One thing that has been tossed out there in aether (I haven't confirmed it yet, so if it has been, awesome) is that the new Campaign Setting Book is going to take into account all of the events of the previous Adventure Paths.
That's actually pretty dope. It gives the players a tangible effect on the world up to this point. I like that.
It's just nice to see something the characters did have an in-game effect.
Dragonlance and Forgotten Realms really didn't have this. It was always just explained through the novels and what have you and not through game-play.
That always bothered me.
But I do see what you're saying. The Adventure Paths (at least some of them) had some pretty open-ended endings. Doing it this way does sort of assume the players went the standard way with things but still, it's better than what happened to other settings.
