Hi, I'm no stranger to Wotc fiction, as my username will tell you. I got into the Realms via R.A. Salvatore's Dark Elf Trilogy. Since then I have read his series, as well as the works of Kemp, and the YORD, Haunted Lands, and the three Brotherhood of the Griffin novels by Byers.

I look forward to joining in discussion about the changes to, and flavor of, the Realms. :)

Greetings! Name's Seabus Mythforger - mage, wanderer, dwarf-friend and sage. I came upon the Realms like most o' ye with the tales of Drizzt Do'Urden and the Heroes o' Icewind Dale. Unfortunately, I only discovered the Realms this past winter, tho in the last several months I've devoured enough Realmslore to set most o' yer heads spinning on yer shoulders...almost fifty tomes worth!

Tho I'm still partial to the tales o' Drizzt and friends, I've vastly expanded my knowledge of the Realms. Some o' me favorites tho include The House of Serpents, The Year of Rogue Dragons, The Cleric Quintet, Elminster stories and The War of the Spider Queen. Me favorite characters include the mighty King Bruenor Battlehammer and his friend Rumblebelly, Harkle Harpell, the Bouldershoulder "brudders", Jarlaxle Baenre and of course the powerful Elminster.

I come to ye hallowed halls o' Candlekeep to share in good conversation and better ale that I may expand my love o' Forgotten Realms with like-minded folk who share me heart with tales of sword, sorcery and adventure. Well Met!

~Seabus Mythforger,
Renegade Mage

Greetings, I am Rhune Moonglow, cleric and mage formerly in the service of the Mother of All Magic.

It's been quite a long time since I've ventured into the realm of online forums. I admit, I've been away from Dungeons and Dragons since 3rd edition arrived, I just wasn't able to commit myself to a new ruleset. I have no opinions on 3rd, 4th, etc since I've never had a hand in playing them.

I found these boards quite by accident really. About a day before the forums went down with the server issues, I was thinking about an old friend I knew from a previous board I posted at called the db-forge. Back then, I had left those boards out of the blue as life was throwing a lot of wrenches at me. As a result, I lost contact with a lot of the posters I had befriended.

On a whim, prior to signing up to Candlekeep, I hit up google and I found my old friend, Rynonalyrna Fathomlin, posted here. However, I noticed that she hadn't posted in 2 years so I doubt the only way she'll get my PM is if she logs in again someday. I had tried to send her an email, but I believe I need a certain post count to use that function. Does anyone know the required number of posts needed for use of that?

In the meantime, however, I've enjoyed lurking about for a week or so, reading the plethora of material listed here. There was a time I knew a bunch about the Realms--my, how quickly things can change.

Welcome to Candlekeep, rhune.

I've read many posts by Rynonalyma, and her post count vastly outranks mine on the Candlekeep scoreboard members list, so she was indeed a very actively prolific scribe during her tenure. I'm not sure why you cannot send her emails, you should be able to click on the link provided in her profile, assuming the email account she provided is still active. If it matters, I think the post count breakpoints for earning rank and status here are 15/75/350/1000/2000/10000, I'm starting the rumour that you get a free Lamborghini at 10000+ posts, but otherwise I don't think you gain any tangible rewards through posting at this forum because you should have access to all functions the moment you complete registration to gain admission.

Candlekeep is dedicated to the Realms, regardless whether you just play D&D or just read the novels or just want to discuss/learn anything even peripherally related to Realmslore. The keep officially maintains an "edition neutral" stance since many scribes and visitors do indeed have a slight tendency to argue vehemently about why they most profoundly love/hate particular D&D rules editions (and the changes wrought by such rules upon the Realms) ... and such converse does not well suit the purposes to which these forums of Realmslore are dedicated. Many FR authors and D&D game designers are regular visitors to the keep and (when not being cantankerous old grumbles) are more than happy to answer questions or provide insights about the Realms or about their writings.

Thanks, Ayrik, good to be here.

Yeah, I had tried the email option on her profile before the PM route, but when I tried to send I got a message that said I didn't have enough posts to use the email function yet. I'll try again once I get some posting under my belt.

I called the Realms home for quite a few years, great place, never a shortage of history and lore. I hope someday to dust off my 2nd edition material and let the dice start rolling again.

I'll have to check out all the new novels that have come out since 2000 or so. I've been bitten by the fantasy bug yet again and those old urges are coming back to me.

Ah, well if it's post count (and free Lamborghini!) you're after then you should offer your submissions in other wings of Candlekeep's vast library. Submissions in this Welcome to Candlekeep section do not apply towards post countings; you'll note that (at the time of this writing) you have still a total of 0 posts, sorry.

I, too, have a strong preference for 2E rules. Although 1E is pretty much the same thing overall (assuming you can read High Gygaxian) and 3E and 3.5E do offer many merits which have wavered my resolve. You'll find many 2E grognards here, although most of us have learned to be somewhat politic (and, I admit, actually not all that much concerned) with issues involving more recent D&D editions/settings.

Thanks, Joran, good to be here.

And thanks Ayrik, I wouldn't even have noticed the post count doesn't apply in this section if you didn't mention it.

Greetings and salutations to you seekers of knowledge, I am Grimn Argador, scribe and wizard of Thay. I hope to learn much during my time in this 'Candlekeep', and look forward to conversing of the realms with the many learned personas I hope to meet here, as I have only ever heard good things of this place, and its wealth of knowledge. Though' I hope no one minds that I brought my pet stirge with me, his name is Orcus. I was hoping to bring a couple of pets with me to keep me company during my stay, but I was robbed while sleeping next to the road, and most of my more exotic pets where stolen.

Hello gentles. I am Sousana, previously known here as Sousinne. Alas, with forgotten passwords, names must change. I consider myself somewhat versed in Realmslore, but since I feel most at home in 2nd edition, there is today a distance that has grown to the setting. With the Spellplague, I have finally decided that not every change needs be canon, even from the official line.

I have a tressym at home, and I work at the behest of Mystra to counter the presence of Cyric in the world.

Greetings Scribes,

It takes a hearty adventurer to brave the burning heat, blinding dust, and biting flora and fauna found in the desert I hail from. I am a simple adventurer looking for knowledge, legend, and lore and will gladly share my own knowledge.

Good Hunting,
The Wolfhound

Hello all! I'm Dustin and I'm new to the forums. I will admit I joined mostly in the hopes of increasing my involvement in the Maztica Alive ebooks, which have used a map I made a few years ago. I've downloaded a few of the Compendiums however, and I love the work you sages have done. Thanks for having me!

Hi I've only posted a couple times so far...but it is nice to have a place to go to discuss all things Realmsian. Others perspectives are very interesting.
