    Never played Saga, but it doesn't look too much like 2e.
    Human, Elf, Dwarf, Genasi, Half-Elf, Halfling, Dragonborn, Tiefling

    Cleric, Fighter, Rogue and Wizard are the current provided classes. Obviously this won't be the only set of classes available, but it's what we've got to play with for now.

    Fighters are significantly more diverse. The game is really going in the direction of play whatever class you want however you like. Fighters get a good amount of diversity. We only have the first ten levels to go on. (There are tiers like in the last game, but we haven't heard anything about epic destinies capping the campaign, so maybe we're back to 4e's limitless level?)

    As it stands, we've got some different paths to branch out into. Feats aren't nearly as boring and mechanical as they were in 4e. They're almost like powers now, or more interesting, static bonuses, and fighters get some extra ones. But this isn't surprising, every class right now can acquire certain class-specific feats for free.

    The current fighter setups we're supposed to focus on are a tank-fighter that is much like the basic 4e one, except a little less "gamey," a warlordesque fighter (a ton of feats support this style of martial badassery), and a man-at-arms fighter that will fuck your shit up, much like the Slayer fighter from Essentials in concept.

    Wizards we've been given a bit of leeway with, playtest-wise. We've basically been told, "Okay, here are some spells that a wizard can use, we're not totally sure if we should go for a 3.5 model, a 4e model, or something new yet, so fiddle with this." As a wizard, you're going to be able to choose how versatile you are right now. There are a decent amount of spells, and they scale with level. They're more "different" than in 4e. Encounter stuff is here to stay, though. It seems that ever since the concept appeared in ToB, Wizards will never lose their love of per encounter abilities.

    The typical wizard will play with a fair number of encounter spells at this point in time. It's a sort of pick-and-choose from your current spells-per-encounter list. It's not YOU MUST USE EACH OF THESE ONCE. More versatility. It's good.

    To be honest, I did enjoy it, but I'm not a huge fan of D&D at the moment. I stopped playing a while ago. I've gone onto heavier roleplaying games, and the sample adventures they want us to try out just aren't that interesting. We've got a copy of that convention adventure "Caves of Chaos," and it's pretty shitty. Generic dungeon crawl meant to test out new combat mechanics/skills.

    Yeah, Ivory Tower design is in there. But it's just a

    No, I mean, as opposed to the static bonuses that exist in 4e. Stuff that really influences your playstyle.

    There's one feat "Back to the Wall," that gives you a pretty decent bonus to attacks when you're flanked or suffering from similar conditions. Or the "Warmage" feat, that can convert your spells into touch-range stuff, but increase the damage die.

    >save for Fighter diversity being rooted in feats, anyway
    Oh, no. I'm sorry if you interpreted that wrong. Every class gets extra feats to define themselves. They still get class bonuses like everyone else.

    Cleric really hasn't seen a lot of touching upon. Right now, we've got a standard healer cleric, a fire-and-brimstone cleric, which is a lot like the Invoker, and a warpriest.

    Rogues have Scoundrel, which is a thief/typical rogue, Assassin, which is obvious, and Acrobat, which is severely underpowered and awful in every way.

    Wizard is interesting, because it's a specialization based on which defense besides AC that their spells will affect. You've got Evokers that have primarily reflex-save spells, Enchanters that have will-save spells, and Abjurers, that have fort-save spells. It's interesting, but the wizard feels so bare that I'm certain that Wizards is going to give them more shit.

    Wizards can do some cool shit again, and I don't blame them, considering 4e made them considerably lamer flavor-wise than they were in 3.5.

    Basically, the higher the level you are, the more spells you have access to. You've got this spell pool. You build your character to have X at-will, X encounter and X daily spells. Say you've got five spell points to spend. You know Magic Missile, so you decide to throw that into your at-will spell pool so you have it all the time. Four points left. Next, a utility spell - Disguise Person. Three points left. Burning Hands. Two points. Conjurer's Shield. One point. Then, with that point, you decide to take Hypnosis, a daily spell. Zero points. That's it.

    So now, your first level Wizard can always cast Magic Missile. Once per day, he can toss a Hypnosis, and every fight, he can throw any combination of Disguise Person, Burning Hands and Conjurer's Shield, to a maximum of three.

