This coming October, a 360+ page hardcover which delves into Dungeons & Dragons' various worlds and settings will be released. The book isn't from WotC--it's from Ten Speed Press--but it's by Adam Lee, who wrote for Baldur’s Gate: Descent into Avernus and Waterdeep: Dragon Heist. The book comes full of 50-years of artwork, and is narrated by the famous wizard Mordenkainen. Additionally, the book contains some original fiction.

Dungeons & Dragons Worlds & Realms: Adventures from Greyhawk to Faerûn and Beyond is available for pre-order already.

The book covers Greyhawk, Mystara, Dragonlance, Faerun, Eberron, the Feywild and Shadowfell, Spelljammer, the Nine Hells, the Abyss, Sigil, and the Far Realm. It's a book of lore and story, not a rulebook, giving an overall of D&D's entire multiverse and its many worlds.

There are lot of worlds on the Material Plane that only get a paragraph mention in some book and I'll doubt they'll get a mention in this book. Also some of the mentioned miscellaneous worlds might be some of the MtG settings that got a D&D campaign book.

I have a hard time picturing what Mystara brings to the table for them. A third kitchen sink setting in the mix would be a weird choice for them to make. The only thing I can see them doing is a Glantri-focused project, since they haven't done anything with true magocracies in 5E.

We'll see. I suspect it's just a nostalgia play, but I certainly wouldn't object to an urban adventure in Glantri City with its canals, scheming wizards, etc. Renaissance Venice with magic is a pretty awesome setting.

I don't get why they didn't make The Realm IE the cartoon setting, think of the nostalgia!. I mean yeah to late since the shoehorned into Faerun but man, I would have loved an Indepth guide to all the locations with maps etc the kids visited in the show. Ive found great fan made maps on the web though.
