For the most part the flavor and narrative of the Giant Options Unearthed Arcana make sense. There are a few misses. I’m most excited for the Druid, Vigor of the Hill Giant and Rune Caster Apprentice.
Once a Dragonlance fanatic seeing the Unearthed Arcana point towards the future is a nostalgia bomb of excitement. Added benefit? Most of the playtest belongs in my home world immediately.
The six new races being tested are mostly connected to Spelljammer, with a hint of Planescape, Dark Sun, and Star Frontiers.
I like most of the story behind the new Draconic UA, and only see need for a couple tiny tweaks.
One favorite ability from each of the four new races available to playtest.

More important than the new racial options and mechanics in the latest UA is the sidebar titled Design Note: Changes to Racial Traits.
