Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition has been finalized and announced, and the books are available for pre-order. List price is currently $50 per book, and with the 3 main books, you’re looking at a $150 start-up cost.
I’m not surprised at all, as this is Wizards we are talking about. Wizards seems to be getting greedier as time goes on. I’ll probably still purchase the Player’s Handbook, Monster Manual, and Dungeon Master’s Guide. Aside from those 3 books, I’ll be downloading any extra books.
The 5e changes look like a big improvement over 4e. I’m looking forward to playing the new edition.
