You Like Monks, Right?

I mean, who doesn’t like monks? Well, fortunately, Wizards of the Coast likes Monks, too. In fact, they very sneakily slipped in a monk class for the D&D Next playtest packet last Tuesday, along with the associated maneuvers to make the class work.

So if you downloaded your playtest packet before Tuesday, you might want to do so again, to get all the good Monkified material.

I have to say, 5E keeps looking better and better to me. The more I see, the more I like. I hope they don’t screw it up as they get closer to the real release in 2014.

  1. I hadn't looked at 5E since the initial test materials came out but after downloading the latest materials on a whim I have to agree. I'm starting to like what I see and I like how I can easily change the style of game by leaving out things like backgrounds or specialties.

  2. I don't like monks. Or, more specifically, I don't like the inclusion of kung-fu style monks in an ostensibly Western mileu(sp?) right in the PHB. Better to have left it for the OA supplements.
