The New Living Campaign?

Does anyone know what the new Living Campaign for Dungeons and Dragons will be?

I mean to say that if past actions are able to predict future outcomes then we can assume that the Living Forgotten Realms will be mothballed when Dungeons and Dragons hits in August. After all, they did the same with the Living City and Living Greyhawk when Third and Fourth premiered. So what will it be?

Personally I'm hoping that they chose something that's a real fan favorite - like Boot Hill. What about you?

  1. Boot Hill is a real fan favorite? In what alternate dimension?

    Anyways, I'm 99% sure it will be Forgotten Realms, especially since that setting is getting an update.

    1. The Boot Hill thing was a joke. You know, ha, Ha, HA?

      Argh.

      Whatever.

      Yeah, the Forgotten Realms is the best bet but I still wonder if they're going to relaunch the Living Realms or what?

    2. We played Boot Hill once! Actually, we played poker with character sheets in front of us once, which I'm told was us playing Boot Hill. It wasn't as fun as playing an RPG that didn't involve playing poker nor was it as fun as playing poker for money without character sheets, but it was more fun than playing poker that wasn't for money without character sheets. So that's my Boot Hill review.

    3. Dang, we actually loved Boot Hill back in the day -- me, my brother, and one of our friends, mainly. I can't recall how we handled the referee role but we basically took the map of the town treated it like a dungeon, conquering business after business, renaming the bars and stuff, and making our characters sheriff and mayor. About that time we started reading up on gunfighters and bankrobbers and statting out the ones they missed in the book.
      Going to dig up the rules now...

  2. Well, according to Ed himself, Forgotten Realms is older than D&D. Forty seven years old, he says. Given that statement and the huge investment by the folks at Wizards of the Coast in new Forgotten Realms product, I would add another 1 percent to Dan's 99.

    1. There's not much chance as Jim has figured it out down below.

  3. With the new Tiamat/Dragons adventure (path?) rolling out with 5th, then I'm pretty sure they are going to hedge the vast majority of their effort into the Forgotten Realms. I'm okay with that, but I do hope they give some serious love to all the other settings as well. However, I won't worry about it, because I create my own stuff for the games I run. If, and that's a big if, the new Realms supplements really rock balls, then I may look into running a Realms game again. Will just have to wait and see.
