That "Ed Greenwood's FR" product looks extremely interesting, even from the point of view of a non-FR fan. It should be interesting to see how the setting evolved, and how he went about building it.
Interesting that they're looking at the possibilities of bringing Dragon and Dungeon back to print.

So at Gen-Con they said the next campaign would be "something with a twist", If this FR book is that, I have to say I am sorely disappointed. I honestly would want it to be ANYTHING but Forgotten Realms.

For the record I am happy with the return of Monte Cook. I hope he has a long contract because he has been "displaced" from WotC before. With all this nostalgia talk we can't forget that no matter what the fans would like to see: the Business Model of AD&D is not returning. We can only hope that some of the flavor of it does. Important also to remember that the old business model lead to bankruptcy. I guarantee you that D&D Next is being designed with 6th edition in mind. Yes, I am serious. If they are truly trying to create the edition of editions then they could well be looking at an evergreen angle where they just reprint all the core books with new artwork and minor changes every 5 years (as happened once during 2nd Edition. Every player I gamed with bought one of those new black Player's Handbooks even-though they pretty much didn't need too).

I remain disappointed that they keep saying they won't be telling a story, that they want us to do that....that's great for people in the hobby for years, but just awful for growing the hobby. It is also bad for the "shared experience" of D&D. I hope I"m not reading too much into that.
That said, I get to spend a lot less money on D&D this year than most...so my budget will be happy.

The Menzoberranzan book seems interesting enough, more so if it's system neutral...
Alas, I'm also disgusted to see that another year passes and there isn't even one Eberron book to be released (Would have gladly seen a book like the Neverwinter Campaign setting for this much beloved universe).
I understand well that FR is primary in their considerations, but now, I see their editorial politic regarding Eberron to be somewhat downright reluctant. I mean, DDI once (exceptionaly twice) a month doesn't account for the s....load of articles and supplements there is for FR.
Same for Dark Sun, too.
Seems it's another year WOTC won't have my money.

For me the best news is the 4e Underdark supplement: goblins & kobolds as player races, yay!
In a sense, the D&D game has no rules, only rule suggestions. - Tom Moldvay
