Unearthed Arcana and the Settings for December for Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition

Yesterday, June's Unearthed Arcana dropped, the Giant Soul Sorcerer. It's a strange one to me, builds on the Dragon Sorcerer. However, I ending up enjoying it's flavor.

And that got me thinking. Have the most recent UA's been a sneak peak into the two settings releasing in December from WotC?

Looking over UA, I see that we have had Circle of Spores Druid, Brute Fighter, and Invention Wizard in January.

In February we got rules for exploration with Into the Wild.

April gave us the Order Domain for Clerics.

Meanwhile in May we got the Centaur and Minotaur races.

Leading us to this month.

Can we gleam anything? Minotaur calls back to Dragonlance for me. Invention Wizard points to Eberron for me. Order Domain feels more like Planescape to me. And I could easily see the Centaur fitting Mystara. But, Into the Wild, Circle of Spores, Brute, and Giant Sorcerer...that feels like Greyhawk to me.

This is a shot in the dark, but I'm going to say the two settings are Greyhawk and Planescape. I say that because extra races would be good for Planescape and it's just a feeling I have.

What do you think?
