PaX Prime 2015 - Dungeons and Dragons 5.0 Play

View previous topic View next topic Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]

Ross, Chris, Brad, what did you guys think of the 5.0 mechanics? Chris, what did your boys think? Mechanics aside, I thought it was funny that Ross was playing the Thief, Brad was playing the Fighter (that missed), I was healing people (uh...w only two spells for the whole adventure!), and Chris was the arcane caster... seemed a lot like a game here at my place. I think this is a "Must Do" event next year too!

We should have done the 4 hour adventure, or went back and did more of adventures in that series.

Concur on 4-hour game. I'm thinking I'm volunteering to GM next year...

Better try to get on their list a little quicker than you did a couple of years ago.

Agree, we need a bunch of us to do a four hour game...
Ross, what did you think of Tim's method of putting the initiative cards on the screen?

Boys didn't think too much of it, they just enjoyed playing. They loved getting their own set of dice and a dice bag.

For the wizard the mechanics are very similar to 3.5 but with a bit of the good from 4.0 in there. I get a spell book and get to place any of my known spells in any of the slots I have like the sorcerer did in 3.5. I also had "cantrips" which are very much like at wills in 4.0 as there were two that could damage. I don't know how effective those would be at higher levels but at low level they were fine. Magic Missile is again a beast again as 3D4+3 is very good at 1st. 6-15 is a very nice range when even fighters only had 14 hit points.

Advantage didn't really play that big of a part as we never used it nor did the DM but by the same token neither did disadvantage.

Other than that I would say that it is same old same old. Just the nuances were slightly different.
