    New tabletop rpg by Chris Metzen of Warcraft fame. Created by his new company Warchief Gaming and it looks to be a pretty good rpg.

      I think it's a serting and adventure book based on 5th edition dungeons and dragons. I really like this because he is building a world on top of a solid ruleset. I'm very interested in this auroboros mechanic and how it will impact the game. The wonderful thing about d&d is that this mechanic could be used in any other adventure. I haven't bought any non wizards d&d products, but I might get this to include in my game (I'm the DM).

    I've been following this from afar from a while – very interested in seeing what Chris Metzen writes. While Warcraft's writing is far from perfect, within games I think it's arguably a masterpiece, and Metzen had large hand in that. For those who aren't aware, Metzen both wrote, and voices Thrall.

    Personally, I have no interested in GMing 5E, but could see adapting this to an OSR system. It's smart business for them to publish for 5E, it is the largest market, but I'm hoping it's not too entangled.
