The Evolution of D&D: Three Versions of 3rd Edition Equipment

The game designers at Wizards of the Coast sometimes joke that they’ve been designing 3rd Edition D&D ever since the release of 2nd Edition. While that’s a bit of an exaggeration, it’s true that the process now in its final stages first began years ago. Using a section of the Player’s Handbook's Equipment chapter as an example, lead designer Jonathan Tweet takes us for a look at some of those early pearls of 3rd Edition game design. Then, travel into the future for a taste of the chapter’s final version in this exclusive online preview.

Read selections from the Equipment chapter of the Player’s Handbook in its various versions, each interspersed with commentary from Jonathan:
