I would like to see Iomandra. But I'm a sucker for island-hopping high seas adventure plus dragons. It's not Nentir Vale, but there is also a LOT of 4e lore included in the setting.
yeah, I am going to cut that up for my setting idea as my idea is ideally supposed to be nuts.Visionaries: Knights of the Magical Light. It was a regrettably short-lived '80s post-apocalyptic science-fantasy show and toyline. It's basically about knights turning into holographic animal totems. In addition, each had either single-use magic staffs or vehicles powered by magic. They would go on quests for powerful wizards to recharge their magic.
It also had a pretty catchy intro:
The '80s was a golden era of gonzo science fantasy: e.g., Thundarr, He-Man, Thundercats, Visionaries, etc. It was the product of toy marketers throwing random ideas against the wall and seeing what sticks. I can't deny that it was a massive influence on a lot of my own tastes.yeah, I am going to cut that up for my setting idea as my idea is ideally supposed to be nuts.

And the history of the lines is one of the funniest things ever:
This actually makes a ton of sense. I can't think of a specifically fantasy property that has more inroads with a Gen Z audience. And like you said, they're really worked on fleshing out the world via Legends of Runeterra.Runeterra, the setting for League of Legends.
No, I'm completely serious! Riot have really expanded on the lore for their world beyond "goofy fantasy mashup setting", making it into a coherent whole and giving the different factions depth and development. Considering the actual game barely uses the lore, it's surely a perfect candidate for some kind of RPG.
YES! I was just thinking of that myself. I think it would be perfect as a D&D setting! Heck, we already have rules for vehicles in Avernus!
They got a third party (I want to say Renegade Studios is the name?) working on a Transformers RPG (they also got a Deck Building game on the way). I think they're supposed to do other Hasbroverse properties.I could imagine them making RPGs using the D&D 5e engine for other product lines owned by Hasbro, like G.I. Joe, Transformers, and Power Rangers.
It's not what I would want, but I could see them doing it.
As far as fantasy settings are concerned, I also agree with the OP that something alone the lines of Council of Wyrms is not only possible, but likely. Could tap into the current popularity of both Kaiju and superhero movies.
I really like this idea. Which of course ensures that it will never happen. But I'm pretty safe in saying that it wouldn't anyway.1. Warhammer Fantasy (... the Old World ...)
Yes, I know they have their own TTRPG and probably would never do this. Yet despite being competitors, Magic the Gathering is partnering with Games Workshop to make Warhammer 40,000 cards. So, the two companies seem capable of working together even in today's competitive time; a remote possibility that they would partner on an official 5E book release.
