Yes it's 5e, it looks like a cross between older D&D and 5e, there is not much released yet since all the Manuals aren't out yet, at all, other than the Basic Rules, but the Players Manual is coming out next week. Though from what I've seen so far they've made it very easy to get into since they made a lot of Character Advancement that they had before (Feats and the like) optional and instead made Archetypes required when you hit a certain level. Personally I think it's good for new players, but I personally would stick with 3e or Pathfinder due to the content that it already has and I feel like they are more open ended.

One of the local groups I know admitted they never really read the rulebook, they just played the way it seemed right.

You're actually always welcome to do that, just as long as you understand that its homebrew, and not official content(and don't try to pass it off as such) no one really minds. Some actually encourage that you only use the books as a backbone

For those interested, basic rules can be downloaded from Wizard's webpage for free.
Here my little geeks, enjoy.

Just a thought, if anyone needs quick clarification on anything or just a simple reference doc, you got this.

You glorious bastard it isn't the 19th yet! How did you get that!?! Can you please post or pm me pictures of the full text of the bard class and druid class?

So why not put the edition number on the cover? Could help to avoid confusion as well as people buying out of date supplements to try and use with it.

I've played a smidge of 5e; when the book became available at my local gamestore, they held a midnight release event where about 20 people came to play a 1-shot DnD adventure. There were four groups playing, and they implemented this crazy houserule of magic having a chance to teleport people into different groups, so there was a lot of getting up and changing places with someone else. At one point, I ended up in a group with 3 clerics (me being one of them), and the rest of the groups were wondering where all their healers went. They also mixed in some real rewards with the random loot, and I won a free pop .

As for the rules themselves, they seem pretty good. A lot like 3.5 and Pathfinder, but with some more streamlining to make it simpler to calculate attack bonuses and debuffs (in the other games at high levels, it can get to the point where you need a calculator to keep track of everything). I've only played like, 2 hours of it though, so I can't give a full review, and I'm waiting until someone in my area or current group wants to play 5e before I buy the book.
