5e "pre" thoughts

After reading thru a few reviews, so far it seems that the reaction to 5e seems to be on the overall quite positive.  I am going to try and download it at some point today and check it out.  From what I gather its missing monsters & magic items etc.  Of course what do you want for free.  That got me thinking, when I first got the 2e PHB & DMG, I also got a module (rather than the monster manual).  Viola monsters! and a few magic items.  Sometimes its best to let your imagination run wild.  I even went back to kotb at the time and grabbed some stats from there.  If you really wanted to be on the cheap, I'd suggest the above, grab the basic free pdf and whatever module comes out and there yah go.  Obviously though it is smarter to grab everything if you plan to go "all in".  Anyways, that's my 2 cents, I'll be downloading it later today just to check it out and see.  In the meantime i've been reading thru Mutant Future and quite loving it.  The only issue so far is that a lot of the monsters are quite powerful.  I think the first adventure I run I"ll have to have a few hirelings "meat" around just to help out the odds a bit.  I've been looking for a decent rumor table that I can modify for post apocalyptic adventure ideas, I have yet to find anything very interesting.

PS that was a bunch of A.D.D.
