    Dead Game worlds

    I was thinking about doing some supplemental material for one of the old settings and wanted to see if there was any interest on the boards here.
    Greyhawk - Maybe focus on some little described kingdom or city

    Dragonlance - Maybe detail a city or even a nation
    Taladas - cover the Bakali or even the Gnomes there

    Forgotten Realms - always wanted to work over the Great Grey lands
    Al-Qadim - too many things to work on here
    The Horde - so little was done in this setting, I'd really like to see it a bit more player freindly
    Maztica - One of the port cities would be fun
    Kara-Tur - I'd love covering some sort of trade route between here and the Heartlands

    Mystara (Blackmoor) - Played only a little, but willing to detail something out for fun

    Spelljammer - Work up a plausible Crystal Sphere or adventure

    Ravenloft - One of the newer lands or an adventure into a little referenced one?

    Dark Sun - Cover one of the smaller way points or even work out one of the Kreen cities in the Crimson Savannah?

    Planescape - Soo many levels, where to begin?

    Birthright - Never played it, but maybe its an old favorite?

    Lankhmar - Lots that was never done here

    I'd be up for supplemental stuff, adventures, stories whatever strikes your fancy. Just leave a comment and we'll see what ideas everyone has...

    I'd be interested in anything you might have to add or flesh out an area. Of course I'd have to go with one of the worlds where I already extensive collections of:

    Greyhawk
    Forgotten Realms
    Al-Qadim
    The Horde
    Maztica
    Kara-Tur
    Spelljammer
    Ravenloft

    Planescape or Dark Sun are also interesting settings though I don't have much on them.

    Spelljammer is always good, but if your making a Sphere than your essentially creating a whole campaign world in itself.

    Would love more Greyhawk stuff.

    Could always do Dawnforge as well from Fantasy Flight Games. They had three books total for it. With enough empty areas where many things are possible.

    Dark Sun would be cool to do an "end times" scenario for this. One where the planet finally dies completely.

    I read they are going to update Dark Sun for 4e though.

    I can never get enough stuff for the Realms.

    A: All of them, because you never, EVER split the party!

    God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can change, and the weaponry to make the difference.

    They also produced 2 or 3 adventures for it. I would not mind seeing Dawnforge redone in 4E. that was a good world
    Never trust a smiling GM, that's when they're dangerous.

    Nope only one adventure, a campaign setting, and a players supplement. Thats it, 3 books only.

    The 4th book was a complation of all 3 books in one book.

    I'm currently playing in a Birthright campaign, it seems to be a pretty good setting
    (this is my first time playing it). The DM seems to be creating most of the adventures and developing most of the areas we are playing in, and often on the fly...

    I will be interested to see exactly what they attempt to do with Dark Sun in 4e. Not because I will play it in 4e but simply as a curiousity piece to see how well or poorly it translates (I'm voting "poorly" but then, I didn't even much care for the Dark Sun conversions that were done for 3.0/3.5, so maybe I'm a tad critical).

    I can always go further into Greyhawk. In fact, in the pre-internet days I wrote quite a bit about it, filling in some under-mapped or explored areas. I always wanted to see the rest of Oerth mapped, though now I kind of like that it's left open. Every adventure I do is set there and I felt like the Glossography and Fantasy Settings could have been expanded.

    if you are wanting more greyhawk, then go to http://www.canonfire.com/cfhtml/index.php, and the oerth journal. they are two of the more active (and very quasi-official in material) greyhawk communities.

    wotc has an agreement with several fan websites for them to be the officially recognized repository of 3.x material for certain campaigns. those websites are to produce material updating the campaign to 3.x and are considered 100% official wotc produced. the specifics of the agreement state that they are co-owned by both wotc and by the owners of the site(s).

    the official 3.x site for birthright is http://www.birthright.net/ .

    the official 3.x site for planescape is http://www.planewalker.com/ .

    the official 3.x site for mystara (including hollow world, red steel, and part of the blackmoor setting) is http://pandius.com/ .

    the official 3.x site for spelljammer is http://www.spelljammer.org/ (Beyond the Moons).

    the official 3.x site for ravenloft was http://www.kargatane.com/ until Sword & Sorcery Studios purchased the license to produce 3.x material... but since their site is kinda unreachable, current status is unknown. I think the license has either ran out and has not been renewed, or is about to.

    today, for some reason, athas.org and birthright.net are unreachable, though they have been fine in the recent past.

    there is no official 3.x fansite for greyhawk, though the aforementioned two sites are the closest thing out there. greyhawk has been officially depreciated with the release of 4th edition. the estate of gygax and rob kuntz still own portions and bits. also check out http://www.trolllord.com/ and http://pied-piper-publishing.com/ for gygax and kuntz's sites, respectively.

    there is also no official 3.x fansite for the realms, but both the realms (now default for 4.x) and darksun continue in 4e.

    I remember playing two adventures in Al-Qadim and it was brilliant. Could easily imagine splicing in the imagery of the Persians from the movie '300'. I know that you said "too many things to work on here", but a very nearly blank canvas could be just the thing to work on!
