Well met

The Candlekeep Compendium is a project undertaken by a selected number of scribes of Candlekeep.

Each volume contains a collection of Realmslore articles penned by the scribes, on a variety of Realms-related subjects. Many months of hard work have gone into the articles contained within each issue. Some articles are unique to each volume, whilst others are an installment of regular columns to appear over many issues. Periodically, special themed volumes will be released, focusing on an particular aspect of the Realms.

Many thanks to all who have joined this project and worked to produce this collection of lore. The Compendium staff are as follows (in alphabetical order):

Alaundo
Matthew Bowman
Pierre Godbout
Bob Grant
Jaap-Peter Hazelhoff
Chris Jameson
George Krashos
Scott Kujawa
Alex Leighton
Kevin Liss
Jamey Martin
Michael Mueller
Lee J Nelson
Daniel Rosenquist
Bradley Russo
Yack Tundra


We hope ye enjoy the Compendium. Any feedback is appreciated, please post comments in this topic.

I have recently joined Candlekeep, I am still in the process of beginning to learn the lore of Faerun, and I have been enjoying reading the old Compendiums

Thank you for all the hard work that went into creating these compendiums. I am hoping that the release of 5th edition will create a resurgence of fan writing like this.

Hi there!

I just want to say I truly enjoyed reading the compendiums.

I'm also interested in the idea of new ones being created. I have one question though, would it still be for 3rd edition or would it be for 4th?

Thanks again!

Mark

One of my personal faves among Compendium articles was the introduction and description of an entirely new subrace of gnolls. The article started with a bit of canon, and then spun an entirely non-canon but quite nifty race out of that.
dazzlerdal Posted - 06 Nov 2013 : 08:40:50
Well i was thinking of submitting an article on one or more of the evil humanoid races of the realms (i realise i would probably be stepping on many peoples toes as it's their favoured subject but a collaborative effort would be a good thing i think if anyone is interested), dealing with possible origins, history, personality, society etc.

For instance mountain orcs or hobgoblins, and then focus on the differences between say mountain orcs in the spine of the world and mountain orcs in Thar.

I'm just a bit unsure as to how much it has to be canon. If i phrased the non canon bits as speculation or sagely investigations (which could then be due to the unreliable narrator) would that be okay?

This is great news.

Well met, dazzlerdal

Indeed, the Candlekeep Compendium will make a return and hopefully gather momentum again.

Generally, the staff of the Compendium produce regular articles for each volume, but we do have new members of submissions. Feel free to email me with your ideas or submission.

The format/font etc. matters not, as the editors address this aspect. As to editions/locations etc, we sometimes have a theme and initial round of suggestions and approvals, but so long as it's Forgotten Realms, then you can't go far wrong!

I was wondering a few things about the candlekeep compendium.

Firstly will there be another one.

Secondly can anyone submit articles for the compendium

Thirdly, if anyone can submit articles are there any rules about submission such as a specific font, format, layout, areas of interest, areas to avoid, editions/era specific lore.

I was only wondering because I love this site and the compendium was one of the things I looked forward to each year, and if there is anything I can do to help speed things along I will gladly offer my services.

Plus I have a few ideas for articles that would make my decade if they ever found their way into a future compendium.

Well met

Aye, it's possible, silverwolfer However, I'd say the most we would go to would be to download a year's volumes (i.e. four) in one file. I'll look into flagging required volumes as part of Candlekeep v2.0 however...it would actually be quite useful overall to select individual articles and downloads throughout the site.

Well met

Aye, Alisttair. Once i've cleared a few things up regarding our standing with the Compendium, and secured a few things, then i'll be in touch and reinstate the Compendium chamber for the scribes involved



sounds good Alaundo

Exciting!
Alaundo Posted - 28 Jul 2011 : 10:53:19
Well met

Aye, a splendid set of volumes of lore. Work had commenced for Volume X, but as The Sage stated, various reasons halted it's production.

However... I am unlocking the door, blowing off the dust and looking at recommencing this as part of Candlekeep v2. After recent discussions and work picking up again, watch this space...Candlekeep will be changing, mark my words

Thx Rupert - it looks great but why did this creative work stop in 2007?

Lack of contributions, mostly. Also, several regularly contributing scribes, such as myself, often found ourselves with less and less time to devote to such projects.

Then, finally, with the coming of 4e in 2008 and the restructuring of Wizards' Open Gaming License, it became somewhat precarious for fan sites, such as Candlekeep.com, to continue publishing fan-based sources without an official mandate to utilise such Intellectual Property from the license-holder.

Couple these kinds of problems/issues together, and we're still largely in a kind of limbo about how to proceed with the Compendium.