    Sounds like they are taking a bit, like encounter based powers for wizards so they can still cast SOMETHING after a 15 minute workday, from fourth and some from pathfinder ( which took quite a bit from 3.5)

    Class based bonuses that pathfinder have really flush out characters ( fighter comes to mind as he's not just a pile if feats)

    Breaks down into static gold costs of abilities granted ( poison immunity has a gold value for example) and style choices. Some are chosen and provided for you, set class features that determine your fighting style like rage or sneak dice, some are more open but still fixed, like rogue talents or options from a list, while some are more open ended and let you create more of a free form character ( fighter's bonus feats)

    Acrobat is bad because it is based around maneuvering. That's it. You lose sneak attack and get some stupid damage bonus whenever you move, kind of like the 3.5 Scout's skirmish. The problem is that it's tied to skill checks. The better you do, the more you hurt. But if you fuck up, you aren't doing any extra damage. And the bonus damage when you DO succeed is so low that the rogue's base sneak attack damage is just worth more.
    >Tell us how powerful or what the 'cool shit' Wizards can do is like.
    It's just that he can do more than be an evoker, like in 4e, where a ton of spells were just plain offensive. There's a lot of out-of-combat utility stuff, but not really auto-succeed spells. Stuff I mentioned, like Disguise Person, usually facilitates roleplaying experiences.
    >How is healing handled?
    Surges are still in, but you get significantly less of them. You don't need them to be healed, but you can choose to expend them. You can also spend those surges to bolster your actions.
    No, spells are pre-assigned a slot they'd take.

    Want me to copy-paste some shit to word? The feats section, maybe?

    Pretty okay, from what I hear. The monsters use simplified stat progression.

    Magic items are currently being worked out. They threw a few things into the playtest document. We've been playing by the "no items" assumption. It works a lot like it does in the Dark Sun book. You get some free inherent bonuses, at the cost of magic items being scarcer.

    There are scrolls again, though, so that's cool. Wizards can throw their at-will/encounter/daily spells on them, and people can arcana check them out. But it costs an action point so you can't spam them to fuck.
    Using the essentials design for races. +2 automatically to one stat, +2 to one of two stats. Humans are as plain as ever. Everyone gets some form of racial bonus, but it doesn't have to be a power anymore. Dwarves, for example, have no power.

    Touhoufag's been banned for, what, over a year now? And IIRC he wasn't very active for a while before he got banned, especially with the janitor hounding him...

    To clarify, all signs point to the janitor provoking him, and basically tricking the then-mod, who likely wasn't familiar with /tg/, into banning him. It was the janitor, not the mod. Big(ish) difference.

    Font changes wouldn't matter in a copypaste, as you can just change the font as you want.

    But font size is an unlikely choice. As is color. Typos are also possible, but also unlikely. It's probably just some watermarking as everyone else does with their saleable pdfs.

    OP, and the rest of this thread, I know we're all eager for the info, but as someone who's worked with NDA's before, I'd like to ask that OP refrain and simply give generalizations. I don't care if his posts lack validity if the proof is going to cost someone their job or livelyhood and will be patient enough to wait for open beta or even to look at the PhB for 5e rather than mess up WOTC's release schedule. A lot of work goes into these things, and an early release will generate either false expectations from last minute changes or legal issues for the people involved. We love our games here, and I'd like to think that WOTC cares enough about them to put some genuine effort into bringing the good aspects of their previous D&D games together into something we can all enjoy, so please continue the discussion, but don't do anything that's likely to result in trouble for the people involved in the project.

    The janitor had been deleting his on-topic posts for months prior, basically "because".

Trying to keep your one, on-topic, relevant thread alive because it keeps 404ing for no reason? You tell me.

    The janitor deleted that one particular thread, which had turned into a shitstorm of epic proportions and had gone completely off topic. Touhoufag kept posting it over and over. I never saw any evidence the janitor deleted anything but that one particular thread. At some point, you'd figure he would take the hint and do something besides copy+paste the exact same thing over and over.

    /tg/ doesn't *have* mods. Mods are site-wide, not board-specific. "Our" mod only seems wacky because on most other boards, he'd be considered normal. They come here, don't understand the culture, and fuck up. Like some westerner in an arab country putting their feet on a table and aiming them at a guy on the other side. Here? No big. There?

    So does everyone have bonus feats, or are fighters back to being the bonus feat guys? Personally, I'm OK with the idea that being good in combat means you put lots of feats into combat, and fighters have more feats. You don't really need to give them a high BAB on top of that, as long as the advanced combat feats are as good as the advanced spells.
