Thanks for passing this along and I am sorry to here this.

;D  LOL! ;D

Looks like we will launch near the end of May.  Working on getting a web site up prior to launching.  Dice Towers are a side product, not his main products:  Custom Gaming Tables.  His Dice Towers will out-sell his Tables by many miles, but that's OK, the Dice Towers are a wonderful item to have.  I carry mine to/from games, as I really enjoy using them, compared to rolling dice on the tabletop.

Always hated rolling d4's:  they nearly always just plopped out of my hand, onto the table, without really, "rolling".  As seen in the videos, the d4's really bounce, and spin, as they travel through the baffles.  What the videos do not show, is how fast they go through!  It is amazing to watch the slow-motion videos, then to roll dice through a Tower, yourself.  They move very fast!

I really enjoy the clatter of the dice as they bounce through the Towers.  It is fun to roll a handful of dice, at once -- they make quite the exciting noise as they blast through.  Cheers!

I hate rolling d4s and have pretty much eliminated them from my D&D games.

I have a dice tower I got a while back but never really use it. I like that these have the transparent side to see the rolling. I need to get one of those custom gaming tables some day.

Thanks.  I wish they were selling pdfs instead of trying the subscription model.  Such is life.

While they aren’t PDFs, the subscription is for accessing more than 6 characters in the character builder or for sharing your content with other players. If you just want electronic versions of the books then that is just one time purchases.  Plus the all the tools work with those products that you have purchased with no subscription fee.

The offline version of DDB through the iPhone and android apps being tested rijght now and works great. It is just Kindle like books for now.

I think you can get pdf's of 5E core books and adventures, IF you join as a paying member on Fantasy Grounds and or D&D Beyond.

You don’t need a paid subscription for D&D Beyond. You can just buy content. It isn’t pdfs but online access to the material. They are working on an offline app (for iOS and Android) that is like an ebook reader but will have additional functionality in the future.

I am quite enjoying 5e as well. As much fun as I had playing BX and 1e, 5e is the game I really wanted to be playing (I just didn't know it). :)

I do love converting old BX and 1e modules for 5e. Although I am just starting my first 5e AP (atomb of Annihilation).

Glad you are okay. Didn't realize we had any Houstonians on the board. Good luck on the up coming recovery.

Looks like Frank Mentzer will be Kickstarting a new campaign setting that is double statted with BECMI and 5e stats. It apparently will be a little known region of Greyhawk.

Also keep in mind that ACs are typically lower than previous editions as well.

WotC D&D / Started a new 5e game last week

For my three sons and 3 of my middle son's friends, and they are loving it.  The three friends hadn't played any RPG before. One of them is going nuts for it and his parents say he talks about the game all the time. His mother bought him a D&D shirt (the picture is the cover of the Cook Epert book) and she got me a dungeon master shirt.

I kind of prefer the pseudo technology of this movie to the more magic based tech of Spelljammer. You can however bring in Spelljammer concepts like air in space.
