Gaming is fun, and fun is for everyone

It's not entirely clear, but it does sound like the Astral Plane is mostly taking the place of Phlogiston. It's repeatedly mentioned on the product page. Wild Space is also mentioned, so at least Astral/Wild Space seem distinct.

If this opens up Spelljammer for Community Content on DMsGuild, this means I can put the word "Spelljammer" back into my Realmspace project for DMsGuild. Woot!
It’ll be interesting to see how they handle this. Especially is the phlogiston and crystal spheres are out for 5E. Will the stop people from mentioning them or let it slide?

I'm not a huge fan of including the Astral Plane in this, but I can pull out what I don't like without an issue. I am the excite!
 



Seems odd that the Rock of Bral is in the Astral Sea now and not Wildspace. Originally iirc it was supposed to be a travelling asteroid but later books I believe the Tethyr book officially placed it in the Tears of Selune in Realmspace. Ugh change for the sake of change makes me apprehensive.

It might be possible to have one's cake and eat it too. I'm pretty sure I can incorporate both the apparent Astral Sea change together with the crystal spheres + phlogiston, making it compatible (more or less) with both the 5e book and the previous edition books simultaneously. I've been doing something similar with Nine Hells lore in an Asmodeus pamphlet I'm currently writing. The 4e books tried to describe the Nine Hells as planetary layers (underground after Avernus) rather than planar layers, which made it an interesting challenge to combine it with the previous editions' outdoor realm descriptions.
