    Ed Greenwood to write 5E's Forgotten Realms

    A recent DDI article seems to indicate that (original FR author) Ed Greenwood will be authoring the 5th Edition (D&D Next) version of the Forgotten Realms. The paragraph in question reads: "Recently I've seen petitions and strong arguments that Wizards should let Ed design the Forgotten Realms for the next edition of the game. I couldn't agree more, and some of that work is already under way. The Forgotten Realms has changed a lot in the last 25 years, and although there are major themes and ideas and flavors that haven't changed at all, in some ways the Realms has veered away from Ed's original vision. He's always been on board the Realms ship, but he hasn't always been at the rudder (to use his own metaphor), and we are rectifying that even as we speak. Keep your eyes out for some big announcements along those lines in the coming months."

    You can find the quote in the article Book Wyrms: Elminster on WotC's website.

    Note: unfortunately, while promoting this to a news article, I screwed up and the comments up until that point are now shown in an incorrect order. My apologies. I'll be more careful next time! - Morrus.

    It makes a lot of sense.

    4E's changes killed the Realms. Ed should relaunch the timeline from some point prior to the end of 3E.

    That's included in "prior to the end of 3E".

    The Time of Troubles occurs between 1e and 2e actually.

    I thought this was pretty clear from the start. Around the time they announced 5e they also announced "Ed Greenwood Presents Elminster's Forgotten Realms" and at one of the first pannels (DnDXP was it?) Mearls said: "The Realms will be supported from the start [by the new edition]."

    Total, and Dragonlance before the War of the Lance, Dark Sun before the Prism Pentad, Ravenloft before the Grand Conjunction, and Planescape before the Faction War, thank you.
