Essentials Started it rolling and we cant be sure about the D&Next thing coming up. Between comments about combat oriented classes and out of combat ones and a sense that perhaps new devs are out of touch with 4e, will 5e be "the past all over again?" Some grognards are the passionate ones that make even the rest of us sigh. But others may be voices of reason who understand the value of true balance and who take up the fight exerting there voices of concern. The reasons for the original design decisions of 4e didnt suddenly go away... It's not about hate, its about love, we love 4th edition. "Can there be a place for those who love 4th edition in 5th edition?"
The Dark Edition Paving the Way for a Balanced Tomorrow Grognards unite!
This is a simple group for everyone with an interest in the Hero Artisan Contests. If you join up you'll get broadcasts announcing major and sometimes minor happenings in the Hero Artisan Contest like: When a new contest opens, When it closes, and How ridiculously handsom/beautiful the judges are.
We'll put the contest dates on the calendar, and keep a wiki open for those that want to post their old or winning entries for the perusal of others. In addition, we'll keep a running tally of medals, contests, and everything else under the Hero Artisan sun.
Friggin join already!
