Let me guess. The New World Modules will be out in 2 years...?

This fictional campaign setting the characters are playing... A part of me wants to think the elaborate, colour-coded module system demonstrated here is a fairly unique way of both world-building and helping inexperienced GMs keep track of story progression, level appropriate combat encounters and so forth.

Another part of me worries that this makes it a little too easy for bad GMs to railroad their campaigns. "Oh, you want to take a different route now? Sorry, guys, the magnetic fields have spoken. I don't care if you can practically see the island next to this one, you can't go there since that module isn't part of this route. I don't make the rules."

And still another part of me thinks this is just another blatant cash grab by the company to sell more modules and they should feel bad about it. Ah well, at least we now see that some of the modules contain more than one island, so that's something. And thankfully, an experienced GM can always just ignore modules and do their own thing.

Yeah, I get what you are saying.

I don't recall ever having purchased a module before, but that's because they didn't make a lot of them for the RPG's I played the most. I think I prefer when any rule revisions/mechanics are ones that I understand having not shown up sooner. Especially when it is something I could have derived from the underlying rules... if I wanted to spend the time crafting, testing, and revising them myself. When both the rules and the story show professional polish.

I imagine it’s like the Ravnica book.

It helps build a setting sure but there’s nothing stopping you from homebrewing a setting.

Frankly I’d say it’s a good thing and this system has a lot of support and new content on a regular bases.

None of which is strictly needed to run a game.

So, Raftel is getting a retcon huh. I wonder why they would do this in the campaign setting.

To be fair, "Raftel" sounds far more awesome than "Laugh Tale".

I don't see how this a retcon. The "final island" was always called Raftel. Laugh Tale was a recent reveal and I don't think it is known to the general public. Or maybe it got morphed into Raftel similar to the name of a certain pirate king.

I wonder how accurate this screen is to the path taken... obviously directions and such are whatever, but I wonder if it has the proper number of islands between them and the Red Line

Luffy and crew did'nt exactly follow the route they picked, but... Excluding filler arcs and the clearly off-roads Enies Lobby and Thriller Bark, and taking in account that they used a Eternal Pose to reach Alabasta, which might mean they skipped a couple of Islands, this seems like roughly the good number of Islands from here to Fishman Island.

path should branch, intertwine.

In the first part of the grandline (it's different in the New world) when you get to a Island, the log pose will recharge and point to another one, invariably the same. For exemple, from Long Ring Long Land the log pose always points to Water 7. So it's possible for two routes to converge (If the log pose point to island X both from Island Y and Island Z), but not for one route to branch.
However, any given Ship will not necessarily
strictly follow one of the seven routes, because there actually are other ways to get somewhere than following the Log Pose, so yes in practice
the it's possible to jump from one route to another.

did you change the lines? cause now it looks more... show accurate.

shows that routes interest with each other at least.

that is some routes share some of the same islands and/or outright combine
