Planescape 5e Planescape- What would you like to see in the upcoming setting?

To follow up on my previous post, the chapter on Sharn in the 5e Eberron book was 32 pages long, and the description of Waterdeep in W: DH was 27 pages, which seem to be the best comparisons for large cities in a 5e product.

Also, if the Factions are in, it would be reasonable to assume that they will get at least one page each.

And, beyond all that, there could be some overlap with the adventure book. If the adventure mainly takes place in Sigil (which seems logical), that means that locations from the adventure won't need be to covered in the setting book. This would be the case for other locations as well, such as portal towns...

And finally, I assume they will have a poster map, which better be double-sided, with Sigil on one side, and the Outer Planes on the other!
So, Light Of Xiraxis (sp?) has 10 chapters, going from page 8-64 (some intro material up front), for about 5-6 pages per episode.

That means that this Planescape Adventure could have as many as 18 chapters...enough to get a slice of each Plane.

Pfft, the Inner Planes are more interesting than the Outer Planes, and I'll fight anyone who says otherwise! :p

(Seriously though, I wonder if we'll even HAVE Inner Planes in this version of Planescape, now that the Elemental Chaos seems to be a thing)

Seems we'll be getting Inner Plane related Feats...though thst might be related to Bigby's instead, for all I know.

Some actual crunchy rules. Like, bare minimum on a lvl of the Van Richtens Guide to Ravenloft. Spelljammer was deeply disappointing.
I didn't think spelljammer was deeply disappointing, but I did feel like it needed just a little bit more. It's the same kind of feeling I had ordering a burger at Wahlburgers, I wasn't disappointed but I felt like the burger was just a little too small for the price.

If Spelljammer had had this page count, it would have been a lot better received. 32 pages for the setting book would have given plenty of room for sample and "build your own" systems, deeper rules on ship combat, and more on the Rock of Bral. 32 pages for the adventure would have significantly expanded its level range - even by just including the level 1 - 5 adventure released for free on D&D Beyond.

Whelp, we got confirmation ok the details: it solves the main issue from Spelljammer, which is page count:
That's nice, but 64 page bestiary is still not much. At least unlike Spelljammer's that was half Dark Sun this one can focus on the Planescape monsters. Hopefully.

(presumably lots of celestials if the 2024 playtest is anything to go by.)
Humm was not aware that the playtest revealed new creatures. You got any details?

Why would they want to bring back that nonsense from 4E? Next you'll be telling me they will merge Yugoloths with the Tanar'ri...

They did bring that nonsense from 4e, the inner planes still exist, but they all "meet in the middle" to create the elemental chaos, which is cool.
Ah OK that is different. In 4E I think they just merged the Abyss with Limbo and the Elemental Planes and a lot of interesting stuff was lost. This being just a merging point I can live with.
Where is all this news coming from btw? I am checking the D&DLeaks reddit and they barely posted anything in weeks.
