Well met!

Having been an avid reader for many years in the 90's I seem to have lost my way a bit since getting married and having kids....

So here I am, ready to once again pick up the quill and get up to date with i've missed for the last 10 years.

I look forward to participating in the forums and becoming a part of the community.

Greetings, all.

I am a long-time FR addict, ever since I pulled a freshly-stocked first copy of Darkwalker on Moonshae from the bookstore shelf over 20 years ago. My beard is greyer (literally), my eyes are squintier, and my shelves creak dangerously under the weight of decades of collecting the tales and tomes of Faerun, but the Realms have never lost their wonder for me.

It is an honor to be among you.

Well met,

It's been a long time since I've shown my face around this site. The old WotC boards have just undergone a radical change, and I fear I'll not return there again. I had been drifting away from there, though.

I started thumbing through my old 3.5 books(not gonna upgrade, hate the new Realms), book I haven't touched in years. Started getting the memories and lore pouring back, and I had to duck back in to Candlekeep. Dunno how long I'll stay, but maybe it'll be for old times' sake.

Right...

Ok, you two behave around here...

"These things also I have observed: that knowledge of our world is
to be nurtured like a precious flower, for it is the most precious
thing we have. Wherefore guard the word written and heed
words unwritten and set them down ere they fade . . . Learn
then, well, the arts of reading, writing, and listening true, and they
will lead you to the greatest art of all: understanding."

Hail and well met! I fell in love with the Realms when I got my hands on the old grey-box, it seems so long ago. I tryed and tryed to get into Greyhawk but for some reason I could not get into it. Then along came the Forgotten Realms and I was hooked on it. It felt so easy going, it just clicked with me I guess. The fun I had running my realms because I took Mr.Greenwoods words to heart. I took what he gave me and I made it my own. A few years later and the 2nd edition came along and the Time of Troubles and the 2nd edition Forgotten Realms box set. Things had changed and I grumbled a little and the power creep was starting, but it was the realms. Time passes and I sold the old grey-box and left AD&D all together. More time goes by and I come back to 2nd edition for a few years and then along comes 3rd edition. Power creep on steroids but as the DM I could control the power creep some what and hey Bane was back. Then 3.5 but that was ok, I could still work with it. Then comes 4th edition and I hear somethings I dont like. This time I keep my wallet closed because I want to see if what I heard is true. I go to Books a Million and sit down and look at 4th edition Forgotton Realms. They had killed off so many friends. I will not go point by point of what I do not like about it here but the cover may have said Forgotton Realms but to me that was it, I stoped at 3.5. Then as luck would have it I came across a mint condition old grey-box! and having already gotton my hands on 3 sets of 1st edition AD&D rule books. It got even better as I was able to then get FR 1 to FR 16 and Under Illefarn. I went back to my first love and soon my wife will be playing in a Forgotton Realms campaign. It will have a start date of 1st day of Mirtul 1357DR The Year of the Prince. As I read and get things ready I can almost feel the joy Mr.Greenwood must have had as he worked on this set and Mr.Grubb as well. I dont know where 1st edition Realms fits in at here but I hope I will not be ran off. I cant help but believe that the old grey-box has a special place in Mr.Greenwoods heart. Till later my new found friends.

Well met. I'm originally from Menzoberranzan, however, I faked my death and let Triel take over. This allows me more time to travel the Realms. I just returned from Thay, where I was watching the Szass Tam drama unfold. Good times!

Unless they ask you to, of course...

I actually DO know everything. I just have a very poor index of my knowledge.

Well, I've been creeping around for a day or two, and I'm glad to be here. I started in the Realms back in high school, when a friend introduced me to Drizzt. (Yes, I know that's probably a cheesy, cliche way of getting here, but, hey, I love the dark-skinned guy...) It seems like ages ago- wait it WAS. I've been happily traipsing around in the Realms with El, Drizzt, Liriel, and many others ever since. I do not game in Fearun, but i do use its lore and materials heavily as inspirations in my home-brew world, long with aspects of several other worlds (mostly Krynn, eberron, and Council of Wyrms).

Looking back, I'd say that I mostly loved the many changes in the Realms, except the recent 4th ed stuff and the Lady Penitant. I was actually angry at the death of Eilistraee, as she is my favorite Realms deity, besides Mystra and Kelemvor. I'm stopping at 3.5, like many others, it seems- but i will continue to follow my favorite characters, at least those who are still around....

The Sellplague began, for all intents and purposes, in the dominions of the Corporation. Greed murdered Good Design, unraveling common sense in the cosmos and destroying her dominion. At the same time, Sales Fears and Warcraft Envy happened into alignment. This cataclysmic coincidence led to upheaval, shaking apart the primeval order, opening up holes in wallets, and reshaping everything...
