Vin specializes in kicking all kinds of butt, from big screen to tabletop!
But have you seen him play? Here you go!
P.S. I gotta say, love this playgroup’s style – and their DM is awesome!!
D&D 5th Edition continues to play so beautifully at the young age of around one-and-a-half, and I know I speak for many long-time, new and veteran players and DMs out there when I say I couldn’t be prouder and happier to share this tremendous game and hobby with you.
THANK YOU for making our hobby and this awesome game we love feel and play – once more – like the best roleplaying game of all time that it is!
Finally, here’s to my gaming group and all gamers around the world – once more! – and yet another tremendous year of D&D, Dragon Age and so many more great and epic tabletop RPG stories and adventures!
See you in 2016!
So cool seeing one of D&D’s most iconic heroes featured in the video! As a League of Legends fan, Riot games always impressed with the ever-increasing quality of theatrical trailers as the world and story evolved. Dragon Age might be king of fantasy genre trailers and movie-style cut scenes.
Sure, D&D has done movie clips before, but this one blows away any they’ve ever released. Great to see D&D stepping up their movie trailer quality!
Can you spot all the classic D&D heroes and monsters?
And it gets better: the director of Dragon Age: Origins (also a beloved CRPG and instant classic) is bringing us Sword Coast Legends.
Dragon Age: Origins goodness meets D&D’s best CRPGs of all time? And you can play old school single player with your party (love it!) or multi-player as a party – or… you can DM, too?
Am I dreaming? This is awesome!!
We’re only two short weeks away from the D&D Starter Set release on July 15th!
And you know what that means: the core books will soon be ours, starting with the 5th edition D&D Player’s Handbook on August 19th!
Until then, in case you’ve missed out on some of the playtest packets or haven’t seen the Starter Set Previews yet, click and enjoy:

And now back to my wickedly fun Murder in Baldur’s Gate D&D Next campaign! See you and our new D&D game in July!
P.S. Not sure which D&D 5e products you should start with or grab? This might help.
Murder in Baldur’s Gate and Legacy of the Crystal Shard are now officially on the table as we wrap up our tremendous Dragon Age campaign. I might use these Forgotten Realms adventures mostly as is, or for inspiration for a new D&D Next mini-campaign. My last “Seascape” D&D Next mini-campaign was well received – though admittedly the stories, adventures and personalities moreso than the chaos of the playtest packets – so I’m looking forward to putting the DM hat back on in February.
If you haven’t seen them yet, you get D&D Next DM Screens (awesome!) with these Realms adventures, plus they’re sourcebooks too – great value! And sure, the playtest packets – even the final one – are “unfinished” D&D 2014, but they’re as close as we can get till the real thing hits shelves in mid or late 2014 – and that day I can’t wait for!
The playtest experience was new to everyone, so my playgroup’s reaction was mixed. I can see where it’s frustrating changing back and forth on rules, and wondering why certain rules are so vague or plain missing. But then again, like the packets say – it’s playtesting! You have to expect some of that. And ultimately, I personally enjoyed being part of the experience and sending them survey feedback. (more…)
