Cool Christmas story i found on the web. WoTC sent a DM who lost all his D&D stuff in a flood a box full of 4E (and other Eds) D&D books.

Thumbs up to WoTC for helping a Sandy's Victim DM rebuiild his D&D collection for Christmas

WotC sends Sandy Victim GM a Christmas shocker!

By Pt5PastLight

My friend (and selfless weekly GM to so many since the 90's!) lost everything on his ground floor during Hurricane Sandy, including 20+ years of D&D rulebooks, supplements, adventures and novels. As several feet of flood waters poured in, he chose to rescue precious items like his daughter's princess castle and his wife's sentimental treasures. His impressive DnD collection, on multiple giant bookcases, toppled over and were destroyed in minutes and needless to say he was dispirited. So I reached out to Wizards of the Coast to see if there was anything at all they could do to help us rebuild his collection (discounts, coupons, PDFs or anything). They said that maybe they could do something for him. Nobody expected this enormous box of Christmas cheer!! Thank you Wizards! The day before this showed up he was telling me he'd lost the will to play or rebuild his collection. An hour after it arrived he was in good spirits and working on a new campaign This makes all the players in our groups feel good about supporting their company all these years. And we appreciate the older editions they thought to include!

very cool story! thanks for the link plague!

to WotC.
Here are the PHB essentia, in my opinion:
  • Three Basic Rules (p 11)
  • Power Types and Usage (p 54)
  • Skills (p178-179)
  • Feats (p 192)
  • Rest and Recovery (p 263)
  • All of Chapter 9 [Combat] (p 264-295)
A player needs to read the sections for building his or her character -- race, class, powers, feats, equipment, etc. But those are PC-specific. The above list is for everyone, regardless of the race or class or build or concept they are playing.

I post something even remotely non-positive and it gets ORCed.  Guess this is meant to be advertising and not a discussion.

Good job WotC!

This thread does kind of set off my BS detector, yeah. "Look at how amazing and awesome and wonderful WotC is!"

I'd like to believe it's mere coincidence or that whoever was behind it had good intentions, but it still reeks of advertisement, so I'm not sure what to think.

But if this post gets ORCed, I guess I'll know WotC's intentions then, won't I?

Just followed the link and realized that somewhere in the comments people began to misunderstand that the person that received the gift was somehow related to the Sandy Hook shootings rather than Hurricane Sandy. Not sure how they figured that a flood tied into the shootings.
Good job WotC!
