Wizards of the Coast is celebrating the release of the Player’s Handbook 2 this weekend with their third Worldwide D&D Game Day. Head to a local game store and run through a fun adventure with some pregenerated characters that will let you try out the new races and classes.
If you’ve been waiting for a chance to try out 4th Edition D&D, or just want to check out the new PHB2 goodies, Worldwide Game Day is a great way to do it. The official page will show you the way to the nearest participating game store. Maybe you’ll find a new local shop, and meet some new players while you’re at it. All the fun goes down on Saturday, March 21.
Just what will you be doing at Game Day? Running through a 2-3 hour adventure called “One Dark Night in Weeping Briar.” You’ll have your pick of pre-rolled characters using the new races and classes from PHB2 (plus a sneak preview of some Divine Power material).
We just received a hot-off-the-presses copy of the new Handbook here at Robot Viking – this week and next, we’ll be going over the eight new classes one at a time. And if you’d like to connect with other D&D fans and discuss the new stuff, head over to the brand new D&D Facebook page. Tell ‘em Robot Viking sent you!
