Last Saturday, I ran a DnD Next Playtest for my regular gaming group. We had been running a 3.5 game and because we had 3 out of 4 PC’s that were non-core classes it would be difficult to switch over. So I decided to run a alternate game that ran side by side of the regular game.
The Players were given pre-gen characters. Each were essentially low-level gangsters; Part of the Crimson Claw Crime Syndicate. This session occurred in the city that the PC’s were currently heading toward.
Zaine, played by Evan, was the crew leader. A human Rogue with a Scavanger Background (House Ruled, as he worked to find lost artifacts in the wasteland north of the city) and the Survivor Speciality.
Grexil, played by Niko, was the muscle. A muttant (long story, but my game includes an alien race that took over the world and then left ) fighter with Slayer background and 2-handed weapon specialist (House Rule).
Yomi, played by Rob, was a Halfing Rogue with the Bounty Hunter Background and Archer Specialty.
The play test went over great. All the players did a fantastic job and wanted to drop the original game and switch over (which makes me happy and sad at the same time).
Here is the discussion Evan and I had about this play test the following day.
