    Not bad! Your line of thinking matches my own on some things and I definitely want to see where how this turns out.

  • 06:34 PM - Remathilis quoted vecna00 in post Artificer UA to be released in February
    I watched the latest Dragon+ Q&A with Crawford today. At the very end, he mentioned that the Artificer was still on track for release this month, but it may not be Monday. It may be the 28th instead. he also said that going forward, they're going to be more flexible on the release of UAs. They want tie it to playtesting things in future books. They may be holding onto things to put them in better shape in order to get the best feedback possible. It sounds like they'll shoot for the second Monday, but it could be any day some months.Crawford is testing my patience. I want the artifcer yesterday! :-(

There's no need to put out a UA just to put out a UA and not actually test anything. There was quite a few released in the past that were just there or the designers playing with a concept rather than something that was actively being worked on.

    I haven't listened to Dragon Talk yet, but I did give Crawford's update on the UAs going forward in the Artificer thread. I'm thinking one of two things will happen next week: Either Morgrave's Miscellany will drop along with the Artificer, or we'll get the full announcement of the Nautical book with an article in Dragon+ about it. Or maybe both? Both is always good! Exciting times. I think coordinating a press release about the new book with a big spread in Dragon+ would make solid sense.

    I'm still trying to figure out what this is...but I'm very intrigued! Yeah I didn't pick up on what type of book this would be. For all I can figure out it could be an art book. Which may not be a bad thing but I certainly cannot set any expectations or even hype from what I read.

    So Kate Welch tweeted this out a few hours ago. Could be nothing, could be something. https://twitter.com/katewelchhhh/status/1086089803714547713 Based on Dragon Talk, it sounds like they might make an announcement at PAX South in the next 2-3 days.
  • 04:54 AM - AdmundfortGeographer quoted vecna00 in post Spring's D&D Release Will Be Ship-Themed
    In 2020, there will be a couple of products that will touch on cultures that don't usually get exposure in their products — “I will say that in 2019 I don’t think that we’re going to get much more culturally diverse with the content that’s in there, but in 2020 we’re going to go…really…lots of different diverse stuff that brings in some different cultures and some different influences. We’re bringing in a lot of consultants this year to kind of vet the product…make this stuff… You won’t see much of it in 2019, but 2020 products I think will have a couple major products that have a lot of influence from cultures that we have not really touched on before that I think are pretty prevalent. I don’t want to give away too much, but I’m proud of the influences and the work that they’re doing, and how they’re doing it.” My late guess, Persia and South Asia could be rich sources.

    As soon as the psionics rules are finished, Dark Sun will be around the corner* in either PDF or print. *Relatively speaking, of course. Well here's hoping you're right, and they don't take another 4 years playtesting the thri-kreen

  • 03:37 AM - Enevhar Aldarion quoted vecna00 in post Artificer UA to be released in February
    Makes me wonder how close to the finished product this will be. Side thought: The last time there was a significant delay to a UA, it was pushed back to the day Wayfinder's Guide was released for the big Eberron reveal. Makes me wonder if there is something else big brewing that is Eberron related. Maybe this will be included in Wayfinder's Guide day and date, or maybe the long-awaited Morgrave's Miscellany will drop the same day? Everything I have seen marks this as the final playtest for the class, unless something goes horribly wrong with it and everyone hates it. lol Also, I forgot to point something out about this announcement that others may have missed. It is not just saying the Artificer is coming in Feb, but that they are not giving us a UA article at all in Jan so that they can focus on the Artificer.

    It could totally be both! But, there won't be an adventure in the book, in my speculation. There could be adventure hooks and maybe even campaign hooks, but no actual adventure within the book. Their discussion made it sound pretty supplement like, though they danced around any solid details.

    This next book screams supplement, not adventure, to me. It'll probably have ALL (tm) of the nautical rules. What exactly that will involve...I don't know. Will there be new races, backgrounds, subclasses, or feats? Maybe? If this were an older edition, it would definitely include all of these things. There will probably be monsters though, that will fill half a book! Why can't it be both, like they did with Dragon Heist? Half the book or so about the ships and combat and sea monsters and half low-level adventures aboard ship.
  • 07:01 AM - doctorbadwolf quoted vecna00 in post Spring's D&D Release Will Be Ship-Themed
    If that is a good idea? Ships don't work really well in most RPGs. IME, they work great. This next book screams supplement, not adventure, to me. It'll probably have ALL (tm) of the nautical rules. What exactly that will involve...I don't know. Will there be new races, backgrounds, subclasses, or feats? Maybe? If this were an older edition, it would definitely include all of these things. There will probably be monsters though, that will fill half a book! The last player options expansion book was full of races, so i'm guessing we will see mostly the sorts of things we saw in Xanathar's, but that pattern might be coincidental. Almost certainly we will see the stuff we saw in the UA article, some new monsters, lots of ship stat blocks, probably new ship weapons, new monsters, new stuff related to exploration, and a lot of lore and advice on running nautical adventures. I hope we get new feats, fighting styles, spells, magic items, and mundane gear, and more new downtime stuff than the...

    If I remember correctly, the uncertainty about another setting product in 2019 was only in regards to a new Magic in D&D setting. I'll have to watch it again to make certain though. You nailed everything else! My read on it was that they had waited for feedback to see if they wanted to move forward with another full setting book, and now that they know they want to do it Stewart is hesitant to commit to a 2019 release. But, you might be right or he might have been imprecise (which is the danger of off-the-cuff hedge-y spoilers). If their next planned setting book is Eberron, making sure everything is polished might get it bumped of the year, but Stewart might not be certain at this point. They did certainly succeed in getting me pumped for the year.

    I caught that too, but I didn't put much stock in it in that moment, someone had mentioned it in the Twitch chat. It'll still probably happen though! It's certainly something they want to do eventually, but the cagey way they were behaving, the description of when they could talk about it, and then his slipping the Dragonlance by name accidentally anyways...I think we might see DL sooner rather than later.

    I forgot, I have screencaps! 103948 103951 103949 103950 The first and fourth look like they might be legit cover art, though the names seem like goofs. I recall that titles for 5E books have been usually decided late in development, as legal clears a number of possibilities for trademark.
  • 10:56 PM - Parmandur quoted vecna00 in post Spring's D&D Release Will Be Ship-Themed
    That about sums up everything that was talked about. However, they missed something important: one of the mock-ups was called "Boats and :):):):):)" which is fantastic! I kind of hope they keep "Everything you need to float your boat for the world's greatest roleplaying game." I am getting a strong "Volo's with more boats" vibe here, which I dig.
  • 10:09 PM - Parmandur quoted vecna00 in post Spring's D&D Release Will Be Ship-Themed
    Indeed, they're going to take a deeper plunge in Eberron this year and the hardcover is pretty much a given. I believe it was the last Happy Fun Hour, where Mearls had mentioned that the next iteration of the Artificer is coming "Soon. Not this month, but soon." Could very well be a January drop! I'm looking forward to seeing any of the smaller things they might do, like possibly more campaign setting pdfs! They have been working on the Artificer for two years at this point. If the next iteration meets public approval, it'll be go time. I see Dark Sun going a similar way in the next year or so.
  • 09:57 PM - Parmandur quoted vecna00 in post Spring's D&D Release Will Be Ship-Themed
    They did mention they have a team of 25 people. So a fourth book could feasibly slip out of the calendar year depending on how the work goes on it. My pet hypothesis is that they are looking to do a full hardcover Eberron book, and that might depend on how testing goes for the final Artificer...
