Last night I finally got to sit down and play 5e. Titan Games is running D&D Encounters with 2 full tables. 2 hour sessions, running through Horde of the Dragon Queen. I was under the impression that the Encounters sessions were going to run something in the Tyrany of Dragons story line, but something other than this adventure. Which is why I didn't worry about picking up Horde of the Dragon Queen a couple of weeks ago, and reading through it.

I can say, thus far at least, it hasn't spoiled my fun, and I'll do my best to refrain from using my knowledge at the table. With 5 or 6 other players every week, that shouldn't be a problem.
As for how it went? It was great! It felt like D&D, it played like D&D. First level is still pretty squishy. I'd have gone down if I had been playing a wizard of any other race at least twice. The dragonborn thief constantly was having to make death saves. The fighter (will be a barbarian next week) dropped once, as did the paladin, and I think just about everyone else came close too.
On top of that, I'm going to try my hand at running 5e on Sundays, since I haven't managed to get any interest in DCC.
This was the other table, showing us up with their fancy headgear...
