D&D (2024) I thought the new Sorcerer art Iconic was actually the Bard's in previous art.


I thought the new Sorcerer art Iconic was actually the Bard's in previous art we've seem her in.

Also is she a Tiefling, Drow Elf or Aasimar?

Do any of these class or subclass iconics get names?

What Sorcerer subclass do you think she is?

Pretty sure she is a Moon Elf with weird hair who is casting a spell. Her eye glow isn't the solid light of the Aasimar, and thiae aren't horns.

No names yet, to my knowledge. The repeating party of characters in the 2014 PHB never got an ID that I can recall.

If you really zoom in on Aasimar Wizard, her eyes do you pupils a circle in them indicating where she is looking, so it's not completely solid.

So, it seems we have 3 major groups of Iconic characters thst we have seen PHB art for:

  • The named Spellcasywrs, those who would be Planeswalkers in MtG terms, like Tasha, Bigby or Mordenkainen. These all seem important to WptC for brand identity moving forward.
  • Fiction characters, such as Raistlin, Driz'zt, the action figure characters, the 80's cartoon characters, that new group from thst one novel with the Otyugh, etc. These are also important for the D&D brand.
  • The Class Iconics, which seem to repeat in some art throughout the book. Not clear if they have significant plans for these characters,though I sense some implicit storyline in the art pieces we have seen, and I think that could be cool.

Where I think these Class Iconics work better than the 3E approach is, it feels like here are more than 1e characters in this book. Sure, these 12 are interesting and represe twice, but exh Class has 5 members shown, minimum, and there are all those historical D&D characters to add species and variety.

Still, this doesn't look like an Aasimar, and it makes sense for the two Specues to double up be Elves and Humans...the two moat popular choices, bar none.

If she's an Elf I think its more likely Drow because they made a big deal about how not all Drow are Black, some are Grey, Blue, and Purple and because it's the Drow Pantheon that has a God of Sorcerers, especially wild Sorcerers.
 

Yes, that ia the Splash page image introducing the Sorcerer aub-Chapter. Each of the 12 Classes gets an Iconic representation.

Do we have a space where all the PHB is gathered together so we can analysis it? As I understand it, the iconics, especially class Iconics, are in art together outside if their respective splash pages?
