    So other than the fact that Lantan will be the focus of an adventure at some point and that there will be at least one setting released next year do we know anything else about next year's release schedule? If not when are we likely to get more information?

    I'll admit that I don't know much about Dragonlance. What would you say the hook is? Every time I see Dragonlance mentioned I'm given the impression that it's just a typical fantasy world. A very different focus on dragons, Wizard magic as a monolithic school that will hunt you down if you defy it's rules (including going beyond hedge wizardry without becoming part of the system), a world with very little divine magic even in the era where Divine magic had returned, very different takes on a few races (very interesting Dwarves, for instance), more personal and flawed deities, The Balance, and a strong and consistent theme in terms of how the world is built. For a start. Yeah, thatís always been its strength, and its weakness. Having an epic struggle against a monolithic foe can be great, but it can also make things difficult Ė capturing that epic feel without either infringing on the main story or having the main story overshadow the PCs isnít always an easy task. Were I to run a Dr...

Typical in a way that was not typical of D&D pre-1984, nor since outside of Dragonlance. Epic fantasy, rather than heroic fantasy. It is one of the most popular settings, next to the other biggies that you mention, too.

    I'll admit that I don't know much about Dragonlance. What would you say the hook is? Every time I see Dragonlance mentioned I'm given the impression that it's just a typical fantasy world. More heroic high fantasy. But, really, the hook is the key story. The famous War if the Lance.

    I honestly doubt that they'll even do Planescape just because of the fact that 4th & 5th seem to have incorporated the major features like the elemental planes and places like Bytopia and Mechanus in the core cosmology already. To me Planescape has a 50/50 shot of getting support. Far more likely that they'll just release a Manual of the Planes style book and flesh it out there. I don't think they will do Planescape. I think they will do Sigil. Possibly as part of an adventure, in the same way that Dragon Heist is a Waterdeep setting book. The hardback book format simply doesn't have enough pages to try and cram in the entire multiverse, and there is plenty of useable material on other planes already out in the wild.

    Honestly, I keep on seeing people bring up settings like Mystara and even Dragonlance and Greyhawk and I just don't see them coming anytime soon, if at all. they've already said that Forgotten Realms, Eberron, Dark Sun, Ravenloft and Planescape or SpellJammer are the most popular. I honestly doubt that they'll even do Planescape just because of the fact that 4th & 5th seem to have incorporated the major features like the elemental planes and places like Bytopia and Mechanus in the core cosmology already.

While the Mtg crossover with GGtR was surprising I don't see them doing more 2-3 more products like it (Barring any additional new planes) Ravnica was unique in that it was a planet/ planewide city. It worked because of the guilds and how they interact with each other. The problem with magic settings is that they have limited lore an...

  • 05:01 PM - Mercule quoted Chronos96 in post Two New Settings For D&D This Year
    Eberron- Noir, Steampunk, Adventure Eberron is not steampunk. It's relatively easy to bastardize into steampunk, for those so inclined, but it's not intended to be so. Dark Sun- D&D hard mode With the original "roll 5d4 for stats", DS wasn't so much "hard mode" as "inflated mode". If you used standard character generation, it was definitely hard mode. The reason I don't add planescape is because its cosmology, the positive and negative planes, the elemental planes, the 12 outer planes have all been added to the base cosmology in addition to the Feywild and Shadowfell. Wow. I hadn't considered that angle, but I hope you're right. I've never been a particular fan of Planescape. I don't hate it, but it's not really my "thing", either. I've been assuming one of the settings would be Planescape and the other would be either Eberron or Dark Sun. The big question is whether or not they've cracked Psionics behind the scenes and are just sitting on it. If they have I'd say that one of ...

  • 11:31 PM - Sacrosanct quoted Chronos96 in post Likelihood of getting an Isle of Dread remake or a full Feywild/Shadowfell campaign guide?
    True, but with the Isle of Dread being in the Feywild (At least in 4th ed) I feel like that would just be a logical next step. I do get where you're coming from with ToA but just look at locations in real life. The beaches in Mexico have a completely different feel than the beaches in Hawaii. I feel like they're going for different feelings of adventures ToA is very much about exploration but with the Isle being in the Plane of Water in 5th ed they could also do a planar adventure or focus on the mystery aspect with the island appearing randomly. Well, they are still beaches. Why would they do another beach when they still haven't done a desert yet? And when you're talking about Isle of Dread, you can't look at it through only a 4e lens. The isle has a long history of being "very much about exploration". In fact, ToA seems to me as a direct nod to Isle of Dread (when it was most well known and famous--B/X). Just because 4e did it differently doesn't mean it overrides all of the othe...

No Feywild connection. And while you are right that they can certainly explore the jungle hex crawl again, chances are other campaign genres will get attention first.

    Right, I just feel that after a certain point they'll have to release campaign settings/sandboxes. I really enjoyed Tomb of Annihilation but I don't always want to run a full adventure/campaign. True, I can cherry pick what I want but I just feel that by having a campaign setting would let players go where they want to. I realize that there's old material for people to use but I'd just prefer to be able to say turn to a page about Baldur's gate and then come up with a reason for the players to go there.Well, based on what WotC has been saying, they are very much tying campaign setting material to APs for the foreseeable future. A Feywild AP sooner or later is quite likely, and has been hinted at. Isle of Dread is a definite candidate for a Curse of Strahd treatment, but probably not too soon after ToA. Strahd is arguably already a Shadowfell AP, but I wouldn't be surprised to see another eventually. Actual, traditional campaign settings seem to not be on the radar, though they have something...
