Can’t Wait Anymore

Post by Seethyr » Thu May 10, 2018 9:42 pm

I’ve been trying for years to be patient waiting for an update to Planescape. I know there are bits and pieces of lore found here and there but I am pining for a solid 5e update. I mean mechanics, lore - the works. I don’t honestly know the point of this post, I just kind of needed to vent :D

Really though, I’d like to create some demiplanes or regions of known planes myself but I don’t want it all to become obsolete or contradicted when PS finally does make an appearance. Anyone else getting ansy? I’m sure the SJ crowd feels similar.

I don't know if Planescape will be supported officially anytime soon, but Mortenkainen's Tome of Foes will be out in a week, and I have no doubt it'll be valuable for a 5e Planescape game.

That’s true - there should be a lot a good lore in there from what I’ve read. I’m always begging and hoping for lore. But here’s a case I actually want a small amount of crunch too.

Between the player options (new races) and the monster section, I think you'll have more than a "small amount" of crunch. It sounds like the book will be split up in a manner similar to Volo's Guide to Monsters, which was at least 50% crunch.

I doubt WotC has any interest in Planescape. Or Spelljammer. IF they appear again, they'll be integrated into one of their seasonal adventures, not sourcebooks in and of their own right. At best maybe a brief supplement that might give rules on a few new PC races and options.

I'd just make up what you need, and if WotC ever gets around to it, just incorporate it with what you already have. With Spelljammer, its easy, particularly if you create your own sandbox and avoid Realmspace (mostly) and Krynn/Grey space (which, unless WotC gets one heck of a wild hair, will never appear again in published products in anything more than a paragraph).

I think everyone that is after non-FR and non-Ravenloft product is getting antsy!

They are doing a good thing by not releasing en-masse like 2e and 3e suffered from, but this is ridiculous. They could at least open up the other areas for people to work on.
