This year I am going to post my remix of 5e lore. Right now, this may not make much sense, here is what remix means specifically (in no particular order):
- Two types of deities, Gods and Titans
- No Alignment (including spells)
- Feat Requirements
- Optional Icons similar to the Archmage Engine. (Example: The Six-Armed Man)
- Dragons organized by House instead of Chromatic/Gemstone/Metallic distinctions
- Major Changes in Elemental and "Outer" Planes
- As much of a bestiary as I can finish in a month
- Travel in space, the Astral Sea, the Ethereal Plane, and anywhere else you want to go.
- A different name for D&D Golems, automatons, and many other creatures with English names in parenthesis.
- Using Ancestries, Bloodlines (maybe) and Cultures instead of race.
- Magic weapons, Unique Magic Items, and spells.
A note about naming. I took a few Old English classes in college and still have my textbooks. Using a mix of English, Old English, Welsh books, Irish books, Frisian, and some things I've done with vulgarlang.com, I want to see how different it feels when there is a consistent, but different naming system for creatures.
I've modified tools to more easily make magic items and creatures on my computer locally. I still won't have much art, but I'll have content written. I've actually written about 25% of this.
Another idea that I've had for some time is the equivalent of stock art for writers. In other words, I make adventures, creatures, magic items, etc. with only descriptions, text, and statblocks. All of this stuff will be OGL, so folks can go crazy with it.
Tomorrow will start with Astral Sea, the Ethereal Mists, and the Elemental Planes.
