D&D 5th Edition - First Thoughts

So - got the new D&D 5th Edition game and the Hoard of the Dragon Queen adventure for review. Thanks, WotC.

I've done my preliminary read through and I'm going to be honest - I like it. I like the feel and the atmosphere, the choice of art, and I like the changes to the rules.

I'm still not hot on the presentation - the covers don't shout 'PLAY ME!' and the design isn't great - but the game feels solid and playable. What's more, the character creation doesn't feel like a slog, like the previous two editions did.

I'll have to play it to get a proper feel, but I really like what I've read up to yet.

Full review soon.
