Anyone ever incorporate other settings as Realms in the overall Godbound cosmology?
The two that I've found that work best are Dark Sun (With the desert surrounding the Tyr Region eventually trailing off into the Uncreated Night), and a third-party setting made for the Dungeon World RPG called The Last Days of Anglekite (A dying world besieged by problems, including the Things From Outside, that are textbook examples of the Uncreated.)

I've long thought that Dark Sun would be a perfect already written setting.

Exalted in some ways could work as well, though more on the world and less on the exalted themselves.

Makes sense, and the Themed godbound types pretty much are the Exalted.

Ravenloft works well, I think.

Ooh. I could totally see Ravenloft. The whole territories manifesting out of the Mist is brilliant.

The setting for Shadow of the Demon Lord would make a good Godbound setting in my opinion. In SotDL, the continent-spanning Empire has just recently fallen to a coup led by orcish slave soldiers. While the Empire has yet to more or less dissolve as Arcem's Ancalia has done, it's well on its way. Demons in SotDL are similar to beings from the Uncreated Night - they dwell in the Void between worlds and constantly seek entry into the world. Indeed, the fall of the Empire could be interpreted as the Demon Lord's fell influence, eventually leading to ultimate destruction.

I had a weird idea that I've never tried involving Dragonlance, with a dash of Gods of the Fall. The Cataclysm is caused by the invasion of the Kingpriest and his clerics into the realms of the gods, which wrecks reality much like the wars in Godbound in many ways, among which is the fall of a shard of Heaven or something like it, smashing into Istar and transforming the continent.

Tying it to Godbound, Ansalon would be a realm of its own, bounded by Uncreated Night. Somewhere out there, the shattered remnants of the realms of the gods, or even the gods themselves might still be out there.

Oh, I can't believe this slipped my mind but Forgotten Realms during the Time of Troubles has been mentioned as a Godbound setting.
