A quote about the Vecna campaign:

"The heroes begin in the Forgotten Realms and travel to Planescape, Spelljammer, Eberron, Ravenloft, Dragonlance, and Greyhawk as they race to save existence from obliteration by the notorious lich Vecna who is weaving a ritual to eliminate good, obliterate the gods, and subjugate all worlds."
I admit, the more I hear about this, the less interested I am. I also admit I might not have the same interests as others.

Sounds rude.

IF the DMG is NOV 12 and not SEP 17, as I suspect, then these dates line up with what I've been expecting since WotC first mentioned that "the Anniversary will continue into 2025". The ONLY detail that differs is I thought that the DMG and the MM would be the other way around.
Admittedly, you called it.

The new MM is probably the least vital, considering that the older Monsters work juat fine.

I admit, the more I hear about this, the less interested I am. I also admit I might not have the same interests as others.
The two demographics it seems to be pitching towards are "Wants a high level campaign that goes to 20th" and "Wants a lore heavy campaign that draws deep on D&D's history". How big those combined demographics will be, and how happy they'll be with the actual book, remains to be seen. But they've certainly voiced their desires for something like this.

Interesting... a journey through the multiverse.

If nothing else, the Vecna adventure sounds like an upper tier campaign. Well, given that we really won't have all the revised books until 2025, I should stop procrastinating on another 5e campaign I've been thinking of running.
