New classes, races, and other options for your D&D(R) game.

This book builds on the array of classes and races presented in the first Player’s Handbook(R), adding both old favorites and new, never-before-seen options to the game.

The book adds a new power source for 4th Edition D&D; classes using the new primal power source include the barbarian and the druid.

Player’s Handbook 2 expands the range of options available to D&D players with new classes, races, powers, and other material.

  1. You guys should do it. The Dungeons and Drangons podcast has done it a couple of times and it was pretty cool. I don’t really have a prefrance of audio or video because either way it’s bound to be enjoyable.

  2. hola, ¿saben como me puedo subscribir al podcast usando Rhythmbox? (creo que acabo de ampliar su público a “usuarios de linux que hispano parlantes”)

    pense en escribirles en inglés, pero me dio flojera, después de todo pueden pedirle a Rockdrigo que traduzca.

  3. A Majour Spoilers D&D podcast sounds very interesting! Listen to the Penny Arcade D&D podcasts to hear how well it works out as just audio. Video might get prohibitively large for people to download and for you to host.
    To give a brief summary, the game has ‘roles.’ Defenders are the tanks, Strikers are the heavy hitters, Leaders are the healers (among other things) and Controllers apply status affects to large areas. That helps party balance and lets you play the kind of character you want to play.
    As a player, I would recommend you start playing at level 1, learning how it all works. Then, when you’re about level 5, look to recording it. Tip: Never split the party!
    The PHB2 was an excellent addition to the game, adding extra races and classes and feats, character backgrounds and a few other goodies. More importantly, they managed to keep it balanced! That’s quite an achievement.
    P.S. This episode was listed as episode 90 in iTunes.

    Record from the start, i think that would be interesting for most listeners since the majority probably havent played it. (And the learning experience is an awesome thing to follow) It worked for the PVP/PA/Wesley Crusher podcast.

    If you are a DND Vet you can always just pick it up later…I mean you will have to wait anyway.


  5. I say do it. It’ll give me a chance to see what a 4.0 game looks like, haven’t played seriously for like a year and that was 3.5.

  6. Oh,hell yes! You guys should totally do a show for that. I don’t have a ton of D&D experience, but it’s always good fun once I get a game going. I would enjoy knowing how you guys get through a full game, marathon-style.

  7. I swear this podcast is jinxed – I’ve tried downloading it 3 times so far and failed on me each time. I’m going to keep trying though!

  8. I think it would be a great idea. But, if you guys get me into this D&D stuff too, my wife might hunt you down and beat you all up. ;)
