Public Playtest of D&D Next

The public playtest package for D&D Next, available from May 24th (Thursday) will contain:
  • Five pregenerated characters
    • Two clerics to test the range of the domain/deity system. One of the clerics is more of an armor-and-mace fellow, and the other is more of a mystic.
    • Also a fighter and a classic wizard.
    • The five characters will feature the background and theme system that WotC has alluded to in the past few months.
  • The Caves of Chaos adventure
  • A bestiary to accompany the adventure
  • Rules of play, both for players and DMs
The playtest is open to anyone who signs up, and the information will be available digitally. As part of signing up, there will be an online playtest agreement similar to the one used for Dungeon Command last year.

There will be many differences, both in the core mechanics and in the characters, from previous playtests at events such as PAX East.
