A 5th Edition player who has played some previous editions of D&D heard me talking about the upcoming Midgard Campaign Setting and Player's Book Kickstarter for 5e. He asked me, "Which D&D setting is Midgard closest to, and why?" I'm afraid I don't know as much about settings such as Mystara, Greyhawk, and the Realms as I'd like, so I hope to get some answers on here.
Tim Baker wrote:Out of the settings I have the most knowledge of, I would say that Midgard is closest in tone to Nentir Vale's "Points of Light" feeling. The world is a dark place, with pockets of light, and heroes can make a big difference in turning the tide. It's heroic fantasy with a lot of danger in areas outside of populated areas. It's far from a perfect analogy, but it's the closest I have. Are other settings an even better comparison?

It's also a nordic thing, so it will have stuff in common with HR1 Vikings Campaign Sourcebook.
Tim Baker wrote:Perhaps it would help if someone was able to summarize how Mystara, the Realms, and Greyhawk are different, ignoring the Hollow World for now (which is clearly one significant difference). Since I'm already familiar with Midgard, if there was a certain flavor that each of those D&D captured best, I might be able to align Midgard (or perhaps only portions of Midgard) to one more than the others.
