I congratulate the artists for the pictures showed in those covers. There is "glamour", somethint turning on your imagination.

The giants need a good story, something style "Game of Thrones" but with more superpowers.

I had been trying to keep all my books matching, but I've been given the alt covers for Fizban's, Candlekeep, and the Golden Vault already, and I just love, love, love that art DiTerlizzi shared online (see my post above). If that's what features on the alt cover set (or similar) then I will not be able to resist.
The dimensions of that art suggest it's a screen to me. I would assume the alternate slipcase will have a similar vibe, though.


With Vecna coming next year along with 5.5e, that description of the Fortune's Wheel adventure involving a "a plot to undermine the rules of reality" has eeries undertones of Die Vecna Die! released as meta-plot transition from AD&D to 3e.

And everybody knows how much Planescape fans loved Die Vecna Die! which wasn't contentious at all. 😏

Original Setting
64 pages on the planes
96 pages on the Sigil and the Outlands
30ish pages for players.

Total: 180ish pages of setting and covered all of the planes

New Boxed Set
96 pages on Sigil and the Outlans

Total: Around half the setting material of the original boxed set, not more.

I would have liked to see a 200-250ish page setting book that gave us the entire setting. Planescape is one of my favorite settings. The Sword Coast Adventure Guide has shown us that once WotC has released a sliver of a setting, they don't finish it up.

Edit: I missed that you were talking about the adventure adding more. It will probably add a bit, but still fall way short of the original amount of setting material.

Agree 110%, its a mix of too short page count with the adventure eating a huge amount of space.

Note WotC stop putting adventures into setting products, its coming at major expense of the setting. Even 4e knew not to do this.
