OK, so from what I see, the two gifts are Aasimar and Tiefling. This definitely paves the way for me to create Genasi/Jann as additional gifts, as well as other types of Planetouched.

And so, here's my take on the other types of Planetouched (calling @TheHand and @Steampunkette, since I'm not posting them in my usual thread). As always, critiques are greatly desired!

I read through them and they seem pretty fantastic to me! I didn't see anything I'd change.

I could see the 'official' analogs of all of the heritages but one, I wasn't quite sure who the Bliss mirrored, if anyone. This is purely academic curiosity and not a criticism!

I'm eager to see what you have planned next!

They were mostly inspired by the more chaotic celestials like eladrin (the original ones from Planescape, not the super-fey elves they are nowadays) and lillendi. Since none of those guys are in 5e (and likely won't, in the case of the eladrin), it's a bit harder to come up with a legit parallel. I couldn't think of a better name for them, but will gladly take suggestions!

Oh yes of course! The "asura" would probably fit in there as well.

I'm fine with the Bliss, but if you're looking for a couple of other ideas, but not sure if these really fit:

-Moontouched (inspired by the lillendi being associated with the gate of the moon)
-Mecurials
-Sidereals

I kind of like Mercurials. It reminds me of the Mercurians from the In Nomine RPG. But I also like Moontouched quite a but. It works with the lillendi and eladrin inspiration and the faerie fire I can just alter the flavor text a bit: unlike the blazing sunlight of the solars and devas that make up the aasimar's bloodline, the more gentle, creative, and healing light of the moon is part of these angels.

(I may end up making a Lunar angel, just to go with this.)
 

looks good intresting changes from 5e
im assuming these are now locked or are those pages examples of what there looking at

only thing id like to see change (which i know is unlikely) is what WotC seem to be doing now and allowing you to use spell slots for additional racial spell casting and to choose your spellcasting ability
