    Ravens Bluff would make a lot of sense. It was home of the RPGA Living City campaign that ran from 1987 until 2004. I think that was the first and longest running living campaign ever. I guess even I should have some material somewhere.

    Beamdog would have lots of horrible material to mine from.

    At least it's not the depressingly boring Sword Coast again.

    I don't think Beamdog is particularly attuned to the realities of the market.

    So have we concluded the game is set in the Dark Sun universe, and will it use a 3D engine or a revamped infinity engine similar to Dragonspear?

    I don't see why they would invent something new when they've got so much stuff lying around; they could just be inserting a new deity into an existing setting.

    True, but one of the reasons to buy D&D was that you could build your own world. Meh. Let's see what they pull out. As long as it isn't the Sword Coast again, I'm at least curious.

    If the D&D brand is used outside pen and paper, most people will expect an existing setting.

    I love D&D and many of its worlds. Too bad FR generally sucks but it's all they ever make stuff for, if they make anything at all.

    Not very good artist, really. Or at least, her version of female concept is not pleasing.

    Looks pretty normal for concept art of common townsfolk. The point is to show a bunch of costumes for the 3D modellers to create, not to draw pretty paintings.

    I scrolled back, and saw the axes, just not my art style.
