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

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 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.

Hi everyone, decided to join after lots of lurking from the shadow.
Started to play in Forgotten Realms when I was around 20 and loved it since then.
Now at the "wise" age of 45 I decided that wife and daughter must learn the beauty of ad&d and I think that Faerun is the best place to start learning.
Am a bit rusty maybe but I am sure that here I will find lots of suggestion to shine again, so to speak.
A wonderful day/night to everyone and all

Hi all.

Despite 30+ years of D&D Iím new to the Realm (shocking I know). Recently, however I became interested in a giant themed campaign and this led me to Ostoria. I started work on my ďAge of OstoriaĒ on another forum and someone there kindly recommended all you esteemed sages as people who could answer my many questions. Iíll start by lurking around the forums and website to learn what I can.

Hello, and Well met. I am a huge fan of The Forgotten realms though I am only really starting to get into it since I started with D&D 4e back in 2009. Now I am going to be playing Forgotten Realms in Tunnels and Trolls Deluxe Edition. I know heresy
Anthony Pacheco Posted - 22 Jan 2018 : 06:35:11
Hey there. Joined a few days ago.

I have a lot of favorite FR products. The old "The Moonsea" is one I particularly enjoy. It just as so much going for it. I've played lots of FR PC games over the years (Baldur's Gate and BGII, Pool of Radiance and sequels, Neverwinter Nights and NWN2).

The one FR game I DMed was actually a NWN2 custom game in a LAN room set in the Moonsea area stating in DR400 (insert ominous music here). I had to stop when i was spending more time writing pseudo C code then DMing.

At one point I was buying all the FR accessories, but I stopped at the "Time of Troubles." Didn't like ToT, and afterwards only purchased an occasional 3E FR module. I completely avoided 4E FR. I thought ToT was bad, LOL.

While my main (pen-and paper) campaign settings I ran as a DM were Greyhawk and then Role Yer Own, I always turned to my old FR source material for inspiration.

Best Regards,
Anthony (Griffon Lore Games)

Salutations, learned sages. After having silently perused the archives here at Candlekeep for some time, I have decided to finally sign up. I have been playing D&D for over 12 years, and I have to say that Forgotten Realms is one of my favorite settings. As such, this forum is a godsend.

Welcome to to forum, to all that have joined since the last time I posted.
Allowind Posted - 08 Dec 2017 : 05:27:55
Hello all! I'm an absolute beginner in D&D and a fun of the FR. I'm just discovering the 5e and hope to find a lot of interesting information on this forum.

Welcome Yslanderon, Thogrimm, and Cloudstepping. Hope you all enjoy your time here.
Cloudstepping Posted - 03 Dec 2017 : 18:36:29
Hello all. I'm a long-time D&D player (1979) but am just signing up to these forums. I currently play 5e, but my Realms are a big collection of material from the whole history of the setting, plus a few extra bits of my own. Hope to share some stories and ask a lot of questions. Thanks for maintaining these forums, I'm very interested in reading through.
Thogrimm Posted - 12 Nov 2017 : 03:58:21
Greeting!

Long time lurker, and now posting! Played and DM'd since before AD&D, and absolutely love the world that Ed and all have created in the Forgotten Realms. I was the first in our group to fall in love and buy everything with the FR logo on it! Have been away from the game since 3rd Edition, but very much enjoying 5e now.

I am playing in a game now, but am taking the opportunity to start writing, and looking forward to asking a lot of questions of the sages of Candlekeep!

Yslanderon Posted - 20 Oct 2017 : 21:30:12
Hello!

I've played some of the D&D games enough times to become really fond of FR.

I stumbled on this forums a few times when i was searching for especific knowledge regarding the setting. My knowledge of D&D in general is quite limited, since i came upon it by downloading and playing an old game named Neverwinter Nights, and not by playing the tabletop version with friends.

Thank you and may the shadow of the Lady never catchs us.
Alaundo Posted - 07 Sep 2017 : 08:59:12
Well met, minerodabahia.

Welcome to Candlekeep. Glad ye could join us in these halls of lore. I look forward to seeing thy creations and could possibly include such works within the Map Room.

Hello there!

FG is probably my favorite scenario, and also the one the I've most played with. Very honoured to be here.

I'm kinda skilled in cartography since I actually work with a related thing (hydrologic engeneer here), so I like to spend some of my free time making fantasy maps. Lately I've been workin in some specific regions from the Realms and it would be really nice if you guys could help me one waay or another.

Hope we can help each other! ^^

Well met, Rogue Bard

Glad ye have found this 'old school' place. Enjoy thy stay.
jcorbier Posted - 27 Jul 2017 : 09:59:00
Greetings,

I have been lurking on this forum for quite some time now, always seeking more Realms lore. Now that I have started DM'ing my own campaign I have plenty of unanswered questions and things I would like to clarify. So here I am ;)
Rogue Bard Posted - 25 Jun 2017 : 19:50:55
Greetings to you all. I've wandered in and out of here for years and I'm impressed that this forum is still going strong. I miss the old days when I was active in communities such as this one, so mayhap I will put this new account to good use. A brief intro: I've been playing D&D since my teens & I'm a longtime fan of BG1 & BG2 (I plan to download BGEE hopefully sometime next month) and NWN (I also have NWN2, but haven't gotten very far in it). I enjoy reading Forgotten Realms novels & learning all about the Realms (which is why I've kept coming back to this place), but I'm also into other fantasy as well, especially the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. That's pretty much it. May Lady Luck always smile upon you.
