Acutally I agree with you on pretty much all of those points.. I dont
really associate any of those things (regarding) with the D&D "system"

I've never understood why Forgotten Realms ever got so popular! I always
liked the D&D Gazetteer series for the Known World - and was once going to
run a TFT campaign there with different GM's taking different continents
and running them, but it fell threw...

I still think the Known World is one of the most vibrant and interesting
worlds any game companies ever done. I like it even better than Glorantha
or EPT.

so was wondering what people's expreience of them had been.

That reminds me - didnt someone start a project (maybe it was you? I just
used one of your encounter tables from this list..) do further populate the
"Lords" series on-line?
