Dungeons and Dragons Links

For those of you "in the know", the new edition of Dungeons and Dragons has been released today. As I scramble to find 100 bucks or so to preorder the core rulebook set, I went ahead and found some interesting links for you guys.

First up, Gabe and Tycho (creators of Penny Arcade) as well as their eternal nemesis Scott Kurtz (of PVP fame) got together for an exclusive playtest of 4E. And, luckily for us, they are releasing the sessions as both a podcast and a webcomic on WotC's website. Listen to it, if only to hear the character name discussion ("Jim Darkmagic" indeed) and learn about the "rat king".

For my fellow science nerds/BSG fans, there is The Science of Battlestar Galactica. Definitely check out the two-part article about possibly the most controversial part of the show: Cylon-Colonial crossbreeding.

And because Agent Bedhead linked to me, I am returning the favor. Plus, it is pretty funny.

Kudos to Daniel for reigniting my desire for both Lost and Evangeline Lilly.

4 brain pickings:

    Holy frack! How did I miss the coming out of the new edition! I've stopped playing for so long it kinda fell by the wayside. I gotta scramble for the money for the coreset.

    Damn my WotC whoring...

    So Vermillion...have you looked at the new edition yet? I just picked up the Player's Handbook, and I was wondering if you'd gotten a chance to look it over. I wanted your opinion on it.

  3. I have checked out the stater adventure, Keep on the Shadowfell I think? It has a quick start rule booklet attached. So far, I am liking this thing. Especially the powers.

    And dude, cleric now heal by HITTING PEOPLE. How awesome is that?

    As much as I resisted change...and the fact that this edition pretty much negates my world...I still am very curious as to how well this will play out. I'm gonna need to track down the remnants of my gaming group and get a quickie adventure going to feel it out. It's unfortunate that I don't really have any regulars around to play with anymore...damn people keep moving away or becoming disinterested...
