The Forgotten Realms
have been around for ages. They were originally devised, as I recall, in the early 1970
s by Ed Greenwood
, before D&D
appeared on the scene. It appeared in Ed's articles in Dragon Magazine
obtained the rights and began publishing separate Realms products. Steven E Schend
, Eric L Boyd
and various other talented writers have helped make the Realms what they are.
Features of the Realms include:
, noted archmage
, the renegade drow ranger
, and his magical panther
, the fearsome drow city from which he fled.
, home to Khelben
, as well as to numerous other famous characters.
The fallen city of Myth Drannor
, now infested with demons
s and portal
s which allow those in the know to travel great distances at speed
, the Nameless
bard who slew Moander
and became a god
The city of Baldur's Gate
, home to the computer game of the same name, although, to be fair, it's a whole lot more interesting than the CRPG allows.
This is part of my idea to node AD&D worlds, and will be updated whenever I think of something good to put in.
