Wired has posted an exclusive preview of the 4th Edition Character Sheet, which I have to say I’m happy to see. Since playing Keep on the Shadowfell, all of us were very concerned because the pre-generated character’s stats were hidden way down at the bottom of the back of the page. We assumed this was because they had already been added in to everything, but we felt there was a huge disconnect with a character simply by not having their key stats front and center (well, left-aligned), and we were all very scared that the standard character sheet would hide them on the back as well. Thank god that is not the case!
Wizards has also released a web-exclusive sixth pre-gen character for use with Keep on the Shadowfell, and it happens to be exactly what I wanted! A Tiefling Warlord! Edit: He also happens to be cross-classed Warlord and Wizard, so that at second level he gains the 1st level Wizard power Scorching Burst.
While ENworld is showing an image from Scott Rouse’s Cubical of Elemental Evil which shows an adventure module for 3rd level characters titled Treasure of Talon Pass, I’m much more interested by another one of the images.
What’s that in the lower right-hand corner?
Uh oh! I can hear the haters screaming already, “How dare the Rouse play World of Warcraft! It’s tainted all of the Wizards staff minds!”
