Scarred Lands of course.
Other. Tell us about it below.
Of the most popular campaign settings for Dungeons & Dragons out there, which is your favorite?
Scarred Lands of course.
Kara-Tur (original Oriental Adventures). GMing it now with a group of five players.
Forgotten Realms 4 sure!
But, I love the richness of the Forgotten Realms setting. I wish D&D Online had gone the FR route instead of switching to Eberron mid-design. I would have LOVED to have experienced Waterdeep in a MMPOG.
Eberron isn't an AD&D setting. It's a D&D 3.5 setting.
Hmm.. I guess technically that's right. I think of anything after the 5-box Dungeons and Dragons set that I first owned as Advanced Dungeons and Dragons -- from 1st edition on.
Speaking of which? Does anyone actually still have those boxed sets? It'd be cool to look through those again, and reminisce about the days when Elf was a class
Rokugan! Oriental Adventures... the best place ever!
Midwrathe setting, followed closely by Five Worlds and The Great River. These are all 3.5e shared settings played in the PNW.
Birthright -- the most under valued setting ever produced by TSR. Great world, screams adventure. Still have and use it obsessively.
For 3.5 I'm running the Blackmoor MMRPG and am finding that I really like the setting as I dig into it. Great feel, great world, lots of adventure options. Reminds me of how I felt when I first got into Birthright. The world just 'fits' me.
...I'll bet you can guess my favorite campaign setting
Mystara by far, particularly the Known World. The Gazetter series not only attended to the mundane details of each country: history, people, movers and shakers; but they were full of plot twists (snippets of information for the DM to build upon. Intrigue was the aim of the authors, and the more ways to keep the players guessing about the outcomes of their actions the better! Yeah, you can become a ruler, but there are those out there that want your job! In my opinion, that's when the fun really begins.
I'm curious. Has anyone tried Ptolus? This writeup over at White Wolf builds it up quite a bit. But, at $120, it would have to be absolutely spectacular for me to throw down the cash on a single book.
I have never acctually enjoyed any of the set worlds, per sae. Most of the settings I have played were home brewed, or at least heavily modified versions. In fact, I have two favorite worlds which I use in the fantacy games I occasionally get to run. They are definatly homebrewed.
