D&D 5E Monte Cook Games Announces "Path of the Planebreaker" for 5E

Monte Cook Games has announced a new 5E supplement book: Path of the Planebreaker! It describes new planes, creatures, races, subclasses, feats, and spells for D&D 5th Edition.

Monte Cook is no stranger to D&D plane-based material. He not only produced Beyond Countless Doorways for D&D 3E, but also wrote numerous Planescape supplements for TSR.

Path of the Planebreaker hits Kickstarter in October.

Path of the Planebreaker is a sourcebook that brings the wonders, terrors, mysteries, and treasures of new, alternate worlds—plus the inexplicable Planebreaker, an ever-travelling moon—to 5th edition players and GMs. It includes:

Dozens of brand-new planes to explore and adventure in
A bestiary of planar creatures
Playable planar species for PCs
New planar class options for players including new subclasses
Exciting new feats and spells to help you explore these new planes
This gorgeously illustrated 192-page hardcover sourcebook gives you everything you need to add whole new dimensions to your 5e game.

Path of the Planebreaker is by legendary RPG designers Bruce R. Cordell, Sean K Reynolds, and Monte Cook. All three are well known for their work on D&D—across four editions—as well as titles such as Planescape, Arcana Evolved, Pathfinder, HeroClix, Return to the Temple of Elemental Evil, Ptolus, Numenera, the Cypher System, Invisible Sun, and so much more.

Don’t miss the Kickstarter this October—sign up to find out as soon as the Kickstarter launches! We’ll let you know when the project is live so you can download a free preview of Path of the Planebreaker.

Check nerdarchy. He goes into a little bit of detail about this amazon listing:
Oh that. Yes, we have a long thread on that.

Ted from Nerd Immersion has done some legwork there and allegedly this is a rules expansion box set but in a later video he also covered some fizban previews (metallic dragonborn, drakewarden ranger and what seems to be a trimmed down version of adult moonstone dragon) that haven't been shown before, unless you've added them to the previous fizban thread.

There are already threads here discussing the metallic dragonborn, drakewarden, and moonstone dragon too.

Threads already here. Some of them didn't make the front page. Also the "rules expansion" thing was already a thread, except for the naming, that's new. It's in the thread now however. That's cool. I gotta learn not to search JUST for the isbn.

Fair enough, i don't tend to go looking for posts in the community section and was confused by fizban content not hitting front page the way previous previews did. Same for the amazon listing. Me viewing the website from a mobile device might dictate what's immediately visible mind you.

Here’s where I enjoy Enworld and Russ’ for at for their kickstarters…ie as soon as the Kickstarter is over, you get the pdf almost immediately. I’m betting this is a October 2022 delivery date as a guess.
IME, Monte Cook Games Kickstarters have a high reward and quality value with their products, so I have rarely, if ever, been disappointed. I think that their various successes with Kickstarter have also been something of an industry leader and model for others in the hobby.

Interesting, this might be the first Monte Cook product I purchase.
As in Monte Cook the individual or do you mean Monte Cook Games?

Monte Cook (and Mike Mearls) had some fabulous products as well during the d20 System with Malhavoc Press, essentially the precursor of Monte Cook Games.

Couldn't disagree more. Plenty of us older players are more than willing to see new takes on old ideas. I hope it ISN'T planescape.
Time will tell. In my experience "new and improved" usually isn't and proves to be more a case of two steps forward, five steps backward. If it's Planescape, simply update it for the 5th Ed. rules. If it's something else, then make it something else and NAME IT something else so as not to cheaply and parasitically glom on to the good name and reputation of a previous product.

To be clear: Planebreaker is NOT Planescape.

Do you mean: Do we have a more detailed description of the book's contents than what's in the announcement? No, that'll all roll out in the Kickstarter itself later this month. If you have specific questions, though, feel free to post them--I'll answer what I can.

We rarely get super specific on launches (Kickstarter, products, etc.), not because we like to make people's lives hard or keep them guessing, but because every so often you get bit in the butt by a factor outside your control. It will be in the back half of the month. Sorry I can't be more exact!

I'm just glad it wasn't this week!
