Yeah. A Birthright campaign setting book would be a great way for WotC to introduce both mass combat rules (which they haven't revisited since that early UA, right?) and rules for building and running a kingdom.It was a setting designed for mass combat rules.
I could see Hasbro being interested in WotC producing a new mass combat boardgame D&D spin-off.
I know almost nothing about Birthright, but reading the preview, Cerilian elves remind me of the ones from Skyrim.
There is very little I would like more than for this to be true, but isn’t this just a release of earlier editions pdfs like a lot of DriveThruRpg.
Definitely, with a bit a superhero - everyone has their own power vibe combined with a relatively gritty Witcher / Game of thrones style setting (though it was released before Game of Thrones). An strangely satisfying combination.Had a Highlander vibe to it.
Currently watching the Highlander TV. There can be only one/blooded scions similar concept.
We know. But this is just uploaded and free. Like I said, the purpose of spending ressources on prepping this and then offering it for free is not clear to me, if it's not in preparation fo doing something with Birthright.That's a 2E product. There are plenty of earlier edition WotC products for otherwise barred settings available on DMsGuild (pretty much all the older edition Dragonlance stuff is on there, for example).
Birthright never really caught on. I liked reading it in 1999, never played it.
I remember reading the original boxed set around that time too. Because I was reading a lot of different campaign settings back then it might have been a case of information overload/burnout; I didn't get into it. OTOH, it was a very unique setting that from what I recall had a lot of unique rules specific to the setting. I could see a good amount of extra effort above and beyond what a DM normally does to run a campaign. I put it on the bookshelf where it sat until I sold it.
I honestly believe why we don't see a lot of settings for 5E is because anything other than FR, Eberron, and Ravenloft have alot of setting specific rules. They'd need translation and take up a large portion of a campaign guide. Of course this could change if they revise their product/release template, i.e. I could see Darksun requiring 2 or 3 books to update.
Darksuns easy to put in one book.
Original boxed set the books are small and large letters. Smaller font 300 page book not a problem.
Same here.Birthright never really caught on. I liked reading it in 1999, never played it.
