No doubt.I own most of the other FR materials... its just shocking to me....
Whaa?!What really shocks me the most... if they aren't going to produce a Forgotten Realms Campaign Sourcebook anytime soon... what about all the other settings... This has seriously bummed me out.
Exactly. WTF... still shocked by this news.. it was the thing I was looking forward the most. I was under the impression that the Multiverse would take front and center in this edition...Whaa?!
If they are not going to support their primary setting (for modules and living gaming) I don't expect much for other settings.
Which is disappointing. Some settings don't need much (Greyhawk or Mystara) but some have some unique elements (Eberron's artificers, Dark Sun's defilers, Planescape's factions, Dragonlance's wizard orders and knighthoods) I'd like to see done. It's hard to say "Pick your own" when we don't have a mechanical way of expressing those things.
This is bodeing poorly for the "multiverse" aspect.
It is possible that the first setting book will be a multiverse one. We know things like Warforged and Kender will be in the DMG. If you make a book that covers all unique mechanics from different settings and combine it with the setting PDFs, you could take care of many settings at once. Then proceed with large single campaign books later on.Exactly. WTF... still shocked by this news.. it was the thing I was looking forward the most. I was under the impression that the Multiverse would take front and center in this edition...
You are prolly right. I hope you are right.I'd bet real money we'll see FRCS during late 2015/early 2016.
"Not in development" doesn't mean "We ain't gonna do it".
This is what I am talking about.... 300+ page campaign settings with all the bells and whistles..... a monster manual for each setting... I am ready to throw lots of cash at this company...I too am a little bummed about this. Personally I want full 300+ campaign setting books for the following:
And after that theres still Greyhawk, Eberron, Dark Sun, and possibly even Spelljammer, Mystara, and Birthright, all of which I wouldn't mind seeing as well. One of the things I was most excited about with this edition was the return of the multiverse, I really thought we were going to get multiple products for multiple worlds in the vein of 2E (though accomplished more soundly business-wise).
I love Ed Greenwood Presents book. Great read and lots of fun. Anyway.Ed Greenwood Present's the Forgotten Realms book doesn't have enough information? That was just released not too long ago. Plus you have all the previous versions of the book?
What do you need? NPC stat blocks?
