Played that game for the first time yesterday and had a lot of fun. No one in our party died, we all avoided being put to sleep for 5,000 years, met some all and all, pretty friendly pseudo-Gods, one of whom hooked me up with the perfect potion to hunt down the shape changing cultists that took my girl in some elaborate scheme and I even caught up with one of those fuckers and my giant wolf spider, Quincy, and I fucked it up while my companions dealt with a nigh unkillble were-Jaguar, who unfortunately did pass his curse on to the somewhat deranged, always nude, super ripped, half-orc swamp Warlock who was our “guide”.

I’ve taken on a new nerd form, and it feels so good

D&D is the greatest

My buddy got me into D&D about... Jesus... 5 years ago or so at this point? It really is fun.

We've bounced back-and-forth between 4e and 5e, and I think we're going to transition to 5e full time soon enough (I love a lot about 4e, but combat in 4e can be a fucking chore).

My group is... comically ineffectual, and we tend to rely on our fallback strategy (burn this building/village/city to the ground to cover up our mistakes) far too often.

Currently playing as a Changeling Warlock who, despite being a fucking changeling warlock, is pretty much the most pure-hearted and good member of our group. But we did a brief interlude campaign once (just 4 sessions long) where I played Chaotic Evil as a tiefling barbarian, and that was a fucking blast.

If you even marginally like D&D, do yourself a favor and play Pathfinder.

It's D&D, perfected

Actually digging 5th edition a lot.

Although Rangers suck in this version.

My problem with 5e to this point is I can't find character builders that have EVERYTHING in them. That was why I preferred 4e, actually. My 4e character builder let you play as virtually anything. Want to be a Bugbear Psion? You got it. Wilden Swordmage? Knock yourself out! Githyanki Artificer? Do it!

Unless I'm missing out on stuff, 5e seems to just allow the stripped-down basics unless you just house-rules everything.
