A year and a half in the making! Here's my #review of the #DungeonsandDragons Fifth Edition Players Handbook.

"That's sort of a shame if that's the case since "Nirvana" and the "Happy Hunting Grounds" are both considerably more evocative and appealing than the generic descriptors of "Mechanus" and "The Beastlands"."

Eh, as a fan of Planescape I will have to disagree with you on that one. Plane of Giant Clockworks for the Win!

As for the Feywild and the Shadowfell, these are among the best new concepts to come out of 4E. I am glad they kept them.

"Which begs the question: how badly is WOTC still kicking themselves over the whole Open Gaming License idea?"

Not very much, since they released an SRD for 5e recently:

Not only that, but they even allow others to publish Forgotten Realms material and sell it:

Although that's definitely not part of the OGL but a separate licensing system. Still, I was amazed how open this is, and plan my own publications ("Returned Maztica").

Thankfully, The Force Awakens is an effective palate cleanser. Here's my review. #starwars #moviereview

Yeah, I'm pretty sure ye olde Sun Token doesn't budge on the first turn in Third Edition.

Thanks to these handy-dandy Quick Start Character Summaries, you can put the finishing touches on that 5'th Edition "D&D" character lickety-split! #dungeonsanddragons

This trend of dragging out perfectly good stories for the sake of doubling or tripling your box office take has gotta stop. Speak of the devil: here's my #review of the latest offender: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1. #movies #TheHungerGames
