That UA had as many Greyhawk references as Dragonlance, more Forgotten Realms references, and had Gem Dragons and Kobolds, neither of which exist on Krynn.
We do need a Forgotten Realms Campaign Book, because outside of the Swordcoast, nothing is properly supported and waiting to do each region in turn at the current rate of once outside of the Swordcoast every 5 years are so will have us all dust and bones before they are done.
No your right now is the time to do it, two AAA games this year set in FR, MtG AFR set, the FR movie is being shot, the moment is swimming in synergies. FR's fan base is going to get bigger and now is the time to strike.
For a moment I read this as "Nautiloid Spermjammer cards."
The Fairy Dragon god is originally from Greyhawk, like a lot of minor FR deities.
Their public statements are that THREE are coming out by end of 2022. The idea that they would only release a single classic over the ensuing years is laughable.There will be new (to D&D) settings as well as classic settings. Probably about half and half, so one classic and one new per year would be a reasonable guess.
Point is, it's a Setting generic UA.Like I said overlap, FR rolled Greyhawk for its none human deities, just like later it rolled Greyhawk for its greatest archwizard and Demiliches, it rolled Planescape for its Planetouched, it rolled Real World Polytheism for its religions, it rolled Nerath for Tieflings, Devas, Ravenqueen, ect..., it rolled Spelljammer for Spelljammer for Spelljammers and Nautiliods, ect...
Two tidbits and a Greyhawk borrowing, yes.
I would love to see Ghostwalk as part of a big book of undead content. The original had plenty of player-facing content that could be adapted.I would guess, though, that Jakandor and Ghostwalk are dead and gone for good, and if we see an Asian setting it won't be Kara-Tur.

I wasn't a 4E player -- bought the PHB, saw it wasn't for me, sold it immediately -- but a Nentir Vale book could have the Marshal base class, monsters with the bloodied condition, subclasses based on 4E classes, etc. I think there's plenty of content to support a setting and both player- and DM-facing book. I actually think it's firmly a top 5 choice for classic settings.Well except Nentir Vale but it's not one of the four and has a LOT of overlap with Greyhawk because they appropriated a lot of classic Greyhawk materials for it.
The city of Manifest is explicitly on the Prime Material. It's built above an open gateway to the land of the dead, allowing both player characters to enter the (shockingly small) land of the dead to rescue dead comrades and for characters that die nearby to switch to undead classes, something that the Ravenloft Lineages system will make even easier.Ghostwalk could be added to the Shadowfell somewhere maybe, in some future book, but it likely won't get its own setting book.

I'm not a Forgotten Realms fan by any means, but I'm shocked that we haven't gone back to the Dalelands since, I believe, 3E.At the very least, I expect to see the Dalelands be the setting for the next major FR adventure book, with a mini-gazetteer along the lines that was given to Ten Towns for Rime.
