So, I got the 5e starter kit! My group and I sat down to play it and they all decided to be Aragorn in one form or another. We have Aragorn: the folk hero, Elessar: the wizard, Longshanks: the Noble and Strider: the Rogue. We took sometime figuring out the changes and all have some mixed opinions on how some of the new rules work, but all in all we seem to like it. We began our adventure by taking the adventure hook provided, this lead to an ambush of goblins who seem to have taken advice on building traps from Team Rocket… First a snare and then a pitfall… both within 100ft of each other. They dispatched of the goblins quickly enough and then followed the trail back to their cave.
I now realize we spent far too much time deciding who was playing which Aragorn… Well more to come on this silly adventure.

Andrew decides to try flip a cow. Our DM rolls three crits in a row and the cow kills him. First time D&D has seemed realistic.
Bonus, I’ll give you a super awesome special attack
