D&D General D&D Settings sorted by material released

The Glen

Out of a morbid curiosity I wanted to know which setting had the most support as far as supplements and adventures went. I went through the various catalogs and got a decent count of each one, trying to avoid reprints where I could. This covers all five editions, as well as BECMI/RC. After I counted all the RPG products, I did go back and count the novels.

Forgotten Realms: 186 (15 boxed sets, 81 accessories, 59 Adventures, 31 computer games)
Mystara: 121 (10 boxed sets, 41 accessories, 62 adventures, 8 computer games)
Ravenloft: 120 (8 boxed sets, 75 accessories, 32 adventures, 3 computer games)
Greyhawk: 92 (2 boxed sets, 89 adventures, 1 computer game) Greyhawk classified all their supplements as modules in the official list.
Dragonlance: 73 (3 boxed sets, 33 accessories, 29 modules, 8 computer games)
Dark Sun: 43 (7 boxed sets, 26 accessories, 9 adventures, 1 computer game)
Planescape: 33 (6 boxed sets, 14 accessories, 12 adventures, 1 hell of a computer game)
Birthright: 32 (5 boxed sets, 21 accessories, 5 adventures, 1 computer game)
Eberron: 29 (20 accessories, 8 adventures, 1 computer game)
Spelljammer: 14 (4 boxed sets, 4 accessories, 5 adventures, 1 computer game)

When you add the novels the list skews wildly.
Forgotten Realms 512 (+326 novels)
Dragonlance: 263 (+190 novels)
Ravenloft: 144 (+24 novels)
Mystara: 131 (+10 novels)
Greyhawk: 106 (+14 novels)
Eberron: 69 (+40 novels)
Dark Sun: 59 (+16 novels)
Planescape: 39 (+6 novels)
Birthright: 38 (+6 novels)
Spelljammer: 20 (+6 novels)

Interesting stats. You’re missing Kingdoms of Kalamar, which while made by Kenzer and Co, was an official D&D setting during 3E.

40 novels for Eberron? I would not have guessed.

Neat that Dragonlance jumps from 5th to 2nd when you count novels. Did you count Saga stuff for Dragonlance? Some hefty sourcebooks there like their Wings of Fury on dragons of Krynn.
Yes I did, that's where a bulk of the accessories/sourcebooks turned up. Dragonlance had problems with a lot of supplements that were all fluff, which made them less game books and more merchandising.

Eberron technically has 2 computer games if you count DDO for being set in both Eberron and Forgotten Realms.

Possibly a Idiot.
Where did you get the numbers for the computer games?

There are actually two D&D MMOs, one based off of 3.5 and set in Eberron, the other based of of 4e and set in FR.

When I say based off of an edition, I mean it loosely, they are MMOs after all.
 


Stormonu

Legend
I'm guessing Al-Qadim, Maztica, Kara-Tur and Horde are counted as FR?
Mystara gets Hollow World, Thunder Rift & Red Steel/Savage Coast?
Nothing for Council of Wyrms?
Did you count the Chainmail Miniatures game (from around 2K) as part of Greyhawk? What about the hardbound GreyHawk Adventures (I'm guessing that would be an "accessory")?

As an aside, I have an Access database I used to maintain, stopped updating it when 4E came out. Based just on RPG books, I get the following breakout (this does include reprints/compilations):

Al-Qadim [FR] (14 items; 1 campaign; 5 modules; 1 MM; 1 rulebook; 1 box set)
Birthright (31 items; 1 campaign; 5 modules; 4 rulebooks; 21 realmbooks)
BlackMoor (4 items; 1 campaign [non WotC]; 3 modules)
Council of Wyrms (2 items; 1 box set, 1 hardback)
Dark Sun (31 items; 2 campaign; 10 modules; 2 MM; 1 rulebook; 16 sourcebooks)
Diablo (4 items; 1 campaign; 1 module; 1 rulebook; 1 sourcebook)
DragonLance (47 items; 3 campaign; 35 modules; 2 MM; 6 sourcebooks)
Eberron (6 items; 2 campaign; 4 modules [I think I'm missing some of the hardbounds])
Forgotten Realms (125 items; 5 campaign; 51 modules; 3 MM; 3 rulebooks; 1 screen; 62 sourcebooks)
Greyhawk (78 items; 6 campaign; 62 modules; 1 MM; 8 sourcebooks; 1 wargame [GreyHawk Wars])
Historical Reference ["Real World"] (11 items; 9 campaigns; 2 modules)
Hollow World [Mystara] (8 items; 1 campaign; 4 module; 3 sourcebook)
Horde [FR] (4 items; 1 campaign; 3 modules)
Kalimar (12 items; 2 campaign; 9 modules; 1 sourcebook [probably incomplete list])
Karu-Tur [FR] (15 items; 1 campaign; 1 map; 8 modules; 2 MM; 1 rulebook; 1 sourcebook)
Lankhmar (14 items; 1 campaign; 8 modules; 5 sourcebooks)
Maztica [FR] (4 items; 1 campaign; 3 modules)
Mystara (111 items; 5 campaign; 68 modules; 2 MM; 12 rulebooks; 3 screens; 21 sourcebooks [mostly Gazetters])
Netheril [FR] (4 items; 1 campaign; 1 module; 2 sourcebooks)
Planescape (30 items; 4 campaign; 12 modules; 3 MM 4 rulebooks; 7 sourcebooks)
Ravenloft (72 items; 3 campaign; 32 modules; 5 MM; 2 rulebooks; 1 screen; 29 sourcebooks)
Red Death [Ravenloft] (4 items; 2 campaign; 2 sourcebooks)
Red Steel [Mystara] (5 items; 2 campaign; 1 MM; 2 sourcebooks)
Rokugan* [non-Wotc] (10 items; 1 campaign; 3 modules; 1 MM; 5 sourcebooks [likely incomplete)
SAGA 5th Age [Dragonlance] (9 items; 1 campaign; 1 module; 1 MM; 4 rulebooks; 2 sourcebooks)
Spelljammer (21 items; 2 campaign; 7 modules; 2 MM; 2 rulebooks; 1 screen)

* Adding this because the Rokugan campaign world was in the 3E Oriental Adventures

And since someone asked:

Generic (271 items; 1 map; 89 modules; 29 monsters; 82 rulebooks;10 screens; 56 sourcebooks)
[edit: sorry, first time around I included 3pp items]

Anyone want to count Nentir Vale products?

Did include all settings on the same world as part of that setting. Thunder Rift was the exception as its ties to Mystara were tenuous, but if you include them it's another 7 adventures, which keeps it in 2nd place in the gaming-related and 4th place if you include novels.

There's a long list of computer games for each setting, it's a bit hard to follow because it includes a lot of compilations or games that were deemed to be in a setting by has no other attachment other than just the name.
