WOTC has made the announcement that confirms the rumours: they're working on a 5th edition for D&D. Few people are surprised, but that's not why I'm writing. When I heard the announcement of an announcement, I figured it would be 5e, but I wasn't prepared for my gut reaction.
What's 5e about?
How will it do that?
Yep. That was my reaction. Not, "Yeah yeah, another version of a fighting game" or "wow, another version of a game I won't ever play" or anything else cynical like that. I'm genuinely interested to know what it's about and how it's going to do that better than any other game that professes to be about the same thing, including previous editions of D&D.
