List again and hope for the best but expect the worst.

Pathfinder already fixed it, so there's not much point in 5e. that being said, the biggest flaw in recent editions, IMO, was that you need three $40 books just to play the most basic version of the game! I personal think that if they did what Fantasy Flight Games or Triple Ace Games usual do, that is make the game fully playable with only one book and then release completely optional expansions, then that alone would satisfy a lot of people. But they won't do that because it would be more profitable to make you buy a hundred freaking books to play an overcomplicated system for about an hour. WotC is using D&D like GW uses 40k, that is because it's the most recognized name in the field, people, usually people new to the hobby, will buy it simply because they don't know what else is out there. All I know is that there is going to have to be drastic changes to make me want it.
Drive me closer, I want to hit them with my sword.

It isn't that people don't know about other games as they get started, it is that they don't know any groups that play other games when they get started.

The worst part about it for me is that I have ALL of the rulebooks, and am looking at another of the books coming out in February. Ugh, as if I didn't spend enough money on 4th ed. and Warhammer.

I was considering breaking into Pathfinder in the next few months, but now I think I'll wait.

Tomorrow I start playing in an Iron Kingdoms campaign using Pathfinder (dunno how the paladins will be used, but the GM said there will be lots of fights).

Wanted to try out Deathwatch, though.
