D&D Next (aka 5th Edition) Release!

It's about time!


Forgive the tardiness of the topic, but as it's been about a month since I last wrote in my blog regarding my hobby(ies) I'm sure my audience will understand. It's been far, far too long since I've read any (good) news regarding the release of my favorite tabletop game, Dungeons & Dragons.


It's going to seem weird to some I'm sure, but I have a particular love of this hobby. Ever since I was 6 and was beaten up by my brother for perusing his D&D books back in the 80s (I could read about every 5th word but it was the valiant swordsman engaged in mortal combat with a fearsome red dragon that was so engaging to me) the game has been a part of my life. So for me, any continued interest in this game is good. It keeps the game alive and pertinent to the ever-shifting community, even if we (that includes me) don't or can't always identify what it is that we want out of it.


With the announcement that the release will occur some time during the summer of 2014 - if I had to guess it would more than likely be GenCon just based on the timing but hopefully it will be sooner. I for one am definitely looking forward to once again building a collection (I just haven't decided on paper or PDF - I'm seriously hoping for a PDF release) of D&D material to play with my kids.
