    WotC What classic setting SHOULD WotC publish and why?

    SCAG for Forgotten Realms plus the various adventures set in specific regions/cities that act as mini-gazateers, two Ravenloft books, two magic settings with Ravnica and Theros, and Eberron. So a paltry sum when compared to most older editions, though beating out 4e when it comes to dedicated...

    D&D General 1991 Dark Sun Setting Overview and Speculation

    4e had primal magic, which was non-defiling but involved contacting the super angry and scarred nature and elemental spirits of Athas. I liked it, but it wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea. Also has sorcerer's with arcane magic, so while you could lean on the Abberant Mind as the main Athasian...

    WotC New D&D survey from WotC

    That might depend on what kind of tweaks you're thinking of or what you mean by "more familiar", but the answer is most likely 'no'. MtG does have the Archenemy format, where one player uses a special overpowered deck to face a group of other players, but it's still a far cry from D&D.

    WotC What classic setting SHOULD WotC publish and why?

    That depends on how married to the status quo of "only those with the Spark can planeswalk" the MtG creative team are. Right now linking Planescape/Spelljammer officially with Magic would be a nightmare for them.

    D&D 5E Which Classic Settings do you think WotC will publish?

    The CW traditionally has a much heavier female leaning viewership. The Arrowverse has shook that up, of course, but stuff like Riverdale is very much with women viewers in mind.

    D&D General 1991 Dark Sun Setting Overview and Speculation

    The safe bet is them repeating a 4e and setting it right after Kalek's death. So, yeah, most of the novels won't be canon. They aren't going interested in making more classes. If they do anything, it will be subclasses or perhaps some kind of Supernatural Gift-esque system. And why would they...

    Van Richten's Guide to Ravenloft: An In-Depth Review

    You guys are really abusing the poor metaphor right now. They don't have a problem with it, so the onerous is really on you to suggest a solution.

    Van Richten's Guide to Ravenloft: An In-Depth Review

    They've made it very clear they are not nearly as concerned about the potential for abuse as you are. Also, this Magic the Gathering metaphor you keep using is not nearly the slam dunk you seem to think it is.

    WotC New D&D survey from WotC

    What did you answer in regards to having every played Magic? That seems to be the real common denominator.

    WotC New D&D survey from WotC

    The fact that my entire Magic collection consists of 2 guild starter decks from 2012, 3 planeswalker decks from 2019 and 2020, and the arena starter kit seems like it would have been information that might have been useful to give my answers some context.

    D&D 5E Everything We Know About The Ravenloft Book

    The previous version of Ravenlofy had been abandoned by Wizards for 15 years. The old plot was not going to be continued, at least officially. My heart goes out to fans hurt by that, especially if the new version is a worse one. But I see this more as a new Battlestar Galactica or She-Ra...

    D&D 5E Everything We Know About The Ravenloft Book

    That's taking it personal, which I would recommend not doing. I could never watch something like Gotham, which makes massive, sometimes in my view detrimental changes to Batman lore, but I don't take it as an personal slight I get what they're doing, it's just not for me. They made changes that...

    D&D 5E Players Killing Players for stupid reason

    So maybe I missed it somewhere, but it seems like you've completely skipped over anyways of preventing the rogue from going through with their plans. Did you try asking the rest of the party to help you restrain them? You sound fairly well-to-do, hire some heavies to capture them before they...

    D&D 5E Everything We Know About The Ravenloft Book

    So I think it was a misunderstanding because I read it at first as Innistrad being the Snyder Cut in the analogy. But the context of the post gives the quote a negative vibe, so I'm not sure your interpretation hits the mark completely.
