Spring's D&D Release Will Be Ship-Themed

So they talked about it a little bit on today's Fireside Chat. They mentioned that the full reveal are coming at a later date, but it will be a ship based product. It's almost done, but cover and title are not yet finalized.

Not much else was mentioned except some joke titles!
Not too surprising, given the UA, the upcoming seafaring comic book, the ship mini set, etc.

For someone named "Vecna," you sure spill a lot of secrets... ;-)

Thanks for the heads up, BTW!

Interesting, that suggests they have some stuff up in the air still, in terms of whether a fourth book makes it this year.
They did mention they have a team of 25 people. So a fourth book could feasibly slip out of the calendar year depending on how the work goes on it.

My pet hypothesis is that they are looking to do a full hardcover Eberron book, and that might depend on how testing goes for the final Artificer...

Indeed, they're going to take a deeper plunge in Eberron this year and the hardcover is pretty much a given. I believe it was the last Happy Fun Hour, where Mearls had mentioned that the next iteration of the Artificer is coming "Soon. Not this month, but soon." Could very well be a January drop!

I'm looking forward to seeing any of the smaller things they might do, like possibly more campaign setting pdfs!

They have been working on the Artificer for two years at this point. If the next iteration meets public approval, it'll be go time.

I see Dark Sun going a similar way in the next year or so.

I really hope so, I need me some Dark Sun!

Also, would not be surprised if the POD for Wayfinder's Guide is ready by its one year anniversary if the Artificer is good to go.

That about sums up everything that was talked about. However, they missed something important: one of the mock-ups was called "Boats and :):):):):)" which is fantastic!
I kind of hope they keep "Everything you need to float your boat for the world's greatest roleplaying game."

I am getting a strong "Volo's with more boats" vibe here, which I dig.
 






Did they give any indication if this is a late Winter or late Spring sort of release?

It strikes me that a Volo/Mordy-style book with nautical monster lore and additional rules for sea and ship related stuff would be awesome.
That's what I'm leaning towards myself - a book with rules for ships and underwater adventuring, a section on water-based PC races (possibly reprinting sea elves and tritons, but adding new options like merfolk and locathah), and a bestiary focusing on aquatic creatures and nautical NPCs. Possibly a short adventure as well...
