better late than never

I finally got around to buying a copy of the 5th edition of Dungeons and Dragons after playing D&D 3.5 on and off for years.

(I’m pretty sure it’s okay to use this picture. It’s off the official D&D media page)

I started reading the Players Handbook this morning and there’s plenty of things different already. I like the “advantage/disadvantage” system of rolling an extra dice for some tasks and choosing either the highest of the two (for advantage), or the lowest of the two (for disadvantage).

I haven’t finished reading yet, and I still have the Dungeon Masters Guide (DMG) and Monster Manual to go (do you actually read the Monster Manual? Or just refer to it?)

Once I get my head around the rules, I plan to migrate my sons game from 3.5 to 5.0. It should be fun.

I guess my only hesitation is that I have so many 3.5 supplements, and now I’m back to only having the core 3 books again for 5.0.
