Wizards of the Coast has shared with us here at HicksNewMedia and THETechScoop that they have started an open playtest of Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) today, May 24, 2012.  The email states –  “This next phase in the project is the single most important part of D&D Next – the chance for fans to help shape the next iteration of Dungeons & Dragons by sharing their input and vision for the game.”

We wanted to share this information with you because this looks like a fun opportunity to give feedback and shape the course of the latest generation of Dungeons and Dragons. If you’re interested in participating in this open test cycle, please follow the instructions they provided below.

As always, be sure to read the terms and conditions and privacy policy before you “sign on the dotted line.”

 

INSTRUCTIONS FROM WIZARDS OF THE COAST

How to Join the Playtest

To join the playtest, simply visit www.dndnext.com and click the “Start Playtesting Now” button. You will then be prompted with instructions to get started.  (Note: You must have an active Wizards.com account and agree to the set terms and conditions in order to participate.  If you do not already have a Wizards.com account, it is free and easy to sign up.)

 Providing Feedback

In the coming weeks, you will periodically receive emails to the address you provide at sign-up which will contain links to surveys about the playtest materials.  The D&D team wants to hear from as many people as possible, and completing these surveys is the best way to provide feedback and help deliver a great game.
