The early previews of Baldur's Gate 3 have been quite positive; I wouldn't be surprised if there are already plans for an Icewind Dale game (it's the next best known electronic property). A tabletop release of the same property can only help.
Sounds good to me, as long as it’s not another OMG FIRST LEVEL ADVENTURERS NEED TO SAVE THE WORLD!!!
Well, somebody needs to deliver the message to Drizzt so he can take care of the problem. I mean, Elminister is probably busy eating cake or something.
Isn't Icewind Dale just another part of the FR? That's hardly "new setting"... it's just "filling in a bit more of the map without anything genuinely new."
It's not even anyplace exotic or different like Mulholorand or Thay/Rasheman.
As I said elsewhere, by “new setting” they could just be talking about Theros.
Icewind Dale isn’t new by any stretch of the imagination, so that would be a bit of a PR flub.
They are not teasing Theros, as it has already been announced. Whatever they reveal in early June will be a new product.
