    General Ideas for other Orcish religions/cultures that are alternatives to the Gruumshite religion

    With the ideas behind that there is more nuance to Orcs, I'm going to establish that the Gruumshite religion (the pantheon of Gruumsh) is as evil and patriarchal as it's been previously described as. However other Orchish religions do exist and they tend to lean more towards neutral and good...

    General Naming the Barbarian? [added battlerager]

    It probably should be Berserker, even if that comes from the old Norse word for "Bear Shirt", it fits what the class does better. And while rare for the class concept, "Berserker" would be better fit a warrior filled with rage from an Urban environment with the Noble background than "Barbarian"...

    5E Revisiting future product predictions (2021 and beyond)

    If there's a Magic the Gathering setting it's usually the based on the set that's out at the same time as when the book will be released. So I'm guessing it would be Zendikar.

    5E 3 Classic Settings Coming To 5E?

    Back on the subject of Spelljammer, in it's 2e rules there were 2 different damage tracks/scales. One being the normal HP for personal combat between characters, and the other being the damage track for ships with Hull Points as the HP. While 5e does have vehicle rules, it doesn't currently have...

    Some of them they could definitely hand-wave as having long lifespans, especially if they're Planetouched. For others they could have just found ways of extending their lives, like Harys Hatchis who is a Human but also is a Wizard.

    For Planescape I think they should just advance the timeline so the factions are back in some form (remove the limit of 15 only). It's metaplot was mainly about Rowan Darkwood as the primary point, and the thing with Orcus/Tenebrous being only a 2-part adventure path that was mostly in isolation...

    Scro could just be name for a political faction of Orcs "No longer will we hide in fear of what lurks in the stars, for we are the champions of those oppressed by the rampant colonialism of the Elven Imperial Navy, we no longer call ourselves Orcs! For we are Scro!"

    I'm thinking with the subject of Spelljammer by itself as it's own campaign setting that can be completely independent Torilspace, Greyspace and Krynnspace, what would need to be revised? The idea of the Rock of Bral and it's location (it used to be insert in your sphere of choice among those...

    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...

    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.

    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.
