Well, after a long break, I finally have an opportunity to come back to this somewhat antiquitated (sp?) project. I sadly note nobody has leapt up to continue it on in my stead.
So, here is a *minor update* according to Dart Ambermoon and some recent developments in the novel line. I'm still aiming, as per Elaine Cunningham's and (I think) the Hooded One's ideas, to have this list fully completed (or at least every book completed) and then turned into a flash/java/etc map of novels in Faerun. It's ambitious, and I'm sure many of you have more experience than I have, considering I have nigh on zero experience (or skill points invested in 'Computer Programming' lol). Please, anyone, feel free to step in and help this project grow strong again.

I thought I'd update Son of Thunder with some more specifics: The Fallen Lands, Morgur's Mound, Candlekeep (each only briefly), Llorkh, Grunwald, Rauvin Vale, Newfort, and the High Forest (especially Grandfather Tree, the Fountains of Memory, Unicorn Run, The Star Mounts). Lot of overland travel in this one!

Excellent. Thanks, Murray. I was actually meaning to give this thread a nudge before some of the latest releases slip off the list. Good timing

some corrections here

1) Streams of Silver plays in Luskan too (where do you think they were between Icewind Dale and the Evermors ). And in fact it does not play IN Silverymoon but just outside so you might need to include Nesme too. The Tower of Twilight, Longsaddle, The Herald's Holdfast and "The Ruins" are visited too

2) the Halfling's Gem starts out in Mithril Hall iirc, they never visit Luskan in that book but go to Waterdeep first instead

3) only minor parts of The Legacy take part in Menzoberranzan, the main parts take place in Mithril Hall and the Underdark below Mithril Hall

*Update*
Well, in keeping with my extremely sporadic updates, I have filled in a lot of information given by posters above - my many thanks. There is, as always, one list per thread page, above, where you can read all the updates and old information. Correct me where necessary and add where you can, especially ye of great interest in realms locales.
I'm still looking for people to potentially take over this project from me, if you're interested.

Again, great work, Smyther and I hoped that ye would be able to continue with this project However, if thou art still unable to devote much time to this, then mayhaps Xysma would like to pick this up. He has already sent me a splendid scroll on this very subject

I can't specifically take over... but I'm willing to assist who ever decides to fill Smyther's position for this... For which ever scribe it is... contact me by PM and we'll discuss it.

I'm now working on this list. But I make possible to know what novel one have to read if he wants to learn about such an area.
As usual, I do not know if I'm clear enough, so...
Example :
"I want to learn about the city of Lallor, What novel should I read ?
- Murder in Halruaa of course !"

AS I did in my list about inns and taverns, the list will be updated in the first post of the thread I will open. Maybe it will be useful enough to be sticked !
Just let me few hours to change the Smyther's list above and tell me what you think about it please.

EDIT :
That's done : http://forum.candlekeep.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=9874

"Today is a good day to smile",
Fillow Big'n'Book Mahlemiut 'Lead-dog', Son of Garl, Wanderer of the Masked Leaf and Namer of Oghma.

- Fight in the arena and have fun ! :
La brute.com
- Feel free to take part to these projects : Post-Spellplague bibliography ; 4E index project ; Taverns and inns of the Realms ; Dogs of the Realms ; Descriptions of places in the novels ; forums, RPG, FR Abbreviations and Acronyms
- Come and have a look at the already asked questions from the Forgotten Realms Trivia Challenge

I am a French FR fan, so please forgive my lapses in English language and do not hesitate to correct me. Thanks a lot.

It just so happens that I have picked this project up. So far I have a working Access database including all titles (novels, comics, anthologies, dragon, everything I have in my guide). I have built a query for each author that returns all of their works. I have also built queries for each location that is linked to a novel or short story, just click on the location you are interested in and you get a list of all the titles the location is featured in. I've still got alot of work to do, but it's off to a good start, the database is as complete as my guide as of now (as far as title, location and author, I haven't tackled year or sysnopsis yet).
The only drawback is that I am using Access 2007 and can't share it in compatibility mode because of the multivalue field feature that allows me to enter multiple locations per novel (it's not supported in earlier versions). If we can keep adding to this thread we will eventually have a complete database.
If anyone wants to help, maybe Alaundo could help coordinate it, if volunteers would choose a few novels or stories and pick out every location of interest it could be done in no time.

CRYPT OF THE MOANING DIAMOND

The Vast

Outside the city walls of Tsurlagol, below the city walls of Tsurlagol, and, briefly, on the city walls of Tsurlagol.

The habits of the citizens of Procampur are frequently discussed, but the city is not visited except in a brief flashback.

Pages 214 and 215 of FRCS are well-thumbed in my copy.

I could tell you did your homework, I'm really enjoying this book so far.



I highly recommend sticky notes. I had several colors which all had different meanings. And my editor at WOTC was very kind about panic e-mails like "I need a camel. Where would camels come from?"

Once I was done with CRYPT, I really wanted to do a book about Procampur. I rather fell in love with ideas of those districts defined by roof tiles.

And for anyone really taken with the idea of geography and the Realms, I'm reading ONCE AROUND THE REALMS by Brian Thomsen. A very fun FR take on one of my favoriter Verne novels.

Really ?
I read a review about this novel on the Candlekeep website and it was not good at all !
It was here : http://www.candlekeep.com/bookshelf/novels/8550.htm

EDIT : was does Verne mean ? Jules Verne ? our great French writer ? I do not think so...

It's a reference to the author Jules Verne.

And indeed, Once Around the Realms ain't too popular around here, but that doesn't mean it can't appeal to anybody.

"Instead of asking why we sleep, it might make sense to ask why we wake. Perchance we live to dream. From that perspective, the sea of troubles we navigate in the workaday world might be the price we pay for admission to another night in the world of dreams."
--Richard Greene (letter to Time)

Yes, it's based on Around the World in Eighty Days. It doesn't use Realms geography except as material for a series of gags. I wonder if it would have been published if it wasn't the idea of the head of the books department.

Once around the Realms doesn't follow The Realms geography ? It's not an official or canon novel ?
