I genuinely don't see why people want Eldraine. It's... it's like Grimm, Hans Christian Anderson, and Mother Goose made a setting. It's so close to camp you have to walk around the tent stakes.
Yup, agreed. Of all the Magic settings, this would probably be the one I'm least interested in.

Yup, agreed. Of all the Magic settings, this would probably be the one I'm least interested in.
One of the more likely ones to happen, though, since the Setting (qua Setting, aside from gameplay considerations) was apparently well-received and has a lot of room for Magic design space (and unique D&D trope space, to boot).

James Wyatt has said I'm the past he didn't think that any Setting that received a Planeshift document will ever get a full book, since those are freely available alongside the detailed Art of Magic the Gathering books. This would exclude Zendikar, Innistrad, Kaladesh, Amonkhet, Ixalan and Dominaria from the main list. But time will tell if that holds true, as more of those get new Magic Sets.

So, that would leave Tarkir (which would be awesome) which is overdue for a return if it will ever happen, Kaldeim, Eldraine, Ikoria, and Strixhaven.

If they were to do an Eldraine book, I'm sure they follow the "camelot stuff is the bulk of the cake, fairy tales are the icing" philosophy they mentioned guided the set.
we have sufficient euro fantasy unless they want to do super mythical accurate spirtes I see little left to work with, it is a time to go east or south.

IMO they need to either do Eldraine or a proper Feywild book. Exactly because the game doesn’t well support Grimm’s tales or stuff like the Welsh Mabinogion, and a lot of fantasy nerds and D&D players are really into that stuff.

yeah, I do not hear of a market for the former and Mabinogion is somehow more foreign to me than the journey to the west we must run in very different circles.

what is the point of the fey wild that people like or care about as I just see elf and fae world and that sounds like a bad time?

The name is foreign to you, but I rather doubt Merlin and Taliesin and Mannanon Mac Llyr are that foreign to you. As for the “market”, well I can only say look around the TTRPG community. It’s pretty easy to see the market for fairy tale based media. 🤷‍♂️

You don’t have to get it, tbh. Other people like and want more of it.

I know merlin but the others are unknown and I could get in a car and drive to wales.

I would still like to know the appeal as it might be enlightening?

Most fantasy nerds know those names IME, but it doesn’t matter.

Playing in the Feywild is fun, I don’t know how to explain why.

The group I play for is likely to be going through the feywild shortly, it's (hopefully) going to be an epic journey through this magical land filled with strange fey creatures, talking magical animals, and unknown dangers. The feywild brings in new experiences that, in general, don't exist in the mortal world. I've been keeping an eye out for some good artwork to show my players to give a visual guide of this plane of existence.

so the same as every dnd setting or am I missing something? I think I am missing something.
 



Show your work. Explain why you think this. It isn’t at all obvious, and comes across as a pretty wild claim.

God the amount of “well actually” hubris in this post. It’s really wild. An world of incredibly dangerous wilderness made up of extreme geography is...prime D&D adventure time. And I don’t even use dungeons in most campaigns.

Not really. It’s got earth motes, but you can run a whole game in one mega-forest.

What about the Eldrazi do you think D&D isnt built for? I’ve used them just fine, when running Zendikar in D&D .

D&D is far from “very specific”. It absolutely has room for more than one Kaiju (the Terrasque is a kaiju), and more interesting monster mechanics for truly colossal monsters. The rest of the setting is completely compatible with how a lot of people already play D&D. Same deal with Zendikar.
You seem really over-excited and like you aren't at all interested in a good faith discussion of this subject so, yeah I don't think so.
 


how it is a place that is super magical full of elves and works of narratives, not facts which tends to end horribly.
It is the world that exists beyond the veil
It is a world of wonders, unconstrained by such pety thoughts as 'The laws of physics' or 'Reality'
It is a world of laws unknown and strange, where a wrong slip of the tongue results in your name being taken by a lucky sprite
It is a world of stories, shaped by them and feeding from them

Feywild's had proto-versions of it in D&D for absolute yonks for a reason. Plane of Faerie's been a little explored place until the Feywild finally came along and put a face to the name

I’m trying to turn a page on this sort of altercation, so all I will say is; I’ve not argued in bad faith at any point in this thread, but you have been incredibly condescending and disrespectful both times you’ve replied to me.
