During the quarantine, I basically took every FR novel and short story and chronologically spliced them together into a gigantic multi-volume ebook. I've been reading through these volumes and it's such an amazing experience. Way more immersive than just reading one particular series and stopping there. It's like you're following the history of this massive world. You see all these little corners of the setting. You have big epic stuff followed by really intimate stories. You see someone from a minor short story 1000 pages ago lead a full novel. My favorite part was reading these little snippets following fan favorite characters like Artemis, years before they take a central role. Another good part is "discovering" stories by relatively unknown authors that are just as good as the more popular stuff. I thought this would be a good way to get into the Realms before BG3's release and it's really made the setting into a interconnected, living world.

Has anyone else tried this? What was your favorite part? Did you stumble across an obscure story that was actually amazing?

For reference, I used a combination of the Mythbank list and Ed Greenwood's official list from 2000.
