D&D 5E Revisited Setting News: Its not the 2023 Classic setting, but rather for 2024

Right...but the new to 5E classic settings are not the revisited 5E setting. They're separate things. They specified that the revisited setting was one they already did for 5E. So they're revisiting a setting that already had material published for it in 5E. That doesn't mean it has to be a setting book. This qualifies. A cameo is a small, walk-on appearance. This doesn't qualify. A full book about one setting isn't a cameo. This is a revisit to a setting they've already published in 5E.

Winninger has already confirmed via Twitter that the setting revisit is happening in 2024, so this is not that either.

But, unless I've really overslept, it isn't 2024, which is when they said the revisit would take place. And they said that it would be a full setting-type book, which this isn't.

This is definitively not the revisit.

(By the way, you're posting in a thread that even says the revisit is in 2024 in the title!)

You know, the more I think about it, I think we'll be seeing a "cleaned up" version of the Realms with some of the problematic issues with races and cultures updated and/or downplayed (if not outright removed, although they'll probably do pruning only when necessary). That's definitely the way things are moving in general, and, specifically, we already know how they're updating the drow in the setting.

A cleaned up version would be just fine, perhaps with some original innovations too, but I just hope it’s Greyhawk rather than FR.
Greyhawk fits the 50th so much better and allows for player agency so much more than the “Elminster deals with it, or Drizz’t does” of FR.
