D&D 4th Edition Players Handbook 2 Slated for March
A new layer of source material is slated to ship this spring, just nearly a year after the launch of D&D's 4th Edition. Coming down the pipe this year are new focused supplements, a new overarching Monster Manual 2, and a Dungeon Master Guide 2 slated for release this September.
But it's the D&D 4th Edition Player's Handbook 2 [Amazon, Funagain] that kicks-off things in March. The stand alone release extends the current Players Handbook materials with 224 pages of with new races, new classes, and new abilities that expand upon the already vast suite of slick things to chose from when making your own character from scratch.
Here are some of the details:
Player's Handbook 2 expands the range of options available to D&D players with new classes, races, powers, and other material.
This 224-page book builds on the array of classes and races presented in the first Player's Handbook, adding both old favorites and new, never-before-seen options to the game. Some of the racial options include the gnome, shifter, and half-orc. The classes featured include old favorites like the barbarian, druid, bard, and sorcerer.
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.
It's crazy to think that a second iteration of source materials are preparing for launch, and yet the D&D Insider Tools we coveted so seem to be on the vaporware horizon. Come on guys, get cracking!
