  1. I don’t mean to be a jerk about this (which, I realize, is pretty jerk-y… sigh), but just for the purpose of precision… WotC has released two things so far:
    – the Starter Set, which is pretty cheap ($20 retail, amazon for like $12). The adventure included in it goes to level 5.
    – D&D Basic, which is a 100+ page pdf they’ve released for free that contains all the rules needed to play a full campaign (more or less), including leveling up all the way to level 20. It doesn’t include any optional elements (special magic items, feats, etc) and has only the core four races and one build each of the core four classes.

    Then again, I suspect many of your listeners know this already… sigh again. Thank you for accommodating my compulsiveness.
