I was pokin’ around, looking at the druid (sub. req.). It’s a very cool take on a controller, possibly better at it than the wizard, and the way they implemented beast form stuff is also neat. Given these powers and abilities, I think that druids are pretty much guaranteed to have interesting choices to make in character creation and combat.

I’m just whining here, so if that doesn’t interest you, I encourage you to move on. 

So I’m officially involved in two D&D games. My friend Avi has run a couple of sessions of his game, and I’ve started my game back up again. These were basically my criteria for subscribing to D&D Insider: running one game, and playing at least one other.

There’s just one problem: I can’t subscribe! Yeah. It’s a bad scene. Apparently there’s something related to my bank not releasing information to Digital River. They’re working on something, allegedly, but in the meantime I am dead in the water. 

As luck would have it, this was before they even announced the character creator beta. I guess you get to keep your existing rate when they launch it, as long as you’ve already subscribed? That’s the icing on the cake. 

Am I desperate enough to beg a friend to pay & I reimburse them? Possibly! I like having D&D stuff to read in between major releases, or even stuff to rip off for existing campaigns. I’m also burning with curiosity about the bard, which was among my least favorite classes from 3e. Is it cool, or is it merely viable?

Actually, speaking of which, isn’t Martial Power out this week? I’m a little bit afraid of power creep but some of the new builds sound terribly interesting. I’m quite curious to see how they manage the economy of actions with regard to the beastmaster ranger. Or does it slow down play as someone has two sets of abilities to choose from? I MUST KNOW.
