Yo, hype to me getting my first star after literally just talking about Out Of The Abyss for 3 years.

"Everything is a 'must read'" is the only correct answer here, AliMaClan! Best solution is to figure out exactly what you're interested in, and start a thread on it (or do a search to see if there is one already).


And The Cavalier, we're all friendly here! And passionate, as well.

....and a bit weird, too (pay no attention to the giant hamster over in the corner)



PattPlays Posted - 06 May 2020 : 23:01:10
I have got to say that this place has been my secret weapon for running my various modified OOTA runs.

Thank you scholars.

Hello all!

Been an avid collector of FR novels starting some years ago, with the whole quarantine I decided it was about time to dust off my novels and finally read through the collection. Also DMing a campaign based in Baldur's Gate, and am currently writing a piece of fiction/a love letter to the FR, so I'll likely be asking questions for both in the near future. Finally hope to encounter some friendly people here who share my passion for the setting!

See you all in the forums!

Hail and well met,
Having returned to the sunlit uplands of my youthful pursuits, I am searching for a suitable tome to begin my studies...

After a 35year hiatus from dungeoning and high fantasy, my son has become an avid D&D player and I have fallen under its spell again.
But where to begin in my study of lore?
I wonder if any kind and learned soul would direct me to the "must reads" section of the library?

I hope to stay on the forums for a little while. I've been looking for a place online a bit off the beaten path, where I could discuss roleplaying and such. Hope I found the right place!

I probably don't go as far back as some of the users here, but I've been interested in roleplaying games for close to 20 years now, and don't intend on stopping.



Welcome to Candlekeep. There are some really smart scribes in this community. Quite a few of them have over 40 years experience, so you have quite a historical perspective available. Enjoy your stay.

Good morning everyone, and well met.

Although originally from the land of the Sun (Greece) I currently reside in the UK for the last 7 years, and specifically in Scotland for the last 2. I have been an avid and active player since '89, when I was first introduced to the "Black Box" of D&D, and I still play 2nd edition Ad&d. I currently run two campaigns, o Forgotten Realm ones in Under Illefarn and a very very long running one, in the Lands of the Mists, Ravenloft, during the Grand Conjuction.

Although I have been through the Candlekeep forums previously, I never joined (no idea why), and since I totally distance myself from the social media in general, I just decided to come and say hello.

Quite excited to be here, I also realised that I misspelled Jander's name, so please be gentle! Thank you!





Welcome to Candlekeep. Your namesake made a cameo appearance in Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus. I have no idea how he left the Demiplane of Dread.

You'll find a great many people here who are awesome!

Well met

Welcome to Candlekeep. I hope ye enjoy thy stay herein amongst the many scrolls and tomes of lore.
The Scribe Posted - 14 Dec 2019 : 03:59:22
Hello, fellow knowledge seekers! I am a relatively nameless Scribe who has been recording his adventures, and have been working on a couple of semi-original story ideas based on the Forgotten Realms. Hopefully I'll be able to upload the ideas on here, and look forward to learning more about the ancient lore of the Sage of Shadowdale!

Well met, fellow seekers of knowledge!
I can't wait to uncover this library's lore and hopefully contribute my own someday. Safe travels, and never stop learning!

Back after a long adventure... Great to see that this place still exists

Hello all!
I have been a longtime reader of these forums, but I have never posted until now. I thought I would make an account to start engaging with the community.

:) Welcome Aez!
Aez Posted - 12 Jan 2019 : 19:48:00
Hey folks, longtime lurker over here. I'm a software developer in NYC by trade, but history is my first love and I try to bring that into all the games I'm in. It's splendid to have a place that actually cares about trying to trace the historical arc of this crazy world we all like to play in.

I've been working on a long research / homebrew project on Impiltur, trying to fill in the gaps on what I think is a fascinating and under-appreciated corner of the realms. Though my lore takes a bit of a different direction for Impiltur in some ways, I'd still love to share the maps and details I've been working on to try to give back to a place that I've learned so much from.

That said, I wasn't quite sure which section of the forums would be the best fit for this. I figure that Running the Realms is the right spot given that a portion of my work is homebrew, but I wanted to check with y'all first. Thanks!
Alaundo Posted - 24 Sep 2018 : 17:35:56
Well met, cpthero2

No matter, and thank ye for an interesting introduction indeed. Splendid, I'll certainly look forward to hearing of thy travels and discussions of lore in due course
cpthero2 Posted - 23 Sep 2018 : 23:36:40
Master Scribe Alaundo,

I realized, after taking note of Great Reader Ayrik's recommendation on 21 Sep 18 for me to create an introduction for myself, that I in fact never have done so. Yet, here I am at just over two years having an account, but I've never said hi, this is who I am. So, here goes...

I am a retired mechanized Infantryman, living in and from Spokane, WA. I use to run conventions for a living, and did bail enforcement for about (6) years after retirement. I attained my Bachelor's in Business Administration in Marketing, and followed that up with a Master's of Business Administration with a focus on Applied Economics/Marketing Research, and a Master's of Public Administration.

Currently, I am on the cusp of releasing (though the name and release date is still top secret) a podcast focusing on a deep dive into the lore of the Forgotten Realms. It's going to be a (2) hour podcast focusing discussing the lore, and then providing ideas for DM's and players on how to apply it. A significant amount of material will be aimed at politics, economics, government, legal systems, and more.

Thank you for making this site what it is, and being so welcoming.

Best regards,

Well met, Grimblade

Welcome again to Candlekeep, the greatest library in all the Realms! Enjoy thy stay herein.
Grimblade Posted - 08 Sep 2018 : 21:04:07
Well met all.

I had several different IDs before, and have just gotten a chance to return to the Realms as a DM. Glad to see the forum is still as active as I remember.
