D&D (2024) If WOTC announces that OneDnd will be called 6th edition and will be backwards compatible with fifth edition adventures and supplements What changes?

I would respect them less, because they were advertising a slight revision as something totally new...

... no. Right now, it is totally unclear, how many changes there will be in the final release. They are already taking some of the changes back.

All in all, it does not matter to me. There are arguments for both approaches. 1e - > 2e or 3.0 -> 3.5 are both bigger jumps than what we see here. So the whole discussion is pointless.

As long as they retain interoperability between old stuff and revised stuff, the exact way they label it is immaterial to me.

I thought someone disproved this by showing where it says 5e or 5th edition on the books last year...

Not that I know of. I only checked a couple of my books, including the fine print at the front. But in the books I checked no 5E label.

I know a lot of the devs will call it 5E in interviews, but it's nothing official.

If tomorrow WOTC came out with an announcement that said "One DND will be officially called Sixth Edition Dungeons and Dragons and that the rules will be backwards compatible with fifth edition adventures and supplements."


What changes?

They'd lose sales. Other than that, very little.

About the playtest?
About the products you would buy?
The games and campaigns you would run?
None of the above, I think.

I'm gonna post the same thing I post every time we talk about this: They are going to call it "50th Anniversary Dungeons & Dragons" and we can call it whatever we like.

It's actually 16th edition, after all. everything else is just marketing.

What's in a name? That which we call garbage by any other name would smell. ~ Shakespeare's maid.
