I voted for the Moonshaes.

Close seconds would be Cormyr, Tethyr, & Waterdeep.

I really like the Celtic feel of the Moonshaes, though I also like the Dalelands a lot because of the people that live there and the proximity to Cormanthyr.

Western Heartlands- no idea why.

I like Sembia a lot too -pretty sure I like that one 'cause of Cale .

Anyone who likes to read something that's really dark and gritty and completely awesome ought to read The Night Angel Trilogy by Brent Weeks. You can check out a little taste at www.BrentWeeks.com I should probably warn you, though, that it is definitely not PG-13 :-D

He also started a new Trilogy with Black Prism, which may even surpass the Night Angel Trilogy in its awesomeness.

I've always had some interest in Sembia, especially when it was a region left specifically for DM's to develop.

Thus, my Sembia is a very different place from the one currently depicted in the Realmslore.

Well drat. I assumed it would be included in the North, so that's what I picked. ;)

Favorite? Waterdeep, I think... but I'm also a big fan of Maztica, and not afraid to admit it.

Some people are like a slinky... not good for much, but when you push them down the stairs, it makes you smile.

Icewind dale, just pin a sign that says "Drizzt fan" on me.

Redwall. Drizzt. Kentucky. Enough said.

I was weaned on 2E Baldur's Gate. Learned 3.5E, and can't stand 4E WoF. (Though I try not to mess up canon too badly).

The Sword Coasts. My arrival to Faerun was in the deep water harbor of Waterdeep. I fell in love with the scope of life which inhabits the streets above and halls of Undermountain below. The safety of the ever present Watch and the threat of never diminishing danger struck a fine balance of what one could expect in life. Loads of political intrigue and a thick, mysterious network of officials and non officials also played a hand in stealing my admiration.

My favorite area is the Sword Coast. Right now though, I'm a huge fan of the High Forest (what I voted for because I missed the Sword Coast option) and also Cormyr. And yet, I always seem pulled back to where it all began for me... the Sword Coast.

Rashamen. A people of warriors and shield maidens, ruled by masked witches who take no lip, and are just plain awesome. Even the very land itself is awake with old and mighty power. Puts off a great Norse feel and mood.

My second would have to be both Evermeet, and Cormanthyr in Elminster's time. Simply because elves are awesome.

Chose the Dales, really like the variety and they are surrounded by adventuring opportunity on all sides! And we're adventuring there in our current campaign.

Definitely Netheril, mainly due to my love of wizards and magic. I also really like the Sword Coast (likely due to too many hours playing Baldur's Gate), Icewind Dale (I still think there should be an Icewind Dale trilogy that actually spends all its time on the Dale...) and Cormanthyr (the Myth Drannor from Elminster in Myth Drannor is one of my favourite cities, in any fantastic world).

Kozakura. Hands-down.

Oh! You mean in Faerūn? In that case, it would have to be Waterdeep and surrounding area.

Got to be silverymoon, Mithral Hall (the dwarves!!), and Waterdeep! Though old Myth Drannor is up there, too.

I'm a big Icewind Dale fan - mainly because of the two CRPGs which managed to evoke, through image and, principally, sound a very unique sense of place. The first IWD novel, as well, is very effective in this regard.

Rashemen is an awesome place and I love the lore associated with it.

But, for very different reasons, so is Halruaa and I'd have to say, thanks in no small part to Elaine's excellent 'Counsellors and Kings' series, Halruaa just edges it for me. Amongst other things, if I was a Faerunian, that's the kind of place I'd like to live...

Recently started reading The Lost Empires book on Ancient Netheril, I'm liking this place. Lots of magic being tossed around- no wonder it was eventually destroyed...
