  • Mythic Odysseys of Theros
    A list of official D&D 5E settings, plus stand-alone games and campaign settings by third party publishers. Third-party games and settings are produced using the Open Gaming License, and use the D&D 5E ruleset to explore new genres and worlds.

    The most common setting theme is Ancient Greek mythology, with several games or settings inspired by it: Theros, Arkadia, Hellenistika, Land of Myth, Odyssey of the Dragonlords, Ancient Adventures, and the Scarred Lands.

    Official D&D Settings​

    These campaign settings are produced by WotC for D&D 5th Edition. Some have their own standalone books, while others are the setting for single storylines (adventures). Those with standalone setting books are marked with an asterisk.
