Well. Modrons. Coincidentially, I asked about them a few weeks ago...
Do you have a non-twitter link to that video? Firefox refuses to acknowledge it's very existence. :shock:

And Windows 10 refuses to acknowledge Firefox's existence. It's a bad scene all around.

The video is nothing special, just animated drawn modrons carrying pikes, it didn't work with Chrome but played fine with Opera.

Our group today guessed that it is going to be a core Spelljammer booklet, with the Triad -- the three spheres all connected by a single current, being the Realms, Greyhawk, and Krynn -- as secondary sections in the booklet.

The booklet gives you all the basics you need to run Spelljammer for 5E, and then opens up Spelljammer, Greyhawk, and Dragonlance on DM's Guild just as the Realms is already opened... with a proviso that the other major campaign settings are NOT included in "Spelljammer" as "Open", though all the minor ones included in the various Spelljammer products are opened for DMG...

I'll be surprised if they do anything with Dragonlance at this point.

My guess - and this based on nothing in particular other than wishful thinking and subtle hints in recent discussions and releases: A unified Planescape/Spelljammer setting. Maybe some commonalities like unified rules for spelljamming/planejamming. Have your nautiloid travel the Astral Plane in addition to wildspace...

That's okay, I like them enough for both of us. Though admittedly I adjust a few details of their fluff which I don't care for.

LOL!

I think its mostly because I was furious that so many pages had been spent on these «silly» creatures in the MM2 (1983). I felt my hard earned money delivering newspaper was wasted. Would have preferred singular creatures rather than a family of creature that look like polyhedral dice... :facepalm:

That's a valid reason for holding a grudge, to be sure. But I don't find them all that silly, and the new version looks to be moving them more in the direction of "terrifying", as I have always considered them to be.

I always had a problem figuring out the "personality" and motivations of Modrons, so I ignored their existence for years. Recently, when I see a Modron now, my mind's eye sees them as Minions, ala "Despicable Me". There's the personalities, there's the motivation! :lol:

They may have some "spoilers" on Friday.Let's see what they will show.

They made too much cover,although their products are not complete settings.If the final result is not exciting,I will hate them very much. :(

I find them to be very distinct. One particular wrinkle I like to use is the idea that a Modron can only speak in words of as many syllables as their rank. Thusly, a Monodrone can only use short words, a Duodrone can use two-parters, and so forth. To illustrate:

Monodrone: "I am Sept Four One! Please come this way!"

Duodrone: "Hello, I am Modron Number Seven Forty One! Follow me, and I will show you to your rooms!"

Tridrone: "Greetings, gentlemen! My Modronic Numeral is Seven Hundred and Forty One, I will be your companion during your journey here on Mechanus. Permit me to show you to your appointed suites, right away!"

Quadrone: "Salutations, gentlebeings! My Numeric Designation is Quadromodron Seven Hundred Forty One, I shall accompany you throughout your visitation upon the plane of Mechanus. With your kind permission, I shall now commence to escort you to the location of your temporary quarters, posthaste."

And so forth. I would ideally give them a better language, so that more of the words would be precisely calibrated to the desired number of syllables (replacing Tridone's "show you to" with a single word that is grammatically constructed as the "intransitive future tense of the countable verb 'show' " or some such - I don't actually know grammar, so that might be a nonsense phrase, but hopefully you can tell what I was going for).

I'm not entirely sure what pdf they are talking about here.. earlier post mention Modrons, but for that I am only aware of an 18 page pdf from the 3.5e days. http://archive.wizards.com/default.asp? ... /20010921a

There is nothing as of yet. There will be something the 23rd, but we don't know what it will be. Some people believe it will be a pdf.

They were teasing some stuff from Eberron in the latest spoilers...
