Since it's summer and there are no other RPG's taking anyone's time here at the moment, I thought this would be a good opportunity to start up a group to do some playtesting on D&D 5e. Should this get off the ground, this adventure will be different from the sort that I'd normally run; balance is probably still wonky, I didn't write the adventure, and the characters are mechanically pre-made. This set of materials is mostly a test of the most basic rules of the game; it even only goes to levels 1-3, so you won't have wacky wizard warring shenanigans (yet, although the game will never fall victim to that, I hope). You're free to make whatever criticisms you like, and I can't exactly hold them against you (e.g. if Alex wants to use the opportunity to criticize WOTC's lack of proper differentiation between weapons, and he signs up for this thing, he can even bring the complaint to those who're in charge of this stuff).
The link is here. You'll need an account there in order to download the materials and post feedback to the forums.
Ideally, I'd like five players (and I can't accept any more than that, since there are only five test characters made), with varying levels of familiarity with D&D as a whole, so that I can get both comparisons with previous editions and unbiased commentary. I'd like to emphasize the point that I want anyone and everyone who participates to actually provide feedback if they come up with anything, and think critically throughout the whole thing. If we get enough people for a decently-sized party, I'll then leave it to the players to decide which character they want to be.
