oooh Found a online text version of snippets from the Atlas, so I need to change my question...

does ... "The known Realms occupied a single land mass, sixty-five hundred miles north to south and eighty-five hundred miles east to west" ... this include Kara-Tur?

I think so, but bear in mind that they've changed the size pretty much each edition because, well, you know, magic.

Look at the first edition FR campaign setting. Its got a map of Faerun and a map of America above it for comparison. The below link should show it.

EDIT: removed the link, it didn't work... but google "America sourcebook of the realms" while on images. You'll see it.

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail

Senior Scribe coach,

I believe I have an answer for you. Though, I will state my assumptions from the onset so if anyone would like to dispute where I am getting my figures from, they may know.


Total square miles based on above assumptions: 21,254,642.

Best regards,
