Here we go again!

Well, Wizards of the Coast, made the official announcement yesterday: they are starting work on Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition.

Taking a leaf out of Paizo’s books they are consulting with their fan base at every step of the way. It’ll be very interesting to see what comes out of this – and particularly how Paizo responds to it all. After all, 5th edition could wind up being the 4th edition we always wanted.

What do this mean for Iourn?

Abolutely nothing. Nada. Squat. Zero. Bugger all.

I’ve had my fill of rules and new systems. I’m in the process of consolidation of the Pathfinder and Third Edition rules for Iourn. Iourn is run under a sub-set of the third edition rules. I won’t be converting the system or the PCs to anything.

Which is not to say that I won’t run some 5th edition games when the system is released, just that I’m not looking to change anything for the Iourn setting.

Still, food for thought.

  1. please dont waste your time dreaming 5e or put it this way, change your mind that we should embrace 5e like we thought 4e and then there was HDnD…

    just write a good adventure, stick to the current system and see where we go from here…

    • Well, I’m not going to be above taking 5th edition material and converting it back into Pathfinder if it’s interesting enough…. but no conversions.
