Fix the buggy VTT and allow 3rd party content on DnD Beyond?
"7e" is the placeholder name for what comes after 2024 D&D. It's the theoretical future edition of D&D where we can discuss what we'd like down the road that we know isn't going to happen in 2024.Uh.... what happened to 6E? Aren't we still waiting on that one???
And just like when we were supposed to call it D&D Next and then just D&D, we're just going to taunt and bully them until they stop trying to make D&Done happen."STOP CALLING IT A NEW EDITION!"

There are 3PP that provide these for 5e. IIRC, MCDM is including them in there "Flee Mortals" monster manual as well.Since we know the next iteration of D&D is going to be a slight update from the 2014 game, the big issues that we might have with the game are not going to be addressed.
I’m wondering what “big” changes you'd like to see in the game if/when they decide to make significant revisions.
You already get this with LevelUp. Other 3PP 5e products. have added back too.
- Bloodied condition
The could do something similar with HD (we do in our houserules). Not sure if any 3PP has done this.
- 4e-style healing surges
I'm not into niche protection so I haven't really noticed if someone has tackled this (I don't personally see it as an issue).
- Niche protection for classes
3PP has done this. There is a great free website that as 4e style monster builder for 5e. Also, "Flee Mortals" will include monster roles IIRC.
- Monsters that have defined roles (leader, soldier, striker, etc.)
That is not something I would want to see changed (only it is to make them more squishy). Default should be squishy. Start at level 3, which is the official response I believe, or some other trivial fix if it is any issue for you.
- More survivable low-level characters
3PP has you covered here as well.
- Meaningful positioning/flanking
These aren't bad ideas, but why wait for WotC when you can get what you want now?Basically, my list is wanting to add more 4e design elements into the game.
What would you like to see in a new edition?
yup... give everyone the warlock treatment (I outlined it in other threads)but start with 3 HD only getting 1 each odd level, then get 1 2 or 3 at even levels... go back to 2 stats better of each to a save (str/con dex/in wis/cha) and half prof to ones you don't have prof in...4e with some 5e innovation worked in and MUCH better go math (still front load but way less) sounds like a perfect edition to me
Yes more reason to have Int is a great ideaJust add the Scholar and Noble classes already.
If trends repeat...Yes more reason to have Int is a great idea
Well let's see. 5e came out in 2014 and will last until 2024 so 10 years. Then 5.5e will come out. So if it lasts the same amount of time, it will be 2034 when 6e comes out. Then 6e gets 10 years to 2044, and 6.5e to 2054, so we're talking 2054. I will be 85 by then. So if I am still alive, I have no idea what I'd want at that point.
I disagree. For me 5E's shelf life is starting to expire and considering we probably won't see 6E for quite some time, if they don't make significant changes by then I doubt I'd buy into it, as most people probably won't. I have a feeling the changes in 1D&D will be more significant than people think.I don’t foresee D&D making another major change like 2e to 3e, 3e to 4e, or 4e to 5e.
Can we get them as new classes, too?An Anthropogenist, Economist, Historican, and Psychologist icluded in the game design staff.
