WotC spoke to the site Dicebreaker about D&D race and alignment, and their plans for the future.
- On of the motivations of the changes [character customization] in Tasha's Cauldron was to decouple race from class.
- The 'tightrope' between honouring legacy and freedom of character choice has not been effectively walked.
- Alignment is turning into a roleplaying tool, and will not be used to describe entire cultures.
- This work will take several years to fully implement.
