D&D Release Dates

It’s been a while since I did the whole RPG thing. AD&D, AD&D 2nd Edition, and D&D 3rd Edition all played a very large, some would say huge, role in my youth. That was then, this is now. And I never even read the 4th edition D&D boxed set rules that I picked up. So perhaps the most interesting thing about this for me is that the Player’s Handbook is being released on my birthday.
I haven’t followed the development of this latest edition at all. I have no idea what will change and what will be the same. I know nothing. But… I will probably pick up these three books, just for a weird mix of nostalgia and curiosity. Hopefully they’ll come out with a boxed set for Christmas, then maybe I could get them for free / as a gift.
