Well met, fellow seekers of knowledge!
I can't wait to uncover this library's lore and hopefully contribute my own someday. Safe travels, and never stop learning!

...and that's why I'm banned from Mechanus.

Hello, fellow knowledge seekers! I am a relatively nameless Scribe who has been recording his adventures, and have been working on a couple of semi-original story ideas based on the Forgotten Realms. Hopefully I'll be able to upload the ideas on here, and look forward to learning more about the ancient lore of the Sage of Shadowdale!

Good morning everyone, and well met.

Although originally from the land of the Sun (Greece) I currently reside in the UK for the last 7 years, and specifically in Scotland for the last 2. I have been an avid and active player since '89, when I was first introduced to the "Black Box" of D&D, and I still play 2nd edition Ad&d. I currently run two campaigns, o Forgotten Realm ones in Under Illefarn and a very very long running one, in the Lands of the Mists, Ravenloft, during the Grand Conjuction.

Although I have been through the Candlekeep forums previously, I never joined (no idea why), and since I totally distance myself from the social media in general, I just decided to come and say hello.

Quite excited to be here, I also realised that I misspelled Jander's name, so please be gentle! Thank you!

Welcome to Candlekeep. Your namesake made a cameo appearance in Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus. I have no idea how he left the Demiplane of Dread.

Hello, everybody!

I hope to stay on the forums for a little while. I've been looking for a place online a bit off the beaten path, where I could discuss roleplaying and such. Hope I found the right place!

I probably don't go as far back as some of the users here, but I've been interested in roleplaying games for close to 20 years now, and don't intend on stopping.

Welcome to Candlekeep. There are some really smart scribes in this community. Quite a few of them have over 40 years experience, so you have quite a historical perspective available. Enjoy your stay.

Hail and well met,
Having returned to the sunlit uplands of my youthful pursuits, I am searching for a suitable tome to begin my studies...

After a 35year hiatus from dungeoning and high fantasy, my son has become an avid D&D player and I have fallen under its spell again.
But where to begin in my study of lore?
I wonder if any kind and learned soul would direct me to the "must reads" section of the library?

Exiled from the realms for 35 years on a quest for the lost chord. I return empty handed to resume my studies...

Hello all!

Been an avid collector of FR novels starting some years ago, with the whole quarantine I decided it was about time to dust off my novels and finally read through the collection. Also DMing a campaign based in Baldur's Gate, and am currently writing a piece of fiction/a love letter to the FR, so I'll likely be asking questions for both in the near future. Finally hope to encounter some friendly people here who share my passion for the setting!

See you all in the forums!

If there's anything I've learned as a DM, it's never give the players access to a Wish spell in the first session.

I have got to say that this place has been my secret weapon for running my various modified OOTA runs.

Thank you scholars.

"Everything is a 'must read'" is the only correct answer here, AliMaClan! Best solution is to figure out exactly what you're interested in, and start a thread on it (or do a search to see if there is one already).


And The Cavalier, we're all friendly here! And passionate, as well.

....and a bit weird, too (pay no attention to the giant hamster over in the corner)

Greetings all!

Started my Dungeons and Dragons journey back in 2nd edition AD&D and have been playing and proselytizing ever since. I've mostly done my own homebrew campaigns, but over the past few years I've started gravitating more and more to running sessions set in the Forgotten Realms and I have found this forum a great resource. I still have so many burning questions about the realms, like "where do souls come from?" and the best leads I've got have always come from the scribes of Candlekeep. So I decided to stop lurking and join in the fun!

Hello, everyone. Like Wendolyn above me, I'm not new to running games, but I'm just starting to run my games in this world. I've always been a big fan of the Baldur's Gate games, and I'm looking forward to learning more about the Forgotten Realms.

Hello! Greetings from Spain. Sorry because my English isn't full.
I have read the FR novels in Spanish, but not all are translated so I start to read the novels in English. I hope I can learn more in this forum.

Don't worry about your English. It's a sad truth that a lot of folks that speak English as a native tongue still can't speak it well.

(and even fewer have anything even approaching fluency in another language)

Hello everyone! I am amazed by the erudition of the sages here, and the level of attention given to the most minute details, to make the Realms feel like a lived place. I look forward to having all my strangest questions answered in ways that will certainly lead to more!

Welcome welcome, Athreeren! The best bit of advice I can offer is, if you ask a question (strange or otherwise!) and don't happen to get any reply;

ask another!
