Which do you prefer?

So we're down to eight. In the last round, there were two surprises, in my mind. One is that Ravenloft handily beat Dragonlance, 37-17. I know its a pretty small sample size, but once you get over 50 votes it becomes somewhat meaningful, and that's a pretty lopsided victory.

The other surprise wasn't an upset, but it was narrower than I thought it would be: Golarion just narrowly escaped Birthright, 28-25. I would have thought the margin would have been broader.

Anyhow, on to Round 3, the Final Eight. I'm going to give this one five days so as to get more votes.

Um - is this supposed to have a poll?

Edit: oops - jumped the gun, there!

One comment on this round - the two most "variant" settings, Eberron and Dark Sun - head to head seems harsh.

That one was a lot harder. Eberron, Golarion, and FR have far broader settings- and are therefore open to more types of stories. That's great, but my games tend to be heavily themed- so I ended up picking the ones with the more intriguing premise to my eyes. In the case of Greyhawk vs. Mystara, Greyhawk is simply more familiar to me thanks to 3e.

If Planescape can hang on to that early lead and knock out FR that would count as a huge upset in my view.

And come on, Mystara - it's only Greyhawk! Get it together, there's still time! :)

Its early yet but it looks like its going to be Greyhawk vs. Ravenloft and Planescape vs. Dark Sun in the Semifinals. I'm still hoping for a Golarion win over Ravenloft, but who knows.

Greyhawk vs. Planescape in the Finals? That's a tough one to call. Planescape is an old EN World favorite, and if Shemeska can get his crew to come out and vote, old Sigil might have a chance. But Greyhawk has been getting a lot of love these days, and is the old classic.
 








Planescape is proving to be a bit of a surprise. That might be a bit or an upset. I wonder if someone mobilized the Planescape community. Or if anti-FR sentiment is pushing other voters.

Really? I've always thought there was much, much love for Planescape (probably disproportionate to how much it was actually played).

There IS much love for Planescape, including on these boards.

I don't think I know of anyone (well, who hasn't been paid for TSR or WotC) who "loves" the Realms. I think people like to use them...


Maybe I should stop the analogy.

What I don't understand is Greyhawk is cleaning up while FR is getting beaten, yet they're essentially the same thing. When I first saw this playoff setup I fully expected these two to meet in the finals having mowed everything else down like grass on the way there. Elminster and Drizz't can't make that much difference to the perception of these two setting, can they?

Lan-"that said, the poll should have had 1e FR, 3e FR and 4e FR as separate options as they are so different"-efan
