Aren't all APs themed?
Council of Thieves was already similar to Crimson Throne, so I don't expect them to do another urban/political path that soon. I will admit an Absalom path would be cool in the future though.
I'm fairly certain the designers consider Jade Regent in the vein of runelords, considering it is sort of a sequel.
I for one am glad they are branching out to new areas. I'm sure that staff doesn't want to write the same AP over and over again as well too.
I don't think runelords is at all like jade regent, since one is an asian themed travel across the world and the other is a fairly standard (if extremely well-executed) big bad guy save the world ap.
I like branching out, but not every group wants to jump from kingdom sandbox to jungle travel to horror to asian travel to pirate sandbox. Maybe one or two more "normal" aps thrown somewhere in there.
