The Realms are vast and teeming with locations ripe for a novel or series. Many locations have been used plenty of times before for novels (Waterdeep, Neverwinter, etc), while many have remained untouched. I realize the novel line is all but dead, but let's have some fun anyway.

If you could pick a new setting/location for a Realms novel what would it be?

Zakhara would be my choice.

I'd love to see something set in Nimbral, personally. It's a different beast than the other magocracies of the Realms, what with the Leira angle, and I think you could tell some fun stories there.

The east. Thay, the Old Empires, Tymanther. There are just a few novels set there. The place has a lot to offer still.

Long ago, in the distant past, they fell into decay. The philosopher’s path... The river of glory... Even the saints resting in the darkness rise up without response and block the way...

I’m very much an outlier in this regard but I’ve always wished that the Realms had stayed “Faerűn”. I’ve found none of the add ons inspiring and several of them cringe-worthy. But I would have loved to have seen a novel set in Sossal. A novel of depth mind you that showed us this place in coherent and understandable detail.

Not so much a specific place, but a specific focus - the Duergar get a lot of screentime as secondary characters or as antagonists, but I don't think I've seen a single book focused on them. A story set in say, Gracklstugh. Or Dunspeirrin, for that matter, could work. Given how boring Laduguer comes off as sometimes, focusing on a city that follows Deep Deurra would probably be more entertaining.
