Anyone know any more information on this book? It seems like a sourcebook for the Adventurer's League.

Bought my copy last night and did a quick skim through. Very nice! Now to make time for a thorough reading. :)

I photocopied all the articles and PDF-ed them long ago. Much easier to access that way.

I'll take them off of your hands.

I immediately downloaded it, and popped a copy onto my thumb drive so I could look at it at work... Sadly, though this is a slow work day, I've got other, more pressing priorities.

This was obviously many moons ago, before I was active here. I'd signed up, here, but I wasn't active until WotC banned me and I had just two options: sign up again under a different name and not acknowledge that my prior login had been banned, or call it off and just never post there again. I chose the latter.

At the time I was referring to, though, when the WotC person said they didn't need to ask us what we wanted -- at that time, the only questionable thing they'd done was ban discussions of novels in a rather heavy-handed fashion.

Even now, I'll question a lot of WotC's decisions, but I don't go for the all-out "WotC is evil!" or "Everything WotC touches turns to crap!" routine that some others do. I try to give them the benefit of the doubt.

Some is enough for me because I know it will be of excellent quality.

The Border Kingdoms: A Forgotten Realms Campaign Supplement

quote:
Welcome to the Border Kingdoms!

According to the sage Meriadas of Westgate: “The Border Kingdoms are the most favored destination for adventurers who want to proudly and boldly conquer a realm or establish their own new kingdom. Lords, counts, dukes, kings and emperors rise, proclaim themselves, and are swept away with the speed and regularity of waves crashing upon a shore.”

This fall Gamehole Con will be releasing original adventures set in the Border Kingdoms for the Adventurers League organized play program. To get the excitement going, we are sharing our campaign bible with you. It contains over 100 pages of lore about the Border Kingdoms and was written by Ed Greenwood, creator of the Forgotten Realms!

This product includes:

  • Over 100 pages of lore about the Border Kingdoms in PDF format

  • A high resolution map of the Border Kingdoms in PDF format

It is updated for the current timeline of the Realms and while some of the information is repeated, much is not. It also details several BK places that Ed never got to go to in the original article series and then later on the WotC website series.

That's one of the things I hate, series of articles stopping clearly way before their time. In my Realms notes there are more than a couple of series names with the references to the magazines numbers and then "why does it stop?!? [expletives]"



Long ago, before my banning from the WotC forums, I was participating in a discussion on web features. The general consensus was "they did X, Y, and Z, and they were all awesome, but then they dropped them and we'd like them back!"

That was when I commented that maybe WotC could do a poll or something and simply ask people what they wanted... And a WotC staffer came in and commented that they had no need to do that; they had their own ways of determining what we liked and wanted.

That one post made me lose a hell of a lot of respect for WotC.

Hello again, all!
Brimstone, I can tell you this much: Ed updated his Border Kingdoms write-ups to current Realms time (the 1490s DR) and completed them, A-Z, covering the entire BK in an overview that the GameholeCon adventure designers formatted into a handsome gazetteer that I hope will be available for sale at the DM's Guild eventually (proceeds to GameholeCon?)...
Ed crammed it full of adventure hooks, subplots, and the like.

And I believe Alex Kammer, the master gamer who runs GameholeCon, collaborated with Ed on an uberplot to underpin the GameholeCon Adventurers League adventures at this year's con, and for several years into the future. Alex came up to Canada a month or so back to spend a few days at Ed's house cooking up things.

(Ed's also at work on other things in the Realms, including his own annual Mirt story-and-lore plus companion adventure. He held a TEGG contest, and the winner, Clinton Cronk, has designed an Ormpur adventure that should go up at the Guild eventually. I'm hoping Ed will follow through on his plans to write "Volo mini-guides" for all the locales Mirt visits, too...)

Another reply tomorrow, I hope (have ferried everything to Ed for lore replies)...

Love to all,
THO

Let's see, there were articles, there was something (from these articles or not?) in Power of Faerūn...

Ed Greenwood authored the supplement below, updating the lore for the Border Kingdoms, for the new AL content that will be released at Gamehole Con. I know Alan Patrick is meeting with WotC to see if they can publish it on the Dungeon Masters Guild.


I asked THO about it on the current Ask Ed Scroll...
sleyvas Posted - 01 May 2018 : 21:24:14
What makes you say its by Ed? Just curious.
Wooly Rupert Posted - 01 May 2018 : 19:25:51
I saw something about his intention to put it on the DM's Guild.
