I know there are more but that as many as i could fit. And for D&D that includes all D&D games like NWN, BG ect.....

Mines probably SW.

Mine would be R.E. Feists world of Midkemia (and the rest of the Riftwar setting). I think that is the best, living fantasy world there is, almost as good as SW. The reason I didn't vote SW is that SW IMO is SciFi instead of Fantasy, but anyway...

I don't think he meant to do that kind of distinction.

You still left out the WoD and the Post Nuclear waste of Fallout.

From the list, I supported Warcraft. Which has a lot based on DnD anyway, however I enjoy it more than FR and other worlds of DnD (expect for Planescape setting) because they portary each races in a more balanced way, rather than "this race is evil, this race is not evil, and this is netual".

The Orc's tribal background its well "blended", and the Night Elves are really well done, shame about the ears seems more like rabbits ears.

I could not pick Middle Earth because its the grandfather of DnD and many fantasy settings, stories, its too great to be amoug all these on the list. Also, I think ME is real, not just a fantasy...

EDIT: Actually I dont know what I am talking about, I am sure undead is evil, but I hope you get my meaning that, other races are not too extream interms of good and evil, such as in NWN and some other DnD games.

I like Concrete Kingsom. It is my own homebrew sci fi/fantasy that I use d20 Modern as the rule base for.

No specific world wins by a wide margin, but I've been redeveloping my teenage love of Shadowrun recently (found a huge stack of sourcebooks in a back room), so I'll go with that.

Assuming that Warhammer covers both the Fantasy and the Sci-Fi setting, it's definitely my favourite. Makes Fallout look like a walk in the rose garden by comparison :p

Any preference of 40K or Fantasy? Or just both combined?

As a universe, I prefer 40k, as a gaming system I prefer Fantasy, especially Mordheim.

My Fav: 7th Sea by AEG.

Awesome Age of Sail with Sorcery and lost civilizations setting. :thumbsup:

Honorable mentions:

Warhammer (nice gritter middle ages setting without all the "fluff" you find in DnD/Middle Earth)

Legend of the Five Rings (nice feudal Japanese style game with magic) Used to be my fav but I feel I've outgrown it.

TORG (The FIRST MultiGenre RPG... I love Multigenre)

Fading Suns - just about every genre or type of story fits into Fading Suns. I like broad settings that allow for a ton of different moods and character backgrounds. A little Star Wars, a little Dune, a little Medieval Europe.

Easily Arda wherein lies middle-earth. This has more to do with the fact that I know more about it than any other. D&D as far as a "world" is non existant. It is a rule set. Unless you mean Greyhawk, Forgotten Realms, etc... Star Wars is a given for any geek.

Planescape, Fallout, Shadowrun, and Arcanum are all very interesting settings I would love to see used in more crpgs.

Also the world of the Thief series was very well done. Sort of a dark medieval steampunkish camelot. Theres this whole nature vs. technology scene going on. And a secret brotherhood trying to mantain the balance of power.

I prefer the post apocalyptic setting. There's something about helping civilization after a huge world destroying war that's intriguing to me. Also, I love the possibility of being able to explore the ruins of long forgotten cities, where I can actually recognize the items I find. As a bonus, I prefer games with real weapons. I've always preferred an AK-47 over a longsword +3.

My favourite RPG of all time is probably Wasteland, just so you know it.

Would of never guessed with your avatar.:ermm:

d&d just because I grew up with it and still enjoy it to this day, so itís my favorite setting in whatever form. But, really I like many worlds/campaigns.

hmm .. based on the book(s) of Miyamoto Musashi?? (The book of Five Rings)

I like post apocalyptic as well .. but for a very twisted, and very disturbing, reason I won't reveal! :)

You've always wanted to wear worn leather pants with the buttocks cut out?



The Fantasy world just in general would be Tolkiens Middle-Earth, but for CRPGs I prefer modern, present-day settings.
