We had our first full session of 4ED today. I played a dragonborn ranger named Vinnias Hogsqueel that wielded two battlesaxes. Conan played a gnome warlock with a propensity of lighting forests on fire and Cam played a human warlord that basically kept the group alive. Apparently 3 level 2 kobolds and 4 minions accounts for a decent challenge for 1st level players, especially me, who couldn't roll above 6 for eight rolls straight. We called ourselves The Repo Men, under oath from our lord...the Repo Man.
The Racial templates passed Alpha and are moving to Beta, meaning we will start contacting potential playtesters soon.
