Any chance that this campaign will be open to pre-Essentials classes?
So I hope to see some updated Warlord or Fighters!
So, the Dragon articles bit is just for stuff that directly builds on HotFL/HotFK, like the Pyromancer? The new-again Marshal and Weaponmaster sub-classes, while essentials-formatted and calling out HotFL/K as something you'd 'need' to use them to create a complete character, are not 'in support' of those books... I suppose because they also say you could use the PH? This is getting odd. From the PoV of a started-with-Essentials player, the Marshal is as 'new' as the Binder or Vampire. If the Class Compendium had seen print, it would have been OK in season 4. And, it certainly wouldn't hurt to have a less-religious-feeling leader option in addition to the Warpriest & Sentinel... ...but, it'll take DM aproval to bring in one of these 'new' classes?
Oops, looks like this request tried to create an infinite loop. We do not allow such things here. We are a professional website!
Heroes of Spell and Sword was supposed to have "essentials" versions of the PHB1 classes and rules for rituals and multiclassing. It was scrapped as a print product but will probably be cannibalized by Dragon mag.Until then, Essentials-only at DM's discretion. edit: plus HoS and supporting Dragon articles, of course.

I wish there were more defender choices. Knight or Cavalier are the only choices and they are, in my view, virtually the same.p.s. I predict lots of vampires adventuring with a few anemic blackguards.
Blackguards anemic??? To quote Inigo Montoya "I do not think that word means what you think it means."
Standard Answer to all 5E rules questions: "Ask your DM."

Oops guess took it in the wrong way, didnt think of anemic from blood loss to vampires.
FWIW, the Character Builder now has the Dark Legacy of Evard/D&D Encounters Campaign Setting option available, so those with accounts can see what WOTC considers "legal" for this season.No Marshall or Weaponmaster...
