Class bits are only somewhat compatible unless they haven't structured subclasses the same across the board. Even with what we have now, a current bard has 3 levels assigned to subclasses whereas a onednd bard has 4 levels assigned to subclasses, it means if we have a bard subclass pop up in planescape, it isn't going to easily translate to onednd.
The latest UA explicitly says thst they will nail down the Subclass compatibility rules as they finalize the overall rules. The stated expectation is that all 5E Subclasses can slot into the new Classes with minimal translation (probably a bonus Feat for the Bard, for example).

“It’s probably Matt Mercer’s fault.”
If Phandelver adds significant new content I might consider it.

Curious about the others, although probably not Planescape. I like my D&D relatively low-magic.
 

It was going to be the Giants (as I liked Fizbans) and Planescape (as I liked Spelljammer!)

It will now be nothing, and without a dramatic turn around I'll be pulping the books I do have.

Seems a little extreme, will you be pulping just your 5E books, or anything WotC?
Good luck pulping that Spelljammer box set, the paper on that bad boy was hella thick. Lol.

Its nice, right? I was mostly pleased with it.

As to destroying it, its like this.

If Wizards does not back off of the 1.0 OGL (and especially the 3.5 SRD licensed there by) then I'll hate them till the end of my days, and would not want someone to even fish these books out of a landfill and gift them to someone. I would (and WILL) buy the core books for PF2 and donate them to my library, before I would enable someone to look at, these books.

I will trash this company, online, in person, on any forum I am on, until I wither and die.

I think we've reached drama queen levels of melodrama here. I mean, do whatever makes you feel better, but that's just hilariously over the top.

Goddamn actual idiots.

Well that makes that completely and totally worthless. Oh you're just going to explain the ENTIRE Planescape setting, Sigil, its politics, the Factions, the concept, operation and nature of portals, all the races, subclasses, Feats, and so on, in 64 pages, then waste 64 pages on a Bestiary of obscure-ass beings that hardly anyone cares about (given all the major ones are already in 5E, minus, what, Modrons, who need like, what 12 pages?), and waste another 64 pages on a terrible adventure that only 5% of people who buy the book will ever even run, and 80% of those 5% will only run once ever?

The sheer wasteful stupidity of this kind of design is just mind-boggling. I honestly feel like I'm owed a very detailed explanation lol. Yet another hate-crime against Sigil. I guess I'll add it to the list.
There are some starter info about planes on the DMG and how to travel between them. 64/64/64 can be a good format, but they should be:
1) More info about planes, with adventure seeds
2) Info about Sigil and factions
3) Player Modrons and Monsters

No adventure and maybe some monsters on Beyond (I know, it's not ideal, but I think it's the only thing that can go online unless the page count rises a little).

This could be the first set expecially made for Tier 3 and Tier 4. I hope it will be "capstone" of 5e.

Sure and something like that would be cool. But that's not what they're actually intending to do, and sadly their intentions are likely completely locked in place at this point.

Modron as a playable species would be great.

I would have preferred no adventure with Spelljammer and instead a book of adventure seeds, planets, locations, etc…
But I can understand why they went with an adventure, and I do feel there’s a pretty good chance of that happening again with Planescape, but we’ll see.

When are we supposed to get any info about The Golden Vault book? Its supposed to release in less than a month and I haven't seen what the cover even looks like. I'm new so forgive the ignorance, but is this normal? It seems like last year there would be at least a month of knowing the basics of the content, knowing how the cover art looks, maybe seeing images of a chapter on YouTube, etc. before the release.

It's extremely weird and probably to do with the turmoil at WotC right now. I don't think WotC want it to be associated with the whole OGL fiasco, but the problem is that fiasco may well continue until it's launched.

It's just such a phenomenally bad idea, because the odds of any given person who buys the book running the adventure are fairly low, and the odds of them running it more than once are almost impossibly low, so it's like why waste 1/3rd of the entire pagecount of what is allegedly a setting, on an adventure you'll run once at most? Why not put setting material in a setting lol?

Amazon has Feb 21 as the release date.
So yeah, less than a month and nothing does seem unusual.

None.

I wish they’d leave the old stuff alone, and do a new setting, or something actually “new”.

And please, please for the love of all things, leave Greyhawk alone…

Yeah their marketing folks - heck the whole D&D team - have to be really frustrated by all of this. Trying to talk up new product in the middle of the PR hurricane their bosses have shoved them into is not going to work.

I'm not going to be pulping anything.

But I also won't buy anything new, and I'll play other games. The books I already own can sit on my shelves and I can pull them out for ideas for the next Torg campaign or Swords of the Serpentine one-shot or 13th Age game I decide to run.

It's the same as the TSR books I have. I stopped buying from TSR when I found out what a terrible company they were, but I kept all my books and felt free to use them for other, non-TSR games.

It's fine. The secret behind roleplaying is that you actually don't need any specific company to make anything at all to play once you know how it works. I once ran a game of "D&D" with the contents of a Yahtzee box. I like supporting companies who do good work, but it's not like their stuff is necessary, just nice to have.

100% it is. As I noted when this all kicked off though, I'm from the GW crowd that would melt their armies in outrage. Whats a few books of dubious value? :ROFLMAO:
Good on you for acknowledging it's over the top! If you had acted as though this was a perfectly reasonable reaction that everyone should take I would have been a bit worried. But if going complete scorched earth is the most fun way for you to channel your anger, then go for it.

Heck... I just watched Red Letter Media on YouTube throw like a thousand video cassette copies of a movie called 'Nukie' into a wood chipper, so I can see how utter destruction of non-necessities can be a thrill, LOL. Not to mention them also melting down thousands of Star Wars action figures in a giant vat of acid too a couple years ago.
