Speculative Netbook of 5e

After all the 4e hating on D&D forums everywhere, somebody on twitter decided to lighten the mood and start hating 5e early.

Preview of 5th edition, @howstuffworks: Twitter unites speculative hating

Speculative hating has to be the greatest invention ever! Made me think, wouldn’t it be great to be able to play this 5e everyone was talking about? So I collected all the hate and design a netbook for playing a 5e game, several years before its released!

Don’t forget to check out the twitters first though, they work best as oneliners.

Edit: New version. Includes power cards and the elusive power gamer monster!
Edit: 09/06 Someone made a character sheet for 5e!

Yes, even you, devout 1e, 2e, 3e and 3.5e players, can skip right to the vastly superior 5e!

Please leave your comments here.

What I exchanged my wallet for..

It’s in the mail!

1 x Monster Manual 2
1 x Player’s Handbook II
1 x Dungeon Master’s Screen
1 x Monster Manual 4.0
1 x Player’s Handbook 4.0
1 x Dungeon Master’s Guide 4.0
1 x Dungeon Delve

I couldn’t get myself to buy a starter kit instead. You better be worth it, 4E!

D&D 4e playing cards

D&D 4e introduces power/item and monster cards as a main game mechanic. I know WoTC provides means to print or buy these cards, but what about homebrew content? What would be better to lighten the load of my fellow dungeon masters than providing web tool to create and share high quality printable cards, that fit into standard sleeves no less!

The premise is simple; provide a handful of prefab card templates, allow dungeon masters to fill in the blanks (be it text, images or icons), and generate a print quality pdf for them to download.

Its not limited to D&D though, I hope to expand it with templates for a broad range of games.

Learning new technologies is always a nice excuse to go on a sidetrack, and this is going to be a nice proof of concept for a, dare I say it, webbased Redblade.

Keep your eye on http://www.godeckyourself.com, I plan to put a beta live before the end of May.
