Citing an anonymous “industry source,” the site said the MMO will take place 1,000 years before the time of Skyrim and hundreds of years before any of the other Elder Scrolls titles, near or during the “Second Era,” Tom’s Guide said.

Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition
WotC has announced 5th ed.
You can read about some of our thoughts and concerns in the links below. The articles also contain the links to the articles in Forbes and the Wall Street Journal.
Basically, they are attempting to make a melting pot of D&D. The hope is they will grab the attention of the early players. The players from 20 and 30 years ago, that are still playing. And return them to a universal system. I like the idea, but I believe in the end will fail because there is no real reason for that player to change systems. 5th ed will have to be so unique and so groundbreaking that it makes everything obsolete in the role playing world. I just don’t think a game can be made to do that.
