I clicked on Book of Many Things just to have marked in on the poll as there was no "None of the Above" option; should this be a new thread?
  • Keys from the Golden Vault should be up my street as it's heist-themed. But when Dragon Heist had no dragons and no heist and I already have enough adventures and write my own it's not a trivial sell. It comes out in under a month and has limited buzz - and is coming out here in the UK a month late so by the time I can get it it will be old news (which is annoying)
  • Glory of the Giants - don't care.
  • Book of Many Things - might be in line with Xanathar's/Tasha's in which case I'm interested. But the Deck is one of the more campaign breaking artifacts out there. With luck it will be all the most interesting stuff that some will dislike so they'd never put in a core book but think it should be some, produced just before the next edition
  • Phandelver Campaign - it's a setting and offering me little that I've seen and Phandelver's never grabbed me.
  • Planescape - three 64 page books in a post-Faction War setting? In the Spelljammer format after that disappointment? I'd rather make Planescape up out of whole cloth. And Planescape wants something beefy; it's an intricate setting.
So that's two maybes at best. WotC could wow me, but I've ducked most of their adventures anyway.
There was quite definitely a dragon in Dragon Heist. But your other comments about it are valid.

And who's to say that Planescape's books will only be 64 pages each? Given that the big complaint about Spelljammer was that the books needed to be longer, and given that they likely have a lot of stuff they want to squeeze into the set, there's every chance that we'll get bigger books in this set.

I'm expressly the target audience - I have bought three copies of every 5e book so far, one physical, one on DND Beyond, and one on Roll20. I normally would purchase all of these books three times. As of now, due to the OGL situation, I have no plans to purchase any new WotC content going forward. If it becomes necessary I will look for second hand physical copies where WotC will receive no proceeds, and will forego the convenience of having them built into the online systems I play through.

So, while interested in all, I can't actually vote for any of them in the current situation. Hence the comment instead of a vote.

I think, at best, we're going to get something comparable to the original Planescape boxed set. While evocative, it was not super-detailed.

I have to imagine there is an army of Planescape fans at least loosely prepping to bring everything else for Planescape up to 5E via the DMs Guild seconds after the 5E Planescape is published, though.

Well only speaking for myself, but I've hardly heard a peep about Golden Vault, so I have no real clue what's going to be in it. I forgot it was even a thing until this poll.
Yeah, that's probably a combo of it coming out so close to the holidays, since they won't be doing promotion between Christmas and New Years, the OGL issue making it a bad time to promo anything and it possibly being a movie tie-in, meaning that the studio likely has strict rules for when to roll out big info dumps.
 





I guess I’m interested in the giants book; I liked Fizban’s and would like a similar book but about giants if it’s as good.

I don’t expect it to be, though, and I’m not likely to use it even if I get it.

I found Fizban's to be incredibly underwhelming (to be fair, I was measuring it against the best-in-class 3E Draconomicon), but the player-facing parts of Bigby's Book Book of Giants looks worth getting on D&D Beyond for me. It's much more robust than what Fizban's offered.

I hadn't heard anything about this yet; is it confirmed Planescape getting a Spelljammer like release (PC book, monsters and adventure) in lieu of a more traditional setting book?

They said it would be 3 books in a slipcase. But what will be in those books, or how many pages they will be, hasn't been revealed yet. Although I would think setting - bestiary - adventure is still a good bet.

None of the above. This has nothing to do with the OGL kerfuffle; I've been really disappointed by everything I've bought in 2022 and none of these are on subjects that interest me sight unseen.

I feel actual dread at the thought of a D&D5 treatment of Planescape.

I’d say None Of The Above, but not necessarily because of the OGL. I’m just not convinced they can do a setting guide without colossally messing it up. I’ve also stopped buying their adventures until I can read some reviews that actually take some time to read the books.

Yes, they said so in the original announcement, although they certainly have time to tweak things before release.

Huh. Must have missed that. Thanks.

Hopefully they tweak the format somewhat from Spelljammer...
