What I gather from Mearls stating FR is the default 5e setting is that the core books and setting-agnostic books will be geared toward being FR-compatible. Now, for the actual description of the world, map, NPCs and regional feats* we'll have to wait for a campaign setting.Wait, I thought FR was "baked in" to 5e.
I expect the core book to include the FR pantheon, or at least a few of them as examples. As for the adventure, I think it'd be safe to assume the setting info will be similar to that of the latest D&D Encounters adventures taking place in the Realms.Thanks. I wonder if the the core book will include the FR pantheon of Gods, and how much setting info will be in the Tyranny of Dragons modules?
That would be horrible. It would be as bad as 4E trying to shoehorn all the core book races into settings where they didn't exist before. Imagine if Dragonlance suddenly had to incorporate Shar or Lloth into its setting, or if Dark Sun were required to have... well... gods.One thing I wish they'd clear up and unify across all settings is the Pantheon. Whenever I got to make a new character in the Builder and I see ALL THOSE GODS it gets a bit silly. Especially when some of them are like
Bahamut (Forgotten Realms)
And they're both lawful good white dragons.
