As I was leaving with my family today for some early season Sugar Shacking (it’s not as dirty as it sounds, unless you eat without utensils) the Fed Ex truck stopped by my place and delivered the copy I was so eager to get.
My good friend Ed of Atomic Array fame arranged for a few RPG bloggers to get advanced copies in exchange for a series of cross-blog posts coinciding with the book’s market release on March 17th.
I’ll be reading it over the next few days. However, contrary to my fevered reading of the first tome of that name to learn the rules of the game, I’m going to be much more laid back. Since I will likely not be playing much (I only played a 4e PC once and that was at Gen Con), I’ll breathing in the fluff about Races and classes fishing for campaign ideas.
So far I’ve read the races and the racial paragon paths (Can someone say Winged Dragonborn?). Right now, I have a slight preferences for the Devas (reincarnated astral spirits) and the Goliaths (Big mountain dwelling stonefaced people).
In order not to leave you empty handed, and since some of my readers are not exactly the same as Dave’s over at Critical-Hits, I too will gladly answer question about the contents of the book, provided that you understand that I will not post direct excepts of the book.
Talk to you later, I’m going back into the book so I can answer your questions.
