EN World Pre-Release Review – D&D Starter Set by Wizards of the Coast

starter coverWarmest greetings, Fellow Gamers and Gentle Readers…

…and I really do mean warmest, as the temperature in my domicile absolutely precludes me being anything but sweltering!  Oh, as surely as I lamented about the unseasonably freezing weather in the Vale of the Wolverine this last winter, the current midsummer heat is just as oppressive… but at least there are no annoying piles of white obstructing the ground!

As I’m sure you are doing, I’m counting down the days to the best four days of gaming this year, and I think that this will likely be a memorable GENCON indeed!  And for a lot of RPG fans out there, the excitement is definitely peaking over the new edition of Dungeons & Dragons about to be unleashed next month!

But this month, there’s already amazing doings from Wizards of the Coast.  Not only does the new D&D Starter Set come out next week, but only a couple days ago, WotC published the D&D Basic Rules on their website – more than 100 pages of rules for playing the game and generating characters – in essence, a bare bones preview of the Players Handbook!

As it happens, the folks at Wizards of the Coast were kind enough to supply me with an advanced copy of the D&D Starter Set, and I’ve posted a review of this “red box” – which is really more greenish by the way – over at EN World last night!

So if you’d like to read all the details about the D&D Starter Set, please click on the link below, and take a Misty Step over to EN World and check out the full review:

The Wait is Over… The Magic has Returned: WotC Releases the D&D Starter Set! (A Pre-Release Review)

I’d like to extend My Thanks to the Wizards of the Coast Team for allowing me to review their product pre-release, and I wish them all the best with the full release of the D&D Starter Set next week!

So until next review… I wish you Happy Gaming!
