You DO know that LOTR was one of the EARLIEST fantasy settings EVAR ?

ALMOST EVERYTHING from there is derived from LOTR … Well, not all, but very, very much.

Other early fantasy settings are Narnia, Prydain, etc …

Everything after that is just considered rather "secondary" - even D&D comes from LOTR.

But of course, there have been other settings as well … By Piers Anthony, for example …


And, besides, if you want to learn about a DIFFERENT fantasy setting for an RPG, then read this here … http://www.rpgwatch.com/forums/showp…6&postcount=83

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
