Goblin Queen (She/Her/Hers)
No, that was the jump action. The issue with Ardlings from what Jeremy said was context. Which I took for a diplomatic way of expressing that people didn’t want them in the PHB more so than that people didn’t want them at all.From the video as far as I remember the issue with Ardlings was that they made the approval numbers but the associated comments were generally "Meh!".
I get the impression that someone on the design team is very attached to the specific combination of animal-features and celestial origin, but there was a significant amount of feedback indicating that said combination doesn’t resonate with some folks, and they would rather try to bring back the Ardling in some later supplement where that specific combination won’t feel out-of-place, rather than decoupling the beastfolk identity from the celestial origin to make it fit in the PHB.
