Not necessarily. Unless the scribe has specifically noted a deviation from accepted canon in what he/she has posted, we can usually expect that most of what is discussed on these shelves relates to official [and canon] Realmslore.

A lore question could just as easily come up on these forums, but most often they are tied to the gaming side of the Realms.

I agree Sage, but as you write, we CAN EXPECT that MOST OF...
But it's only details. I have to admit thaht indeed, most of those adventures stay within canon universe.
I just want to be sure I read official data.

I think it's fun to see how other people use the setting. Canon or not, the threads in the gaming forums aren't as obnoxious as stuff like "Elminster and Drizzt, who would win?"

"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."

obnoxious ? a moment please...
*an English-French dictionary use later*
Oh yes ! Of course Miss !
Those threads (Those / These ) are simply stupid !
They are threads for... euh... we say "Gros-Bill" in French : "The brains of the canary and the fire power of the nuclear aircraft carrier"
You know, those PC who have all the possible (or not) artefacts, all the weapons, all the scrolls, all the spells, who hunt experience, want to be the most powerful PC of the world !
Those who play for numbers and not to live their character...
How could I say it in English ?

Indeed.

Hmm, how about "Roll-player?" I'll admit, the first word that popped into my head was "powergamer". But then someone is bound to come by and say, "NOOOOOOO! It's possible to roleplay and powergame, I've done it lots of times", and I don't want to spark that debate.

Well, that shouldn't be a problem then, since most scribes tend to conform to the official lore more often than not.

Well, I don't, but I will always make clear if it is canon, speculations around the same or pure personal lore. This seems to be the common practise.
