    New Unearthed Arcana: Rune Knight, Swarmkeeper, The Revived

    There were other Giants like Ocean Giants, Desert Giants, Death Giants and Eldritch Giants. But in 5e they might have gotten retconned into something that isn't a "True" Giant.

    New Unearthed Arcana: Rune Knight, Swarmkeeper, The Revived

    Well the swarm creatures can be sort of Construct-like, something like Warforged Bees... Though also they could be something like Minidrone Modrons. Take a Monodrone and shrink it's body down to palm-sized.

    New Unearthed Arcana: Rune Knight, Swarmkeeper, The Revived

    They've covered all classes in the PHB now. It'll be: -The start of a new cycle. -Refinements to the ones they just posted. -Class variants/alternative features, they keep on mentioning for something like the Ranger -The super-cantrip using Psion.

    New Unearthed Arcana: Rune Knight, Swarmkeeper, The Revived

    So Swarmkeepers flavour text strongly implies the swarm is all mostly creatures. I'd think rats could have been a viable option, but then that would mean Mage Hand would be like a small tidal wave of rat spirits and flying would be done with a tower of rats. While I certainly see the...

    New Unearthed Arcana: Rune Knight, Swarmkeeper, The Revived

    I like the Rune Knight, it's a reiteration of the concepts from that example Prestige Class they tried, when they wanted to see if any wanted Prestige classes or not. It's something I feel is on par with the Battlemaster in terms of what I want from a Fighter subclass. I like the Swarmkeeper...

    Unearthed Arcana: Cleric, Druid, Wizard Options

    There's been this obsession with wanting a "Generalist" Wizard even though the main reason for it's existence has been rendered obsolete in 5e as all Wizards get access to all schools of magic now. Every time some "Generalist" gets brought up: Traditions are like University degrees. And being a...

    Unearthed Arcana: Cleric, Druid, Wizard Options

    Generally there's 2 routes that Cleric subclasses take, either it's Heavy Armor/Martial Weapons + Divine Strike, or it's Potent Spellcasting. Though with Potent Spellcasting there's a very limited number of damaging Cleric cantrips at the moment (like 2 if you include Xanathar's Guide).

    Unearthed Arcana: Cleric, Druid, Wizard Options

    The wording of "If a false name comes to be the best expression of who you are, it becomes your true name." implies that you could simply say "Batman" when used on Batman to use true name magic on, but saying "Bruce Wayne" wouldn't necessarily work on him though.

    Unearthed Arcana: Cleric, Druid, Wizard Options

    I remember True Name magic from the 3e Tome of Magic being the strongest example of why you shouldn't have a Skill-Roll based system for magic in the D20 system. Which was unfortunate because it had some interesting concepts. The ideas of True Names being tied to the Primeval Language and...

    Unearthed Arcana: Cleric, Druid, Wizard Options

    Onomancer? Why don't they just call the True Namer since it's clearly that class from the 3e Tome of Magic. I almost got the Onomancer subclass mixed up with Oneiromancer (aka Dream Wizard which they should also make a subclass). The presence of such a Wizard means a lot of people are going to...

    5E Eberron: Rising from the Last War Previews

    I always felt that if there were firearms in Eberron it would be the Goblinoids that would have them, but that they would be forgotten inventions from the times of ancient Dhakaan. I think Keith Baker feels that they would instead be a relatively recent invention from a more modern Goblinoid clan.

    5E Eberron: Rising from the Last War Previews

    I wonder if some of the "no firearms in Eberron" policy has been relaxed a little, as the Goblin in the picture has a pistol and the Artillerist's Turrets have been renamed to "Eldritch Cannons". I also see that they're reusing a lot of the Wayne Reynolds art from 3.x era.

    New UA Paladin and Bard.

    The Oath of Heroism could fit anywhere in the alignment spectrum, but I'd argue that believing in the idea of Destiny or Predetermination is philosophically lawful on many levels because it asserts the reality is orderly. Though ones actions and attitudes can most certainly be non-lawful even...

    Have Githzerai always been jerks?

    In Planescape Githzerai are CN, and a lot of the fluff there reflects it. One of the most significant Githzerai was Karan, the factol of the Xaositect faction, but he was completely not like any Githzerai at all. They mainly became LN in 5e because of a poll of asking what their alignment...

    Other than Ranger/Druid being really obvious Green.
