I want a brand new setting. ... Of course, I only want a brand new setting that I personally happen to like. Heh, I dont want a brand new setting that I dont like.
From a business perspective, how can there be any other way? Take a traditional setting that is tried-and-true, that the minority love and that the majority seem able to tolerate.
One D&D will have Forgotten Realms, as the default setting. Again. How can it be otherwise?
I personally dislike Forgotten Realms. There are parts of it that are cool. The Drow are guilty pleasure. I am onboard with the Uda, Loren, and Aeven Drow cultures. And I am onboard with how One D&D makes all Elves differ only by means of which innate spells they choose to cast. All differences between any elves are learned cultural differences. But hate the gods of the Forgotten Realms cosmology; I hate the alignment Wheel dominions of the Astral Plane, but mostly because of the ill-conceived gods that live there. I want it gone, and everything in FR that refers to it gone. Also, Forgotten Realms is old-school D&D and racist-essentialism of "races" is intrinsically built into the setting, and difficult to undo without radically altering the setting. Compare, Uda, Loren, and Aeven.
I would prefer Forgotten Realms gone. But what else there? What other setting would the MAJORITY of D&D gamers be able to tolerate?
