|Vulnerability to sunlight comes as standard|
Josh Fox doesn't think so, and I agree. He's asking Wizards of the Coast to be more representative of their imagery in the new edition of D&D, showing a larger percentage of non-white and female characters depicted respectfully. He's also hoping the demi-humans will not be described as an all-white club any longer.
So, dear readers, if you feel similarly, I suggest you pop on over to the online petition here to ask WotC to consider seeing things our way.
Meanwhile, on a more personal note, I'm all set to give that D&D Next playtest a first run tomorrow. It'll also be my son's first chance to try roleplaying, and not just hear the noisy idiots downstairs whooping and making fools of themselves. Me nervous? You betcha.
