In this episode, we discuss the latest playtest material. We talk about what we like and don’t like, and Wayne makes a case for elves of colour. We also come up with a winning business strategy for Wizards of the Coast to follow for D&D Next.*

RPG Rookies is a series for new GMs and players or for more experienced GMs and players who like to complain about “obvious advice”. In First Step, we discuss the questions GMs and players need to ask themselves before playing a game, including which games will help you pull. Kidding. None of them will. We also offer some advice for those intimidated by 400-page rulebooks.
In this installment of Creature Features, we continue to redefine what a “creature” is. We look at the mysterious, sexy and dangerous femme fatale and the lesser known homme letal (probably because we coined it).
