D&D 5E New Unearthed Arcana: Heroes of Krynn Revisited

WotC's Jeremy Crawford has announced a new Unearthed Arcana article today with redesigns from the prior Heroes of Krynn UA based on feedback, and in the following video he discusses that feedback and what's in the article:
  • New iteration of Kender based on feedback survey, due to mixed response. This time is a back to basics, aiming to capture 1E AD&D fearlessness, curiosity and taunting skills. Delve into their origins from Gnomes in deep history.
  • Kender are no longer fey creatures who grab objects from the Feywild
  • Tweaked Feats from prior article
  • Tweaked Backgrounds from prior article
  • Brand new rule giving a list of free Feats for ANY Background
  • Free Feat rule for Level 4 for all characters that doesn't take the ASI away, based on a curated list
  • Reveals that in the Adventure, healing magic is already back.

It looks like they've removed the alignment prerequisites from the Initiate/Adept feats, but kept the alignment-based spells for the Divinely Favored feat- so a nice compromise that will annoy everyone.
Thats even more mind boggling. A spell is a spell is a spell, and gods can grant within domains blah blah blah.

A GOOD Black Robe?? Come on Wizards....

Gotta ride that fence and annoy everyone as you say I guess.

The more we can confuse anyone who reads Dragons of Autumn Twilight for the first time after playing with these rules, the better. Right?

A Battle Master that takes the Squire of Solamnia+Knightly Order+reaching level 20 will end up ending with a whopping 14(!) Superiority Die. If you add in Martial Adept and the Superior Technique Fighting style, You'll have 16.

Mother of Mercy my mind is blown, happy, amazed, shocked, absolutely loving every single second of it.

Now to find a DM that would be crazy enough to let me do it!!!
 

Gone! They're just like everyone else, now. As an exercise, replace the word "kender" with "humans": "Kender sometimes amass impressive collections of curiosities. Some might collect mundane knickknacks or relics from magical sites, while others might become professional thieves."
intrestiing... so no "everyone likes them" and no "they randomly take stuff" seems good for those of us that dislike kender but I can't imagine it is better for those that do.
