"Race & Heritage System: Not every dwarf was raised among dwarves, so we’ve split those aspects to help refine character concept. During character creation, choose a race, which represents a character’s biology, and a heritage to represent upbringing in a particular group or society. Choose a standard match of race and heritage for a more traditional character or mix ‘n’ match to craft a unique origin!"

What a good idea! :D

Fore those that haven't clicked the link, there is also some info on what the game might look like relative to 5E.

Some Things Stay the Same…​

As announced, Project Black Flag will be compatible with 5E. But there’s more! Kobold plans to revise and sharpen familiar mechanics while offering new, streamlined options for a core tabletop game.

Dice goblins of the world, rejoice! You can keep your hoard as Project Black Flag will use the beloved, time-tested set of Platonic solids, d4 to d20 (and also the d10, which, okay, sure, isn’t a Platonic solid, but everyone loves it so much, no one brings it up.)

And what kind of Kobolds would we be if we didn’t show love to our monsters? You can expect a Project Black Flag core book of 400 monsters, fully illustrated! It will include some of your favorite classic fantasy monsters and all new ones to bedevil players.

…And Some Things Change​

Now let’s talk about ongoing design. The first playtest packet in February contains rules and mechanics that focus on character creation.

  • Talents & Backgrounds: A new talent system helps players customize their characters with potent Magic, Martial, or Technical advantages.
  • Race & Heritage System: Not every dwarf was raised among dwarves, so we’ve split those aspects to help refine character concept. During character creation, choose a race, which represents a character’s biology, and a heritage to represent upbringing in a particular group or society. Choose a standard match of race and heritage for a more traditional character or mix ‘n’ match to craft a unique origin!
We look forward to your feedback in helping us refine these options. We’ll have a new playtest packet each month highlighting new features and options. Do you want to get these packets and help us playtesting? Sign up to join our playtest crew!

Thank you to everyone who continues to support us as we develop Project Black Flag. Raise those flags high!
