    Which non-Realmsian setting for you?

    So Chris Perkins may or may not be working on a non-FR based product for 2016. Let's assume for now that he is. Which of WotC's many varied and wonderful settings do you think they should delve into next? Gothic horror? High fantasy? Giant space hamsters? The planes?

    BTW, based on Mearls' talk of psionics recently, I reckon it's Dark Sun. But that's just a W-A-G.

    I think Eberron will be next, but there are several I would love to see and purchase.

    I've always been fond of Eberron. Never got deep enough into Greyhawk to really see the depth of it, and I've not played most of the others. Plus, I was introduced to DnD through the video game Baldur's Gate, so the Forgotten Realms have always held a special place in my heart whereas I didn't get much of an intro to Greyhawk.

    I was also incredibly fond of Ghostwalk, but never got a chance to play it. Which was sad.

    Warcraft is a setting I love for the video games. I would love to see an updated DnD take on it.

    I'm hoping that the references to Sigil sprinkled throughout the core books and the fact that monsters like the modrons were included the MM are indications that Planescape will be revisited in some way or another in a future AP. And I would love to see new Ravenloft material too; maybe an AP for the fall to coincide with Halloween.

    I voted Eberron. Dark sun would be a close second, followed by Al'Quadim. Sigil, maybe. Something that turns normal on its ear; something that presents something other than the standard races in the conventional race/culture combos in the conventional medieval-ish fantasy setting. By the time I'm looking for a different setting, I want something different. Something that inspires me to stretch my preconceptions and broadens my approach to the games and settings I run or create.

    Those are the settings I want to see. Ideally, I would like to see something like Eberron or Darksun, but something new. Something that makes me go "huh, never thought of that in that way before...cool!"

    I voted Council of Wyrms, Spelljammer, Greyhawk, and Mystara.

    However, I would also like to see something completely new. Specifically, something modern-ish with an "other" side like Harry Potter or Narnia.

    Eberron and Dark Sun are the two that I'd like to see sooner, because they have specific classes and races that I want to see in 5e asap. Artificers, Changelings, Warforged, Psionics, Thri-Kreen, etc.

    But, if I were to be honest ... I think I'd really like a new campaign setting.

    I'd really rather see them make a new setting, rather than try to retcon/retrofit settings from previous editions..
