Out With the Old
“Out WIth the Old” is kind of an experiment. First off, it is a way for all of us to try to familiarize ourselves with the D&D 5th Edition rules. It’s also sort of a test case for various optional rules, so I’ll be weaving in content from the various WotC release when I can, but also frequently exploiting the DMG options for homebrew content, and updating elements from previous editions.
The default setting for this game is largely based on the “Points of Light” setting from D&D Fourth Edition. It has a similar (though modified) cosmology, similar pantheon, and up to a point a similar history, limited by my own familiarity plus some personal flourishes.
