Welcome to another exciting edition of Dungeons and Dragons Theater!  This is not the comic I had planned for tonight, but midway through the day I realized it was launch date for the new starter set, and I knew it was time for another theater trip!  I’m sure you all ran out and picked up your own copy, right?  Right?!?

Actually maybe it’s just me that can’t help himself from grabbing the box sets whenever they come out.  I have such fond memories of my first, the pink box, I guess I’m just waiting for the time when the rules return to something as sensible as those.  I will be sure to devour every page over the weekend as, from what I’ve read on the net thus far, this version has promise.  We’ll see…

Speaking of the pink box, this new box is a nice homage to that set… minus the torch wielding wizardess, of course.  It’s a bit simple for my tastes… more Pathfinders looking than D&D, but that is probably a deliberate choice.

In any case, I’ve cracked open the box, and it has that new dice smell, so I’ve got some rolling to do…
