A recent discussion on another blog really struck a cord with me and I have been able to think of little else. My problem right now is that I AM inspired but i know if I call it 5e, the WotCers will come out of the wood work like cockroaches when the light is turned on. As Greg put it, perhaps I am being too ‘ballsy’. Think that is so?
I am using D&D as a basis, as a foundation, for what I am doing here, but let it be clear that I am not making D&D 5E. I am making MY version of D&D. My current vision for how I want to play D&D in the coming year or so. I suppose it could be said this is a mash of OSR and modern thinking, a host of ideas from the many games I have played and enjoyed: Dragon Age, DungeonSlayers, Barbarians of Lemuria, Risus, and PDQ#, and a host of others I have forgotten at the moment.
Right now I am up to 5 pages of text and tables with ideas and whatnot. Nothing I would put out to the world, well, at least nothing that would go beyond my close friends.
