    D&D 5E Unearthed Arcana: Travelers of the Multiverse

    I think you're meaning the stellar parallax, not stellar proper motion. Proper motion was already suspected in ancient times, and was proven as time went on and certain stars such as Arcturus had obviously shifted from their position over the centuries. Stellar parallax was the real bump in the...

    D&D 5E Unearthed Arcana: Travelers of the Multiverse

    The article you link, as well as the crystal spheres you mention, are what I assume what he was trying to say. The stars were believed to be attached to the outermost crystal sphere. Granted, it's not quite "holes in a dome", but it's fairly close...

    D&D General why brass and bronze dragons?

    There were four or five ages of man (depending on who was writing), and they always included a Silver Age. Ages of Man - Wikipedia

    Fizban's Treasury of Dragons: An In-Depth Review

    As others have said, bronze dragons have a pretty unique and memorable niche, and bronze as an important metal/alloy historically does give them a bit of prestige. I have no issues with bronze being a dragon type for these reasons. Brass, on the other hand, is a fairly unprestigious alloy, and...

    Fizban's Treasury of Dragons: An In-Depth Review

    Good point there! Odd then that brown dragons never became one of the main types of D&D dragons though, and only remained a minor subtype...

    Fizban's Treasury of Dragons: An In-Depth Review

    Gold - Silver - Bronze is something of a natural progression because of the Olympic Medals and the Ages of Man. And gold - sliver -copper makes sense as the traditional currency order. Brass is always what gets me; it just doesn't seem to fit anywhere and is just kind of random. If anything...

    D&D General Your quick post-it-note DM reminder

    Ha! That is exactly what I was going to say too!

    D&D 5E Unearthed Arcana: Travelers of the Multiverse

    I mean, in a game where people can throw fireballs, raise the dead, and wish things into existence, as well has have obviously un-aerodynamic dragons being able to fly with ease, it does seem a bit much to complain that the astrophysics of the game system need to be more scientifically accurate...

    Fizban's Treasury of Dragons: An In-Depth Review

    The 3e art in the MM2 was just disappointing for me. The illustrations just looked rough and unfinished, especially the amethyst and crystal dragons, with awkward poses. The color versions of the 2e gem dragons were ok, but a bit bland, as they didn't bring out the "gem-ness" of them. I mostly...

    D&D 5E Unearthed Arcana: Travelers of the Multiverse

    Wildspace is the area inside the crystal spheres, where the planetary systems are. Most of the action in Spelljammer takes places either in Wildspace or the planets therein.

    D&D 5E Unearthed Arcana: Travelers of the Multiverse

    The real kicker is that there are no indisputably Planescape-specific races in the UA. If they had thrown in bariaur or rogue modron, then we would conclude that there's a mix. All we have is the Astral Elves, which are an unknown quantity here. The other five are definitely Spelljammer races...

    D&D 5E Unearthed Arcana: Travelers of the Multiverse

    Yes, it probably would. There are several Planescape-specific races that they would want to put out for playtest, like baraur and rogue modron, among others.

    Which is why I stated "Outer Planes". Spelljammer does indeed cover this for the Material Plane...

    D&D 5E Unearthed Arcana: Travelers of the Multiverse

    Since we're seeing something of a Multiverse theme for 2022 stuff so far, I'm leaning a bit toward Spelljammer and Planescape being our two classic settings next year, one in the spring and one in the autumn.

    D&D 5E Unearthed Arcana: Travelers of the Multiverse

    Most large-scale trade on the Outer Planes goes through the gate towns on the Outlands anyway. Stable (as long as people there don't start strongly believing in something!), and large enough for trading.
