    @sebastianwillows why sub class a class with subclasses. I'm currently an oder of the lycan blood hunter fir example l. Its more likely to be a class specific to Exandria and not a phb class other wise its offical

    I wonder if Matt would ever write a novel in his world? Might not be his “type” of writing but he has written a world that has a lot of lore, maps and art. There are comics and now a TV show in the works. I just think that’d be super cool for him to do a novel as well! I know novels take a long time and he has so much on his plate already. It could even be a bunch of short stories that he puts together, I don’t know. I’d buy it :D

    Honestly Matt is just a creative and precious treasure and must be protected at all costs, im so thrilled for him to have a dream come true after the wonderful gifts hes given us fans and the endless love, encouragement and positivity he has poured into the community. Of course the cast and crew deserve so much love as well but Matt is the priceless gem at the centre.

    Building backstory through rolling... you have my attention. Some of the best character building experiences I've had are through the traveller rpg and the cyberpunk system. Very interested in this book

    I mean, strictly speaking, they kinda pulled the MtG multiverse in very recently, but I don't know if the Guildmaster's Guide was meant to cement it as a part of the D&D official multiverse. In any case, I'm glad to see Matt being given such an awesome opportunity, and it's amazing of him to include the fan artists in the project like that. I'm not a very big fan of the show (it's fine, I just don't love it) and am not terribly excited for the book. I'll probably allow any player that asks me (the DM) to use the new content, but I'm not gonna get the book. Would have probably been more interested if I'd been told that the Blood Hunter and Matt's other previous homebrew were going to be pulled in to become official stuff. Oh well.

    Matt is so humble. He's has brought so much imagination to story telling that I don't think he's really aware of it's effects. I hope he's happy and healthy and keeps giving us that sweet imagination juice.

I'm sure this must've been one of Matt's dreams since childhood. So happy to see him get the corporate approved recognition he so much deserves!! Can't wait to get my hands on this book. Congratulations!
