Been outta the world a spell, would like to get back in w/ the 5e game perhaps. Noticed a lot of the new modules sounded familiar - Taboo, Visions of Lives Past, etc. Are these 5e remakes of the old modules or are they new modules with similar titles?

What's the recommended path for a player of the original 3.5 campaign picking up and starting the 5e game anew?

Hello and welcome back!

The first eight adventures are Introductory ones for people just starting out, so we did reskin those.

Once you get past those (which takes you to about 4th level) you'll start with the Coming of the Destroyer story arc which should be brand new to you.

Not all of the intro mods are old from the days of 3rd edition. Some are adapted from A:RPG adventures. Pick and choose what you run with.

Thanks to both of you. Looking forward to getting involved some again. Trying to make some last minute (5 months in advance? this con has gotten crazy) plans to go to GenCon 50. Looking forward to seeing you guys again.

Henry - care to spoil a little bit whether this new story arc will focus on a particular country/countries or races? Always nice to know when making a character whether you're making an "outsider" or someone deeply enmeshed in the upcoming events.

Without any spoilers. . . Everyone? The coming of thr Destroyer arc set up plots for the Elorii, Coryani, Nierites, Beltinians, Ss'ressen, and we still have lingering plots from Crusade! involving Milandir and the Hinterlands. James' Anchor point from last year drew the League into it as well.

Thanks Cody, the last time I played was during the 3.X campaign, so I missed the entire Legends arc (wanted to be involved, but life) and any events that would have been most impactful there. How's Althares doing these days?

Naughty! :P

Ambassador Tukufu had a different take...
I bumped into Ambassador Tukufu at Starbucks and he wrote:
Altheres? Doing fine. I heard he was behind on Netflix and was binge watching Stranger Things this weekend.

There you have it. Take your pick.

On a more serious note, the people of the Blessed Lands and the Coryani Empire were mostly center stage in the Coming of the Destroyer Arc. With the dwarves, elorii and the Nierites getting some "special" attention as well (be careful of that spotlight!). Milandir was relatively quiet. Mostly crickets for Altheria, Almeric, the League & the Hinterlands.

Given the person driving the action, the War of the Paragons will likely feature Coryan and the Blessed Lands heavily too. And maybe wherever Merric val Cessari is holed up?

Ar'khan, are you one of the old Clemson players? If you're who I think you are, I apparently live near you now.

I am indeed who you think I am. There are a bunch of us in the area now I believe (Mostly my fault :D )
