    The point of 5e was supposed to be that it could be whatever edition you wanted it to be.

    But hey, if this project keeps you busy enough so you don't rant about Star Wars, go for it.
    I like theory crafting, I'm not doing the work my pet us more advanced b/x using 5E rules and microfeats.

    His intent was clear. 4e has a more restricted license for developing potential content whereas 5e does not. So if one wants to expand content for something more 4e like (or an evolution thereof), then 5e would potentially serve as a better chassis due to its less restricted license. So how would one do that. If you wouldn't, then that's fine.

    @Zardnaar, I would also look at the d20 3.X license as well, especially given how 13th Age was developed.

    Yeah using 3E license would be the idea if you want to publish. Doesn't mean you have to use 3E though.

    An area that I think is worth exploring is 5e players against 4e monster design. I still consider that the best part of 4e, and would love to see the 4e monsters get some 5e stats but keeping with a lot of the 4e abilities they had. Though....I would stick with the 5e names, some of those 4e descriptions were a bit hokey

    A lot of the pieces are there in 5e. It would probably be easier to use 4E Essentials as the basis since there is more overlap there.

    Converting the spell casters into Encounter/Daily wouldn't be too hard. I'd vote to "start" the game at 3rd level, and offer levels 1 and 2 as apprentice levels. When you first get a spell level, it is a daily spell, and then you alternate converting them to encounters so you end with 1st as at-will, 2-5 as encounter, and 6-9 as daily. Utilities are kind of replaced by class abilities in 5E, but you could go either way.
