They're showing the celebrity game from Gencon on you tube now.
Elven wizard, dwarven fighter, halfling rogue I think the three selected from the audience played a dragonborn paladin ("very" badly although very funny!), tiefling warlock (surprisingly effective) and a human Cleric I think.
Very, very funny I only wish they advertised this release better rather than what feels like relying on word of mouth...
Please correct me here if they have been advertsing it since the Rad show was about all I noticed and I've cancelled preordering this three times because of the lack of comments on it.
I've got issue 0 of the new d&d comic but the series only really begins later this year and I really wish they step up their game not hide it from all and sundry, the robot chicken video's they released last year or so was great but why aren't they highlighting the celebrity game accordingly?

I think the doctor is referring to the 3e and 3.5 starter sets. Each came with 4 player figures as well as enough prepainted monsters for the included adventure. The 3e one came with a medium black dragon and the 3.5 one came with a large blue dragon.
Eh, I think id rather have a pathfinder box. Maybe blue or something with some wayne reynolds art. 4e isnt a good way to start D&D.
You are so right, a Pathfinder starter box would be awesome. The red box is nostalgic and attracts old players but Pathfinder's art is so awesome that it draws you in to at least look more. And with the pathfinder system they can make a bare bones version for new players to explain the simple aspects of the game. Maybe exclusive classes that are easy for new users to understand the basics of the game Warrior, Mage, Theif, & Healer, classes that are good at a basic job and are not too full of options to confuse new player so that when they understand the game more they can try the other classes
I liked 'em better when they actually had miniatures in them.
There is a you tube video somewhere that has wotc stating that miniatures are the next step in gaming from using a pencil eraser end to cut-out miniatures. I'd pay the extra $5-$15 for actual minis if the came in the starter kit. Reaper had a plastic line, it would be awesome if they added it to a Pathfinder starter kit.
I know this is just wishfull thiinking but if anyone is listening that would be awesome.....:)
