12. Krypton?

It's funny: I've read all of the original run of Sandman but little has stuck with me whereas details on more average written works have.

Yes. In Sandman#48, though it's not explicitly named, you are informed that they were "somewhere a long way from here" (presumably Earth), with different constellations that match any seen from Earth. And if you look at their clothing and background:
https://comicvine.gamespot.com/a/uploads/original/8/85763/8077175-untitled.jpg

you can see that it is Krypton - compare with the crystalline depiction of that planet from Superman: The Movie:

and the headbands and capes worn by pre-Crisis Kryptonians:

And when you think about it, the location makes a lot of sense - of course Death and Destruction would be on a planet just as it is about to explode and take out most of its population.

Correct. Change an island for a planet, a sorcerer for a scientist, and a beast man (Caliban) for a robot (Robby), and you turn The Tempest into Forbidden Planet.

There's a brilliant musical stage play called Return to the Forbidden Planet that makes this even more obvious, mixing Shakespearance dialogue, the SF elements of the movie, and rock and roll music. Well worth checking out:

Crew on board their spaceship when the alarm briefly sounds, as it has detected the invisible and sometimes immaterial monster of the id. Crew checks, monster detected approaching, then alarm suddenly stops, no monster detected, then suddenly sounds again, monster; stops, no monster. Each time the alarm sounds, it gives beeps twice. So, is there are a monster or not?

"Two beeps, or not to beeps" queries the captain.
"That is the question." responds his subordinate.

2. What magical realm is the same general geographic shape as Florida?

From a very long-running series of fantasy novels.

The novels in question are humorous, with a heavy reliance on puns. People from the real world who visit this magical realm are said to come from Mundania.

3. On which world might you encounter Ged, a.k.a. Sparrowhawk?

5. If you cross the multiverse to the one true world you might be able to walk the Pattern. But what is the name of that one true world?

From a series of fantasy novels.

It'd be considered modern fantasy, as in some realities the characters visit you have cars and guns. The Pattern is at the end of the multiverse that represents Order; the other end is Chaos.

Loki wrote:

Loki wrote:

6. What planet are Crashlanders residents of?

From a series of SF stories, though only one novel in the series is set there iirc.

Humanity originally settled worlds using slower-than-light sleeper ships, sent to where probes had detected habitable planets. Trouble is, those probes were happy if they found even a tiny patch that was habitable on an otherwise utterly inhospitable planet, and colonists had no way to leave once they arrived, forcing them to find some way to survive on these unsuitable worlds. The original Crashlanders were called that because they literally crashlanded on their world; the world is a named with a three words phrase in ironic recognition that they survived to get there.

Kelewan is based on an east Asian template, while the world they invaded is much more standard Western fantasy-styled.

Already identified as Forbidden Planet.

3, 9 and 15 are correct. 10 is the right solar system but wrong planet.
3 Sparrowhawk is the lead character in A Wizard of Earthsea, and a main character in the subsequent novels. 
9 Klarn is the floating island where the elves of Weirdworld originate. 
15 Philip Jose Farmer's Riverworld series of novels, beginning with To Your Scattered Bodies Go, had the premise that all of humanity, everyone who had been born and died, finds themselves simultaneously resurrected, waking up in a giant valley along the side of a massive river, and trying to find out the who, why and how they were resurrected.

Nope, sorry. There were actually a good few Fantasy RPGs in the 1970s - apart from D&D, the major ones were Runequest, Chivalry and Sorcery, and Tunnels and Trolls - but the one in question predates all bar D&D.

Witch. I disagree with this concept for two reasons: There were plenty of good witches in popular culture when the game was introduced in 1983, and witches are tied to a real life religion (wiccan). Palladium's a good game but that's a serious flaw.

From tabletop rpg. Not sure it will help much, but it was a 1970s RPG, one of the very first after Dungeons and Dragons.

Originally self-published in 1974, then republished by TSR, the company responsible for D&D a year later. In 2005 Guardians of Order reprinted it.

The Pattern is at the end of the multiverse that represents Order; the other end is Chaos.

The kingdom/world in question had nine princes. The same author wrote Last Defender of Camelot and Damnation Alley, and was one of the founding writers of the Wild Cards series.

The first location visited in the Incomplete Enchanter stories. The travelers arrived in the middle of an historic event for this place, resulting in it being very, very cold.

I've already narrowed the Doctor Who story right down, as The Leisure Hive is the name of the story itself, so I'll give a clue based on the planet name. If the third Doctor told one of his companions where Supergirl was from, he might inadvertently name the planet of the Leisure Hive.

Loki wrote:

13. On which world did a human archaeological dig uncover the Shadows?

"The avalanche has already started. It is too late for the pebbles to vote."

From Babylon 5. It's also the name of an episode of the series.

Already identified as Forbidden Planet.

The planet shares the non-numerical part of its name with an assassin from Assassin's Creed who has one of the games in the series named after him.
