I prefer the North, especially further North, for I am enjoying a great time killing orcs and goblins while occasionally running into an Aurilian cleric.

You will have new powers when you are reborn, a form better to serve me with. -Manshoon of Zhentarim,

Sounds like the Icewind Dale computer games. Ah, those had some classic moments.

I chose the Sword Coast for Waterdeep, although the North's adventure hooks makes it a close second (not to mention throwing frost worms at the characters ).

I also choose the Sword Coast, but included some of the Western Heartlands. Waterdeep is such a perfect place to start, run, or conclude any adventure and the High Forest is rife with mysteries to throw at people - good places!

Tough call between the Dales (and Cormanthor) and the Silver Marches. I went with the North, because it seems to be the up-and-coming place, and it's upriver from Waterdeep!

What?! These Realms are forgotten?

I like anywhere in the Heartlands.

I would have to say that the north, especially the sword coast region. It has the feel of what the realms is to me.

Definately Amn, one of the best places to adventure. It's chock full of chaos and opposing factions and far-reaching consequences. One only has to flip through Cloak & Dagger or the Amn sourcebook (name escapes me - also has Calimshan and Tethyr detailed - by Steven) to gain a dozen varied ideas on adventures for Amn. I've recently (as in this weekend) become a DM, and this is the place where I'll be taking them, allowing them to shape the future of the country as it struggles through its Reconstitution.
Incidentally, I heard a while back that Ed was going to do an update article on this area. Has this come out yet, or do I still wait hopefully?

So sayeth the Smyther, the Dark Bard of Amn.

Netheril/Anauroch is my favorite hunting grounds and realm, for the desert sands conceals many worthy mysteries and artifacts to be found not to mention Netherese ruins, even the occassional run-in with the Shadovar seemed fun enough especially when it comes to looting.

I went with the North in the end, though it was a tough call. It's just been where I've had the most adventuresome fun.

Life is either daring adventure or nothing.

I threw my vote to Amn, the land of coin.
Amn just has such many intrigues, and with the Shadow Thieves around one never knows what will turn up. Yes, the Shadow Thieves must be one of the greatest reasons for my vote.
I've also gotten a very rich and detailed image of Amn. It is very realistic in a way due to all of the politics and powermongering goin on.

And that be the end of that story.

I'm currently -besotted- with the Great Dale. So much history, so many adventure/campaign hooks and no novels to "butt in" on the stories my players and I want to explore.

I voted The North because I find it the most traditional of all fantasy settings.

That said, Amn was a close second because of all the intrigue possible.

I voted the North, but I like the Sword coast north too.

My second favorite region would have been the Moonsea area.

The Sword Coast is my choice. Just can't get enough. And I don't think I'll ever get bored with it.

High Forest! The most interesting forest I ever read about in all my ventures of reading about the realms. That place is full of stuff and it is a huge forest. You can't beat that! Plus I love woodlands. An elf at heart.

I went for The Sword Coast, after having spent so much time there in the Baldur's Gate games and books etc. I'll always have fond memories of that place!

Rashemen for the mysticism and spiritualism, and Sembia for the intrigues and exquisite "decorum"...

Wow! What an incredibly difficult question to answer. If I had to pick, I'd pick the Dalelands. I'd love to see some of the less explored lands on the list: Chult, The Unapproachable East, etc.

This is a hard choice. Of the alternatives on the list I would say the Dalelands, but if they were alternatives I think I would say the Western Heartlands or the Dragoncoast. The main reason for this is that these areas are the ones I have worked the most on myself.
