Oooo, belatedly checking the boards.  This is wonderful news. 

I'm pretty happy with 5e's balance overall, but it would be interesting to see how they tweak it for Midnight given the more prominent role of magic and magic-like abilities in 5e.

And quite a lot of Elves...

Neither of which are a big problem if the weapon-bearing elves are within the bounds of Erethor, or somewhere else outside of public view.

Where were those images originally published, Dain? I didn't see them anywhere on Edge's web or Facebook page (and FB is the only social media platform on which I have an account). Are they from Edge's French Discord channel?

More Midnight is a good thing. I wonder if they will use some of the more gritty optional rules from the DMG and incorporate it into the core Midnight rules?  hmm.

Apologies for the temporary tangent, folks...

Samwise7, would you happen to be the same Samwise who published many articles developing Keoland and the Sheldomar Valley (World of Greyhawk) at www.canonfire.com?

So far I much prefer the human sketches to the elves and the one dwarf we've seen.

I can't believe I missed this news for so long. Very exciting to see renewed interest and new material for such a great setting. I can thrown my 10% done attempts at a Midnight 5e conversion in the garbage now.

Great to see so many familiar old names and faces avatars!

Nice to see you back here,

We got some more sketches as teasers but nothing huge so far
I wish they’d show us their version of Eredane, or the night kings...

I was happy to see in a recent preview (on Edge's Facebook page) that they're keeping the concept of heroic paths for the 5e version. I look forward to seeing how those turn out.

The human race preview mentioned 'Heroic Path feats', which suggests to me they'll be a bundle of abilities at 1st level rather than drip-fed every level. It remains to be seen whether you automatically get extra Heroic Path feats/abilities at higher levels or have to spend an ASI/Feat slot on them as a balancing mechanism.

I have to say, the only piece of art that hasn't done it for me so far is the orc: https://twitter.com/edge_english/status/1351613323528253443

It's a great pic in and of itself. I like the pointed ears, emphasising fey ancestry, but the fact she's green, gracile and female rather than grey, chunky, bestial and male suggests they might be swinging away from the original depiction of MN orcs towards something more playable by default.

To speak my mind, none of the artworks I’ve seen so far are making me happy. There are nicely done, but bland. No real personality, not gritty enough, not enough dust, blood and despair. This is not Midnight, this is just another 5ed D&D book…
Hope I’ll change my mind when we have the real book in our hands…

I agree that a lot of the artworks are pretty bland and don't really capture the brutal, despairing, and desperate aspects of the setting... Except maybe for the Sarcosan which seems to capture the feel of Midnight.

I particularly dislike the Orc female they show because it displays a very generic fantasy Fighter archetype, when Orc females are supposed to be symbols of power within the orcish clan society.

I think it is perhaps lost in translation that the Midnight setting is one where the Evil God Izrador won the big war and the free lands are enslaved and the world has been being crushed under his servant's rule for 100 years.
