Scroll down. You can probably guess, this was predicted before 4e launched.

I can't wait! I also agree with Tycho though.

Am I really the only one thinking, "Dark Sun? Bleugh..."

No. Fuck Dark Sun. Gimmie Ravenloft, or Planescape, or Spelljammer...

Bah, Ravenloft's just a Cliche on Ice; Spelljammer a high-concept nerdgasm; while Planescape is Manual of the Planes made into a campaign setting. Dark Sun, darn it, is an original.

Dark Sun never captured my imagination or struck me as unique; it just seemed like A Canticle for Leibowitz with everything interesting replaced with D&D. It's a great trope mixer like Ravenloft, Spelljammer, and Planescape were (and Ebberon is, I suppose), but the combination of Dying Earth with D&D never caught my attention quite the way some of the other settings did.

Fair enough, but what sold me on Dark Sun were the city-states and the merchant houses. It wasn't just "Mad Max in D&D" there was a real attempt to create a culture behind it.

Sure, but I'm not sure how that's absent in other settings (well, except Spelljammer...)

-nice- (my first guess was Spelljammer, but this was my second...and, of course, in some ways Spelljammer is the 4e -default- setting).
