I voted for Amn, I think it is a great setting. I've yet to run it and havn't played there either. Other than Balder's gate II. But I'm planning on making that a major focus of my next Forgotten Realms campaign. Which should start late 2010, after I finish the one I'm running now.

I'm listing if I've played, DM below. And leave the settings blank if I've done neither.


Thay DMed
Amn
Calimshan
Netheril/Anauroch
The Dale Lands DMed and Played (in more than one campaign) really like the Dales
Cormyr DMed and Played
Halruaa
Mulhorand DMed
The Sword Coast Played
The Moonshae
The North
The High Forest

I'm always fascinated by Netheril, ever since it's glory days in Karsus's time and till now, when Shade Enclave is in rise to power. So my vote goes to it.

Every beginning has an end.

Sword Coast definitely.

I voted the North, but for me that includes everything from Daggerford to the extreme north in equal measure.

I have a dream that one day, all game worlds will exist as one.

I kinda like the Western Heartlands myself. Definitely has a sort of 'wild frontier' feel that shows no favoritism for any particular alignment or faith, with large tracts of wild and dangerous lands of all sorts of different climates and terrain hiding many ancient fallen civilizations and their dungeons while still being dotted with enough large independent city-states for folks more interested in urban intrigue. And while it may not have deserts or oceans, they're still accessible from the Western Heartlands being adjacent to both the Anauroch and the Sword Coast. Seems like the only things really missing are a jungle and the influence of a strong national cultural identity. There's enough blank slate there for a good DM to come up with all sorts of interesting plot hooks without the concern of clashing with established canon (mind you, not that there's anything wrong in tinkering with the setting to fit your needs).

I voted for the Dalelands (especially since the my favorite PC, Drustan, originally came from Harrowdale), but I also really like The Moonshaes (because they have a very Celtic feel, and I'm of Scottish/Irish descent), Waterdeep, The North, Rashemen, Silverymoon, Cormanthyr... NWAA!!! There are too many places I like to list!! (Maybe I should have kept things simple and said, "Anywhere but Thay.")

Too little covered. For me, it's most anything roughly north of Baldur's Gate.

I voted for the Sword Coast. Which I think covers anything roughly north of Baldur's Gate and Waterdeep.

Um, it covers the entire Sword Coast.

Rashamen, The Western Heartlands, The Sword Coast, and The Silver Marches are all wonderful places to adventure.

I voted for the Dale Lands, but really for me it's all about the Mythals, particularly Myth Drannor.

This poll needs an "Other" option. Zakhara would be my pick.

I would choose the Sword Coast, if only because the Western Heartlands aren't an option. I've always been drawn to the eastern end of the Chionthar valley and the River Reaching, specifically Irieabor and the Sunset Vale.

The Dragon Coast would be a strong second. I so wish there had been a proper sourcebook for the region, or at least a Volo's Guide to the Dragon Coast.
