Iâ€™ve been pondering the significance of Jeremy Crawford joining Larian for the Panel from Hell this week. Since heâ€™s the principal 5E rules designer at Wizards, why do you think heâ€™s been invited for this panel? It could be they are wheeling him out to explain why 5E rules donâ€™t need to be translated to a video game faithfully? Or perhaps theyâ€™re going the other way and leaning more into 5E so heâ€™s there to explain how theyâ€™ve worked hard in 5E on the action economy and balance and Larian are moving to emulate that?
I'm a pessimist, so you can probably guess what I think. An attempt to give this current mess validity.
