    5E 3 Classic Settings Coming To 5E?

    I feel that eventually they should try to have a campaign setting that touches on the "Flintlock Fantasy" genre. I remember there was an free online Savage Coast Campaign guide which is part of Mystara, that did touch a little on the genre. So I guess if one wants to distinguish Mystara from the...

    5E Psionics in Tasha

    I'm still waiting to see if we eventually get the proposed Psion class that Mearls tinkered with in a UA, that one used spell slots like any other caster, but the spell slots could be used to enhance some special cantrips the class got.

    5E Psionics in Tasha

    No they weren't, 3e started treating psionics as magic and 3.5e went further in that regard with stating that it's the default that psionics can be affected by magic. For almost the last 20 years psionics has been magic, it's just that it's often used different mechanics.

    One thing I'm sure they'll do about Bards in Dark Sun, is just say that certain Bards allowed in Dark Sun (like the College of Whispers) are using Psionics, that way they can step around the whole preserver or defiler thing.

    5E Psionics in Tasha

    Divine magic doesn't necessarily need Gods either (dependant on campaign setting).

    5E Are components (V,S,M) and schools in spell writeups really necessary for spells anymore?

    My other idea of the traditional 8 schools being unnecessary sort of would be something like that. In many ways schools (and psionic disciplines) are a keyword, but keywords on spells in 5e aren't what they're like in previous editions or other games. I think schools should should be more...

    5E Are components (V,S,M) and schools in spell writeups really necessary for spells anymore?

    Generally what I'm thinking of, though I'd need to consider the proposed Psion class into it all. Many would say the Psion would use no components: even though if using inspiration like comicbook superpowers or mysticism like yoga there's some physical actions involved even if it's touching ones...

    5E Are components (V,S,M) and schools in spell writeups really necessary for spells anymore?

    A player is going to argue they're casting the spell by whispering the verbal component. But it does go back to my idea that those components shouldn't be in the spell themselves, but rather the classes themselves.

    5E 3 Classic Settings Coming To 5E?

    While 100 pages was a generous prediction on how many pages all the player material for races and classes would be in a Dark Sun book, I think it's closer to 60 pages needed, even if that included a full Psion class writeup. The Psion if it's in such a book is going to be using spells just like...

    5E Are components (V,S,M) and schools in spell writeups really necessary for spells anymore?

    Thinking on the design of spells and their writeup entries and the latest complaints about "psionic magic", I don't think there's any relevance to components and school anymore compared to spell levels, range, casting time, duration and so on. Unless the material component is costly, most are...

    5E 3 Classic Settings Coming To 5E?

    No it doesn't they could fit all the different changes to classes and races for Dark Sun within 100 pages. I doubt the 2e boxed set actually exceeded 100 pages when referring to class and race changes.

    5E 3 Classic Settings Coming To 5E?

    The recent Unearthed Arcana does mention Azalin along with Strahd when describing the Undead Patron Warlock, so there's a clue they might revisit Ravenloft and bring up Darkon at least.

    5E 3 Classic Settings Coming To 5E?

    Spelljammer had it's own distinct campaign setting and metaplot, much like how Planescape had it's own distinct setting and plot materials. Sure the big thing about Spelljammer was about travelling around space in magical ships. But it had it's own (proto) factions, the Rock of Bral as a...

    They essentially said Planetouched without saying Planetouched as they grouped Tieflings, Aasimar and Genasi together.
