    I prefer Al-Qadim / Arabian Adventures or Oriental Adventures.

    I wish I could articulate why I like them over the rest but I just do.

    Favorite Worlds

    My favorite world is by far Forgotten Reams, but there are other quality worlds as well. I think my first three have been mentioned many times in this thread but Harn hasn't. Harn is a great world with some of, if not the best maps I've ever seen for an RPG.1. Forgotten Realms2. Dragonlance3. Darksun4. HarnJC

    I picked Eberron, though I've never actually played in it (or anything other than home brewed worlds for that matter) one of my favorite races and one of my favorite classes are from Eberron, so I'd probably like it.

    I picked Pathfinder because it's the first campaign world since Planescape that really kept me hooked.

    Man, Ravenloft is struggling...
    I picked it for a few reasons:
    - Magic isn't Hollywood flashy
    - Evil is part of the mood
    - Subtlety rules
    The horror...the horror...
    Of course, my own setting is my favorite, which would vaguely classify as Middle Earth, which I didn't see in the list.

    I voted for FR , Al-Qadim & Arabian Adventures as I have the greatest exposure to the FR setting. I consider Al-Qadim/Arabian Adventures part of the extended FR setting.I'm torn concerning the 4th e. FR as I like some of the changes but dislike some of the other (like the changes to Genesai).

    I like greyhawk but never gamed with it. The setting isn't as high magic as FR or Eberron but more grittier than FR. I think Greyhawk would've fit WotC's whole 'thousand lights' thing. Oh well.

    Currently Eberron is my favorite setting . I like to use of magic & different take on traditional monsters.

    I'd have voted for Iron Kingdoms if it was on the list (did I miss it ?) . I love it but wasn't paying over $100 for the core books (monster manual included).

    Both Iron Kingdoms & Eberron are major influences on my own homebrew setting.

    I love Dragonlance.

    My reasons are simple: Towers of High Sorcery, & the Cataclysm

    any campaign that makes the rareness of high powered spell casters and a long history of the absence of divin spellcasters makes for a very dark world indeed. Perfect for gloom-and-doom campaigns.

    My absolute favorite is Forgotten Realms because the world is so detailed and expansive. I also love Spelljammer, Dragonlance, and Planescape, though. I really love it when sci-fi is mixed with fantasy, so I love the concept behind Spelljammer. Dragonlance is also a very detailed world, and I think the books are some of the best fantasy books I've ever read. Planescape is very unusual and unique.

    I started out with Forgotten Realms so it will always be my favorite setting. I usually use my own because most of the people I play with do not care about settings and just want to do there own thing.

    Forgotten Realms, It was the 1st. one I started with and still enjoy. Since I have come to enjoy Points of Light for 4th ed. and Pathfinder series.

    still greyhawk, though i have become much more fond of darksun lately, too. between greyhawk and blackmoor, they are the oldest settings out there for d&d, bar none.

    My favorite settings are Al-Qadim and Dark Sun. Despite that I seem to spend most of my time playing in Forgotten Realms. I guess its just the easy fall back, it follows all the traditional tropes so its easy to get into. Everyone knows how things work in there.

    I just really like the Arabian feel that Al-Qadim has. Unfortunately there's not a lot of material for it, and all of it is out of print for old editions. Its easy enough to adapt it to more modern rules, it just requires that much more preparation time.

    The actual setting of Dark Sun isn't all that exciting. The part that I like is that there's no magic in the game, which makes things much more challenging for the players. I like having combats deadly and encourage good role play to avoid it if possible, and that works very well in this setting.
