Scottenkeinen runs an excellent blog. Let me go through some of the items on his list.
Scott Casper wrote:1. Aquaria (Mentzer)
We have a forum for that one here: viewforum.php?f=64
2. Arduin (Hargraves)
That is a classic. We need more talk of Arduin here.
3. Baldemar (alternate Middle Earth used in the GenCon IX Dungeons)
wasn't this one published as part of Gary Gygax' New Infinities Series
4. Barsoom (as part of the Greyhawk campaign; not for Warriors of Mars, which was not a RPG)
We have had some discussion here on whether Warriors of Mars could be considered an RPG setting as well...
5. Blackmoor (Arneson)(Temple of the Frog and the First Fantasy Campaign)
Forum for that here: viewforum.php?f=24
6. Edwyr - (Blacow) (co editor of TWH, author of the fourfold way classification of gamers)
Never heard of this one. Anyone know more about this one?
7. Forgotten Realms (Greenwood)
Forum for that here: viewforum.php?f=18
8. Fred's World (Funk)
Fred Funk was one of Dave Arneson's Players. There is additional information about his campaign world at the Comeback Inn: http://blackmoor.mystara.net/forums/vie ... =83&t=1074
9. Glorantha (Stafford)(initially more D&D-like?)
That is interesting. I know there is one halfling in Glorantha as a result of an early D&D campaign in that world...
10. Gorree - Mark Swanson (co editor of TWH)
11.Greenlands - Don Turnbull (frequent White Dwarf and Dragon contributor)
I know nothing about these two. Anyone?
12. Greyhawk (Gygax)(quasi-published as part of C&C's Great Kingdom uber-setting, as well as referred to and partially described in modules, magazines, and the core D&D rules themselves)
Greyhawk forum here: viewforum.php?f=11
13. Holmes Original Campaign (World of Caladan?) (Holmes)
I did not realize Holmes had an entire campaign world?
14. Kalibruhn (Kuntz)
*slaps forehead* I should have included this on my original list.
This should read Moldvay / Schick.
16. Lendore Isles (Lakofka)
Ah yes. Another setting later integrated into Greyhawk.
17. Middle Earth (often imitated, obliquely referenced in the original core rulebooks, and originally used by Bledsaw before Wilderlands)
18. Midkemia (Feist)
Yes, this one keeps being mentioned. Something I need to read up on.
19. Minaria (a board game, but with its own campaign setting easily used in D&D)
I know we have a thread on this somewhere on the Piazza.
20. "mythic Earth" (the real world with magic added to it, which many people essentially did and Chivalry & Sorcery officially did)
21. Perilous Lands (Snider)
Dave Arneson once said more than 30 people were running "Blackmoor" campaigns at one point. Richard Snider was one of Dave's most creative players (according to Dave) and I guess the Perilous Lands grew out of this one and developed into something even more sophisticated in the Powers & Perils RPG.
22. Rythlondar (VanDeGraaf and Scensny)
Should be a thread about that here somewhere.
23. Tekumel (Barker)(not D&D, but its rules are heavily influenced by D&D)
24. Toricandra (Jeff Grubb)
Edit: See Big Mac's separatate thread on that setting.
25. Trollworld (St. Andre)(not D&D, but its rules are heavily influenced by D&D)
As in Tunnels & Trolls?
26. Verbosh (Nevin and Faust)(separate setting published by JG)
Ah yes. I guess that was a separate world at first and then later integrated into the Wilderlands?
27. Warden (Ward)(not D&D, but it had cross-overs with D&D characters)
This is the Space Ship from Metamorphosis Alpha?
28. Wilderlands (Bledsaw)(all Judges Guild products)
Separate forum for that here: viewforum.php?f=54
